Things are heating up on Catching Fire!

Production on the highly anticipated sequel to last year's mega-blockbuster The Hunger Games is underway, and new photos have now surfaced of its stars, Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, as they jump back into action as star-crossed tributes-turned-paramours Katniss and Peeta.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire first look at Sam Claflin as Finnick

They're not alone: This time around, they're joined by Sam Claflin, who, after a whirlwind casting search, snagged the coveted role of fellow tribute Finnick.

And, judging by this photo of Katniss and Finnick literally putting their heads together during training, could the two be careening toward an invaluable alliance?

Of course, further complicating things is Gale (Liam Hemsworth, seen here with director Francis Lawrence), who harbors his own feelings for Katniss. Cue the romantic tension!

The Hunger Games grossed a whopping $686 million worldwide, so expect Catching Fire to set the box office ablaze when it opens on Nov. 21.
