Hunger Games: Catching Fire doesn’t hit theaters until November 22, 2013, but Entertainment Weekly is giving fans an early sneak peek of the highly-anticipated sequel. While I appreciate the images, teasing us like this and having to wait almost an entire year to actually see the film is absolute torture (first world problems).

The publication chose Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin to grace the cover of their 2013 entertainment preview. Claflin who joins the cast as Finnick Odair gives his first interview regarding his high-profile role. He reveals to the mag that taking the role of Finnick was “The scariest moment of my life. I’m on Twitter and so many people have been like ‘Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.’” I wouldn’t take those words lightly if I were Claflin. Some of those Hunger Games die-hard fans are extremely hardcore. Check out another picture below of Katniss and Finnick before the two head off to war.

Jennifer Lawrence also sat down with to discuss life since shooting to stardom. Here’s a quote regarding Hollywood life.

“I’m so aware of all the b.s. that surrounds Hollywood… and how everyone gets on this high horse and thinks that they’re curing cancer and it makes me so uncomfortable every time I see it. So I go in the exact opposite direction and end up saying something like ‘I’m pregnant!’ when I’m in two franchises.’” – Jennifer Lawrence
