The Hunger Games arena to be shot in IMAX

Nov 27 2012, 10:02am CST | by

'The Hunger Games' star Josh Hutcherson has let slip that the arena in sequel 'Catching Fire' will be filmed for supersize IMAX.

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' arena will be filmed in IMAX.
Josh Hutcherson - who plays Peeta Mellark in the sequel to this year's smash hit 'Hunger Games' - has revealed scenes taking place in the arena will be enhanced for supersize IMAX screens.
The arena is the battleground where two young tributes from each fictional District fight to the death to win the Hunger Games competition.
Josh told MTV News: ''So when you go see it in IMAX, you'll see the regular movie when we're in the Districts and in the Capitol. When you see us go up in the pod in the games, it will open up into IMAX. It will be amazing. It's very cool.''
The 20-year-old actor admitted he had seen footage from the highly anticipated film and praised new director Francis Lawrence - who replaces Gary Ross - for his vision and advanced special effects in the nail-biting scene where the tributes enter the arena.
Josh continued: ''They actually built a cornucopia in Atlanta that we shot at, and it looks amazing, and the way that the spokes got out, and the way everyone comes up on the pedestals and the water - it looks incredible.
''I've seen some of the CG renderings that Francis has worked on, and they look really, really great.''

ESCOBAR: PARADISE LOST Review | TIFF 2014

Sep 7 2014 9:49pm CDT | Source: Collider

Did you know Pablo Escobar was a bad guy?  It’s true!  He was a powerful, charismatic drug lord who won the love of the people with charitable acts, but he was also a ruthless murderer because that comes with the job description.  Andrea Di Stefano’s Escobar: Paradise Lost is painfully predictable as it latches onto Escobar’s reputation to tell a bland, generic thriller that wastes the talent of its lead actors.  Di Stefano does fli ...

15 Times That A Jennifer Lawrence "Reveal" Was Actually Amazing

Sep 3 2014 3:06pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Oftentimes Hollywood seems so stiff and distant. If I wanted that kind of relationship I would just talk to my parents more often. There’s a definite barrier between the famous and the not. This totally makes sense, but sometimes I wonder what these celebrities that our society idolizes are like in real life.For instance, I've seen Edward Norton in tons of movies and interviews, but do I know what he's actually like as a person? Absolutely no ...
