The second installment in the hit Hunger Games trilogy will be available on illico starting at midnight, March 7, 2014, the same day it is released on DVD. Hunger Games: Catching Fire, distributed in Québec by Les Films Séville, was number one at the Québec box office in 2013.
Hunger Games survivors Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark from District 12 have to make the Panem television audience believe they are still in love, even though Katniss is enamored of her old friend Gale Hawthorne.
Facing mounting defiance, president Snow brutally cracks down on dissent and decides to hold a Quarter Quell, in which past Hunger Games victors, including Finnick Odair and Johanna Mason, must compete. Katniss and Peeta will therefore have to fight again even as the rebellion is brewing.
