Last night the MTV Video music awards showed us our first look at Lionsgate’s THE HUNGER GAMES. The teaser trailer was introduced by the film’s star Jennifer Lawrence and featured just a few of the more significant aspects of the first book. Below you can find the official teaser for THE HUNGER GAMES and begin preparing for the film next spring.
The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland and more about a future in which the world is comprised of 12 Districts ruled by a cold Capital that forces each district to submit a male and female Tribute to compete in THE HUNGER GAMES annually in a cruel fight to the death.
The trailer itself might disappoint anyone that’s been chomping at the bit to see every little bit of footage possible and all the action, but mainly just features some shot of Katniss scoping out the jungle that takes up THE HUNGER GAMES arena in the first book and listening for any noises she can here and then dodging one of the traps from the arena before reading her bow for a kill shot. The trailer also features the voice of Katniss’ best friend Gales giving her some advice for the games. I really dig the trailer because I wasn’t expecting anything more than text saying stuff like “Next Spring may the odds be ever in your favor” a saying well known in the book minus the “Next Spring” part and then a quick shot of Katniss dodging the fireballs and the title card. So I am actually pretty satisfied with the vibe this trailer gives off.
What are your thoughts on the trailer?
