Katniss hugs Prim in new still from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

A new Hunger Games image starring Jennifer Lawrence and Willow Shields has been 'unlocked' online by Twitter users


With seven long months to go until Catching Fire finally hits UK cinema screens, Hunger Games fans (us included) are on tenterhooks waiting for the next snippet of Katniss’ story to be revealed. So here’s a little something to keep you going…


A new image from the much-anticipated film has been released online, starring Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and her on-screen sister Prim, played by Willow Sheilds.

The shot, which shows the two sisters embracing, has been ‘unlocked’ on Twitter by fans eager to get their hands on more previews of the upcoming release.

There are four more stills from the next film tantilisingly close to being unveiled on the Hunger Games Explorer website, too. All you need to do to unlock them is get on Twitter and use the hashtag #HungerGamesExplorer. (What are you waiting for?!)

And we don’t want to get you too excited, but the first trailer for Catching Fire is set to be screened during the MTV Movie Awards on 19 April, so you can expect to see that online soon too…

The Hunger Games films are set in a post apocalyptic world called Panem where everyone is sectioned into twelve districts ruled over by the all powerful Capitol. The first Hunger Games film, which was based on the first book in Suzanne Collins’ sensational trilogy, saw Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark drafted in to take part in the annual Hunger Games, a compulsory event organised by the Capitol in which 24 teenagers fight to the death on live TV.

Catching Fire will see the victorious duo return to life in District 12 after winning the 74th Hunger Games. But it won’t be long before the yearly Games come around again…


Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be in UK cinemas on 22 November
