Some Katnisses are born great, some Katnisses achieve greatness, and some Katnisses have greatness thrust upon them.
The heroine at the center of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire may seem to fall under the first category – but she sees herself as a member of the third. As the Girl on Fire tells her oldest friend Gale in this first uninterrupted clip from the film, she never intended to become a revolutionary leader. All Katniss Everdeen really wants is to ensure the safety of her family and loved ones.
Unfortunately, the restless, downtrodden citizens of Panem have other plans for her. And Gale is serving as their mouthpiece: “You haven’t hurt people, Katniss – you’ve given them an opportunity. They just have to be brave enough to take it.”
Catch the clip below, as presented by Liam Hemsworth on Tonight Tuesday. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire blazes into theaters Nov. 22.
