More release dates, and a trailer for “The Hunger Games”

Last week’s thread on holiday movie release dates has closed, but here are a few answers to those who posted. “Another Happy Day,” with Ellen Barkin, opens November 23 at the Uptown. Luc Besson’s “The Lady” does not currently have a Seattle release date, but early 2012 looks likely. “Burning Man” opens in Australia this month, but as far as I can tell it does not currently have U.S. distribution; that, of course, could change any time. Something else that changed: the release date for the wonderful “The Artist,” which has dropped off Thanksgiving week and now will open here in mid- or late December. It’s worth the wait.
Meanwhile, there are people lined up already to see “Breaking Dawn” (in Los Angeles, lines formed Thursday for tonight’s premiere — and that’s not even to get in to see the movie) Me, I’m going Wednesday night, and I don’t mind telling you I’m a little scared — of the Twi-hards, and of that vampire birth scene, which may well be something I don’t want to see. (And probably won’t be able to hear, if the noise level at previous “Twilight” screenings is any indication.) Is this franchise over yet? Meanwhile, speaking of wildly popular franchises, the trailer for “The Hunger Games” came out today. Haven’t read the book yet (though I did buy it), and I know a lot of you liked it. Does the trailer seem faithful to you?
