Book Trailer Thursday (118)–Catching Fire Movie Trailer

I’m sure many of you have already seen this trailer, but for those of you who haven’t, here you go!  Catching Fire is my favorite book in The Hunger Games trilogy, so I’m really excited to see this when it releases on November 22nd.  I haven’t read the book in a long time, and to be honest, I probably won’t reread it because I want to enjoy the movie without criticizing every last detail that’s left out or messed up.  This trailer makes the movie look promising.  I’d love to know what you think of the trailer!

I originally wasn’t planning on including the summary because I think most of us know what this book is about, but it’s never good to assume.

Catching Fire Movie PosterSummary (From Goodreads):

Sparks are igniting.
Flames are spreading.
And the Capitol wants revenge.

Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol – a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

In Catching Fire, the second novel in the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before…and surprising readers at every turn.


  1. We took all of our 7th and 8th graders to see The Hunger Games when it hit the theatres, and I enjoyed it. For me, the movie is never as good as the book, but since I don’t expect it to be, I think I can enjoy the movie more. This trailer makes me want to see this movie. I haven’t read the book in a long time as well and won’t reread it at least until after I see the movie. I look forward to ‘remembering’ the book through the movie. Thanks for posting the trailer!

  2. I am extremely excited for the second Hunger Games movie to come out! However, when I was reading the book, I didn’t imagine it as dark as the previews portray it. I imagine this is because the books are written from Katniss’s point of view, while the movies have to tell the entire story of the rebellion without any background knowledge being assumed. I just hope that the arena will be as vibrant and frightening as it was in the book, because it would be a shame if the novel was not portrayed properly.

I love comments!
