The Hunger Games Catching Fire Trailer Curiously Suggests A Good Film

Now, I didn’t dislike The Hunger Games… not really. Considering the genre, I was pleasantly surprised, even if I’d have liked the film to explore its own themes more fully.

We all know how trailers can be, but I wonder if Catching Fire isn’t going to be something much closer to the movie I was after. The first movie did a lot of things right, and had a lot of talent involved, but this trailer has me intrigued to a degree I didn’t expect. Could it be that this film will actually lay things on the line, and actually deliver the meat necessary to really sink your teeth into the dystopic struggle?

Take a look below, and let me know what you think.
