The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: burns competitors at box office

Although the movie has only been out for a week, it seems like everyone is talking about it. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, also known as the second installment of the Hunger Games trilogy, is just as popular as expected.

The two main characters are, movie stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark. Also, the remaining characters are the same cast from the first one.

Continuing on from The Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire tells the story after Katniss and Peeta returning to District 12 following their victory of the 74th Hunger Game. As the victors, they need to go on a tour that stops at every district and ends at the capital. Through the trip, Katniss and Peeta find that there are rebellions in districts, and numerous people are treated poorly. The incidents happened also strengthen their hatred towards the capital.

The 75th annual Hunger Game starts, and the special rule for the Quarter Quell makes the past winners go again. With anger and disgust, Katniss and Peeta return to the capital.

As far as relationship goes, it can be seen as a typical love triangle. After getting back to District 12, Katniss and Gale hang out together just like they used to, and still take care of each other. But the experience in the game with Peeta and their high-profile relationship also makes it confusing for Katniss. Knowing that they are going back the game, Katniss wants Peeta to survive this time and even begs Haymitch to protect him by all means. But Peeta loves Kaniss since the beginning and wants her to survive more than he does himself.

If you have already read the book, watching the film is still very exciting. Not only because the storyline is intriguing, but also the visual effects are stunning.
