'Catching Fire' trailer: A deep dive

Catching-Fire-11

Meanwhile, back in the monochromatic environs of District 12, Katniss hangs out with some old familiar faces. Surely you recall Gale, the rebellious young boy-of-the-forest? “People are looking at you, Katniss,” he tells his childhood friend. “You’ve given them an opportunity.” That Gale sure is charismatic. Shame that he’s so tragically ugly.Catching-Fire-12

Katniss’ younger sister Prim seems to have gotten the rebellious spirit, too. “You gave me a chance…to do something,” she tells Katniss. I can’t recall a scene like this occurring in the book. (Prim was always a background character, although she had a larger part in Mockingjay.) But this does cement one of the key themes of Catching Fire: The idea that Katniss has become a symbol for something, and the simultaneous fact that Katniss badly doesn’t want to be a symbol for anything.
