In anticipation of the release of the “Catching Fire” teaser trailer at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, Lionsgate has unveiled a new still from the upcoming movie. It’s not especially spoilery, but it does show Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen seemingly hugging her sister Prim, played by Willow Shields, goodbye.
MTV has already unveiled a teaser for the teaser trailer and a GIF revealing a scene from the upcoming video. Either this will be an actual teaser for the whole movie, or it will focus on one scene and not reveal too much from the overall plot. The footage that’s been released so far implies the latter, but it still looks pretty awesome.
“Catching Fire” brings back stars Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland and Willow Shields. It also has a whole new set of actors coming on board as well. As a quick recap, here’s everyone new who’s been cast in “Catching Fire” so far: Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, Jena Malone as Johanna Mason, Amanda Plummer as Wiress, Lynn Cohen as Mags, Meta Golding as Enobaria, Bruno Gunn as Brutus, Alan Ritchson as Gloss, Jeffrey Wright as Beetee and Patrick St. Esprit as Romulus Thread. The movie comes out on November 21.
Here’s the movie’s official synopsis:
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” 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.
