First Look at Official Catching Fire Outdoor Art

Number 1 fan on Hunger Games Explorer, @ToriiJaade, revealed our first peek at Catching Fire outdoor art and I think it is amazing! This billboard features Katniss with her hair down, which we don’t see that often, and the Cinna quote “Remember girl on fire I’m still betting on you.” Combined they make a pretty stunning pierce of art, don’t you think?

And congrats to @ToriiJaade for earning the opportunity to share this with the world!

Lenny Kravitz on Cinna’s Catching Fire Fate

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lenny Kravitz talks briefly about Cinna’s fate in Catching Fire.  Spoilers ahead!

He continues to toggle between singing and acting as well. In Catching Fire, out Nov. 22, his fashion-designer character, Cinna, will meet a violent end. “After my death scene, everyone’s like, ‘Oh shit, you’re not coming back!’ But you move on,” he laughs. “It was fun while it lasted.”

While most of us know what Cinna’s fate is, I’m not sure it’s going to be easy to accept!

Capitol Couture’s Spotlight on Cinna

We waited all days guys, and he’s finally here! Cinna’s always worth the wait, right?  Check out Capitol Couture’s profile on him below!


For Cinna, fashion isn’t simply a career.  It’s a calling.  “I always channel my emotions into my work,” he says.

When it was announced that he would be styling the tributes of District 12 in the 74th Hunger Games, many Capitol observers were confused; just who was this mysterious stylist taking over District 12 duties?

Yet for Cinna it was a chance to prove himself, and this unique opportunity has paid off in spades.  After the unprecedented dual victory of Katniss and Peeta, he has become the Capitol’s most sought after designer, his iconic “girl on fire” dress quickly making him a household name.  In fact, many of the Capitol’s fashion elite wouldn’t be caught dead wearing anyone else these days.

And what surprising inspiration does Cinna credit for that fiery creation?  The coal mines of Katniss’s District 12: “What do we do with coal?” he asks.  “We burn it.”

As the entire Capitol, and the more fashionable District citizenry, awaits his next move with bated breath, the fashion phenom is playing things close to his fabulously dressed chest. When asked what’s in store for the newly-minted style guru, Cinna’s been known to simply shrug and smile coyly – silently reassuring us that whatever it is will leave us awestruck. Until then, keep twirling…

Lenny Kravitz Talks About ‘The Hunger Games’ and Cinna’s Fate in ‘Catching Fire’

In a recent interview with Vulture, Lenny Kravitz talks about The Hunger Games and reveals a little information on what we can expect  for Cinna in Catching Fire.

Meanwhile, how has being in The Hunger Games affected your fan base?
Um, well, I have eight-year-old kids coming up to me who know me as Cinna and have no idea that I make music.


The book mentions your character being tortured for supporting Katniss. Will we see that on screen?
Um, I can’t say too much about it. But you will see how he leaves the story.

Personally, what do you think is the worst way to be tortured?
Oh wow — there’s trivial torture, and there’s real torture. I guess on a trivial level, you know, not being able to hear or make music. That would drive me crazy, yeah.
