NEWS: Francis Lawrence talks about Maintaining a PG-13 Rating for 'Catching Fire' with BBC News

Francis Lawrence talked to BBC News about any changes that were made in the film in order to maintain the PG-13 rating for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
“We didn’t have too many issues with the ratings board,” Francis Lawrence told the BBC. 
“We had to go back and we cut a couple frames, adjusted some volume, took a little bit of blood out, but it was very little that we had to do.” … 
“We always aim in America for the PG-13,” said Francis Lawrence, who is not related to Jennifer. 
“You’re always aware of those guidelines so whenever you get into a scene or sequence that could be tricky, you try and stay vigilant, you try and shoot some options, have an idea ahead of time so you don’t get stuck.” 
He assumed that Gary Ross, director of the first film The Hunger Games, may have had a harder challenge. 
“It must have been a different ball game because kids killing kids is always really tough no matter how much you show. 
“Fortunately, I didn’t have to deal with that because this time in there’s far less human-on-human violence, the arena is more of a threat and the tributes [fighters] are now adults – the youngest that are in there are Katniss and Peeta. That alone makes it a completely different ball game.”
