Catching Fire, the sequel to the popular novel and movie, The Hunger Games, is being released in theaters November 22nd, 2013. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth will be returning as the main characters, along with new characters being played by Sam Claflin, Stephanie Leigh Schlund, Jeffrey Wright, and Jena Malone.

In the first movie, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) takes her sister’s place in the annual “Hunger Games,” where 24 teenagers are forced to compete for their lives. Catching Fire picks up where The Hunger Games left off, leaving Katniss and Peeta to go on the Victory Tour. However, President Snow hears rumors about a rebellion. Angry and determined to put a stop to this he sends Katniss and Peeta back into the arena along with other past victors for the 75th annual Hunger Games.

Mackenzie Schmidt (12), ready to go to the midnight premiere, is especially excited about Catching Fire.

“Even though there are earlier showings, the midnight movie is more fun. My friends and I are watching The Hunger Games before we leave and we’re going to bring our blankets and wear our pajamas,” she said.

Tickets for the midnight premiere are now on sale, both for standard showings and IMAX. Enjoy the new arena and characters in Catching Fire on November 22nd.

May the odds be ever in your favor.
