"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" movie quotes bring a second installment in "The Hunger Games" trilogy to theaters. The sequel was directed by Francis Lawrence using a screenplay by Simon Beaufoy and Michael Arndt based on the novel "Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins. "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" opened in standard theaters and IMAX on November 22, 2013.

In "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," the events pick up after the first "The Hunger Games" film following when Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) win the 74th Hunger Games. Katniss and Peeta, who are being portrayed to the public as this power couple, embark on a victory tour during which the format for the 75th Hunger Games is announced. As it's a big milestone for the Games, the competitors will all be former victors, Katniss and Peeta included.

This time however the stakes are higher for Katniss. President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) are determined to make sure Katniss is killed which would in turn dash the hope she gave to the residents of her district. Katniss however knows that her family is at risk should she fail to participate, creating a very tricky situation. Katniss is forced to fight not just for her safety but for the hopes and dreams of the districts and for her family's safety.

Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci and others reprise their roles in this highly anticipated science-fiction adventure movie.

If one "Hunger Games" was enough for you, there's plenty else to see in theaters such as "Nebraska," "Sunlight Jr.," "Last Vegas," "Ender's Game, "The Counselor," "Bad Grandpa," "Escape Plan," "The Fifth Estate," "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Machete Kills," "Runner Runner," "Don Jon," "Rush, "Prisoners,", "Enough Said," "The Family," and "Riddick,".
