'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' trailer is ready to debut at Comic-Con 2014 next week, but not in the traditional Hall H setting. What?! No epic grandstanding? That's right! Instead of waiting all day (and sometimes all night) for a seat to a 'Hunger Games' panel, your first look at footage will be coming instead from Samsung's Galaxy Tab S.
President Snow is back with another message for the citizens of Panem. After the first 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1' teaser video hit the airwaves, showing us Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) seemingly siding with the tyrannical President Snow (Donald Sutherland), a new presidential address debuted -- before ultimately getting hijacked by the rebels of District 13.
'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1' continues its streak of viral marketing with a message from President Snow himself (played by Donald Sutherland) as he addresses the citizens of Panem with Katniss' District 12 cohort and love interest Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) by his side. While this, along with its TheCapitol.pn homebase, may seem like a fun way of promoting the film, it actually points to a plot point to come in the movie.
On tonight's all-new episode of 'SNL,' 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star Josh Hutcherson stops by to host -- presumably because Jennifer Lawrence is a bit too busy. Not that we're complaining! It's Hutcherson's first time on the 30 Rock stage and we can't wait to see what the night has in store. We're sure 'SNL' will pay, uh, tribute to 'The Hunger Games' in some fashion. Read on for our review of tonight's episode!
When the closing credits rolled after the original 'The Hunger Games,' I thought to myself "eh, not bad." But I was in no rush to see the follow-up. When the closing credits rolled after Francis Lawrence's 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,' after I was able to collect myself, I was fully prepared to run out and get a mockingjay tattoo. Over my heart. With the phrase, "I will lay down my life for you, Katniss Everdeen, because you are the first and finest true hero of 21st century cinema."
'SNL''s first turn with 'ArtPop' sensation Lady Gaga as host proved surprisingly capital, but will the same hot streak continue with 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star Josh Hutcherson? The first promos for J-Law's futuristic co-star have arrived, and if you've ever wanted to see the 21-year-old star punched in the face, this weekend's 'SNL' is for you!
'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' picks up almost exactly where the first film ended, with Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) embarking on a victory tour to celebrate their surviving the Hunger Games and to spread government propaganda and fear. This section of the book (and, we imagine, the movie) is fairly action-free, but still pretty harrowing. A new clip from the film shows that a couple of good actors in a room can be just as exciting as an action scene.
The tie-in promotional hit single hasn't been as popular/successful as it once was outside of the Bond movies (anyone remember the Soundgarden song in 'The Avengers'?), but that's not stopping 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' from featuring the new single from Christian Aguilera. To help sell the movie (and the song "We Remain") there's a brand new TV spot.
While this weekend's all-new 'SNL' installment featuring 'Scandal' star Kerry Washington and musical guest Eminem will prove an episode to watch, its forthcoming lineup is really on fire. Not only has Lady Gaga been confirmed to both host and perform in the subsequent installment, but the week to follow will see 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star Josh Hutcherson take the stage!
We're almost to the release of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' on November 22, so how's a look at the final posters and campaign art, and up-close looks at some of the cast members? Jennifer Lawrence is ready to literally set the world ablaze as she re-enters the kill-or-be-killed arena.
