Hunger Games Posters and Trailer

Posted on the 21 November 2011 by Kittyfairy @KittyFairy
For anyone who might have missed it (if you're a fan, you probably haven't!) but over the past few weeks we have been very spoilt with posters and a much anticipated trailer for the upcoming Hunger Games film, which I thought I would treat you wish :)
The best thing about both the poster campaign and the trailer is that this is the first real look that we've been given as to what exactly the characters are going to look like, and I don't know about anyone else, but I think this is the aspect that I was most looking forward to.
The Main Cast:

Not much is given away about outfits from these pictures, but I love the fact that Katniss is the only character facing right in these posters. It highlights that she's the main character, and the main pivot of the whole story.
The Supporting Cast:
Hunger Games Posters and Trailer I'm getting a little bit tired of "fans" complaining about the fact that Lenny Kravitz is black, and apparently Cinna is "white". To be completely honest, I don't think I ever really came to a conclusion as to what Cinna's ethnicity was, and Chris (who is currently working his way through Catching Fire) shares that thought.
Personally, I think Kravitz is a brilliant casting and looks fantastic in character. I definitely have high hopes for a role that was always going to be a tough one to fill!!

I was mildly intrigued, that's for sure. In costume, Effie has a very "whoa" factor about her, and I can't help feeling that the costume and make up ages the actress a great deal. I know that Effie is meant to be a very eccentric Capitol-made woman, but I'm not a fan of the get up personally.

The Tributes:

Hunger Games Posters and TrailerWhat tortures me the most about the castings of the tributes (which is nothing against the actors or even the casting) is how young and vulnerable most of them look. The idea of them "fighting to the death" is just crazy-talk.
The Trailer:
This trailer was definitely a huge improvement of the terrible teaser trailer which had left me questioning whether the film would be worth the wait or not. And yes, I am now officially excited.
Of course there were still a few lines that were hammy, and some scenes felt rushed, but I'm just going to have to hope that that was just the end result of bad editing (please?)
I'm not too sure what I think of the green outfits of Katniss and everyone in her district, but I'm not a fan of how she looks at this stage.
Overall, is it March yet???
