The new trailer for 'Catching Fire' shows the aftermath of the Hunger Games as protagonist Katniss becomes a symbol of rebellion.
The trailer for the “Hunger Games” sequel, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” shows the world of heroine Katniss Everdeen in increasing turmoil after her victory in the deadly competition called the Hunger Games.
(Warning: spoilers for “The Hunger Games” follow…)
The end of the first movie in the "Hunger Game" series, based on the bestselling novels by Suzanne Collins, finds Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence) and her neighbor (and love interest) Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) dual victors of the Games. But a joint victory is technically forbidden by the government, so Katniss and Peeta are urged to fight each other to the death. The two insist, however, that they will instead kill themselves and leave the government without a victor.
This defiance means President Snow (Donald Sutherland) is now wary of the power Katniss holds over the people – well aware that she has become a symbol of rebellion.
The trailer opens with Katniss and Peeta being showed off throughout the nation of Panem as the Games victors. Over the triumphant scene, the president says that Katniss has “become a beacon of hope” for the people and that “she has to be eliminated.”
