The Hunger Games coming to life.

Because of the hype that the first week of class has given me, I almost totally forgot that Lionsgate would be releasing the first Official trailer of The Hunger Games last Monday (November 14, 2011), until I saw it at Airiz's blog (Cinderella in Combat Boots). The movie is the big screen adaptation of the 1st in the best selling dystopian-set book series penned by Suzanne Collins, and is set to be showed on March 2012.

Whew! Goosebumps and a tear in my eye. That moment where Prim's name was picked from the bowl of names - that's where it all began. Effie, Cinna, Haymitch, District 12, the Capitol (though a glimpse) - though I admit I've had second thoughts in the ability of Lionsgate to bring to life this dystopian community, watching the trailer feels like perfection unraveling in my eyes. Haha, I know, it's a bit of an overreaction.. but it was the first time that I've read a book series long before it was even in the talks to be made as a film. The anticipation and the excitement - during the casting, the signing of the contract, and all - has about killed me. And seeing this - the result of all the process was worth it. It's just almost the first half of the book, and I'm crying like a fool already - especially that part where Katniss screamed "I volunteer!". Goodness!

This movie is definitely in my watch-list for 2012, as in absolutely! I pretty much want to time-travel forward to March 12, 2012. Seriously! I'll mark the date. So, excuse me while I go rape the 'replay' button. :)
