The Hunger Games Official Trailer Released!

As of early this morning (on Good Morning America) and now on iTunes movie trailers, the first full trailer for The Hunger Games has finally been released. This is extremely exciting news for all the fans (like me!) left wanting after the extremely short and unrevealing teaser from the VMAs.

Enjoy!

The really cool news is that it looks like Gary Ross is striving to follow the book as much as possible. We get a glimpse of the Gale and Katniss hunting, the reaping, and then Katniss and Peeta’s journey to and training at the Capitol. I also think it has an interesting soundtrack that didn’t pick a Muse or Radiohead or popular song for the background. I’m beginning to think Jennifer Lawrence might even be able to be believable as a teenager with the makeup (lack of) on her character. From the trailer, it looks like Lenny Kravitz is going to make an awesome Cinna, and Elizabeth Banks looks like an eery, spot-on casting for Effie Trinket. I’m hoping they give the Haymitch character (played by Woody Harrelson) the screen time he deserves. He plays such an important part, and we got only a very small snippet of him on screen. It looks like President Snow and Seneca Crane are going to have their characters explored more on screen than they were in the book.

I hope the wait isn’t too bad. Because the wait for the second film in the series is going to be even longer–not coming out until November of 2013!?!
