The First Full Length Hunger Games: Catching Fire Trailer Has No Quippy Lines I Can Reappropriate For This Headline

Here’s the first full-length trailer for Catching Fire, released at Comic Con (see this post for adorable Jennifer Lawrence-ness at the Con). I’m sure that those of you who have only seen Hunger Game and not read the books are quite excited for the sequel, though those who have read the book already know it’s something of a rerun. Suzanne Collins took something like seven years to write the original book, and after it was a huge success, her publisher gave her 26 minutes and 13 seconds to write the sequel, so she basically just copied and pasted from the first book and added a new ending.

I EXAGGERATE. Perhaps director Francis Lawrence will go in a different direction, though the trailer does not suggest as much.
