Aka: Catching Fire
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire can be described as stylized, clever, and bleak. The plot revolves around a future dystopia, young heroes, and survival. The main genres are sci-fi, drama, and action. In terms of style, it features an all-star cast and stars a strong female character. In approach, it is serious. It is based on a book. It has received attention for being a blockbuster, critically acclaimed, and an award winner. It is well suited for teens. Note that it involves violent content.
Six months after winning the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and her partner Peeta Mellark must go on what is known as the Victor's Tour, wherein they visit all the districts, but before leaving, Katniss is visited by President Snow who fears that Katniss defied him a year ago during the games when she chose to die with Peeta. With both Katniss and Peeta declared the winners, it is fueling a possible uprising. He tells Katniss that while on tour she better try to make sure that she puts out the flames or else everyone she cares about will be in danger.
Na haar overwinning in de 74ste Jaarlijkse Hongerspelen met haar metgezel Peeta Mellark is Katniss Everdeen veilig naar huis teruggekeerd. Deze overwinning betekent echter dat ze opnieuw weg moeten en hun familie moeten achterlaten om op een 'Overwinningstournee' doorheen de districten te vertrekken. Onderweg merkt Katniss dat een opstand op til is, maar de Hoofdstad is nog steeds aan de macht wanneer President Snow de 75ste Jaarlijkse Hongerspelen voorbereidt - een wedstrijd die Panem voorgoed kan veranderen.
