It's a good day to be a Tribute.

You see, we've got all the scoop on when and how you'll see the much-anticipated new full-length trailer for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," who will be doing the talking at the San Diego Comic-Con panel later this week, and as if that weren't enough to feed your hunger, we've also got that awesome, exclusive new photo above for you to ogle.

Hey, you're welcome.

Let's start with this new pic. While Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) doing the District 11 salute may imply that they're still on their victory tour of the Districts that followed the conclusion of the 74th Hunger Games, it's otherwise clear that this is a moment from the reaping or, rather, the moment where they must accept that they're going back into the Arena.

Of course, this didn't come as a huge surprise. Once it was announced that former winners would be entering the Quarter Quell – the special Arena slated for every 25 years – the only question was whether Peeta or Haymitch would be joining Katniss. This image – which also features escort Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) in another outlandish getup – gives us our answer.

How that all goes down, however, we'll leave for the live action, which brings us back to that trailer that's sure to get your blood pumping overtime.

Not surprisingly, it'll be making its debut during that Saturday panel in San Diego. But, if you're not able to head west or don't feel like waiting in that ridiculously long line for Hall H, or you just want to watch it over and over again, you'll be able to see it online first … right here on our hot new "Catching Fire" hub page, where you'll be able to keep checking back for the latest news from now until the movie hits theaters on November 22.

Immediately after the 1:35 p.m. PT debut of the new full-length trailer in Hall H, you'll be able to log onto movies.yahoo.com and watch until your heart's content.

So who will be sitting at that big, long table at the San Diego Convention Center introducing said trailer?

Katniss herself, Jennifer Lawrence, of course! The Oscar winner will be joined by Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, and director Francis Lawrence. And yes, we'll have a full report following the fun.

In other words, set your alarms, bookmark your hub pages, and get ready for a big week of "Catching Fire" news and other goodness.
