'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' First Official Pic!Mike Sampson |
'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is still a good 11 months away but it's never too early to get our first look at one of the biggest films of the year. As Jennifer Lawrence prepares to get her second Oscar nominations for 'Silver Linings Playbook,' we've got the first official photo of Lawrence returning as Katniss Everdeen in 'Catching Fire.' Check it out below!
The first 'Hunger Games' movie was one of the biggest films of 2012, behind only 'The Avengers' and 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' looks like it could be even bigger. The film goes a little something like this:
'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.
Joining 'Catching Fire' are actors Sam Claflin ('Snow White and the Huntsman'), Jeffrey Wright and Philip Seymour Hoffman while Francis Lawrence stepped in to replace departing director Gary Ross.
The first 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' was revealed on this Friday's upcoming edition of Entertainment Weekly but you can see it first below! 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' hits theaters on November 22, 2013.
UPDATE: In addition to the 'Catching Fire' cover photo, EW also released a still from the movie on Facebook featuring Sam Claflin as Finnick and Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. Check it out below.
