The first Hunger Games film was a massive box office success, breaking several records and further proving the viability of YA fiction. Its follow-up, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, is now going for the jugular – with a highly coveted November release date and even more A-list talent to bolster the cast.
Whereas the first Hunger Games feature a lot of world-building and character introductions, Catching Fire will hit the ground running, thrusting audiences even further into a universe rich with political intrigue, all leading up to the announcement of the Quarter Quell. Since The Hunger Games, a lot has changed for the franchise and its cast – most notably Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar win – so there's no reason to think this sequel won't be huge. The only question is how huge.
Check out the trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
