‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ First TV Spot Plays Up the Romance
It’s been mentioned that ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘ would focus more on the love triangle between Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), and the first TV spot plays that up by adding a Coldplay song to the background.
The song is “Atlas,” and this first TV spot showcases the growing tension between Katniss and Peeta as they pretend to be in love for the camera — though one of them isn’t crazy about the other — while also showing Gale being moody. Where the first film had the game to focus on, there’s very little action in this spot, it’s more about the emotional weight being put on Lawrence’s character. This seems geared at either keeping or snaring ‘Twilight‘ fans.
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ opens November 22. Here’s the film’s synopsis:
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.
