The Hunger Games Explorer site revealed the first in a 12-part #ticktock countdown today with the announcement that tickets for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will go on sale October 1st! This is quite a bit earlier than advance tickets were available for The Hunger Games, which will be nice because once you have purchased your ticket the fact that you’re about to see the movie becomes so much more real, right?
In addition to this there’s also a contest going on over at Hunger Games Explorer where you can win a copy of Chris Martin’s handwritten lyrics sheet for Atlas.
Listen to this beautiful piece of audio art by the band Coldplay, titled Atlas. This is one of the songs to be released in the Catching Fire companion soundtrack.
