'The Hunger Games' Gets An Official Trailer... I Soil My Pants

I have been yelling the praises of Suzanne Collin' 'Hunger Games' book series since the minute I turned the last page of the trilogy. While it is easy to assume it is a Young Adult crapfest in the vein of Twilight, people who read them will find themselves pleasantly surprised by the dense Sci-Fi/Adventure series the books actually are. After the success of all three books, plans for filming the trilogy started. Given the solid source material and possible potential for a franchise, Lionsgate decided to go all out. They put together a huge cast (Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrellson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Lenny Kravitz, Toby Jones, Thor's little brother, etc) for Gary Ross to direct... and now we finally have a trailer. Check it out in all it's wondrous glory after the jump.






Wow... I am shocked by how much of the book they were able to convey in such a short amount of time. I am already getting the feel for the world of Panem that I fell in love with in all three books, and Lawrence looks great as Katniss... one of the baddest female characters in the history of fiction. What do you guys think about the trailer? Tell us in the comment section below!!!

  2. Honestly, these books are great. So well written, and with such a Sci-Fi edge that was completely unexpected. really reminded me of The Running Man (the book, not the movie). let me know how you feel about the books Cal
