It’s finally here! As sad as it may be to say, due to certain underwhelming casting choices and the lukewarm teaser trailer, I had pretty much resigned myself for another adaptation disappointment with The Hunger Games. Today’s trailer, however, completely made those feelings disappear. I woke up before 5AM expecting to be able to go back to sleep after viewing the trailer and…nope. Here I am, two hours later, still rewatching it. From the very beginning, I knew Jennifer Lawrence would be amazing for Katniss and she definitely brought it. Even if the rest of the movie ends up disappointing me in the end, she will remain the highlight with her brilliance.
As for everything else…GAH, SO GOOD! They showed the right amount of material and yet there’s still so much left to the book. I can’t wait to see the trailer on the big screen with Breaking Dawn!
So, again, I really loved what they had here and I’m officially excited for the movie again. Plus, as Lindsey mentioned on twitter, one year from now we’ll be seeing the Catching Fire trailer and that means…FINNICK! He’s my favorite of the series, so fingers crossed his casting (and for Johanna, etc) is amazing.
What did you all think of the trailer?
