You may be wondering why I’m posting about The Hunger Games. We’ve never posted on movies before, especially a movie trailer. But, we’ve never had one of our Directors in a movie before! Just before counselors arrived for training, our own Jon Brooks spent a couple days as a background extra in the role of a Peacekeeper in the upcoming movie. He was in several scenes, none more emotionally charged than the Reaping. But little did Jon know that he would be the unknown face next to Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) when the trailer premiered yesterday!
We had a lot of fun in the office watching the scene and grabbing screen shots to share with family. Lo and behold, though, that particular shot was featured on the front page of Yahoo! and E! online. Crazy, huh?
With parental approval, the movie should be a lot of fun since it was the popular book at Rockmont this summer for both staff and campers. To see it played out will be exciting. Adding to the interest in our area is the fact that many of the scenes from The Arena were shot not far from Rockmont property!
