Yesterday a mysterious website dedicated to the series' menacing dictator district The Capitol popped up online. Some details from EW.com:
A new website — presumably operated by Lionsgate (who has not responded to EW’s queries regarding the site) and fictionally operated by the novel’s evil Capitol — allows users to randomly register in a Panem district.
It also offers a “Countdown to the 74th Hunger Games” that, conveniently enough, take place on March 23, 2012, the day of the Gary Ross-helmed release, and a “Capitol Announcements” news ticker that informs users of gems like, “Reminder: Communication with Avoxes is strictly forbidden. Loose lips attract a peacekeeper’s whip!”
Another offering from the Capitol’s website: The number of tesserae — i.e. food credits that enter tributes into the Hunger Games raffle — claimed by each district.
I connected through Facebook and
Not sure what is to come from The Capitol site, but I am very excited to start receiving transmissions from President Snow!
If you have no idea what I'm talking about then you need to read The Hunger Games immediately!
