Watch: Jennifer Lawrence Hits You With Her Best Shot; Katniss Kills Everyone

Catching Fire
Considering “The Hunger Games” was one of the most overrated of the well-received tentpoles of 2012, never in my wildest dreams would I ever think the sequel, 'Catching Fire' would be favorably compared to “The Empire Strikes Back.” Or at least in Todd Gilchrist’s review of ‘Catching Fire’ he called it the ‘Empire… of YA adaptations.” Not too shabby.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Francis Lawrence is a filmmaker I typically associate with bland proficiency, but “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” – which honestly required nothing more than that to be considered successful -- is something truly remarkable. Easily the most sophisticated and thoughtful franchise film of 2013, Lawrence’s adaptation of the second novel in Suzanne Collins’ young adult series is all-things-to-all-people entertainment, a follow-up that intensifies the first film’s thrills while simultaneously developing its characters, and even more crucially, expanding its themes. The rare sequel that surpasses its predecessor, “Catching Fire” tackles head-on the repercussions of the events of “Hunger Games,” deepening Collins’ cinematic mythology even as it proves that teen-lit is more than capable of tackling complex ideas.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Lest you think Lionsgate is not covering every possible base when it comes to "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," part of the blanket marketing campaign includes a tie in sandwich at Subway. Yes, really. Nothing like a dystopian saga about the 99% under the foot of the 1% to really have you hankering for a horse-meat and plastic-cheese footlong, but I digress. The bottom line is more stuff from the 'Catching Fire' whirlpool of stuff that they want you to see before the movie has arrived, so strap in your eyeballs.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
‘In every scene we asked ourselves, ‘How would these people feel if they came back to the Hunger Games?',” producer Nina Jacobson told EW recently regarding the mission of respecting the heart of author Suzanne Collins’ sequel, "Catching Fire." “What happens when you come back from these experiences of war, not what happens in a movie when you’ve kicked a lot of ass?” In the case of Katniss and Peeta, they come back from the initial "Hunger Games" as heroes, but not for long.
