The second installment in the franchise, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire scored even better than the original at the box office and with critics.
Based on the second book in the novels by Suzanne Collins, the science-fiction movie continues the story of reluctant heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: First Class), who’s now on a victory tour after winning the Hunger Games in the first film. This time, she has to go through the deadly games again, with even higher stakes as rebellion is sparked in the outer lying districts of the dangerous Capitol.
Josh Hutcherson (Red Dawn), Woody Harrelson (Seven Psychopaths), Liam Hemsworth (The Expendables 2), Donald Sutherland (The Eagle Has Landed), Lenny Kravitz (Lee Daniels’ The Butler), Stanley Tucci (Jack the Giant Slayer) and Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect) all return in their roles, and additions to the cast include Philip Seymour Hoffman (Moneyball), Amanda Plummer (Small Apartments), Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) and Jena Malone (Sucker Punch).
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire grossed a whopping $420.1 million in U.S. theaters and more than $850 million worldwide. It was the number one movie in 2013 and is the 12th highest-grossing film of all time at the domestic box office.
The action adventure comes to DVD and Blu-ray with these special features:
- deleted scenes
- audio commentary with director Francis Lawrence (Watching for Elephants) and producer Nina Jacobson (One Day)
- a sneak peek of Divergent, another movie based on a popular young adult science-fiction novel
- and a downloadable digital copy of the movie via UltraViolet.
The Blu-ray/DVD Combo adds the nine-part feature-length documentary “Surviving the Game: Making Catching Fire.”
