Josh Hutcherson talks Catching Fire

Reveals which scenes are being shot in IMAX

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.

      I'll admit i've never watched a film that was shot in Imax on an Imax screen (i've only ever watched Batman Begins at an IMAX) so can someone tell me - is it a wholly different thing than just seeing the film a a really big screen? Or is it something you have to see to understand the difference?

      The quality and sound of an IMAX movie is far better than a regular 2D movie. It's like watching a blu ray on a HD tv, the resolution and quality is 100times better. You can see every detail of an actor's face which some have complained about in past. It does depend on the movie in question too cause some movies just because it is in IMAX doesn't mean its going to make a big difference unless it has a lot of CG animation.

      While we're on the topic of the IMAX, do you think The Hobbit is worth seeing at the IMAX?
