The Hunger Games
Many times in the past year we've heard about The CW attempting to capitol-ize (heh) on the teen success of blockbuster franchise 'The Hunger Games,' first developing multiple iterations of the futuristic competition drama 'The Selection,' and this coming summer with reality competition series 'Capture' (which was originally named 'The Hunt'). The first official trailer for 'Capture' has hit the net, but are the odds ever in its favor?
The new 'Catching Fire' poster finally gives us what we've all been craving, which is what the first trailer failed to deliver -- any look whatsoever at Ms. Everdeen back in action with her signature bow and arrows! While it doesn't offer up the more specific images we've been waiting for, we know Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss will conquer the arena just as she did the first 'Hunger Games'!
The first 'Catching Fire' trailer has finally hit during the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, following a slew of Capitol Couture character posters and one "teaser-for-a-teaser trailer" that didn't reveal very much of anything (other than that Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss is still PO-ed for having almost died in 'The Hunger Games'). With no more lame flaming Mockingjay symbols, check out the first actual footage from the new sequel.
'The Hunger Games' proved adept at keeping audiences excited by offering brief glimpses at the movie, and letting everyone know about every casting decision, so it's no surprise that the follow-up 'Catching Fire' is using a similar strategy. We're still more than seven months out from 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,' but it's just released two new images.
'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' gave us a slew of "Capitol Couture"-inspired movie posters to hold us over until the November premiere, but how would you like to see the first footage from the film? The MTV Movie Awards will air the first full trailer April 14, but the teaser for that trailer has just hit.
Boy, when the folks at The CW set their minds on something.
Late last year we brought you the news that The CW had approved production on 'The Hunger Games'-esque summer reality competition series 'The Hunt,' while months before the network had developed a scripted pilot similarly derivative of the blockbuster film franchise. Now, even after 'The Selection' failed to meet CW standards the first time around, the network has given the green light to another pilot episode. Find out all about 'The Selection' inside!
