First Hunger Games: Catching Fire Image Has Katniss And Finnick Armed And Ready

If you're not a Hunger Games fanatic you may be a little confused by the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly, which has Jennifer Lawrence back in character as Katniss, and a blond handsome guy standing behind her. You might initially assume that's Peeta with her, but wait! There's a new blond dreamboat on the scene in Catching Fire, played by Sam Claflin, and he's got the honor of joining Lawrence on the EW cover that gives us our first look at the hugely anticipated film. Take a look below.

If you caught the set photos snapped when the Catching Fire production briefly moved to Hawaii, those wetsuits may look familiar. Even though Katniss and Peeta already survived one Hunger Games in the first movie, they're brought back into the arena in Catching Fire as part of the Quarter Quell, in which the Games are made up entirely of former tributes. Finnick is a former Games winner as well, and though with his good looks you might expect a love triangle to emerge, there's a much more interesting conflict between him, Katniss and Peeta as all three try to survive the new Games.

The Hunger Games: Catching FIre comes to theaters November 22 this year, and you can learn everything else you need to know about it here.
