Let the Games Begin With ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Teaser Trailer!

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    Looks great, I know it’s premature as this is the only footage that has been released, but I love that the change of director didn’t change the look of the film.

    HOLY CRAP!! this looks really really good! i didn’t expect this to looks as intense as it does!!

    get ready for another diatribe from manwich wishing the world to burn for the fact this movie was even made. LOL.

    Doesn’t look half bad! I found the first film to be a little padded and overlong, also the extremely forced shaky cam scenes were distracting. Hopefully this will fix the problems with that one. I will add that ‘The Hunger Games’ was way above par for that sort of teen novel adaptation.

  • DisturbedPixie

    wow, they are really changing the dialogue from the book. It’s always so hard to see what made the book so engaging being tossed away in the film adaption. That alone makes me always okay with a second film adaption of a novel…. or a third or a fourth, or a fifty-first… keep telling the great tales until they can’t be told anymore.

    Not saying that because it’s different, it’s crap, I just truly love how it was written and would like to see that brought to life on screen. I liked how things were from katniss’ perceptive, and how brutal it was. It was also very funny at times, and they completely cut those parts from the first film. I supposed no adaption will ever do any novel justice, unless the novel was half assed to begin with like American Psycho.

    Sure, I will be seeing this in theaters, but I will always have something to say to compare it to the books I loved. At least I know the scenic designs will be top notch, and the actors can hold their own.

      I have a problem with the premise of the novel in general(I couldn’t believe in the post apocalyptic society/romance plot), but I agree with you on the gore. It was silly to have a movie about kids killing each other in an brutal fashion and we don’t even see it. (Sorry if that sounds sick but that’s what its all about)

  • Aaron Emery

    As someone who has read all three books and found them entertaining, there is no doubt that they were terribly written and edited. I think the films have a real opportunity to improve on the books, hopefully expanding on the political side of the story.

    This trailer was definitely a “teaser” It didn’t show any footage of the “clock” in the games. GRRRRRR I CAN’T WAIT ANY LONGER! The Catching Fire book kicked ass.

  • GothicGuido

    I don’t want to be a negative Nelly here but really? I never thought of this to be horror related. Twilight I understand (vampires/werewolves ) an element in other horror fiction’s… maybe I “have to read the books to get it” lol but it didn’t strike me as even remotely horror.

    • Nothing333

      I don’t find what you’re saying negative. There are zero horror elements. BD does from time to time cover flicks like Total Recall, The Raid( I suppose there was some gore so it kinda fits), and Dredd that are pure sci-fi and don’t fit the websites aesthetic at all so I don’t know. This film is a good example of questionable coverage as there is no horror, minimal violence, light sci-fi elements, large romance and tween appeal. Grin and bear it I guess?

    I still don’t see how this is even remotely horror. Instead of running the risk of sounding like a troll I shall leave now…
