The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (PG-13): After winning the 74th Hunger Games competition, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) go on a victory tour that inadvertently sparks a rebellion. Director Francis Lawrence ( I Am Legend, Constantine) takes over from Gary Ross, who managed the seemingly impossible by turning the first novel into a crushingly dull film.
Delivery Man (PG-13): Writer-director Ken Scott remakes his own French-Canadian 2011 comedy, Starbuck. Vince Vaughn plays the underachiever who discovers that his donations at sperm banks over a 20-year period made him the father of 533 children, many of who suddenly want to meet him.
The Armstrong Lie (R): Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney ( Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Taxi to the Dark Side) was hired in 2009 to make a film about Lance Armstrong’s triumphant return to cycling after defeating cancer. But the intensifying rumors accusing Armstrong of using illegal performance-enhancing drugs changed the focus of the documentary.
The Book Thief (PG-13): In World War II Germany, a little girl (Sophie Nélisse) escapes the horrors of the real world by stealing books and sharing them. Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson play her adoptive parents in this adaptation of Markus Zusak’s novel.
JFK Assassination: The Definitive Guide (8 p.m. Friday, History Channel): From the Mafia to Fidel Castro to the Secret Service to even (gasp!) Lee Harvey Oswald, this documentary counts down the greatest hits of Kennedy assassination conspiracy theory.
Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles. (10 p.m. Saturday, HBO): The most politically incorrect comedienne alive brings her standup act to HBO. The reference to “miracles” in the title is probably a suggestion of what it would take for this show not to include something that offends you. Taped in Los Angeles in front of an audience of just 39 people, the fewer to storm out of the theater in outrage.
