The New Hunger Games Trailer Actually Looks Pretty Good

Katniss and Peeta’s victory is cut short as the Quarter Quell puts them back into the Hunger Games for the second time.

The Hunger Games was a bit of a disappointment for me, not because it was a bad movie but because it wasn’t a particularly good movie either. Whereas I was hoping for something like Battle Royale, instead I got a dumbed-down, shakey-camera’d teen whine-fest that felt far too emotionless when it was trying to be stoic. At least it had that Wes Bentley future-beard. Anyway, since the first one was bland, I haven’t been all that interested in its sequel, but I must admit that this latest trailer has piqued my interest after all. Even though it looks to retread a lot of the same ground as the first one, I get the sense that they’re going to pull a classic sequel trick here by doing the same thing as the first movie, but bigger and better. Maybe they’ll get it right this time?

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire comes out November 22, 2013.
