Happy Hunger Games! Vol. 2, Issue 13

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is #1 at the box office for three weeks in a row! Most predictors didn't see this happening. Fire is catching and it's been a slow burn for MJP1 with a total earnings of $258,153, 593!

 

JLaw has been nominated for Best Actress in an Action Movie for her role in MJP1 and Lorde's Yellow Flicker Beat has been nom'd for Best Song by the Critics' Choice Movie Awards! (X)

 

Katniss has also been chosen by Time as one of the Most Influential Fictional Characters of 2014:

The Hunger Games heroine (played by Jennifer Lawrence) has already secured her status as a feminist role model and a box-office powerhouse. But Katniss is more than a movie icon now: Her three-fingered salute, used in Mockingjay as a signal of rebellion against the Capitol, has become a rallying symbol among pro-democracy protesters in Thailand and Hong Kong(X)

 

Madame Tussauds of London has revealed that the museum will make the addition of a waxy Katniss:

The figure here in London will be portrayed in Katniss’ hunting outfit, which she wears in the second installment of the franchise, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Teamed with her iconic brown leather hunting jacket, are dark charcoal trousers, knee-length tie-up leather brown boots, plus brown leather quiver (arrow bag) and trademark bow. Her hair will by styled in her iconic braid.



New York and Hollywood will also host their own waxy Mockingjay figures. Each figure took four months to create at a cost of £150,000 GBP/$233,617.50 USD each! (X)

 

See you next time, Tributes! And may this season be ever in your favor!
