Hope For The Hunger Games?

I admit to being a bit dismayed by the look of the Hunger Games trailer. It just doesn't have the feel (for me) that the books did. It's been a long time since I've been this invested in a series and I so want the movie to be perfect. But I'll withhold judgement until I actually see the thing.

I'm an even more rabid fan for the stylings of Joy Williams and John Paul...especially the soul they gave this song. And if such a song exists with regard to Hunger Games, then there's all kinds of hope the movie will meet expectations. May the odds be ever in my favor :)
