Francis Lawrence takes over from Hunger Games director Gary Ross for the sequel, which begins with Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) on a "Victory Tour" following their triumph in the first film.
Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks are among the other returning cast, while Sam Claflin and Jena Malone join the cast as new tributes Finnick Odair and Johanna Mason.
Philip Seymour Hoffman also appears as new Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee.
It was announced last year that the film's arena sequences have been shot using IMAX cameras.
Francis Lawrence will also direct final instalment The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, which will be divided into two films to be released in November 2014 and 2015.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be released on November 22.
