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.

A great behind-the-scenes featurette for The Hunger Games appeared on Entertainment Tonight recently, and the actors — Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Wes Bentley, and Lenny Kravitz — have opened up on their thoughts on the book, how they lobbied for their roles, and how much they (like us) just plain love The Hunger Games.

New Animated Posters For The Hunger Games Feature Cinna’s Famed Gold Eyeliner

Call me a recovering makeup junkie, but one of my favorite tiny details about Suzanne CollinsThe Hunger Games was Cinna’s eyeliner. The Capitol crew were so ridiculously festooned with dyed skin, crazy haircolors, glittery tattoos, etc, all of it making the trips there some of the most interesting parts of the book to read, even the grotesque President Snow. (Especially when contrasted to the bleak and humble Districts.) But Cinna’s lone streak of gold eyeliner stood out for me, and so did Cinna as a character. All of that said, one of the best parts about this series being turned into a movie was seeing how the weirdos in the Capitol were going to be brought to life. We’ve seen a glimpse in the trailers, but now, the movie’s official site has released some animated posters (in the guise of self-referential, silly advertisements), to give us a new look at this colorful bunch.
