Lionsgate unveiled a new trailer for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" at the San Diego Comic-Con, and has now released that same trailer online. Check it out below.
Plot: Katniss Everdeen returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with 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 - a competition that could change Panem forever.
The new movie is directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) and is set to hit theaters on November 22nd.

LOL Sorry man. I got nothing for you on Lawrence. I've said all I need to say. On the film though...God in heaven smite this piece of crap! Let's just take away from the fact the main hero is basically an emotionless character. Take away the fact that the story is known to rip off Battle Royale. I actually read this books and while the first one was good, the movie version fell flat.
Now Francis Lawrence is a decent director mind you. "Constantine" was a fine supernatural film. And "I Am Legend" was pretty well done minus the creatures designs (So tempted to say they should go Star Wars on it and fix that someday). But this series is basically just a big flip-off to human characters. Mostly everyone in this series has a blank look on their face. I can't believe I'm saying this but Liam Hemsworth has done one of the best jobs because he actually has a motivation. Katniss, as Donald Sutherland points out, is really just a selfish bitch. Ironic thing here folks? I like President Snow more than I do the main hero! Why? The guy actually has motivation to his character. Yeah he's the villain but see someone who stands for something you know where they stand. Makes it easier to enjoy their storyline.
It's seems fitting that critics like a movie that is basically a borefest like many of the films they rate...or anything a certain blonde dumbass is in (That one was for you Deaft0ne). The film's production design is fine for the most part although somethings look out of place. I mean the series attempts to have a realistic tone and then, suddenly, mutant dogs and hover crafts. Like did the writer just randomly throw this sh*t in or was there a point?!
All I can say is that I don't see this one being as successful as the first one, not even close. And if it is, big deal. Clearly these people have nothing better to do. Hopefully "Thor: The Dark World" will kick it's ass all over the pavement in November.

What kills me is they broke the 300or so page third one into two films! I mean what the hell?!

A sequel to "Constantine" is as likely as a "Hellboy 3". Why? Because no one likes uniqueness anymore. They just want something that makes them feel comfortable and doesn't make them think...what does that say about the world?!
Yeah making 2 movies out of Mockingjay is as stupid as trying to get water from a stone. Needless milking.

LOL Good line. Yeah it's ridiculous. There is no art in this film. I mean I have never seen such emotionless characters in a situation that calls for it. If you've read the books you know it ends practically flipping off the readers.
