I thought about filming my reaction to the trailer like last time but its a good thing I didn't because I cried the first time I watched it. Embarrassing but true. >.<
This trailer just further cements in my mind that the movie is gonna be FANTASTIC. Its literally like Lionsgate read my mind about what I wanted in the trailer and then put it on screen. The one thing I wanted to see most of all was the reaping scene and what did we get? THE REAPING SCENE! The part where Katniss volunteers gets me choked up every time. And when Gale carries away Prim? My heart just breaks. :(
What's so brilliant about this trailer is that it's great for fans and non-fans alike. Not only that but having the reaping scene in the trailer shows the relationship between Katniss and Prim and it also creates an emotional connection with the audience. My mom said even she started getting choked up at that part! Another thing I loved was that they had pretty much no hint of romance in the trailer. I was afraid they would try to play up the love triangle but so far so good! I also really liked that they had barely any footage of the arena. Its a really good marketing ploy for Lionsgate since they didn't give away too much of the movie. I hate it when it feels like a trailer reveals the whole movie but this trailer doesn't feel that way at all. Its just plain brilliant. The anticipation of what is to come is killing me. :P
Was the trailer everything that you hoped it would be? Which part was your favorite? Was there any scene that you really wished had made it in the trailer? Personally I would have loved to see the opening parade of tributes but they can't show us everything can they?
WHO ELSE CAN'T WAIT FOR MARCH 23, 2012?!?!
