While the summer blockbuster season comes to a close in a few short weeks (thank God), for those who you like your popcorn coupled with CGI effects and action, don’t worry, as Hollywood will keep catering to you until the end of the year. While the past couple years saw the “Twilight” crowd dominate the fall frame with the vampire romance epics, with that series over, it’s time for a new YA title to carry torch. And that responsibility has fallen to Jennifer Lawrence and those in her district with the sequel, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
Perhaps you’re bummed about missing the presentation at Comic-Con today, but really, you mostly just missed standing in line to tiny celebrities far away on a stage giving boilerplate answers stock questions (unless Lawrence adorkably goes off the script). All you really need to do is skim below and watch the new trailer for ‘Catching Fire’ and if you’re a fan, wondering just how much more awesome than the first movie it’s going to be. If you’re not a fan, you might just be glad that Francis Lawrence uses a tripod.
Katniss and Peeta are back along with a few folks with names like Finnick and Plutarch and they will make that buttery goodness go down easy on November 22nd.
