The first Hunger Games film merely whetted the appetite for fans of Suzanne Collins‘ young adult trilogy of novels and its protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, “the girl on fire.” The stakes have been raised for the next adaptation, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Lionsgate put the odds ever in San Diego Comic-Con attendees’ favor Saturday with their panel. The cast and crew were on hand to represent, including director Francis Lawrence, and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Willow Shields, Lenny Kravitz, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson. The panel was moderated by Fandango chief correspondent Dave Karger.
With the panel came the debut of a new trailer, which shows the most recent Hunger Games champions, Katniss and Peeta, in their post-winning life and the Victory Tour that followed. But now, the 75th annual Hunger Games is set to begin and this time, the circumstances have changed, as the tributes will now consist of all the previous champions against each other. Also, the Capitol isn’t too happy with Katniss and are plotting to get rid of her. We also see the love conflict with Katniss, Peta, and Gale.
Watch the new trailer here below.
