Jennifer Lawrence went deaf in one ear. The many diving scenes were causing her a lot of ear infections. Then, a jet from one of the cornucopia scenes punctured her eardrum and she lost hearing for months. Liam Hemsworth fractured his ankle but kept working. Josh Hutcherson took a kick to the head that caused a concussion.
Lawrence, playfighting, said she could clear his head with a high kick. She missed. Hutcherson said the actress felt so bad about it she was crying. Sam Claflin broke his finger poking Lawrence with a trident. Don’t mess with Ms. Lawrence!
The Foxface Conspiracy Theory
Accident or planned? Foxface was a very smart 14-year-old from District 5 who excelled at the edible plants' test. She discovered the nightlock berries that Peeta had collected and stole some from his stash. It looked like an accident.

Donald Sutherland. He really wanted the role. Sutherland came across the script for “The Hunger Games.” He was so keen on portraying the power-driven leader that he read the entire trilogy and then penned a letter to director Gary Ross.
In a detailed, three-page missive, he laid out his vision of the character and his great interest in being totalitarian. He told “GQ,” “I wasn’t offered it. I like to read scripts, and it captured my passion.”

This was not part of the plan. Finnick was a hero. He led the plot to take Snow out. He was a rebel. He was an elite from District 4. He seemed invincible. How could Finnick die? And then to be killed by a pack of ignoble mutts? It’s too much.
But at least we didn’t have to actually see him die by getting his head bitten off as the book portrays it.
A113 is a Secret Code Placed In Every Pixar Film The animators, who studied together as students, came up with the identification mark. When they graduated to Pixar moviemakers, they stuck it in for fun.
In the scene where Snow is observing Katniss on the monitor, there is a teeny, tiny A113 in the far-right bottom corner.
