Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson in ‘Catching Fire’ Pics
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is gearing up to take over theaters November 21.
Until then, Lionsgate has released a slew of promotional posters, as the film’s brave leads prepare for the renowned Quarter Quell. In the first image released, District 12 tributes Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) are looking slick and suited up, as the 22-year-old star sports her characters signature braided hair style.
The new tournament features victors from previous Games and is held every 25 years – hence the name Quarter Quell. Among the ruthless competitors are Finnick (Sam Claflin), Johanna (Jenna Malone), Wiress (Amanda Plummer), and Cassmere (Stephanie Leigh Schlund).
During a recent interview with On The Air With Ryan Seacrest Hutcherson shared, “On this movie, the story kind of opens up a lot. I think there’s a lot more interesting plots that start to develop and everything thickens. We up the overall feel of the movie.” The 20-year-old star also gave a spoiler that audiences will “be very satisfied with” Katniss and Peeta’s evolving relationship.
Only time can tell if Catching Fire will outdo the colossal $686 million the first Hunger Games brought in worldwide, but there sure is a lot of hype.
Check out the trailer below, and get excited for Catching Fire to hit theaters November 21.
