Coincidentally, we re-watched the original Hunger Games film just last night, because it was on Netflix and it’s just really hard not to. Also, who is this trailer “EXCLUSIVE” to? I can’t figure that out. I think it’s exclusive to YouTube. Just like everything. We’re all exclusive to YouTube. [ETA: It’s “exclusive” to the MTV Movie Awards. Except also, it’s completely inclusive to everybody who has the internet. So it’s kinda confusing, actually.] Anyhow, I wish we could fast-forward to the part of my life where I’m sitting in a 400-deep line of humans who advance-purchased opening night tickets for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!
So uh, what do you think?

I watched it on Netflix tonight too! This is destiny. Or fate. Or whatever.
or both, probs def both
I think it was exclusive to MTV because it aired during the movie awards.
It just needs to be in theaters NOW, I must see it!
The trailer convinces me that the movie will live up to my expectations.
I got chills watching the District 11 uprising, just like during the first movie!
I FEEL VERY VERY VERY EXCITED.
Trying to explain the meaning of the hunger salute to friends is going to be much easier now that it’s on Netflix.
Hrmahgerd, yes. Why is November so far away?
November is too long to wait!
November? Pffft… I’ll forget about it 3 times until then..
I want this film in my face right now.
I want this film in my box office.
I want Katniss Everdeen in my “box office”
I want Kaniss Everdeen’s box office in my face.
Just far enough to win.
i may have spontaneously *hunger salute*-ed when i saw this on the tv last night.
SO EXCITED! There were so many moments in this trailer that I just ended up staring slack-jawed at Jennifer Lawrence. What a babe.
^ my reaction too!
As our friend Whitney might say, ~Not gonna lie~, serious chills happening over here.
WHY IS IT SO FAR AWAYYYYYY
Why didn’t Katniss get whipped across the face like she was supposed to? It’s so much worse than a stupid punch.
The whistle at the end, oh my GOD I’M SO HYPE.
I can’t stop watching this trailer… Help. For real though, this movie looks amazing! I also hope for a In Your Box Office sequel.
Made an account to talk about this…IT looks good, and we shall all see what is to come ;)
OH YES. Oh so totally yes. Can we have archery lessons at ACamp, please?
true story, I’m making a bow next weekend so maybe I can just teach everyone at camp!
