Hunger Games fans, get excited! Catching Fire may not be coming out until November, but today we get to see an exciting new poster for the sequel. It features Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) in what looks like the Capitol's poster for their Hunger Games Victory Tour. Naturally, they look like the winners they are: cleaned-up, well-dressed, and close enough to each other that you'd believe they were in love. While I've been enjoying seeing Lawrence on the award-show circuit, this poster reminds me that what I really can't wait to see her in is this movie. Check out a larger version of the poster and let me know what you think after the jump.
Recent Golden Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence is still making the press rounds, and though award season is exciting, she's back to talking about what we're really excited about: The Hunger Games! Lawrence went on Live With Kelly and Michael to talk about shooting Catching Fire in Hawaii, and characteristically, Lawrence had a funny anecdote ready to go, joking about possibly getting cursed for scratching an itch on a sacred rock.
We've been dying for any glimpse we can get of Catching Fire, and today we've got a big treat! Entertainment Weekly has the first official look at the Hunger Games sequel on this week's cover, featuring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss and newcomer Sam Claflin as Finnick — all suited up and ready for their second time in the arena. I'm already hungry for more pictures, but in the meantime, Claflin is looking pret-ty good with that trident, no? In the issue, Lawrence jokes about her candid interviews with the media, while Claflin admits that he's moderately terrified of the Hunger Games fan base. Here are highlights:
- Jennifer Lawrence, joking about running her mouth to reporters: "It’s almost like I subconsciously don’t want to work anymore, so I’m trying to ruin my career. I'm pregnant!"
- JL on crazy antics between takes: "When Sam [Claflin] walked in, I was chasing Woody [Harrelson], and we’d flipped over my couch, and Woody had a sock all the way down my throat . . . "
- Sam Claflin on taking on a more provocative scene from the book: "The scariest moment of my life. I’m on Twitter, and so many people have been like, 'Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.'"

Finally, our first official look at Catching Fire's hot costumes and steamy scenes! Jennifer Lawrence smolders as Katniss on the cover of Entertainment Weekly's latest issue. We've got an update from the Hawaii set of the second Hunger Games film, including why Jennifer is not impressed by "Hollywood's B.S.," plus the details on her big award-season week, starting with tonight's People's Choice Awards, in this PopSugar Rush!
A shirtless Josh Hutcherson hit the beach in Maui Tuesday while hanging out on the set of Catching Fire. Between takes, the actor entertained himself by tossing a frisbee back and forth with one of his costars. Josh's anchor tattoo on his side was exposed, as well as the nautical design between his shoulder blades, but he also sported a nasty battle wound on his neck. The gash was all for show, but the movie makeup managed to hold up even as Josh took a dive into the Pacific and went for a swim.
Josh and Jennifer Lawrence began shooting in Hawaii late last month and it appears the Hunger Games sequel has its stars spending plenty of time working in water. Josh and Jennifer wore wet suits last week as they dove into action. Josh isn't the only guy to bare his abs this year. Check out the best shirtless moments of 2012 and vote for your favorite!
Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson were back on the Hawaiian set of Catching Fire yesterday. Josh went shirtless, showing off a side tattoo while Jennifer wore a wet suit for filming. The costars first popped up in front of the cameras earlier this week after Jennifer enjoyed a few days off on the tropical island. Jennifer was in a bikini on the beach for Thanksgiving, which she celebrated with her brother. We may have to wait until next November to see her reprise her role as Katniss Everdeen on the big screen, but she'll be honored for her work before then. Jennifer will receive the outstanding performer of the year award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival in January following her success in The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook this year.
Jennifer Lawrence was back in full Katniss mode, complete with her signature braid and bow and arrows, on the set of Catching Fire in Hawaii this week. She was joined by her costars Josh Hutcherson and Sam Claflin, who play Peeta and Finnick, respectively, in the Hunger Games sequel. The story takes Katniss and Peeta back into another Hunger Games, and this time the arena is mostly covered in water, which explains the wetsuits and diving we're seeing here. Check out all the pics to see Peeta get a helping hand from Finnick, Finnick taking a dive, and Katniss chowing down on some fruits of the sea.
Spoiler alert: the Quarter Quell has begun! We've got photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and newcomer Sam Claflin diving into Catching Fire's on-set — and at sea — action while filming in Hawaii, plus the latest on Jennifer's award season nominations.
