American viewers watching the 2013 World Series last night were treated to the exclusive first showing of the final trailer for Catching Fire, the upcoming sequel to the smash hit of 2012, The Hunger Games. The film is scheduled for release in the UK on 21st November.
Catching Fire is the second novel in Suzanne Collin’s bestselling young adult series, and stars Oscar winning actor Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, and a host of A list names, including relative new comer Sam Claflin as the mysterious victor for District Four, Finnick Odair.
The trailer gives an intriguing look at the arena that this games with be situated in, with lush forests, and the mysterious central water space, as well as some of the dangers that Katniss faces in the arena this time. Also interesting is the brief shot from behind of the ‘mockingjay’ dress that Katniss wears for her interview with Caesar Flickerman – we can only hope that the reveal of this dress is as dramatic as promised in the novels. The trailer gives a full taste of what is to come from the film, as it shows hints of the drama both inside and outside the 75th Annual Hunger Games.
The trailer is below: watch, enjoy and may the odds be ever in your favour! Happy Hunger Games.
