With The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘s first teaser trailer set to premiere during the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday April 14th, Lionsgate released a new image from The Hunger Games sequel. The image features Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) reunited with her sister, Primrose (Willow Shields). If you recall, Katniss volunteered to be the female District 12 Tribute in place of her sister for the 74th Hunger Games in the first movie, so this reunion was long in the making.
Lionsgate also launched the website TheHungerGamesExplorer.com, which appears to feature a countdown clock to when the first teaser trailer will be released, as well as six new images that will also be unlocked periodically. At the moment, only two of the six images are viewable. The website also features various social media tools and locations such as Twitter, Google+, and Facebook.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire follows Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) as they return to District 12 as newly crowned champions of the 74th Hunger Games. Their homecoming is short-lived, because the pair soon sets out on a Victory Tour of the other Districts of Panem. While on the Victory Tour, Katniss begins to understand the budding rebellion against the Capitol and President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Katniss and Peeta later participate in the Third Quarter Quell, or 75th Hunger Games, which is comprised of the past winners of the last 25 Hunger Games.
Actors Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth are all returning to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and they will be joined by a new cast, including Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffery Wright, Jena Malone, and Sam Claflin, who will play fan-favorite Finnick Odair.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will hit theaters everywhere on November 22nd, in IMAX. Remember this scene from the first movie?
