When I heard they were releasing another Hunger Games trailer during Good Morning America today, I’ll admit that I was worried. The last one left me disappointed–it was too short, too narrow, too non-inclusive, just Katniss and then Gale’s voice. Jennifer Lawrence looked weird as Katniss, and I wasn’t sure about the quality or accuracy of the movie.
This erased all those doubts. I had never cried during a movie trailer before. Poignant, brilliant, detailed, chilling, exhilarating… Usually commercials don’t fit any of those, but this HG trailer was incredible.
I’d been skeptical of Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. Even though I love Kravitz for his music, I’d always pictured Cinna as a flamboyant, wimpy-looking white man. His whole feel in the trailer is different– I can picture him more as a mentor and inspiration to Katniss now, and I like this new Cinna a lot more.
Both Hemsworth and Hutcherson seem to have embraced their roles, and look their respective parts. Effie Trinket is older than I always imagined her, and I didn’t think of President Snow as having a beard, but those are minor things and only based on my opinions of the characters while reading the books.
District 12 looks great–the Seam is just how I imagined it. The Capitol’s awesome too, and the training center looks high-tech and flashy. The .004 seconds we saw of the Arena looked accurate, and I love the way they showed the tubes rising at the start of the Games. Altogether, I adore the giant scope of this trailer.
