Catching Fire first teaser trailer, watch below. The first teaser trailer for Catching Fire premiered at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards. The clip was introduced by the film’s star, Liam Hemsworth. Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games, hits theaters on November 22.


The teaser showed Hunger Games victors Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark embarking on their victory tour. But their defiance of the Capitol did not go unnoticed by Panem’s citizens — or its ruler. “She has become a beacon of home for them,” the totalitarian President Snow (Donald Sutherland) says of Katniss. “She has to be eliminated.”

“I think she should die but in the right way, at the right time,” replies Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman), the new Head Gamemaker in charge of designing the fight-to-the-death Hunger Games. “Katniss Everdeen is a symbol. You don’t have to destroy her, just her image. Show her that she is one of us now. Let them rally behind that. They’re going to hate her so much they might just kill her for you.”

Lawrence’s heroine is also seen having a heart-to-heart with her sister, Prim, and staring down a gun pointed at her by a Peacekeeper.
