Here's our first official look at Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Finnick (Sam Claflin) in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I hope the movies get better as they go along, because the books certainly didn't. I liked the series, I just felt the two last books weren't as strong as the first one. They have the opportunity to make things better when adapting this story to film, so hopefully they do that.
It opens up in conventional theaters and IMAX on November 22nd. Are you excited for the sequel, and do you think it has the potential to be better than the first film?
"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.
The sequel is being directed by Francis Lawrence, and it also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, Woody Harrelson, Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amanda Plummer, Lynn Cohen, Patrick St. Esprit, Meta Golding, Bruno Gunn, Alan Ritchson, E. Roger Mitchell, Maria Howell, Stephanie Leigh Schlund, and Jeffrey Wright.
