So tonight at the MTV Movie Awards, we’ll finally get our glimpse at the first trailer for the second installment in Suzanne Collin’s Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire.
I’m not a huge fan of the MTV Movie Awards, I watched them pretty religiously when I was a teenager but now, not so much but I will sit through the entire show just to see the trailer for Catching Fire. And also to see if they show anything City of Bones because I’m a crazy person like that.
But to keep us nice and excited til the release of the new trailer, I’ve brought to you five new stills that have been released in the last couple of days.
Warning: if you have NOT read the book, there will be spoilers ahead.
Is it wrong that I’m happy they are keeping Gale’s whipping scene in? Its just SUCH a huge moment for him, and for Katniss, and for the way she feels about Panem and the government.
Now, Hypable claims this is a still from the Victory Tour, but it looks more like pictures from the Tribute Parade for the 75th annual Hunger Games, since (those of you who have read the book know) Katniss and Peeta go into the Hunger Games once more.
President Snow and Plutarch Heavensbee. Plutarch is the new Gamemaker, the head of the Hunger Games, after Seneca Crane’s alluded demise in the first movie.
Not sure what’s happening here, or what just happened but Katniss goes through a LOT in this book between the Victory Tour, her engagement to Peeta, Gale’s whipping, going back into the games a second time, so much so there could be anything that could make her look this upset.
You can tell Prim is growing up. Obviously this is a moment between the sisters, an upset moment. Maybe after Gale’s whipping, maybe Katniss has just found out she’s going back in…but look at Prim’s reaction…she’s not a little girl anymore, she’s grown up.
I’m pretty excited about all the stills so far, and I’m excited to watch the trailer tonight.
Let me know what you think of the stills! I’ll post the trailer as soon as its posted online :)
