Lionsgate has released four new images from Francis Lawrence’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”, featuring most of the major characters, including President Snow and Philip Seymour Hoffman, who joins the franchise as the awesomely named Plutarch Heavensbee. Like Wes Bentley’s character in the first movie, Hoffman’s character is getting a major expansion in the film, thanks to the fact that the books are written exclusively from the Katniss’ point of view, as most YA books are, you might have noticed.
In case you missed the first trailer for the movie, you can check it out here.
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Willow Shields, Stanley Tucci, Paula Malcomson, and Sam Claflin.
