With Jennifer Lawrence cast in the lead role of Katniss Everdeen for Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games — not to mention a release date of March 23, 2012 already established — production is moving forward on the adaptation of Suzanne Collins‘ YA series. But before we get more unlikely casting choices that’ll just make us grumpy, check out this excellent faux-trailer that a fan put together and posted to YouTube in September 2010.
The trailer is cobbled together from a variety of action films and thrillers — mostly movies, but some TV as well. The creator, Dayln3, seems to have prioritized actors over setting in some cases, liberally using footage of Summer Glau and Alex Pettyfer to portray the parts of Katnissa and her fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark. (For the record, producers seem to be currently considering Hunter Parrish and Josh Hutcherson.)
Back to the footage. I spy with my little eye… Resident Evil, The Island, Firefly, The 4400, Gamer, Ella Enchanted, and Beastly, among others.
