Jennifer Lawrence Shines in New “Catching Fire” Photos!

It’s been a pretty good week for Jennifer Lawrence fans so far. Not only did we witness the 22-year-old actress win a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy on Sunday night (and looking gorgeous as always on the red carpet), but we’re also being treated to some new images and a poster from the hotly-anticipated “Hunger Games” sequel, “Catching Fire”.

Us folks at Nicerazzi had previously reported on the sequel back in November when some behind-the-scenes photos were leaked showing our favorite heroine diving into filming in Hawaii, but we now have some official stills to consider. The new shots give us a peek at some old favorites (more Gale! Hello, Liam Hemsworth!) and some new characters (Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee!)

No disrespect to Plutarch, but I think most fans will agree that a first glimpse at fan-favorite Finnick Odair (as played by Sam Claflin) has been high on must-have list, and it doesn’t disappoint. The picture shows the cocky District 4 tribute cozying up to girl-on-fire Katniss with a smirk that characterizes his flirtatious arrogance from the book. Anyone who has read the book, however, knows there’s more to Finnick than meets the eye so it will be intriguing to watch Claflin play out the character’s ambiguous motives.

We also get a chance to see Katniss delivering what I’m assuming is a speech on her victory tour, with loyal paramour Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) at her side. No clue as to what her speech is about, but I can say Katniss and Peeta’s victory in the Games have earned them some snazzy new duds. Nice suits!

The new poster isn’t much of a shocker, showing the iconic mockingjay up in flames, which is quite similar to the poster from the original film. But regardless, it’s all adding up to one heck of a publicity campaign for a movie that we tragically won’t see until November 22! The difficult wait for the movie could, however, be softened with the release of a teaser trailer. You hear that, Lionsgate? Any day now, please…
