In the sequel to the box-office smash, based on the insanely popular series of young adult novels, a rebellion has begun all thanks to the previous winners Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson). It’s up to the heroic President Snow (Donald Sutherland) to extinguish such nonsense before it becomes a real problem. These latest images give us a look at all the key cast members, old and new. You may notice a slight age discrepancy in the contestants, as this time, previous winners are brought back for a new kind of tournament.
Francis Lawrence takes over directing duties, and must have made an impact as he will also take on the third and fourth installments of the franchise. Lawrence has built quite the filmography for himself, with successful films such as I AM LEGEND and WATER FOR ELEPHANTS. Hopefully each of these indicates he’ll be able to get the action and the human elements just right.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE is released 22nd November 2013. It stars Jennifer Lawrence, Donald Sutherland, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Jeffrey Wright, Amanda Plummer, Lenny Kravitz, Woody Harrelson, and Toby Jones.
