Re: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Looks pretty awesome. I'm about 100 pages into THG so far, and I'm still really enjoying it.
One change they did make in the movie that I'm kind of happy about is the toning down of Haymitch. At times in the book I thought he got a little to over the top compared to the movie.

Gone, and I can't get any other players to work, likely due to traffic overload. I'll catch it in a few days when not everyone is trying to watch it at once.

It's silly that Lionsgate is trying to keep the second trailer exclusive. Might as well release it everywhere, so everyone can see it to build up hype. Trailers are suppose to be EASY for viewers to find, not a hassle!

Pacific Rim also showed great footage at Comic Con, but never released it until a few days before it the movie released. Movie nearly flopped.

Yeah, I don't quite get it either. Isn't a GOOD thing for people to spread the trailer around to get it to as many eyes as possible? And it's hardly in the "spirit" of copyright protections (meant to ensure that the rights-holders get compensation for the distribution of their product) this piece of work is MEANT to spread around and for as many people as possible to see it.

Re: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The one on Yahoo!Movies still works for me.

Lionsgate has a deal with Yahoo!Movies for the exclusive rights to show the trailer, but I think it's only for a few days (maybe just during the Comic Con IIRC) and then they'll release it everywhere.

Re: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Fantastic trailer. It really feels like the film versions are hitting their stride, finding their own identity. Can't wait for this one.

I think you have it backwards. Yahoo probably sought after and paid Lionsgate for the exclusive rights. (They're kinda desperate to stay in existence.)

Either way, it's a dumb move for all the reasons you mentioned.

Trailer on the official Hunger Games youtube account. So unless Yahoo decides to hack it, this video should keep working...

Re: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Just rewatched the first film. Forgot how good it was. Emotional, too. Catching Fire was my favorite book of the series. I hope that its film at least matches the first one. Judging from the trailer (dubious, I admit), there's a pretty good chance of that happening.

Re: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The whole Yahoo exclusive thing with only them showing the trailer for 24 hours ended being a huge waste of time, not to mention a huge hassle for fans that wanted to see it quickly.

REALLY hoping no other studios do something like this with their trailers in the future!

Re: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Are they pulling after 24hrs? Because I just watched it again an hour or two ago.

No, there's no pulling now. They had a deal with Yahoo!Movies to show the trailer exclusively on their website for the first 24 hours, right after it was shown on the SDCC. Now it's posted on the Hunger Games official Youtube account and it's the regular deal, just like any other new trailer. They'll soon be showing it in theaters as well, I assume.
