Comic-Con has come and gone, leaving a tidal wave of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” excitement in its wake. A new trailer was screened for the crowd in San Diego, before being released online for everyone to see. Now, there’s a new photo of a very shirtless Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin), from a key scene from the movie, his character’s introduction.
The picture shows Finnick offering a sugarcube, his treat of choice, to Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). As for his lack of shirt, Finnick is a swimmer so that’s something that will likely be happening quite a bit in the movie. You know, for fans who track that sort of thing.
Claflin was unable to attend Comic-Con due to his filming a movie in Europe, but he offered a tweet reading, “Guttered I’m not available to join the gang at #SDCC, but I doubt you’ll be disappointed. Plenty enough to look forward to.”
Finnick Odair is a victor from District 4 in the “Hunger Games” universe who becomes an unlikely ally to both Katniss and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). “Catching Fire” will be in theaters November 22.
