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…
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…
Thanks to over $333 million in box office sales, The Hunger Games Mockingjay – Part 1 has edged out Guardians of the Galaxy to become the highest grossing film of 2014. Katniss continues to reign supreme.
The cast of Mockingjay would like to take this slow news week to clear up some misconceptions about Ebola and remind everyone that the fight continues in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.
It's been a helluva year for Jennifer Lawrence. She won a Golden Globe for American Hustle, she was in two box office smashin' movies, and she's landed a Billboard chart hit with the
club banger solemn ballad "Hanging Tree." And she's the top grossing actress in Hollywood for 2014.
This probably comes as a shock to no one, but the latest Hunger Games movie made a lot of money this weekend.
I really don't know why Jennifer Lawrence is so shy about her singing voice—her vocals on "The Hanging Tree," the folk song Katniss' father taught her, are great and the song is super chilling. Mission accomplished if you ask me.
Hello! I'm your host, the internet, where the odds are never in your favor.
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). But it's short of Catching Fire's $25.3 million payday.
The more I see Natalie Dormer's Skrillex haircut, the more I fall in love with it.
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.
How much flame imagery can Lorde fit into her single for the upcoming Hunger Games: Mockingjay movie? An inferno's worth, it turns out. With "Yellow Flicker Beat," the 17-year-old songwriter/soundtrack curator — like her inspiration Katniss Everdeen — is a girl on fire.
Here are the latest posters to promote Mockingjay — Part 1. This time, it's the rebels of District 13 — including Natalie Dormer with badass head tattoo — stepping front and center.
Katniss is alive and well and coming to your movie screens this holiday season. But before you can see the movie, Lionsgate is going to tease you until you burst with beautiful promos featuring everyone from Alex Minsky as a worker from the lumber district (not in movie) to Julianne Moore as President Coin. Let the…
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. Check out Plutarch Heavensbee, portrayed by the…
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…
The marketing geniuses behind The Hunger Games movies have set up a website for Mockingjay. And the images on them are really, really, really nice. [UPDATE: I neglected to mention that the lede photo is of super hot marine amputee-turned-model Alex Minsky. So sorry.]
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,…
