SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 22 (UPI) -- Lionsgate says "Catching Fire," the second installment of its "Hunger Games" film franchise, is set for a November release on more than 3,000 screens in China.

The film will be available in both dubbed and subtitled prints when it opens in the country Nov. 21.

"'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' has become a truly global phenomenon, and its day-and-date release in this key territory further cements its status as a worldwide motion picture event of epic proportions," Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Patrick Wachsberger and Rob Friedman said in a joint statement Tuesday.

"The release of the first 'Hunger Games' film in China established a strong fan base on which 'Catching Fire' is positioned to build," said Wendy Reeds, executive vice president of content sales and distribution for China's Celestial Tiger Entertainment.

"China has become one of the world's leading box office territories, and the release of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' in China is another major step forward in our distribution of film and TV content in this key market."
