The Hunger Games (official trailer)

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.

The Hunger Games full trailer (November 14, 2011)

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! 


  1. Super love the trailer! waaah!

  2. The trailer was SO good! I never thought the movie would look that good! And I've never been so excited seeing a trailer, I think. It's amazing and March can't come soon enough.

  3. Same here! Got goosebumps and a tear in my eye! That part where Prim's name was picked, and Katniss volunteered - that scene sent me crying, and it continued. Goodness, this trailer was sooo good. I mean, Effie, Haymitch, Cinna, Distric 12, and even the Capitol (though just a glimpse) - were perfect! I'm sooo excited for the movie. I'm definitely posting this to my blog, right now! :)

    Thanks for keeping me informed, I almost forgot about this trailer. Love your blog.


  4. @Johanna- you can say that again! I've watched the trailer so many times and it never ceases to make my hair stand on end because of excitement! Marc 23, please come soon!

  5. @Riza- hi there, Riza! I know exactly what you're feeling. Goodness, this trailer just raised the bar of my expectations for this upcoming movie! I hope they will really do the book justice. :) It'll break me to see my favorite series adapted into a mediocre film.

    Sure, no big deal! Let's all spread the HG love!
    (thank you, too!)
