Entertainment Weekly just released a trio of new images for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.  Directed by Francis Lawrence, the film centers on President Snow (Donald Sutherland) trying to crush a budding rebellion that was ignited by Katniss’ (Jennifer Lawrence) actions in the previous film, as the 75th Hunger Games (aka Quarter Quell) finds past victors competing against each other.  One of these new images gives us our first good look at Jena Malone as fan favorite Johanna, while the other two focus on Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss in precarious situations.  The marketing campaign for Catching Fire has been going on for so long that I almost forgot the film opens next month, but I’m eager to see what Francis Lawrence brings to the material.

The film also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stanley Tucci, Jeffrey Wright, and Amanda Plummer.  The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens November 22nd in traditional theaters and IMAX.

Official synopsis for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire;

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
