Lionsgate released a new official trailer for their upcoming movie sequel directed by Francis Lawrence, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The film is based off of the second sci-fi adventure novel in The Hunger Games trilogy by author Suzanne Collins. This trailer, first shown at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, brings new experienced killers to the battle. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is set to release in theaters on November 22, 2013. Previously, we wrote about the film’s first teaser trailer and poster series.
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ begins as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). 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 (Donald Sutherland) prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
