Strap in, because eleven months of marketing begins now. With "The Hunger Games" earning over $680 million worldwide, launching Jennifer Lawrence into the stratosphere and cementing a new tween brand, Lionsgate want those numbers to keep going up. Which is why with a release date set for November, they're starting to get the word out now on the sequel.

Entertainment Weekly has dropped the first look at Katniss and Finnick in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," along with two more images featuring Josh Hutcherson and Liam HemsworthSam Claflin is the new addition to the cast, and in case you didn't read the book (you're not a true fan), Finnick is a popular, former victor of the Hunger Games who crosses paths with Katniss and Peeta during a particularly crucial moment. The character sticks around as well, and will be seen in the two-film finale "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay." And the actor certainly feels the weight of expectation, telling the magazine, "I’m on Twitter and so many people have been like ‘Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.’”

So tell us, devotees...does he look the part? 'Catching Fire' arrives on November 22nd.

    Well at least in the first film I could kind of buy Lawrence in the action heroine role, but now that she has brought herself down to true Hollywood starlet weight, she looks ridiculous. The size 1, female action hero is just pissing me off. Suspension of reality I can understand, but come on. And no, that guy looks nothing like Odair from the novel is described. Twilight will do that to ya'.

    Stop trying to make Sam Claflin happen. He's not going to happen.

    I thought his hair, eyes and skin get darker and he gets taller with the more people he kills.
    Such a vital piece of literature and social comment, getting it 'wrong' may add credibility.

    No, he doesn't look the part. Finnick was described as a sort of a "golden boy." Sam Claflin has more of a dark look to him...with his hair bleached to make him golden. I guess we will see if he is convincing in the movie!

    I gotta imagine the kid who makes cakes is really pissed right now. And the other hulking blonde guy she liked with the sloping forehead.

    The first one was horrible.

    Yes, I couldn't agree more. I hope Jennifer Lawrence gives a better performance- with her previous performance, she didn't bring any depth or spark to Katniss. Why didn't they hire Saoirse Ronan, after she screen tested. Saoirse would have rocked the role. She was made for a role like this.

    He looks like an elf from Middle Earth.
