The second Hunger Games film, Catching Fire, isn’t hitting theatres until November… but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about it now! After all, this weekend at Comic-Con, a new trailer will be released and no doubt the internet will go insane once someone uploads a shitty iPhone video of it to YouTube. If you can’t wait for all that excitement, though, you’re in luck! The new series of character posters have been released, and they’re awesome!
I loved The Hunger Games book trilogy, and while I thought the movie was only good rather than great (as most big screen adaptations of books tend to be, unfortunately), I’m pretty pumped for the second installment, Catching Fire, that’s due to hit theatres in November. Plus, the visual effects, costumes and make-up are fantastic, which makes the artwork/promotional posters a lot of fun to look at. Check out the new shot of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen above, and then scroll through some others below.
OK, now. For real. Even if you can’t stand Sarah Palin (or, for that matter, the entire McCain camp), you have to admit: this looks like it’s going to be one good-assed movie. Ed Harris as John McCain? Hell. I see what Courtney Stodden saw now. Just in Ed Harris, and not John McCain, because that’s just gross, and anyway, I think Courtney Stodden just wants to be Cindy McCain. Heaven knows she’s on her way to looking just like her, right?
Anyway, yes, Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin? Meh. I would have preferred Tina Fey, naturally, but Julianne Moore’s good and solid. And Woody Harrelson? Hell. Anything with Woody Harrelson will be a four-star flick. I mean, have you even seen 2012? Case and point, friends.
Who else thinks this movie’s got an OK chance to totally kill it?
