Oct 07, 2013

“Every Revolution Begins with a Spark”
An international phenomenon, THE HUNGER GAMES captured the world’s attention and broke blockbuster records in 2012 with the debut of film adaption based on first book in the best-selling series. Fans of all ages cheered as reluctant heroine, Katniss Everdeen, emerged from the 74th Annual Hunger Games as victor, along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark — leaving the world hungry for more! This fall, the franchise returns to the big screen for its second installment — THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as
President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) — a competition that could change Panem forever.
