Finally: Watch The Official, Tingle-Inducing Hunger Games Trailer


Thank you for the early Christmas present, Good Morning America! The full Hunger Games trailer has aired this morning, and whether you’re a fan of the books or just figuring out what all the fuss is about, the clip delivers: It sets up the story of a futuristic dystopian world in which kids are sent to battle to the death. The good news? Director Gary Ross made some excellent choices, it seems. Bleak, washed-out cinematography gives a post-apocalyptic feel to the reaping ceremony. The lush, soft green forest of Katniss’s District is in stark contrast to the hard, sharp corners of The Capitol. Leonard Kravitz is a doting and supportive Cinna. The trailer pulls viewers in without giving too much away, and even though the casting of Jennifer Lawrence was not without controversy — in the books, Katniss is described as having straight black hair and olive skin — her acting is on point. The bad news: If there is anything amiss, it is whatever has been glued to Woody Harrelson’s head.
