New Hunger Games clip is on-target

My love for this new clip from the forthcoming adaptation of The Hunger Games is inversely proportional to its length. It’s tiny, but my esteem is huge. In this scene, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is supposed to be demonstrating her special skill to the Gamemakers who run the barbaric Hunger Games — and she doesn’t think she’s getting the respect she deserves. The guy with the weird beard is Head Gamemaker Seneca Crane, played by Wes Bentley (American Beauty).

The thing I love most about this clip is that it perfectly captures Katniss’ reckless nature, but that it comes straight out of the book. Well, certainly not Seneca’s lines, but the scene itself is accurate, making me hope we’re getting a faithful adaptation. Also? The music really works, too…
