Sure, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth are charming as all get out on the red carpet.

But what the heck is their movie all about anyway?

Before you go see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, here's everything you need to know… in GIFs!

Every year, the central government of Panem rounds up a boy and girl tribute from each of the 12 districts, and they fight to the death for the audience's amusement.

Ostensibly, this is to signify some kind of treaty made after a rebellion was put down, but mostly it's like a warped version of reality TV. Er, MORE warped.

Our hero is Katniss Everdeen, who volunteers to fight in the Hunger Games so her kid sis doesn't have to.

Katniss' male counterpart from District 12 is Peeta Mellark. He TOTES wants to give our archer heroine a shaft of his own!

BUUUUT back home in District 12 there's this totally hot guy named Gale who recently broke up with Miley Cyrus and might be ready to settle down.

Unfortunately before Katniss decides which guy will be ever in her, uh, favor, she has to survive the games! She wins the crowd over with her fashion sense,

wartime romance,

and sororal friendship with the adorable Rue.

When the beloved Rue dies, everyone watching begins to riot!

To avoid a full-on revolution, the game producers try to quell the audience's anger by allowing Katniss and Peeta to BOTH survive.

The malevolent President Snow does NOT like that and becomes determined to get rid of Katniss!

And he'll get his chance because this year is the 75th annual Hunger Games, meaning it's time again for the Quarter Quell! Every 25 years is a MEGA Hunger Games, featuring winners of previous games.

Kind of like Jeopardy!'s Tournament of Champions only with hot warrior dudes like Finnick Odair.

Will Katniss survive? You'll have to go see Catching Fire to find out!

But yeah, there are two more movies. So she's probably going to be OK for now!

    FALSE!

    Only the 75th Annual Hunger Games had the rule of returning victors.

    The 50th featured 4 tributes instead of the usual 2 while the 25th districts voted for the tributes. Get your facts right!

    Incorrect - the quarter quell does not feature previous winners, the 75th games is the first one to do this
