If you know who Katniss Everdeen and Peetsa Mellark are, then you’re probably waiting anxiously like all the other “Hunger Games” fans for the second installment in the series. “Catching Fire” picks up right where the first movie left off. Katniss and Peeta are preparing to embark on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts of Panem. Although this means the heroic Tributes must leave their friends and family behind, they reluctantly depart. President Snow and The Capitol are still controlling Panem, but Katniss can sense a brewing rebellion as Snow prepares for a special 75th Annual Hunger Games Quarter Quell that could have long-lasting effects.
“Catching Fire” is premiering all over the world in November. The world premiere is November 14th in London, England. The film is opening in Rome, Italy on November 27, where it will be screened at the Rome Film Fest. Stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth will be on hand for the red carpet gala at the Auditorium Parco della Musica. The U.S. premiere is November 22. Recent reports claim a November premiere for “Catching Fire” in China. The worldwide premieres show how important international box office is to the film’s gross revenues. The film is expected to gross some $900 million, which is nearly $300 million more than the first installment.
Another important element of “The Hunger Games” series is the soundtrack. “Catching Fire” has some heavyweight international talent providing the music bed. German-based ABBY’s song “Again,” “Hombre a la Tierra” by Spanish alternative band Lori Meyers, and Brazilian rockers CPM22 hit “13″ are three tunes that will be featured prominently. In fact, different versions of the soundtrack will be for sale in Germany, Austria, Spain and Brazil. One of these three songs will play during the end credits, depending on where the movie is showing. This is in line with Lionsgate’s desire to make the release a truly global event. Other acts that have cuts on the soundtrack are Christina Aguilera, Sia, Patti Smith, Coldplay, The Lumineers, Imagine Dragons and Lorde.
