We were prepared to be wowed by the first look at “The Hunger Games” at the MTV VMAs on Sunday (Aug. 28). Check that: overprepared.
MTV teased the clip throughout the show, but the buildup didn’t quite match the end result. The only footage we saw was a few seconds of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) running through the forest, with some voiceover telling her/us that she’s strong. A flaming tree falls in front of her, and she shoots an arrow that becomes the poster.
And that’s pretty much it. We know the movie’s still in production, and we know that this probably won’t diminish fans’ interest in the film, which hits theaters March 23. But we’d be lying if we said we weren’t hoping for a little more.
What did you think of the teaser?
