The Girl on Fire is baaack! Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire, the sequel of The Hunger Games. This book series is one of my favourites, and I really liked how they adapted the first book into a film; however, the directors have changed this time around. Gary Ross directed the first one and Francis Lawrence is directing this one, but considering Lawrence is a competent filmmaker (I Am Legend, Water for Elephants), I’m pinning hopes on this too. Check out the trailer and let us know if you think it’ll live up to the first film!
The trailer focuses a lot more on the drama unfolding around Panem, and less on their time spent in the arena – which is what a major portion of the book did as well. But I like that they’ve not shown us too much about what’s happening in the arena; that’s something I’d really like to see for the first time on the big screen. What do you think of the trailer? The film releases on November 22nd!
