Second Official CATCHING FIRE Clip Shows Effie’s Excitement


This new The Hunger Games: Catching Fire clip shows the two victors, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), as they approach the Presidential Palace.  Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), as their escort, gives them a few pointers through her excitement, and you can’t help but chuckle a little bit.

Stills of Gale, Finnick, Peeta, Effie, & Katniss from Vanity Fair’s October Issue

The October 2013 issue of Vanity Fair feature’s a Catching Fire spread, which contains an editorial piece and stills of Gale, Finnick, Peeta, Effie, and Katniss which look to be from the Capitol Portraits shoot.  Keeping with what we’ve seen so far from Catching Fire, all of the facial expressions are so very serious–and rightly so. With the film’s release quickly approaching, I think it’s safe to say we’ll be seeing a lot more of these guys featured in magazines!

MTV’s Five Key Scenes From the Catching Fire Trailer

The folks at MTV, much like us, have watched the Catching Fire trailer over, and over, and over again! From the multiple viewings, they have selected five scenes to examine closer–a top five, so to speak.

Screen Shot 2013-07-20 at 5.20.41 PM

Meet Finnick Odair
The first footage of Katniss’ biggest ally in the Quarter Quell arena was probably the most anticipated reveal. Unfortunately, all we saw was Finnick’s sly smile before the tribute parade. Fortunately, he was shirtless. Now that we’ve seen Sam Claflin’s toned torso, will the fervor that he’s not beefy or hot enough die down? Dude is strikingly attractive and physically imposing. What more do you want? We also saw several more returning tributes, whom Haymitch reminds Katniss are “experienced killers” and not just scared teenagers. That Katniss has some stiff competition is especially evident in the montage of the tributes all training in their high-tech facility.

Effie Trinket Empathizes
For the most part, the other Capitol residents don’t notice or care about what’s going on in the country around them. They’re blissfully unaware of President Snow’s political machinations surrounding the Games — and his quest to quiet the rebellion brewing underneath their noses. District 12 liaison Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) has clearly grown fond of the young competitors she ushered through the process the year before, and her worried, emotional look to Katniss when she realizes her victor will have to face death once again is telling: the Capitol employees tasked with carrying out Snow’s wishes can’t ignore what’s going on, and soon the rest of the idyllic city will realize the threat to their cushy way of life.

New Catching Fire Still Unveiled, Comic-Con Panel Announced

Since it’s the week Comic-Con begins, and just five days before the full-length The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer is released, we hoped we’d get some Catching Fire goodies–and we did!  Yahoo! Movies revealed this AMAZING new still of Peeta, Effie, and Katniss at what looks to be the reaping.  Like the other stills we’ve seen so far, there are very serious expressions on the faces of our characters–which is so fitting.  Personally, I especially appreciate Effie’s concerned look as it’s not what we normally get from her.  In addition, as many eagle-eyed fans have noticed, if you turn your attention to Peeta’s boots it looks like his shoelaces are double-knotted (just like he always does, according to Katniss)! 

Katniss Effie Peeta New Still

In other news, the Comic-Con panel was announced.  Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, and director Francis Lawrence will be in attendance.  And as previously reported the first full-length trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will debut at this time, 1:35 PT to be exact, and if you’re not going to be at SDCC, don’t worry!  Immediately after it is shown, it will be available on Yahoo! Movies so you won’t have to wait very long at all!
