If filming a highly-anticipated sequel in a public area, expect the paparazzi to converge on the scene.
That’s what The Hunger Games: Catching Fire cast and crew were dealing with in the Aloha State on Monday, and we’ve got the amazing photos to prove it.
UPDATE: Hit the bottom of this post to enjoy four photos featuring Josh Hutcherson working with Sam Claflin!
Earlier today we shared low-res photos of Jennifer Lawrence filming Quarter Quell scenes on a beach in Hawaii, and now the paparazzi versions of these pics are here with some wonderful looks at Lawrence’s Katniss and our first look at Sam Claflin as Finnick! We also see Lynn Cohen who plays Mags.
Enjoy the photos in their high-res glory below. Though photos of Claflin on set in Atlanta surfaced a couple months ago, this is really our first look at him in full costume. What do you think of the arena outfits and, most importantly, Finnick’s hair?
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens in theaters November 22, 2013. Filming will continue in Hawaii through the end of December. If today’s photos are any indication, we may see endless paparazzi photos from the set surface over the next few weeks. See the official animated logo which was unveiled last week in theaters.
Francis Lawrence is helming this story and recently signed on for Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2. He replaced The Hunger Games director Gary Ross who was very serious about taking on Catching Fire until he didn’t like the limited amount of time he had to shoot the movie. Catching Fire will be scored by James Newton Howard.
