5 Things We Learned From The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Teaser
Fans may be a bit disappointed by the limited scope of the trailer, which only shows us everything that happens up until Katniss and Peeta re-enter the arena (it's also up for debate whether the film is considering that reveal a spoiler, though given how much they're likely to promote the character of Finnick, I doubt it). But in this exceedingly well-cut and surprisingly emotional tease, I think there were 5 strong clues about what we can expect from the entirety of Catching Fire. Let's dig in
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Teaser: 'The Odds Are Never In Our Favor'
It's surprising how much emphasis in this goes to Donald Sutherland's President Snow, who's watching Katniss's victory tour and realizes that the glitz of the Capitol isn't able to overcome the simmering revolution that Katniss has accidentally started. The most shocking line in the trailer-- "Her species must be eradicated"-- doesn't appear in the book
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Tease Reveals The Victory Tour
What's kind of insane, though, is that in the 2 seconds she spends on screen, Jennifer Lawrence manages to tell us a whole lot about where we find her heroine Katniss at the beginning of the film. Fans of the book are well aware, of course, that Catching Fire finds Katniss and Peeta on their Victory Tour...
President Snow's Hunger Games: Catching Fire Portrait Is A Silent Menace
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire won't come to theaters until November 22, and sadly we have no idea if this series of portraits is leading up to a trailer premiere (my guess is we might have to wait until the MTV Movie Awards, on April 14, since you know those are common audiences
Peeta Reveals His Wedding Suit In New Hunger Games: Catching Fire Portrait
I'm not really sure how long they can keep up this pace of revealing two new "Capitol Couture" portraits every day, but us Hunger Games fans sure are enjoying it while it lasts. Capitol residents Effie Trinket, Caesar Flickerman and Cinna have shown off their finery, and Katniss has unveiled the wedding dress she wears to celebrate her fake wedding to Peeta
Jennifer Lawrence Stuns In A Wedding Dress In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Portrait
That Katniss Everdeen, always an iconoclast. While everyone else has been dutifully sitting in a chair for their official "Capitol Couture" portraits, when it came time for Katniss's turn, she chose to stand. Part of that's probably the necessity of the unbelievable dress she's wearing-- with that many ruffles and structural elements, there's pretty much no way she can move like a normal human. Check out Katniss's Couture portrait below
Effie Trinket Is Resplendent In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire's Capitol Couture
The heroine of the Hunger Games franchise, the inimitable Katniss Everdeen, is a girl who couldn't care less about makeup and jewels and clothes. She's forced to wear them, of course, in both The Hunger Games and especially Catching Fire, in which she and Peeta are sent on a victory tour to "celebrate" their wins in the Hunger Games
