We all know it’s hard enough to maintain movie set-secrecy in the age of internet journalism with potential spies and secret spillers everywhere, but et tu, Google?
Yes indeed, if you want to not be spoiled about a key set in this fall’s sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, then avert your eyes now. In other words: SPOILERS!!!
For the rest of you, you may or may not know that Catching Fire brings us the 75th edition of the Hunger Games, the Quarter Quell. In the book, champions from all previous Hunger Games are entered to be competitors, including our hero Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). The layout of the arena is, shall we say, unique. Check out the view from Google Earth:
If you’re curious, and you haven’t read the book, the arena is clock shaped, like a giant sundial. New horrors are unleashed at the top of every hour as the light of the sun or the moon moves across the sky. You can click to embiggen if you like.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Liam Hemsworth, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright, and Amanda Plummer opens November 22nd.
