The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Catching Fire Poster

Based on the bestselling Young Adult novels, ‘Catching Fire’ picks up after the events of ‘The Hunger Games,’ which saw Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) winning the 74th annual Hunger Games, a brutal, fight-to-the-death competition. Now, as the two victors set out on the Victory Tour across all 12 Districts of the dystopic Panem, they’re not out of danger yet. The tyrannical President Snow (Donald Sutherland) comes up with a plan to destroy them and the past victors by pitting them against each other in a new arena with new terrors.

It's that time of the year: time for top 10 lists, time to start gearing up for awards season, and picking the contenders and ensuring we shout their names in all caps from behind our laptops, and a time for critics to champion our favorite movies and performances -- which is why I think it's time to take a look back at my favorite female-centric (and gender politic-centric) films and female performances of 2013.

This weekend saw two films weather the storm perfectly fine and one new release collapse on the starting line.

In one of the biggest holiday weekends of all time, the combined might of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' and 'Frozen' proved that yes, ladies can star in major blockbuster movies.

The “Girl On Fire” set the box office ablaze over the weekend as the Jennifer Lawrence-led ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ burned up and estimated $161 million in domestic ticket sales. It surpassed the opening-weekend number for the original ‘Hunger Games’ film, but fell a bit short of the ‘Iron Man 3’ opening number, which still stands as the highest opening of 2013.

The future of the ‘Hunger Games’ series isn’t in doubt. Long before ‘Catching Fire’ opened, Lionsgate already set the wheels in motion for an adaptation of ‘Mockingjay,’ the third and final book in Suzanne Collins’ YA literary series. And since large chunks of filming on ‘Mockingjay’ have been completed, we know a good deal about the upcoming sequel. Such as …

‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Review

Hunger Games Catching Fire review
Lionsgate

When the closing credits rolled after the original 'The Hunger Games,' I thought to myself "eh, not bad." But I was in no rush to see the follow-up. When the closing credits rolled after Francis Lawrence's 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,' after I was able to collect myself, I was fully prepared to run out and get a mockingjay tattoo. Over my heart. With the phrase, "I will lay down my life for you, Katniss Everdeen, because you are the first and finest true hero of 21st century cinema."
