But before leaving, Katniss is visited by President Snow who fears that Katniss defied him a year ago during the games when she chose to die with Peta. With both Katniss and Peeta declared the winners, it is fueling a possible uprising. He tells Katniss that while on tour she better try to make sure that she puts out the flames or else everyone she cares about will be in danger. But unfortunately she fails to do that. So Snow decides to enact what is known as the Quarter Quell, the right to make a change to the Hunger Games, which he is allowed to do every 25 years. He decides to hold an edition of the Hunger Games wherein previous winners will compete again. Their mentor Haymitch thinks their best chance to survive is form an alliance with some of the others.

In early scenes, Katniss wears an unusual stylized woolen garment. This is apparently a reference to the "talent" for clothing design that Katniss adopts in the book. The Capital requires victors to pursue a "talent", since they don't need to work any more, and Katniss initially struggles since her best real talent is hunting. Then her designer Cinna steps in and supplies her with garments that she can claim to have designed herself. See more »

The Machiavellian President Snow (Donald Sutherland) fears an uprising and he threatens Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) to force her to create a distraction to the Districts with Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson); otherwise he would kill her family and friends. However he plots with Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to summon the winners of The Hunger Games to participate in the Third Quarter Quell that happens every twenty-five years. Each of the twelve Districts would deliver two winners to the game and in the end only one will survive..
Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) advises Katniss and Peeta to form alliances to survive and they team-up with Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) and Mags (Lynn Cohen) in the beginning of the deadly game and the revolution.
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is a great sequel of "The Hunger Games" (2012). The dangerous saga of Katniss and Peeta has a surprising plot point in the conclusion with the scheme for the uprising disclosed by their mentor Haymitch and by another unexpected character. Unfortunately the first part of the sequel will be only in November 2014. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Jogos Vorazes: Em Chamas" ("The Hunger Games: On Fire")
