Sam Claflin goes topless in new Hunger Games: Catching Fire image

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has debuted a new image online, and it's one that's likely to have a large proportion of its core audience all of a swoon.

The new image features a shirtless Sam Claflin as former Hunger Games champ, Finnick Odair, a cocky ladies' man with a slightly questionable line in jewellery.

However, Odair will soon be having to ditch the trinkets in favour of his old weapons, as the the 75th Hunger Games are about to rol l around, and this time out, there's a twist.

That's right, Hunger Games 75 is also known as The Quarter Quell, where former champions go back into battle once more, putting both Finnick and Katniss squarely back in the firing line. Bummer...

Directed by Francis Lawrence and co-starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will open in the UK on 22 November 2013.
