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.
'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.
If you're still laughing at the four fake YouTube movie trailers Jimmy Kimmel rolled out at on the special post-Oscars installment of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' the late-night host has a treat for you -- a hilarious behind-the-scenes look at just how they made some of Hollywood's most celebrated stars turn their talents to the outing.
In the first clip from 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,' Katniss Everdeen learns a valuable lesson about helping those in need. Boy, it's difficult to not imagine Mr. Rogers (R.I.P.) or some Disney Channel host voicing an introduction to the newly released footage. But, in all seriousness, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is dealing with some pretty intense issues for a teenager.
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.
It's been mentioned that 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' would focus more on the love triangle between Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), and the first TV spot plays that up by adding a Coldplay song to the background.
Jennifer Lawrence has a busy schedule. 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' hasn't even hit theaters yet, and she's already busy filming the third installment, 'Mockingjay, Part 1,' in Atlanta and will presumably go right into production on 'Part 2' shortly after. Photos from the set have already leaked out, so take your first glimpse at the third chapter in the film series.
While explaining his business model to the soon-to-be corporate spy Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth), tech magnate Nicolas Wyatt (Gary Oldman) relays a timeless adage: "Good artists copy. Great artists steal." That puts 'Paranoia' director Robert Luketic somewhere between the two superlatives, constructing his smart phone-enabled thriller out of every existing blueprint in history while winding up with an entertaining, functional finished product. The twists are inevitable, the turns come from a mile away, but a surprisingly charming and humble Hemsworth (no brooding 'Hunger Games' machismo here) becomes a reliable interface for the old mechanics. It makes sense to pair him with the aging Harrison Ford — if Hemsworth was around in the '70s, the two would be competing for all the same roles.
