Final “Catching Fire” trailer released… (cue fangirling)

Alright fellow Tributes… the final Catching Fire trailer debuted last night during Game 4 of the World Series. Even though it’s only a minute long, there’s plenty to be amped about.

We’re getting our first glimpse of the Quarter Quell arena–an unprecedented (and exciting) marketing decision considering The Hunger Games trailers didn’t show the arena until after the movie hit theaters.

You can check out the trailer for yourself below, but here are some of the things I noticed:

  • 0:46 – The 10 o’clock to 11 o’clock sector, the salt water wave that washes out the entire sector to the beach. And that cornucopia is pretty dope.
  • 0:47 – I think it’s safe to assume that that is Finnick running with Mags on his back through the woods.
  • 0:48 – The locket (but not the pearl?)
  • 0:52 – The 2 o’clock to 3 o’clock sector, the paralyzing fog.
  • 0:53 – The 3 o’clock to 4 o’clock sector, MONKEY MUTTS!
  • 0:55 – The 4 o’clock to 5 o’clock sector, JABBERJAYS!
  • 0:58 – The Jabberjay attack–Peeta is definitely yelling at Katniss “It’s not real!”

Chills. I have chills. November 22nd cannot come fast enough.

I also wanted to note that I don’t have the sector times and traps committed to memory. I found an awesome fan-made map/visual guide of the arena. Check it out here if you’re reading the book now, had trouble imagining it as described or just want a refresher.

    Catching Fire looks good, tho I like the first Hunger Games book just on its own without the sequels. It’s like she took a break from the writing since she got famous.

      The first one is definitely my favorite of the series, with the last one being my least favorite which is odd. The middle book is usually the least liked, at least for me, but I think the movie is really going to do it justice. Maybe even more so than the first movie did.

        My experience has been that the third one’s the least like and the first two are pretty awesome. I personally like the first two. But that’s just me.

        Have you picked up Allegiant yet? I know you just finished Insurgent, right? I’d be interested to see how you feel about it. And if you haven’t read it yet, avoid my next post haha.

        I’m still waiting for it at work. I think I’m number 63 or something.
