The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Burns Hotter Than Its Predecessor

The consequences of war are far-reaching and come fast in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the sequel to box office juggernaut The Hunger Games. Based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling novels about a teenage girl’s fight against an oppressive, sadistic government, the thrilling Catching Fire brings out strong themes of inequality, the politics of fear, and the psychological impact of battle on people of all ages. Fully engrossing, and far stronger than its forerunner, Catching Fire keeps the sense of suspense throughout with a few dips, and backs up its plot content with plenty of action to hold audience interest. The two-hour-and-fifteen-minute run time hardly feels like it, when you’re swept away by the despotic world of Francis Lawrence’s Panem.

Do not volunteer. There are SPOILERS behind the cut.

With second installment of the Hunger Games film franchise, Catching Fire, only a few months out, it’s about time to start nailing down those characters that remain to be introduced in the third and fourth installments Mockingjay. One of those characters is Alma Coin, and there’s pretty much nothing I can say about her that aren’t spoilers for Mockingjay and Catching Fire, so if you haven’t read the books, you should probably just skip the rest of this post after this next sentence.

According to Deadline, director Francis Lawrence is looking at Julianne Moore to play Coin.
