There’s still a love triangle

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Teaser Trailer

This teaser shows Katniss and Gale in a liplock – but that doesn’t mean her love life is going to be simple. In the book, advisers like Woody Harrelson’s former Games winner Haymitch caution Katniss that the only way she has a chance of avoiding political attack for her defiance at the end of the last Games is to convince the powers that be that she was motivated by puppy love for Peeta rather than rebellion. So she has to maintain the pretense of a relationship with Peeta – and to complicate matters, his feelings are very real. This is the sort of thing that is irritating in a Twilight book - "Oh no, all the hot men are in love with me!" - 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.

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
