As The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premieres across the world, the sequel to the 2012 adaptation of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games looks set to outperform its predecessor at the box office.

With a massive budget and a returning cast of superstars, the movie delves once more into Collins' teen fiction post-apocalyptic universe to reunite with Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Haymitch and the others as the Districts of Panem rise up in rebellion after the 74th Hunger Games victory.
