Hutcherson's hunger for sequel

Josh Hutcherson has revealed the set of Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire "looks amazing".

The actor is reprising his role as Peeta Mellark for the second movie in the film franchise, based on Suzanne Collins' trilogy about teens forced to battle to the death.

He told MTV: "They actually built a cornucopia in Atlanta that we shot at, and it looks amazing, and the way that the spokes got out, and the way everyone comes up on the pedestals and the water - it looks incredible.

"I've seen some of the CG renderings that Francis (Lawrence, director) has worked on, and they look really, really great."

Josh also said some filming for the eagerly anticipated follow-up will be done on IMAX cameras.

"They're shooting, I think, all the stuff in the arena is going to be IMAX. So when you go see it in IMAX, you'll see the regular movie when we're in the Districts and in the Capitol.

"When you see us go up in the pod in the games, it will open up into IMAX. It will be amazing. It's very cool."
