The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh 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 (Donald Sutherland) prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell)—a competition that could change Panem forever. Also starring Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jena Malone, and directed by Francis Lawrence, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is based upon the novel Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, the second in a trilogy that has over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
