The first official image from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been released.

The still, which appears at the top of this article, was unveiled on Entertainment Weekly's Facebook page. It shows Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss being approached by Finnick Odair, a possible love interest played by British actor Sam Claflin.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the sequel to last year's The Hunger Games, an adaptation of the first novel in a trilogy by author Suzanne Collins. The film grossed over $686million (£428million) worldwide, becoming the ninth highest earner of 2012.

The sequel, once again based on a Collins novel, began shooting last September (2012) in and around Atlanta, Georgia before moving to Hawaii for beach and jungle scenes. Production wrapped on December 22.

The sequel also stars original Hunger Games cast members Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Lenny Kravitz, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks and Stanley Tucci. Meanwhile, Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman has joined the cast as Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is scheduled for release on November 22, 2013.
