Hunger Games Exhibition Contest

Shortly after it opened, we were lucky enough to be able to visit the Hunger Games Exhibition in New York City. We spent hours in there interacting with the exhibits and taking pictures. In addition, we got some great Hunger Games Exhibition merchandise to give away to our readers! Keep reading to see some of the great shots that we got plus how you can enter to win a Hunger Games Exhibition Prize Pack.

Hunger Games Exhibition Review

We attended the Exhibition on only the second day that it was open, so it was a little bit rocky. The employees had a hard time with things like getting our pictures in front of the green screen and couldn’t answer all of our questions about the Mobile Guide. In fact, we ended up paying for it even though it was supposed to come free when we bought our ticket with our American Express Card and even then we couldn’t use all of the features of it.

That said, it was only the second day. And the problems we experienced were more than likely cleared up with a little more experience. It definitely wouldn’t stop us from recommending it! As for the Mobile Guide itself, it definitely added to the experience by “unlocking” certain hidden features throughout the Exhibition.

The actual exhibits ranged from educational to just plain breathtaking. They used a lot of elaborate projections and screens to make you feel like you were right in the middle of the movies. Here are a couple of my favorite “scenes” from the Exhibition:

hunger-games-capitol

This scene shows the absolute over-the-top excess of the Capitol. You can see all of the bright colors and the massive buffet filled with food and drinks.

hunger-games-chariot

One corner of the Exhibition featured a life-size “Girl on Fire” scene from the movie. You can get a good sense of the costumes as well as the flowers and the chariot. And the fire seemed so real!

There were also a number of interactive areas where you could learn about some of the science behind The Hunger Games and take part in experiments. They even had a “training” area where you could learn how the actors trained for the movie.

At the end there was a section of costumes from the Hunger Games movies, mainly those that Katniss wore. You couldn’t get incredibly close to them, but definitely close enough to get pictures. How gorgeous is this?

We probably spent about 2.5 hours in the Exhibition, although I think we could have even spent more. Definitely try to go when it is not as busy because it’s harder to get pictures and fully participate in the interactive parts as it gets busier. We found that it got busier as the morning went on.

It’s been awhile since we have done a weekly news roundup, but there is so much Hunger Games news to report in the last week that we figured it was better to just link out to some of our favorite stories than to try to duplicate it ourselves. Except the news at the very bottom of the post….which you will have to read to in order to find out!

All new posters are being released! As part of the “Faces of the Revolution” campaign, you can see pictures of many of the final movie characters in war paint. This article from Entertainment weekly shows one of our favorites, Gale Hawthorne.

 

We’re starting to see some stills from the final movie, including this incredibly moving picture of Effie and Katniss. (from MTV and Entertainment Weekly)

 

Conan O’Brien will be covering Comic-Con starting July 8. Be sure to tune in for visits from the cast of The Hunger Games on July 9. Jennifer, Josh, and Liam should all be there. It will be followed by the Comic-Con panel on Thursday, which will be moderated by Conan.

 

If you have read Mockingjay, you know that there are some MAJOR things to come in the final movie. Do you think that any of them will be changed from the book? Moviepilot discusses some of the things that they think will shock viewers.

 

Lionsgate has selected San Francisco as the second stop for its “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition” following a six-month run at Discovery Times Square in New York City.

Speaking of the Hunger Games Exhibition, we were lucky enough to be able to attend it in New York the second day after it opened. Not only did we bring back some great pictures, but also some merchandise to give away! Stay tuned to our blog for more information coming this week.

We’ve seem so much Hunger Games news lately that we are not even trying to keep up with it on our blog. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook because we post there all day every day!

The synth-powered track will grace the ‘Mockingjay – Part 1′ soundtrack

 

The effects of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s loss probably won’t be felt until next year, when The Hunger Games franchise finally wraps with Mockingjay: Part 2 . That means we will have similar discussions about the work he did on the franchise, and our chance to say goodbye to this acting titan, a year from now.

Earlier this week, Republic Records released the official audio for Dead Air by CHVRCHES, which reminded JabberJays.net of the 80s and inspired them to create a 1980s soundtrack for Mockingjay.

 

Get ready to see a new Hunger Games sketch or two on Saturday Night Live soon. Woody Harrelson, who stars in the popular film franchise, has been tapped to host SNL on Nov. 15.

 

In the upcoming issue of Empire magazine, director Francis Lawrence spoke a bit about THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 1 and given that the Harry Potter franchise will see at least three spinoff films, Lawrence discussed whether or not something like that may be a possibility for the Hunger Games as well.

 

Want to meet Jennifer Lawrence in the VIP Room at the premiere of Mockingjay? Here’s your chance to win and support a great cause!
