First full-length trailer for The Hunger Games!!! It looks so good.

Ahhhhhh, HOLY CRAP, IT LOOKS SO GOOD!!!!!!! The first full-length trailer for The Hunger Games was released, man oh man. I got chills like 4 times watching it.

The film is set in the future (but not too cliche futuristic) where the US is split into districts. Every so often they have “Hunger Games” where one boy and girl from each district fight to the death.

If you haven’t read The Hunger Games trilogy, I suggest you do it before the movie comes out. I always like reading books before a movie. But if you’re one of those lazy people that only wants to see the movies, here’s the trailer for the first book of the trilogy, The Hunger Games.

It stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson. Amazingly enough, it seems like the movies will be better than the books, which is rare, but not surprising considering the books aren’t very well written. I’d compare them to Twilight in that the story and characters are very interesting, but the author doesn’t have a very strong voice. It’s very elementary at times, the characters lack depth, there are plot holes, some events are extremely predictable, etc. Maybe a director and screenwriter will be able to expand on the story and characters to make it more interesting? We’ll see. It’s also SUCH a visual story. A lot of reading the book requires imagination. It’ll probably make the story much more interesting to see it actually like………..on the screen. The whole battle grounds and some of the scenes.

I LOVE the casting of Liam and Jennifer, but Josh doesn’t seem like he’s a fit for Peeta? We’ll have to see. Anyway, who’s excited about this? I sure am!!

  1. Robin you are absolutely right. ‘Twilight’ sueffrs from this same dilemma. The movie makes so much money, but they don’t put that money back in the film, so it looks cheap. I saw Immortals this weekend, and you can tell they invested a lot of money in the project. It’s funny if you think about it, because ‘The Hunger Games,’ and ‘Twilight’ will both make more than ‘Immortals,’ but they still won’t invest in the movie properly. Thanks for your comment I think the studios are worried about losing money
