New Clip from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" Released

Murray Close/Lionsgate(NEW YORK) -- In honor of "Global Fan Day" earlier this week, a new clip from the highly anticipated sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, was released exclusively on Facebook.

In the scene, Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, is distraught after meeting with Donald Sutherland's President Snow.  The president apparently realized Katniss and her Hunger Games partner Peeta Mellark, played by Josh Hutcherson, could be an inspiration to the districts and cause rebellion.  When she goes to previous Hunger Games victor Haymitch Abernathy, portrayed by Woody Harrelson, for help, he lets her know the hard truth about being a winner of the Hunger Games.

"This trip doesn't end when you get back home," Haymitch tells Katniss and Peeta.  "You never get off this train.  You're a mentor now.  You two are mentors now.  From now on, your job is to be a distraction so people forget what their real problems are."

The Oscar-winning actress was at Facebook to reveal the exclusive scene from the film to hungry fans as well as answer questions.  In the clip, Lawrence's character is crying and the actress joked she needs to practice looking prettier when she tears up.

"I really have to stop squeezing my cheeks," she said after the clip aired.  "That's all I picked up from that trailer."

Lawrence added that she usually tells herself before an emotional scene, "'Oh my God.  You have to find a prettier crying face.  You need to keep it together.'  I'm going to try to do more crying where it's like beautiful tears falling down my face and not changing anything, instead of this face."

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
hits theaters nationwide on Nov. 22.
