Watch the 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' trailer everyone is talking about

The official trailer for the second film installment of the popular series, The Hunger Games, dropped Saturday at Comic-Con in San Diego.

Jennifer Lawrence returns as heroine Katniss Everdeen, who in the wake of her recent victory at the last Hunger Games has also awakened whispers of revolution in District 12 and beyond. Co-stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Lenny Kravitz are among the castmates featured in the clip.

The Associated Press reports more than 6,000 fans showed up to watch the trailer and listen to the film's stars discuss the dynamics of the movie. On the stunts performed for the film, Lawrence says the hardest one is "still just basic running." The actress told the room she has a running coach for the film series, but still runs "weird."

In the series, Katniss and Games partner, part love-interest Peeta Mellark are forced back to the "fight-for-your-life" annual sporting event as part of a "special edition" 75th annual Hunger Games. The event, orchestrated by the government and the evil President Snow, has previous winners from each district fight each other. "This year, you're dealing with all experienced killers," says one person.

The preview offers plenty of excitement and drama for viewers who enjoyed the first flick.

The film hits theaters Nov. 22.
