Well, it's about time this technology was put to good use!
As we've all seen by now, the satellite imagery employed by Google Maps to show its users aerial shots or "street views" of the destination they're investigating can every now and then result in unexpected nudity and other "WTF is that person doing?" moments that set the internet ablaze!
However, we're very happy to report that for once, we actually WANT to take a closer look at what the application has turned up for us:
The Atlanta set of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!
That's right, anyone looking for directions to either Clayton County International Park and Atlanta Motor Speedway will be thrilled to know that by using Google Maps, they can garner their first look at two very important set pieces of the much-anticipated follow-up to the Jennifer Lawrence-starring flick, including the Tribute Parade featured in the beginning chapters of the Suzanne Collins novel and later, the Cornucopia that sets into the motion the action of the Quarter Quell!
Ch-ch-check 'em out (above and below)!
Wowza! Even looking at this stuff from the distance that we are, we can tell that this sequel is going to take on a WILDLY different aesthetic than the first!
And that could be a good thing!
Remember how much more badass Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was compared to Chris Columbus' take on the first two flicks?!
But frankly, at this point we're MOST excited to see how the magic of the movies will morph the location of the Quarter Quell's Cornucopia from a water park in Georgia to where the rest of the cast and crew shot the scene…on the beaches of Hawaii!
How about U?? To what are U most looking forward in Hunger Games: Catching Fire??
