'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is released this year and actress Jennifer Lawrence took to the Hall H stage at Comic Con to talk about the upcoming sequel.
Jennifer Lawrence was greeted by wild screams as she and cast mates took to the Comic-Con stage to tell fans about their new movie; the sequel to 2012's The Hunger Games that saw her character Katniss Everdeen compete in and jointly win a televised battle top the death in post-apocalyptic nation, 'Panem.' Speaking about her character Everdeen's evolution from the first film, Lawrence explained, "She's struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder after the games while living in Victor's Village, where she never wants for food, and feels useless. She's adapting to a new life."

Despite the dark tone of Suzanne Collins' novels and adapted movies, the mood was jovial amongst The Hunger Games Comic-Con panel, as the stars bantered with each other and exchanged funny stories from filming. "The kissing scenes are going to be really hot, if you're into snot," laughed Lawrence, as she described how a resuscitation scene between her and co-star Josh Hutcherson got sticky: "There was all this snot coming out of my nose and when I had to kiss Josh it went in his mouth and then I coughed and I wobbled it," as reported by The Guardian.
