'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' clip shows Katniss tearful and scared

Catching-Fire.jpg

Being in a life-saving fake relationship so you aren’t executed for being disloyal to the Capitol has its downsides.

As part of yesterday’s ‘Global Fan Day’ Facebook released a new clip from the The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The 39-second segment shows a tearful Katniss scared about choices she’s made, and worrying about how best to keep both herself and Peeta alive post-Victory Tour.

“This trip doesn’t end when you get back home,” Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) says after she asks for guidance. “You never get off this train. You’re a mentor now. You two are mentors now. From now on, your job is to be a distraction so people forget what their real problems are.”

Chilling. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

First 'Catching Fire' clip shows Katniss and Gale's tense confrontation -- VIDEO

Katniss-Everdeen.jpg

Some Katnisses are born great, some Katnisses achieve greatness, and some Katnisses have greatness thrust upon them.

The heroine at the center of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire may seem to fall under the first category — but she sees herself as a member of the third. As the Girl on Fire tells her oldest friend Gale in this first uninterrupted clip from the film, she never intended to become a revolutionary leader. All Katniss Everdeen really wants is to ensure the safety of her family and loved ones.

Unfortunately, the restless, downtrodden citizens of Panem have other plans for her. And Gale is serving as their mouthpiece: “You haven’t hurt people, Katniss — you’ve given them an opportunity. They just have to be brave enough to take it.”

Catch the clip below, as presented by Liam Hemsworth on Tonight Tuesday. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire blazes into theaters Nov. 22.

Final 'Catching Fire' trailer debuts during World Series Game 4 -- VIDEO

catching-fire-trailer

“Would you like to be in a real war?” And baseball fans think the World Series are high stakes!

Lionsgate debuted the final trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire during Sunday night’s nail-biter Game 4 of the World Series matchup between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals. (A nice nod of the head to the fact that women watch sports and men will go see movies starring female heroes.)

It was a killer spot that teased more of the new treacherous arena of the all-star tribute games. Howler monkeys. Jabberjays. Jennifer Lawrence doing what she does best (when her face throbs with panic and she lets loose one of those raspy screams). Willow Shields’ Prim and Josh Hutcherson’s Peeta, and Donald Sutherland’s President Snow’s menacing voice of course, had nice moments. But the trailer rightfully belonged to Lawrence’s Katniss. Also, HOPE IS STRONGER THAN FEAR.

'Game of Thrones' star Natalie Dormer cast as Cressida in 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay'

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire doesn’t even hit theaters until Nov. 22, and we’re already looking past it to the final two movies of the franchise … but in a good way.

Natalie Dormer has officially signed on to play the role of Cressida in both The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and Part 2. Book fans will remember Cressida as the film director who, along with Castor, Pollux, and Messalla, flees The Capitol to join the rebellion and ends up taking her camera crew on a journey to follow Katniss and get footage of the uprising.

Although we’re sure she will be less recognizable once she inhabits Cressida’s bald head and many tattoos, Dormer can currently be recognized as Margaery Tyrell from Game of Thrones. She will also appear in the upcoming film Rush.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2 will be directed by Francis Lawrence and have release dates of Nov. 21, 2014, and Nov. 20, 2015, respectively.

'Catching Fire' to premiere in London

In 100 days, the box-office will catch fire with the second Hunger Games movie opening around the world on Nov. 22. But the spark for Catching Fire will begin Nov. 11 when the sequel to the 2012 blockbuster has its world premiere in London — forevermore known as The Capitol.

In the next chapter of Suzanne Collins’ epic adventure, Katniss and Peeta embark on a victory tour of Panem’s districts after winning the Hunger Games. They quickly learn that their achievement and, in particular, what Katniss has come to represent, is now viewed as a threat by the oppressive regime run by President Snow. Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katniss, along with Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland.

Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) is in the director’s chair, taking the reins from Gary Ross.

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire': Peeta can swim, and other changes from the book

First off, let Catching Fire director Frances Lawrence assure the ardent fans of Suzanne Collins Hunger Games series that their sacred text will always be honored: “The movie is very, very true to the book,” he says. But when he first met Collins last spring, the two hunkered down and hammered out a new beat sheet for the sequel. And together they were merciless about what wouldn’t serve the screenplay adaptation. Here’s three changes readers should expect in the film (in theaters November 22): READ FULL STORY

Finnick! Shirtless! In new 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' photo!

Well, Hunger Games fans, does he look how you dreamed he’d look?

It’s a great week for intel about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Right after Lionsgate premiered a new Hunger Games trailer at Comic-Con, they’ve gone and released a new photo of a shirtless Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin), who’ll make his debut in the second installment of the franchise. The photo above comes straight from a scene in the book, when Katniss recounts first meeting Finnick: “He offered me a sugar cube and asked to know all my secrets.”

Now that fans are likely back in full countdown mode (Catching Fire opens November 22), go ahead and re-watch the new trailer, which premiered over the weekend:
