The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Catching Fire's IMAX shots are cool, says Josh Hutcherson

Not hot though. That would've been too damn marketable.

Now that production for The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire has caught fire, little details are slowly going to slip out. Namely, how it's going to fix the problems the original had with IMAX...or not. By the sounds of this choice quote from Josh Hutcherson (during an interview with MTV), the IMAX scenes might be a little much:

They're shooting, I think, all the stuff in the arena is going to be IMAX. So when you go see it in IMAX, you'll see the regular movie when we're in the Districts and in the Capitol. When you see us go up in the pod in the games, it will open up into IMAX. It will be amazing. It's very cool.

I admit this is very little to go on, but this does deserve some speculation. When Alec wrote his initial essay about the camerawork for the first Hunger Games, he noted that the, arena scenes especially, were just far too busy. If they do shoot the every arena scene, or even just a few, in IMAX and then switch to a standard camera for scenes outside of that arena, the whole thing is just going to hurt everyone's eyes forever. 

Then again, Hutcherson could have no idea what he's talking about. If that's the case, we have no reason to worry.
