The wait is almost over! In just a few short hours, the biggest movie of 2013, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be available on Blu-ray and DVD. Before you head to your local retailer to pick up this blockbuster, we have an exclusive interview with Donald Sutherland, who plays the nefarious President Snow. This leader of Panem changes the rules for the 75th Annual Hunger Games, which marks the return of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) to the battle arena, in this adaptation of Suzanne Collins's novel. Watch as Donald Sutherland explains one of his favorite scenes from the sequel, and how President Snow relishes the adversarial relationship he has with young Katniss.
Hailed as "a monumental achievement" (The Playlist), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire features a critically-acclaimed cast including Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson (Donald Sutherland), Liam Hemsworth (The Expendables 2), Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson (The People vs. Larry Flynt, 1996), Emmy nominee Elizabeth Banks (TV's 30 Rock), Lenny Kravitz (Precious), Academy Award nominee Stanley Tucci (The Lovely Bones, 2009) and Golden Globe winner Donald Sutherland (Path to War), reprising their original roles from The Hunger Games. The impressive line-up is joined by Academy Award winner Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote, 2005), Jeffrey Wright (Codeblack Films' The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete), Jena Malone (Into the Wild), Amanda Plummer (Pulp Fiction) and Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman).
Based on the best-selling second novel of Suzanne Collins' award-winning trilogy, with a screenplay by Simon Beaufoy and Michael DeBruyn and directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as, against all odds, Katniss and her fellow tribute Peeta have returned home after surviving The Hunger Games. Winning means they must turn around, leaving their loved ones behind and embark on a "Victory Tour" through the districts. Along the way, Katniss senses a rebellion simmering - one that she and Peeta may have sparked. At the end of the Victory Tour, President Snow announces a deadly 75th Hunger Games that could change Panem forever.
