'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' (November 22)
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Woody Harrelson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Jeffrey Wright
Director: Francis Lawrence ("I Am Legend")
What to watch for: Now that the dopey "Twilight" saga has blessedly come to an end, Lawrence's kickass heroine Katniss Everdeen is free to fill the vampire-sized box office void with an all-around smarter, stronger, sharper brand of Young Adult adaptation. This sequel introduces fan favorite characters Finnick (Claflin) and Johanna (Malone) as well as acting icon Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee.
