“The Hunger Games” are back and fiercer than ever!
A new trailer for the “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” was released over the weekend and shows Jennifer Lawrence back as Katniss Everdeen and back in the 75th annual games.
Instead of a lineup of newbies like in her last experience, Everdeen is pitted against past “Hunger Games” winners, alongside Peeta, played by Josh Hutcherson.
“Last year was child’s play. This year you’re dealing with all experienced killers,” Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) tells Lawrence in the trailer.
The two-minute clip also shows the hope brought on by Katniss’s victory in the last games, one that President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and new cast-member Phillip Seymour Hoffman plan to crush. You see Snow threatening Katniss with the slaughter of her people, presumable prompting her to return to the games yet again.
For all the lovebirds out there, Everdeen is continuing her sham of a relationship with Peeta, seen in the trailer kissing Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), who is committed to fight against the tyranny of the corrupt government.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” hit theaters Nov. 22.
