Having successfully rescued Peeta and the other Hunger Games victors, Katniss Everdeen is feeling the strain of being the Mockingjay for the rebel group of District 13. The propaganda is exhausting, and she is starting to become uncertain about who are the heroes and who are the villains. While victory over the Capitol looks in the rebels' favour, Katniss is becoming increasingly suspicious of President Coin - a suspicion which becomes all the more intense when she confronts the captured Panem leader President Snow. He seems intent on killing her, but he's not the only one. When the rebels' methods are shown to be just as hostile as the Capitol, Katniss has to decide which path the take and with the oncoming final Hunger Games, her decision is fated to change her life forever.

The 'Love Actually' and 'Shaun of the Dead' actor had concerns about how the big screen adaptation of the beloved sitcom will be received.
Veteran British actor Bill Nighy is set to star in next year’s movie adaptation of legendary comedy ‘Dad’s Army’, but he’s apparently worried that fans of the original series will hate the resulting film.
Nighy was interviewed by British newspaper The Times and revealed that he had been plagued with worries during the filming of his part, which began in Yorkshire in October last year. He plays the part of Sergeant Arthur Wilson, the role originally occupied by John Le Mesurier, alongside Toby Jones’s portrayal of Captain Mainwaring.

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper shot 'Serena' before 'Silver Linings Playbook' - so what took so long?
Filmed in the Czech Republic more than two years ago, the American Depression-era drama 'Serena' took a long time to get to the big screen, during which time its stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence were nominated for Oscars in two other films together: 'Silver Linings Playbook' (for which Lawrence won Best Actress) and American Hustle.
Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper re-unite on screen with 'Serena'
Directed by Oscar-winning Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier ('In a Better World'), the film is a sweeping romance set in the wilds of Carolina's Smoky Mountains, based on the novel by Ron Rash. It's a complicated story with plenty of subtle textures that are ideally suited to Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as fine supporting players like Toby Jones, Rhys Ifans and Sean Harris. But the film's postponed release has sparked some bad buzz, as people wondered about the delay, which usually indicates some significant tinkering by the studios. And that's rarely a good thing.

The London Film Festival closes with the Fury premiere, while Daniel Radcliffe's Horns also premiered in Leicester Square. Set pictures from Lady in the Van and Dad's Army, as well as new trailers for What We Do in the Shadows, The Hunger Games 3 and Avengers 2...
The London Film Festival wrapped up this week with Brad Pitt leading a charge through Leicester Square for the red carpet premiere of his World War II tank thriller Fury, accompanied by his crewmates Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal, plus writer-director David Ayer. See the full set of photos here.
Also in London, Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple hit the red carpet for the premiere of their new horror-comedy thriller Horns, which opens in both America and Britain next week. See the pictures of Daniel & Juno here.
Gorgeously shot, this period drama has a terrific setting and vivid characters, but is edited together in a jarring way that distances the audience from the situations. As the story progresses, the film also shifts strangely from a riveting exploration of a power couple with a pioneering spirit to a more melodramatic thriller about corruption and murder. It's consistently engaging thanks to the power of the cast, but it should have also been darkly moving as well.
The story is set in the late 1920s, as lumber baron George (Bradley Cooper) struggles under the economic pressures of the impending Great Depression. Then he meets Serena (Jennifer Lawrence) and it's love at first sight. A feisty, outspoken woman with a background in logging, she immediately ruffles feathers in George's camp by giving out advice that's actually helpful. George's two righthand men, accountant Buchanan (David Dencik) and foreman Campbell (Sean Harris), both quietly wonder if this woman is going to mess up their all-male world of underhanded bribes and physical danger. But she develops a rapport with George's hunting tracker Galloway (Rhys Ifans). Meanwhile, the local sheriff (Toby Jones) is trying to get George's land declared protected national parkland.
Oscar-winning Danish director Susanne Bier (In a Better World) gives the film a grand scale with expansive mountain landscapes and a sweeping romantic tone. The Western-style bustle of the logging camp is lively and authentic, as is the continual threat of death or dismemberment on the job. Against this, Cooper and Lawrence have terrific chemistry both with each other and the characters around them, sharply portrayed by strong actors who know how to invest plenty of attitude into even a small role.
