Panem Map Reveal By Funtactix And Lionsgate In The Hunger Games Adventures

One of the most asked questions in The Hunger Games fandom got to be what does the Panem map looks like? While we do know Panem is located in the ruins of North American, specific locations of the Districts and Capitol were not given in the books which left fans making up their own Panem maps.

Now for the first time, fans will get to see the official Panem map which is revealed by Funtactix and Lionsgate in the official Facebook social game, The Hunger Games Adventures.

Check out the promotional screenshot below where you can see the locations of District 12 and the Capitol. Meanwhile in The Hunger Games Adventures, locations for District 2 and 11 are also waiting to be unlocked.

Actual populated District locations are labelled with a star as seen in the promotional shot below.

Donald Sutherland Merely Discussed Role The Of President Snow With Gary Ross

While we had reported Donald Sutherland had persuaded Gary Ross to let him play President Snow in an Entertainment Weekly article, Clevver TV caught up with Donald Sutherland ‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’ premiere in Los Angeles to chat about his upcoming role as President Snow in ‘The Hunger Games’.

In the interview, Donald Sutherland denied that he had persuaded Gary Ross to let him take up the role of President Snow via an email. It seemed like he had merely discussed in detail about what he thinks of President Snow and in which, inspired Gary Ross to write 2 additional scenes for ‘The Hunger Games’ movie with President Snow in it.

‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.

Donald Sutherland Persuaded Gary Ross To Let Him Play President Snow

We love how ‘The Hunger Games’ cast is made up of people who are truly interested in the roles. Entertainment Weekly revealed well respected and award winning actor, Donald Sutherland, actually sent an email to ‘The Hunger Games’ director Gary Ross with “a long thoughtful analysis of the way power is wielded and why, how it controls people and what the use of the Games were and how pernicious they were and the way that they were used as an instrument of political control.”

Donald Sutherland as President Coriolanus Snow

Gary Ross went on to explain what he thought of the email as well as how Donald Sutherland has inspired him to write two additional scenes into ‘The Hunger Games’ movie.

“It was so eloquent and brilliant,” continues Ross, “that it actually inspired me to write two extra scenes for him that I think are pivotal in the movie and that Suzanne really loves.” Ross was already shooting in Asheville, NC when he received the actor’s missive.  While on break he remembers wandering down to a clearing by the edge of a lake to ruminate over Sutherland’s ideas. “So I sat down in this chair and stared at the lake and came up with these two scenes,” he says. “And I realized that not only were the scenes vital but they actually fit a piece that was missing. That was a gift I got from the actor.”

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! In this first installment of the film trilogy, Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen and Sutherland’s Snow really only have one scene together. But Ross says to prepare for a doozy. “It’s only when she’s crowned that they confront one another and it’s very electric.”

We are certainly excited to see the additional scenes on the big screen!

‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.
