A Nod to the Hunger Games Trailer
Maybe it’s an erroneous assumption, but I’m going to guess that there are many Harry Potter fans out there who have fallen for Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games. I’m always a little late to the party, if you haven’t noticed, but I caught up with this series over the summer, just in time to anxiously await the first film. And by “caught up” I mean devoured with my jaw hanging open.
After a lackluster teaser clip a few months ago, we finally have a complete trailer. Check it out below:
What do you think? You’re pretty accustomed to amazing books being turned into films at this point, what with the 7-books-turned-8-movies deal you’ve been through with Harry Potter. Some of you may even be Twilight fans (why? for the love of all that is literature, why?) We all know what it’s like when a book is turned into an amazing movie (Deathly Hallows) and when a movie all but destroys our favorite story (Goblet of Fire).
Do you think The Hunger Games will live up?
Right now, I’m a little worried they are gunning for the Twihard contingency. While I haven’t watched more that a few minutes of any Twilight movie at a time (because I can’t stomach all that angst – it makes Half-Blood Prince look downright jolly), I can tell you it’s not a paramount of fine film making. For all their faults, at least I’m comfortable calling the Harry Potter films “films”.
Do you think The Hunger Games will earn that distinction, or will the cinematic journey into the arena leave fans cold?
