So, the first non-teaser trailer of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is here. Watching it, a couple of things spring to mind:
1. Prim’s badly acted “Katniss!” (ca 1:28). I’m sorry, but taken out of context, yes, it does seem really badly acted.
2. SPOILER WARNING, WTF! I know you need to reveal all the new actors (like – oh I’ve already forgotten their names – the former winners and Philip Seymour Hoffman) to the horde of waiting fans, but c’mon, you’re completely giving away the surprise twist of what the Quarter Quell is about! IN THE TRAILER! Now everyone who hasn’t read the book will know what to expect too, and it won’t come as the cold shower it is for the characters. Boo!
It looks good, though, I’ll give ’em that.
Catching Fire comes out 22 November 2013.
