If it's crap ... We'll tell you
With all the giant movies hitting theaters this summer, it's easy to forget that we're also getting the second film in 'The Hunger Games' franchise in November. Francis Lawrence's 'Catching Fire' will bring back 74th annual games winners Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) for a gathering of past champions known as The Quarter Quell. Today, the first trailer for 'Catching Fire' has arrived online. I really enjoy how the trailer focuses on the sociopolitical stuff going on in the story as opposed to the Quell. I'm far more interested in the broader ramifications of these spectacles than the spectacles themselves. The one thing I do find strange about this trailer is that it's being promoted as a teaser. Uh, guys, when a trailer runs for nearly two-and-a-half minutes, it's not a teaser. Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think.
