Hutcherson reprises his role as Peeta Mellark in this sequel directed by Francis Lawrence. Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark win the 74th Hunger Games and become symbols for revolution, so winners of the previous Hunger Games are assembled for the 75th Hunger Games, known as the Quarter Quell, to bring them back into the ring. Co-starring Jennifer Lawrence, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Liam Hemsworth, and Donald Sutherland. Hutcherson speaks of the romance between Katniss and Peeta.
I think it’s been a really kind of tumultuous, kind of up and down rollercoaster sort of situation. I think their love is far from perfect. Maybe perfect for the movie, but for them I think they could imagine it a lot differently, especially Peeta.
