Updated With Domestic!! The International Motion Poster For THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE Will Leave You With A Burning Sensation!!

The Kidd here...

THE HUNGER GAMES is set to carry on with the next leg of the book trilogy/movie quadrilogy (the last one now always has to be split into two parts apparently) due in November 2013.

However, to get fans burning with anticipation (ahh... you see what I did there), an international teaser motion poster has made its way online, courtesy of Lionsgate, to start spreading awareness for the next chapter of Katniss Everdeen's story in CATCHING FIRE.

I expect the excitement to start spreading like wildfire among fans any moment now. (Oh, man... I could do this all day.)

 

UPDATE: Now in English, too (in case you didn't want to have to translate)...

    Two movies for one book? Sounds good.

    by hadrion

    Look at Game of Thrones... 12 hours for one book, seems to work well. Hoping they do Dune that way next.

    The series - great first book, goes downhill fast

    by I_Snake_Plissken

    I think this may be a case where the movie has a chance to improve things. The last book is like Red Dawn lite.

    It IS a two movie series, not a trilogy. It's just that the last movie got split in two. Makes $ense.

    Deathly Hallows split

    by pikazerox

    Was definitely worth it, but they still shortchanged part 2 by about 40 minutes, there was a ton of stuff still missing and plot holes because they still glossed over shit from the book.

  • It's needlessly being expanded. It's a cash grab to do it in 2 parts.

    I'd like to see a franchise that fizzles out before it's finished.

    by kindofabigdeal

    Kinda like how Twilight lost its gust by the end but crowds still showed up to the very end. I want a movie to fall off so bad that the final book isn't even greenlit. Then the tween fad can finally die.

    Narnia films fizzled out

    by Smartacus

    Audience was AWOL by the third one. Of course that wasn't really like these tween films but it's the closest thing I can think of to what you described. Nobody really thought all of the Narnia books would get filmed anyway. Nevermind.

  • Nov. 20, 2012, 3:35 p.m. CST

    Didn't load ... what the fuck?

    by F This

    Fucking motherfucker ...

  • There was a lot of shit that was glossed over or outright ignored in the movies. They probably had enough content in the books to do 2 movies for each of the last 3 or 4 books. That would have been fucking bad ass.

  • Unless there is a wholesale change to the third part of the story, what the fuck are these stupid ass execs thinking?

    Great Opportunity

    by monkey_tamer

    As has been mentioned, the third book is... um... not well executed. Some interesting concepts (it goes pretty dark especially at the very end with what happens to the "new" president), but everything is sort of mashed together incoherently. It is one of the few times I think they could actually really make the movie(s) better than the book. Keep the general themes and put together a better plot.

  • Nov. 20, 2012, 3:47 p.m. CST

    I agree with lhombresiniestro

    by professor murder

    It doesn't make sense, but it DOES make cents.

  • every single one of those movies was too long. What you really needed more faux latin magic words and magical creatures they learn about in the first reel only to become GASP! important in the third reel. fuck those movies.

  • Overall I really liked the movies, especially from part 3 on. But not having read the books until just before Deathly Hallows Part 2 movie I had wondered about certain things that really weren't explained much or at all. Once I read the books I was shocked at how much they missed in the films.

    This was a teaser "trailer" on some Twilight prints.

    by the_patriot

    When I was doing quality control checks this past weekend on auditoriums of Twilight and Lincoln, this motion poster had a green band on the front of it and was called a teaser trailer. All it really did was piss off the fans since there was NOTHING to it except a date that was a year away.

    There was nothing original to the Hungers Games movie to me

    by hopeless

    Never read the books but I did see the movie and I guess I am one of the few that didnt like the movie. To me the start of the movie slow and boring and when they go to the city it turned into a Joel Shumacher Batman movie with all the colors the clothes, the hair styles and the way people acted. And when the tournament finally started all that Katniss chick did was run and hide and some how survived. Idk I was let down so I think I'll pass on the next ones

  • Haven't even Netflixed it yet. Sheeesh

    re: Deathly Hallows split

    by Jaka

    Yeah, they should have split every movie after Prisoner of Azkaban, really gone for it. The books were DEFINITELY long enough and it would have allowed them to follow ALL the stories through to the final film. I'll never understand why they didn't do this, either. They could have filmed them as far ahead of time as needed to keep the actors the right age, or just released one film every 6 months instead of once a year. Every damn one of them would have made just as much as they did by cutting them to pieces. I don't even enjoy watching GoF and OotP anymore because they're so damn altered.

  • Nov. 21, 2012, 12:57 a.m. CST

    re: These books being split

    by Jaka

    I haven't read them, so I don't know if its necessary, or if it would damage the story by editing it into one movie. I will say that I like the trend and I hope they continue with it for film adaptations of series like this. Film scripts, by and large, are not NEARLY as long as a even a short novel. In some cases, such as a series of books that you KNOW are all going to be adapted, I think the split works and is a great idea. Obviously, splitting a single book makes less sense, particularly classics.

    Battle Royale plaigrising heap of shit story

    by Seth Gecko

    She denies ever having seen the film or knowing of the story. What bullshit. At least BR acknowledges it is heavily influenced by Lord Of The Flies

  • These are not just little "my favorite part of the book was left out!" things or "silly new spells", but major story points that would make the movies make more sense and give them a better sense of drama. In Half Blood Prince, the movie basically ignores most of Potter reading the Half Blood Prince's potions book and getting great grades in potions class because of it (grades which he needs to pass his tests to be able train for his chosen profession). Which is really the whole point of the story, that book and how Harry learns from it and who wrote it and all. It kinda sorta starts to tell that story, but then stops. So when the movie suddenly reveals Snape as the Half Blood Prince, and doesn't really explain anything about his backstory or what "Half Blood Prince" means or anything, it's just a sudden surprise that means nothing. It makes it a Scooby Doo ending rather than an actual story. In Order of the Phoenix, guess who was barely in the movie at all? The Order of the Phoenix! The movie is named for them, but we meet them once at the beginning, and then they show up for the final fight at the end, and that's it. The characters each have interesting personalities and do interesting things, and are important characters in the rest of the series, but in the movie we never really got to know them so any deaths or weddings or other events in the Deathly Hallows are robbed of any drama or significance. In Deathly Hallows, Harry is constantly looking at this mirror shard through both damn movies, and the movies NEVER explain where he got it or anything about it except for the reveal at the end of who Harry kept seeing in it. I don't know anyone who didn't read the books who understands what that mirror shard is or where Harry got it or why he keeps looking init. Or how Dobby the house elf knows to come rescue Harry and friends (related to the shard). Sure it's already a long movie split into two, but if they had spent a couple minutes spread out throughout the two movies explaining that, it would have cleared up a LOT of confusion.

    The Hunger Games was just...

    by Darkness

    "Hard Target" for kids. Complete and utter nonsense dressed up like the worst pantomime you could concieve. Elizabeth Banks looked completely embarrassed by her characters design. I wanted all the kids to kill themselves in the first reel, because they were bordering on annoying. Can't believe Seymour Hoffman has attached himself to this drivel. Still, money talks.

  • Nov. 21, 2012, 9:53 a.m. CST

    Pretty fucking cool effect.

    by knowthyself

  • but really, I don't understand how any adults are harry potter fans in the first place. Its kids books. They're over-simplified wish-fulfillment bullshit designed to maintain the status quo. They're sorta fun, but in a very trashy throw-away manner. So maybe its nostalgia? The first book came out in what, 1998, right? so if you're older than 25 or so that shouldn't be a factor. But if you are into it, you already know the story and if they gloss over stuff, you're not actually missing it. If you didn't read the books why are you interested in it at all? The stories are cute, but they aren't all that good in the first place. sorry if I'm shitting on somebody's fandom, but I just don't see the appeal beyond the most casual of encounters. but if you're a fan of harry potter...like enough to want 14 movies instead of 7, you've gotta be invested in the timeline at least enough to pick up a book to get those details. A good movie SHOULD leave you wondering a bit, not answer all you questions so you forget it by the time the sequel comes out. Non-fans are gonna crap out after 4 or 5 movies because they forget the plot. MORE details are going to just make that worse.

    I rather liked the Hunger Games movie.

    by J.B.M.A.

    Not challenging cinema, and spoiled by comparisons to Battle Royal, but fun nonetheless. The books are equally light (to begin with) but a good read. However, the final book in the series really, REALLY becomes epically grim. I don't know how they are going to sell that to the kiddies. Besides the obvious cash grab I can see why they might want to split the book events over two films - regardless of actual page count, the events it covers would prove much harder to slim down to a manageable size than the first novel.

    And booger_t

    by J.B.M.A.

    Good films should make you wonder through the ideas they present, not by omitting pertinent information. That simply leaves an audience confused. Many of the irritating missteps of the Potter series could have been easily avoided with the insertion of a few lines of dialogue. Unless you are a Prometheus fan of course, in which case I can't help you ; )

    Deathly Hallows 2

    by pikazerox

    again on the running time, each HP movie before it is at least 150 minutes, some nearly 3 hours, but the big finale got a 2 hour cap. They didn't even use that time wisely. For instance King's Cross in the book explained a fuck ton of stuff with lots of payoff from previous books, while the movie version explained nothing but still ran for like 6 minutes. baffling. Snape's memory was pretty good though for a gloss over.

  • thats probably it. But in my opinion that series would have benefited vastly from more open-ended strangeness and fewer rules. Though most of what I have in mind would throw a wrench in the ridiculous success of the franchise.

    by MovieManStill

    True - I could not see them finishing the series, for a variety of reasons. The kids are not in all of the books....the actors have grown up too fast...the books become more blatantly Christian, especially "The Last Battle." I must have read the books a dozen times growing up, but it has been thirty years.

  • Lame. I like the unique titles.

  • goes to show what kind of crowd this is aimed at. And just because katniss sang a song with the word 'meadow' in it said swift fans would turn to me and smile and I tried my best not to roll my eyes at them. That said, I enjoyed it and plunked down what little $ i have and bought the exclusive from best buy. I'll take this over summit's other teen franchise any day.

    That wasn't the point of Half Blood Prince....

    by ProfWimsey

    The Prince book told a story about Harry's personal politics. The movie opted to tell a story about sexual politics, instead: and that made the whole "who is the Prince?" plot-line superfluous. What they should have done was cut all of the Lav-Lav & Won-Won crap: it was bad in the book and worse on film. They should have replaced it with Scrimgeour and Harry's political choices between Dumbledore & Scrimmy, as well as Harry going Karl Rove on Snape & Malfoy. However, it could and should have been done in one film. With Hallows, the first film was just a storyless string of events. The book's story about Understanding the Greater Good was completely lost: as was any other possible story! It was a pointless as the Columbus films. (Columbus has no comprehension of story, so that's not surprising.) The 2nd film came together with a well-tolkd story about Undying Love, but it was too late to salvage the franchise at that point. As for Order, the title was not germane to the story. There, both book and film told stories about personal isolation. The film did a much better job than the book: that badly, badly needed editing, as it has entire chapters that contribute nothing to story or plot.
