A new 'Hunger Games' movie poster! OMG!
Some people will be very excited about this. Other people will see an embedded flash file and think, huh, well, I suppose it's better than an ani-gif.
The movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins' young adult series "The Hunger Games" -- the trilogy includes "Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay" -- is much anticipated. Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence will portray the heroine, Katniss, who must be a young warrior in a post-apocalyptic America.
The film version of "The Hunger Games" will not coming to the screen for 247 more days, but whoever is behind the promotion manages to sends out an average of a news release a week, if not more, to build excitement.
For some people, this works. For other people, it's caused a certain amount of "Hunger Games" fatigue.
Today's news release was about a poster, or rather, a "poster," which is actually a screen image with moving flames in a rectangle shaped that kind of resembles a poster. OMG.
