Watch the First Hunger Games: Catching Fire Trailer

For those of you who were wise enough not to watch the MTV Movie Awards, the first Hunger Games: Catching Fire teaser trailer is now online for your viewing pleasure. The teaser (which, at two and a half minutes is hardly a teaser) sells the movie well – in fact, incredibly well.

The marketing for the first Hunger Games wasn’t exactly impressive (though that apparently had little impact on the final result), so it’s refreshing to see such a bold, mature and exciting trailer to kick off the campaign for Catching Fire. Remarkably, the teaser doesn’t even touch on the main plot of the film (which involves Katniss and others getting pulled back into another round of the game), but does feature a lot of rioting and revolution stuff.

The scene between Philip Seymour Hoffman and Donald Sutherland is pretty impressive, too. It appears Lionsgate has upped the ante for this one, not unlike Warner Bros. did when it released the third Harry Potter movie (with a new director, new look and a more serious approach).

But check it out for yourself – watch The Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie trailer now.
