Lionsgate has debuted the final trailer for the upcoming film, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The film will see the return of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen along with Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones and Willow Shields also reprising their roles.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the second installment in The Hunger Games trilogy. The film picks up where The Hunger Games left off as Katniss and Peeta have returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games. 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.

The new trailer debuted during the fifth inning of Game 4 of the World Series on Fox. It contains very little dialogue but does feature President Snow, played by Donald Sutherland, in voice-over, saying: “Miss Everdeen, you fought very hard in the arena. But they were games. Would you like to be in a real war?” The clip then cuts to him watching Katniss, played by JenniferLawrence, on a TV screen as she wields her bow and arrow in the Hunger Games arena.

The trailer also includes a glimpse at Katniss’ and Peeta’s (Josh Hutcherson) fiery costumes as well as some intense action inside the arena.

Francis Lawrence is set to direct a screenplay from Simon Beaufoy and Michael Arndt.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters Nov. 22. Watch the final trailer below:
