The first shot introduces us to District 12 . It's more rustic than I had originally imagined. Personally, when I think futuristic post-apocalyptic setting, I think of more concrete, dead vehicles scattered, maybe some unusual technology. If this was a post war North America, though, in a mining colony, this is probably a lot closer to what it would look like. I think the big thing to remember is that the Capitol wants to keep everyone under control. The only technology the districts have is what the Capitol will allow. They probably cleared the area of any modern remnants other than what they control.

The fence. Of everything in the trailer, for some reason, the fence bothered me the most. I always imagined it as being much taller, much more industrial and opposing. This looks like a simple cattle fence. I suppose that's all they would need to get the job done, but it still didn't fit with how I had thought it should look - what about you? And if that's the worst thing about the trailer, I think we're in pretty good shape!

Gale and Katniss . I know it's already been said, but their conversation seems to come so naturally. Just like they are the old friends they should be. Liam Hemsworth was the one casting choice that I was somewhat unsure of at first. I still don't think he quite looks like the person I imagined, but so far he seems like a great Gale, and that's the most important thing. The chemistry is there, but doesn't seem to be overdone, which I am thankful for. A lot of things in the trailer don't look overdone, which really helps make everything come together in a much more real way.

Katniss hunting. Just a quick shot (no pun intended), but Jennifer Lawrence seems comfortable with a bow, even if the previous screen-cap showed her holding it a bit oddly. I'm going to keep with my theory that she was in the midst of pointing out her target, which is why her hands were off. If there is one thing that Katniss needs to do, it's shoot a bow with confidence.

The hovercraft. This is possibly when they see Lavinia running from the Capitol, later to become an Avox. Though this doesn't actually happen in the first book, timeline wise it could fit into the first movie. It might also be something along the lines of extra peacekeepers coming in for the Reaping, or something generic like that. It's really hard to get a very good glimpse of the hovercraft here, but worth noting is how loud it is. Unless I am misremembering, aren't the hovercraft described as being completely silent? Someone help me out here?

The Reaping. We already had a glimpse of all the potential tributes in their best clothes. It's nice too see it all as one scene now. I know a lot of people wanted to see the Reaping in the trailer and I think they made a good choice by putting it in. It is especially important for those who don't know the story ahead of time. I really like that already we are seeing the large television screens. Television, broadcast, and propaganda, are all so important to the story, I expect to see things like this everywhere. We also get a nice shot of the Capitol's seal hanging on a red banner.

Effie. Maybe not as pink-haired as expected, but still amazingly creepy, out of place, and Capitol-esque. Her accent, too, is spot on to what I heard in my head. Sort of British, but not quite. She wasn't quite as "flouncy" as I had imagined, but the Reaping is a very formal occasion, so there is plenty of time for that later on.

Peacekeepers. Just like Effie, they look completely out of place, making a striking statement of who is in power here. Great uniforms that are not too futuristic that they look goofy.

Prim. We all knew that Willow Shields was going to make a wonderful Prim, and she doesn't disappoint. Her emotion is so innocent and real. Not a lot more to go on at this point, but she is more a symbol and catalyst at this point than anything else.

Prim is Reaped. One of the most important parts of the story, this is one of those do or die moments that either makes or breaks the entire thing. If the audience doesn't feel the helplessness and desperation that comes out of Katniss's love for her sister, the whole point of the movie falls flat. I think it's enough to say that no matter how many times I watch that scene, I get shivers up my spine and I know I will feel it even more when I see it in the theater eventually.

Peeta. Josh Hutcherson has a talent of showing you exactly what he is thinking or feeling, just with his eyes. In just that first glimpse he looks first confused, then despondent, and then resolved, in three blinks of an eye.

Only one comes out. Gale and Katniss again. That line sums up so much, and has so much weight. Another good choice for the trailer.

The Train. One of the few CG elements in the movie. So far, it seems like the computer graphics overall could use a little polish, but there are still months left to do that, and for the most part it is only going to be the pickiest of us that would complain. The design of the train is interesting in that it has a great, slightly futuristic, but still recognizable bullet design, as well as looking like a luxury hotel inside if the brief glimpse of a chandelier is any indication.

The Capitol. Not a lot is seen of the city, but it looks massive enough. It also has a very military type look to it from the outside, despite being the lap of luxury. Appropriate given that it survived and went on to rule after multiple wars

Cinna and makeup. The scene where Katniss is being helped to make an impression is quite stark and jarring. I had thought of it as being a more intimate setting with just her and her style team, but it really is effective to see all the tributes being worked on at once in a hospital-like environment - it reminds me that they are all there to be killed, not to be thought of as people. Cinna has only a small moment here so I can hardly comment. I can't say anything negative about what I see of Lenny Kravitz's portrayal so far, but I can't say a lot positive either. Hopefully we get to see him really shine in the next trailer.
