The official teaser has been released for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. This may be a “teaser”, but it’s more like an all out trailer with so much being shown. If the first film is anything to go by then fans of the franchise are going to be hitting the theaters in droves to see the second chapter of Katniss Everdeen’s story. Oh, and the appearance of Phillip Seymour Hoffman certainly adds value to the proceedings.
Katniss and Peeta are dethroned from their respective victory riches and are put back into the arena for the most climatic and menacing of the Hunger Games, known as the Quarter Quell.
The giant cast consists of the following: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones and Willow Shields. The new additions include Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Lynn Cohen, Meta Golding, Amanda Plummer and Jeffrey Wright.
