WATCH: Final ‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Trailer

In the third and final trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hits theaters November 22, we see Katniss attempting to escape from the monkey island that is entirely controlled by disapproving Capital watchdogs. THE SUSPENSE, THE SUSPENSE… oh wait, I read the book.

Video: Alicia Keys – “Girl On Fire”
