This new international trailer is basically a shorter version of the last trailer. As with the first film, the marketing seems to be focusing on what happens before the Games, rather than showing off the action within the actual Games. This is a welcome change to the current trend of revealing way too much in trailers and TV spots.
“THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.”
