Don’t worry fans, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is in fact coming to San Diego Comic-Con. It’s just also coming to a mobile device near you, and your local Best Buy, all at the same time.
While the film won’t be presented in Hall H (probably because the cast has been filming for six months straight) it will have a presence both on the show floor and outside. The highlight is the first full trailer for the film, which opens November 21, will premiere Friday July 25 at the Samsung Experience outside the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego. If you aren’t at the event though, you can head to select Best Buys on July 26 to see the trailer and enter for a chance to get free tickets. It’ll probably end up online too.

This was supposed to be the year, the San Diego Comic-Con that blew away all others. A quick look at the movie release schedule shows an epic spread of massive films that will be released in the next year, before the 2015 incarnation of the Con. That list includes Avengers: Age of Ultron, Interstellar, Jurassic World, The Fantastic Four, Terminator, Mad Max: Fury Road, Fast and Furious 7, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Tomorrowland, Big Hero 6, Pitch Perfect 2 and Dumb and Dumber To. Not to mention the two big films now in production that were rumored to come out before next year’s event, then moved: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Star Wars Episode VII.
The full schedule is now out and – barring any surprises or additions – only two of the above films are confirmed to appear: Avengers: Age of Ultron and Mad Max. Others (like Fantastic Four, Interstellar, Terminator, Jurassic World) could still appear because their studios have panels, but are unconfirmed. Most surprisingly though, is that studios which have regularly been at the event, such as Disney, Universal and Lionsgate, don’t even have panels. Comic Con 2014 went from one with the highest expectations to the opposite.
Below we’ll break down which of these massive films are confirmed, and which aren’t confirmed, could appear, won’t appear, and why it’s all happening this way. Read More »

In the second teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the rebels fight back with a message of their own. Watch it after the jump.

The Lionsgate marketing team continues to knock it out of the park with the first The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 teaser. Rather than dishing out the usual 20-second melange of explosions and one-liners, they’ve delivered a beautifully creepy piece of Capitol propaganda, read by President Snow (Donald Sutherland) himself.
At first, the video seems innocuous enough, with Snow extolling the virtues of peace and unity and whatnot. Then the camera pulls back to reveal his new friend, and… well, see for yourself. Hit the jump for the full The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 teaser.

There’s a motion poster, some images, and more on a special website dedicated to the highly anticipated sequel directed by Francis Lawrence.

On Monday morning, we reported Philip Seymour Hoffman had shot enough of his The Hunger Games: Mockingjay role before his passing that the release dates for the two-parter have not shifted. But he still had seven days of filming left on Part 2 and, unsurprisingly, that’s leading to some complications.
According to insiders at the studio, the late Hoffman still had one major scene left to shoot when he died. The filmmakers are now scrambling to work around his absence, possibly by digitally inserting him into some scenes. More details after the jump.

When Philip Seymour Hoffman tragically and suddenly passed away this weekend, he left behind a couple of not-quite-finished projects. One is the two-parter The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, in which he reprises the role of Plutarch Heavensbee from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire; another is Showtime’s Happyish, which was set to star Hoffman as an ad exec trying to change his life.
While the former shouldn’t be delayed too much by his passing, the latter seems to be in jeopardy. Get updates on both after the jump.
