First trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: watch now

Plus, a new image arrives

The first full-length trailer has arrived for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, in which Donald Sutherland’s President Snow begins to consider how to take Katniss Everdeen down a peg or two.

The trailer shows the victorious Katniss and Peeta making their way around the twelve districts as part of the Capitol-endorsed victory tour. However, it seems that behind all the pomp and ceremony, trouble is brewing.

The villainous President Snow is concerned by the hope Katniss has stirred in the general populace, and seeks to wipe her out as soon as possible. Fortunately for him, he has the devious Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) on hand to make that a reality…

Take a look at the new trailer, below:



Despite initial concerns at the ultra-quick turnaround Lionsgate had demanded for this one, it looks every bit as epic as we might have hoped. On top of that, Hoffman is a predictably stellar addition, exuding genuine malice in his head to head with Snow.

Plus, a new image has been released online via the film's Facebook page:
