Trivia

Lenny Kravitz was cast for the role of Cinna without auditioning after co-Writer and Director Gary Ross was impressed by his brief performance in Precious (2009). Because most of Cinna's scenes are with Katniss, Kravitz learned as much as he could about Jennifer Lawrence through his daughter Zoë Kravitz, who ... ...


Quotes

Seneca Crane: I think it's our tradition. It comes out of a particularly painful part of our history...
Caesar Flickerman: Yes, yes.
Seneca Crane: ...but it's been the way we're able to heal.


Goofs

During the speech from an instructor before the tributes commence their training, Glimmer can be seen to have a pimple on her right cheek, near her chin. This is gone when she is on with Caesar Flickerman, but it could have been covered with makeup. When Katniss is chased up a tree, Glimmer can be seen without the pimple on her cheek, but she has one on her throat, right under her chin, where she didn't have one before. Then, when she laughs at Cato by the campfire, she has a pimple on her right cheek again.


Crazy Credits

The film opens with a worded passage about the history of the Hunger Games. In the last section, all of the text fades away except for the film's title.


Alternate Versions

A rough cut of the film was submitted to the BBFC in the UK for an advisory screening, a process used by filmmakers to see how likely a film will obtain a certain rating. The BBFC explained a 12A rating would be likely if the violence was toned down. Four scenes were changes, removing bloody violence, threat and a scene of injury. These included the use of alternate footage and the digital removal of blood. When the finished film was submitted to the BBFC for a formal classification, the BBFC stated that more cuts would be needed in order to secure the 12A. Blood splashes were digitally removed from both impacts to bodies and blood on blades of weapons, achieved through the darkening of certain shots and by digitally erasing blood from the image. The BBFC then gave the film a 12A rating for cinema release. This pre-cut version was released on DVD in the UK with a 12 rating. However, the US PG-13 version was submitted to the BBFC for the UK Blu-ray release, which was classified '15' uncut.
