UPDATE: Official 'Catching Fire' title art, synopsis and casting page revealed

It has been officially announced by Lionsgate through a press release earlier today that actor Philip Seymour Hoffman will be playing the role of Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. But it looks like that's not the only new Catching Fire stuff that we got.

Lionsgate also launched a new webpage (domain) called, a site linked to the official The Hunger Games Facebook Page, which not only contains an organized set-up for future casting announcements, but also showcases the first title art for the film with the official title, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The press release also included the first synopsis for the film sequel. Read it below:
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. 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) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
