“The Hunger Games” trailer was unveiled this morning on “Good Morning America” and is now online for fans of Suzanne Collins’s young-adult novel series to view, re-view and dissect.
What will those fans see? A full, two-minute-plus preview for a movie that appears, at certain moments, to be tonally reminiscent of a Holocaust drama and, at other points, pure sci-fi. They will also see a trailer that features Jennifer Lawrence as an intense Katniss Everdeen, Elizabeth Banks looking like the Mad Hatter as Effie Trinket and Wes Bentley (Wes Bentley! With curly-cue facial hair!) as game administrator Seneca Crane.
It’s a pretty terrific clip, one that hews faithfully to the book and bodes well for the March release of this anticipated-to-the-point-of-ridiculousness movie. Watch it below, then post a comment to share your thoughts on the trailer.
