The marketing team is finally done with all those short teasers and public service announcements by Donald Sutherland, and we now have a full trailer for
Jennifer Lawrence the new Hunger Games movie, featuring a lot more action, the white army vs the black, and exploding arrows. There’s a scene below in which the rebels rush the guards who open fire with automatic weapons. There’s one of those in every single movie where the oppressed overthrow the oppressors. I can never get my head around them though. The oppressed have usually been doing quite well up until these confrontations, in their own guerrilla way. Then instead of carrying on in that way – picking off the baddies, keeping their gang alive, they decide on some ridiculous confrontation during which the best supporting characters die, usually just after saying something rather emotive. I know that’s what the audience wants, I’m just saying, if I were in charge of the rebel frontline, things would be different. We’d be in it for the long-long game.
