First look at Sam Claflin with Jennifer Lawrence in Catching Fire

Filming has recently wrapped in Hawaii on the second film in the Hunger Games series, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire which sees the return of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, alongside British star Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair, her new ally.

After he won his Hunger Games for District 4 when he was 14 thanks to his prowess with a trident, Finnick’s rakish good looks and louche charm helped him become something of a celebrity in the Capitol. Along with Katniss and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), the 24-year-old Finnick is among the previous champions forced to return to the arena for the 75th annual Hunger Games, also known as the Quarter Quell. Katniss is initially wary of him , but Finnick proves to be a powerful ally once they get to the arena.

The pair can also be seen on the cover of Entertainment Weekly:

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due to be released on November 21st 2013.

The final part of the series, Mockingjay, will follow franchises like Harry Potter and Twilight and be split into two parts.

The first is lined up for release on 21st November 2014, with the concluding part out on 20th November 2015.
