This upcoming Monday, the first full-length trailer for The Hunger Games will debut during the Good Morning America broadcast. May the odds be ever in your favor that you’ll get a glimpse of what you’re dying to see, because, let’s face it, there’s plenty.
Since this summer’s teaser trailer (all one second of it) left much to the imagination, there’s a veritable check list of things fans can hope to see come Monday morning. Will the Hunger Games trailer follow in the footsteps of the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s first (official) intoxicating trailer and go with quick snippets? I’m envisioning Katniss running while we get fast-paced glimpses at the selection, the ceremonies, or the harrowing, pulse-pounding action of the Games themselves. Now imagine them all set to Rue’s lullaby or “The Hanging Tree”? (Insert goosebumps here.)
Or can we expect something more like Tattoo’s second trailer, which gave viewers a more in-depth look at the characters and places? Perhaps we’ll hear some dialogue (Katniss’ interactions with Peeta or Rue in the Games would feel especially effective, as would Katniss sacrificing herself to take Prim’s spot in the Games) or see some memorable settings (the Cornucopia, the Hub, the Districts). My fingers are crossed that we’ll also be privy to some drama (see: that little romantic triangle between Katniss, Peeta, and Gale) and some unbearably intense moments (the training sessions, the first run for the weapons, the interactions with Muttations).
With so much to look forward to in The Hunger Games, what are you most anxious to see in the trailer? Do you hope it’s all build up or do you want them to show as much action as possible? Share in the comments section below.
