Jennifer Lawrence is expected to walk the red carpet when the Hunger Games sequel screens at the Rome Film Festival.

Catching Fire, the eagerly awaited second instalment in the series, will be screened out of competition at the festival on November 14, three days after its world premiere in London.

The movie won't make its debut in the US until later in November, reported The Wrap.

Jennifer shares the screen with Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in the films, which are based on Suzanne Collins' books and are set in a world where randomly chosen teens are forced to compete in a televised fight to the death.

Newcomers to the second film include Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright and Jena Malone.

The Rome Film Festival will run from November 8 to 17.
