“Entertainment Weekly” must have worked out a good deal with “The Hunger Games” franchise. As I recall, they were the first to reveal what Katniss would look like when they ran a cover of the first movie.
Now they’ve got the scoop — and cover image — for the second movie, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
Jennifer Lawrence back as Katniss Everdeen, complete with arrows strapped to her back. The blond guy standing behind her is Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick Odair. His weapon of choice is a trident and hand-woven net.
Those wetsuits look familiar, don’t they? That’s because we saw them in the set photos snapped while filming in Hawaii. Katniss and Peeta — the baker boy — survived one Hunger Games in the first movie. In “Catching Fire,” they’re back in the arena as part of the Quarter Quell, in which the Games are made up entirely of former tributes, including Finnick.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” hits theaters Nov. 22, 2013.
