Lionsgate Films has released new photos to promote "The Hunger Games Catching Fire."

The Capitol Couture Portrait Series features the main actors in costumes designed by Trish Summerville.

Based on Suzanne Collins' best-selling series, The Hunger Games films take place in a not-too-distant future in which North American society has collapsed and been replaced by Panem, in which every year two teenagers from each of the country's 12 districts are summoned to the corrupt Capitol to participate in the deadly Hunger Games, a spectacle televised throughout the land.

In the second film in the series, "Catching Fire," Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence will return as the heroine, Katniss. Her character and Peeta, played by Josh Hutcherson, travel on a victory tour for winning the first Hunger Games but are forced back into a special games called the Quarter Quell.

The film is currently shooting in Hawaii.

In an interview with 24 Frames, Lawrence said, "The new movie will be very real, which is what I'm excited about."

The Capitol Couture website describes the look of Effie, played by Elizabeth Banks, as follows: "Effie enchants in an exploding silhouette of chiffon and organza blooms. Never one to waver in her fashionable footwear, her heel-less boots are shod with a golden horse-shoe platform."
