We’ve seen all sorts of behind the scenes, lakeside shenanigans for the eagerly anticipated sequel to the Box Office busting The Hunger Games, but now thanks to EW we can finally get our first official look at the principal cast of director Francis Lawrence’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
And yes, one of them has a really big trident.
For those of you taking notes (there may be a pop quiz later), that’s Sam Clafin with the trident as Finnick O’Dair, standing next to our bow and arrow shooting heroine, Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, both dressed in this season’s latest fashion to battle other teenagers to the death in.
You can also see her dressed more comfortably alongside one third of her love triangle, Peeta, played by Josh Hutcherson, as well as a look at the other third, Gale, played by Liam Hemsworth, who apparently is not too happy about the whole situation.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute 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 (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
