Catching Fire: See Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson in Quarter Quell Posters From Hunger Games Sequel

Hunger Games: Catching Fire Lionsgate

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is getting ready to blaze into theaters this fall.

And to stoke the flames of fandom, a new pack of posters has been released trumping the film's strapping leads as they gear up for battle.

In this first collective glimpse of the sequel's competitors, we see the tributes—led by Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson's Peeta Mellark—all suited up as they prep for the famed Quarter Quell.

The tournament earned its name because it's held every 25 years and features victors from previous Games—a greatest-hits, all-star edition, if you will, as the ruthless combatants duel to the death.

Among them are Finnick (Sam Claflin), Johanna (Jenna Malone), Wiress (Amanda Plummer) and Cashmere (Stephanie Leigh Schlund)—all wearing sleek black-and-gray bodysuits.

The athletic getups are quite the departure from the last glimpse we got of the saga's stars.

In a series of elaborate "Capitol Portraits," the film's actors—including Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Woody Harrelson and Stanley Tucci—are primped in ornate designer duds. (Only Liam's Hemsworth's blue-collar drone Gale Hawthorne seems to have missed the couture express.)

During an interview on Ryan Seacrest's radio show in June, Hutcherson gave fans a preview of what they can expect from the postapocalyptic sequel.

"On this movie, the story kind of opens up a lot," the actor said. "I think there's a lot more interesting plots that start to develop and everything thickens. We up the overall feel of the movie."

He also played coy when it came to dishing on Katniss and Peeta's relationship, which he only said audiences will "be very satisfied with."

The first Hunger Games far surpassed expectations when it opened in 2012, drumming up a massive $686 million worldwide and setting the bar high for upcoming installments in the big-screen adaptation of author Suzanne Collins' popular YA trilogy.

That film was helmed by Gary Ross, who—in a shocker of a shake-up—dropped out of directing Catching Fire, citing the film's tight shooting schedule as the reason for his departure. Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) eventually stepped in to take the reins.

Catching Fire arrives in theaters on Nov. 21.
