The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer has been released.

It was debuted during the MTV Movie Awards at the weekend but can now be seen online at thehungergamesexplorer.com.

In the promo, Jennifer Lawrence can be seen taking up the lead role of Katniss Everdeen again in the second of The Hunger Games trilogy.

Based on the books by Suzanne Collins, the story follows Jennifer's character Katniss who takes her younger sister's place in a televised fight to the death which teenagers from the 12 districts of Panem are chosen to take part in.

In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Katniss and her co-fighter Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) are made to fight again in the most dangerous contest of all, the Quarter Quell.

In this second film President Snow (Donald Sutherland) tries to quash attempts at revolution with advice from his new Games master (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to make all past winners fight again in the Quarter Quell, throwing Katniss back into danger.

The trailer shows director Francis Lawrence has stuck closely to the style of the first film and gives us a taste of Philip Seymour Hoffman's performance as the menacing Plutarch Heavensbee.

Other cast members include Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Sam Claflin, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, Jenna Malone and Toby Jones.

Jennifer Lawrence won two MTV Movie Awards at the weekend for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is set to be released later this year on November 22.
