Catching Fire Teaser Trailer

Contains spoilers from book.

 

Yesterday, the long awaited first glimpse into the film adaptation of Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games Trilogy, was released.  It can be watched here

From this brief look, I really like what they’re doing with the film.  Like the trailer for the first film, it doesn’t actually show any footage of the actual Hunger Games itself, which definitely keeps fans excited to find out more.  I also think it’s really good that the trailer emphasises the aspect of Panem being a country on the brink of revolution and civil war.  This isn’t really surprising, considering the title Catching Fire itself is a metaphor for the beginning of the uprising, but considering the amount fandom obsesses over aspects like the Katniss/Gale/Peeta love

triangle, it’s welcome to see.  In some ways, it’s unusual that a story so political and bleak in nature, realistically dealing with the themes of tyranny, dictatorship and civil uprising (hence why I love it so much) has gained such universal popularity – but I’m very glad it has.

I highly look forward to further promotion for Catching Fire and, eventually, the film itself.
