Josh Hutcherson talks Catching Fire

Filming on Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire has been underway for some time now, and Josh Hutcherson has taken time out to give an update on how things are progressing.

“They actually built a cornucopia in Atlanta that we shot at, and it looks amazing,” says Hutcherson. “The way that the spokes got out, and the way everyone comes up on the pedestals and the water… it looks incredible. I’ve seen some of the CG renderings that Francis [ Lawrence ] has worked on, and they look really, really great.”

Continuing the visual theme, he also dropped a few tidbits regarding the use of IMAX cameras, outlining which parts of the story will employ the technology.

“All the stuff in the arena is going to be IMAX,” says the star. “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.”

Directed by Francis Lawrence and co-starring Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Donald Sutherland, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will open in the UK on 22 November 2013.
