Based on the Novel by Suzanne Collins.

Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Hutcherson) are thrown back into the Hunger Games because it is the 75th anniversary and this Quarter Quell is Special. All the previous winners will be entered back into the draw and those chosen will have to fight again. Katniss gets chosen and then Peeta volunteers. They are being forced to carry on the charade of their love because President Snow does not believe them and thinks that Katniss is dangerous to the capital. I found this movie to be a little repetitive as it is very similar to the first movie. This is fine if you really enjoyed the first movie but for me I thought it dragged in places.
