Do you know 'Hunger Games'? Prove it!
Just days after Lionsgate announced the start of production for Catching Fire, Josh Hutcherson and Sam Claflin are already showing their stuff as tributes.

Celebuzz has the first exclusive photos of the film’s stars in and out of costume in between scene on the Hunger Games sequel.

Although co-star Jennifer Lawrence was nowhere to be seen, director Francis Lawrence, who took over helming duties from The Hunger Games writer-director Gary Ross, already has at least two of her male counterparts suiting up for action.

Which Hunger Games star seems to be in better shape?

Judging by his ripped physique, newcomer to the series Claflin (The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) is more than ready to compete. The actor didn’t hesitate to leave his short off while making his way to the set.

But even at a diminutive 5’7”, Hutcherson looked ready to battle as he put on his skintight tribute costume.

Launch the gallery — above — of more exclusive photos from the Hunger Games: Catching Fire set.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is set for release on November 22, 2013. Watch this video which explores the world of the tributes:
