First images from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire showcase Philip Seymour Hoffman and more

01.10.2013

Yesterday we got our first official look at Jennifer Lawrence in THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE via the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Now, EW has revealed several images from the new film, including our first look at Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee.

The first thing I noticed was that he essentially looks like Philip Seymour Hoffman. I can almost imagine Hoffman reluctantly agreeing to wearing the ridiculous costumes but he would not mess with his hair. Aside from Hoffman, returning stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and Woody Harrelson all look about the same as they did in the first THE HUNGER GAMES.

Plot: In the thrilling sequel THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE, Katniss Everdeen and fellow tribute Peeta Mellark have barely returned home after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games when they are whisked away once again by the Capitol. Forced to leave her family and best friend Gale, Katniss is dispatched on a victory tour of Panem with Peeta, where rebellion is seething in all 12 districts.

The Capitol is enraged and ready to strike back . . . as President Snow prepares the most diabolical edition of the Hunger Games yet. THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will be directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has over 36 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will likely be premiering a trailer sometime in the very near future seeing as the release date of November 22, 2013 is now less than a year away.

This shows how a simple concept can be made into something so incredibly stupid. Hell it would have been better if this was done more with the concept of quake 3 arena with an alien race collecting dozens of combatants to fight each other to the death for the prize of freedom or unreal tournament with alien and mutant races competing in a tournament of games to settle who is truly the strongest of the species. Sadly this movie takes such a simple idea and turns it into another twihard crapfest.

Sadly this movie takes such a simple idea and turns it into another twihard crapfest. So many better ways this could have been done. Its such a waste that such good talents are being wasted like this. Im gonna probably get a mountain load of thumbs down for this but someone has gotta say it.

Someone doesn't realize this is based on a YA novel.

Or it's possible that jeanericuser knows it's based on a novel...because despite the rant above, it's spot on. The first Hunger Games book was really a good story. The 2nd and 3rd novels were absolute shit, putting the author right up there with JK Rowling for one of the crappiest jobs of starting a great series and ending it in the toilet.

"Why, Mr Hoffman? Why?"

"The paycheck, that's why."

"Oh, right. Good on you."
