The cast of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" made an appearance at Comic-Con over the weekend, along with a new trailer for the highly anticipated sequel.

Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz and cast newcomer Jena Malone were among the film's stars who watched the trailer for the first time Saturday with more than 6,000 dedicated fans.

Lawrence and Hutcherson also talked about their kissing scenes in the film. She said they involved "a lot of slobber."

Hutcherson said, "It will be really hot if you're into snot."

Lawrence also discussed training for the stunts she performs in the film but noted, "the hardest stunt is probably still just basic running."

She said she runs "weird" and added that she had a running coach for the film.

"Running and trying not to hit myself in the face with my bow, those were my two greatest challenges," she said.

Lawrence, who won the best actress Oscar earlier this year for her role in "Silver Linings Playbook" and was previously nominated for "Winter's Bone," said that the Hunger Games Victory Tour is not unlike navigating Hollywood's awards season.

"The stakes weren't as high," she quipped. Contestants in "The Hunger Games" must kill their competitors.

The actress also made another Oscars-"Hunger Games" connection: Her favorite costume from the new film is a voluminous wedding dress with a skirt five feet in diameter.

"I'm not good at walking in giant dresses, as we know," she said, referring to the spill she took on her way to claim her Oscar in a full-skirted gown.

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is scheduled for release on Nov. 22. Watch the trailer below:
