THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE Headed to IMAX Screens; Director Francis Lawrence to Shoot Scenes in IMAX

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is headed to IMAX screens this November.  It’s not too surprising since an IMAX release is the new norm for blockbuster features.  However, the IMAX announcement for The Hunger Games came much closer to the film’s release date.  Shooting on the sequel isn’t set to begin until fall, but THR reports that director Francis Lawrence will film certain sequences using IMAX cameras.  Having movies blown up for IMAX is fine, but I’m always excited when actual IMAX cameras are being used, and I’m curious to see what Lawrence has in mind for the highly-anticipated sequel.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due out November 22, 2013.  The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz, Donald Sutherland, and possibly Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    Ill have to go into London to see this at the BFI now.
    Just as well the first one was pretty damn good.

    Ive seen every feature with imax scenes so far (didnt bother with tron legacy as it was just rendered to the ratio rather than shot with the cameras)

    TDK (first imax “experience”. action set pieces, establishing shots and cinematography were incredible.

    Transformers 2 (if you are going to see a film like that, go see it on the biggest screen with the loudest sound in the highest quality and worry about heahaches after)

    Mission Impossible 4 (nice to see robert elswit using imax, create set pieces and the burj khalifa stuff was amazing)

    TDKR (next month aparently, waiting for the 55mins of imax as much as the other 2/3rds)

    no confirmation on man of steel yet but star trek 2′s imax and 3d conversion should be interesting.

    but i may well go see cuaron’s gravity there as my first non imax imax visit

    Nice! Definitely seeing it due the IMAX :D

    Does this confirm they’re doing the right thing & shooting on film like the original? I.E. Not going digital 3D.

    One of my biggest concerns has been that Lionsgate has looked at that $400 million box office number & said “But it could’ve been $500 million if it was in 3D!”.

    The first line is factually incorrect. “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is headed to IMAX screens this November.” That should be next November.

    Just coming to here to say what Kevin did above. Next November.
