Our Reaction to the New Hunger Games: Catching Fire Trailer

The new Catching Fire trailer released a few days ago, and since we're behind on Books into Movies, we decided to do a little reaction post to the trailer! Disclaimer: It's been eons since I've read Catching Fire so I've forgotten lots. If it sounds like I've never even read the book, that's why.

1. Victor's Village looks like a creepy mother F'n place. I would not want to go there! No thanks. 

2. Peeta! I spot Peeta! Ten points for me. 
You saved us. I know that. But I can't go on acting for the cameras and just ignoring each other in real life. 
3. This quote from Peeta explains my general feelings towards Katniss in the second book. She aggravates me.

4. This looks a lot darker and more political at this point than I remember from the books...for me shit didn't start going down until the very very end of the second book. 

5. Who let the stormtroopers in? 

6. Katniss and Gale KISSSSSSSSS! *thumbs down* I'm Team Peeta (even though JLaw looks better with Liam Hemsworth than Josh Hutcherson) 

7. Finally footage with the actual games!!!

8. Ahhhhhhhh! Caesar is scary as always. *shivers*

9. The costume department will be getting some Academy Awards this year. Just sayin'. 

10. *faints* *slowly recovers* Oh...that was just Finnick.

11. Wait! Does someone really have mutated shark teeth in the games? Creeeepy. 

12. Katniss now becomes...THE BLACK SWAN. 

13. I still don't like the clothes-fire-graphics. 
Remember who the real enemy is.
14. jcjbdcyhgyhbwjsnkndjksn. Yes.  

15. November 22nd. You suck. Get here sooner. 

That's it! Let us know your thoughts on the trailer in the comments! Have you seen it? And can I just say I'm pleasantly surprised and pleased at the casting choice for Finnick! Yay for Sam Claflin :) 


  1. Oh, I love this list. You pretty much hit every thought I had. :)

  2. lol I liked victor's village :p I hated it when the 'victor's' were chosen as tributes .That is a mother F'n nightmare ! Unfair but I loved Catching Fire

  3. Oh my gosh, love this post! The stormtrooper gif made me laugh so hard. The trailer made me so excited for the movie though. Gave me chills!

  4. Yes to all of this. Although I love Hutcherson and can't stand Hemsworth so even if he wasn't playing Gale I'd boo every time I see him. I'm so excited for this movie though.

  5. The trailer for Catching Fire. I can't even- The exact thing about Victor's Village ran through my mind. It looks like the kind of place you'd see in a HORROR show, not a dystopian city! LOL, that GIF. I never knew the Stormtrooper outfits were so... flexible. I'm actually Team Gale, so I was a bit frustrated with Mockingjay, as you can imagine. And is it just me, or does Sam Clafin look weird as Finnick (and shirtless, too)?

    So far, my favorite quote HAD to be: "What can you see?" "Hope." EPIC. I hope we'll get to see more of Prim in this one. <3

  6. I can't wait either. My favorite parts were A)Finnick (I definitely had some swoon action) and B)New high tech training activities. While they weren't in the bok...they seem pretty badass.

  7. Funny. I had about the same reaction.

  8. This book was my favorite in the trilogy and the trailer makes it look awesome! Hurry up November!
