Fire is Catching: First Look at "Catching Fire"

Congrats to The Hunger Games for dominating the People's Choice Awards with its multiple wins, particularly in the Favorite Movie and Franchise categories! All the Tributes really pulled through in giving it an even larger "global voice".

Just recently, the first look images of its upcoming sequel Catching Fire have been released by Entertainment Weekly. Fans of the new heartthrob Finnick Odair (who made his first appearance on Book 2 of the trilogy) can now see actor Sam Claflin in character as he and our tough heroine Katniss Everdeen share a seductive scene, as shown on this shot:

Having followed his earlier acting works (including Snow White and the Huntsman and Pirates of the Caribbean 4), I definitely approve :) He's the type of actor who actually has that rare combination of magnetic charm and soul that largely defines Finnick.

Who was he in Pirates 4? The priest? :D I can't place his face. :D

He was the lovesick guy who fell in love with the mermaid :D Everyone said it was his weakest role, and I had to agree about his character. But he'll be badass and complex in "Catching Fire" so I really believe this movie will be his breakthrough. LOL.
