The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a 2013 American dystopian science fiction adventure film based on Suzanne Collins' dystopian novel Catching Fire (2009), the second installment in The Hunger Games trilogy. The film is the sequel to The Hunger Games (2012) and the second installment in The Hunger Games film series, produced by Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik, and distributed by Lionsgate. Francis Lawrence directed the film, with a screenplay by Simon Beaufoy and Michael Arndt. Adding to the existing cast, the supporting cast was filled out with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone, Sam Claflin, Lynn Cohen, Amanda Plummer, Alan Ritchson, and Meta Golding. Filming began on September 10, 2012, in Atlanta, Georgia, before moving to Hawaii. The plot of Catching Fire takes place a few months after the previous installment; Katniss Everdeen and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark have returned home safely after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games. Throughout the story, Katniss senses that a rebellion against the oppressive Capitol is simmering throughout the districts.

Check out this gorgeous dress for the Hunger Games Catching Fire film. The dress is from Alexander McQueen's spring/summer 2011 collection. This film must be a costume designers dream. There is so much imagination and high fashion involved in the capital clothing. I personally love this dress. If I could find a slightly less dramatic version I would so wear it. Interesting to me that the name of these butterflies, Monarch, is also a term used for people in power. Effie doesn't have too much power in the series, but she is from the Capital, the center of power in this futuristic distopia. Source: style.mtv.com

This is a link to the second official trailer for the film. The trailer was recently released at a comic con convention. Have you noticed how protected these trailers have been? and how much hype there is just for the commercials? What a great marketing strategy.

The Capitol wrote on their official Facebook page Friday morning: “PANEM ALERT: President Coriolanus Snow is pleased to announce this year’s Victory Tour, featuring Katniss Everdeen & Peeta Mellark – Victors of the 74th Hunger Games! The Capitol PN demands that all districts prepare accordingly. Inquire with your local district officials for further instructions.”
