“The Latest Trailer of The Hunger Games Catches Fire
“Hunger Games” fans still have four months to wait before the second film in the series, “Catching Fire,” hits theaters. But a new trailer was released at Comic-Con this weekend and the odds are definitely in your favor that you’ll love it.
Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) may have won the Games in the first film, but as readers of Suzanne Collins’ books know, their troubles are far from over.
“You fought very hard in the Games, Miss Everdeen, but they were games,” Panem President Snow (Donald Sutherland) tells our heroine in the new trailer. “Would you like to be in a real war?”
War is where Panem seems to be headed, with Katniss and Peeta’s victory making them heroes to the subjugated Districts. But The Capitol is preparing for the Quarter Quell, the 75th annual games, which come with a twist.
Much of the cast from the first film returns, with some new additions, including Sam Claflin as Finnick, a hunky 24-year-old who won the Games at just 14.
While the first sighting of Finnick was much-awaited by fans, Jezebel.com was less than pleased , comparing him to “the love interest from a 2002 Disney Channel original movie,” and sneering, “District 4 — rich in the fruits of the sea and L.A. Looks Mega Hold hair gel.” Some were unhappy that “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams wasn’t cast in the part.
But readers pointed out that Finnick was described in the books as a teen-idol type, and the casting fits that description perfectly. “I think he’s dreamy, and very cheeky & cute looking, which is what I wanted from Finnick, so I’m happy!” wrote a reader going by Glitterbug.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” opens Nov. 22.”
