'Catching Fire'

Though comparatively shorter than the film's other previews, this new promotion for the movie showed some of the dangers heroine Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), love interest Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), and the other tributes will face during the new Hunger Games.

The beginning of the trailer shows Katniss climbing a tree and firing an arrow at the sky as President Snow (Donald Sutherland) watches.

“You fought very hard in the arena,” Snow tells Katniss in voiceover. “But they were games. Would you like to be in a real war?” 

The quick images that flash afterward show Katniss’s sister Prim (Willow Shields), Katniss and Peeta arriving for the Games in outfits that are lit with fake flames, and the tributes facing down dangers in the arena such as jabberjays, birds who torture the tributes by recreating the screams of their loved ones. 

Check out the full trailer.
