VIDEO: The First “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Teaser-Trailer Is Here (!!!!!!)

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?

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. Trying to explain the meaning of the hunger salute to friends is going to be much easier now that it’s on Netflix.

  4. SO EXCITED! There were so many moments in this trailer that I just ended up staring slack-jawed at Jennifer Lawrence. What a babe.

  5. Why didn’t Katniss get whipped across the face like she was supposed to? It’s so much worse than a stupid punch.

  6. 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.

  7. Made an account to talk about this…IT looks good, and we shall all see what is to come ;)
