Some films are just meant to be seen in IMAX, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is one of them. When director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend, Water for Elephants) took over the series, he knew right away that he wanted to shoot the 50-minute arena sequence using IMAX cameras. As Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) ascends in her tube and enters the games, the frame expands vertically to fill the entire IMAX screen. The result is both subtle and startling. You feel like you’re sucked straight into the middle of the arena with Katniss and the other 23 tributes, fighting for your life.
