We shared photos Saturday from Cannes where Catching Fire’s Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss), Sam Claflin (Finnick), and Francis Lawrence appeared.
Now, red carpet interviews are online where we learn about what’s new in Catching Fire.
The trio couldn’t dive into too many details, but we actually ended up hearing a couple of interesting tidbits about the highly anticipated The Hunger Games sequel.
“Visually it’s a lot bigger this time,” said Jennifer Lawrence. “We get a lot deeper into the Capitol, and Katniss is trying her new life, trying to get her life back together after the Games and suffering from post traumatic stress.”
Added director Francis Lawrence, “My style is a little different in terms of the way that I photograph things and some of the costumes have grown and changed a little bit. It was a fun and I think I bought my own stamp on it but still stayed true to the world that was created.”
Sam Claflin hinted that there were changes made only to benefit the story in a dramatic sense. “There are things that are slighty fabricated only to create a more dramatic moment,” he said.
“I would say there’s very little that’s been taken out,” said Francis. “There are some additional scenes with some of the characters – like with Plutarch and Snow.”
Viewers likely caught the new scenes between Plutarch and Snow in the Catching Fire trailer which debuted last month.
At the end of the interview, Claflin is asked which scene was his favorite to shoot, and the answer was a great one: “I’d have to be giving Josh Hutcherson CPR. My mouth touching his was a beautiful moment, and it’ll live with me for the rest of my life. We’re meant to be together.”
