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.

The clues only started adding up when the highlighted line of the quote “The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand.” was posted before 14th May (US time), the day which Lionsgate promised something big will happen on The Hunger Games Instagram.

On the midnight of 15th May 2013 (Singapore time), Lionsgate revealed a new ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ featuring Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) with the tagline “The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand.”

CATCHING FIRE KATNISS CLIFF POSTER

This new ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ poster follows the same oil painting concept of Capitol Portraits. With Katniss Everdeen standing near the cliff and sun rising, it’s clear Katniss Everdeen be an important figure to Panem citizens in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’.

Fans will no doubt be pleased that an actual line from the Catching Fire novel made it onto the poster, further proving that Lionsgate is planning to stay true to the Catching Fire novel as much as possible.

NEW PHOTO: Director Francis Lawrence On Catching Fire Set With Jennifer Lawrence And Liam Hemsworth

After several months of drought, we are finally seeing lots of new “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” photos today.

The latest photo to surface is a behind the scene photo where “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” director Francis Lawrence is seen mingling with Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne) and Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen).

EW Reveals Five New Stills: Mrs Everdeen and Prim, Plutarch and Haymitch, President Snow, Katniss and Peeta, Gale

It has been a busy day for The Hunger Games fans and media alike. Following the reveal of the latest Entertainment Weekly issue with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) on the cover and a “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” movie still where Finnick gets uncomfortably close to Katniss, we have not one, not two, but FIVE new stills for you to stare look at.

”These are kids growing up in war who physically, emotionally can’t love somebody,” says Jennifer Lawrence about the uncomfortable triangle between District 12’s battle-weary Katniss, Peeta, and her childhood friend Gale that began in The Hunger Games. ”Katniss thinks she can’t have a crush on a boy because she’s worried about survival every single day. And she can’t be a normal 16-year-old meeting her friend out in the woods and practicing kissing because that’s not the world that they live in.”

”Jen and Liam have amazing chemistry,” says director Francis Lawrence of his young stars. ”They have a nice moment right before Katniss is reaped that is the very first thing we shot. And then when Gale has been brought in from the whipping, that’s another really nice moment they have alone.” ”This is the book where you have to understand the pull Katniss feels to both Peeta and Gale,” say producer Nina Jacobson.

What do you think of the five new stills?
