Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Adds American Horror Story Actress
How Rabe’s character will fit into the world of Panem will be detailed below, which will offer spoilers for Catching Fire and Mockingjay. So, if you haven’t read the books and don’t want anything spoiled, considered yourself warned...
Julianne Moore Confirmed As President Coin In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay
In The Hunger Games and soon in Catching Fire, Donald Sutherland has created an indelible portrait of evil power as President Snow, the leader of a government so cruel that it keeps its people in check by sending children to fight to the death in the Hunger Games. But it's time for another person to take on a position of power and challenge Snow, so naturally that person is… Julianne Moore?
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Adds 90210 Veteran As Messalla
You may not recognize Ross unless you're a fan of the new 90210, on which he played Charlie Selby for nine episodes, or caught him as Kevin in Jeff Who Lives At Home, the kid whom Jason Segel's nutty character befriends thanks to what he believes is a sign from the universe. He's also Diana Ross's son, if you're into that kind of thing
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Has Found Finnick's Annie
Lionsgate, according to a release, revealed that Australian actress Stef Dawson has been selected to play Cresta in the two-part Mockingjay adaptation, which will be directed by Francis Lawrence. Cresta is the District 4 victor from the 70th Hunger Games.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Reveals New Trailer: Remember Who The Real Enemy Is
Catching Fire wowed the crowds in Comic-Con's Hall H today, but one of the big highlights-- the brand-new trailer-- is available for us to watch online right now, via Yahoo!. A lot of the footage is familiar from earlier glimpses at the film, and Lionsgate is still sticking with their strategy of not marketing any scenes of fighting in the arena
Hunger Games: Catching Fire Character Posters Mean Wetsuits For Everyone
With an highly anticipated Hall H panel planned for Saturday afternoon in San Diego Comic-Con, Lionsgate continues beating the drum for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Today, a series of character posters landed on the sequel’s Facebook page, starting with Katniss and Peeta.
5 Things We Learned From The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Teaser
Fans may be a bit disappointed by the limited scope of the trailer, which only shows us everything that happens up until Katniss and Peeta re-enter the arena (it's also up for debate whether the film is considering that reveal a spoiler, though given how much they're likely to promote the character of Finnick, I doubt it). But in this exceedingly well-cut and surprisingly emotional tease, I think there were 5 strong clues about what we can expect from the entirety of Catching Fire. Let's dig in
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Teaser Trailer: The Odds Are Never In Our Favor
It's surprising how much emphasis in this goes to Donald Sutherland's President Snow, who's watching Katniss's victory tour and realizes that the glitz of the Capitol isn't able to overcome the simmering revolution that Katniss has accidentally started. The most shocking line in the trailer-- "Her species must be eradicated"-- doesn't appear in the book
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Tease Reveals The Victory Tour
What's kind of insane, though, is that in the 2 seconds she spends on screen, Jennifer Lawrence manages to tell us a whole lot about where we find her heroine Katniss at the beginning of the film. Fans of the book are well aware, of course, that Catching Fire finds Katniss and Peeta on their Victory Tour...
President Snow's Hunger Games: Catching Fire Portrait Is A Silent Menace
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire won't come to theaters until November 22, and sadly we have no idea if this series of portraits is leading up to a trailer premiere (my guess is we might have to wait until the MTV Movie Awards, on April 14, since you know those are common audiences
Peeta Reveals His Wedding Suit In New Hunger Games: Catching Fire Portrait
I'm not really sure how long they can keep up this pace of revealing two new "Capitol Couture" portraits every day, but us Hunger Games fans sure are enjoying it while it lasts. Capitol residents Effie Trinket, Caesar Flickerman and Cinna have shown off their finery, and Katniss has unveiled the wedding dress she wears to celebrate her fake wedding to Peeta
Jennifer Lawrence Stuns In A Wedding Dress In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Portrait
That Katniss Everdeen, always an iconoclast. While everyone else has been dutifully sitting in a chair for their official "Capitol Couture" portraits, when it came time for Katniss's turn, she chose to stand. Part of that's probably the necessity of the unbelievable dress she's wearing-- with that many ruffles and structural elements, there's pretty much no way she can move like a normal human. Check out Katniss's Couture portrait below
Effie Trinket Is Resplendent In The Hunger Games: Catching Fire's Capitol Couture
The heroine of the Hunger Games franchise, the inimitable Katniss Everdeen, is a girl who couldn't care less about makeup and jewels and clothes. She's forced to wear them, of course, in both The Hunger Games and especially Catching Fire, in which she and Peeta are sent on a victory tour to "celebrate" their wins in the Hunger Games
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Sticks With Writer Danny Strong
With two Emmy Awards under his belt for his writing contributions on the HBO miniseries Game Change, Danny Strong has taken on a number of feature projects, among which is the adaptation of the final Hunger Games book Mockingjay. Strong penned the screenplay for the first part of the planned two-part adaptation and he's now been approved to move forward on Part 2.
Moviegoing Isn't Dead After All: Attendance Spikes 5.6% In 2012
Every year the movie industry comes up with a way to brag that the previous year has been the best yet, and usually it's a sham. After all, the simple fact of inflation means that most years, you're going to make more in sheer dollars than you did the year before. 2012 was no different, with studios bragging about their highest-ever profits, but something special really did happen this year
