New Japanese Trailer & First Clip From ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’

Next month, fans of Suzanne Collins’ survivor series of novels will see the return of Jennifer Lawrence in her signature role of bow-carrying heroine Katniss Everdeen for big-screen blockbuster THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE. The District 12 tribute who, alongside Josh Hutcherson’s Peeta Mellark, will this time take to their Victory Tour of all the Capitol districts while the ruthless President Snow (Donald Sutherland) plots his devious revenge for not following his game rules in the first film.

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.

New footage can be spotted in this Japanese trailer, while we also have the first clip!

It co-stars Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Toby Jones, Woody Harrelson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amanda Plummer, Lynn Cohen, Patrick St. Esprit, Meta Golding, Bruno Gunn, Sam Claflin and Jeffrey Wright.

Craig is leading the charge as our north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
