The Hunger Games is a “Movie Event”

This trailer for The Hunger Games is short and sweet at a compact 31 seconds, but it packs a lot of heft. This feels like it captures the epic scale of the movie, thanks to the quick-cutting and the sense of motion. And, of course, Prim’s scream adds tension, especially when contrasted with big sister Katniss’ cool demeanor. Jennifer Lawrence looks absolutely stunning in the lead role!

I’m having trouble waiting another week for this film to open. What about you?
