Lionsgate celebrated this past Saturday THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. At the event cast members Liam Hemsworth, Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin (who will be portraying Finnick Odair in this new installment) joined Director Francis Lawrence for a photo call and party at the Majestic Barrière, along with Producer Jon Kilik, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairman Patrick Wachsberger, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairman Robert Friedman and Producer Nina Jacobson.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (played by 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 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, 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 written by Suzanne Collins that has sold over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be in theaters November 22, 2013.
