MTV has announced that its presentation of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on April 14 will include the world premiere of the never-before-seen official teaser trailer for the eagerly awaited second installment of The Hunger Games film franchise, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hits U.S. theaters Nov. 22, 2013.
This teaser trailer will mark the first footage released of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ahead of its theatrical release. Liam Hemsworth, who stars in the film, will officially introduce the two-and-a-half minutes of footage from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victory 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.
Following its world premiere at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, the teaser trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will then be available online at thehungergamesexplorer.com.
And, this is just a hunch, but I’m guessing that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will also make an appearance at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards — as a nominee in at least a few categories.
The world premiere of the teaser trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire debuts during the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, which air April 14 at 9pm ET.
