Bizarrely dedicated Hunger Games fans, begin thy squealing: the first teaser trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiered during the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night. And it contains all that you would expect from a Hunger Games ad: a stirring story about one young woman who can change the world, social decay and revolt against the strictures of its own class-based system, and lots of goofy and futuristic hairdos.
The teaser lays out the film’s premise pretty quickly—President Snow (Donald Sutherland) takes note of how quickly the angry rabble of society have rallied around 74th Annual Hunger Games winner Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Seeing this, he plans on having her killed before Philip Seymour Hoffman suggests assassinating her image instead.
What follows is a lot of melodrama and angst-y rebellion plots, which should send the Young Adult crowd’s collective heart a-flutter. Check it out:
Featuring an overstuffed cast of co-stars including Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, Toby Jones, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Amanda Plummer, Jeffery Wright, and Jena Malone, and direction from Francis Lawrence, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is set for a November 22, 2013 release date.
