Photo: First look of Katniss and Finnick in "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" revealed
Entertainment Weekly has released exclusive photos of one of the most hotly anticipated sequels of 2013: “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” due in theaters Nov. 22.
The images include the the first look (posted above) of Sam Claflin (“Snow White and the Huntsman”) as fan favorite Finnick Odair trying to distract heroine Katniss Everdeen (played by Oscar-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence) during a training session.
Based on Suzanne Collins’ best-selling young-adult dystopian book series, “The Hunger Games” saga takes place in a bleak, not-too-distant future in which North American society has collapsed and been replaced by Panem, in which every year two teenagers from each of the country’s 12 districts are summoned to the corrupt Capitol to participate in the deadly Hunger Games, a spectacle televised throughout the land.
Finnick, who hails from the seaside District 4, won the Games about 10 years before the events of “Catching Fire,” the second book in the series, and is drawn back into the spectacle during the special 75th annual Hunger Games, also known as the Quarter Quell. His initial Hunger Games success has turned him into a Panem sex symbol, but Finnick goes through considerable growth over the course of the second book as well as in the third novel, “Mockingjay.”
