Germany’s High5 Interviews Catching Fire Stars at Comic-Con

A few more interviews from Comic-Con have surfaced, these ones conducted by Germany’s High5.  Watch as Josh Hutcherson shares what his advice to Peeta would be concerning Katniss, Jeffrey Wright reveals he has become ‘cool’ in the eyes of his children, and Francis Lawrence admits that shaky-cam just isn’t his style AND that the scenes in the arena are approximately an hour long!


THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE Panel Photos From San Diego Comic-Con 2013

Despite the fact that Yahoo! had apparently jumped the gun and shown the new The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer online before those in Hall H got to even see it, it didn’t downplay the fact that we got to see the cast (and some even got to meet most of them and get their autographs).  Frankly, even if they didn’t show up for a panel, there’s no doubt that people would’ve gone to see the film.

Thus, we’re happy that Lionsgate was gracious enough to allow not only for signings from the supporting actors, but for the panel itself (which was not present at last year’s Comic-Con).  Check out the photos after the jump to see the cast: Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne), Willow Shields (Primrose Everdeen), Lenny Kravitz (Cinna), Jeffrey Wright (Beetee), Jena Malone (Johanna Mason), and director Francis Lawrence.

A ‘Hunger Games’ fan’s guide to SDCC

For all of you Hunger Games fans attending next week’s SDCC, Amy Wilkinson at MTV has compiled an informative guide of when and where all of the Hunger Games related action is going to be!  This includes various panels and  a cast signing on Saturday, July 14th that you probably won’t want to miss!

We don’t need a panel to tell us dystopia is hot, hot, hot right now, but you better believe we’re hungry to attend one anyway. On Thursday, July 12, at 3 p.m. in Room 25ABC, authors Anna North (“America Pacifica”), Neal Shusterman (“Unwind” trilogy), Lissa Price (“Starters”), Paolo Bacigalupi (“The Drowned Cities”), Michael Grant (“BZRK”), Daniel H. Wilson (“Amped”), Gennifer Albin (“Crewel”) and Marie Lu (“Legend”) will sit down to chat about the burgeoning genre.

A few hours later, head to the Blu-ray Producers 2012 panel in Room 5AB, where Cliff Stephenson (the man behind “The Hunger Games” discs) will talk shop alongside producers from many a high-profile project, including “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation-Seasons One and Two.”

There’s no denying the fanciful wardrobe of the Capitol’s citizenry was a visual high point in the series’ first installment. Fashion fiends and neophytes alike will want to flock to the Costume Designers and Illustrators: From Concept to Reality panel on Saturday, July 14, at 5 p.m. in Room 24ABC, where “Hunger Games” costume illustrator Christian Cordella will be one of many talents on hand talking about taking an imaginative vision and bringing it to stunning life onscreen.

And here it is, the pièce de résistance. To celebrate the August 18 DVD/Blu-ray release of “The Hunger Games,” Lionsgate will be hosting a star signing at its booth (#4035) on Saturday, July 14, at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. The lineup includes Alexander Ludwig (Cato), Amandla Stenberg (Rue), Dayo Okeniyi (Thresh), Isabelle Fuhrman (Clove), Jack Quaid (Marvel) and Willow Shields (Primrose Everdeen).
