Was it worth the wait? Watch and decide for yourself below. READ FULL STORY
Catching Fire‘s teaser trailer will premiere Sunday night during the MTV Movie Awards, and until then, we’ll have to content ourselves with a pair of new images from the Hunger Games sequel. The first shows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and her angelic sister Prim (Willow Shields) sharing a tender moment, while the second shows Katniss contemplating her mortality. Or something. Both have been posted on Lionsgate’s Hunger Games Explorer site, which will host the teaser after it airs at 9 p.m. Sunday — and is set to release two new new photos before the trailer hits the Interwebs.
Yes, the following clip is a teaser for a teaser for a trailer of a movie. But! It does contain approximately 10 seconds of footage from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the highly-anticipated sequel to last year’s kids-killing-kids blockbuster. Star Liam Hemsworth will introduce the full teaser Sunday, April 14 when it premieres during the MTV Movie Awards at 9 p.m. ET. The teaser will then be available at thehungergamesexplorer.com, a site that, despite appearances, is not titled The Hunger Game Sexplorer.
