The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark.  Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts.  Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.  Click here for all the news, images, and trailers for  The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in theaters on November 22, 2013.  For more family movie news, be sure to follow Adventures by Daddy on twitter and “like” our facebook page too.
