“I’m still betting on you, Girl On Fire”
She’s coming. Here’s Jennifer Lawrence, aka Katniss Everdeen, the Girl On Fire, arriving at LAX yesterday presumably to prepare for the Catching Fire press tour. She will be everywhere up in your face for the next few weeks leading up to the November 22 premiere. A new TV spot for the movie was just released yesterday. I’ve attached it below. It’s my favourite so far of all the previews that we’ve seen so far, I think because of the song, which isn’t my favourite song on standalone, but it works here, as a complement to Katniss’s struggle and at the end, when those bars from The Hunger Games “whistle” close off the clip, yeah, now, finally, finally I’m jacked.
Sidebar on that music though – the Harry Potter franchise was able to do it, you know, with a signature melody (Hedwig’s Theme, right?) that identified it immediately:
But for all its success, Twilight couldn’t.
The Hunger Games on the hand certainly comes closer.
