Another day, another piece of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’s PR juggernaut gets hurled at us, the movie-going populace. Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or sucked into the future, forced to don a silver-y spandex jumpsuit [because in the future, that’s what people would wear, ok?], pestered by a bunch of people who resemble famous actors but with insane wigs, and forced to fight to the death all so teen readers can feel good about themselves), you’re aware that The Hunger Games film adaptation did bonkers business back in the halcyon days of 2012, meaning that the 2013 was inevitable. And so here we are, talking about the film’s inevitable international trailer.
Said trailer doesn’t offer up much more than what we’ve previously seen—a hungry populace is on the verge of revolt, and the powers that be wish to publicly break Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) during the 75th Annual Hunger Games. Check it out:
Directed by Francis Lawrence, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire co-stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Jena Malone, Amanda Plummer, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Donald Sutherland, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. The film is set for a release date of November 22.
What do you think of the trailer?
