As of 13th August the 100 day countdown began to the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It's a countdown that fans around the world have eagerly been awaiting including me! I love The Hunger Games and being London based you can guarantee I'll be on the red carpet looking to swoon and squeal with the rest of the teenage fans, its just a shame I'll stick out like a sore thumb being over 30... shocking... right?

LIONSGATE TO UNVEIL THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE WITH WORLD PREMIERE IN LONDON ON NOVEMBER 11, 2013

With 100 days and counting until the November 22 worldwide launch of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the second installment of Lionsgate’s global blockbuster Hunger Games franchise, the Company announced today that it will host a Catching Fire world premiere in London on November 11.

Catching Fire will open day-and-date with its domestic release in nearly every major international territory.  The first Hunger Games film was the 13th highest-grossing North American release of all time on its way to generating nearly $700 million at the worldwide box office.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire stars Academy Award® winner Jennifer Lawrence alongside Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone and Jeffrey Wright, with Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland. 

The film begins as Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Hutcherson). 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 (Sutherland) prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games, The Quarter Quell - a competition that could change Panem forever.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is directed by Francis Lawrence, from a screenplay by Simon Beaufoy and Michael DeBruyn, based upon the novel “Catching Fire” by Suzanne Collins and produced by Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik.
