The Hunger Games: trailer

Dont look now, but here's the first Hunger Games trailer. Doesn't show you much but Katniss does seem to be characterised the way I imagined her at least (can tell a lot from a stalk-y run these days dont ya know. I'm supernaturally perceptive! [yes, that's sarcasm] )



I honestly don't know why they insist on making books into films so quickly now. Well, yes, I do, but I'd like to think not everyone in the world is willing to sacrifice the legacy of good writing for a quick buck on the fan-train. It's such a shame that a book can't ride out its own success before people begin to over look it for the hour-and-a-half condensed version with pre-packaged faces.

Having said that, I feel justified in being excited to see the film as I have read it already. I'd like everyone else to do the same, and feel the anticipation without guilt, or the guilt I will impose on you. Fingers crossed it's not another "Golden Compass" type massacre.

  1. They have to sell while its hot to get the best return. It also seems a trend at the moment for Hollywood to create remakes and adaptations. It's easier to work from something than nothing and you also have an existing customer base who will go see the movie.

  2. I agree that there's a trend towards pre-existing, proven-successful content for films at the moment, rather than original ideas. I think it's a shame though. Fans of the book will see the film whenever it comes out... I'd just like a book to see out it's success and live a revival through film rather than it being cut off mid-peak!
