Whatever Katniss Everdeen thought her victory meant in The Hunger Games, she's finding out she was mistaken in a brief new clip from the upcoming sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Peter Travers Picks This Fall's Must-See Movies

As Katniss, played by Jennifer Lawrence, pleads for help from previous victor Haymitch Abernathy (played by Woody Harrelson), he has some bracing words for the novice winner and her would-be beau, Peeta Mellark (played by Josh Hutcherson). "You never get off this train," Abernathy says. "You two are mentors now. Your job is to be a distraction so people forget about what the real problems are."

The real problems will get plenty of attention when The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens in theaters on November 22nd. The first film, which Peter Travers said "radiates a hot, jumpy energy that's irresistible," has grossed more than $680 million worldwide since it opened in March 2012.
