This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Katniss learns how to make fire with a flint and steel. Other tributes take note and try to learn. She sees them trying to make fire with a bow drill. She offers them advice on how to make fire better.
   Katniss doesn't know what Peeta did for the Gamemasters when she goes in. The gamemasters seem dsiturbed, the room has been disinfected, and a mat is covering something on the floor. She learns later of the painting he made of Rue. She sees him walking out with the painting still on the ground for her to see.
   Johanna Mason calmly mentions her anger at the Gamemasters for the changes in the rules. She is very angry and uses the F word in her interview while yelling.
   Venia, Flavius, and Octavia all say goodbye to Katniss. They are not shown saying goodbye.
   Peeta can't swim and is unable to kill anyone during the opening of the arena. Peeta can swim and fights a trubute from District 5 and kills him in the water.
