This just in: AN ARENA FULL OF FEELINGS!!!

It's the much anticipated full-length trailer for The Hunger Games, of course! We could pretend we don't read young adult fiction (but WHY?) or try to react in a dignified and refined manner, but... *FAN FLAIL*!!!!!!!
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok *gathering some semblance of composure*... Starting from the beginning... Our first look at District 12! So much green. A little too green. But no matter, because there's Gale and we had a crush on him at the beginning of the book and we're suddenly aware that that actually did indeed happen. You can send us a calling card any time, Gale! AND OH MY GOSH IT'S THE REAPING DAY. Admiring the costuming and period feel to it all, but then it's all Gale who? (minus the part where he carries Prim through the crowd... *passing a fan around*) because there is PEETA MELLARK aka one of our most recent and heartstring-tugging fictional boyfriends with a mad case of CREYES FOR EYES! And even though they didn't cast Hunter Parrish as Peeta, we really want to give him a hug and live happily ever after, so... You have won us over with the water works, Josh Hutcherson- KUDOS! And let's love on this scene a little longer because it looks like they did a fine job capturing the high emotion of the moment i.e. the Mount Vesuvius of FEELINGS! Engrossed, engrossed, engrossed, but pardonnez-moi, is that the fire dress? Quelle disappointment! Also: Stanley Tucci! Haymitch is looking a little too wig-shop Ken doll, but it's okay because Katniss is getting bull's eyes on dummy hearts because she's incredibly awesome. And then it's the rooftop scene and if we were Katniss, we'd be confessing our love to Peeta right about now. Oh Peeta! You are so honorable! Wahhhhhhh Katniss is being shot up to the arena in a tube and WE JUST NEED THIS MOVIE RIGHT NOW! And they're off! And Peeta's lookin' fierce and WE ARE SO IN LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On a scale of not interested to eternal devotion, we're rating this trailer at a solid Peeta-Mellark's-face-can-be-embroidered-on-all-the-pillows-at-Château-Victorian-Swag. What is it about seeing our fictional boyfriends fighting for their lives in dystopia that gives us so many ALL CAPS FEELINGS?!?! Can someone get us a time machine? Because March 23rd can't get here soon enough!
