THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE is the second in a trilogy based on a novel on which has sold over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone. THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will be in cinemas on November 22, 2013.
The movie begins with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) returning home to District 12 along with fellow winner Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Shortly after returning home, they must embark on a “Victory Tour” of the districts, leaving behind their close friends and family again. On the day of the Victory Tour, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) threatens Katniss’ best friend and pretend cousin, Gale Hawthorne. During the tour, Katniss senses that a rebellion is brewing in the districts, but the Capitol is still firmly in control as Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games, known as The Quarter Quell, an event taken place every 25 years – a competition that could change Panem forever. In this Hunger Games, the tributes will be reaped from the existing pool of victors, making all the other Games look like child’s play.
As Peeta and Katniss end up in the arena again (as the only victors of District 12 with the exception of Haymitch), this time surrounded by experienced and vicious killers, President Snow is determined to eliminate them and destroy the rays of hope and the sparks of rebellions brewing up in the Districts. Now Katniss and Peeta must do whatever it takes to defeat their foes and come out on top once again and ignite the flames of rebellion in Panem.
