Is 'Britain's Hardest Grafter' just 'The Hunger Games'?
The BBC has been forced to defend its new reality TV show which pits unemployed and low paid workers against each other for a cash prize. The corporation argued that Britain's Hardest Grafter is a "serious social experiment" and now a Hunger Games style battle, as has been suggested.

'The Maze Runner' and 'Neighbors' also scooped awards.
It's difficult to argue with the results of this year's MTV Movie Awards victors, who took home their much-deserved accolades on Sunday (April 12th 2015).

O'Brien will reprise his role in the upcoming sequel 'Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials'. Meanwhile, Zac Efron's abs in 'Neighbors' predictably won him Best Shirtless Performance, while his onscreen chemistry with Dave Franco made them Best Duo. 'Neighbors' was also the winner of Best WTF Moment, with Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne taking home the award.

Amy Adams' appearance on the 'Today' show has reportedly been cancelled after she refused to answer questions on the Sony hack.
It may be one of the most talked about scandals of the year but actress Amy Adams is keeping quiet about the Sony hacks and her decision has cost her latest film Big Eyes national television coverage.
Amy Adams, photographed at the New York premiere of Big Eyes, will not be appearing on the Today show after her appearance was cancelled.
So is this a gender thing... or just a management fail? We may never know.
The confidential files just keep on leaking from Sony and the latest batch has ignited some gender-related controversy. Basically, after some financial info was leaked, it was revealed that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams (whose names you may recognize from, well, every headline this year,) were paid significantly less than their male co-stars for their work in the Oscar-winning film American Hustle.
It seems like for Lawrence [l] and Adams [r], the pay gap is still a reality.
Aah, pay gap, how we’ve missed you. Well, not really, because the pay gap never went anywhere, not even within the film industry apparently. The good folks over at The Daily Beast have unearthed a message from a message sent from Andrew Gumpert, President of Business Affairs and Administration for Columbia Pictures to Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Doug Belgrad, President of SPE Motion Picture Group on December 5, 2013, confirming that Adams and Lawrence received roughly 7% of the film’s talent budget each. Meanwhile, co-stars Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale got... get ready for this... 9% each. I’m no math expert here, but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t even come out to the often cited statistic of 81 cents to a dollar.
The penultimate installment to 'The Hunger Games' franchise holds relevance in real life.
'Mockingjay' storms the US box office yet again on its second weekend like we knew it would, but what has made this chapter of the 'The Hunger Games' storyline such a driving success among audiences? Leading lady Jennifer Lawrence had a few ideas.
Jennifer Lawrence sees authenticity in 'The Hunger Games'
'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1' has so far managed to gross in excess of $254.4 million worldwide - not quite as much as its predecessors but still an impressive number as Katniss Everdeen's new challenges in District 13 captivate fans across the globe. The woman herself, Jennifer Lawrence, also being enamoured by Suzanne Collins' story, has a lot to say about what intrigued her so much about the story and characters and how it feels to capture a book character and bring it to life.

'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.
But is 'Mockingjay Part 1' just a set up for the best yet to come?
'The Hunger Games' continues to go from strength to strength, garnering solid reviews and big box office takings. The latest instalment, 'Mockingjay Part 1', debuted at number one on both the American and British box office charts, and looks likely to hold the top spot until 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' opens next month.
Jennifer Lawrence makes another stunning performance in 'Mockingjay Part 1'
Critics have given the film a 66% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, down from 84% for the 2012 original film and 89% for 'Catching Fire'. This is probably due to the fact that third novel 'Mockingjay' has been split into two movies, which leaves 'Part 1' sometimes feeling like a set-up to something much more exciting still to come.
Jennifer Lawrence is now a Top 40 singer, as well as Oscar-winning actress. Feel any better about yourself?
Jennifer Lawrence has added Top 40 artist to her list of achievements - just for a laugh, we imagine. The actress has claimed her first UK Top 40 single with new track The Hanging Tree taken from the soundtrack of The Hunger Games: 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 Hunger Games' star has explained why she has no social media presence.
Jennifer Lawrence is not on twitter, Instagram, or Facebook and that’s how it’s going to stay. Speaking to BBC Radio One, the Hunger Games star said that the internet had “scorned” her and vowed she will never jump on the social media bandwagon.

Jennifer Lawrence admits her rapid rise to fame was not unlike Katniss Everdeen's.
With 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1' coming out soon, things are getting a lot darker in the dystopian world of Panem. And while it was difficult for Jennifer Lawrence to draw on her personal life for a story so extraodinary, she admits parallels between she and Katniss Everdeen were still there.
Jennifer Lawrence identifies with Katniss in The Hunger Games
Katniss goes through some pretty hellish times in Suzanne Collins' fantasy trilogy; while the first book and movie saw her engage in the deadly Hunger Games for District 12 and subsequently win with her so-called boyfriend Peeta, the second thrust her into an unfamiliar and dangerous world of fame, recognition and respect. But after being forced into the Games a second time in 'Catching Fire' only for it to end with her awakening as she is whisked off with her friends and mentor to the long-forgotten District 13 having lost her home, she's facing a new kind of fame. She's now expected to lead the rebels in a war against the Capitol led by the tyrannical President Snow, who happens to be holding Peeta hostage.

Yes, it's actually happening. No news on whether it's a musical, but we would bet on "no."
The Hunger Games are heading down that well trodden path – from book to film to London stage show. The Hunger Games “theatrical experience” is on track for Summer 2016, according to The Hollywood Reporter and will open in a purpose-built theatre near Wembley Stadium.
Jennifer Lawrence will not star in the new thing, unfortunately.
Lionsgate is developing the project with a Dutch media company, Imagine Nation and U.S.-based Triangular Entertainment, who will use innovative and immersive staging techniques to bring the dystopian story to the stage.
The duo's brief romance has apparently come to an end only four months after they were rumoured to be getting close with one another.
It seems Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin's brief, and surprising, romance has come to an end after only four months of dating, that is if they were ever together at all as they both have always remained silent on their supposed relationship.
Lawrence is newly single again
Rumours first began to surface that J-Law was getting close to the Coldplay frontman this past June, shortly after the Hollywood actress split from her longtime boyfriend, actor Nicholas Hoult. Meanwhile, Martin and his wife Gwyneth Paltrow only announced their 'conscious uncoupling' this past March, after ten years of marriage.
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.

The 24 year-old actress' hilarious speech about her 'Hunger Games' co-star quickly stole the show at Elle's Women in Hollywood Celebration.
On Monday evening (Oct 20th), some of the world's most talented female stars were gathered at the 2014 Elle's Women in Hollywood Celebration, so it is no surprise Jennifer Lawrence was in attendance, but this time it wasn't her receiving the honour.
Lawrence quickly stole the show at Elle's Women in Hollywood Celebration
However, when the 24 year-old actress presented her 'Hunger Games' co-star Elizabeth Banks, she quickly stole the show by making the packed out audience at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills fall into a fit of laughter.
"When I first read the script," begins director Susanne Bier, "I called Nick Wechsler (one of the film's producers) and I said 'I think this should be Bradley Cooper and Jenifer Lawrence'". In this featurette for 'Serena', the two lead actors discuss their mutual respect for one-another, and their excitement to work together on the film. Bradley Cooper states "I've sort of hit the jack-pot, being able to work with Jennifer Lawrence." In response, Lawrence explains why their previous work together has helped, as they found it "easy to just kind of jump into it." 'Serena' serves as the third time Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have worked together on a film.

The ex-couple will have to get professional and put aside their history in 'X-Men: Apocalypse', due to start shooting next year.

Lawrence and Hoult first met on the set of one of the previous films in the series, X-Men: First Class, in 2011. But in August this year the pair announced their split, citing busy schedules.
