The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

All right, unless some amazing picture comes out, this might be the last first look photo from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire that we feature before some sort of teaser trailer releases. The first round showed us our main character Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) in the earlier part of the sequel, plus Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) was introduced. Now another new cast member has been unveiled with the first photo of Philip Seymour Hoffman, making his first blockbuster since Mission: Impossible III, as new gamemaster Plutarch Heavensbee. There's also photos of the Everdeen family and Donald Sutherland as President Snow. Look!

Here are the new photos from Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire from EW:

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Plutarch and Haymitch

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Everdeen Family

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - President Snow

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). 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 (Donald Sutherland) prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games, a competition that could change Panem forever. Francis Lawrence directs the film written by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) and Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) and it arrives November 22nd, 2013. Excited?
