It’s among the most anticipated of sequels and today Celebuzz has unveiled the first photos from the set of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”, featuring two fan-favorite characters getting to work. Josh Hutcherson has demonstrably gone back to blonde to play Peeta Mellark, and we also finally have our first glimpse of what British actor Sam Claflin will bring to the role of Finnick Odair. What can we glean from these photos? Well, not much, except that Claflin’s Finnick, like his ocean-loving book counterpart, may be spending much of hisRead More
After two months of rumor and speculation, British actor Sam Claflin has finally been officially confirmed for the role of Finnick Odair in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” Claflin joins returning stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, as well as new addition Jena Malone in the second installment of the massively popular teen dystopian franchise. Finnick was a hotly contested role, and everyone had an opinion (including us), but in the end it wasn’t up to the fans, but the filmmakers and particularly director Francis Lawrence. Claflin willRead More
It’s just about that time.

Now that the circus of deciding who will be directing “The Hunger Games” sequel “Catching Fire” is finally over (in case you haven’t heard: “Hunger Games” director Gary Ross is out, and “Water for Elephants” director Francis Lawrence landed the coveted job), we can move on to more fun speculation about who might play some of the fan-favorite characters that begin showing up in the sequel. We could begin nowhere else but with Finnick Odair, the 24 year old former Hunger Games victor from District 4 who becomes one ofRead More
We are just about three weeks away from the release of the highly anticipated Gary Ross teen bestseller adaptation “The Hunger Games” and today the first scene clip from the film has been unveiled. It features, what else, Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, forcibly impressing a room with her perfect archery skills. Taking place in the training center where all 24 children Tributes get a chance to practice their various survival skills before heading into the arena to fight each other to the death, Katniss is given an opportunity to impressRead More
A new trailer has arrived for “The Hunger Games”, the Gary Ross film based on the best-selling teen novels that’s increasingly being marketed as The Next Twilight. Just like in the first trailer, the focus is put squarely on the shoulders of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, the unwitting Games participant who sparks something bigger than anyone realizes when she volunteers to go into the arena to fight other kids to the death in the place of her sister. Thankfully, Lawrence seems more than up to the task in theRead More
It’s one of the most striking and talked-about scenes from “The Hunger Games” and today Entertainment Weekly has our first look at Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss garbed and ready to ignite to become the Girl on Fire (that’s Lenny Kravitz as costume designer Cinna’s hand holding that flame to her outfit) during the opening ceremony of the Games.

Some may be familiar to you already, some may be completely new. You may cheer at some inclusions, rage at who we left off (it was hard for us too, trustRead More
With a release date set for March 23rd 2012, promotional material for Gary Ross’s adaptation of “The Hunger Games” has been slowly trickling out, first with an awesome fiery motion poster and then just last month, the first character posters. The first teaser was underwhelming at best, but now, premiering today on Good Morning America, we have the first full length trailer. Starring Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, the film, based on the first novel of Suzanne Collins’ best-selling teen trilogy, is set in a post apocalyptic North AmericaRead More
What can we say other than, Holy Photoshop Batman! While “The Hunger Games” remains one of our most highly anticipated upcoming movies, the promotional materials released thus far can justly be described as awful (with the exception of that awesome motion poster). But that first teaser? Underwhelming. And now these characters-in-profile posters that spotlight Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss, Liam Hemsworth’s Gale, Josh Hutcherson’s Peeta and five more strong supporting characters from the film, all airbrushed within an inch of their lives. Luckily for Lionsgate, the massive success of the Suzanne CollinsRead More
