In two days, we will have a new trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire presented during a panel with the stars at Comic-Con! After going so long with only intermittent Catching Fire news, these last couple weeks are almost enough to make us SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUST! …Though, if we predict the combustion, how spontaneous is it, really?
We’ve already got a couple great new stills to get our blood flowing, but the trailer will be the real deal, but there are still some things we haven’t seen yet that could make this trailer beyond awesome! Therefore, we present…
THE COMIC CON CATCHING FIRE TRAILER AS EDITED BY VICTOR’S VILLAGE
Katniss vs. President Snow – Though we’re struck with the fear that the Snow and Plutarch scenes from the first trailer will replace the Katniss / Snow showdown that kicks off the Catching Fire books, we’re still hoping to see a scene of confrontation where we learn that this isn’t just politics. It’s personal!
Wedding Fever and Horror – It would take about 10 seconds of trailer time to juxtaposed The Capitol’s wedding fever with the reality of what’s being pushed upon Katniss and Peeta. And it would be a helluva emotional 10 seconds. Wedding mentions without both side of the coin just will not cut it on our book.
Danger in the Arena – That’s right. None of this “Save the arena for later” business! Lionsgate had already “announced” The Quarter Quell. ARENA SCENES FOR ALL! They can be quick little flashes, but we better see the ocean pedestals or crazed monkeys or nerve gas fog or arrows getting shot at force fields. We know the danger of the arena, now we need to feel it!
Introduction of the other Victors, particularly Finnick and Johanna – We’ve seen pictures of the other Victors, now how bout some footage? Let’s see the movie’s take on what Finnick and Johanna are all about! As much as the audience loves Katniss and Peeta, we’re going to need more characters to root for. This will be the perfect chance to make us do just that!
Peeta – APPEASE THE FANGIRLS so that they calm down already! Most of us realize that Peeta will be a major part of at least half the movie whether we see that in the trailer or not, but some of us need a little reassurance. Give it to em! Close-up shots of Josh Hutcherson’s jawline preferable, but not required.
Gale’s New Scene – Anything new that’s specifically added in for character development is always intriguing to us. We want a glimpse of new goodness to come! Then maybe the fans can see and hopefully appreciate why they added it in.
What about you, fellow Tributes? Want do you want… Nay! NEED to see in the new trailer?
