Hunger Games Catching Fire

Just when she thought she was out …

The official trailer for the “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” was released at Comic-Con today and, judging by the footage, things aren’t looking so good for Jennifer Lawrence’s heroine, Katniss Everdeen.

Just as with the books, the film picks up after the last arena’s battle. Katniss and fellow winning tribute Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) have returned to their home in District 12 and she is trying to move forward in her dark, grim world. But things don’t stay safe for long. In the midst of a districts-wide revolution, Katniss and Peeta are thrown back into the arena for a sort-of tributes all-star edition.

Is this enough to make Katniss’s little sister Prim lose hope?

The first “Hunger Games” was a mega-hit for the business last year, with nearly $700 million in worldwide grosses.  “Catching Fire” opens November 22.
