The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The first full-length trailer for THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE was shown at Comic Con, and as promised it is now online for all the Katniss fans out there who didn't make it to San Diego. The sequel looks to be bigger in scope than the first and the stakes certainly seem much higher. I've heard from many that the second and third books aren't nearly as good as the first, but maybe while the story was being worked on for the big screen adaption director Francis Lawrence and company fixed some things.

In the trailer you see a little bit more of the Victory Tour and some of the rebellions that have taken place within the districts. If I was a big fan of the series though, I'd be a little annoyed because a lot of what is shown was already revealed in the teaser trailer. Although I'm sure with how well the first one did in theaters Lionsgate could probably release the movie without a single trailer and it would still do over $300 million.

"Remember who the real enemy is."

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.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, Amanda Plummer, Jeffrey Wright, and Alan Ritchson, THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE hits theaters on November 22nd, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Do you think CATCHING FIRE will make as much as the first film in theaters or will there be a drop?

I remember how Joblo (yes, I don't visit other movie websites - not a movie website slut maaaaannnnn - strictly a one movie website man!) hyped up the first movie...particularly in reference to the nonsense that was Twilight. Having seen the first movie, whilst it was far from the Twilight nonsense I wasn't particularly impressed with it - kept thinking about Battle Royale or that Katniss didn't seem to do too much considering she was the main protagonist (much like Harry Potter in this first

Having seen the first movie, whilst it was far from the Twilight nonsense I wasn't particularly impressed with it - kept thinking about Battle Royale or that Katniss didn't seem to do too much considering she was the main protagonist (much like Harry Potter in this first movie or so - lots of help). That said, this trailer looks good - definitely larger in scope - more epic.

Love the 1st film. This looks better. The story becomes a much bigger story now than just the games.

I was honestly very surprised by it. The first film was enjoyable, but this somehow looks better, which is somewhat amazing considering the book is mediocre. I am hoping that this greatly improves upon the book, and so far, the trailer sells it quite well.

Really liked the first movie, this looks like an improvement in my eyes. Elvilvong the characters and slowly progressing the story, just like every sequel should do.

I don't think this series is Twlight, not by any stretch of the imagination. The first movie was good and by all accounts, the books are very well-written. It was a nicely-presented story and Battle Royale comparisons notwithstanding, was very compelling and engaging. I would much rather this be the model for future young adult movie adaptations as opposed to Twilight being the model. Looking forward to it.

Much better than the first trailer. I remember the lion share of people ignoring the first Twilight movie, then the final movie was covered by national news. I think this will have the same effect.

I'm not going to lie. I enjoyed the first one (it's not like the other childish book adaptations we've gotten as of late) and this sequel looks even more mature. It's definitely a huge improvement over the first trailer. Will be there opening weekend.

Hell yeah

Looks like another solid adaptation of the book. I'm down for sure.

And as for the tidbit, yeah this will make just as much if not more.
