Glamour talks six reasons why they cannot wait for Hunger Games: Catching Fire!
1. Sam Clafflin as Finnick Odair!
I know that some of you barely know who he is but trust me--Sam is the perfect balance of sexy, confident and caring to pull off the trident wielding tribute from District Four. I can't wait to see the first images of Sam shirtless and fierce--with that strong trident in hand!
2. The "Arena" is Being Filmed in the Jungles and Beaches of Hawaii
I do not want to give anything away for those of you not caught up on the books or only following the series via the movies. But trust me, that setting couldn't be more awesome for what lies ahead for our fearless tributes!
3. More Screen Time for Liam Hemsworth!
Whether you're Team Peeta or Team Gale, you have to admit that Team Gale fans got hardly any love in the Hunger Games! If Catching Fire does right by us, we should get a better taste of the Katniss, Peeta, Gale love triangle!
4. Jena Malone as Johanna Mason = Genius
If you saw Jena in some of her earlier and edgier movies like Saved! and Donnie Darko, then you know that she's a serious actress who can play dark, edgy and sarcastic without missing a beat. She's perfect for the scrappy Johanna--I can't wait to see her go at it with Katniss--and give Jena the breakout role she deserves!
5. More Theatrics from Stanley Tucci as Caeser Flickerman
I loved every minute Caesar winked at the audience and stirred the pot with his personal questions for the tributes in his sparkly suits and outrageous Capitol hair. So happy that he's back to make Katniss open up even more. And of course, I can't wait for the return of Woody Harrleson as Haymitch and Donald Sutherland as President Snow. But, can we just talk about Philip Seymour Hoffman as Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee? Amazing.
6. Jennifer Lawrence
She was out at the Toronto International Film Festival rocking new dark brown locks, ready to get back into Katniss mode. I thought she really embodied what Katniss is all about in movie number one and can't wait to see how she plays it when Katniss steps up as a true symbol of hope in Catching Fire!
