In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.
Twelve months after winning the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and her partner Peeta Mellark must go on what is known as the Victor's Tour, wherein they visit all the districts, 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 Peeta. 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.Written by
It was previously mentioned that Johanna talks to Katniss backstage between their interviews with Caesar when no other Tributes had left the stage after their interviews. However, this explains why Johanna is not in any of the shots while both Katniss and Peeta are being interviewed, but is back on stage after Peeta reveals that Katniss is pregnant. Johanna had gone backstage to fix her dress. See more »
The film's title doesn't appear until the start of the closing credits. As such, this is the only Hunger Games movie where the title of the movie does not appear at the beginning of the film. See more »
Blu-ray Disc versions of the film feature the IMAX scenes in a taller aspect ratio, thus staying more true to the original theatrical exhibition, similar to what was done with the Blu-ray releases for the Christopher Nolan Batman movies. See more »
I enjoyed the first ripoff, but Catching Fire never did. The first 45 minutes or so of this movie should have been boiled down to about 15 minutes, seriously. I grew very weary waiting for something, anything, to happen. We need more BR reenactments and definitely more Liam Hemsworth (who is wasted here). The rest of the movie wasn't much better, and if the next 2 installments follow suit, there's just no point to continue watching these films. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was essentially just a placeholder for the third movie in the series, whenever that comes out. There was not a whole lot of meat, just a lot of subtle plot-building that doesn't resolve at the movie's open ending.
