Keep It Secret, Keep It Safe
As the amount of days before The Hunger Games comes out lessens, there will be a higher chance of leaked images coming out, and yesterday we got one. Though it was kind of hard to avoid it, for those that haven’t seen it, I won’t say what it was or what we think it could’ve been from. Because we weren’t meant to see it yet and you’re not going to get the information from me.
It might be an unpopular opinion, but I’m really unhappy to have seen it. It was a picture of a screen so it was low quality, and I hate when my first time seeing something is of that quality. I would’ve preferred seeing it the way we should have, official and clear and of nice quality and without the watermark. Oh yes the watermark, which is there so that if an image of it were leaked, they could track down who leaked it. Come Monday morning, someone will probably get fired.
Also, as someone trying to get into the industry, it really irks me that whoever leaked the image didn’t behave more responsibly and professionally, I don’t care how big of a fan you are or how long we’ve been waiting.
As much as we’re dying to see how certain scenes are in the Hunger Games movie, please, PLEASE, cooperate with Lionsgate’s marketing team and take it as the studio means for us to see it. Leaked images being passed around the internet lessens the grandeur and excitement of, say, seeing another trailer. It feels cheap and ruins it. We’re all very protective of the series so those fortunate enough to know little secrets about the movie should do well to keep them.
I am not amused,
