More Hunger Games News

Posted: November 18, 2011 in Uncategorized

So, the full-length Hunger Games trailer has been released, and the internet is abuzz with excitement.  Today your friendly library bloggers report on What People Have Been Saying About The Movie Of The Hunger Games. 

Firstly, for those of you who have been hiding under a rock for the past week or two, here is the trailer in full:

HELL YES.  We are very excited about this movie.  But what do others think?

There has been no shortage of commentary on Twitter, where folks don’t quite seem to have been able to agree on a hashtag: check out both #hungergames and #thehungergames for lots of people going ‘squeee’ and a few people going ‘meh, whatever’.

Our favourite YA blog, Forever Young Adult, has been good enough to provide us with a highly scientific analysis of the Hunger Games trailer.  Although typically caustic, they seem a bit more enthused about the trailer than they were about the pre-trailer trailer.  (And fair enough too, who releases a trailer advertising a trailer advertising a film?  Surely this is a sign that something in our society has Gone Horribly Wrong.)

Over at My Hunger Games, there is a pretty comprehensive round-up of reactions to the trailer: good, bad and indifferent.

And finally, E!Online has a fairly gushy but kind of amusing take on the trailer right here

Oh!  And before we go, you might want to check out the Hunger Games Examiner tumblr which has lots of fun stuff for the more obsessive fan including an in-depth feature on how to achieve Effie’s nail polish effect and a printable cut-out of Seneca Crane’s beard.  (The beard also has its own Facebook page.  Yes really.)

So, there you have it, blog fans.  To summarize, we are pretty goshdarn excited about this movie and will probably keep posting increasingly esoteric and ridiculous stuff about it until it finally comes out next year.
