With more Academy Award/Golden Globe wins/nominations than you can poke at bloodied arrow at, the cast of Hunger Games: Catching Fire are set to lend further thespian weight to the second installment of the popular teen franchise. For those unfamiliar with the story arc, Catching Fire sees Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson’s Peeta Mellark on their authority snubbing post-Hunger Games victory tour.
Having embarrassed the fancy pants controllers of the Capitol, Donald Sutherland’s President Snow bemoans the fact that Everdeen has given the drably dressed commoners a senses of hope. Que devious plans, maniacal laughter, a booming revolution worthy score, and Jennifer Lawrence paraphrasing Dirty Harry. Keep an eye out for Stanley Tucci, ramping it all the way up to ham on cold-cuts acting scale. Brilliant.
Also staring Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Lenny Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, Elizabeth Banks, Jena Malone and Sam Claflin, Hunger Games: Catching Fire will hit theaters November 22.
