‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Featurette Takes You “Behind the Frame” of the Arena
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘ is one of the most anticipated films of the year, especially for fans of the original book trilogy. Now that we’re closer to the November 22 release, Lionsgate and IMAX can take you behind the scenes of the film to show you what special surprises await you in theaters.
Starring Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson as the returning Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, ‘Catching Fire’ finds out how exactly the Capitol and the tyrannical President Snow (Donald Sutherland) will react to the “Girl on Fire” becoming a source of hope for the people of Panem. The answer is simple: throw her back into the Hunger Games with a brand-new arena and new pool of tributes, each one a past victor of the Games.
In the new behind-the-scenes (or, rather, “behind the frame”) look at ‘Catching Fire,’ premiering on Fandango, we get a look at not only some of the new cast members, but also the vast jungle- and water-based arena. According to director Francis Lawrence, this environment (shot in Hawaii) will seem even more grandiose to IMAX audiences. Thanks to IMAX technology, as Lawrence’s Katniss emerges out of the transport tube and rises into the arena for the first time, the theater screen will expand to its full size.
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ also features the return of Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz and Stanley Tucci, and features newcomers like Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright and Philip Seymour Hoffman. To get your advance tickets, click HERE.
