I like movie trailers. So sue me.

“The Hunger Games” Teaser Trailer: Jennifer Lawrence Runs!

with 2 comments

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you’ve probably heard of the literary phenomenon known as The Hunger Games. If you haven’t, get out from under said rock and go buy yourself a real house.


Good. Now, The Hunger Games is a series of books written by Suzanne Collins. (There will be a quiz on this when we’re finished.) They, along with the movie, tell the story of Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence in the movie), a young teenager living in a country called Panem–it’s what used to be North America. Every year, Panem’s government, called the Capitol, makes children fight to the death in a televised competition known as the Hunger Games.

When her younger sister, Prim, is selected to be a “tribute” in the Games, Katniss makes a daring move and decides to take her place. Along the way, she meets Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and the two team up to fight for their lives. Liam Hemsworth also stars as Gale, Peeta’s boyfriend outside of the Games. He’s giving the pep talk/voiceover we hear in the trailer.

It’s only a teaser trailer, so it doesn’t show much, but if you’re a Hunger Games fan like me it gets you pretty excited for the movie. Squee!

Oh, and what could a highly-anticipated blockbuster action flick be without a creepy viral marketing website? Lionsgate’s got that covered, too. Check out http://www.thecapitol.pn–you can connect with Twitter, but since I’m not on Twitter I don’t know what happens.
