The folk’s over at Hypable are theorizing that a Hunger Games teaser trailer could possibly be released when Twilight star Taylor Lautner’s new movie Abduction is released. Here ‘s why :
1) Abduction is a Lionsgate film just like The Hunger Games. Lionsgate could release the trailer with Abduction to help boost ticket sales. It’s a win-win: Lionsgate promotes their big upcoming film while also securing some extra Abduction money from The Hunger Games fans.
2) Taylor Lautner. He’s also the star of Twilight, which many in the media are (wrongly) connecting toThe Hunger Games because of the ‘love triangle’. Lionsgate knows that many Twilight fans will be heading out to see Lautner in Abduction, and we know they want these viewers to go see The Hunger Games too.
3) By mid-September we’ll be exactly six months away from the release of The Hunger Games. That’s the perfect time for a teaser trailer to be out, and it’ll give us ample time to get a larger trailer a couple of months later.
4) It follows a very common trend in the movie industry: a studio will attach a trailer for their upcoming film onto one of their own. Warner Brothers and Summit have released Harry Potter andTwilight trailers with their own films.
They make some valid points. What do you guys think? Sound off in the comments !
