'Catching Fire' New Movie Photos on Set, Josh Hutcherson Teases Arena Details From Film, IMAX Parts 'Amazing, Very Cool' [VIDEO]
"Catching Fire" filming is underway in Hawaii. New photos recently surfaced, and Josh Hutcherson gave fans something to think about.
In a recent interview with MTV News, Hutcherson (Peeta) teased about what fans should expect from the arena when the film hits theaters in November.
"They actually built a cornucopia in Atlanta that we shot at, and it looks amazing, and the way that the spokes got out, and the way everyone comes up on the pedestals and the water - it looks incredible," he gushed. "I've seen some of the CG renderings that [director] Francis [Lawrence] has worked on, and they look really, really great."
The "Hunger Games" star also talked about which parts of the film will be in IMAX format.
"They're shooting, I think, all the stuff in the arena is going to be IMAX," Hutcherson said. "So when you go see it in IMAX, you'll see the regular movie when we're in the Districts and in the Capitol. When you see us go up in the pod in the games, it will open up into IMAX. It will be amazing. It's very cool."
Lionsgate announced in June that "Catching Fire" would be shot in IMAX for the biggest screens.
Production recently started in Hawaii, miles away from the first location in Atlanta, Georgia. Production is supposed to end in December 2012.
Recent photos surfaced on set from Hawaii. Some of the photos reveal water fight scenes featuring Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss), Hutcherson (Peeta), Sam Claflin (Finnick Odair), and more. You can see Finnick rescuing Peeta from some trouble in the water, as read in Suzanne Collins' book that Peeta is not a good swimmer.
Lionsgate just released a motion poster for the next film adaption, "Catching Fire."
The poster is of the book cover but it is actually moving, unlike the usual posters for a new film coming out. Fans are likely anticipating the film more now.
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is described:
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. 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 prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.
"Catching Fire" releases in theaters on Nov. 22, 2013.
