“The Hunger Games” movie premiere is only a few short weeks away, but we’re can barely wait any longer! Thankfully, Lionsgate knows how to treat fans right and they keep dropping us little “The Hunger Games” movie trailers and video clips to drool over. The latest “The Hunger Games” video clip features the first meeting between our heroine, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), and her games stylist Cinna (Lenny Kravitz).
Now, fans of “The Hunger Games” novels were not all that pleased about the casting of actor and musician Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. Many fans complained that they just could not picture Lenny Kravitz in the role, and frankly, I was one of them. After seeing this clip of Katniss and Cinna in their first interaction on screen, I’m still a bit on the fence. I think, however, that the chemistry seems good and it could turn out to be a good casting choice. After all, I was initially not all that happy about Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, but have since totally fallen in love with her in the role.
I do have to admit, however, that it bugs when a movie director and scriptwriter decide to take a perfectly fabulous scene with great dialogue in a book and alter it to be, well, less awesome than the original. Honestly, I really do not see why it was neccesarry to change up the first meeting scene between Katniss and Cinna. It was just grand the way it was. Oh well, I’m sure there will be more of those moments for me to be cranky at in the movie. Regardless, I still think “The Hunger Games” movie is going to rock it out and leave”Harry Potter” and those sparkly emo “Twilight” vampires in the dust.
“The Hunger Games” movie premieres in theaters on March 23.
