The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was the highest grossing film of 2013, the first female-fronted movie to do so in four decades. Now that it has hit the home video market, you can bet it’s going to move a ton of units there, too. To accompany the Blu-ray/DVD/VOD/streaming/what-have-you release, a ton of new stuff from the film has been surfacing, including this deleted scene and a collection of four behind the scenes stills from production.
This video, from MTV, starts off with some funny back and forth between Sam Claflin, who plays the hunky former tribute Finnick Odair, and Jenna Malone, who plays the cold, vicious Johanna Mason, another previous winner of the Hunger Games. Like with any literary adaptation, there are going to be scenes that are cut out, either in the scripting process, or they are filmed, but left on the cutting room floor. Most of Mason’s scenes made their way into the finished product, which already brushes up against the two-and-a-half hour mark. Apparently Claflin wasn’t so fortunate, which is where this clip comes from.
