This latest trailer for The Hunger Games Catching Fire was cut for Japanese audiences, who unfortunately have to wait a little longer for the next instalment of The Hunger Games than a lot of other countries.
International release strategies really are often very unfair. And occasionally rather daft.
Both Donald Sutherland and Philip Seymour Hoffman really do sell their lines in that short snippet.
As the story progresses through Catching Fire and into the two Mockingjay films Sutherland will get some really good opportunities to play wicked. He seems to be relishing the chances he’s had so far.
The Hunger Games Catching Fire will be released in UK and American cinemas on the 21st and 22nd of November, respectively, and in Japan on the 27th of December.
