15 Crazy ‘The Hunger Games’ Facts in One Video
So, you think it’s all fun and games being a movie star and filming the biggest movie of the year? Tell that to Jennifer Lawrence, the star of the ‘Hunger Games’ franchise who, while shooting one of the ‘Catching Fire‘ Cornucopia scenes, had a powerful water jet blast her right in the ear, leaving her partially deaf. All for your entertainment! That’s just one of the little known bits of trivia packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on the biggest film of 2013, ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’.
‘Catching Fire’ made over $420 million at the box office last year, beating out even the invincible Iron Man. A pretty impressive task. As the ‘Hunger Games’ franchise wraps up with the two-part ‘Mockingjay‘ films, we looked back at some of the craziest facts from the last film.
For example, did you know that in the scene where Jena Malone’s Johanna Mason strips down in front of Katniss, Peeta and Haymitch in the elevator, that was shot in a real, glass elevator at a hotel in Atlanta…that wasn’t closed to the public. So, if you were on vacation you might have caught a glimpse as you were on your way back to the room.
