Rebellion is very near – especially in District 11

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Teaser Trailer

The early scenes in this teaser, with Katniss and Peeta presented to a crowd, take place in District 11 on their victory tour, rather than their native District 12. In the book, Katniss is moved to acknowledge the help she received from the two District 11 Tributes (notably her friend Rue) during her Games, and an old man raises a salute to her in return. The rest of the crowd follows his example – but the Capitol’s Peacekeeper guards execute the ringleader and beat up the rest. This is the sort of thing that is unlikely to quash rebellious thoughts in the long term, however good an idea it might seem to the Capitol in the short. The scene with Katniss in desperate tears follows this execution, and the brutality remains with her long afterwards.

1 not a bad article, but...
This article mostly does good to represent what THG is about, but the people who actually need to know that are those who haven't read the books. Did you really have to spoil the Quarter Quell for them? Lionsgate have so far tried not to, but every online article sadly does. Also, the ending of the "love triangle" part is incorrect and misleading: "but in The Hunger Games Katniss herself is so much more concerned with staying alive than with either of the guys, which rather puts romantic dilemmas in perspective." You should have said that she's not concerned with ther, that she doesn't want romance, but it's certainly not true that she's not concerned about ]. I hate it when articles like these, in trying to show that Katniss is not Bella Swann, go to the other extreme and misrepresent her as some sort of a cold selfish survivalist, which is the complete opposite of what she is. If she's more concerned with her own survival than "either of the guys", why is she risking her life tMore
