This week, the third ‘Hunger Games’ movie, which follows the first part of the third book, will be released into theaters. It is called ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,’ which is a lot of words. But, here we are. Already, ‘The Hunger Games...

Francis Lawrence, the director of three out of the four ‘Hunger Games’ movies, gets emotional when the subject of Philip Seymour Hoffman is discussed. It’s not so much grief at this point (it’s been over nine months since the actor’s death), but it’s...

‘SNL’ Scorecard: Woody Harrelson Wins the Quarter Quell

Woody Harrelson’s third time as host of ‘SNL’–and his first since way back in 1992 (he hosted just a few weeks after Jason Priestly)–was actually pretty great. Anticipation for an ‘SNL’ host is a fickle beast. Now, one might circle the calendar when he or she sees, say, Chris Rock’s name show up as host, then that show winds up being a bust. I suspect that not a lot of people were thinking, Oh, man, Woody Harrelson is hosting ‘SNL’! I need to cancel all of my plans because that will be one I can’t miss. Then Harrelson goes out and is everything we want out of a host: funny, up for anything, looks like he’s having fun, willing to sing a song about apples that is still stuck in my head. Anyway, he hosted the best show of the season so far and here is your ‘SNL’ Scorecard.

‘SNL’: Woody Harrelson Sings Taylor Swift With His ‘Hunger Games’ Co-Stars

When Woody Harrelson was revealed to be hosting ‘SNL’ just a few days before the new ‘Hunger Games’ movie was set to open in theaters, it was obvious that the massively popular franchise would, somehow, figure into at least one sketch. Surprisingly, that ended up being the opening monologue, which featured Harrelson performing his own version of Taylor Swift's ‘1989.’ With a little help from some friends.

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1’ Releases an Art Poster Worthy of Your Wall

The latest poster for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1’ is probably the coolest little bit of imagery we've seen for the film since much, much earlier in the marketing. We're thinking way back to those first all-white teasers with President Snow, Peeta, and Joanna, which were very off-putting and weird. There was also that exceedingly stylish poster campaign featuring heroes of the districts, which was unsettling in all its glossiness. Most of the posters and trailers we've seen since have been what we'd expect from a promotional campaign, so it's always nice to see something a little different.

Here is a brief list of things that happened during Jennifer Lawrence's appearance on 'The Late Show' last night: she sang with host David Letterman, the duo discussed tummy troubles, they chatted about bowling, they both totally biffed introducing a clip, Lawrence begged Letterman to not retire, they walked out during a live taping, and then Lawrence took over the entire show.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Being Crafted Around Magneto and Mystique, and Their Hot Mutant Love

While you'd think 'X-Men: Apocalypse' would focus the majority of its attention on its titular character, Fox and director have some different ideas. When you've got two of the hottest stars in Hollywood contractually obligated to star in your movie, you make them the center of the action. And, that's what is reportedly happening with the 'X-Men: Apocalypse' script, which is being developed around Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence and the burgeoning romance between Magneto and Mystique.

Things are looking pretty good for 'American Hustle' director David O. Russell, who has spent the past five years reinventing himself. The man who was once known more for being a pain in the ass on the set of 'I Heart Huckabees' and getting in a fistfight with George Clooney while shooting 'Three Kings' has emerged as the modern master of the crowd-pleaser, crafting straightforward entertainments that make big bucks at the box office and get a bunch of Oscar attention. That's the kind of combination that keeps you making movies and convinces every actor in Hollywood to get in line to work with you. And that's probably why Robert De Niro is in talks to join the cast of 'Joy,' which will be his third collaboration with Russell in three years.

Even lauded talents star in terrible films, but sometimes—as is the case with these ten thespians—they happen to star in the worst of the bunch during the exact same calendar year that they turned in those Oscar-worthy works. Oops.
