Book to Movie: The Hunger Games Official Trailer

The official trailer was released today. It looks all kind of fabulous! I love that it does not give too much away, but leaves you hanging so that those that haven't finished reading the books yet can still have a chance to read it between now and March 23, 2012. (If that is you, you NEED to read this asap!)

Things I like so far:
  • Jennifer Lawrence looks perfectly cast as Katniss - she's bad ass, but also everyone's girl at the same time.
  • Lenny Kravitz as Cinna!
  • The cinematography looks amazing. Rarely do movies look better than what I imagined, but since I didn't know what to imagine most of the time while reading the book, the clips in the trailer really give a lot of depth to the background of the story.
Things I wasn't expecting:
  • I'm "Team Gale" and he doesn't look the way I pictured. He looks so much manlier than I pictured him... I kind of imagined him in a more delicate way... a la Orlando Bloom as Legolas in Lord of the Rings, perhaps?
Can you tell that I'm SUPER excited?! How about you?

To view the trailer in all it's beauty, check it out from iTunes here.


  1. I never thought of Gale that way, it's kind of an interesting thought. I do agree about the cinematography, though.

  2. II think it's because he's so good with a bow and arrow and whenever I think of a man with a bow and arrow, I go straight to Orlando Bloom. :)
