Hunger Games Set Reveals Cornucopia In Aerial Photos

Francis Lawrence continues to shoot the anticipated Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, as the crew works toward a November release date. After filming scenes in the tropical climates of Hawaii, the production appears to have moved to the Atlanta Motor Speedway, where Lawrence has the room to shoot the Tributes parade.

Aerial photography of some Catching Fire locations were submitted to the Web site The Hob, and if you look closely, you can spot the Cornucopia that seems to have been set up at a location dubbed "The Beach" in Georgia’s Clayton County International Park. Here are the pics:

OK, so you really have to squint to get a good look at the Cornucopia, which hopefully will look much bigger once the kids start fighting to the death in the Hunger Games sequel.

The Web has more information on "The Beach." (Read it here.) Apparently it’s a man-made beach facility that mimics a seaside experience without leaving the confines of rural Georgia. The Hunger Games crew used this spot back in November to film Arena scenes, according to The Hob. It probably was used to shoot closeups while the actors were shooting in Atlanta without having to drag everyone back to Hawaii – as if that would be such a tragedy.

Catching Fire continues the story of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) as she embarks on a victory tour after surviving the brutal game staged in the first movie. Joining Lawrence will be Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks and Sam Claflin. The sequel opens everywhere on Nov. 22.
