‘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.

When you speak to Sam Claflin, he is nothing like his ‘Hunger Games’ counterpart—he comes across as humble (an adjective that does not at all describe Finnick Odair) and he doesn’t quite understand why anyone would want to make such a fuss over him. As Claflin says, ‘The Hunger Games’ has brought him a lot more attention, but he can still walk down the street—it’s not quite the same phenomenon that he’s witnessed happen to a few of his co-stars. Ahead, Claflin discusses his pivotal role in this ‘Hunger Games’ chapter—which includes a prolonged filibuster used as a distraction during a rescue mission—and he explains how Finnick, in the heat of battle, can still have such perfect hair.
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...
Francis Lawrence, the director of three out of the four ‘Hunger Games’ movies, gets emotional when the subject of Philip Seymour Hoffman is discussed. It’s not so much grief at this point (it’s been over nine months since the actor’s death), but it’s...
The latest poster for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1’ is probably the coolest little bit of imagery we've seen for the film since much, much earlier in the marketing. We're thinking way back to those first all-white teasers with President Snow, Peeta, and Joanna, which were very off-putting and weird. There was also that exceedingly stylish poster campaign featuring heroes of the districts, which was unsettling in all its glossiness. Most of the posters and trailers we've seen since have been what we'd expect from a promotional campaign, so it's always nice to see something a little different.
The 40th anniversary season of 'SNL' took off this past weekend to recuperate from its Chris Rock outing, but 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' star Woody Harrelson won't rest in volunteering for the longrunning NBC sketch comedy show's Quarter Quell. See what the 'True Detective' star has to offer in Woody Harrelson's first 'SNL' promos of this Saturday's coming installment!
We're just a few weeks away from the release of 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1,' so we've been seeing a lot more teasers and clips from the next installment in the franchise -- and while the initial trailers focused on main characters like Katniss, Gale, and teasing the harrowing action to come in our hero's revolutionary fight against the Capitol, the latest peeks have been giving us a glimpse at some of the other characters, like newcomer Cressida, played by 'Game of Thrones' star Natalie Dormer.
How will Lionsgate continue on with the massive 'Hunger Games' blockbuster once the franchise comes to an end next year with the release of 'Mockingjay, Part 2'? Well, they're borrowing a page from the Disney playbook and adapting the films, and Suzanne Collins' novels, into a theatrical stage show that will open in London in 2016.
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?
The final trailer for 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1' is here and it's strictly business. At just over a minute long, it's packed full of big emotions and even bigger explosions, never even bothering to pause and fill you in on the plot because it already assumes that you saw the first two movies. Yeah, this movie is going to be huge.
