Trailer Tuesday: Hungry For More?

So far, Snow good. Or not so good.

This week’s Tuesday trailer (more of a tease, to be fair) is dedicated to the adaptation of the third book in Suzanne Collins’s bestselling trilogy of books, which will be the third of four films that Jennifer Lawrence is no doubt very glad she signed up for.

In the ingenious ‘Mockingjay’ promo clip below, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) addresses the Districts of Panem from his Capitol throne. But what’s this? Katniss’s sorta-honey Peeta, last seen before she ripped The Hunger Games a new one and woke up on a hovercraft Peeta-less, is at the dastardly dictator’s side. Has he gone rogue? Was he always the bad boy when she thought he was the good guy? Has anyone in the world actually not read the books to not know the answers?

Whether you’re a newcomer to the Games or a hardened survivalist, this playful approach to the trailer is enough to suggest that we’ll all be pleased with the third entry in one of the best big-screen blockbusters of the century so far. #OnePanem indeed.

Trailer Tuesday: Maze Game

Already worn out your ‘Catching Fire’ DVD since its release last week? If you can’t get enough of Katniss, you might hunger for some more brutal fun and games – and so new flick ‘The Maze Runner’ might be up your street (or make that your maze).

Based on a sci-fi YA novel and featuring a so-hot-right-now young cast, it’s got all the ingredients – including an upward ascent into dystopian hell reminiscent of the Tributes’ entrance into the Arena – to be either a cut-copy waste of time or the next best thing in tense and traumatic teen entertainment.

The Hunger What?

Ooh, shiny new trailer for ‘Divergent’, the latest YA adaptation to cast an awards-baiting young actress (Shailene Woodley in the role of Jennifer Lawrence) in a dystopian alternative future.

It may be a bit too early to tell if the odds are ever in this one’s favour, but it looks like it could be a perfectly decent watch. Plus, it’s got her from ‘Titanic’ in it.
