The action sequences for The Hunger Games weren’t necessarily the best mostly because of the shaky camera scenes and jarring transitions. Hopefully director Francis Lawrence can learn from those mistakes and create a more fluid action sequence that is easier on the eyes. Lawrence is currently overseeing production for the film and as it gets closer to wrapping up shooing, one of the film’s stars, Josh Hutcherson, is speaking out about what we will see and how it will look on IMAX.
We’ve recently learned that some of the film’s action sequences will be shot using IMAX cameras. The success of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and the final two films of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy has set a trend for blockbuster films to use the technology in its rawest form.
Speaking to MTV News, Hutcherson said that they built an actual cornucopia and that it is amazing. When describing how the spokes came out, Hutcherson said that it looked “incredible.” He also said he has already seen come CGI renderings and that they looked really great. When talking about what we would see in IMAX, Hutcherson said:
“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.”
Watching action sequences being played out in IMAX is breathtaking and one of the best parts about the experience. So watching a battle royale on the massive screens will be something that audiences will surely be talking about after the film.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens in theaters on November 22, 2013.
