MTV announced today that the 2013 MTV Movie Awards will exclusively debut the never-before-seen official teaser trailer for the second installment of Lionsgate’s Hunger Games film franchise, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
The trailer will air live on Sunday, April 14 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The debut marks the first footage released of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” ahead of its theatrical release date this fall.
One of the film’s stars, Liam Hemsworth, will introduce this first look at the film. The teaser trailer will then be available online at TheHungerGamesExplorer.com, in partnership with Internet Explorer, after it airs on television.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” begins as Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (played by Josh Hutcherson). Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
Lionsgate will release “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” on November 22, 2013.
