May the Odds be Ever in Your Favor: the Hunger Games Trailer

Posted By: Julia Sallo

This morning, Apple released the first trailer for the Hunger Games--based on the bestselling book series by Suzanne Collins--which will hit theaters on March 23, 2012. Social media is a-buzz with talk of what appears to be not only an accurate representation of Collins' brilliantly concocted trilogy, but also a thrilling film for those who haven't already fallen in love with Katniss and the rest of the gang in print.

The concept of the Hunger Games is a futuristic, dystopian North America where a dictatorship controls its colonies by subjecting teenagers from each colony to an annual fight to the death. The film's trailer teases the main characters, and reveals the lead-up to the "Hunger Game" that the first book centers on. But beyond the plot, the film appears to be an emotional ride, introducing the strong-willed, starving and defensive teenagers who will become gladiators for the pleasure of the capital.

For fans of the books, the film's trailer suggests a fair representation of the plot and characters (and could even incite a few tears). For Hunger Games newbies, the trailer hints at a thrilling film worthy of a trip to the movie theater. And with a four-month wait for the film, the Hunger Games books could easily move back up the best-selling list, and fly off bookstore shelves.

Looks like a serious, boring version of Battle Royale
