Fans of the hit Suzanne Collins novels were delighted when they learnt that The Hunger Gameswas being brought to the big screen and they were not disappointed when the movie was finally released. The film was a critical and financial success and the sequel Catching Fire soon got up and running.
Katniss Everdeen and Gale Hawthorne
We now only have a few more weeks to wait before we get to cast our eyes on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and director Francis Lawrence, who took over the reins from Gary Ross, has spoken about the film. Francis says that he has decided to put a lot more focus on the love triangle this time around.
Lawrence was talking to New York Magazine (via The Playlist), when he said, "I felt the love story in general was, um, a bit buried in the first one. I wanted to bring the love story to the surface. And when I say love story, I mean the triangle."
The love triangle
With those of you unfamiliar with the books, or the first movie, the love triangle is between KatnissEverdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and PeetaMellark (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth). The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will open on November 21 in the UK and November 22 in the US.
