It's the End of The Hunger Games, and Katniss Is Very Much Alone

I saw Mockingjay-Part 2 aka The Hunger Games Part 4 aka the one where Katniss almost died a few more times and not much else happened in “IMAX,” in what is apparently the biggest theater in New York City. “This is my favorite place in the city,” my effortlessly cool viewing companion told me as we settled in. “I come… »11/18/15 1:50pm11/18/15 1:50pm


Mockingjay: Part 2 Looks Low On Dialogue, High On Explosions—Watch the Trailer

If you thought that the last film in the Hunger Games franchise was a little more claustrophobic than the previous two (it took place primarily in an underground bunker), the trailer for the fourth and final film in the franchise will be a breath of fresh air tinged with gunpowder. That’s because, if the trailer is… »10/28/15 12:00pm10/28/15 12:00pm

Mockingjay – Part 1 hit theaters last night, and according to Variety, it's already raked in $17 million. That's the biggest Thursday night of the year, stomping Guardians of the Galaxy ($11.2 million) and Captain America: The Winter Solider ($10.2 million).

Watch the Video for Lorde's Mockingjay Single 'Yellow Flicker Beat'

The audio was out, but thank goodness, now we have video. In "Yellow Flicker Beat," Lorde does some of her patented hand dancing in several locations, like a shiny wallpapered motel room and an empty stage, before walking aggressively through a crowded party. She's just channeling her inner Katniss, of course. »11/06/14 9:30am11/06/14 9:30am

New ​Mockingjay Teaser Spotlights Phillip Seymour Hoffman

These weekend, Comic Con dropped many a teaser and trailer for upcoming films, including this spot for Mockingjay (Part 1). It's a gritty departure from the previous teaser and promo images, which has largely featured a white, sterilized, and dare I say chic aesthetic.

The Teaser Trailer for Mockingjay Part 1 Is Pure Panem Propaganda

Lionsgate has definitely decided to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 in interesting ways. So far, they've opted for ads and videos that are less about the movie and more stuff that could have been in the movie, like this newly released television spot of President Snow (Donald Sutherland) speaking to his… »6/25/14 1:20pm6/25/14 1:20pm

That Time the Hunger Games Smoke Monster Almost Ate J. Law

With the advent (and relentless ubiquity) of CGI, it's easy to imagine that contemporary actors in action movies are little more than children playing pretend on a giant soundstage, waving fake weapons at imaginary opponents and strolling safely off to their trailers until the next big scene. Actors still, however,… »12/28/13 2:00pm12/28/13 2:00pm
