The film begins as Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Hutcherson). 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 (Sutherland) prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games, The Quarter Quell – a competition that could change Panem forever.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is directed by Francis Lawrence, from a screenplay by Simon Beaufoy and Michael DeBruyn, based upon the novel “Catching Fire” by Suzanne Collins and produced by Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik.

Lionsgate has been teasing us lately with new photos posted on The Hunger Games Instagram. Following the photo of the Catching Fire hardcover novel that was posted on Instagram, pages of Catching Fire novel were posted over the next few days.
The clues only started adding up when the highlighted line of the quote “The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand.” was posted before 14th May (US time), the day which Lionsgate promised something big will happen on The Hunger Games Instagram.
On the midnight of 15th May 2013 (Singapore time), Lionsgate revealed a new ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ featuring Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) with the tagline “The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand.”
This new ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ poster follows the same oil painting concept of Capitol Portraits. With Katniss Everdeen standing near the cliff and sun rising, it’s clear Katniss Everdeen be an important figure to Panem citizens in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’.
Fans will no doubt be pleased that an actual line from the Catching Fire novel made it onto the poster, further proving that Lionsgate is planning to stay true to the Catching Fire novel as much as possible.
What do you think of this poster? Do you love it? Do you hate it? Tell us in the comments below!
Lionsgate has launched official The Hunger Games Instagram account. Currently the only photo uploaded was a photo of Catching Fire book as seen below with the caption “Within these pages… #TheSpark. May 14th.”
What will happen on Tuesday, May 14th over at The Hunger Games official Instagram? We are assuming something will occur on Tuesday, May 14th (US time) or Wednesday, May 15th (Singapore time).

After several months of drought, we are finally seeing lots of new “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” photos today.
The latest photo to surface is a behind the scene photo where “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” director Francis Lawrence is seen mingling with Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne) and Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen). Judging by their attire and the setting, it should be a scene from District 12. Francis Lawrence will also direct “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2”.
EW Reveals Five New Stills: Mrs Everdeen and Prim, Plutarch and Haymitch, President Snow, Katniss and Peeta, Gale
It has been a busy day for The Hunger Games fans and media alike. Following the reveal of the latest Entertainment Weekly issue with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) on the cover and a “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” movie still where Finnick gets uncomfortably close to Katniss, we have not one, not two, but FIVE new stills for you to
stare look at.

”These are kids growing up in war who physically, emotionally can’t love somebody,” says Jennifer Lawrence about the uncomfortable triangle between District 12’s battle-weary Katniss, Peeta, and her childhood friend Gale that began in The Hunger Games. ”Katniss thinks she can’t have a crush on a boy because she’s worried about survival every single day. And she can’t be a normal 16-year-old meeting her friend out in the woods and practicing kissing because that’s not the world that they live in.”

”Jen and Liam have amazing chemistry,” says director Francis Lawrence of his young stars. ”They have a nice moment right before Katniss is reaped that is the very first thing we shot. And then when Gale has been brought in from the whipping, that’s another really nice moment they have alone.” ”This is the book where you have to understand the pull Katniss feels to both Peeta and Gale,” say producer Nina Jacobson.
