The second trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire debuted at San Diego Comic-Con this afternoon after being introduced by stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth.

After no sign of the Quarter Quell tributes in the first Catching Fire trailer which premiered in April, the theatrical Comic-Con trailer is chock full of first looks at several key players including Finnick (played by Sam Claflin), Johanna (Jena Malone), Gloss (Alan Ritchson), and Mags (Lynn Cohen).

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the highly-anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games which debuted back in March 2012. It’s been a long wait for Hunger Games fans since the last movie, but the good news is that Catching Fire, Mockingjay – Part 1, and Mockingjay – Part 2 are all spaced exactly one year apart. Each movie hits theaters in November 2013, 2014, and 2015 respectively.

Catching Fire co-stars Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman, Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, Donald Sutherland as President Snow, Toby Jones as Claudius Templesmith, Lenny Kravitz as Cinna, Bruno Gunn as Brutus, Jeffrey Wright as Beetee, and Amanda Plummer as Wiress.

Hypable will be closely following the highly-anticipated sequel as we approach its November release. The studio is partnering with many companies to promote the film including Subway restaurants where a special campaign will kick off later this year.

    • Plat

      Took the words right out of my mouth.

    • Gary65

      I never truly understood the meaning of raping the replay button until this moment :’)

  • Larael

    Wow, wow, wow. The dress looks amazing! Everything looks amazing!

  • Lucy Hopko

    No wordss

  • Kira Bonnice

    Wow. I wasn’t really feeling it at first, just the same old same old. It hit me though, seeing her become a mockingjay, and her face after she came up to the arena. Knowing what she witnessed, sobbing.

  • Lorena


    Ahem, I mean, it looks like a very well crafted portrayal of the second part of a trilogy. The costume and make-up department should be very proud, as well as the special effects department. It looks as if it will be a most engaging film.

  • Zack


  • xiku

    Wow! I think this one was better than the first! Hope they use this as the theatrical trailer….

  • The Hunger Games Is Amazing

    YES!!! Amazing! To the actors and Suzanne Collins: PLEASE come to Belgium!!! Yes, we’re a small country, but you have SO many fans here!!! We love you!

  • Septima

    PERFECTION. Absolute perfectionnn!!! Dying, crying.. in awe.. That was probably the most amazing trailer I’ve ever seen, literally. The visuals are flawless, beautiful. These visuals surpass all expectations. This is stunning. I’m shocked, amazed, I can’t shut up. SOO excited for this movie <333333333333333333 Everything is awesome

  • Liderc

    Looks a lot better than the first one.

  • Merina

    Ok this looks amazing I’m actually really crazily excited wow eek ahhhhhhhhhh :D


    • Amanda Cora

      However, it looks much much better there than it did in HG.

  • http://twitter.com/eiVega eiVega

    Wow. So flipping good. I think I can forgive them for spoiling the plot twist because that was so well done. They even showed the Wedding dress-Mocking jay transformation! Surprised how emotional the characters were. Even Effie was sad! Well done! :)

  • Olivia

    Who else saw Effie’s face when she was choosing Katniss?

    • normalizboring

      Heartbreaking…… this movie is gonna be so good

    • awkwardjenny

      Maybe they’ll say her name in this one ;)

    • TheFirst

      I was just going to comment on that! It was so sad and it shows that Effie really does care about Katniss and Peeta :(

    • Kacey Horn

      Yeahh, I don’t really think Effie should look so surprised, considering Katniss is the only surviving female tribute from District 12 and she’s obviously the one who’s going to get picked.

  • Kevin Seurs

    I started crying when I saw Effie’s sad face during the reaping scene! And Jennifer’s face when she sees the arena, marvelous!

  • Laura Jurgensmeyer

    It looks AMAZING! I just kind of wish they hadn’t spoiled the 75th games. Oh well. I can’t wait!

  • Kevin Landeen

    Looks PERFECT! the mockingjay dress . . . Exactly how I pictured it! It looks absolutely perfect! November is too far away . . .

  • Kevin Landeen

    I am just too excited!

  • Riana-Tiana Menezes

    No they showed the dress! They are not supposed to show the dress!!!! >.<

    • Kalani Odum

      Thank god because that’s my cosplay for the premier lol

  • Sophia

    The only thing that would have made this better would have been to hear Finnick speak. JUST. ONE. DAMN. LINE.

    • Kaylee

      want a sugar cube?

  • Jackie

    So glad to see all of the tributes on the stage together for the interviews. I’m really hoping this means they will keep in the part where they all take each others’ hands. I think that would be an incredibly emotional moment.

  • Maria Wang

    that was AWESOME!!!

  • Kevin Seurs

    Did anyone else notice that the aspect ratio changes to the IMAX format when she enters the arena? I’m starting to think (or hope rather) that these rumours, that everything in the arena will be IMAX, are true!

    • Me

      Holy crap!

    • Gavin Walsh

      this doesnt help when not all cinemas are imax

      • Kevin Seurs

        Normal theatres will probably just continue showing the film in 21:9, as was the case with the Batman films. You won’t notice any difference.

    • Michael

      I love how the aspect ratio changes (like the way Oz: the Great and Powerful did, just horizontal) SO EXCITED!!

    • Riana-Tiana Menezes

      Rumors? I thought it was confirmed that Francis Lawrence shot all of the Arena scenes with IMAX cameras. I think Hypable also posted a story about it. ^_-

      • Kevin Seurs

        I only heard about it on the Catching Fire wikipedia page, which states that Josh Hutcherson said he believed all of the arena will be IMAX. I guess it’s very likely, but not confirmed just yet.

  • Jill

    I love it but it was borderline spoilerish. Revealed a bit too much.

    • http://twitter.com/eiVega eiVega

      Borderline? It revealed the Quarter Quell plot twist!!

      • potterjay

        I guess most people will know that from the books though- I know so many people who enjoyed the first film so went out and read all of the books.

        At least they didn’t reveal the MAJOR plot twist at the end (no spoilers here) :P

        • normalizboring

          I agree, it was sort of needed. A lot of casual movie goers won’t be too interested without the promise of more action.

      • Riana-Tiana Menezes

        and her dress!

        • blujai

          I know someone who didn’t read the books and she already figured out that Katniss and Peeta were going to have to go back in the games.

        • Dlmarvin05

          I LOVED THAT DRESS, the black one right?? And Snow’s face afterwords! Oh my words, too much, amazing!

      • Jill

        That and the dress. I love the dress but I wish they saved the reveal for the movie. It’s such an important moment.

        • Riana-Tiana Menezes

          Exactly! I was so bummed when I saw it in there because I had this great big fantasy of seeing this very scene on the big screen and witnessing the “EPIC” transformation of the Mockingjay, and then seeing how everybody reacts to it, but no. I watched it on my tiny little laptop screen instead. :(

  • Ev42

    I got chills. Hoooooly shit, it looks amazing.

  • Natalie Risk
    • Kevin Ryan

      Haha, that’s hilraous!

  • dillonmays

    OMG THIS IS AMAZING. It reminds me of the feels I got for the very first Hunger Games Trailer.

  • normalizboring

    I think my dogs think I’m insane, they all came to check if I was ok, as I was screaming and and crying on the floor………..hmmm, I might have a problem.

  • Lauren D

    her face at the end…

  • Peggy Ruiz

    Ican’t get it to play. argh

  • Luke

    DEAD. Just… dead. Oh. My. God. What. Is. This. Life.

  • Grace Chen

    looks fantastic! I’m very excited and have very high expectations :D

  • Gavin Walsh

    my god,, i can’t even .. its going to be amazing

  • David W

    OMG Looks incredible!!!

  • ladybirds


  • 7Starrchasers

    This trailer actually brought me to tears….OH….MY…GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Echoreyn

    Ah, it seems my forehead has made yet another appearance in this trailer! Here’s hoping it doesn’t choose to detach itself and move to Hollywood, inflated by the fact that it has become vastly more famous than the rest of my body.

    • Riana-Tiana Menezes

      Which part of the trailer are you–I mean your ‘forehead’ in? Did you get to meet any of the cast by any chance? :)

  • Michael

    OMG THIS TRAILER WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! IM SO EXCITED FOR THIS!! everything for this movie just looks and feels bigger then the first one. It looks incredible! As mentioned before, the aspect ratio changes into the IMAX format when she enters the arena in a very cool way. I JUST CANT WAIT FOR NOVEMBER!!

  • Taylore

    New Catching Fire trailer premieres…. everyone goes GIF crazy!!!

  • bernardo


  • Jonathan kunitsky

    This is definitely going to be 50X better than the first movie and more visually entertaining. I Literally CANNOT wait for this movie to come out. It is going to be amazing. The trailer gave me chills. Amazing.

  • shikharsingh596

    I started crying when I saw Effie’s sad face during the reaping scene! And Jennifer’s face when she sees the arena, marvelous!Read more……

  • Dlmarvin05

    I love all the gifs that have been used. They pretty much sum up my reactions x)

  • Tracy

    I had my doubts at first as Catching Fire wasn’t a strong book in my opinion but this movie could possibly be better than the book.

  • StormDancer

    Really impressed. Really, REALLY impressed. There was nothing that annoyed me–a new record. I can’t wait for this movie.

  • I

    Is the video not loading for other people? I can’t get it to load anywhere and it’s endlessly frustrating.

  • Liliana Sa

    Holy shit on a stck!!!!!!!!!! That was INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!

  • Sophie

    This is just amazing! I can’t wait! <33

  • ZofTheTwiHard

    I’m not a mad Tribute, but this is looking amazing!

  • Kallah Jean Turner

    For the people that this didn’t load for: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySWB-qzUBY0

  • http://ravenclaw1991.tumblr.com/ ravenclaw1991

    It took me a moment to remember why Katniss was so upset and crying when she arrived in the arena. Because of Cinna. :(

  • Caroline J.

    that was f***ing awesome!!! looks SO GOOD!! marvelous visuals!

  • Crazy-Eight23

    Looks awesome! I want to see the reactions of the old cast because they’re just as big of fans as we are. This trailer is impressive, and November can’t come soon enough!

  • Elliot Burford

    Oh my god I just realised the Katniss is crying when she comes up into the arena. And I just remembered why.. OH GOD THIS IS GONNA BE TOUGH

  • Jill

    Made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Now, I also want to watch the Hunger Games.

  • Janine

    Can we just give it up to Stanley Tucci… Love himmm

  • Amalia

    Oh my goodness. This is so beautiful, gave me the shivers. Prim shouting for Katniss was heartbreaking. And I never thought they could get the Mockingjay dress that perfect.

  • GoodFinder

    I LOVE Effie’s expression at the reaping.

  • truehungergamesfan101

    I can’t wait to see this film but can’t believe they’re splitting mockingjay into 2 parts!!! :’)

  • Oh My Rowling!

    i love how the comments are gifs and people saying they want more finnick lol

  • Oh My Rowling!


  • Uddhriti Bhowmick
