Hunger Games News: New Trailer, China Glaze, and Capitol Couture!

The Hunger Games will be released on March 23.

With less than 50 days until the premiere of the much-anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games, Lionsgate has really ramped up their advertisement. On Thursday, a second trailer went live and was shown tonight during the Super Bowl. It features much more of the story than the teaser or first trailer showed including Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) volunteering for The Hunger Games for her sister, a portion of her interview with Caesar Flickerman (Stanley Tucci), as well as Lenny Kravitz's Cinna pinning the Mockingjay pin to her uniform. I happened to see the first theatrical trailer on the big screen for the first time and I must say that it looks simply wonderful.


It would seem that movie tie-in nail polish is something quite popular now, with Twilight and The Muppets being among the movies that have seen their own versions. It was recently announced that the brand China Glaze would market a brand of fingernail polish based on The Hunger Games and they are now available for pre-order! There will be twelve colors in the Capitol Colours line which represent an aspect of each district. Among the polishes to choose from are Luxe and Lush, Stone Cold, and Fast Track. The colors range from flashy to neutral and would be a perfect accompaniment to any of the fine Capitol fashions. I'm hoping my local Ulta store will be carrying the polish and I'll give a proper review when it is released!

Speaking of which, a new fashion zine straight from the Capitol has gone online. Capitol Couture features the most stylish citizens of Panem as well as rumors and gossip about the 74th annual Hunger Games. The premiere issue showcases the ever so stylish Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), one of District 12's mentors as well as the face of the China Glaze nail polish line. Effie is a definite balance to Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson), District 12 mentor and winner of the 50th Hunger Games. You can sign up for the mailing list to have each issue of Capitol Couture delivered to your mailbox.

Whether you've read the books or not, this movie does not look like it's going to disappoint. The odds are in our favor on March 23 when the movie releases, as there will be a special one week engagement in IMAX! Tickets go on sale February 22.
