ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION One teenage girl and her bow and arrow become a mighty symbol for revolution in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," as Hollywood's reigning young adult franchise goes deeper and darker to explore the impact of violence on a community. "Catching Fire" is based on the second novel in the "Hunger Games" trilogy by author Suzanne Collins, set in the dystopian futuristic society of Panem, where the government forces 24 children to annually fight to the death in a live televised event. In the new film, heroine Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, and her partner Peeta Mellark have returned victorious from the Hunger Games, viewed by the public as star-crossed young lovers who finally get their happy ending. But the much harsher reality sees both dealing with residual trauma from the brutality they suffered and were forced to inflict in the first games. As the annual Hunger Games once again comes around, Katniss and Peeta find themselves back in the arena, their worst nightmare. But this time, their heroic actions from the first games have set off a underground movement for revolution.
