Catch the 'Catching Fire' Cast Live on MTV!


Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss in The Hunger Games Lionsgate

Via MTV News — With only weeks to go before "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" hits theaters, it seems that anticipation to once again watch Katniss Everdeen brave the arena and the vicious competition inside is at an all-time high. And not to push an already excited fanbase over the edge, but MTV has some good news that just might do it.

This Sunday, November 17, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, "MTV's Catching Fire Fan Tribute" will set MTV ablaze. The all-new, televised special will feature interviews with cast members Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Jena Malone and Sam Claflin. The stars will be answering questions from the fans, sharing secrets from behind the scenes, playing games to see if any of the competitiveness from the movie rubbed off on them.

"MTV's Catching Fire Fan Tribute" will be hosted by MTV News' Josh Horowitz and Lenay Dunn from "10 On Top," and they will also test how well the cast members know the "Hunger Games" series with trivia questions.

Read more on MTV News, and be sure to tune in Sunday night!

You Won't See Sam Claflin's Goodies in 'Catching Fire'

Lionsgate Lionsgate

Fangirls (and guys) of the world, commence weeping: We have no chance of seeing Sam Claflin's no-no when he appears on screen November 22 as Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

In the installment of Suzanne Collins' series that the new movie is based on, the rakish tribute appeared — to Katniss' dismay and the delight of imaginative readers everywhere — in a parade wearing only a golden fishnet with a strategically placed knot over his you-know-where. After all, he may be from the fishing-centric District 4, but if he has to dress in a fisherman theme, at least it can be a sexy fisherman theme. (Claflin is very true to canon with this point, making sure that his fellow castmembers told a screaming crowd at Comic-Con that he was "a sex god.")

But it's time for those dreams of shimmering fishnet to be dashed: In an interview with MTV News, costume designer Trish Summerville confirmed that Finnick's parade outfit will not parade his goods as much as in the book. Get More »

The 5 Most OMG Moments from the Final 'Catching Fire' Trailer

The final trailer for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is in, and tributes, they totally saved the best for last with this one ... even if it did launch during last night's fourth World Series game between the Red Sox and the Cardinals for whatever reason (welcome to an all-new brand of competition, sports fans).

In it, we finally get a glimpse at some of that jungle action the gamemakers director Francis Lawrence and his team have rustled up for movie two, and they weren't stingy with peeks at some of the arena's freakiest little tricks either.

So to celebrate all the newness this "Catching Fire" tease has to offer, we're breakin' down the top 5 OMG-iest moments.

If you don't already know that spoilers abound below, you have not been paying attention. Get More »

WTF? Real 'Hunger Games' Camp Encouraged Kids to Fight to the 'Death'

Isabelle Fuhrman as Clove, Alexander Ludwig as Cato, Jack Quaid as Marvel and Leven Rambin as Glimmer in "The Hunger Games" Lionsgate

Forget video game violence. These days, the kiddies are stocking up with real (albeit plastic) weapons and chasing each other down. And we're not talking about laser tag or even a little shoot-'em-up paintball sesh in the woods with protective gear, either. This is the real freakin' deal ... psychologically, at least. Get More »

Nutty Madam Nearly Explodes Watching the New 'Catching Fire' Trailer

With a name like Nutty Madam, you just know that from time to time, things are going to get, well, pretty nutty. And the viral vlogging sensation lived up to her moniker over the weekend with her first YouTube reaction to the brand new trailer for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

How excited was she? Frankly, we'll be surprised if she doesn't literally explode before the movie comes out on Nov. 22. Get More »

'Catching Fire' Heats Up with Shirtless Muscle Man Pic

Lionsgate Lionsgate

The first time we got a glimpse of Sam Claflin as the oh-so-dreamy District 4 trident-wielder Finnick Odair for Francis Lawrence's "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," he was getting a little too close for comfort to Catnip Katniss, and his little smirk had a thousand intonations of intrigue within ... Ooh la la! KitKat clearly wasn't havin' any of it, though (she's already got a feely triangle taking shape, after all).

More importantly, the "Hunger Games" faithful were donning a collective Not Impressed face because, well, the man was described as being so damn beautiful that all the women of the Capitol couldn't help but fall all over themselves at the very sight of him, and the first glimpse didn't show a whole lot of that aspect.

Now that the clock is tick-tocking down to the film's release, though, the gamemakers of this franchise have decided to notch up the sex appeal a little further for this water-friendly tribute, releasing (via Entertainment Weekly) this new still of the hunk ... sans a shirt. Get More »

New 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Posters: Tiiiiight Costumes

the-hunger-games-catching-fire-character-banner-peetaWith San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner, it's no coincidence that Lionsgate chose this week to unveil the superhero-iffic costumes from the next installment of "The Hunger Games."

Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and nine other veteran and new cast members from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" are looking quite fetching in the skintight, futuristic, scuba suit looking tournament getups they're sporting. The studio behind the multiple MTV Movie Award-winning franchise debuted the 11 posters across six outlets on Tuesday: MTV News, Yahoo! Movies, MSN, Empire, Moviefone and the LA Times Hero Complex.

"The Hunger Games" isn't a superhero story of course, nor is the series based on comic books. But ever since Jessica Alba and Dane Cook brought a rom-com to the Con, all bets are off, right? "The Hunger Games" at least has plenty of genre elements, so the crew will be welcomed with open arms by the Hall H crowd on Saturday (or least, they should expect a better welcome than "Twilight"). Saturday will also see the unveiling of a brand new "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" trailer. Get More »

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Trailer Wish List: Here's What We Want to See

EW Lionsgate

Pretty much the entire point of the first trailer for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," launched all the way back in April, was to remind everyone that (a) while it'd take 'em a full year and a half — tick tock indeed — to parachute drop this sequel to the hungry citizens of Panem, it would happen and (b) that even though director Gary Ross dropped it like it was hot, the transition to new director Francis Lawrence would be a Seam-less one, so to speak. (How do you like that for a lil tribute chuckle? Hungry for more? Okay, we'll stop.)

But we've been waiting long enough, and we have needs. Needs that will hopefully be met by the trailer that Lionsgate announced would debut next month at Comic-Con, complete with a Hall H panel with the stars in attendance. Get More »
