Dailies | ‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ TV Spot Highlights Awkward Love Triangle, Coldplay's ‘Atlas’ (Video)

Jennifer Lawrence has the hots for Liam Hemsworth, while Josh Hutcherson has his eyes on her

A new 60-second TV spot for “Hunger Games” sequel “Catching Fire” stresses that Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is balancing more than just a victory tour and training for the Quarter Quell — she's stuck in the middle of a love triangle between Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth).

The latest preview of Lionsgate's upcoming blockbuster, however, suggests Katniss is leaning more toward Gale, even if he's playing hard to get.

“Are you coming to the train station?” Katniss asks.

“I think you have enough people saying goodbye without me there,” Gale responds.

Coldplay's single “Atlas” plays throughout the promo for the Nov. 22 release, which Francis Lawrence (“I Am Legend”) directed.

Lenny Kravitz, Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci and Woody Harrelson reprise their roles in the second adaptation from Suzanne Collins’ young adult novel series, while Jena Malone, Sam Claflin, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jeffrey Wright make their debut in the franchise.

    Did we even watch the same tv spot?

    As a reporter, you should not project your own feelings on the piece.
    Katniss does not demonstrate a romantic interest in Gale in this trailer. Perhaps you think he's attractive, and that's great, but it seems rather clear that she is scared.
    And none of it was “awkward”. It was beautiful. And I'm stoked as hell.
