WATCH: 'Catching Fire' Teaser Trailer Finds Katniss and Peeta New Victors in the Midst of District Revolution (VIDEO)

The first official teaser trailer for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” debuted Sunday night during the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, and features Katniss Everdeen (recent Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) being presented as the 74th Hunger Games victors, while violence, poverty and oppression still wrack the districts. A particular delight is the introduction of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character, head gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee, who schemes malevolently with Donald Sutherland’s President Snow to eliminate Katniss.

No glimpse yet of the next arena. The two-and-a-half minute teaser was introduced by star Liam Hemsworth.

“Catching Fire,” directed by Francis Lawrence, is slated for a November 2013 release.

The reason Jennifer Lawrence hasn't "missed a meal in a while" was because she didn't want young teenagers to think that they have to lose weight with her.


Well, good that means you losers won't be watching it and and there will be more seats for the people who do want to see it :-)


This teaser trailer for The Hunger Games is definitely going to make me check out the MTV Movie Awards, as if seeing Hemsworth wasn't reason enough to watch already. ;) But I just wish that the whole event took place at a different day or time, since I probably won't make it home from my office at DISH before it begins. At least I can always use that boring bus ride back to my house to start watching it all live with DISH Anywhere on my phone. This app can link my mobile devices up to my home DVR's TV content, so I can easily watch even this huge live event just like I was hanging out on my living room sofa.


It's PG 13, not PG. You haven't seen it to declare it's still soften the violence.

It's a film adaption. Film is a different medium, and elements of a book need to be adapted through a visual lens. You can never judge both film and book with the same criteria.
And the first film isn't overrated, it's perfectly rated.


Blah! The first film was so overrated even with a decent performance by JL. Terrible. Don't see a whole lot to look forward to. Bland support characters and violence softened to allow for and mislead PG audiences. Anything for a buck.
