The penultimate entry into the sprawling and blood-stained 'Hunger Games' franchise takes a decidedly hip and totally en vogue approach to its final two movies—splitting one (relatively slim) novel into two feature films, all the better to dive deeper into the burning revolution headed up by a reluctant Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), further explore the various districts that make up Panem, and just make piles of cash in the process. ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I’ might be half a story (and our review says as much), but it's pretty remarkable that screenwriters Danny Strong and Peter Craig were able to squeeze out an entire 123-minute feature film from 187 pages of a single novel (yes, we counted).
Yes, the internet just shook with squeals of glee (no pun intended): the ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ trailer has arrived and, for better or worse, it looks like a whole lot more of the same. For fans, that's perfectly okay! Why fix something that clearly isn't broken? For the people who just couldn't deal with the first entry, this one promises all kinds of new nightmares and/or migraines.
Remember how Elizabeth Banks had such a great time during the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, accepting one of those golden popcorn trophies from the 'Magic Mike' hunks? Now she's getting even more love from Channing Tatum and his crew with a role in 'Magic Mike 2,' which officially revealed the full cast roster and plot details.
It was revealed not too long ago that Lorde would not only be contributing a new song for the 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1' soundtrack, but also curating the entire album. Now, a couple months away from the film's theatrical premiere, the "Royals" singer has released her new track to feature in the third installment of the popular film series, and you can listen to it right here.
A new 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' trailer is finally here, and we're not just talkin' about that teasery footage of Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen from Comic-Con. Lionsgate has been teasing this sneak peek all week, releasing brief snippets of footage here and there, but here's our first full look at Part 1 of the epic finale.
‘Love & Mercy’ – which premiered this week at the Toronto International Film Festival – isn’t the first movie to try to explore the life of Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. There was the 1990 television movie ‘Summer Dreams: The Story of the Beach Boys,’ which told the story from the late Dennis Wilson’s perspective. Then there was the more expensive-looking, but still made for television ‘The Beach Boys: An American Family’ that aired in 2000. So, yes, we’ve seen Brian Wilson’s mental health dramatized before.
It's official: look out, Panem because the Capitol has just become the official target of a group of rebels operating out of District 13 -- a district once thought to be destroyed. The latest bit of marketing for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1' has introduced us to the official logo of District 13 and delivered a mysterious website for you to puzzle over.
Comic-Con 2014 has brought us yet another delightful treat: the first full trailer for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1.' With the film's release only four months away, it's time to ignite the rebellion as we return to Panem with Katniss and Co. in the first part of the riveting conclusion to the trilogy.
Netflix has long since earned its reputation as the patron saint of canceled TV series, owing to its resurrections of both 'Arrested Development' and 'The Killing,' but the latest property pulled from the scrap heap is wet, hot, and altogether unexpected. Might Netflix look to reunite the A-list (and 40+) cast of cult classic 'Wet Hot American Summer' for a prequel TV series?
Earlier today, Lionsgate released our first official look at 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1,' the third installment of the blockbuster franchise led by Jennifer Lawrence. Not only did we get our first look at newcomer Julianne Moore as District 13's President Coin, we also glimpsed the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, who passed away before finishing his work and would reportedly be inserted into more scenes through special effects. To calm fans' nerves a bit, however, director Francis Lawrence has finally addressed the matter.
