A new trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire debuted yesterday at the con, while Jennifer Lawrence continues to be very Jennifer Lawrence.
These almost certainly won’t be the last trailers out of the con, but these two revealed yesterday are certainly among my most-anticipated. Book 2 of Legend of Korra will be coming in September, but you can watch the first three minutes now.
The Veronica Mars movie is expected early next year.
We’ll have links of the rest of the non-Star Wars announcements later. There are apparently some doozies coming today…
A quick, simple teaser from the sequel to How to Train Your Dragon does the job pretty stylishly. Below the cut, a few genre-ajacent trailers…
This new Pacific Rim trailer focuses a bit more on the people and internal tech than the giant robot/monster fighting. The Mary Sue points to an interesting quote from Legendary Entertainment’s Jon Jashni:
Jashni maintains that the “fanboy psychographic” isn’t limited to men anymore, and that character helps sell a movie to all audience segments. “There’s an emotional aspect to this movie, and there’s a bombastic aspect,” he says. “Some women will respond to the emotion inherent in the movie, some will respond to the spectacle. Same is true for men and adults. ”
Well, at least someone gets it.

The TV stations held their upfronts last week, giving advertisers (and viewers) their first look at fall’s new shows. So your first trailer park of the week is devoted to genre and genre-ajacent TV show trailers.
Up top, the biggest gun: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. from Joss Whedon and the Disney/Marvel conglomerate, coming at you on ABC, Tuesdays at 8:00. And yes, there is already a push to abbreviate this as MAoS, so pass it on.
Note that yes, some of these are spoiling their show’s first episode, but love it or leave it, their main purpose is to sell ads.
And it’s the first trailer for the Ender’s Game adaption, which really wants you know that a bunch of these actors have been up for/won Oscars. (Ford was nominated for Witness in 1985, which I can’t blame anyone for forgetting) Book fans may want to check out io9’s spoiler-full screencap study of the trailers.
Below the cut, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost go pubbing, George Clooney and Sandra Bullock get lost in space, and… Alien folksingers, because why not?
