‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Final Trailer Takes Katniss to War
The final trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘ debuted tonight during the fourth game of the MLB World Series, and it’s pretty awesome. In the upcoming sequel, as Donald Sutherland’s President Snow teases in voice over, Katniss will go from playing mere games to full-out war when she and Peeta are targeted to compete in a new and deadly tournament.
Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson return for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,’ and while the latest — and final — trailer features footage we’ve seen before, it also gives us a peek at Katniss and Peeta in their fiery costumes, riding through an arena in horse-drawn chariots. Additionally, there’s plenty of Katniss getting tough with her bow and arrow, and for whatever reason, some terrifying baboons.
In the sequel, Katniss and Peeta, still celebrating their ‘Hunger Games’ victory and touring the districts, become acutely aware of a rebellion brewing among the people. But President Snow isn’t about to let these two defiant victors get in the way of his plans, and recruits them both to compete in the Quarter Quell, the 75th annual Hunger Games tournament. The stakes are higher, the threats more deadly, and Katniss is as fierce as ever.
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ also stars Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Jena Malone, and hits theaters on November 22.
