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.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will be directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.

Lionsgate Reveals “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Cast App

Have you heard the news yet? We are around 499 days away from “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” release in USA and after lots of waiting, we have our first casting announcement with Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee! Lionsgate’s press release for Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee also includes “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” synopsis but that’s not all.

Following the announcement of Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, Lionsgate has also revealed “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” casting app which you can visit at www.CatchingFireCasting.com where you can see in a glance what roles are left to be filled for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.

As this app is managed by Lionsgate, regardless of whatever rumours you have heard along the way, if the actor/actress is not listed in www.CatchingFireCasting.com, chances are the rumour is nothing but a rumour and it’s not confirmed.

This isn’t the first time Lionsgate has done something like this. Last year, during the casting for “The Hunger Games” movie, Lionsgate launched the “Who Are The Tributes?” app and a set of Tributes was revealed each time after sometime.

It is expected it will be the same this time round, dragging out each announcement for casting. We have around 499 days to go after all.

A sharp-eyed reader, Jossan, noticed there are two unnamed roles to be filled in at www.CatchingFireCasting.com.

The first is an unnamed portrait of a male beside Lenny Kravitz as Cinna.

The second is an unnamed portrait of a female on the left of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark.

*MAJOR SPOILER FOR LAST BOOK OF “THE HUNGER GAMES” TRILOGY*

Some speculates the female character could be either victor of the 70th Hunger Games, Annie Cresta, or President of District 13, President Alma Coin, as “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” can allow us to have a glimpse at what is going on beyond Katniss’s perspective too.

Down With The Capitol guessed the unnamed male character could be “Plutarch’s spot once he leaves the top banner.”

What do you think?

‘The Hunger Games’, rated PG13, was released on 22 March 2012 and is now available in all cinemas islandwide. ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ is scheduled for release on 22 November 2013 in USA.
