Today is a monumental day for fans of The Hunger Games! The new and oficial trailer, the one that is actually a trailer, not the one where she is running around in the woods for a minute and a half, has premiered! We have watched it and we love it, and we hate it, but mostly love it. Of course it is not going to be how one envisions the movie in their head, but I am getting the vibe that the cast of characters is not portraying them as they were in the books, perhaps it’s just this commercial not effectively showing character types. Either way, this is the most exciting thing to happen for a long time and since I love the books I am sure the movie will not disappoint overall. For those of you who do not want to waste a few minutes searching for this trailer, we did all the work for you, so sit back, relax, and enjoy!
The Hunger Games, a book series by Suzanne Collins, has become very popular recently. This series includes the books The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. The series is set in the future and is pretty much about these kids who are randomly selected from their home districts to fight to the death in an arena. Now, since this book has become so popluar Lionsgate made it into a film.
Filming for the movie began in May in North Carolina. It was wrapped up in early September. The movie should be released in March but it hasn’t been said where Lionsgate will hold the premiere.
Only one additional movie has been confirmed so far. Catching Fire is to be released on November 22, 2013. The company has a deal that encompasses four movies even though there are only three books. However, this does not mean that four movies will be made.
This movie stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, Amanda Stenberg as Rue, Alexander Ludwig as Cato, and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. There are eight movie posters out depicting these characters.
