Canuck-based mini-studio Lionsgate has partnered with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer to launch The Hunger Games Explorer, the branded online home for all things related to the Nov. 22 release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The site will serve as a social aggregation destination, allowing both official and fan-generated content to be pulled from multiple social media platforms. As well, users will be able to search, filter and share content directly from the site, according to a joint statement from the companies.

“With The Hunger Games Explorer, we wanted to change the game for how a movie can be extended to the web, providing an intensely immersive experience for fans,” said Roger Capriotti, director, Internet Explorer marketing, in a statement.
