Not only is The Hunger Games: Catching Fire finally hitting theaters this weekend, but the holiday season is right around the corner, meaning it’s time to snatch up all the Hunger Games merchandise you can. We checked Etsy for some of the best of the best handmade gifts to give your favorite fan (or perhaps yourself).
Fortunately The Hunger Games is a very fictional event, but that doesn’t mean we can’t use the concept of having to fight for our lives as motivation at the gym. Slip on this tank top from Fast Designs and pump up the Hunger Games soundtrack. The moment “Horn of Plenty” kicks in, you’ll be standing tall and proud, pumped to show off some physical prowess.

‘The Hunger Games’ Countdown: Holiday Shopping Ideas For The Tribute In Your Life
Sure, the official Hunger Games trailer is fantastic enough to hold us all over for quite a while, but thanks to Mainstay Productions, we have yet another Hunger Games trailer to be thankful for: the teaser for their web series, Finnick & Annie. Due out on December 8th, the series will focus on our local District 4 heartthrob, Finnick Odair, and the love of his life, former Hunger Games champion, Annie Cresta. Click here to give the Finnick & Annie teaser a look.
In other visual news, a new trailer still of Amandla Stenberg as Rue in her training attire has popped up as well as a small handful of images from People Magazine in honor of their recent Hunger Games feature. In addition to the shots of Elizabeth Banks as Effie handing over the microphone to Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss and the one of Katniss having a moment with Liam Hemsworth’s Gale, we also got that particularly colorful entry featuring Lenny Kravitz as Cinna, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta all looking their best (see below).
Sticking with the theme of HG imagery, The Hob has a fairly amusing two-part piece up and running called “Hunger Games Fans Have an Eye for Details.” As someone who’s worked on a number of short films, I’m well aware of how difficult it can be to maintain continuity. Regardless of the crews’ watchful eyes, tiny details inevitably slip and Hunger Games fans are wasting no time pinpointing the mishaps. Part 1 and Part 2 of the piece highlight a handful of errors including Prim’s Mockingjay pin magically hopping lapels in between shots and the fact that a pair of Converse sneakers have a cameo in the trailer.
