The Hunger Games full-length trailer is awesome, puts all our fears to rest

Pin it

The full-length Hunger Games trailer is finally here, everyone, and for those of you worried that the movie would take the things you loved about the book, light them on fire, and then urinate on that fire: don't worry! Because this trailer, which gives us our first real look at the world the adaptation has created, has reassured at least this blogger that the people behind it know what they're doing. (One exception: Lenny Kravitz as the stylist, Cinna. Still have no idea what they were thinking with that.)

First of all, this:

is my spirit animal. She looks like the chick from Die Antwoord as Willy Wonka. She looks like my crazy aunt with better clothes. She looks like an evil meringue from a Playboy Bunny's third wedding, and I am so into it.

And this:

is my future husband. (What? He's nineteen, I'm in the clear. Well, from the authorities. Not from judgment.) So doe-eyed. So soulful. I can't wait until he (SPOILER ALERT) gets brainwashed into a rabid killing machine.

And, finally, this:

is my hero. Like everyone I had some doubts when it came to the casting of Jennifer Lawrence — not based on acting ability, mind you — but damn if she hasn't already sold me. Now all I want to see is the teen-on-teen violence, and I'll be happy.
