Comic-Con 2013: Jennifer Lawrence On Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Plus our interviews with Hutcherson and the 'other' Lawrence

Since appearing in The Hunger Games, life has changed a lot for Jennifer Lawrence. She's gone from being a critically acclaimed but largely unknown actress to being an Oscar-winner for Silver Linings Playbook and everyone's ideal best mate. As she returns for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, we asked her how things are different on set as a result - and she claims she's transformed her whole value system. Have a look below.

 

This second part of the franchise sees Francis Lawrence (no relation) step into the director's chair in place of Gary Ross, and work closely with author Suzanne Collins in adapting her book for the screen. This time in the dystopian future of Panem, Katniss Everdeen (J. Lawrence) will find herself under pressure to return to the Games arena as rebellion threatens to break out following her defiance last time.

Our Chris Hewitt also spoke to Francis Lawrence; Josh Hutcherson, who plays her fellow competitor Peeta; Jena Malone, a newcomer as former Games winner Johanna and Willow Shields, who plays Katniss' little sister Primrose.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is out on November 21 this year, and will be followed by the two-part finale Mockingjay in the next two Novembers.
