Lionsgate has released the first TV spot for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in partnership with Walmart, and the one-minute promo manages to pack in some impressive and emotional new footage from the movie.
The TV spot focuses on the love triangle and the emotional side of Catching Fire, playing into Katniss’s feelings towards Gale and Peeta, as well as her sister and Cinna, and her overall compassion for her fellow suffering citizens of Panem.
The footage plays over the backdrop of Coldplay’s “Atlas,” the first single from the Catching Fire soundtrack, which enhances the heartbreaking dilemma facing Katniss as she is forced to once again compete in the Hunger Games arena.
Promotions for Catching Fire are ramping up, with only a few more weeks left until the movie’s November 22nd release date. Last week, Lionsgate also released the first official clip from Catching Fire, showing a scene from a training session that includes some of the other tributes.
