‘Catching Fire’ First Look: Katniss Keeps Her Promise
Katniss Everdeen is a woman of her word.
In the newest first-look still from the hotly-anticipated The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Jennifer Lawrence’s heroine returns home to embrace her younger sister, Primrose Everdeen (Willow Shields), after making good on her promise to survive ever-deadly gladiatorial Hunger Games.
The forthcoming Francis Lawrence-helmed sequel to the box office record-setting blockbuster Hunger Games — a Lionsgate production based on the Suzanne Collins best-selling young adult book trilogy — will show Katniss and fellow District 12 winner, Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), travel through Panem on their victory tour, trying to carry on their star-crossed lovers storyline under the suspicions of President Snow (Donald Sutherland).
Though the film is now in post-production, fans still have many months to wait for Catching Fire: the film will hit theaters Nov. 22, 2013. But in the meantime, Lionsgate is keeping fanatics biting at the bit with its perfectly-planned promotional campaign, which has already treated Hunger Games groupies to character portraits, posters, and on-set stills.
And come Sunday, the Girl on Fire will return to the screen. The first-ever teaser trailer for Catching Fire will debut at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, a 10-second sneak peek of which lit up the web just over a week ago. So tune into the awards show Sunday at 9 p.m. ET for a glimpse of Katniss and Peeta stepping out before the world of Panem as winners.
Here’s a little GIF, courtesy of MTV, to hold you over till then:
