The Hunger Games Official Teaser-Trailer: A Threefold Treat

I'm not certain if this video would still be up by morning (there's a lot of banned/removed vids due to copyright blahs regarding this) but I'm going to blabber anyway. In this one-minute, six-second teaser-trailer of The Hunger Games as shown in this year's VMA, the viewers were given three treats:
  1. The badass-ness of Jennifer Lawrence as she played Katniss Everdeen spot-on, dashing across the arena and hopping over flaming logs.
  2. Gale Hawthorne's voice in Katniss' head, saying something along the lines of "Listen to me: You’re stronger than they are. You are. They just want a good show. That’s all they want. You know how to hunt. Show them how good you are.”
  3. A four-note tune at the end of the video, which may or may not be a part of Rue's salute song....
There's the tiny rant of it being so short, but that's why it's called a "teaser." But if you come to think of it, it has actually given the audience a lot! Peeta fans may not be happy with this trailer, but I guess that's just expected...I even think the creators did it on purpose, the boy with the bread being absent from it. :) Great job at "teasing," guys.

Needless to say, we're all waiting for the official trailer, and of course, the movie. Here's to hoping it would do justice to Suzanne Collins' trilogy!
