My Thoughts on the Hunger Games Trailer!!!!!

In case you were living under a rock and missed in the full Hunger Games trailer premiered today!!!! If you haven't seen it YOU MUST WATCH IT NOW! It is 2 minutes and 30 seconds of pure epicness. Even if you have watched it, it doesn't hurt to watch it again right?


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?

  1. I hadn't seen the trailer, but it looks really cool!

  2. OMG! I cry every time I watch this!! EVERY TIME!! It's so what I expected!!! I'm glad I haven't read the book in awhile so I can't pick it apart, but from what I remember it seems like they're going to do an amazing job!!!

    i loved the trailer. i loved how they just had the beginning of the book, the reaping scene, the forest, and the place where they get ready for the games. i really love how touching it is. i want to cry every time i see it. i can't wait to see what they are going to do with the costumes that cinna and portia make! i cannot wait for this movie AT ALL!
    oh, and does anyone know who the guy with the dark hair and beard is? i'm thinking it's seneca, but i'm not entirely sure.

  4. LOVED the trailer! I really liked how it didn't just show them in the Games, but also what led up to it. Great acting! I really would have liked to have seen Katniss and Peeta with the berries, or the moment when Katniss is against the glass after the Games calling for Peeta aboard the hovercraft. Can't wait for the movie!!!!

  5. So amazingly excited for this! I actually think it's going to be amazing and I absolutely can't wait. So far I'm really happy with Jennifer Lawrence; this may sound weird, but I'm happy she doesn't look pretty in the trailer. I was worried that she would look too made up and perfect, but instead she's just like I imagined Katniss. All in all, the trailer just means that I absolutely cannot wait for March 26th!

  6. I was glad too that they didn't show the love triangle. But I did thought that they were showing a little bit to much. Anyway it looks awesome and I can't wait to see it!

    I was just a bit disapponted by the area where Katniss go to the forest, is was to clear to be what I had in mind.. But whatever, it's just a hint, maybe it'll be better in the movie.
