No one expected 'The Hunger Games' to do as well as it did. Sure, everyone was expecting a big hit, but no one was expecting the major blockbuster numbers the film pulled off when it was released back in March. Naturally, Lionsgate did the fiscally (if not creatively) responsible thing: they put a sequel on the front burner and turned up the heat. Today, it was revealed that 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is set to begin filming in Atlanta this July.
Oscar-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence is getting to be quite the genre-hopper. After tackling superhero movies with 'X-Men: First Class' and sci-fi with 'The Hunger Games,' the young star has now turned her attention to horror and now we have an official poster for her first horror film, 'House at the End of the Street'.
Poor Jennifer Lawrence, she's probably a bit tired having to travel all around the world in order to promote her film. At the same time, she gets to see the world. That's not entirely bad. After all, she gets to show up on some zany talks shows and show everyone how great of an archer she is.
What an interesting clash of cultures. Katniss Everdeen, butt-kicking savior of Suzanne Collins’ ‘The Hunger Games,’ stands for independence, self-sacrifice and survival under harsh conditions. Barbie, the iconic Mattel toy, stands for bathing suits, nightgowns and flirting with Ken. Can the two ideals intertwine?
There's a new rule in Hollywood: if you make a franchise picture, you're going to be signed to a multiple-picture contract. For Jennifer Lawrence, it may have been the price to pay for both 'X-Men: First Class' and 'The Hunger Games.' Who knew both would generate sequels? There was squabbling between 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate about who could have her first for their sequels, but it seems that argument is over. 'X-Men: First Class 2' (or whatever it's called) will start shooting in January.
Most 20-year-olds spend their early mornings getting ready for work or school (or maybe sleeping off the previous night's kegger). But on January 25th of last year, 'The Hunger Games' star Jennifer Lawrence spent her pre-dawn hours in raucous celebration after she found out she'd been nominated for an Oscar. While she looks calm and composed on the Oscar red carpet above, below you can see what it looks like when a 20-year-old finds out she's been nominated for Best Actress.
