Final Trailer For The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
'Would you like to be in a real war?'

28 October 2013  |  Written by James White

The film itself is now less than a month from release, so here comes what is being touted as the final big push in the marketing campaign for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: the latest trailer.

This time, the story kicks off shortly after Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) have “won” – or more accurately, survived – the brutal Hunger Games imposed by the Capitol on the rest of the districts.

Katniss has returned home safe after the 74th Annual Games, along with Peeta. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow (Donald Sutherland) prepares the 75th Annual Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever. Peeta and Katniss will be forced back into the Arena for a challenge that sees them going up against other previous winners…

With Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Sam Claflin, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Jena Malone, Willow Shields and Philip Seymour Hoffman among the cast, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is out on November 21.

As a reminder, you only have a few days left to find the current issue of Empire in shops, which features more on the film, though it will still be available on the iPad and Android versions.

Looks awesome!
As a massive fan of the books, the first one was a bit of a disappointment. The trailer for "Catching Fire" actually has me more excited than, what I personally thought, was the weakest book of the series. The special effects look awesome. The arena and its "inhabitants" look true to the novel. Bring it on! More

Looks even better
You can tell that the budget has boosted the quality of the effects since the first film. For anyone who hasn't read the books I'd say skip this trailer because it shows footage from the games unlike previous trailers. Looks bloody epic though! More

May the odds be ever in your favour...
I am so excited to see this; I went to the first one not knowing much about it and absolutely loved it (as I have every time I've watched it since) so went on to read all the books which, although are probably aimed at people a fair bit younger than me, are fantastic & incredibly gripping. Having read Catching Fire I think this may very well be even better than the first film, especially as Jennifer Lawrence is the perfect Katniss to carry this franchise from strength to strength.

Stick to this
Have to say, the first film was good but not fully memorable, the campaign for this for me has been a little dry and didn't fill me with excitement but this is a good trailer. The sort of trailer we need and had in times past. Too many trailers give too much away but this makes the film seem really strong. If this was all I'd seen then I'd have bought my ticket. As it's not I'm not sure I will. More
