‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1’: 16 Biggest Differences Between the Book and the Movie

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).

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1’ is a movie comprised almost entirely of deleted scenes. As it says right in the title, this isn’t the final chapter of ‘The Hunger Games’ series; it’s just the first half of the final chapter, and that’s exactly what it feels like. It’s table setting for a meal that won’t be served until next November. ‘Mockingjay - Part 1’ is good-looking, well-acted, and utterly inessential.

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...

‘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.

A nice Canadian boy goes down to Colombia with his brother to surf some waves, but then he meets and falls in love with the beautiful niece of a major Colombian drug lord, and decides to join the family business expecting to live happily ever after—because nothing ever goes wrong when you get into the cocaine business, right? The first trailer for ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’ is yet another cautionary tale about the dangers of getting mixed up in the cocaine trade, but this time with Josh Hutcherson, surfing, and Benicio Del Toro portraying one of the most infamous drug lords in history.

You'd think that after three 'Hunger Games' movies, star Josh Hutcherson would have tapped into new levels of athleticism and competitive achievement. You'd be wrong. The actor hit 'The Tonight Show' last night to talk about the latest entry in the blockbuster film franchise, and it really only did some natural that he and host Jimmy Fallon would engage in some good-natured gamesmanship.

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' TV Spot: Peeta Has a Message for the Districts

EDIT

Many of the first teasers and trailers for the first chapter of 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' were very Katniss-focused, which isn't a bad thing at all -- we love our Katniss. But they were mysteriously absent of Peeta, until recently. The first official TV spot for 'Mockingjay' has Peeta sending a message from the Capitol to the Districts, and he's at the side of President Snow. But hey, at least he's okay?

One of the people we haven't seen a whole lot of in the more recent trailers for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' is Peeta. Yes, we saw him in those earlier "message from Capitol" teasers, all in white with President Snow and Joanna, but the trailers for the latest installment of Katniss' harrowing journey have been mostly absent of her bread-making friend. Until now! And it looks like Gale is not too pleased about it.

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.
