The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Katniss is in panic mode.

A new clip of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has premiered on the film's Facebook page and shows Jennifer Lawrence's bow and arrow-wielding heroine filling Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) in about her actions, which apparently have put her and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) in a very dangerous situation.

"I never meant for anyone to get killed. He has to know that," a teary-eyed Katniss tells her middle-aged mentor, regarding President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

She then recounts a visit the dictator of Panem paid her.

"He's worried about rebellion in the districts. He thinks that [the people] don't believe our love story," she adds.

Catching Fire picks up where the first movie left off, with Snow sending Katniss and Peeta being on a victory tour after the two won the Hunger Games. However since they broke the rules to do so, their popularity has soared among the oppressed masses, prompting the nation's tyrannical ruler to hatch a devious plot to get rid of them.

Hence, anyone watching this sneak peek can understand Katniss' nervousness about continuing on the excursion which Snow has planned.

"Please, please. Just help me get through this trip. Please just help us get through this," she begs Haymitch.

The latter, however, gives her a reality check.

"Wake up. This trip doesn't end when you get back home. You never get off this train," Haymitch tells them. "You two are mentors now. From now on you're job is to be a distraction. So people forget what the real problems are. "

Of course, Katniss and Peeta will soon learn what Snow has in store for them when he returns them to the arena to compete in the Quarter Quell, a competition that happens every 25 years pitting past winners against each other in a fight to the death.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters Nov. 22.
