Review: This is not the first time we have seen a 360 video used as a preview and trailer for a movie, nor will it be the last. But it has to be said ‘The Hunger Games 360’ is probably the worst of them all. It’s not even 360 video, it some poorly made 360 animations with short 2D clips of the movie! But I suppose it is free and worth a look, but even if you don’t have a VR headset, you can watch the whole thing in the video below! Why not watch it and let me know what you think about it in the comments below.
