Empire's Hunger Games: Catching Fire Cover Arrives
Jennifer Lawrence kicks off our huge winter preview

Katniss Everdeen is back on her Capitol award tour in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. She's heading for the arena, but not before a very glamorous pit stop on the front cover of Empire's November issue.


On newstand, Jennifer Lawrence's heroine shares top billing with characters huge, and in Bilbo's case, not so huge in stature. Subscribers, meanwhile, will find Katniss standing alone, having vanquished all her fellow cover stars in a battle royale in which even the cunning Admiral Ackbar stood little chance.

Inside the issue lies a stack of juicy exclusives. Hunger Games aficionados will find all the Katniss insights they could wish for, with our reporter, Ollybush Ricardsby, dispatched to find Lawrence and interview the heck out of her about Hunger Games 2, her rise to fame and meeting Tyrion Lannister. There's also access-all-areas exclusives from Gravity, The Counsellor, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug and 47 Ronin, not to mention Ackbar's moment in the sun in a huge celebration of Return Of The Jedi to mark its 30th birthday.

This month's Empire debuts in all good and some mediocre newsagents across Britain and the 12 Districts on Thursday, September 26. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire lands in cinemas on November 21, two weeks after its fellow cover feature, Gravity. For more on the film while you wait, check out its widescreen character banner here and its trailer below.

At least it's better than having almost constant superheroes on the covers. But looking at the archive it's mostly just the biggest and widely anticipated films of the year and the cover stars. And, err, Megan Fox. More
