Patti Smith Is A Huge “Hunger Games” Fan, Wrote A Song For The “Catching Fire” Soundtrack & Rocks A Mockingjay Pin
The Hunger Games book series and movies are hugely popular with a wide audience, but I was still surprised (and delighted!) to learn the legendary rock star and poet Patti Smith counts herself amongst its fans. In fact, Smith enjoys the series so much, she:
- Wears a mockingjay pin on her lapel and carries a mockingjay iPhone case.
- Has been known to hold her fingers up in the District 12 salute, which she says is “beautiful” and “brings tears” to her eyes, at concerts.
- She wrote a song for the “Catching Fire” soundtrack called “Capital Letter,” which, she explains, “[Is] like a letter to the Capitol, warning them about Katniss, but warning them in a proud way.” It includes the lyrics, “Rebellion has a heart / Breaking like the dawn / Bursting into song” and “She’s the silent one / In her silent boots / Racing through the flames.”
One question remains: Team Peeta or Team Gale? [Vanity Fair]
Despite successfully killing all their fellow tributes in “The Hunger Games,” Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark are not done kicking ass and taking names. In “Catching Fire,” Katniss and Peeta are back in the arena for the Quarter Quell, when past winners of the Hunger Games compete against each other. In this final trailer for the film, which opens November 22, we finally get a glimpse at the arena, some of the amazing costumes, and those freaky Jabberjays. But why, why, why is there no Finnick?!
Those of us who’ve read Suzanne Collins’ book series know the characters we met at the beginning of The Hunger Games certainly aren’t the characters we get when we start Catching Fire. But how will they change in Francis Lawrence’s film adaptation? A recent magazine feature gives a few insights.
Sci Fi Now Magazine did a big feature on “Catching Fire,” which Tumblr user thepeacekeeper posted images from. We learn a bit about what to expect from Katniss, Peeta, and more in the upcoming film from their interviews. Read more on The Mary Sue…
The official trailer for “Catching Fire,” the sequel to “The Hunger Games” (based on the book trilogy), debuted at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend and it is WOW. Keep your eyes peeled for a first look at the Arena, some awesome Capital fashions and lots and lots and lots of action. Will it be better than the first movie? Signs point to yes…
Since our first official look at “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” came out this week we’ve had several tidbits about the film cross our path, among them a pair of new pictures and confirmation from director Francis Lawrence of three characters who didn’t make the jump from page to screen.
So who got the axe? (Or spear, à la Rue… oh, sorry, too soon?) And what was that about new pictures? Read more…
“Hunger Games” fans, we have our Finnick Odair! After names like Taylor Kitsch, Chris Hemsworth, and Jesse Williams were tossed around, the producers eventually decided the token dreamboat of “Catching Fire” will be played by relative unknown Sam Claflin, So let’s find out a little more about the guy … and ogle his dreamboat status, of course…
10 Photos That Illustrate Why Jesse Williams Should Play Finnick Odair In “The Hunger Games” Sequels
Did you hear that? That noise? That’s the sound of racist Hunger Games fans losing their racist minds over the rumor that actor Jesse Williams (“Grey’s Anatomy”) is being considered for the role of Finnick Odair, one of the most popular characters in the second and third books in the Suzanne Collins’ trilogy. (And I was just getting used to the quiet following the Rue and Thresh ridiculous racist hullabaloo…) Williams, you see, is half-black. “Um, Finnick is supposed to be Caucasian,” wrote more than a few disgruntled fans of the series on various message boards online. A man of color can’t possibly play the dashing Finnick!
Hell. Yes. He. Can. Keep reading »
