Unlike some of the earlier teases for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, this theatrical trailer seems intent on showing you some action. It opens as the first teaser did, with a lot of political talk. In the wake of the events of the first film, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has become a symbol of hope for people around the country, the spark of a coming revolution. So Donald Sutherland must get rid of her in a spectacular, not-at-all suspicious manner. The solution: have a big 75th anniversary Hunger Games with the most deadly previous winners they can find. In the middle of it all: Katniss.
Will she overcome the plots against her? Will she lead her people to revolution? Will her family pay the price? Will Stanley Tucci’s character ever stop going to whatever bizarro hair salon he obviously frequents? Are there more ridiculous character names in the third book than what we’re going to see in this one? I’m looking at you, Cashmere, Beetee, Wiress, Enobaria, Finnick, Gloss and Johanna. Wait, not that last one. Readers of the books know the answers to these and many other important questions, but the rest of us will have to wait for the movie. For now, lets enjoy the setup for one of the most anticipated sequels of the year.
Watch the trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire below, which debuted this afternoon at Comic-Con:
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due in theaters on November 22.
