Exclusive video interview with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence

After receiving its UK premiere last night, the hotly-anticipated sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is set to open in just ten days time, and thanks to Hayley Donaghy, we’ve got an exclusive video interview with director Francis Lawrence, which you can check out below…

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.”


The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is released on November 22nd and stars Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook), Elizabeth Banks (30 Rock), Josh Hutcherson (Red Dawn), Liam Hemsworth (The Expendables 2), Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Master), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Woody Harrelson (Seven Psychopaths), Donald Sutherland (Dirty Sexy Money), Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman), Jenna Malone (Sucker Punch), Lenny Kravitz (Precious) and Toby Jones (Berberian Sound Studio).
