Watch an Honest Trailer for ‘The Hunger Games’


Let’s face it: there are no perfect translations of books to film. Films leave things out, change important scenes, fail to capture nuance — it’s enough to drive a fan girl mad. But inevitably, when watching any kind of adaptation of a book you’ve already read, your knowledge fills in the blanks that a person with no experience with the story might be left wondering about. In this hilarious spoof of The Hunger Games trailer by Screen Junkies, you’ll get it all broken down for you. And it’s apt timing as well for any crossover fan — the film has just come out on DVD and the three books have just surpassed the seven Harry Potter novels in Amazon sales.
