Entertainment Weekly has given us a little tease from 2013’s most anticipated movie, Catching Fire. Which is apparently even more anticipated than The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which kind of stuns me into silence. Just look at the hot while I mull this over.
For those who have been following this sequel to The Hunger Games, the cosplayers-nightmare wetsuits Katniss and Finnick are donning on this week’s EW cover come as no shock. …Wait. Katniss and Finnick? Damn right! Newcomer Sam Claflin will be opposite Jennifer Lawrence as aquahottie Finnick Odair from District Four, another handsome blonde threatening to get in between Katpiss/Peeniss. At least, on the surface. Want a sugar cube?
Not to fret. Katniss and her WonderBread Peeta will be thrown back into more horrible situations together during the Quarter Quell, a twenty five year occurrence that is basically just used as the Capitol’s excuse to chuck more people back into the arena. For the 75th edition, and thanks to the district wide rebellions in honor of Katniss, the theme of Catching Fire’s Quarter Quell is that tributes may only be pulled from the existing pool of victors. Basically, only tributes who have already come home as victors and were supposedly safe are eligible, which has Katniss and Peeta conveniently heading back into the arena. Because that is clearly not rigged. At all.
Think of it as Hunger Games: All-Stars!
Catching Fire will heat up theatres on November 22, 2013! May the odds be ever in your favor, tributes!
