The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is still 11 months away, but there’s not a moment to lose when it comes to the marketing. The cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly features Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin as Katniss and Finnick. We’ve seen the new bodysuit uniforms in leaked set photos, and they look good in this official image. As for Claflin, I can definitely see him as Finnick now that they’ve dyed the actor’s hair blonde. As for his performance, we’ll have to wait and see.
Hit the jump to check out the full cover and the first image from the film. The film also stars Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, Liam Hemsworth, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jena Malone, Sam Claflin, Jeffrey Wright, and Amanda Plummer. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens November 22nd. [Update: EW has released a couple of new images, including a new look at Hemsworth's Gale. They're included after the jump.]
Here’s the official synopsis for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire:
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.
