Tag: blinkboxblinkbox @ 1:49 pm

With the dozens of film franchises and TV programmes hosting panels and showing off new footage at the San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, it’s easy to let something big slip by. Prime example: this full trailer for the upcoming Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire.

That’s right, it’s a teen-oriented action film starring the current winner of the Best Actress Oscar! Set one year after the events of the first film, it sees Jennifer Lawrence‘s character being thrown back into another Hunger Games as punishment for her actions in the first film. The rub, as they say, is that she’ll be facing off against previous winners of the game: all of whom are deadlier than anyone she’s ever faced before.

The trailer also shows a brief glimpse of the man who’s already generating more buzz than anyone else in this sequel: teen crush Philip Seymour Hoffman, who plays some stud named ‘Plutarch Heavensbee’.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due to set cinemas alight this autumn, 22 November
