As Victory Tour 74 marches on and the Third Quarter Quell quickly approaches, Panem is abuzz with speculation about what surprises the Gamemakers have up their sleeves. We spoke recently with Head Gamemaker, Plutarch Heavensbee about the upcoming Games and what’s in store for this year’s tributes.
“President Snow and I are knee-deep in strategy sessions, ” Heavensbee told us. “The President and I have been in almost constant contact these last few weeks. We want to ensure we give Panem the Quarter Quell it so richly deserves. This Quell will be like nothing this country has EVER seen!”
When pressed for details, Heavensbee was characteristically tight-lipped, but offered, “Get ready for something truly electrifying!”
Lionsgate and Internet Explorer have launched a "groundbreaking digital home" for Hunger Games fans, The Hunger Games Explorer. This "definitive online destination" for fans is a go-to site for a rich, interactive experience that lets users explore the world of The Hunger Games.
The site will let you track every development in the franchise, including fan blogs, talent tweets, exclusive images and videos. The site will serve as a social aggregator, allowing both official and fan-generated content to be pulled from multiple social media platforms. Users will be able to search, filter and share content directly from the site. Another feature called “sparking” lets fans “like” objects while driving discussion around each bit of news or fan-created content.
“We have the best fans in the world, and starting tonight they have a home on the web where they can be a part of The Hunger Games experience and contribute to the excitement for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” said Danielle De Palma, senior vice president digital marketing, Lionsgate. “The Hunger Games Explorer is not only a place for fans to spark the conversation around The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but also a destination where we can continue to provide fans with new content, experiences and unprecedented behind-the-scenes access.”
”With The Hunger Games Explorer, we wanted to change the game for how a movie can be extended to the web, providing an intensely immersive experience for fans,” said Roger Capriotti, director, Internet Explorer marketing.
