The two genres that probably get the most out of Comic Con are the comic book movies and the movies based on Young Adult books. Just take a look at what “Twilight” did. The “Hunger Games” franchise has recaptured those glory days of “Twilight”, , so it’s no surprise that the franchise was back at Comic Con for part 2, “Catching Fire”, with just about everyone showing up for a panel and later, some signings. Pictures from those three events below.
And in case you missed it, the second trailer for the film was also recently released, and you can watch that here.
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.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland.
The games begin again this November 22nd.
