Lionsgate unveiled the official trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire during their 2013 San Diego Comic Con panel and the fans who’d waited in line for hours for a chance at getting a seat in Hall H were impressed. The first look at the film actually reveals more of the plot than you’d expect, with Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) pulled back into the Hunger Games as part of a special 75th annual celebration. The trailer shows the citizens who reside outside the Capitol are no longer willing to be oppressed, Katniss being threatened by President Snow (Donald Sutherland), and even a stolen kiss moment between Katniss and Gale (Liam Hemsworth). Also appearing briefly in the trailer are Philip Seymour Hoffman, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci (sporting a wicked ponytail), Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, and Willow Shields.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will arrive in theaters on November 22, 2013.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
