The film, directed by Francis Lawrence, is due out in November this year, following the massive success of the first installment.

The plot, which depending on whether or not you have seen the first film may involve spoilers, revolves around Everdeen returning from her victory at the 74th Annual Hunger Games.

But on a 'victor's tour' of the districts of Panem, she senses the rumblings of a rebellion.

Reprising roles are Lawrence, Claflin, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson and Donald Sutherland, while new cast-members include Jena Malone and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
