The final Catching Fire trailer was released during Oct. 27’s Game 4 of the World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals. It features some of the first footage of Katniss inside the second Hunger Games arena, this time working with a band of friends.

This installment takes place during the 75th Hunger Games, which is also the year of a Quarter Quell. These come around every 25 years, and tend to feature certain twists to make it harder for the tributes to win.

In Catching Fire the “twist” is that all past victors must compete against one another, so Katniss and her faux-beau Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) are once again thrown into the arena to fight against some of the most ruthless killers in Panem.

The change in the rules came about after Katniss started becoming a symbol of hope to the fallen districts, and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) decided to put her back in her place.
