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.
