Three more official images from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire have trickled online. While this trio of pictures contains nary a glimpse at Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, Gale Hawthorne, or even Finnick Odair. Instead, these images show off several returning characters, as well as a first look at a pivotal new player, and an explanation from the filmmakers as to the omission of some important figures from the novel by Suzanne Collins.
Who’s in? Who’s out? The Oscar nominees have now been announced and while the Academy did get a lot right, there were also some glaring omissions. The 3 biggest surprises: No Ben Affleck for Best Director. No John Hawkes for Best Actor. No Leonardo DiCaprio for Best Supporting Actor. What’s so shocking about those “snubs”- and every year there are the inevitable few- is that I would argue that all 3 of them could have WON the Oscar had they been nominated. Let’s take a closer look at the 6 main categories, both the nominees and the snubs, and what it all means…
The hit horror-thriller House at the End of the Street is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download, providing audiences with the opportunity to see ascending superstar and acclaimed young actress Jennifer Lawrence redefining feeble notions of just what it means to be a "scream queen."
Following yesterday's reveal of the first official image from this year's sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, we have two more new Lionsgate-approved pictures from the film featuring two major characters at whom we didn't get so much as a peek yesterday.
It's been some time since we've heard a dispatch from the beleaguered citizenry of Panem, so how about the first official look at Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin in next year's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire?
Synopsis: Oscar® nominee Jennifer Lawrence, fresh off her success in the worldwide hit The Hunger Games, and Oscar nominee Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas, Piranha 3D) star in this edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller about a teenager, Elissa, and her divorced mom, Sarah, who move into an upscale neighborhood to start a better life. But after they learn of rumors that the nearby woods are haunted by a homicidal killer, and Elissa befriends the mysterious sole survivor of a grisly double murder that took place in the house next door, their dreams for a brighter future spiral into a twisted nightmare. Things go smoothly at first: Sarah (Elizabeth Shue) finds a good job and meets a nice guy while Elissa (Jennifer Lawrence) settles in at school and finds herself drawn to the boy next door, Ryan (Max Thieriot, My Soul to Take). Ryan seems like a kindred spirit, misunderstood and passionate, and Elissa sympathizes with his isolation—he is still shunned by the town years after his deranged sister Carrie Anne murdered their parents in a fit of inexplicable rage. But as Ryan and Elissa spend more time together, details of his past come to the surface. Finding out the truth could be the worst thing that ever happened to Elissa.
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Max Thieriot, Elisabeth Shue, Gil Bellows
Director: Mark Tonderai
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced the full list of nominees for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.
Though the organization and the award have had their issues with legitimacy, the 70th Annual Golden Globes will once again uphold their status as a solid warm up for the Academy Awards. This is principally because, regardless of who wins or the legitimacy of the award, it's fun to see extraordinarily pretty people dress up.
As expected, X-Men: First Class stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult have all been confirmed to return for X-Men: Days of Future Past, the sequel to last year's prequel. But here's where things get bananas: Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will reprise their roles as Professor X and Magneto, too.
It's still a year out from release, but Lionsgate is wasting no time building up anticipation for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Since the sequel is still in production, it's too early for your standard poster or even a teaser poster, really, so instead we've got a motion poster that adds a bit of movement to a familiar, fiery image.
Synopsis: Life doesn’t always go according to plan… Pat Solitano has lost everything–his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother and father after spending eight months in a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat’s parents want is for him to get back on his feet–and to share their family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he’ll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives.
