Since the new Catching Fire trailer’s premiering at San Diego Comic Con this weekend, Effie Trinket’s leaking new content all over the place to get fans excited. You know, just in case we weren’t already biting at the chomp to see Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth on the SDCC panel together. This photo’s just one of the many things we expect to see pop up this week as the powers that be continue to tease us. However, unlike many of the prior stills, this one has me concerned.
While Katniss Everdeen’s known for being revolutionary, I never thought that it included her fashion. However this newest Catching Fire still reveals that this movie will be full of some bold choices . After all, it’s not every lady who can pull off a jumpsuit when her country’s on the brink of a war. Personally, I would’ve gone with a romper. Maybe even with a flap in the back so I don’t waste any time trying to go to the bathroom. But that’s just me. I’m in it to win it. Katniss is in it to avoid deciding between Peeta Mellark or Gale Hawthorne. If only I had a galleon for every time I saw a love triangle start a full scale war, I could afford to buy a teenager to write the next hit trilogy series. #IfOnly
And let’s talk about Peeta’s outfit here. It screams suburban angst. You and I both know that light jersey hoodie came straight from American Apparel and that his jeans are designer. I don’t remember seeing the soldiers in the War of 1812 stepping out onto the battlefield wearing casual duds, but maybe those drawings got lost between then and the creation of Panem. Or maybe Peeta and Katniss aren’t taking this job seriously enough. Maybe someone else should be in charge. What’s Bella and Edward’s kid up to these days. Besides, of course, doing weird imprinty things with her elder werewolf friend. Or maybe Ginny Weasly? She proved herself to be pretty capable of leading others into war …without getting caught up in what belt goes with what jumpsuit.
Or maybe — and this is the biggest maybe you’ll read on the internet today — I’m reading too much into this photo. But it’s like, what else am I supposed to do when the Catching Fire gods are insistent on sharing this movie with us still by still by occasional gif by still? Just wait around and figure out the plot by seeing the movie in November. Um no, double no, no all the way to District 13 and back.
