Episode 108 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live this Monday, May 27, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include Ellie from Down with the Capitol, Rebekah from Victor’s Village, and Courtney from Welcome to District 12!
Here’s what we have planned for this week:
– We’ll kick off the show by weighing in on the news that COVERGIRL has partnered with Lionsgate to launch an advertising campaign and makeup collection inspired by the Capitol. In light of this announcement and the lavish Capitol-themed Catching Fire party at Cannes, many fans have begun to wonder if Lionsgate’s “glorification” of the Capitol has gone too far. What do you think? Do things like the COVERGIRL collection, Capitol Couture, and last year’s China Glaze nail polish line detract from the important messages contained within the Hunger Games trilogy? Or are they simply fun marketing strategies that we shouldn’t worry about?
– We’ll spend the latter portion of the show discussing the recent outbreak of “Peeta Paranoia” that has taken over large segments of the fandom. Peeta hasn’t been very visible in Catching Fire promotions thus far; is this a sign that his role is being significantly reduced for the movies? A lot of people seem to think so. We try to put this worry to rest.
