Hunter Phillips, who was an extra on the first film (he stood two spots behind Peeta during the Reaping scene) has put together a phenomenal video from the special screening in Tennessee on behalf of the Hunger Games Fireside Chat Podcast.
Most notably, go about four minutes in and watch the wonderful interview with Francis Lawrence. What a NICE GUY!
In a recent interview with NME, Ohio-based band, The National, revealed they will be joining Coldplay on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!
Speaking to NME, the band’s frontman Matt Berninger said that the track was originally titled ‘Dying Is Easy’, but it was deemed “too dark” by the film’s makers so the band were forced to change it to ‘Lean’. “The song almost didn’t make it because it was too dark for The Hunger Games soundtrack, which I thought was sort of funny because It’s about killing kids, I don’t know how a song can be darker than that?” he says. “So we had to change the name of the song; I actually like the name ‘Lean’.”He added: “The song was originally called ‘Dying Is Easy’ and I think that they thought it was a little too dark. But, you know, I get it. It was a really fun project…It was a cool change from how we normally work on things – to write something for something else. It was kind of a pressure release thing and it was fun, we really enjoyed it.”
