Getting Pumped for Catching Fire

If you haven’t already seen the new trailer for Catching Fire that was released at SDCC last week, than you really, really need to. It’s pretty incredible (even better than the teaser that premiered at MTV Movie Awards) and it’s got me more excited than ever for the movie.

Here are a few squee inducing moments from the trailer:

  • The portrayal of the uprisings throughout the districts (mockingjay symbols, spray paint on the trains, burning the Capitol flag, etc.) It all looks so well executed.
  • The other victors. I’m so looking forward to seeing Jena Malone as Johanna. I think I’m more excited about seeing her character brought to life than Finnick’s, which is weird considering he was my favorite from the books.
  • Her dress, you guys! I can’t even…
  • The look on Katniss’ face when she enters the arena – because we all know (assuming you’ve read the books) why she looks near hysterics. Not that I’m looking forward to seeing that happen, Jennifer Lawrence’s acting is just fantastic.
  • Then, to top it all off, there's the music sending chills all up your arms (or maybe that’s just me…)

It looks like this film is going to be just as well done, if not better, than the first. November 22 cannot come fast enough.

Oh! And in case you’ve missed out on some of the other CF goodies that have been released over the past few weeks, here are a few posters of the victors (the full set can be seen here).

Just in case you weren't lucky enough to make it to SDCC you can watch the full Comic Con Panel for Catching Fire online. I haven’t watched the whole thing yet, but I’m sure it’s fantastic.


  1. I got chills watching the trailer - the Mockingjay dress looks so amazing!

    Definitely got chills. OMG. CAN'T WAIT!!!
