Sam Claflin: Shirtless Finnick Photo from 'Catching Fire'!

Sam Claflin goes shirtless as his character Finnick Odair in this brand new still from his upcoming film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!

In the scene in the book, the 27-year-old actor’s character is seen basically in the nude while interacting with Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), but they had to tone it down for the movie.

“They did have to tone it down from what it is in the book because they can’t make it too graphic if you know what I’m saying,” Sam previously told EW. “Because it was just a knot covering his, basically, you know what I’m saying! I was definitely prepared to do anything. But the costumer said ‘Well we can’t have you in nothing’ so I’m kind of covered up.”

If you haven’t watched it yet, check out the full-length trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, in theaters November 22!

    Awful, just awful. He looks like a 90′s boyband reject. I think he is normally rather cute, maybe not hot, but cute enough and here he not only doesn’t look swoon-worthy, he looks repulsive I’d say. He looks like the kind of guy who spends hours at the gym and is in love with himself but surprisingly for him, the women don’t find him attractive. Not a good look for Finnick.

    Well people complained about Josh the last time and then panties drowned anyway It will surely happen again. Stop playing hard to get, you know you will fall for Finnick, you already are in love with him like everyone who read the books and want him to be your boyfriend, and that includes all straight dudes who enjoyed the novels.

    Plus, that pic is from we know what chapter, so the look kind of fits the event even if you are not happy with the casting. Things could have been worse, they could have cast Dakota Fanning.

    Still, the fact he’ll be wearing more than a knot is a huge disregard to the spirit of the book, much like Peeta’s fever from the first movie. Whatever happened to artistic integrity?
