Hunger Games: Catching Fire Teaser Trailer Preview

Posted April 3, 2013 04:04 PM by Webmaster

Lionsgate FilmsThe first official trailer for Francis Lawrence's highly anticipated new film Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) will premiere on Sunday, April 14 at 9/8c during the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. A short preview for it was released today.

The film is set to open in theaters across the United States on November 22.

Official synopsis: Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire is produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.

I like my dystopian future movies to star adults, not tweens. But I am sure all the fans are excited for this. Hopefully they don't screw up Mad Max: Fury Road, now that's a dystopian future I can sink my teeth into.

I'm glad to see that the cinematography is similar to the one used by Gary Ross in The Hunger Games. I think this is a sign that Francis Lawrence is truly going to respect the visual aesthetic of the first one, while giving Catching Fire his own twist. Maybe he will be to The Hunger Games like what Alfonso Cuaron & David Yates were to Harry Potter.

Although hopefully Lawrence keeps the close-up shaky cam to a minimum.

Jennifer Lawrence is a "tween"? Huh?

@bboisvert, technically she was 20/21 when she was filming Hunger Games, but I wasn't referring to just her. Liam Hemsworth was also born in 1990, Josh Hutcherson was only 18 while filming. Im not saying there is anything wrong with that, but if I wanna watch a movie starring kids, I'll watch The Goonies. I dont care much for teenagers in movies, they don't make for very good actors.

It's crazy how they have trailers of trailers now. Talk about a bloated industry...

Why is this posted under blu-ray? This is a theatrical release, and I don't care about these (I've filtered the settings to only see blu-ray-related news).

@ MoulinBlu, you're right. And its getting ridiculous.

When I look back at some of the great teasers of the past, they actually hooked you in to seeing the film. Two such examples is The Shining, and Eyes Wide Shut. Nothing is revealed about the plot, and the mystery may itself hook you in.

I'm not a major fan of The Hunger Games, but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the first film, will certainly see this come November.

I can't wait to see the movie. Loved the first film and all three books. Looks interesting.

To alien2010: Yeah, trailers have been a tad too revealing as of late. A college professor once showed the trailers of the 1978 and 2007 Halloween films and the 78 trailer was much more creepier. Slower paced too. The quick cuts and flashes of 2007's trailer... let's just say the 78 trailer made want to see its film more than 07. I'm not an advertising executive, so who know what sells movies better. Just my humble opinion.

However, this may not have been the best page to bring it up on: If Catching Fire the film has any major surprises, fans are gonna be ticked. (I kid, alien makes a good point )

Jennifer played a tween and acted like one so I can see Graham's point. However like alien2010 I too found the Hunger Games a good way to waste a few hours. It was well written, well acted and presented a complete and believable vision of one possible future. A lot of that had to do with set and costume design which formed a unified whole. Whether or not this vision can be sustained and remain viable for a trilogy is another matter. The issue is always continuity while doing something in each film that keeps the film "fresh". Jackson pulled it off with LOTR. He may do it again the The Hobbit. Most other directors falter, take the "safe" road and just keep repeating the same thing until it becomes boring. The Hunger Games has a good premise. Can it be sustained through three movies? That's the big question.

Sidebar prediction: J.J. Abrams won't be as successful with his second Star Trek and Paramount will finally bring this franchise to an end.
