IMAX Corporation and Lionsgate have announced that the follow-up to the enormously popular YA phenomena, “The Hunger Games,” now titled “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” will be released in IMAX on November 22, 2013.

Director Francis Lawrence will be using IMAX cameras to capture some of the more vivid and crucial moments in the story that sees Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen, Liam Hemsworth’s Gale Hawthorne and Josh Hutcherson’s Peeta Mellark in an expanded depiction of the country of Panem before Katniss and Peeta must reenter the brutal death games.

Meanwhile, Paramount Pictures plans to release director J.J. Abrams highly anticipated “Star Trek 2” in IMAX 3D on May 17, 2013.

Abrams had the following to say in a press release:

"We were so thrilled with the creative results of shooting IMAX for 'Mission: Impossible' that we jumped at the chance to use the format for 'Star Trek.' All expectations were exceeded -- the action and resolution is insane at this scale. We cannot wait for audiences to see the crew of the Enterprise in a way they never have before."

Returning to their posts on the Enterprise are John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, and Anton Yelchin. They are joined by new cast members Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
