The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Other mistake: The old man executed in District 11 was shot in the head from behind. However, when Katniss looks out the window from above there are no blood stains on the floor, nor is there a gunshot wound to the head. (00:20:50 - 00:22:30)

Other mistake: While Katniss and Johanna are unreeling the wire on the way to the beach, it snags (or is deliberately pulled) behind a rock and Katniss tugs on it till it snaps. The wire was coming off a spool and becoming caught up would have no effect on how the wire unreeled, because the spool would keep on turning regardless. In fact, a taut wire behind her would be what she wanted. (02:05:35)

Continuity mistake: Prim's cat from the first movie is black and white. In this movie, it is orange. (00:04:30)

Audio problem: When the group is discussing why the Careers aren't on the beach, Beetee asks what happens at midnight and Katniss replies that the lightning strikes the tree. Beetee then says "Here's what I propose", but neither his mouth or jaw moves along with the line. (01:58:25)

Continuity mistake: In the training centre, after Brutus throws the spear and after Katniss has shot arrows at the enemies made of orange light (when the shot pans out) the weapons they used have disappeared and are not on the ground. (00:59:10)

Liam D

Continuity mistake: Just as Katniss is preparing to go on stage with Caesar, Joanne speaks to her backstage just as Katniss starts walking out. However from the view of the audience, Joanna is up on the platform with the other tributes. (01:10:30)

Continuity mistake: When they bring the old man from District 11 to the front of the crowd to be shot down, after Katniss is dragged back inside the building, the old man turns his head to the right, to face the crowd. In the next shot, he's suddenly looking straight forward. (00:20:45)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When the spool of wire snags, the cable is running from the left hand (screen right) side of the spool. Camera changes and now the wire is running from the right hand (screen left) side of the spool. Despite the fact the wire is stuck and won't move. (02:00:35)

Audio problem: When Plutarch tell Katniss she has 10 minutes to show her skills, the audio doesn't match his mouth. This is not due to him being behind a force field, as demonstrated earlier in the film. (01:04:50)

President Snow: Her entire species must be eradicated.
Plutarch Heavensbee: Her species, sir?
President Snow: The other victors. Because of her, they all pose a threat. Because of her, they all think they are invincible.

More quotes from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Question: Exactly how is Peeta pretending that he and Katniss are having a baby supposed to get them to cancel the games?


Answer: Peeta knows that he and Katniss are Capitol favorites and that their fans have been enthralled by their (fake) romance. By announcing their bogus elopement and a faux pregnancy, he is attempting to win over peoples' sympathy in hope they will demand that the games be halted in order to protect the "unborn child." People generally have more empathy when infants and small children are involved, though his attempt was unsuccessful.
