The Harry Potter movie series wrapped up this summer, and now that Breaking Dawn Part 1 is out, there’s just one installment left in the Twilight Saga film franchise. What’s a fantasy fan to do? I’ll tell ya: just hold tight until March 23, when the first Hunger Games adaptation will hit the big screen. We now have a full-length trailer to feast our eyes upon, and I’m thrilled to say that as a huge HG trilogy maniac, it exceeded my wildest (and ridiculously high) expectations.
Judging from this preview, the odds are ever in our favor that The Hunger Games is going to be fantastic. (Feel free to groan.) But seriously, I got chills AND my eyes welled up… and that was all without even seeing any scenes from my favorite part of the book—the arena action! I just couldn’t be happier about this trailer.
What say the rest of you Hunger Games devotees? And how about those who’ve yet to read Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novels about a future where pre-teens and teens are forced to fight each other to the death in front of a live audience—did this trailer make you want to hurry up and read the books before March?
