Well this was a nice surprise today! The Hunger Games Explorer site has 20 stills of characters from Catching Fire along with bios of the actors who portray them! Not only to we get some great shots of Katniss and Peeta, but of many of the other Victors (like a smiling Mags), Caesar, President Snow, and more!
Now that you’ve seen them all, which one(s) do you like best?! It’s hard to choose, isn’t it?
President Snow would never talk about how much he loves Katniss Everdeen, but Donald Sutherland has no problem voicing his admiration of Jennifer Lawrence. In a recent interview, Sutherland had nothing but wonderful things to say about her–and it’s really, really sweet!
“‘Hunger Games,’ it’s about the oligarchy of privilege. And to be able to participate in the struggle against that is everything that my heart would desire. And then, above and beyond that, to have the honor and delight of working with Jennifer, she’s a dream to work with. She’s a dream. She’s a dream. I love that child.”
This quote makes me want to work with both of them!
Our final Capitol Portrait has arrived! Yahoo! Movies revealed the eleventh and last Capitol Portrait today and as many of us guessed, it’s President Snow. Let us know what think about His Eminence’s portrait, we’d love to hear your thoughts! Actually, share your thoughts on all of them!
It’s been quite a week with all these portrait reveals, hasn’t it?! We can’t wait to see what else is in store for us between now and November!
Is anyone else a little unnerved about an airline who uses President Snow as its voice? Listen here!
Okay, okay…it’s just Donald Sutherland, and he’s a spectacular narrator. Besides, even if it was President Snow talking, he may be a soulless tyrant, but he does know luxury. He’d probably fly the finest airline in the sky!
Extra note: We at hungergamesfandom.net have no grievances with Delta, but we do find this joke acronym pretty amusing: DELTA: Don’t Ever Leave The Airport.
Extra note: That music in the background is from Finding Neverland. Isn’t it beautiful?
What scenes are you most looking forward to in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire? In this article MTV tells us what ones they are most anticipating, but before you start reading please be aware there are spoilers!
President Snow Knows About the Kiss
The scene I can’t wait to see: the one from early in the book in which Katniss finds herself face-to-face with the evil President Snow. He alerts her to the fact that her Hunger Games performance has sparked rebellion in the Districts … and then also lets fly with the news that he’s been spying on her and Gale during their sexual tension-filled reunion back in District 12. Not because it’s a particularly important moment — the revelation that the Prez is a creepy peeping Tom is more unintentionally hilarious than anything else — but I can’t be the only one dying to see if Donald Sutherland can deliver his line (“I know about the kiss!”) with a straight face. —Kat Rosenfield, writer
Victory Tour Stop in District 11
There are so many awesome scenes in this book! I had a really tough time selecting just one to write about. However, I settled on the scene that still makes eyes well up to this day: Katniss and Peeta’s Victory Tour stop in District 11. Try to tell me you weren’t moved to tears when the entire district saluted Katniss with the District 12 gesture, and I will not believe you. I still get teary-eyed just thinking about it. And yes, there was a hint to the scene in “The Hunger Games,” but I’m hoping that Francis Lawrence includes the full-scale version in “Catching Fire.” After all, it does start to set the tone for rumblings of rebellion… —Kara Warner, senior writer
Haymitch’s Hunger Games
Haymitch Abernathy is a mean, take-no-guff-from-you-young-whippersnappers-even-if-you’re-about-to-die drunk. He’s also, under Woody Harrelson’s scene-stealing control, totally loveable and the best part of “The Hunger Games.” In that film, we hear all about Haymitch’s former exploits as a 16-year-old champ of the kill-or-be-killed tourney. But it’s hard to square that badass warrior with the blotto bozo attempting to mentor his District 12 charges. “Catching Fire” fills in the blanks, and I can’t wait. As Katniss and Peeta train for the 75th Games, they watch footage of Haymitch’s tactical wizardry on his way to victory. It’s a short scene, yet one on which the man’s entire character arc depends. Plus I wonder who will play young Haymitch. Is Aaron Paul too old? Probably. What about Jamie Campbell Bower? Or — oh, please — Woody going in for a “Benjamin Button”-style makeover. —Eric Ditzian, Movies managing editor
