The Hunger Games
Boy, when the folks at The CW set their minds on something.
Late last year we brought you the news that The CW had approved production on 'The Hunger Games'-esque summer reality competition series 'The Hunt,' while months before the network had developed a scripted pilot similarly derivative of the blockbuster film franchise. Now, even after 'The Selection' failed to meet CW standards the first time around, the network has given the green light to another pilot episode. Find out all about 'The Selection' inside!
With Jennifer Lawrence hosting, it was finally time for SNL to go after one of the biggest cultural phenomenons in the world: 'The Hunger Games.' The sketch finds Lawrence back in the shoes of Katniss Everdeen, fresh off her joint victory with Peeta and ready to take on the only thing more horrifying than the games themselves: the press conference that follows them.
We got our first official look at 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' in the form of a new Entertainment Weekly cover featuring Jennifer Lawrence and 'Hunger Games' newbie Sam Claflin in full Tribute attire. Plus, the first still showing the two getting up close and personal. However, even more new pics from the sequel to last year's box office hit have been released, and there's a lot more drama to be had.
'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is still a good 11 months away but it's never too early to get our first look at one of the biggest films of the year. As Jennifer Lawrence prepares to get her second Oscar nominations for 'Silver Linings Playbook,' we've got the first official photo of Lawrence returning as Katniss Everdeen in 'Catching Fire.' Check it out below!
This past weekend's 'SNL' with Martin Short hosting and music legend Paul McCartney, certainly proved at least memorable, between the solemn cold opening paying tribute to the victims of the recent Sandy Hook tragedy, and Samuel L. Jackson accidentally cursing not once, but twice amid the sketches. So how can the series top itself again when 'SNL' returns in 2013? By recruiting 'The Hunger Games' and 'X-Men: First Class' star Jennifer Lawrence, as its next host, of course! Will she pay tribute to the 'SNL' greats?
Forget the Oscars and the Golden Globes -- if you really want to know the movies that everyone loved this year, look no further than most popular Google searches.
You might want to start stocking up on canned goods and elaborate wigs, because the dystopian future of 'The Hunger Games' might be here sooner than we thought. We've just learned that The CW has greenlit a new reality survival series entitled 'The Hunt,' whose premise should seem awfully familiar to fans of the worldwide novel phenomenon. Will the odds be ever in its favor? Find out who will face 'The Hunt' inside!
