The Hunger Games is now on instagram, and to celebrate (or perhaps just to inflict some Capitol-style torture), Lionsgate has posted the above image with the cryptic caption:
Within these pages… #TheSpark. May 14th.
CinemaCon was last month from April 15-18 in Las Vegas, NV, and there was lots of Hunger Games buzz going around, especially about Catching Fire. At the time, fans had just seen the teaser trailer on MTV, so many wondered if we would get even more footage. While we did not get additional trailer scenes, we did get to hear from cast members, such as Elizabeth Banks. Watch her interview below with Extra TV and see what she had to say about Catching Fire.
Elizabeth’s interview starts at 2:06.

Our favorite Capitol news source is back, this time with a special edition of the Capitol Portraits! We’ve been given a closer look at each of the Catching Fire character portraits, this time gaining a bit of insight into the more fashionable side. It is, after all, Capitol Couture! Some snippets of the descriptions are included below.
Effie Trinket: Head to heel in couture, Effie enchants in an exploding silhouette of chiffon and organza blooms. Never one to waver in her fashionable footwear, her heel-less boots are shod with a golden horse-shoe platform.
Finnick Odair: A thin-woven tunic and a sea green, fish skin, skirt drape effortlessly around Finnick Odair. Purposely contrasted with polished leather and weighty footwear complete this brilliant look.
Katniss Everdeen: The Girl on Fire melts our hearts in this haute couture masterpiece. Tiers of ruffled organza spill out beneath a chiseled bodice, while a commanding sculpture, adorned with crystals delicately frame your Victor, Katniss Everdeen.
Check out the rest of them here! Scroll through the circles using the arrows on either side. What do you think of the descriptions? Any cosplayers out there inspired to take a stab at these looks? Let us know!
The 4th still from Catching Fire has been revealed on The Hunger Games Explorer and it features none other than President Snow and our first look at Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee.
Update: What may be most shocking about this photo, and thanks to Jose T for pointing it out to us in the comments, Is that Snow is sitting in the chair from Cinna’s Capitol Portrait! *shudder*.
One more still to be revealed! What do you hope it shows? Let us know in the comments.

Check it out below!
Only a few more days til we get the real deal! Can’t wait for Sunday!

Even though filming for Catching Fire has shifted to Georgia and Hawaii, North Carolina reported, Russ Bowen, continues to be one of the best sources for new rumors concerning the future of the series. In two tweets posted to his twitter account yesterday, Russ reported that Lionsgate isn’t quite done with the sequel, but that that hasn’t slowed down plans to begin production on the third film in the franchise later this year:
While we do know that Katniss and crew are heading back to Hawaii to finish up some of the arena work for Catching Fire, no news of filming in LA or of the film’s budget have come to light as of yet. We’ve heard nothing aboutMockingjay: Part 1, with the exception that the script has been completed. So please take both tweets with a HUGE grain of salt!read more
