This new The Hunger Games: Catching Fire clip shows the two victors, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), as they approach the Presidential Palace. Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), as their escort, gives them a few pointers through her excitement, and you can’t help but chuckle a little bit.
Thanks to the incredible people at Ranker.com, we have access to a very cool Hunger Games list! As you can see below, Katniss leads the pack (no surprise), but Haymitch is in second?? We thought for sure that would be Peeta.

For those who really like Gale — and really, anyone with a heart — doesn’t it seem like Gale really gets the shaft? Well, as rinpandaz.tumblr.com passed on from weheartit.tumblr.com, that extends to nicknames as well. Have a look:
Can’t someone get the poor guy a nickname? He’s lost out bad enough, really.
Us Weekly’s Catching Fire Collector’s Edition will hit shelves on November 1st and we now know what the cover looks like! This time we get Katniss flanked by Finnick and Peeta, once again in their arena gear. It looks like this issue is packed full of some great stuff, including FIVE posters! You can pre-order a copy Barnes and Noble.
Catching Fire is — well — catching fire all over the world right now, with legions of posters springing up on top of cabs, in subways, in cinemas, and so many other places. The most impressive display of all, however, just might be in Times Square:
Really, Lionsgate is pulling out all the stops! As soon as I saw this on the street, I knew I just HAD to take that picture and share it on our site. For frame of reference, zoom in on the photo and compare the billboard size to the buildings behind. Katniss and Peeta are absolutely MASSIVE.
Josh Hutcherson gave a candid interview with Out Magazine where here talked about his role in the Hunger Games franchise, his sexuality, and a threesome involving Peeta, among other things. He also took part in a photoshoot which yielded some pretty great photos! See below for images and excerpt of from interview!
In The Hunger Games, there’s no question that he’s the leader of Team Nice Guy, a.k.a. Peeta Mellark. When he’s chosen at random to fight to the death against two dozen other teenagers, even Peeta’s mom bets on heroine Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) to ultimately survive the kill-or-be-killed tournament.
Over the four-film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’s best-selling books—the first movie made almost $700 million at the box office worldwide; its sequel, Catching Fire, comes out this month—Katniss is torn between her feelings for Peeta, who helps save their lives more than once, and for her best guy friend, the tall, dark, and handsome Gale (Liam Hemsworth). All three sides of the love triangle get stuck in the midst of a massive civil war. “They’re having a tough time,” Hutcherson says.
Maybe because the films are so intense, and because he spends so much time answering the same banal questions at press junkets, Hutcherson seems to relish the opportunity to lighten the mood. When I suggest a threesome might be a more expedient solution to at least some of Peeta’s problems, he immediately agrees: “I know Peeta would be into it, for sure. He’s very sensitive, in touch with his emotions. I think it really might solve a lot of their problems. You know what? I’m going to pitch that idea. Let’s make it a—what’s it called when three people are in a relationship together? A triad?” He rolls his eyes at his own enthusiasm. “That’ll go over well with Middle America.”
