Lionsgate revealed the final trailer for their upcoming sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and running at just over a minute long, it is the most intense trailer yet.
The new trailer see’s Donald Sutherland’s President Snow asking Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) if she would like to be part of a real war. There are tensions between Snow and Everdeen, as well as some cool new footage and an moody soundtrack to prove that Catching Fire will indeed be a thrilling sequel.
‘In every scene we asked ourselves, ‘How would these people feel if they came back to the Hunger Games?’,” producer Nina Jacobson told EW recently regarding the mission of respecting the heart of author Suzanne Collins’ sequel, “Catching Fire.” “What happens when you come back from these experiences of war, not what happens in a movie when you’ve kicked a lot of ass?” In the case of Katniss and Peeta, they come back from the initial “Hunger Games” as heroes, but not for long.
Directed by Francis Lawrence, the film 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.
