Admit it, we’ve all imagined our life would make a pretty good movie at least once.
Are you one of those people who walks down the street with a soundtrack playing in your head? Maybe you even go as far as imagining some opening credits at the beginning of your day? Well if you're the type who thinks your life has that cinematic feel then perhaps you’d like your story to become an actual movie, directed by Oscar winner Ron Howard.
The award winning director has teamed up with Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson and Canon U.S.A. Inc. for Project Imagination: The Trailer, the ultimate movie lover’s contest, which will see one lucky winner have their life made into a short film.
'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' has topped the US Box Office over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, earning more than $56 million.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 has remained at the top of the US Box Office, for the second week in a row, over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend (27th-30th November).
Jennifer Lawrence in Mockingjay - Part 1.
Mockingjay Part 1 holds another starry premiere, while Cumberbatch turns out for two films in New York, and Unbroken premieres Down Under. Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy are spotted filming around England, and we get more detailed looks at Fifty Shades of Grey and Disney's live-action Cinderella...
After the world premiere in London last week, this week saw the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 walking the red carpet in Los Angeles just before the film arrived in cinemas. Cast members in attendance included Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Julianne Moore, Donald Sutherland, Sam Claflin, Jeffrey Wright, Natalie Dormer and Elden Henson.
This four-part franchise, based on the Suzanne Collins novels, turns very dark with this strikingly bold third film, which once again makes the most of perspective to recount a parable about normal people rising up against oppression. This may be a sci-fi apocalypse, but the story is packed with present-day resonance and messy characters who are sometimes unnervingly easy to identify with. So while things get very grim in this chapter, it's still a hugely engaging film, packed with real-life humour and emotion. And it makes Mockingjay Part 2 unmissable.
The story picks up not long after the chaos of the Quarter Quell, when Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) realised that she had been a pawn for a planned revolution that cast her as the iconic Mockingjay. Now in hiding, the rebels need her to assume the role publicly, but she has other concerns. So she makes a deal with rebel President Coin (Julianne Moore) and her sidekick Plutarch (Philip Seymour Hoffman) that she'll help them if they guarantee safety for the captured Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), who has apparently been brainwashed so he can be used for propaganda purposes by the Capitol's President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Working with her old hunting buddy Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Katniss takes on the Mockingjay role, locking horns with Snow as the rebellion grows in strength.
Once again, director Francis Lawrence vividly tells the story from Katniss' imperfect point of view. This is a teen consumed with anger and confusion, and she can't figure out why she's so inspiring to everyone who looks at her. But she's beginning to understand her impact and how she can use it to help the people she loves. This makes her heroism remarkably human, rather than the usual noble movie self-sacrifice. And Jennifer Lawrence brings so much depth to Katniss that the character transcends even the most jarring plot points. Her internal journey also makes this much more than yet another dystopian teen adventure.

The 22 year-old star recently admitted he is "curious" to find out the taste of human flesh.
Josh Hutcherson comes across as a harmless and charming young actor, but the 22 year-old recently made a bizarre revelation about cannibalism, admitting that one day he would like to eat human flesh.
Hutcherson is intrigued by the taste of human flesh
Hutcherson, who next stars in the highly anticipated 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1,' confessed to British GQ that if eating people wasn't "taboo," he would be eager to find out how human meat tastes.

Katniss Everdeen has survived the latest political disaster of Panem following the shocking 75th Hunger Games. Her home, District 12, has been destroyed with her sister Prim and neighbour Gale having only narrowly escaped, and her partner Peeta Mellark has been captured and brainwashed by the formidable President Snow. She has been taken to the underground rebellion that has become of the long thought destroyed District 13, alongside her newest Games partners Finnick and Beetee, and her mentor Haymitch. All the rebels of District 13 are relying on Katniss to lead their revolution against Panem's government, but in doing so she risks the lives of so many. Her symbol of hope, the Mockingjay, has been banned from all districts but she refuses to let the meaning disappear from the heart's of her peers as she sets out to fight against Snow once and for all.
Following Katniss Everdeen's escape from the catastrophic 75th Hunger Games with mentor Haymitch and two of her Games partners Finnick and Beetee, she is reunited with her sister Prim and neighbour Gale after learning that her home of District 12 has been destroyed. Now she's based in the secret underground remains of the forgotten District 13 where she and the Panem rebels are planning to bring freedom to the nation. Peeta Mellark and the other Hunger Games survivors are being kept and brainwashed by President Snow, who is attempting to quell the disturbance of Panem with a series of propaganda television broadcasts, but when Beetee interrupts one broadcast with a pirate transmission, he thrusts a serious threat upon Snow's government with one simple phrase: 'The Mockingjay lives'.
Jennifer Lawrence channelled Panem’s District 1 whilst appearing at the Cannes film festival. The 23-year-old actress appeared alongside her ‘Hunger Games’ co-stars wearing an unusual Dior skirt and top.
Jennifer Lawrence was joined by her fellow Hunger Games cast whilst in Cannes on Saturday 17th May. The actress, best known for playing Katniss Everdeen, has turned heads over the last year with her daring yet brilliantly executed red carpet looks.
Jennifer Lawrence's matching skirt and top certainly turned heads at the Cannes' photocall.
The 23-year-old looked lovely with her short hair curled and resting just below her ear. She wore an unusual outfit which included a white skirt complete with frilled mesh and a crop top which a pattern which would not have looked out of place in the Panem’s District 1. The Dior top was emblazoned with a motif, designed to look like a window in which a sea-side landscape could be clearly seen. The back of her unusual top was split and looked as if she were wearing a pair of wings. She completed the two piece ensemble with silver earrings and matching pointed silver heeled shoes.
Catching Fire is a clear winner for this weekend's box office, but what about beyond that?
We all knew The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was going to take over the box office, but it might be an even bigger one than expected. Catching Fire is an appropriate title, given how fast the buzz has spread, giving the movie a head start of $25.25 million in the US, according to Deadline.

These are just the earnings from early screenings on Thursday as well. At its current pace, the Catching Fire mania is set to beat the previous record holder for December, The Twilight Saga: New Moon. The 2009 film was also a young adult wonder, one of the first to kick start the current Hollywood trend.
Fans finally get to see The Hunger Games sequel, as the casts of Black Nativity, Dallas Buyers Club and Her walk red carpets. Also, new trailers bow for Bieber's Believe, Frost's Cuban Fury and Crowe's Noah...
This week is pretty much all about The Hunger Games as Catching Fire arrives in cinemas around the world. After last week's world premiere in London, the cast headed back to America for back-to-back premieres in Los Angeles and New York. Meanwhile, a range of clips and short online features have whipped up fan frenzy to potentially record-breaking box office potential. Take a look over all the best bits of the American premiere's here or our The Hunger Games: Catching Fire critics round up here or just read our own review here.
Slightly less flashy was the New York premiere of the Christmas drama Black Nativity, attended by stars Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson and Forest Whitaker, all caught by paparazzi on the red carpet looking very glamorous. The film opens in time for the holidays. Check out our videos from the event Jacob Latimore and Angela Bassett arrive, Jennifer Hudson shows off her stunning pixie crop and Forest Whitaker takes his family to 'Black Nativity' NY Premiere.
'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire', due to be released in the US today (22nd November), has received glowing reviews from critics.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was released in the UK yesterday (21st November) and in the USA today (22nd November). Critics have responded positively to the film which continues the tale of Katniss Everdeen and the dystopia of Panem.

Catching Fire continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, the winner of the Hunger Games, after she returns home to district 12. As a winner of the games she leads a relatively comfortable life. However, after witnessing horrific cruelty during the Hunger Games, she begins to notice further cracks the Panem system. Everdeen is forced back into the arena in order to compete again alongside her fellow competitor Peeta.
Continue reading: Review Round-Up: Jennifer Lawrence Shines In 'Catching Fire'
After 2012's The Hunger Games caught us off-guard with its subtle themes, this sequel more than lives up to the hype, dramatically expanding the scale of the action while letting the actors deepen their characters. It's a full-on action epic that cleverly retains author Suzanne Collins' narrative trick of telling the story through a flawed perspective. And it provides the needed push to give the whole saga real momentum.
We join our heroes not long after the last film ended: Katniss and Peeta (Lawrence and Hutcherson) are in trouble for challenging the authority of President Snow (Sutherland) and sowing the seeds of rebellion in the districts. Now they have to travel around the nation with their team - drunken mentor Haymitch (Harrelson), preening manager Effie (Banks), quietly subversive designer Cinna (Kravitz) - soothing ruffled feathers. But of course they only make things worse. So new Gamesmaker Plutarch (Hoffman) plots a way to force them back into the games with all of the past victors, so they can be wiped out for good. And Katniss is so busy worrying about protecting Peeta that she fails to remember who the true enemy is.
Screenwriters Beaufoy and deBruyn (aka Oscar-winner Michael Arndt) inventively maintain Katniss' narrow, inaccurate point-of-view right through the film, which keeps the audience wrong-footed all the way to the end. It's an exhilarating trick that makes the tour of the districts painfully dull and the return to the games utterly horrifying. It also gives Lawrence the chance to flex her own Oscar-winning chops, further tormenting us with her inability to choose between two good men: Peeta and Gale (Hemsworth), her pal back home. She certainly doesn't trust newcomers like the mouthy Johanna (Malone) or the too-hunky Finnick (Claflin).

How 'The Hunger Games' could have been in an alternative reality.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is beginning to open in cinemas worldwide after months of fevered anticipation. As we gear up to watch Katniss Everdeen and the people of Panem launch an uprising against the tyrannical powers of The Capitol, let's take a trip to an alternate dimension and see which other actors could have led the movie, had Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth not snagged the roles.
It's Hard To Imagine 'The Hunger Games' Starring Anyone Else.
We know it's hard to imagine anyone else in the three main Hunger Games roles but indulge us if you will whilst we present a glimpse into an alternative cast comprised of actors who reportedly auditioned for the roles.

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' premiere pulled in the biggest stars in Hollywood, including Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.

The cast are hard at work promoting the second movie in the huge grossing franchise and all the indications suggest Catching Fire will eclipse the original and pull in millions more than most movies released this year.
The Cookie Monster stars in a spoof that aims to teach kids about patterns
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will arrive in cinemas this month amidst a flurry of excitement and anticipation from the film's already ardent following. Any event as big as a new Hunger Games movie is prone to receive its fair share of spoofing, and with 'The Hungry Games: Catching Fur,' the Sesame Street gang may have already come up with the best spoof of the all.

The stars came out in Italy but fans can expect no new Katniss adventures.
As The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premieres across the world, the sequel to the 2012 adaptation of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games looks set to outperform its predecessor at the box office.
With a massive budget and a returning cast of superstars, the movie delves once more into Collins' teen fiction post-apocalyptic universe to reunite with Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Haymitch and the others as the Districts of Panem rise up in rebellion after the 74th Hunger Games victory.
Another solid film in The Hunger Games franchise, two to go.
There was a time when the only films that got good reviews were arty French ones and Toy Story. Nowadays, everything’s got the critics dancing with joy. That’s not really true, but Hunger Games: Catching Fire has 90% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Katniss has some big decisions to make in the upcoming Hunger Games film
Thing is, it’s pretty easy to write the Hunger Games off as a movie for 19-year-olds who work in supermarkets and read the books on their breaks – over and over again. Too easy, really. As it happens, the critics didn’t subscribe to the same level of snobbery you just read.

Her co-stars scrubbed up for the London premiere pretty well too
The Odeon Cinema in London's Leicester Square was host to the world premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on Monday night (Nov 11), and the stars and guests were on hand to make a big impression as they graced the red carpet. Dressed to the nines, the place awash with beautiful people as they paraded their wares, and no one parades better than Jennifer Lawrence.
J-Law wowed the crowd with her backless number
Dressed in a backless white Dior gown, Lawrence looked impeccable as she oozed style whilst greeting fans and signing autographs down the red carpet. The actress thanked fans for showing up in their droves despite the torrid weather conditions, reportedly saying (via Variety) at one point: “I’ve been out here five minutes and I’m complaining!”
The second instalment of the movie franchise will arrive in cinemas worldwide on 22 November.
The Hunger Games will be back in less than one month, when The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is release worldwide in cinemas and IMAX. The big event will roll up on 22 November (that's only 23 days away!!!) and will pick up where the massively successful first film left off one year ago.
Our heroes discover unrest on their 'Victory Tour'
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth are all back, joined by Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Sam Claflin, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, Woody Harrelson, Philip Seymour Hoffman and a ton of other returnees and newcomers alike. With the release of the film ever nearer, the new trailer can hold our insatiable apetites for only a little longer, as Panem and its fictitious inhabitants seem to grow ever nearer.
The sequel to the incredibly popular 'The Hunger Games' will arrive in cinemas in November, and you could win tickets to the premiere!
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be the second movie version of the popular 'Hunger Games' book series from author Suzanne Collins and following the massive succes of the first movie and the huge fan-base it has developed, the second movie is already drawing heaps of anticipation ahead of it's release. An online campaign is being run that will give some lucky people the chance to attend the premiere of the movie in Los Angeles via the movie's official Facebook page.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Is Coming...
#TickTock11 - referring to the date of the premiere; 11 November - is the name of this campaign that will send 75 different people to LA to watch the movie 11 days before anyone else, and if that wasn't good enough how about the prospect of seeing the film along with Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and the rest of the cast. Why 75? Because the next film revolves around Katniss and Peeta as they compete in the 75th annual Hunger Games.
