Every revolution begins with a spark, and every blockbuster opens with a teaser trailer! The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiered during Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards, and it definitely has us wanting more. At the same time, the trailer skimps on some major movie details -- like the actual Hunger Games, for example. Watch it below!
Let's start with the good stuff. Here are 3 things we're psyched to see in the Catching Fire trailer:
1. Katniss facing down a bullet - We love it when Jennifer Lawrence gets tough, and she really shows off her strength in this trailer -- including a scene where she fearlessly gets between Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and a gun.
2. Capitol fashion - Nice to see Elizabeth Banks (as Effie Trinket) back in her crazy future-runway looks. Even better, we get a glimpse of Katniss in a mockingjay-inspired gown. (Note the feathered wings on her shoulders.)
3. Things heat up with Gale. -We saw a lot of Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) in the first Hunger Games film, and less of Gale, his rival for Katniss' affections. Judging from that smooch in the trailer, the love triangle is about to get far more intense.
And here are 3 unanswered questions that we hope they tackle in the next trailer:
1. Where's Finnick? - After all the buzz about new actor Sam Claflin, we don't even get a single profile shot?
2. What will the Quarter Quell look like? - The next round of the Hunger Games will pit previous victors against one another in a water-filled arena. According to Hutcherson, the movie will open up into a full IMAX screen as soon as the games begin. We've seen these set photos from Hawaii, but we're still waiting patiently for our official first look.
3. Don't wedding scenes usually make the previews? Without giving too much away, there's a doozy of an "I do" in Catching Fire. Couldn't we at least see the dress?
Catching Fire opens on Nov. 22 -- meaning there are many previews left to come!
