PHOTOS: Donald Sutherland As President Snow On “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Set

Following previous set of paparazzi photos showing cast of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” on set, photos of Donald Sutherland as President Snow on set appeared online.

In the photos, Donald Sutherland was wearing a suit and a coat. In some photos, he was standing on a podium as well.

Many guessed *CATCHING FIRE MAJOR SPOILER ALERT* they might be filming the scene where President Snow announced Tributes for 75th Hunger Games, also known as Quarter Quell, will be reaped from Victors of previous Hunger Games.

Check out the photos below!

Updates on locations for Catching Fire

As Catching Fire takes place in more locations as compared to Hunger Games, this has caused more locations that are going to be used in the movie.

One example would be the filming to be held at ‘The Beach’ at Clayton’s International Park.

Parts of the second movie in “The Hunger Games” trilogy will be filmed over the next few months at Clayton’s International Park. The production brings with it demand for movie extras, moonlighting gigs for local police and work for local businesses.

“Catching Fire,” the second “Hunger Games” film, will shoot at a man-made water park known as “The Beach” because it was built as the beach volleyball venue for the 1996 Olympics. The park is being transformed into a post-apocalyptic setting for the movie, which is based on a book about children forced to fight to the death for food. Other parts of the movie will be shot in Atlanta and Hawaii.

Clayton County will be paid $80,000 in the deal it reached with Project GGX Productions Inc., according to documents obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Additionally, off-duty Clayton police officers will earn $45 an hour for security, and a Clayton County Water Authority worker will be paid $75 an hour to drain and refill the park’s lake.

That beach certainly looks pretty! I wonder why they would need to drain and refill the park’s lake… If they wouldn’t be closing the whole park, perhaps we will get more insight and sightings of the cast and possible spoilers! 🙂

 

Just like in Hunger Games, the Justice Building also has a significant part in Catching Fire.

Unlike the Justice Building that was shown in Hunger Games, this has trees in close proximity of the building. Could this be from another district or has Lionsgate decide to give a different feel to the building? However, it is still building, so the answer could probably be only known at a later stage.

 

The place for the Capitol party scene has been said to be held at the Swan House.

It has been said that the filming will take place during 26th, 27th and 28th September. The website has also said that they will be closed from 17th to 28th September.

The construction taking place at the area seems to be making it even more grand! (The two staircases at the bottom is constructed.)

The Hunger Games, rated PG13, was released on 22 March 2012 and DVD and Blu-Ray are now available. “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is scheduled for release on 22 November 2013 in USA.

Suzanne Collins: One of the Most Powerful Moms of 2012

Suzanne Collins

To celebrate Mother’s Day, Working Mother compiled a list of women who have made (and are still making) a major impact on various fields such as social networking, technology, showbiz, etc. Our beloved Suzanne Collins has made the list as the Most Powerful Mom: Children’s Literature Star!

Suzanne Collins

Most Powerful Mom: Children’s Literature Star

Author

Children: Son, 17, Daughter, 12

Suzanne Collins seems ubiquitous these days, with the kid-lit mantle proverbially passed to her by J.K. Rowling. Her bestselling book series, The Hunger Games trilogy, is still breaking records; and now there’s a blockbuster movie inspired by the first book—with more to come. Collins began her career working for children’s television, ultimately  becoming the head writer for the PBS show Clifford’s Puppy Days. She also wrote children’s books including The Underland Chronicles and When Charlie McButton Lost Power.

Congratulations to Suzanne for making the list!

The entire Hunger Games Singapore staff would also like to wish all mothers a very happy and joyous Mother’s Day!

Josh Hutcherson In January 2012 British Edition Of Glamour Magazine

Our friends over at Hunger Games Indonesia stumbled on a short mention of Josh Hutcherson, who will play Peeta Mellark in ‘The Hunger Games’, where he was ranked 3rd as MONITOR “The Stars to watch in 2012” in British edition of January 2012 issue of Glamour magazine.

In case you find the picture too blurry, here’s what Glamour magazine has to say about Josh Hutcherson:

The Hunger Games is the first chapter of a Trilogy that’s set to be huge, but it’s Josh who’ll grab your attention as Peeta in Part 1. While Twilight had Team Edward and Team Jacob, THG will introduce a new divide: Team Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and Team Peeta (Josh). Both are vying for the heart of Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss in this sci-fi extravaganza, out in March, Josh also joins Chris Hemsworth and Isabel Lucas in the remake of Red Dawn.

Many thanks to Hunger Games Indonesia for the tip and picture!
