May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor: The New Hunger Games Trailer
Anyway, the new trailer is here, and it works even better than the first one (which was pretty good in its own right). They're doing the smart thing with the trailers and marketing -- giving a glimpse of the characters and the world of The Hunger Games, a feel for some of the interpersonal conflict, and definitely a taste of some astonishing costume design -- but keeping the games themselves secret. It's definitely the right idea, and will hopefully draw in fans of the books as well as the neophytes.
Elizabeth Banks looks goddamn amazing, and I'm happy to see her continue her run on dramatic roles. Stanley Tucci looks terrific too, but then, he's Stanley Tucci -- that's his default setting. And I'm hoping -- praying -- that Lenny Kravitz kills it as Cinna, because he looks great himself. Jennifer Lawrence is capturing the feel of Katniss quite nicely, to round things out. So yeah, I'm excited.
