With just over seven months until the next Hunger Games film, Catching Fire, the first official trailer has been revealed. I loved the first film, and indeed, the first book. The second book, Catching Fire – not so much. I’m pleased to see that the trailer for Catching Fire, to be released on November 22nd, revolves more around Katniss and Peeta’s Hunger Games victory tour than the next Hunger Games themselves. I always felt that the this part of the book was a little repetitive on the original novel, and it seems that perhaps the film will put more emphasis upon the rising insurgency with the Districts than with the 75th Quarter Quell. Of course, this will be part of the film, but I hope it doesn’t take centre stage.
The first trailer looks very good and captivating, so I hope they manage to grip the feeling of a rising rebellion within the film itself.
If you’re a fan of the Hunger Games, then you’ll be over the moon to see the first images of Catching Fire revealed. Though the film isn’t due for release until 22nd November, 2013, there’s going to be A LOT of media spotlight over the coming months as trailers and images are released from this much hyped up film.
Katniss is coming soon!
I have to say, I didn’t love Catching Fire. Whilst the Hunger Games threw me into a new world of adventures, I was slightly disappointed to see that the second book simply rehashed the same storyline, just with new characters. It had all the feelings of a filler book. Then, it was back to the intensity with Mockingjay, though there were disappointments here too. Especially that Katniss passed out at the end of the book, resulting in us being told what had happened, rather than her actively participating in proceedings. Despite this, the trilogy still gripped me throughout and I LOVED the first film, so I’m looking forward to see Katniss on the big screen again this year.
