"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" begins as Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (played by Josh Hutcherson). 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. "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone. Lionsgate will release "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" on November 22, 2013.

The "2013 MTV Movie Awards" will serve as the official kick off to the Summer Blockbuster season with rising superstar and host Rebel Wilson set to go off and deliver the show's trademark irreverent celebration of the movies, actors and music that audiences love LIVE on Sunday, April 14 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
