If I really like it, or if I'm already invested, naturally I go see the movie. But mostly I just want the movie trailers. I also like to read critic reviews, not for the critique, but to hear the story.
So now I'm going to analyze some movie trailers, some old and some newer, like the cool person I am.
And then of course...
Like The Hunger Games trailer, this one shows nothing of the main action, but it sets up everything quite nicely, and even has some legit foreshadowing for those who know about the actual plot of the books. I love how clearly this sets up the conflict Katniss faces in Catching Fire--between just living to survive in a fallen world, or potentially sacrificing yourself in order to bring about change. The Prim/Katniss interaction is the strongest part of this, and I love it. The intense emotion here is also very clear, and I love it. I LOVE IT LOVE IT. Also, there was more Peeta in this trailer than the last.
PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETA. THERE BETTER BE LOTS OF YOU THIS TIME.
Thanks for reading, and I'll see you next time for my thoughts on book awards!
