I ain’t gonna lie — I’m looking forward to this one. So much so that I don’t even mind all the PR attempts to convince you that not seeing “The Hunger Games” when it opens on March 23rd is the same as telling people you’re a secret Al-Qaeda terrorist sleeper agent. Here’s the latest TV spot for the Gary Ross film. A flash or two of new footage here, I think, including a look at the room where the Gamemakers do their thing. That, I think, will be one of the movie’s main draw — whereas you didn’t see anything beyond what Katniss sees in the books (which is very limited), the movies will let you see how the Games are actually run. Should be interesting.
The event of the year stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Lenny Kravitz, Wes Bentley, Toby Jones, Amandla Stenberg, Alexander Ludwig, Isabelle Fuhrman, Jacqueline Emerson, Paula Malcomson, Dayo Okeniyi, Jack Quaid, Leven Rambin, and Willow Shields.
And just to make sure all the young folks see this thing on opening day, Lionsgate has already announced that they’re attaching the first teaser trailer for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” in front of the movie. Yes, those movies are still not over yet, my friends. But they will be soon, soon…
