Lionsgate got the ball rolling on their Hunger Games promotion pretty quickly! After months of nothing but some casting updates and a promo shot of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Lionsgate has finally put up the official movie site, released a pretty freakin’ cool “motion poster“, released the official poster, announced some little giveaways, and announced some special goodies for those lucky enough to be at Comic Con! And I’m… not really any closer to having just my simple site theme up. DON’T WORRY! I’LL HAVE IT UP SOON ENOUGH! I’ll probably work on it exhaustively this weekend, get some feedback from some fellow fans, then stick’er on up here. Get PUMPED, my fellow wanna-be tributes!**
Below you can see some shots from Comic-Con (all credit goes to Mockingjay.net) showing part of the promo Lionsgate is putting on for the film. Currently they’re giving out replica Mockingjay pins to attendees (also below), and they’re supposed to start handing out posters to attendees soon as well! Anyone who’s there and reading this: go pick one up in honor of me!
Lionsgate also announced a “Mini Poster Giveaway Bonanza-fest-4-All-Ages (Ages 4-12 not allowed)”. Except they didn’t call it that at all. But they ARE giving away Hunger Games mini posters at movie theaters this weekend. Participating theaters include:
Be sure to check their sites out to see how/when you can win one!
I will leave you all today with one final non-Hunger-Games thought. Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse had a rather interesting exchange via Twitter earlier today regarding what most of the world assumes to be secrets regarding LOST. Most interesting to me was Carlton’s claim that “@DamonLindelof Once again: We don’t need to prove anything to anybody.” followed by Damon’s response: “@CarltonCuse We always knew and we can PROVE we always knew, yet you want to keep the smoking gun in the holster. WHY?” Hope to Heaven something comes of this mysterious conversation, because I feel rather… dare I say it… LOST.
May the odds… ‘n’ such,
** Actually, it would probably be bad to want to be a tribute, as our favorite main characters didn’t even want to be… and all those who did (the careers) mostly sucked as human beings.
