The Hunger Games Official Trailer

I tend to avoid trailers these days because I don't like getting my hopes up about movies that look good in the trailer then ultimately disappoint, but when I found out The Hunger Games trailer dropped yesterday, I couldn't resist. I love the trilogy, and was leery of the movie adaptation (look at Twilight), but this trailer has me cautiously excited. If the movie is anything like this, it's going to be amazing.

"Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister’s place for the latest match."

Is it weird that I always pictured Haymitch as a cross between Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft? Anyone else have that thought or is it just me? 

What do you think? Great movie or bitter disappointment?
