“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is the highly-anticipated follow-up to the film adaptation of “The Hunger Games.” The film stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, the heroine of the story who must go back into the horrors of The Hunger Games to fight for her life and, on a much more political scale, the freedom of the districts. Here’s what you need to know about “The Hunger Games”:
“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.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will be directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.”
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” will be in theaters Nov. 22.
