Check out the full press release below for more details.

SUBWAY® RESTAURANTS AND LIONSGATE TEAM UP FOR THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE

Companies Will Support Feeding America as Part of Collaboration
Milford, CT and Santa Monica, CA (July 8, 2013) – SUBWAY® restaurants, the world’s largest restaurant chain, and Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), a leading global entertainment company, today announced that SUBWAY® will be the exclusive restaurant promotional destination for the film “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” the highly anticipated second installment of the global blockbuster “The Hunger Games” film franchise. “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” will open in theaters worldwide on November 22. SUBWAY® and Lionsgate will utilize their promotion to support Feeding America, a non-profit organization consisting of more than 200 food banks nationwide.
SUBWAY® restaurants in the U.S. and Canada will be fired up in anticipation of the film’s release, with a number of promotional assets planned for in-store, social, online, and broadcast. A special product line will be featured with thematic ties to the film, along with specially marked packaging with codes encouraging customers to engage online for their chance to win prizes. SUBWAY® customers can also pose with their favorite character’s standees in the restaurants and are invited to share photos on social media for additional chances to win.

“There’s nothing hotter than ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise,” said Michelle Cordial, Director of
Marketing Development for SUBWAY® restaurants. “Being able to deliver exclusive ‘Catching Fire’ experiences to our Subway fans is something that Hunger Games enthusiasts can’t find anywhere else.”

“With SUBWAY joining as a promotional partner for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,’ Lionsgate has found new ways to reach a larger audience of fans of the film franchise,” said Paula Kupfer, Vice President of Promotions and Consumer Products for Lionsgate. “Beyond providing fans with unique film experiences, what makes this promotion truly special to the studio is our ability to work with SUBWAY to support Feeding America and help provide to those in need.”

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is directed by Francis Lawrence, from a screenplay by Simon Beaufoy and Michael DeBruyn, based upon the novel “Catching Fire” by Suzanne Collins and produced by Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik.

Catching Fire party at Cannes!

'The Hunger Games:Catching Fire' Photocall - The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Francis Lawrence, Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Sam Claflin showed up at Cannes for the promotion of Catching Fire by attending the party joining held by Lionsgate and CoverGirl.

Not the entire movie will be shown at Cannes; only certain scenes will be shown.

Details of the Catching Fire Party can be seen at Vulture.

The rain has been a literal dampener of Cannes’s usually delightful excess this entire week. […] Similarly, the Catching Fire party, whose cost in the hundreds of thousands of dollars was mostly shouldered by sponsor CoverGirl and foreign film distributors, was meant to have a super secret special effect happening oceanside, one that required special effects crews to be flown in from the States — rumors were a barge with fireworks and a wall of water onto which images would be projected (really it was going to be a projection of water onto a screen) — that simply had to be scrapped. The Capitol seal was still raised high at the end of a pier that was supposed to have been filled with champagne-swilling revelers, but like Gatsby’s green light, it was barely visible through the deluge, and seemed so very far away.

Still, the spectacle that Lionsgate and event producer Danielle Pelland did manage to pull off was sufficient for a pretty great time. Hanging from the tent’s ceiling were crystal chandeliers along with giant dripping Baroque arrangements of white peonies topped with candles. More peonies topped large Roman columns, topped by more candles. The center of the room was dominated by an endless food table piled high with desserts (10,000 pieces of food for the event total) and book-ended by two three-tiered chocolate fondue fountains, one white and one dark. Behind the bars on either end of the vast tent were framed Baroque-style portraits of the Hunger Games characters in their Capitol finest. Male waiters and bartenders were marked with fake face tattoos resembling either tiger stripes or Mike Tyson’s. Mixed drinks that Les Misérables‘s Samantha Banks called “very fierce, very colorful, very extreme” were standard in flavor (gin fizz, tequila sunrise), but concocted in unnaturally bright greens and blues. “You mean that Gatorade-blue drink? It was terrible!” said Hemlock Grove‘s Bill Skarsgård. Was he a Hunger Games fan? “I actually tried out for what’s-his-name”— Gale, he said, laughing. “I didn’t get it.”

The best touch, though, were the lavishly costumed models, mostly from Cannes and Monaco, swanning amidst the likes of Les Moonves and Julie Chen, Ellen von Unwerth, Colin Egglesfield, and Rick Yune (The Fast and the Furious). They’d been outfitted in futuristic dresses with towering, often brightly colored fake hair and feathered hats so large one model with a smaller headpiece had to part the crowd so her friend could get through without poking someone’s eye out. The costumes had been conceived by Erin Hirsh, the costume designer for The Voice, who’d flown in from Los Angeles with seven giant duffel bags and a letter of intent from Lionsgate to avoid getting hassled by customs. One of Hirsh’s shoppers, Hachy Mendez, tells me that Lionsgate gave them a “very time-sensitive” link (it expired after an hour) to images all watermarked with Hirsh’s name that they could draw inspiration from but not copy exactly. “It was very Illuminati-exclusive.” The look they went for, says Mendez, was “church lady avant-garde,” while Vulture Kyle describes the two male models, dressed in caps and shrunken jackets with S&M face gear, as looking like “Adam Lambert in a steam punk conductor’s outfit.” (In an informal survey of the models, only a few had seen the movie and none had read the books, but they all like “the future.”)

A photo of the invitation is attached below which is taken from Sophie Sumner’s Instagram.

RUMOUR: Mockingjay Part 1 to start filming in September?

As we finally get a confirmation on when we will see the first trailer for Catching Fire, news seems to be rolling out recently.

wpid-Mockingjay_book__120710195623.jpg

A tweet states that Mockingjay Part 1 could be starting on production on September 16th in Atlanta and Boston. Mockingjay Part 1 is stated to be released on November 21st 2014, which means that there is about a year for them to film and prepare should they really start filming in September.

However, do note that there has been no confirmation from Lionsgate so far!

And ps: there is only 6 more days till the release of the teaser trailer of Catching Fire! 😀
