Geek-Out Time: New Photos from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"

Happy Saturday! Let's start out the weekend with some geeking out, shall we?

Effie seems to think we should!

IndieWire has lots of new pictures from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," which you can see here. There are lots of the characters from the first movie, including Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Prim, Katniss' mom, Haymitch, Effie, Cinna, Caesar Flickerman, Plutarch Heavensbee and President Snow, but we also get to see some of the new tributes, including Cashmere, Gloss,  Johanna, Wiress, Beetee, Mags, Brutus, Enobaria and, of course, FINNICK! Eee!

I don't know about all y'all, but I am SO incredibly excited about the next "Hunger Games" movie. I am still incredibly wary about how the third book will translate on screen, because it's very introspective at times, but I think that "Catching Fire" will actually make a very exciting movie. 

A few stray thoughts:
  • Nobody else could play Katniss like Jennifer Lawrence can. She is fantastic in the role. Ditto with Woody Harrelson as Haymitch. Sheer perfection.
  • Peeta is so adorable. Josh Hutcherson is not what I pictured Peeta looking like when I read the books originally, but he is actually weirdly perfect. He is not as tall as I thought Peeta would be, but he looks strong and he has the most wonderful wounded puppy dog eyes, which is necessary because poor Peeta feels like a sad, wounded puppy a lot.
  • Effie Trinket is just plain fabulous.
  • Stanley Tucci is a national treasure. Can he be in every movie? 
  • They got Mags perfect, no?
  • And finally, LOOK AT FINNICK OMG THOSE DIMPLES! *melts*
What do you think of the new "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" photos?
