Here’s how you can stream each movie:  

The Hunger Games (2012) 

The first Hunger Games film introduced Suzanne Collins’ dystopian world to audiences along with its beloved action hero, Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen before the actress became an Oscar winner months after its release for Silver Linings Playbook. In the blockbuster sci-fi movie, Katniss and Josh Hutcherson’s Peeta Mellark are chosen as the “tributes” for their mining community of District 12 for the 74th Hunger Games. At the games, Katniss and Peeta become reality TV stars who are interviewed, trained and showcased before their tyrannic nation as they are forced to fight the other young people from each District to the death for Panem’s entertainment.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire follows Katniss and Peeta after the District 12 tributes make history and both walk out of the competition alive. As Katniss becomes a symbol for a rebellion igniting across Panem, Donald Sutherland’s President Snow hits them with a curveball: Katniss and Peeta and other previous tributes are going back in the ring for the society’s big 75th games. The sequel is our favorite Hunger Games movie from our ranking. Catching Fire also introduces a number of fan-favorites from the book series, including Sam Claflin’s Finnick Odair, Jena Malone’s Johanna Mason and Jeffrey Wright’s Beetee.
