Up in the unforgiving North Atlantic, in a small sacred stretch of ocean, treasure lurks in the deep. In just 1,000 square nautical miles, a group of hearty fishermen battle it out for the biggest and most valuable fish in the sea--the monster Atlantic Bluefin Tuna. These massive fish make the tuna caught off the coast of Massachusetts look like bait. Catching Monsters will take viewers inside the intense world of fishing for one of the world's most prized ocean predators.
Every fall, a brave group of fishermen abandon their jobs as lobstermen for six weeks to pursue monsters of the deep that can bring in a fortune. In these die hard North Atlantic fishing communities, fishing is in their blood and passed down from generation to generation.
Runtime: 60 minutes

The plot of Catching Fire takes place a few months after the previous installment; Katniss Everdeen and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark have returned home safely after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games. Throughout the story, Katniss senses that a rebellion against the oppressive Capitol is simmering throughout the districts.

It ranks as the 14th-highest-grossing film at the domestic box office and the highest-grossing film at the domestic box office of 2013, becoming the first 2-D film since The Dark Knight (2008) to top the yearly box office, as well as having a lead female top the box office since The Exorcist (1973). The film has grossed over $865 million worldwide and is the fifth-highest-grossing film of 2013 and the highest-grossing entry in The Hunger Games series. The film was followed by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, a two-part sequel and finale of the franchise: Part 1 was released on November 21, 2014, in the United States, and Part 2 on November 20, 2015.

The song “Atlas” was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media and a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.
Catching Monsters - Major differences - Netflix
There are more minor differences between the book and the film, but these ones are major changes that created a difference in how the movie acts compared to the books. Along with the other two books, those movies also have many differences as well.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was a box office hit, but not all fans enjoyed it as much as they thought they would. Like all book to movie adaptations, some key events need to be taken out to have the story fit a movie screen better and fit also in the allotted time. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire did include many differences from Suzanne Collins' novel that sparked some controversy within the fanbase. Bonnie and Twill never make an appearance – If you have read the series, you know that Bonnie and Twill are a small portion of the book, but give us a very key detail that will be important later in the series. Bonnie and Twill are the two refugees from District 8 who find Katniss in the woods of District 12. They are trying to find District 13, which Katniss knows has been destroyed and is just rubble, but that plays an important part later in the series... Katniss comes to realize throughout the book of Catching Fire that District 13 may actually be up and running, and that the Capital is keeping that a secret from the Districts by showing them old footage on green screens. In the film, none of this happens, except for District 13 being mentioned by Gale that there are still people there. Darius the peacekeeper – Along with Bonnie and Twill, Darius the peacekeeper is a character cut for the film. When Gale is being whipped by violent peacekeepers, things run differently in the book. Instead of having Haymitch break up the fight in the movie, the book brings in a peacekeeper named Darius, who tries to help Gale during this beating. Darius is immediately attacked by the peacekeepers, and later in the book Katniss sees him as an Avox, a capital slave, as a punishment. Haymitch's Quarter Quell experience – In the film, it is only mentioned that Haymitch has been a previous winner before, yet in the book it goes much deeper than that. In the book, it is revealed to Katniss and Peeta that Haymitch has been the winner of a quarter quell (a special hunger games every 25 years). They are able to see footage of his win, and learn that he has won by using the forcefield of the arena to his advantage. This contributes to the story in that it gives Katniss and Peeta ideas about the forcefield and foreshadows that something will happen with the arena forcefield in the future. The games are much longer in the film rather than the book – Not so much a change in the story, but in the film, the actual hunger games take about half of the runtime, but in the book the games are only about one third of the content. This shows that the film left out many things that happened outside the arena, but included lots of book details from inside the arena. President Snow's granddaughter – A character that the film focused more on was President Snow's granddaughter. This character was mentioned in the book, but since the book is only told from Katniss's perspective, we don't get the conversations President Snow has with his granddaughter like we do in the movie. Plutarch Heavensbee Mockingjay Watch – This may seem as a minor difference between the book and the movie, but as a whole this small difference plays a big part. In the book, Plutarch Heavensbee and Katniss share a dance together at the Capital party during their victory tour. This happens in the movie, but in the book Plutarch also takes out a watch which has a mockingjay symbol. This is not only a symbol to the arena he is creating that resembles a watch, but a huge step of foreshadowing to Katniss to hint at her that he is on her side of the rebellion.
