Last spring Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games took the world by storm and brought in an impressive $686 million dollars worldwide, with $400 of that being domestic. I didn’t care for the film’s sappy and hollow drama that was followed too closely by director Gary Ross‘ frantic and quite simply distracting camerawork.
This is a book series though and people want to see the rest of the books hit the big screen, regardless of what I or very few others think.
Today we’ve got our first look at The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The picture is kind of safe and boring, but it shows us star Jennifer Lawrence and her new co-star Sam Claflin (playing Finnick…?)
I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be excited or extremely depressed.
You tell me.
Here’s a shot of the EW cover too:
