Embracing our inner Caesar Flickerman, ComingSoon.net sat down to speak with stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, who play the 74th Annual Hunger Games champions, Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen, aka “The Girl on Fire,” in this week’s much-anticipated The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
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.
In the below interview, Lawrence and Hutcherson discuss their real world “Victory Tour,” working with a new director in Francis Lawrence and even promise that, if you don’t love their new film, they’ll hunt you down.
