'Catching Fire' trailer: A deep dive

The-Hunger-Games-Catching-Fire.jpg

Based on the first trailer for Catching Fire, Lionsgate is following the same publicity roadmap they established with the first Hunger Games movie. The spot — which played during last night’s Movie Awards — focused almost exclusively on the early chapters of the book, with nary a single image of fancy jumpsuits and gorgeous tropical death arenas. But the trailer had plenty to chew on for fans, with a peek at a couple iconic scenes — and a couple decidedly-not-in-the-book scenes, too. Let’s dive in and take a look. (Note: I’ll avoid any major spoilers. But c’mon, kids, just read the book, it’s good for you.)

Catching-Fire-1

We begin with Peeta and Katniss on their Victory Tour, waving hello to the citizens of Panem. Peeta looks mildly disgusted, as usual. Katniss is rocking some dark this-time-it’s-personal sequel hair.Catching-Fire-2

Meanwhile, in a stately room in the Capitol, franchise baddie President Snow watches Katniss and mulls the new state of affairs. “She has become a beacon of hope for them,” he says. “She’s not who they think she is. She just wants to save her skin.”
