Lawrence's heroine character tearfully asks Haymitch for help after recounting her encounter with President Snow.
The first clip for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" sees Katniss panicking. "I never meant for anyone to get killed, he has to know that," she sobs, before explaining to a confused Haymitch, "[President] Snow. He came to see me. He's worried about rebellion in the districts."
Peta who was also clueless frustratedly says, "You should have told me that before I went out there and tried to give these people their money," to which Katniss tearfully replies, "I'm sorry. I didn't know what to do." She then turns to her mentor and pleads, "Please, just help me get through this trip."
But Haymitch doesn't seem to help much as he tells his two young proteges, "This trip doesn't end when you get back home. 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 second movie, due in the U.S. on November 22, begins after Katniss returned home safely after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts.
Along the way, Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell), where she and Peeta are thrown back to the arena to face off past victors.
Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson are back as Katniss and Peeta respectively. Liam Hemsworth also returns as Katniss' childhood friend and Peeta's love rival, Gale. Woody Harrelson reprises his role as Haymitch and Francis Lawrence serves as the director.
The clip was released exclusively on Facebook to mark Global Fan Day where the director and the cast sat down with lucky fans for Google+ Hangout. Lawrence at one point recalled her painful experience of filming the movie, "I went deaf in one ear for two and a half weeks. I had a double ear infection, because I had to keep diving into the water."
