Filming for Catching Fire will get underway soon. While we don’t have an exact date, it’s due to go into production in September with at least two of the major stars spotted in Atlanta. As fans, there’s not much we can do but wait, and hope that we can catch any news that gives us some kind of clue to what’s going on.
Well Next Movie decided to think ahead and work out which five scenes we might have half a chance of scoping out. But as they point out..there are spoilers ahead:
Beachside Arena Sequences
Many of the arena sequences in the Third Quarter Quell’s Games take place within the cover of the jungle, but there are also a few key moments in or near water. The beginning of the Games, for instance, are totally water-based. Some ocean scenes can be done in-studio, of course, but it’s not nearly as easy to conceal from the public eye a beach-side set (see the boat-line security Summit had to put together for the “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” set in Brazil, e.g.). So, there’s a chance we might get to see moments like when Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) are all recovering from the poisonous gas section of the clock-style arena. Or when Johanna (Jena Malone) evacuates Wiress (Amanda Plummer) and Beetee from the blood rain segment. Hawaiians, get your cameras readied just in case you stumble across some action.
Tribute Parade Party
The “Hunger Games” tribute parade was shot in-studio, so the actual scene itself might be kept well under wraps, but that doesn’t mean we won’t catch a castmate or two meandering around the Atlanta area in costume, especially if the various parties and events of the book get any play in the movie. Goodness help us if we just so happen to catch an early glimpse of Finnick in his, well, revealing get-up during that scene! Go ahead and just start staking out thatGeorgia Dome for us, would ya?
Train Scenes and Visiting the Districts
In the beginning of the story, Katniss and Peeta are still victors, so they are sent to dutifully tour the districts of Panem (all the while dealing with the looming threat of President Snow’s watchful eye). One of the perks of working in Atlanta is that the city already has a modern monorail system in place, so perhaps locals will spot their trusty trains being used for the movie. All aboard!
