"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" clip: "I never meant for anyone to get killed"

There is some very serious business happening in a new clip from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

The sneak peek, which premiered Wednesday on the film's Facebook page, shows a very intense discussion between Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Haymitch (Woody Harrelson).

"I never meant for anyone to get killed, he has to know that," Katniss tearfully tells Haymitch, referring to President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

"He came to see me. He's worried about rebellion in the Districts," she said.

She begs Haymitch to help her get through their Victory Tour, but he has some harsh words for her.

"This trip doesn't end when you get back home. You never get off this train," he says. "From now on your job is to be a distraction, so people forget what the real problems are."

This isn't the only new "Catching Fire" clip that fans can enjoy -- another was shown during Liam Hemsworth's appearance on "The Tonight Show." Watch that one, where he (as Gale) and Katniss debate the merits of staying in District 12 vs. running away, below (it starts at the 1:24 mark).

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" opens in theaters on Nov. 22.
