Episode 98 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live this Monday, March 11, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include some of our fabulous friends from Down with the Capitol, Crystal of Mockingjay.net and FictionalFood.net, Courtney of Welcome to District 12, Tiffany from Victor’s Village, Natalie of Tor.com, and Ariel of Nerdy, Wordy, and Over Thirty.
Well, this past week was certainly eventful! Nine more Capitol Portraits featuring Haymitch, Cinna, Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Finnick, Johanna, Beetee, and President Snow were unveiled by various media outlets. Lionsgate actually gave us the opportunity to exclusively release Beetee’s portrait along with the other Capitol Tastemakers, which was a pretty incredible — and nerve-wracking — experience!
As you may have guessed, we’ll be spending the entirety of Episode 98 discussing the portraits! Specifically, we’ll be focusing on:
– Our first look at Jeffrey Wright and Jena Malone in character as Beetee and Johanna, respectively
– Trish Summerville’s costumes
– Katniss’s wedding dress (the dress was confirmed to be the wedding dress by Trish Summerville in this exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter)
– What the choice of featured characters may reveal about Catching Fire marketing (and the film itself)
– The significance of the roses
As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts, so please leave a comment below telling us [briefly] what you think about the portraits. Which one is your favorite? Who do you wish would have been included? How do you feel about the wedding dress being revealed this early? We’ll read as many of your comments during the show as possible!
