The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 Trailer


With the incredible ramifications of the end of the yearly ritualistic sacrificial televised Hunger Games, the world is thrown into disarray when the supposed saviour of the underprivileged working class travels to District 13 to help with the revolution she inadvertently started. Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is the last hope and symbol of resistance against the capitol that seeks to keep her and her people as poverty-stricken slaves, and after surviving the aforementioned Hunger Games twice,  Katniss must learn that 'it is the things we love most that destroy us.' Now, with an army at her back, Katniss must change the course of history and bring freedom to the masses through a global armed revolution.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review


Extraordinary

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).

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.

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.

'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Scores Big With The Critics. No, Really


Jennifer Lawrence Josh Hutcherson

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.

Hunger Games Catching Fire Jennifer LawrenceKatniss 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.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Trailer


After becoming the first duo to win the annual Hunger Games following its 74th year, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark have spread hope among the people of Panem who now feel the possibility of a revolution. However, the Capitol realise how dangerous this could be for their ordered, totalitarian society and force them to compete once again, alongside 22 other previous winners in the The Quarter Quell - an event that happens every 25th years and allows the Capitol to invent a new twist for the year's Games. Tensions arise between Katniss and Peeta who both want the other to be the victor in the 75th Hunger Games and do everything within their power to protect each other.

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is the highly anticipated sequel to 2012's 'The Hunger Games'; the film adaptation to Suzanne Collins' sci-fi novel trilogy. Taking over from Gary Ross as director is Francis Lawrence ('I Am Legend', 'Constantine', 'Water for Elephants') with screenwriting from Simon Beaufoy ('The Full Monty', 'Slumdog Millionaire', '127 Hours') and Michael Arndt ('Oblivion', 'Toy Story 3', 'Little Miss Sunshine'), though we'll still see the same star cast reprising their roles. It is due to be released in cinemas everywhere on November 21st 2013.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire press conference was perhaps the biggest event to hit Comic-Con over the weekend, with Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz and Jena Malone turning out to present a brand new trailer for more than 6,000 fans.

Lawrence, who scooped the Oscar for Best Actress in February, is fast becoming one of Hollywood's most amiable stars. Her youth and slouchy attitude to fame allows her to connect perfectly with the franchise's audience and she brought her A-game to California. 

When discussing training for the stunts she performs in the movie, Lawrence quipped that "the hardest stunt is probably still just basic running," to laughter in the hall.

When it comes to ongoing movie franchise, it really doesn't get much bigger than The Hunger Games, so when we managed to get hold of the film's star Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson you can bet that we were all ears. In their frank, individual discussions, the two praised the level of commitment the franchise's fans constantly show them and how arriving at the San Diego Comic Con International really puts into perspective the huge scope the films cover.

Lawrence praises The Hunger Games' "hardcore" fans during the red carpet interview about her the next film in the series; The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. She particularly acknowledged the dedication the fans hold towards the film - a type of dedication that is rarely matched across fandoms associated to other movie/book franchises. She seemed genuinely humbled with the reception the films continue to receive and was keen to acknowledge that without these fans, the films wouldn't be a success.

Lawrence impressed fans with her anecdotes of clumsiness and her gentle humour. She commented on the difficulties she faced whilst filming physical scenes, stating "running and trying not to hit myself in the face with my bow, those were my two greatest challenges." She also referenced one scene in which she wears -in a propaganda photograph shoot- a vast wedding dress: five feet in diameter. Of the costume she said it "was one of the hardest things I've done in my life".

Jamie Oliver Finishes Reading His First Book - But What Was It?


Jamie Oliver Jennifer Lawrence Josh Hutcherson Liam Hemsworth

British chef Jamie Oliver has announced he's finished his first book: Suzanne Collins' Catching Fire. The chef, who has written over twenty cookery books, has never previously completed an entire book before. He said in an interview his dyslexia has always prevented him from finishing a book.

Oliver has not gone down the traditional route of reading the trilogy of books in order. That would be far too conventional but has instead started with the second of the three. We'd like to presume the cook had listened to the first novel or at least seen the film to get the general gist.

Epic Review


Good

Although this adventure's premise will appeal to children, and the child within us, the film itself is far too simplistic to be a classic. But at least the animation looks terrific, with swooping action and an inventive use of nature imagery. The result is relatively engaging, consistently entertaining and never remotely suspenseful.

The story begins as teen Mary Katherine, better known as MK (voiced by Seyfried), returns home to live with her mad-inventor dad (Sudeikis) after her mother dies. Dad's house is on the edge of the forest, where he is obsessed with discovering a miniature world of beings who keep the natural world running. But his focus on work has alienated everyone in his life, and MK is still struggling to break through to him. Then she has a freak encounter with the tiny Queen Tara (Knowles), who shrinks her to two inches tall. Suddenly she's working with the Queen's chief leafman Ronin (Farrell), a rogue soldier Nod (Hutcherson), and a goofy slug and snail duo (Ansari and O'Dowd) to save the forest from the evil Mandrake (Waltz).

The script eliminates all complexity in its depiction of good and evil. Mandrake is bent on destroying the forest for no real reason, trying to bring his creeping grey decay to what is otherwise an idyllic, magical world drenched in colourful flowers, verdant ferns and trickling brooks. In other words, it's so obvious who is going to win this battle that we never for a moment worry about our rag-tag group of heroes, no matter what violence they face. So we sit back and enjoy the animators' work. While the humans look like plastic dolls, the bugs, birds, plants and critters are simply astounding, and some of the action scenes are genuinely exhilarating.

Katniss Is Enemy No.1 In Hunger Games: Catching FireKatniss Is Enemy No.1 In Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The first full trailer for the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire has been released, debuting at the MTV Movie awards on Sunday (April 14, 2013). Recent Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence once again takes center stage as Katniss Everdeen, the winner of the brutal fight to the death who appears to have become a sign of hope for the rest of society.

The shadowy Capitol is less than pleased with the fanfare surrounding Katniss' return from the Hunger Games arena and want her removed. "She has become a beacon of hope for them, she has to be eliminated," says Donald Sutherland's President Snow, before Philip Seymour Hoffman's Plutarch Heavensbee adds, "I agree she should die, but in the right way, at the right time. Katniss Everdeen is a symbol, just her image. Show them she is one of us now, let them rally behind that."

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Teaser Trailer


Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark have become symbols of hope to the people of the dystopic Panem after becoming the first pair to win the 74th Annual Hunger Games in a brutal battle to the death between two teenagers of each of the 12 famished districts. Now is the time they must leave their families to tackle a 'Victor's Tour' of each district. However, the President sees her as a threat to their capitalist society and vows to have her killed, but first to make the people of every district turn against her. Rebellion appears to be arising among the people and Katniss just wants to get through the tour safely. But with the 75th Games approaching, known as The Quarter Quell, the Capitol decide to introduce the biggest twist the Games have ever seen; a twist that will completely transform their nation.

The second instalment to this sci-fi dystopia trilogy is soon to arrive with direction being taken over by Francis Lawrence ('I Am Legend', 'Constantine', 'Water for Elephants'). This time, Oscar winning screenwriters Simon Beaufoy ('The Full Monty', 'Slumdog Millionaire', '127 Hours') and Michael Arndt ('Oblivion', 'Toy Story 3', 'Little Miss Sunshine') have adapted the novel series by Suzanne Collins and we will see a return of 'The Hunger Games' star cast. 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is set to hit screens on November 22nd 2013.

Surf's Up! Jennifer Lawrence Seen Filming For The Hunger Games 2


Jennifer Lawrence Josh Hutcherson Liam Hemsworth

The Aloha state may be traditionally known for its warm climes, but The Hunger Games 2 shooting there looked decidedly chilly, with Jennifer Lawrence in particular looking less than comfortable as she surfed in the Hawaiian seas as the cameras rolled.

Filming for the sequel to the hugely successful Hunger Games - $686.5 million taken worldwide – took place on Monday, with the film being given the title The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. However, 22 year-old Lawrence looked like she’d relish the chance of, if not a slight burning, then certainly something to warm her up as she shivered in a wetsuit, paired with knee pads and some black Adidas high-top sneakers. One particular shot, caught by the Daily Mail, saw her have to dive off a jetty into the sea. Alongside her on set was the 20 year-old actor Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark in the film. Joining the pair was fellow star Liam Hemsworth, who was also snapped braving the waters.

There wasn’t too much combat stuff going on, though there were a couple of images of Lawrence holding a crossbow, and we’re pretty sure her character was planning on using it to do more than clean someone’s ears out. The film is expected to come out in 2013.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire Poster Unveiled


Jennifer Lawrence Josh Hutcherson Liam Hemsworth Philip Seymour Hoffman

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire may not be getting released in cinemas for at least another year, but that doesn't mean that fans of the franchise aren't eagerly awaiting every forward motion the films take, as the reaction to the unveiling of the poster for the next film in the series has shown.

The artwork for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire gives very little away, with only a flaming version of the Mockingjay pin that appears so frequently throughout the series being on display. Still, that hasn't stopped people from trying to decipher whether it may give anything that will reveal what we can expect from the new film. Of course, for the people who have read the book, there will be no need to do this as they should have a pretty good idea of what is going to happen.

The sequel to the hugely successful Hunger Games once again stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, alongside Hollywood stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. New cast members include the Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee and Jena Malone as Johanna Mason. It hits cinemas worldwide on November 22, 2012.

Mary Katherine is a regular teenage girl who somehow mysteriously appears in an enchantingly beautiful forest full of talking slugs and miniature soldiers. In this strange new world, a war is waging between the forces of good and those who do everything within their power to try to defend nature, and the forces of evil; those who are responsible for its destruction. Wishing she'd dreamt it all at first, Mary eventually joins a team of weird but friendly characters to help protect this world as well as her own which is also, consequentially, under threat.

Jed Eckert is a marines soldier visiting his police officer father and football playing younger brother Matt. All seems well in their normal American town before the blackout. There is a sudden mass powercut across a large chunk of the country and before long, a squadron of aircrafts fill the sky with hundreds of North Korean soldiers parachuting from them. It's an invasion rendering the country powerless and under the threat of a powerful weapon that the Korean government has somehow obtained. Jed and Matt's father order them to hide out in a small cabin that they own in the wilderness; they do so and gather a group of likeminded teenagers along the way. Their father gets captured by the military forces while they hide and he uses a megaphone to bravely tell his sons to kill the soldiers holding him prisoner and he is subsequently shot and killed. The teenagers later find the cabin has been torched and Jed vows to fight back. The others join him and call themselves the Wolverines after their high school mascot. They make plans, along with experienced American soldiers, to steal back the weapon and win back their homeland.

7 Days In Havana Review


Good
There's plenty of colour and culture in this anthology, which could have been titled La Habana Te Amo, to match the similarly uneven Paris Je T'Aime and New York I Love You. It has moments of artistic inventiveness, but barely breaks the surface.

On Monday, an American (Hutcherson) moves to Havana to start film school, connecting with a friend (Cruz) who takes him for a night on the town. Tuesday, filmmaker Kusturica arrives to accept an award, then escapes to a jazz club with his driver (Abreu). Wednesday, a Spaniard (Bruhl) tries to recruit a Cuban singer (Estevez) to work in Europe, but her baseball-player boyfriend (Benitez) has other plans. Thursday, a Palestinian (Suleiman) struggles to make sense of the local culture. Friday, a teen (Herrera) is put through a ritual to cure her lesbian tendencies. Saturday, a woman (Ibarra) tries to hold her family together by working two high-pressure jobs. And Sunday, a woman (Amore) obeys the Virgin and gets her family to install a pond in her sitting room.

The Hunger Games Review


Excellent
Proclaimed "the next big franchise" before production even began, this first chapter of Suzanne Collins' trilogy manages to live up to the hype. It's rare to see a blockbuster with such a sharp political sensibility. And the actors are terrific in complex roles.

In what was once North America, the ruling class demands an annual sacrifice of the 12 districts that once rebelled: each must select two teens, a boy and a girl, to battle in a wooded arena to the death, with the last one standing crowned victor. In the poor mining District 12, the tributes are ace archer Katniss (Lawrence) and muscly baker Peeta (Hutcherson), who forge an awkward friendship as they're thrust into the televised competition. Trained by Haymitch (Harrelson), promoted by Effie (Banks), groomed by Cinna (Kravitz), interviewed by Caesar (Tucci) - it's simply overwhelming.

Video - Jennifer Lawrence Towers Over Co-Star Josh Hutcherson At Hunger Games Signing


Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson arrive at the Barnes and Noble bookstore in New York for The Hunger Games signing. Jennifer arrives first and appears to knock something from a shelf; she laughs but continues walking. Josh arrives and as he stands for photos, Jennifer sits down at the table behind him. They sign posters; magazines and copies of the book by Suzanne Collins, which inspired the movie.

Jennifer and Josh play Katniss and Peeta, the two teenagers who are chosen to fight to the death, along with twenty two others, on live television. The Hunger Games is set in a post-apocalyptic America, which has now been split into twelve districts and has been renamed Panem

Video - Josh Hutcherson Signs Autographs At Loud Hunger Games Premiere


Josh Hutcherson signs autographs at The Hunger Games premiere in Toronto. As he signs, fans scream and yell as Josh's minders urge people to take a step back.

Josh is playing the role of Peeta Mellark, who is chosen to participate in the live reality show The Hunger Games, along with Katniss Everdeen, who is played by Jennifer Lawrence. The film is about the reality show, where twenty four teenagers fight to the death. The film is set in a post-apocalyptic America, now known as Panem, which is split into twelve districts

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island Review


Good
With just one character from the 2008 adventure, this film does a decent job continuing the story while playing loosely with another Jules Verne's story.

It's an enjoyably ridiculous romp with far-fetched action for the kids and a few deranged gags for the grown-ups.

Now 17, Sean (Hutcherson) has intercepted a broadcast from his Vernian adventurer grandfather (Caine). He begrudgingly lets his stepdad Hank (Johnson) help decode the message, which says that Verne's Mysterious Island really exists, and that it's the same island from Stevenson's Treasure Island and Swift's Gulliver's Travels. Sean is determined to see it, so Hank accompanies him to Palau, where they rent a helicopter piloted by the goofy Gabato (Guzman) and his hot daughter Kailani (Hudgens). But after they find the amazing island, they discover that it's about to sink.

One wonders if the makers of Bridge to Terabithia actually have something against all the people who loved reading Katherine Paterson's award-winning book as children. The original story, which deals with loneliness, isolation, and the importance of friendship, is now -- thanks to a cloying screenplay by Jeff Stockwell and the book's author's son David Paterson -- little more than an anodyne valentine to the power of the imagination or some such cliché popular among vulgarizers of young adult literature. You could ask, why can't they just leave well enough alone? The answer, unfortunately, is they never do.

A great many problems with Bridge to Terabithia could have been solved by casting, and unfortunately director Gabor Csupo gets that wrong from the start. The protagonist, Jesse Aarons, a lonely fifth grader in a small town, is played with sullen inattention by Josh Hutcherson. His better half is Leslie Burke, the new girl in town, performed by AnnaSophia Robb with a bright and shallow perkiness that suggests a callow Keira Knightley 10 years ago. With not much going in the way of interpersonal chemistry between the two leads, it's difficult for the film's rather (on the surface) uneventful and deeply interior story to gain much traction.
