The Catching Fire Clip Show

Catching Fire press overload has begun! BRING IT, BABY!

We know that it can be daunting for some, but we personally love soaking in all the teasers before the movie actually hits theaters. Most fans will turn around in a week and say “It feels like we’ve seen half the movie already!” Well, ya haven’t and you’ll realize that once you get out the theater!

As much as we love interviews, we’re in it for the REAL goods… That’s right: CLIPS. Sweet, delicious angst-dipped morsels of movie magic! Unlike trailers, it’s more than 5 seconds per shot and you really get to feel the moment!

We’ve been graced with two clips in the last couple days. Now let’s get together and drool over them!

Clip #1 – “You Do What You Want. I’m Staying Here.”

As introduced by Hemsy and The Chin (after confirming that Liam does not, in fact, have sex with kangaroos), clip #1 shows Katniss and Gale debating whether or not to run away from District 12.

Gale doesn’t seem as fervently anti-Capitol in his pursuits to protect the districts as he is in the books. Perhaps the raging ripping off of leather gloves just didn’t have the same effect on screen?! But alas, the cross-marketing opportunity of Gale angrily turning away Capitol Couture products has been missed! Forever sad! Then again, this obviously isn’t the WHOLE scene, just a pretty chunk.

But for real, guys… Katniss effing Everdeen. She doesn’t want anyone looking to her! She can’t help them! And we totally believe her helplessness in that moment, even though we know she’s dead wrong in the long run.

That girl had our emotions all in a tizzy until our attentions were turned to the Capitol brigade and their gas-guzzling ways!

Also, we feel like we should be writing free verse poetry about the gray barrenness of District 12… and possibly these characters’ lives. Just because.

Clip #2 – “This Trip Doesn’t End When You Go Back Home.”

Damn Haymitch! Time for three snaps in Z formation as you tell these n00b victors what it’s all about! Winning The Hunger Games is (usually) a one-time deal, but being a victor is FOREVER.

Note that both Haymitch and Peeta are not in the loop about Katniss’ debacle in film world, which probably means Peeta doesn’t have a massive meltdown about being kept in the dark all the time. But he still seems pretty damn pissed, which gives us a look at the appropriately bolder Peeta that’s more in line with the books.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence is really good at crying. She cries on cue like a boss! And it’s tearing up our hearts into little teeny shreds! Katniss will be emotionally shot for 90% of this movie, which means we will be too. Dammit!

Only One More Thing We Need… MOAR CLIPS!

  1. Yup. Woody stole the scene. That line “You NEVER get off this train” was so chilling. Seems like FLawrence is really playing up Katniss’s ambivalence about her role and her PTSD; the girl is falling apart in front of our eyes. It should be interesting, but very dark, quite devastating to watch. I’m bringing tissues, maybe a whole box!

  2. Love the clips and the emotional aspects. It seems to me that Haymitch’s line about “you never get off this train” is a combination of the conversation where he tells Katniss she’s going to have to marry that boy (or something like that). And while I don’t think they are going to have Peeta in a rage the way he was in the book, I love the intensity and “appropriately bolder” Peeta, as you put it. Can’t believe the movie is ALMOST HERE!
