    [Trailer] The Hunger Games

    The Hunger Games - Movie Trailers - iTunes

    Doesn't look too bad, but will it manage to do well enough at the box office to warrant adapting the next two books?

    The first book sets up the other two. It even ends in, not so much a cliffhanger as a "I wonder what happens next?" So yeah, I'm sure it's being developed as a trilogy of movies.

    The edginess over other YA book adaptions like Harry Potter and Twilight will help. And the theme of the books will hit home for a lot of people these days, too.

    Why do you say that? The book is a lot better and has more material to draw from, more depth of characters and themes. It also I think is a lot more popular so it should do well.

    Marketting of the trailer, looks like 1984 theme future and limited action, action shows up 20 seconds before end of trailer, focusing on the stars...this hints at love story. Then what you take away from the trailer, sucky world, lottery to pick 12 to 18 year olds to face off in death games. Rating is going to be PG13, no big named stars. Also March release date.

    As far as the books go; are the fans as fanantic as Twight & Harry Potter?

    Never read the books, but the trailer made me think: ooh, Winter's Bone meets The Running Man (with a little Demolition Man thrown in).

    Piqued my interest.

    I don't see why any of this makes it bad.

    What I got out of the trailer was that the movie focuses on the story and the relationships between the characters and the hopelessness of their situation more than the action, and even then the action seemed pretty well done.

    I'm curious to know whether or not the protagonist actually ends up killing any of her friends. If it ends up that she turns the tables on their captors and leads a revolution to overthrow them, well, then it'll be just another boring action movie. But if she's actually forced to kill her friends to survive, suddenly it becomes all sorts of interesting.

    I've only read the first one so far...pretty good book. In the trailer, the people of the district look waaaaay too cleaned up. And, they did a great job of making her look plain.

    Not a great trailer, and they even make the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence look plain.

    @Iku Rex - the youtube link is broken.
