Lionsgate premiered the long trailer for The Hunger Games this morning. It’s got everything you’d expect. Attractive but terrified teens, the makings of a love triangle, and outlandish facial hair. Seriously, Wes Bentley. What are you thinking? Facial hair like that would even get you beat up in Williamsburg.
It does look like an impressive effort. We aren’t shown any kid-on-kid violence in this preview, but we are privy to the training sessions where children are taught the right way to decapitate mannequins. It’s all about your follow-through.
