There are a few times in my life when I wanted to use a time machine so I could jump into a particular period in the past or in the future to see or do something. But I can't remember—in all the years of my bookworm-infested and fangirlism-dominated life—how badly I felt the
want need to use one for real, except after watching the official full trailer of The Hunger Games. I wanted to twist the machine's dial to March 23, 2012 and be transported into a moviehouse, all comfy with warm buttered popcorn and Kleenex on my lap (I'll need it) while my favorite dystopian book comes to life onscreen. Ooh, if only such a thing really exists! I’m all tears and goosebumps after my first play of the video...and also on the second, on the third, on the fourth...
Haha! Without further ado, here’s the trailer.
I commend the creators for doing such a good job in interpreting some of my favorite scenes perfectly. In fairness, they didn’t show much of the actual Games—they only included scenes from the first half of the book, making the fans hungry (no pun intended!) for more. The scenes may not fit exactly with the images I had in my head when I was reading the book, but they succeeded in rendering my limbs prickly with gooseflesh and my mouth dry. It’s amazing! I’ll probably create another ‘spazz’ post with all the details I loved about this video, but right now my system is pleading for me to catch some zzz’s. My day’s been pretty tiring, it's my first day of work.
Oops, digressing. Haha! May the odds be ever in your favor!
