First it sated your hunger for all things Panem with Siracha-charged “Fiery Footlongs,” now sandwich-slinger Subway is debuting a brand-new TV spot for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” via its Facebook page.
The minute-long clip is set against Christina Aguilera’s rousing “We Remain” from the “Catching Fire” soundtrack (out November 19). And while many scenes are rehashed from the trailer (Katniss spinning in her wedding dress, Gale kissing his childhood friend), there are a few new morsels to savor.
Like the opening moments, in which Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) thanks her dresser Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) for the beautiful interview frock he crafted for her. (Fans of Suzanne Collins’ novel will surely understand the significance of this brief exchange.)
And let’s not forget the other tributes, who get plenty of play here. There’s District 4’s Mags (Lynn Cohen) offering Katniss a moment of encouragement, followed by District 7’s Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) encouraging Katniss to, “Make ’em pay for it.” Oh, and Finnick (Sam Claflin) is back without his shirt on (not that we’re complaining).
It all adds up to another tasty sneak peek of Katniss and Peeta’s return to the arena.
“This time we got to create a very special arena on film, which is really fun,” director Francis Lawrence told MTV News recently. “We actually created a tropical environment that’s in a bit of a bowl, and the jungle is surrounding a circular pool of water filled with ocean water and choppy waves, and a volcanic rock island in the center of that, where our cornucopia sits and the elevators with the tributes all come up in the middle of the water. It’s a bit of a challenge because that environment doesn’t actually exist, so we had to put that puzzle together.”
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” opens November 22.
