On Thursday, July 9th, Lionsgate stormed Hall H with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, the final chapter in the young adult sci-fi franchise. Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson were on hand for the panel, but we’ll get to that in another post.
Instead, we’d like to call your attention first to a new viral teaser featuring the crimson clad Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) and a very coordinated white army. In addition, we’ll recap the full theatrical trailer for the end to the two-part finale. And considering this trailer won’t be released for a couple months, big fans of the franchise will probably want to read our description of the trailer.

Every generation needs its preppy boy drama filled with up-and-coming faces. For the late ’80s and ’90s, it was Dead Poets Society. In the aughts, it was The Skulls. Now, in the twenty-teens, it might be The Riot Club.
Max Irons and Sam Claflin play the two newest members of Oxford University’s most exclusive fraternity. Though the upper-crust clique lives for debauchery, things take an ugly turn when one particular evening veers out of control. Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day) directed. Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, Holliday Grainger, and Jessica Brown Findlay also star. Watch The Riot Club trailer after the jump. Read More »
Note: This review was original published on November 10. We’ve bumped it up now that the film is in theaters.
It’s a shame The Hunger Games series gets filed into the “young adult” category. Sure, there’s some dystopian young romance in there, but with each subsequent film, the series proves it is about much more than unattainable love with sporadic action. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 takes the series to its furthest point from YA stereotypes yet.
However, what’s most interesting about this latest installment — the first part of a two-part finale — is just how different it is from the rest of the franchise. Is that a good thing? Below, read why The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 feels like a different franchise. Read More »

Natalie Dormer is one tough cookie, as evidenced by her steely turns in Game of Thrones, The Tudors, Elementary, and the upcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. Now she’s going to use that spirit to battle supernatural forces for David Goyer.
The British actress has just signed on for The Forest, a thriller set in Japan’s Aokigahara forest — nicknamed the “Suicide Forest” for the number of people who end their lives there. Spooky. Hit the jump for more on Natalie Dormer The Forest.

It’s impossible to predict the future, but only an idiot would bet against The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 making a crap ton of money this fall. The first two Hunger Games movies made enough money to turn star Jennifer Lawrence into the Guinness world record holder as the highest-grossing action heroine of all time, and the third looks on track to be just as big if not bigger.
Especially since Lionsgate is not holding back on the marketing. Hot on the heels of an epic new trailer, we have several high-res stills, featuring Katniss, Gale (Liam Hemsworth), and more. See the new Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 images after the jump.
