In case you’ve been in hiding in a cabin in the mountains, you know that there have been films made based on Suzanne Collin’s The Hunger Games trilogy. Vanity Fair released new photos featuring stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Helmsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, and Sam Claflin, each dressed in attire from the second movie in the series, Catching Fire.
Can we talk about how great the cast looks in the promo photos? Especially Jennifer Lawrence in that elegant gown, which simultaneously reminds me of birds and butterflies—the exact same butterflies that manifest in my stomach when I see her.
I’m eagerly looking forward to the sequel, despite only having read up to Chapter 4 in the first book (my youngest brother berates me for not yet finishing the acclaimed trilogy, let alone the first book). If Catching Fire lives up to the first movie’s masterful handling of the world of Panem and its inhabitants, then the odds will certainly be in our favor.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is in theaters November 22.
Thanks to Vanity Fair.
