The second book of The Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire, is now available in paperback. Up until recently, only The Hunger Games was published in paperback. So, if for some crazy reason you don’t already own a copy of this amazing book and happen to love paperback books, good news for you! Or you can gift it to your kids, your wives, and your husbands. Perhaps you can add multiple copies to your own collection! Have it available in every room in your house, car, or workplace to dive into the world of Katniss Everdeen. Paperbacks are also cheaper! It’s really a win-win situation.
You can find it online or at a bookstore near you!
The Latin Times is reporting that William Levy is in talks to star in the upcoming Mockingjay movies. This is one HOT and SEXY man! Which character would he play? (Spoiler Alert) Only Boggs comes to mind for me. How could our sweet Sam Claflin compete with both Liam Hemsworth AND William Levy in Finnick’s underwear scene in Mockingjay?!
This is NOT official and we have no official casting announcement from Lionsgate. As much as we’d all love to stare at William on screen, don’t get your hopes up.
During the Cannes Film Festival, director Francis Lawrence spoke about what to expect from the upcoming Catching Fire movie.
“Lots of new stuff—new cast members, new action, a new arena and a fantastic story,” new “Hunger Games” franchise director Francis Lawrence said. He also revealed that while almost nothing has been excised during the book-to-script transition, fans can expect some entirely new scenes!
“There’s very little that’s been taken out—there’s some additional scenes with some of the characters,” he says, specifically citing new moments between Plutarch (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman) and President Snow (played by Donald Sutherland).
Jennifer Lawrence also spoke up the differences compared to the first movie.
As for how this film compares to “The Hunger Games,” Jennifer Lawrence reveals, “Visually, it’s a lot bigger this time. We get a little deeper into The Capitol as Katniss is trying to get her life back together.

Total Film Magazine has a preview on the upcoming Catching Fire movie. In this preview, Jennifer Lawrence talks about her (lack of) preparation for the second movie.
“If possible, there was even less preparation because I was like, ‘I’ve done this before’,” she said. “We had a lot of the same crew. Josh [Hutcherson] and Liam [Hemsworth] were there. Normally, when I do a movie, I’m meeting people for the first time, so it was amazing to be able to have the same group of people. It was so fun.”
You can read the full article by purchasing the latest issue of the magazine. Check out the preview here.
The final still from Hunger Games Explorer has been released. I could think of no one better to lead us off into the trailer than Effie Trinket – the only reason Katniss and Peeta get anywhere on time.
Friendly reminder that The Hunger Games: Catching Firetrailer will be debuting tonight at the MTV Movie Awards!
