Peeta blazed the trail, and now it's catching fire.
Following in the footsteps of their Hunger Games costar Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks ditched the dystopian universe for some time with dolphins.
During three separate visits to Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium last month, the actors, in town filming Hunger Games: Catching Fire, were treated to exclusive meet-and-greets with marine mammals.
On Oct. 14, Lawrence donned a wetsuit to swim with whale sharks, manta rays and zebra sharks at the Journey with Gentle Giants exhibit. While she was instructed not to touch the creatures, she swam the perimeter and got up close and personal with several whale sharks.

Don't expect Jennifer Lawrence to succumb to the pressures of Hollywood anytime soon.
"I'm never going to starve myself for a part ... I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner.' That's something I was really conscious of during training, when you're trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong – not thin and underfed," the actress, 22, tells December's Elle.
Despite being a relatively new face on the silver screen, the star of Silver Linings Playbook – which also stars Bradley Cooper and opens Nov. 21 – says her career brings her confidence.

May the menu be ever in your favor!
Seeking some Southern comfort food, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence stepped out at Watershed in Atlanta on Thursday.
The actress, who is in town filming Catching Fire, the next installment of the Hunger Games saga, joined the film's director Francis Lawrence and a few friends for a meal.
"Jennifer was super engaging, she spoke with other diners and even posed for a few pictures," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She seemed like she was having a blast."
Wearing an emerald green and black maxi dress, Lawrence shared appetizers with friends and ordered the restaurant's signature jambalaya for her main course.

"Just had surgery to fix my broken nose," the actor Tweeted on May 9. But luckily he found some entertainment as he convalesced – Tweeting at Jennifer Love Hewitt about enjoying her Lifetime television show.

In her role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence takes on blood-thirsty mutts and killer bees (not to mention the expert Careers with killer instincts and good looks).
But can she take on the funny ladies of Bridesmaids?
Her bow and arrow won't help her much when her film goes head-to-head with the ensemble comedy at this year's MTV Movie Awards, where both The Hunger Games and Bridesmaids are nominated eight times (for movie of the year, best cast and breakthrough performance, among other categories).

There are big changes coming to Panem – and no, we're not just talking about the brewing uprising led by a certain Girl on Fire.
On Monday, director Gary Ross shocked insiders and fans alike when he announced that he would be stepping down for the second Hunger Games film, Catching Fire.
Calling the blockbuster first film – which has broken box-office records with a domestic take of $302 million and counting – "the happiest experience of my professional life," Ross stated that "as a writer and a director, I simply don't have the time I need to write and prep the movie I would have wanted to make because of the fixed and tight production schedule."
