Though cast members from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will likely take some time to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow, many are already heading to Hawaii ahead of filming, which is expected to begin there next week.
Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss in the franchise, was spotted hopping a flight from LAX to Hawaii on Tuesday. Filming on Catching Fire wrapped up in Atlanta recently, and Lawrence has been busy promoting her new movie Silver Linings Playbook.
Her co-star Josh Hutcherson has also been on the promotional circuit for his new movie, Red Dawn. No word yet on when he’ll arrive in Hawaii.
Catching Fire is expected to begin shooting in Oahu early next week, before wrapping completely by the end of the year. Crews have been filming in Atlanta and surrounding areas since early September.
Meanwhile, Lionsgate released the official animated movie poster for Catching Fire yesterday, and announced a contest for twelve fans to be featured in the film’s credits. Tomorrow marks exactly one year until the movie’s release date: November 22, 2013.
