Gary Ross Turns Down ‘The Hunger Games’ Sequel (For Real This Time)

Gary Ross
Lionsgate

After last week's announcement that Gary Ross was out of 'The Hunger Games' sequel 'Catching Fire,' word came quickly that his demise was greatly exaggerated. But now we've heard that this matter has been settled and that Ross is out for good this time. I don't think there's a take back option here. Gary Ross is not directing 'Catching Fire.'

‘The Hunger Games’ Joins the Top 10 “Banned Books” List

Hunger Games
Lionsgate/Scholastic

It's 2012 and apparently people are still trying to ban books (and sadly, still succeeding). So much so that the American Library Association actually celebrates "Banned Books Week" to celebrate the First Amendment and to fight back against the banning of books. In their research on 2011, they found a surprising addition to their list of the most frequently banned books: Suzanne Collins' 'The Hunger Games' trilogy.

‘Hunger Games’ Barbie Lets You Play With a Tiny Katniss

Lionsgate
Lionsgate

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?

Weekend Box Office Report: All Films Bow Before ‘The Hunger Games’

Hunger Games Still on Top
Lionsgate

For the third week in a row, the odds remained firmly in the favor of 'The Hunger Games,' which stayed number one at the box office and made crossing the coveted $300 million mark look as easy as snapping a child's neck in a man-made arena for an audience of millions. If watching the box office is to movie fans what performance stats are to sports fans, we can safely call 'The Hunger Games' a star athlete. With little blockbuster competition standing in its way until 'The Avengers' hits on May 4, $400 million is looking more and more likely.

Fox Schedules ‘X-Men: First Class’ Sequel to Avoid ‘Hunger Games’ Conflict

Jennifer Lawrence
20th Century Fox/Lionsgate

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.
