    Ahhh, screw iTunes!

  • Finally

    Seriously (and I say this as a fan of so many films and fandoms) this is one of the best trailers I have ever seen. The emotion and suspense is unreal. I actually got really nervous as it progressed from the Reaping to the Opening of the games. I haven’t even seen a good quality version of it, but the way it was put together was extremely well done. Good job editing team. I’m ready. Let the 74th annual Hunger Games begin.

    • LuigiBarraza

      Jennifer Lawrence is amazing, i almost cried. I never cry.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JKDKYBXUGFK6UITCPM2BHLOM44 Liz Lemon

        Really?? I was more impressed with Josh Hutcherson in the trailer than her. I can’t put my finger on exactly what it was, but you could tell Jennifer was acting. It didn’t seem very natural. Josh was excellent though. Gale was perfect. And EFFIE is WOW!!!!

        • ella

          Ewwww Josh has no place in this movie. HE IS NOT PEETA

    • shezzypants

      and what helps the trailer is the timing of the music. E.g when the drum beat comes up, Katniss spins, showing off her dress at 1:28 right after Cinna says he’s here to help her make an impression.

      March 23rd is too far away!

      • Claudia

        And not even the music, even the overvoice placing was dead on. 

        “theyre not gonna pick you” – Effy reaches into the pool
        “Help you make in impression” – Katniss spins
        “From the ages of twelve” – camera on Rue – “to eighteen” – camera on Caro
        “prepared to fight to the death” – caro chops dummys head off.

        Perfection! March couldn’t come quicker!

    • Allison

      And may the odds be ever in your favor.

    • Sean95h

      gave me chills

  • Shantelle

    At 1:33 thats her opening ceremonies costume!!! OMG!

  • Jen

    Amazing! Wow!  Speechless!

  • https://twitter.com/#!/HarriFSargeant Harri Sargeant

    Oh wow!  It is far better than I expected, and really captures everything just how I imagined them!

    I was so worried about what this trailer was going to be like after the last one and all I can say is: WOW!

  • Emma

    I got chills. Wow. It feels just like it should be. An the knowledge of how many are dropping dead in the last clip is aweful, even though they don’t show it. 

  • 7Starrchasers

    AH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG OMG I DIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hannahg533

    This may be a first, but I don’t think I have anything negative to say!  I loved seeing Cinna and Haymitch.  Everything seemed to be done pretty much like in the book.  Effie looked kind of scary lol.

  • http://twitter.com/krislintz K

    SO AMAZING. The movie is going to be SO perfect. It seems like its word for word from the book. Going to be such an incredible adaptation.

  • Hannah

    wow, that was amazing.

  • spange

    oh god oh god i’m so excited this trailer was AMAZING. one of the best trailers i’ve EVER seen! they put in so much without giving too much up, mind = blown, and the acting was great, the actors, costumes & sets all look TERRIFIC! I CAN’T WAIT A MINUTE LONGER FOR MARCH 2012! :D

    That… sucked! I’m not going to this movie, but I didn’t like the book either

    • http://twitter.com/angrykittykj Krystol

      Why would you see a movie if you didn’t like the book? Just to go and be a troll? Seriously, if you don’t like something, ignore it. Don’t be a jerk.

  • YasthilMaharaj

    amazing. spectacular. 

  • DreamNox58

    SO much love, words can’t describe my feelings.

  • Shantelle

    It. Is. Amazing! 
    I have watched it three times already!!! When are they going to post screen shots? I need a new wall paper!

  • Patricious

    This was well worth the hype (this time around).
    1. Everyone is speaking in their normal accent (save Liam Hemsworth), which is not necessarily what I’d expected.
    2. You can see glimpses of the oddity of the Capitol with the rawness of the woods.
    3. And you get a fair idea of what the book/movie would be about without having had read the books, and without being exposed (yet) to the violence that is to come.

    • Patricious

      If I can have one criticism, Katniss’s dress is not as impressive as I thought it might’ve been…

  • erin

    OMG! OMG! OMG! XD I am super excited for this. This is one of the best trailers this year and everything is here. The suspense, drama, thrill, emotions…I just can’t wait for March 23, 2012. What an incredible trailer :D:D:D

  • Anonymous

    I’m in class right now so I had to watch it on mute, but even without sound IT WAS SPECTACULAR!!!!!!!

  • Shantelle

    The sound of her voice when she screamed Prims name makes me tear up!!!
    Rue looks adorable and Cato terrifying!!! I wish we could have seen Thresh… Maybe he is there, one more time?

    At like 1:36ish when they hold up the magnifying glass thing you can see them in the distance on fire!!! This movie is going to be amazing!

    • Shantelle

      You do get a glimpse of him like in the last few seconds!!!

      • goldensnidget

        I thought when we saw Peeta’s face after Effie announced his name was pretty heartbreaking too – that’s the bit that teared me up :(

        • Shantelle

          That too!!! Katniss looked heartbroken too.

          • Skye H.

            yeah you can tell she’s holding it together and trying to look blank, like in the book, but he’s visibly broken. heartrending.

    • 7Starrchasers

      ME TOO..I’ve watched it like 4 times, and each time, her screaming Prim’s name makes me tear!

      • shezzypants

        her desperation to volunteer got me.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JKDKYBXUGFK6UITCPM2BHLOM44 Liz Lemon

        I think the most emotional part is Josh’s face after they’re both up on the stage and the part where Josh is talking about dying on his on terms.

    • HermioneCriss

      her voice sounds a lot like ginny in deathly hallows when hagrid carries back harry. the same desperate yell… :(

      • Kaite

        Yeah, except Jennifer Lawrence is a good actress and you actually believe her desperation…

        • Starkid Elizabeth

          No Bonnie Wright is still better. I love Harry Potter more than Hunger Games but this will be AMAZING

    Wow. Wow. Wow. I wish I could put my thoughts into words, but I’m too overwhelmed by the awesomeness that was this trailer. Plus in tears after the Reaping scene.

  • hermy0209

    omgomgomgomgomgomg i am sooooo excited!!!!!! this looks absolutely amazing!!!! :) :)

  • Dil_m17

    To be honest, I wish there was more. Instead of them showing full scenes for 30 seconds, I would have rather seen 10 scenes for 3 seconds. I wanted to see more of the Captiol, the Hob, and more of the actual Hunger Games.

  • 7Starrchasers

    Now that I’ve calmed down…I have to say the trailer was perfect, it had EVERYTHING I wanted to see…and for the first time, the scenes are almost EXACTLY like I pictured it to be in my head, couldn’t be HAPPIER =) P.s I think they nailed it with the Music!

  • Aaa

    the book was 100 times better, than the movie is going to be i guess

    Outstanding, literally outstanding. 

  • Giavanna

    awesome trailer, this looks like an incredible movie. Now I just have to read the books before going to the cinema. Everyone on hypable and mugglenet seems to like this series. Is it worth it?

    • TeamPeeta101

      yes yes yes yes yes.   The books are really good, but they are nothing like Harry Potter, if that is what you were expects, (which you probably arnt now becuase of the the trailor…..)

  • nodaybut2day7

    this is so unreal… how good this trailer is… i honestly do not have any complaints at all… I CANT WAIT FOR THIS MOVIE :)

  • Kailey-wa

    Oh my god sooooooooooooooo goooooooooooooood!!!! I am totoally pleased. I mean, it’s a teeny bit more Hollywood than I’d like (some of the dialogue, and just the feel of the training), but that’s fine. Totally fine. I think they got as close as they possibly could. I’m thrilled.

  • Mrp1220

    Amazing, I’m so excited for this movie. The countdown had me on the edge of my seat and I liked that they did Rue’s four note whistle at the end again! Overall great trailer!!

  • Theaterboy1

    LOVE IT!!!!! Really looking forward to this movie!!!!

  • Sarah

    This looks SO good. It’s just how I imagined it.

  • Kimmee

    I am actually really glad there is almost no footage of the actually games besides the beginning. The Trailer was amazing I am super impressed!! Can’t wait till March!!!

  • http://twitter.com/cindydesigns Cindy

    Chills!!  It’s better than I ever thought!  It looks soooo good. 

  • Alon

    Can I just say that I was hyperventilating throughout the whole process of finding the link, loading the video and then actually watching the trailer? I don’t know how many times I’ve seen it already! This is amazing and I just have so many positive comments but I can’t really think straight after that.
    One thing though: the end of the trailer was freaking GOLD.

  • Tm_singer_14

    I watched this trailer and got the same feeling I got when I watched the first teaser trailer for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone over ten years ago. Since then, I have never had this feeling until now. What an amazing trailer. The look and feel of the movie exceeds all of my expectations. This is going to be a great movie and after a year when Harry Potter ends and during a year when Twilight ends, this will certainly herald the beginning of a new movie fandom.

    • HermioneCriss

      I completely agree (minus the Twilight part). Chills! This is going to be AMAZING!

      • Allison

        Yes!  And this movie will hopefully have good music.  The emo stuff in Twilight is hardly bearable.

      • Landon Hershey

        Minus the Twilight part is the most important thing you said.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JKDKYBXUGFK6UITCPM2BHLOM44 Liz Lemon

      I’m not as emotionally connected to it as Potter, but I won’t lie. I got VERY excited seeing this story come to life on-screen. March needs to hurry up and get here.

    • Melissa D.

      Hate twilight, but I’m so happy that now that Harry Potter is over, I have something to look forward too! :)

    Excellent Trailer but I was surprised to see that they included a lot of the beginning but not actual shots of the Games. I think they want to attract non readers.  The end is so Epic! well now we just have to wait !

  • http://twitter.com/taylie27 taylore thompson

    So so so excited!!! I haven’t seen a trailer that good in a long time. It didn’t give away the whole story which I love. And it made it seem like, to actually see the games you must come watch it in march! Made my day

  • April

    I want to look at the screencaps but I can’t stop watching the trailer…I love when she sceams “Prim!” just captures all the emotions from the book.. I can’t wait.

  • http://twitter.com/Merina2 Merina

    I wish I could say I loved it, but…I kept sniggering at all the wrong moments. All that epic music and dramatic smashes to people saying lines to make an IMPACT…oh dear.

  • linzmo

    It is way more than I expected, in that it was a GREAT trailer. I saw a banner last night at the movies and now we get a trailer, this is so exciting, I can’t wait to see the trailer on the big screen.  They did a really great job of explaining what the movie was going to be about while still giving fans what they wanted too.

  • Meredith Sims

    I’m at school so I jad to sneak and watch it in the library and I got in trouble because I was screaming too loud. This has everything!!! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. I’ve read the books and I got the same feeling when I watched the trailer. I was holding my breath the entire time. Now I can’t wait for this movie to come out and for Hunger Games Chat do sceen by sceen chat (like they did for the Harry Potter trailers) and I would like to hear what they think.

    This trailer is ABSOLUTELY amazing!! The suspense, the drama, the cast, the look and feel of it… (even the way the trailer’s edited) it was PERFECT! Never has a movie made me this excited.

  • Kelsey

    I keep rewatching it. And I /keep/ getting chills. I can’t remember being this excited for a trailer in a very long time. Probably since the fourth Harry Potter film. I can’t even express how amazing I think this movie is going to be.

  • http://twitter.com/sparklylulz Grace Elephanteee

    It’s rare a trailer can make me tear up, but Jennifer Lawrence’s acting as she volunteers to be a tribute gave me chills. This looks incredible and I really wish it were March already.

  • http://twitter.com/angrykittykj Krystol

    Um… I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to break down and cry in the middle of a trailer before. I have goosebumps and I was literally leaning into the screen the whole time I watched it. Any reservations I had about this movie have disappeared. Can it be March yet?

    This really looks perfect. I’m still unsure about Haymich because he doesn’t get much time on, but Cinna was fantastic, and Katniss and Peeta were spot on in performance, even if they don’t look quite how I pictured them. This is going to be fantastic.

  • ladyeveli

    ITS SO F***ING PERFECT :))) I CAN’T WAIT :)))))))))

  • LaurenFF

    I actually found myself sobbing watching this! Partially because of the heartbreaking emotion of it all, partly because everything on the screen was exactly how I pictured it, or even better! Love that they perfectly set up the suspense and told the non-reader audience the premise without beating you over the head with it. LOVED the Katniss and Peeta on the roof scene! March 23rd is my birthday and now I know more than ever it will be full of nothing but awesome!!!!

    My friend and I both cried a little during the reaping scene( and i never cry!) and Stanley Tucci is so good at not looking like himself in films like this! I didn’t even realize that was Caesar until i stared at the still for a while. GREAT trailer! Really hope to see this in front of Breaking Dawn, or some movie very soon so i can see it on the big screen and freak out afterwards with my friends!!! :D

  • Effie26

    VERY IMPRESSIVE! I don’t need to repeat what the other commentors have said. The trailer nailed it! Can’t wait to see the film on March! :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/tyrs4u Jose Antonio Valencia

    So basically the series is a rip-off of “Surviving the Game (film), The Running Man (book/film)” but with a cute ‘colorful’ twist? Basically they took the Adults that run/fight for their life; and made them children. yeah not my cup of tea. hope people actually like it.

    • Caroline

      Have you even read a synopsis of the book?

    • Amy

      I’m not entirely sure how anyone could think of children fighting to the death as ‘cute’ or ‘colourful’. I think we must have watched different trailers because I didn’t get that impression at all.

    • Skye H.

      did u post that just to fish for nasty responses? b/c usually a view that’s that extremely opposite of everyone else on a site that is obviously devoted to FANS… it’s just… whatever. never mind.

  • Vivian Page

    This should settle everyone’s problems with casting. It looks do good. And beautifully shot!

  • Arabella Figg

    Loved it! I know that everyone has talked about Jennifer being a great actress but I had only seen her in X-Men.  The the trailer didn’t really show much of her acting besides when she screamed Prim’s name, but that one scene was enough! I’m glad that this book-to-movie has real acting potential. I love Harry Potter but there’s no denying that the kids’ acting left something to be desired..I’m happy that it doesn’t looks like I’ll have to suffer through bad acting in these films

  • Shantelle

    From what you can see of their costumes they look amazing!!! Her interview dress absolutely beautiful. And little Rue Oh my gosh! She is so cute! I have most of the screen caps on my facebook and I ma going to make a collage for my wallpaper… I cannot wait till march!!! I hope the trailer is with breaking dawn so I can freak out in the theater Thursday night/Friday morning!!!

    It looks amazing! I’m so glad it has such an intense feel. So emotion packed. That’s really the key here. This isn’t just another “young adult” movie, it’s a rich story with deep and real characters that touch some really thought provoking topics. And it looks like they are capturing that!

  • http://www.eigakanthemovietheater.blogspot.com Jenny Leigh

    The trailer really made it look a lot like the books, which was awesome. So far it just seems right.

  • Larael

    Wow. Really, really great trailer. Everything looks awesome – very visceral and breath taking. I’m definitely pumped. Also, thank goodness they focused on the relationship between Katniss and Prim rather than the love triangle that is sure to unfold. If they wanted to distance this film series from Twilight in any way that was definitely the first step.

  • Matt

    I, for one, appreciated the choices made for this trailer, especially not showing any of the actual games past the very, very beginning.  I like trailers that tease the movie, not give it all away, and I think this set it up very well without showing all the exciting parts.  Jen’s a different Katniss than I imagined, but I can’t (and would never) fault her for that, because she looks like she puts out a pretty good performance and is probably closer to the spirit of Katniss than, say, KStew to Bella, or Dan Radcliffe to Harry (just my opinion, no disrespect meant).    Other than her, I thought Prim and Effie stood out the most, and maybe Cinna.  Also, I liked how they emphasized how lethal Cato was.  Still waiting on Peeta, Gale, Rue, et al.

    • Skye H.

      lethal is a perfect word for him. (i still don’t look forward to his end though. wouldn’t wish that on anyone.)

    Hmmm…I don’t know what I think yet. I’ve just finished the first book and in the process of reading the second so the images are still fresh in my mind. It will be an interesting movie to see.

  • http://twitter.com/WhatTheGrace Grace Nzita

    ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!.. this may be one of the first times that i haven’t complained too much about a trailer. They showed just enough that people who haven’t read the books would understand the plot. 

    I mean i’ve got to give it to Jennifer Lawrence she was brilliant and we only saw 2 mins and 30 secs of it. It was good to see Cinna, Rue, Prim and Cato (he looked scary) I don’t know i’m not really feeling Haymitch’s Backstreet Boys curtain hairstyle.. i don’t know! Josh Hutcherson really really impressed me, he sounds just the way the Peeta in my head does, so i think he’ll do a great job. 

    Liam was okay. Effy looks freakishly scary and gaunt!!! President Snow doesn’t quite have that striking look that i’d imagined when reading the book – i didn’t see any blue lipstick (i think it was?? i need to watch it again) Overall i’m very happy with the trailer. March is such a long way away!!! :(Ad oh in regard to Richard’s comment on the last episode of HG chat about the budget, i think it looks fine, i think they invested enough money on the film. It’s not really a CGI movie until the end so i guess that’s why the budget is not massive, but i assume that it will increase with each film. Marketing wise though we’re going to have to wait and see.

  • Nick

    Effie is a bit older than I imagined and I didn’t picture Cinna as black but they both look brilliant anyways! Amazing trailer, I can’t stop watching it!

    One of the best trailer I’ve ever seen! We were wondering if they would manage to capture the attention of non-readers and I think they couldn’t have done a better job with this trailer. I was watching it with my brother and as soon as it ended, he ask to borrow the first book, and he isn’t a big reader usually! I’m so excited for this movie now!

  • Alohomora

    Roll on March 23!

  • Theaterboy1

    I don’t know about anyone else but when I first saw Caesar (like in the photo above) I didn’t recognize Stanley Tucci AT ALL!! They did a GREAT job turning him into Caesar Flickerman!

  • Hannahg533

    Did anyone else notice Prim wearing the mockingjay pin?  You can see it in this screenshot. I wonder how that is going to play out in the movie.

    • Skye H.

      I would imagine, it plays out just like the book… =)

      • Lookat

        I disagree. Prim probably gives the pin to Katniss. I think in the books it was Katniss’ friend that gave her the pin. They will probably eliminate that character in the movie because all she did was give the pin and die. 

        • Hannahg533

          I agree it looks like they have eliminated Madge from the movie. It just bothers me that Prim would have something so valuable while they struggle to survive.  Doesn’t make much sense.  Also, I wonder how Katniss will find out about the rebellion in the other districts if she doesn’t overhear it on the mayor’s TV.

      • Hannahg533

        Except Prim never has the pin in the book.  Madge gives it to Katniss.  They say in the book the pin is worth a lot and “could keep a family in bread for months”.  Don’t you think they would have sold it by now if Prim had it?

  • It’s amazing.

    Oh my God, this is actually amazing. This is the best trailer I’ve ever seen for a book to screen movie – I almost teared up. It’s perfect. PERFECT.

  • cynniss

    wow, this looks amazing. can’t wait to watch the movie!!! team katniss!

  • Andrea

    OMG! I would have balled my eyes out if not for the fact that I’m in a public library right now. I have a feeling that Jennifer Lawrence is going to be an incredible Katniss. :D

  • Adriana

    I just finished reading the book, I cried so much . I just loved it, I hope the movie is such breathtaking as the book was . Tomorrow I will start the second book …

    • Skye H.

      You just think you cried after the first book. Poor Adriana you have seen nothing yet.

  • Amy

    This just looks… incredible! I literally have nothing negative to say. I’m so pleased Jennifer was cast as Katniss; after watching Winter’s Bone I had high hopes and now after seeing this trailer I love her even more!
    All the characters are really close to how I imagined, with the exception of President Snow. I expected him to look far more severe and cruel, but now that I think about it, the fact that he doesn’t look evil at first glance makes the character even more sinister.
    I can’t even express how excited I am for this movie. March 2012 can’t come fast enough! :D

  • Chey

    aaaaaaaah!!!!……..AAAAAH!!!! I’m so excited now!

  • Fee Oath

    Did I just wet my pants?  This looks SO GOOD and INTENSE!!  I watched this 7 times in the school hallway while screaming.  CAN’T WAIT.  Jennifer Lawrence is flawless, I don’t know why she got so much hate.

    I’m not gonna lie, I definitely got a little teary-eyed.

    wow this looks amazing!!! i hope it’s good!!!!!!!!! im trying to keep my expectations low because i dont want to be disapointed but this trailer just ruined that! this movie looks fantastic!

    THIS LOOKS SO GOOD. Rue looks perfect, Effie is chilling, and the entire story looks like it shall be done justice. I’m so excited!

  • Camille Shotts

    Oh my gosh, this is going to be so fantastic. And kudos to whoever cut the trailer for not playing up the romantic storylines, I was definitely worried they were going to try and make that the main focus, but this was amazing! I can’t wait for the movie!

  • Kirsten

    So. Impressive. I’m blown away. The Reaping scene actually made me tear up a bit, and all the actors are GREAT. However, just about everything in the Capitol is NOTHING like how I imagined it. Like the operating room where Katniss is getting ready? What? Also, the training gym seems too… high-tech. But it’s what they picked. And District 12 looks fantastic, though not what I was expecting.

  • Sabrina

    Rue’s four note song was at the end again. Also, now we know Gale’s voice is not an voice saying, “all they want is a good show”, is not during the games like in the teaser trailer.

  • Chelsea

    This trailer looked awesome! it makes me so excited for the movie!! i’m so happy they kept in that Prim initially got chosen as tribute..they could’ve easily changed that but i’mso happy they didn’t .. so stoked!!

  • http://twitter.com/blessedbyacurse Becky

    Wow wow wow. I love the style. It’s like futuristic 1940s or something.

    I’m still a little wary because the books are so violent and the movie has to keep it PG13 which might affect the story, but this trailer is definitely getting my hopes up.
    At the very least, it will be beautiful to watch even if it doesn’t stick to the story line!

  • Lookat

    I am blown away. I was skeptical whether this movie would be good or not, but just Jennifer L.’s portrayal of Katniss alone with bring me to the theater to see this movie! I HATED Katniss in the books, but I think I’m going to love her in the movie. A+ Lionsgate!

  • Alyss

    I cried not out of excitement. I cried when Katniss volunteered for Prim. The emotion of that scene was unreal.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000135602388 Lindsey Nestor

    My expectations were honestly really low, and this COMPLETELY shot way beyond my expectations. It was absolutely fantastic. Everything looks so close to how I pictured it in the books. I am completely sold on pretty much all of the actors and actresses. The music constantly had my heart pounding. I loved the build up to the games, and how it ended with so much intensity! My goodness I can’t even get over how well that was done. March 23rd could not come sooner. 

  • http://twitter.com/PerphektMe Stephanie

    That was MUCH better than I was expecting. I am SOOOO excited for this movie!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=646371872 Elizabeth Lee Hammons

    I am so EXCITED!!! I used to be skeptical about Jennifer Lawrence, but she is perfect. Every time I watch this and Katniss yells Prim’s name, I cry. And the music is just so incredible. My only complaint is that there isn’t enough Peeta.

  • Beckybaby1996

    so effin’ exicted!!!!!!!!!!

  • Beckybaby1996

    did they mess up the Peeta line about being a piece of their games? It sounded weird to me, but i haven’t read the books in a while. Did they he say it right?

  • Cutpaper123

    I’m so happy with this trailer. Especially the fact that they put the importance where the importance was needed. The stress of the games, the panic in the reaping, the bleak district life. They didn’t make a big deal about the romance. You knew it was there, since there were these beautiful teenagers, but it was not overdone. YAY ! :)

  • Maria

    I expected it to be a bit more fantasy-like, which I love, but I was very surprised to see that it has more a sci-fi feel. I loved it! Jennifer Lawrence is amazing!

  • Maddie Hatter

    Wow. So, I have to say I was really skeptical about all this, because the teaser trailer, or whatever it was, did not impress me at all.  This, however, really did. :)  My only complaint is that I do not at all like the look of Cinna, and to a lesser degree that of Caesar Flickerman.  Otherwise, this trailer was pretty fabulous. It was exciting, and I got a good glimpse of most the characters- though it was strange that there was more of Gale than Peeta… but whatever. It was even really emotional- the shot of Gale sitting huddled up on the hillside as the Gamemakers count down really got to me.  I can’t wait to see this in theatres!

  • Bernardotriana

    I didnt really like the trailer :/ we didnt get to see the games :(

    • lady sybil

      no, but it sets up the story really well.

  • Bernardotriana

    I always imagined Effie being pretty… When i thought of Effie i always imagined she would look like Rita Skeeter in harry potter… She is really scary :/

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JKDKYBXUGFK6UITCPM2BHLOM44 Liz Lemon

      Really?? Her description in the book is anything but pretty.

  • Luna

    I will die unless I see the movie

  • CDivley

    holy shit.. that was awesome! almost exactly, EXACTLY how i imagined everything..woww.

  • Kavitha

    That was so amazing. Seriously…I was captivated every second. I was not expecting the trailer to be this awesome, but it definitely surpassed my expectations. Looking forward to this even more now!!!


    Jennifer Lawrence’s acting looks top notch.Cinna was my favorite character in the trailer.The capitol looked really good and the futuristic style reminded me of star wars.Josh is Peeta.I like the tone of the film because it reminds me of Harry Potter GOF.As a fan It looks like they are going in more of a Harry Potter direction instead of Twilight.As far as the tone and the depth of the main character.

  • Clive

    Please don’t shoot me down for knowing next to nothing about The Hunger Games but why does the Hunger Games take place?  Is it just about culling teenagers? because I can think of more effective ways.
    Anyway, I’m still not sure why this is such a massive deal but I’m intrigued enough to probably watch it.

    • Anonymous

      Basically, the Hunger Games happening as a form of punishment. The countries are made up of Districts, and the Districts attempted to rebel against the Capitol 75 years earlier. The Games are a “reminder” from the Capitol of what happens when people try to break away.

      • Clive

        Oh!  Why didn’t the trailer tell me that?  That sounds like quite an interesting premise.

  • Lucas Iddings

    They say this footage is only from the first half of the movie, but would rue’s death scene where she holds up the sign to discrtrict 11 really be in the first half?

    • Shelby

      I thought the same thing.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_JKDKYBXUGFK6UITCPM2BHLOM44 Liz Lemon

      Yeah probably. I think the first part of the film will consist of her actually getting to the Hunger Games and Rue’s death will probably end it. Then the second half will be her and Peeta trying to survive in the Hunger Games…then getting out, etc.

  • Holly

    OH MY GOSH!!!
    ahhhhhh! *shivers*

  • Holly

    The finger tribute was amazing. My favorite part is the countdown, because it shows the anxiety and most importantly the reaction that we didn’t get to see in the book.

  • Brandon

    that just gave me the chills

  • RavenclawWitch

    I cried, yes, I cried. The anticipation is killing me, and my heart is still pounding hard after watching it several times in a row!!

    I do have a couple disappointments though.. I expected District 12 to be darker, from the coal, and have less plant life. It looks a little too clean to be described as such a poor district. I was also hoping for more in-the-games action, but they will probably release another trailer with more of that.

  • Force Wizard

    The trailer looks amazing. I saw it when it premiered on tv. I loved it. I’m so ready to see the movie. March can’t come fast enough. Everybody looks really good. I’m going into this movie with the attitude that not everything will be like the book so I’ll keep an open mind mind about the changes. Thank you Harry Potter Movies. At the minute Haymitch is the one I’m worried about. Also keeping low expectations will help because sometimes I get very excited for something and the thing that I’m excited for doesn’t meet my expectations. I’m not worried about about this movie. This movie will be good.

  • Anonymous

    This is seriously amazing! I can now say that I’m COMPLETELY satisfied with the casting. It’s very rare that we see a powerful woman protagonist, and Jennifer’s portrayal of Katniss is just superb. Now this is who little girls should start looking up to! *ahem* NOT that one character whose only predicament in life is whether or not she should become a vampire and marry her thousand-year-old boyfriend. *ahem* (Sorry…just had to say it.) Anyway, I Love, love, LOVE this! Haven’t been this excited over a book adaptation since Harry Potter (which seems to be the same case to a lot of the people here). Only disappointment from the trailer: NOT ENOUGH Peeta!!!

  • Peeta

    Holy crap. This is, without a doubt, the most amazing, most awesome trailer of all time. To think that this is only from the first half of the movie and the most exciting parts weren’t even shown. The initial bloodbath looks really amazing though it only lasted for a few seconds. My heart beats like crazy. I can’t even describe what I am feeling right now after almost an hour of watching the trailer. Chills, goosebumps, racing heartbeat. I experienced all of those watching the trailer. Josh and Jennifer are awesome. I can;’wait for March 23rd!

    Just got a heart attack.

    P.S. Help. I can’t stop watching.

    • Shantelle

    I’ve watched this trailer at least 50 times today. It looks amazing, the actors I wasn’t sure about (mainly Jennifer Lawrence) I am completely sold on now. The only one I’m not sure about is Gale, Liam Hemsworth doesn’t fit my vision of Gale. When Katniss volunteers, I tear up! The ending is so epic, too! I am seriously so excited for this movie!

  • YouWillNeverKnowMyName

    O. M. G.  That is all I have to say. It was freaking FABULOUS!

  • emilyful

    This is almost perfect – thank god they didn’t try and sell it on the love triangle thing because that’s near non-existant in the first book anyway and everyone would just write it off as a Twilight copy.
    Jennifer Lawrence was really good and not too hollywooded up. Josh Hutcherson looks okay so far – they couldn’t have picked anyone that looked as similar to the Peeta in my mind.
    I reckon in the next trailer we will see more of training, Haymitch and the other tributes will be played up a bit more.

  • Shantelle

    I hope the next trailer you get to see the other tributes!!! I wanna see Thresh!
    Cato is frightening looking!!!! And the brief glimpse you get of Clove she looks like and arrogant brat… I cannot wait!!

    This is amazing!! It’s incredible how they brought the books back to life and this is just a trailer! I want to see more Peeta/Katniss interaction though in future previews and also Haymitch/Katniss ones. I think, just with this short thing, Lenny Kravitz convinced me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001426435099 Louelle van Rens

    What I like about it, is that they haven given every District their own design for the actual Hunger Games wear. In the last few seconds of the trailer this becomes evident, as you can see two persons with a gold design, another two with some kind of brown, and of course the black with orange detail that belongs to District 12. I have also seen a dark red colour and darker blue.

    I can’t believed I cried while watching a Trailer. I’m going to be a mess in the theater.

  • ella

    So as a huge fan of the books, I was not planning on watching this movie because I didn’t agree with some particular casting. Well the trailer was pretty good I actually ADORE Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. My one real problem is Josh Hutcherson. He is not believable for a second and not at all my Peeta. After watching this trailer I will definately NOT be watching this movie. I don’t know why all these film companies need to ruin good books with bad casting. Like really, they all pick already famous actors that don’t fit the roles. Look at how huge all the harry potter cast. They came from being nobodys to being some of the most famous kids in the world. Okay, rant over.

  • Cassiopeia

     Okay, after watching the trailer for the umpteenth time… DID ANYONE ELSE NOTICE THAT PRIM’S WEARING THE MOCKINGJAY PIN WHEN THEY GO TO THE REAPING??? Later in the trailer, when Katniss closes her hand around it, you can see that she’s with Prim. I don’t think Madge is in the movie. I’m pretty sure Katniss gets the pin from Prim. I’m interested to see how that will effect things.
