With any adaptation, fans will always be on the lookout for which scenes from a book made it into a movie, and which were cut. This was true for Catching Fire, which some are calling the most faithful adaptation they’ve seen! Yahoo! Movies asked staff from various Hunger Games fan sites about their favorite Catching Fire scenes, both the ones which were in the book AND film, and scenes from the book that didn’t make it into the movie. Here’s what Aldrin from Down With The Capitol said:
“I really loved when the Quarter Quell Tributes all joined hands in defiance of the Capitol right after being interviewed by Caesar Flickerman,” said Aldrin Gamos, site administrator for Down With the Capitol. “This wasn’t the first acknowledgment of the rebellion in ‘Catching Fire,’ but it was certainly one of the most powerful and it gave me chills to see it on screen!”
“One scene I noticed didn’t make the film was when Plutarch Heavensbee flashes his watch to Katniss, revealing the Mockingjay symbol to show he’s on her side,” added Gamos. “I can see why they cut this, as this would fly by most people’s heads, and they show later in the movie that Plutarch was always in on the ‘grand plan,’ but it would have been cool to see it in the movie anyway!”
Be sure to check out the full article, which features other great Hunger Games fan sites and their responses! Which scenes from the book that made it into the movie were your favorites? And which scenes that were cut from the movie do you wish made it to the big screen? Let us know in the comments!

This THR interview is really fantastic. Sam Claflin and Jena Malone talk about what is what like joining the franchise and going through their “hazing” period. Jennifer Lawrence said she cried and called Josh Hutcherson while reading the Mockingjay scripts. Poor thing misses Josh’s presence on set! Francis Lawrence says himself and Suzanne Collins saw the war in Mockingjay as a third Hunger Games, so the structure between the movies is almost the same.
