As you know, Entertainment Weekly’s Catching Fire edition (with FOUR collectible covers) hits shelves tomorrow, and thanks to our friends at THG Australia we have the scans from the article, which can be found below the cut!
Entertainment Weekly claims they have something that will please the fandom early next month! When asked on their tumblr if they had any Catching Fire news to share this is what they said:
Obviously we’ll have to wait until next month to find out what they have in store for us, but one thing is for sure: we’ve got a lot to look forward to between now and November 22nd!
Thank to Mockingjay.net for the tip!

Fans have spotted a new still featuring Katniss in her wedding dress being interviewed by Caesar Flickerman in the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly. Do my eyes deceive me, or are those the other tributes in the background?! It’s hard to tell, but at first glance it seems that Beetee, Mags, and Finnick are there. We’ll post an HQ version once it’s available!

EW released the first official photos from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire today! The latest cover features Finnick and Katniss in their arena uniforms.
Another photo of Finnick and Katniss was also released!
”Pressure, pressure, the pressure is on,” says good-natured Sam Claflin about stepping into the net of District 4’s charismatic golden boy. ”I’m on Twitter and so many people are like, ‘Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.’ People are just worried that I’m not going to be as sex god enough as Finnick should be. I’ve literally had four months of eating nothing but chicken and asparagus. I just want a burger and a beer.”
Late this afternoon, they released even more photos! This time featuring Katniss, Peeta, and Gale.
”Jen and Liam have amazing chemistry,” says director Francis Lawrence of his young stars. ”They have a nice moment right before Katniss is reaped that is the very first thing we shot. And then when Gale has been brought in from the whipping, that’s another really nice moment they have alone.” ”This the book where you have to understand the pull Katniss feels to both Peeta and Gale,” say producer Nina Jacobson.
”These are kids growing up in war who physically, emotionally can’t love somebody,” says Jennifer Lawrence about the uncomfortable triangle between District 12’s battle-weary Katniss, Peeta, and her childhood friend Gale that began in The Hunger Games. ”Katniss thinks she can’t have a crush on a boy because she’s worried about survival every single day. And she can’t be a normal 16-year-old meeting her friend out in the woods and practicing kissing because that’s not the world that they live in.”
This is certainly an exciting day fans! What do you think, Tributes? To read excerpts of interviews from cast and crew members, head over to EW!
UPDATE: Even more photos have been released! This time we see Plutarch Heavensbee and Haymitch, Prim and Mrs. Everdeen, and President Snow! I don’t know about you, but my inner fangirl is going insane right now!
Who is YOUR Girl on Fire: Katniss Everdeen or Alicia Keys? As far as we knew, it was Katniss, but now Keys seems poised to try and take the mantle. See this story from EW.com about Keys’ new album and how it relates to The Hunger Games:
For our Fall Music Preview, on stands tomorrow, we spoke to Alicia Keys about her upcoming album, Girl on Fire, due Nov. 27 — and she had plenty to say about the recording process, getting the tiniest member of her family in the studio, and why that title is not a reference to a certain bow-and-arrow-wielding girl warrior. Read on:
EW: Let’s start with your album title, Girl on Fire. I know that you wrote that you wanted to make a change in your life and represent a new journey and a fresh start, but is the title also influenced by The Hunger Games?
Alicia Keys: You know, the funny thing is that it’s actually not. It was such a shock when I heard about The Hunger Games — I wasn’t aware of the book at that point. And I didn’t realize that, I guess, that’s what they call the one girl. So we tried very hard to make it all work and put the song in — and to put parts of what I was developing in with the movie. Anyway, obviously it came out way too early, so the timing wasn’t right. But, no, it has nothing to do with The Hunger Games. That powerful feeling is what it’s all about.

If it was an innocent coincidence — and we’re inclined to believe Keys when she says that — then no harm, no foul. It does make us wonder, though: Would an Alicia Keys song have been nice on the “Songs from District 12 and Beyond” soundtrack? We know Keys can do New York, but could she have done District 12?
