All fans of the "Hunger Games" franchise know that the title for the second book in the series is "Catching Fire". However, that will not be the name of the second MOVIE in the series.

Lionsgate (the studio behind the films) has decided to add "Hunger Games" to the title and have announced that the official title for the second film will be "Hunger Games: Catching Fire".

To me, this is a very good idea. Yes, everyone who has read the books knows that "Catching Fire" is the second of the "Hunger Games" franchise, but most of us out here haven't read the books. Adding "Hunger Games" to the beginning of the title makes it clear to everyone that this is indeed the sequel to "Hunger Games".

"Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is scheduled to open in AMC Theatres everywhere on November 22nd, 2013.
