While we met most of the main Hunger Games players in the first film, one on the new players in Catching Fire who becomes increasingly important is Finnick Odair, a former champion beloved by the women of the Capitol. However while he initially appears arrogant and entitled, he slowly reveals a more complex character.
Now we’ve got a brand new image of Odair, as played by Sam Claflin, from the movie, and he’s shirtless!
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.’
The film’s due out November 22nd.
And if you want to see the shirtlessness in motion, you can see it in the recently released new trailer below. [Read more…]
