New Catching Fire Character Portraits in Vanity Fair October Issue
Vanity Fair US has included a Catching Fire spread on their October 2013 issue. Not only is this a very big deal– their October issue will be a special 100th Anniversary issue– but also the spread includes some stunning, brand new pictures of Katniss, Peeta, Effie, Gale and Finnick from their Capitol Portraits photoshoot.
The short piece that accompanies the pictures explains the basics of the plot of Catching Fire, with a quote from director Francis Lawrence about the state of mind of the characters after the first movie:
“One of the big overarching themes for all the books is this idea of the consequences of war, and one of the unfortunate consequences of war is post-traumatic stress. That’s one of the first things you see in the movie. They’re changed people because of having been in the Games.”
Below you can see pictures from the spread thanks to Twitter user @epnebelle. This issue comes out tomorrow (Thursday, September 4th), so be sure to look for it in newsstands! Thanks to Hunger-Games.net for the tip.
