‘Catching Fire’ First Look: Katniss Keeps Her Promise

at 10:00 am | By

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).

But unfortunately for little sister Prim, Katniss isn’t on safe and sound at home for long. The District 12 victors are soon called back into the bloody arena by Snow, where they will compete amongst fellow former Hunger Game champions in a bid to survive the 75th annual gladiatorial games, known as the Quarter Quell.

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:
