Did you see The Hunger Games in IMAX? If you were a fan of that experience, you’ll be pleased to know that they’re doing it again for Catching Fire.

One detail from the first Hunger Games movie that everyone noticed was that the Everdeen cat, Buttercup, was black in the movie. Not orange, as it was in the books. Some were upset, while some shrugged it off, but EVERYONE noticed. Well, in a new uncropped still from a currently unknown magazine, we see that Buttercup has gone through a change!
That’s right! Buttercup is now orange, staying true to the book! Hopefully the cat from the first movie isn’t too upset! What do you think of this change? Should there have been continuity, or is sticking to the books more important? Let us know in the comments!read more

The November edition of Empire Magazine contains a special about Catching Fire, with the cover bearing the image of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. There are two separate covers– the normal Winter Preview cover, and the Limited Edition Collector’s Cover– and both are included below, along with other scans from the magazine.
From the 30 minutes or so that he shows Empire, Francis Lawrence’s take on the Hunger Games has a chillier, bleaker beauty than Ross which bursts with springy greens. It also looks bigger , with desolate landscapes stretching into nothingness, its Panem a lonelier, more forlorn place. “I thought there was a real opportunity to open up the world” says Francis Lawrence. “I didn’t get enough of a sense of place in the first movie. I thought we could grow visually because we were seeing more of the Districts, the Capitol and the whole arena.
“I think one of the rings that made the studio more comfortable was that I’d worked on much tighter deadlines than this” [Francis Lawrence] says when we meet in Catching Fire’s editing suite where with 3 months to go his film seems remarkably complete. “On I am Legend we had a story outline and then we were told we had to be ready to shoot in 12 weeks. to go from just an outline to shooting that movie in 12 weeks in New York with all that involves was a lot tighter than this…. I wouldn’t say it was easy doing this but it was certainly easier than I Am Legend”.
“I was consulted about who the new director would be yes” she says. “but Im not delusional. Im sure that if I’d said I absolutely hated Francis they’d have hired him anyway. Fortunately I think Francis is the smartest decision any studio has ever made”.“I still love playing Katniss and am really looking forward to being her again. There’s honestly no part of it that I’m bored with…” she pauses for a second and then adds, mock furiously, “Actually thats not true. I am so bored with her braid. I keep asking, “Cant I just wear my hair differently? But they keep saying no”.
What do you think of the scans? Are you excited to see what Francis Lawrence has done with Catching Fire?

Is there anything you can see now that you didn’t notice before? I especially love Enobaria’s outfit and the expression on Mags’ face.

Thanks to @IsraeliTribute for the tip!
To keep us excited (and drooling), Entertainment Weekly has released more stills from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. These reveal our first looks at Katniss and Peeta on the Victory Tour and Gale in District 12.
”These are kids growing up in war who physically, emotionally can’t love somebody,” says Jennifer Lawrence about the uncomfortable triangle between District 12′s battle-weary Katniss, Peeta, and her childhood friend Gale that began in The Hunger Games. ”Katniss thinks she can’t have a crush on a boy because she’s worried about survival every single day. And she can’t be a normal 16-year-old meeting her friend out in the woods and practicing kissing because that’s not the world that they live in.”
”Jen and Liam have amazing chemistry,” says director Francis Lawrence of his young stars. ”They have a nice moment right before Katniss is reaped that is the very first thing we shot. And then when Gale has been brought in from the whipping, that’s another really nice moment they have alone.” ”This the book where you have to understand the pull Katniss feels to both Peeta and Gale,” say producer Nina Jacobson.
