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.

The Astronaut Wives Club has too much going on to rocket out of the gates, but it has the potential to easily rate a 9 or 10 after six episodes. The complexities are legion, and there are more characters than you know what to do with. If it settles down into the spin on pseudo-drama it suggests, it could be a winner.
