Hunger Games Fan-Made Trailer: WOW.

This makes me so, so excited for a Hunger Games movie.

SPOILER ALERT - my post below AND the video are spoilers if you haven't read the book (the first book).

It's the scene where Rue dies. And it made me want to cry all over again (like I felt when I read the book).

Evidently it was made as some sort of audition? Despite a technical flaw - Rue is dark-skinned in the book, not fair-haired and skinned - it's pretty impressive. (Also, I was a bit confused until I saw the end credits b/c I didn't realize it's Glimmer making the kill at the beginning.) I will say that it's harder watching the violence and seeing the age of the kids - it's easier to get over that somehow in the book for me, I think? Because I can't see their age? It was also weird seeing them in normal clothes running around, like a zip-up hoodie - for some reason the normalcy of it was shocking for me in the bloodbath.

But, YAY! Exciting to see this book move to the big screen!

3 enjoyed the bouquet.:

I've seen this video before, it's been circulating through the book blogs. It's very impressive! I agree with Erin though - it was a bit weird to see them running around in "normal" clothes. I guess I expected something more basic?

I definately wanted more. Well you can tell it was fan made. Katniss and her outfil were dirty, but her backpack flawless even though she covered it in mud in the book etc. All in all pretty good. I think either actress would need more coaching and directing, but are better than the twilight actors by far. I could handle this! Oh and I love the squirting blood when the arrow hit is neck. So fake. I laughed!
