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). But it's short of Catching Fire's $25.3 million payday. »11/21/14 2:40pm11/21/14 2:40pm

Lorde's 'Yellow Flicker Beat' Gets the Kanye West Treatment

Lorde's Hunger Games song "Yellow Flicker Beat" has gotten a touch of Kanye West, who has "reworked" it and turned it into a slower, moodier jam called "Flicker." What's a rework? Like a remix, I guess, but chiller and without Kanye actually speaking or rapping or singing. As one YouTube commenter wrote, "The title… »11/11/14 5:00pm11/11/14 5:00pm

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

These New Mockingjay Promos Paint a Stunning Picture of District 13

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.

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

Katniss Is the First Woman in 40 Years to Win the Annual Box Office

Catching Fire, the second installment of The Hunger Games saga is not actually an experimental art house film about a family arguing over a pizza order as they play an epic game of Monopoly, crossed the $400-million mark at the domestic box office this week. With a domestic haul of $409.4 million, the Jennifer… »1/12/14 12:00pm1/12/14 12:00pm

The Only Hunger Games GIF You'll Ever Need, Starring Katniss and Rue

This most amazing GIF ever was created from the DVD extras on the original The Hunger Games. I want to watch an entire movie of Katniss and Rue just being ridiculously adorable — frolicking in the woods, eating (non-poisonous!!!) berries, braiding each other's hair, attending impromptu therapy sessions, and whatever… »12/08/13 9:07pm12/08/13 9:07pm
