Happy Hunger Games! Vol. 1, Issue 52

Sorry for the lag time between posts, but with seven months to go before Mockingjay Part 1, we’re in the off season for Hunger Games news. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been able to gleen some news and on set/behind the sences pictures from around the web! Just think of this as a slow burn to the explosion of fandom that will accompany the release of HG:MJ1.

 

 

 

 

 

Filming in Atlanta is on the verge of wrapping up, after some final scenes in the Swan House the production will move to Europe later this month. I wonder what they’ll be filming there? District 13? Some battle scenes? I can’t wait to find out! (X)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lily Rabe of American Horror Story fame was due to play Commander Lyme, (Lyme is one of the several Commanders in District 13. She comes from District 2 and is a past victor of an unknown Hunger Games) but has dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. Gwendoline Christie, who plays the awesome, amazing, incredible Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones will replace Rabe in the role.

 

 

I like Rabe, but I cannot pretend I’m thrilled by this new casting. Christie has been amazing on GoT. (X)

What’re your thoughts on the new casting? This is the second actor from GoT who will star in MJ!

 

 

The MTV Movie Awards took place last weekend and Catching Fire scored three of the big ones!

  • Movie of the Year

  • Josh Hutcherson for Best Male Performance

  • Jennifer Lawrence for Best Female Performance

 

I hope to see you soon, Tributes! What're you doing in the downtime?
