Josh Hutcherson is trading the Hunger Games for video games. He’s just been set as the lead of Future Man, a half-hour comedy pilot for Hulu from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The story centers on an unassuming nobody whose one skill is playing a certain video game.

With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.
Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens.

The question is who can pull it off?

After an hour of Bill Murray being a rock star in Hall H at Comic-Con in San Diego, things took a different turn when the Lionsgate panel began featuring The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
Four timpani drums were rolled out on the Hall H stage, and as the players banged the drums, a stream of additional drummers entered the hall through the crowd, hitting their instruments with vigor, getting louder and louder until suddenly it was time for a message from District 13. You can watch that viral teaser right here, but now it’s time to dig into the final Comic-Con panel for The Hunger Games franchise. It was a sweet, funny, and fond farewell to the young adult sci-fi adaptation with some brief teases of what’s to come in the finale.
