Fans of "The Hunger Games" got a sneak peek at the blockbuster film's sequel during Sunday's "MTV Movie Awards."
Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale Hawthorne in the franchise, introduced the first teaser trailer for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" during the awards show.
The teaser showed Hunger Games victors Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark embarking on their victory tour. But their defiance of the Capitol did not go unnoticed by Panem's citizens -- or its ruler.
"She has become a beacon of hope for them," the totalitarian President Snow (Donald Sutherland) says of Katniss. "She has to be eliminated."
"I think she should die but in the right way, at the right time," replies Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman), the new Head Gamemaker in charge of designing the fight-to-the-death Hunger Games. "Katniss Everdeen is a symbol. You don't have to destroy her, just her image. Show her that she is one of us now. Let them rally behind that. They're going to hate her so much they might just kill her for you."
Lawrence's heroine is also seen having a heart-to-heart with her sister, Prim, and staring down a gun pointed at her by a Peacekeeper.
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" will arrive in theaters on Nov. 22, 2013.
