We all know the story of Superman: crashed-landed on Earth as a baby, escaping the destruction of his home planet; gets discovered by small-town couple who choose to keep his origins secret as they raise him as their own. Eventually, he grows up to learn his true destiny and starts leaping tall buildings in single […]
I’ll admit it right off: I do not want or need a new Battlestar Galactica. Ron Moore‘s reimagined series is the touchstone example of how to take an existing franchise and update it, modern story and modern casting at it’s best. For whatever reason, Universal decided in 2014 it was time (already, wth) to redo the […]
A private plane carrying actress Jennifer Lawrence had to make an emergency landing in Buffalo, N.Y. after it suffered a double engine failure. The actress, known for her roles in the Hunger Games and X-Men franchises, was traveling from her home town of Louisville, KY where she was visiting family. The first engine failed at […]
Jennifer Lawrence, star of the current but soon-due-for-a-reboot X-Men franchise and Hunger Games movies, published an editorial on Broadly today addressing the recent U.S. presidential election. Titled “Don’t Be Afraid, Be Loud,” Lawrence’s editorial expresses shock at Donald Trump’s win, and examines what the election will mean for her. “Is this the stark reality?” Lawrence […]
Loot Crate’s offering for November is Combat-themed. But no boy’s own war comics here, it’s mostly about the games and the films this month… Fallout 4, Blizzard, Capcom and, with the film on its way, a little Hunger Games…. As soon as we hear anything we’ll let you know. Till then you can get added […]
Amandla Stenberg is best known for her role in The Hunger Games. But we also reported she was working on a prose novel Niobe with author and publisher Sebastian A. Jones, a fellow we’ve been following for a few years, as part of his wider fantasy work. But it seems that the planned novel is now a comic book, with Chicago artist […]

The first trailer for the final part in the Hunger Games saga has been released and we see that Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is leading a revolution against President Snow (Donald Suthernland)… but it feels like maybe Snow is still controlling the board. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 hits theaters November 20th. [youtube]https://youtu.be/KmYNkasYthg[/youtube]
Frank Cho wrote yesterday, Today is my sweet daughter’s birthday. I can’t believe my little baby is 11 years old today. Happy birthday, Samantha! My daughter, being a big fan of Jennifer Lawrence, wanted a drawing of Katniss from the Hunger Games. Now, my daughter never asked for my art nor, to my knowledge, expressed […]
In the movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I, the character of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) sings a rebel anthem to help rally Pollux. It is caught on film and used as a propaganda piece to gain support for the cause. Here we have a recording of the song, The Hanging Tree sung by Lawrence and […]
Going to borrow from Wikipedia here: A dystopia society set in “Panem”, a country consisting of the wealthy Capitol and twelve districts in varying states of poverty. Every year, children are chosen to participate in a compulsory annual televised death match called The Hunger Games. This is what Lionsgate CEO, Jon Feltheimer, thinks will make a good theme park. […]
Keeping with the propoganda-themed marketing so far, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has released a first teaser trailer, showing nothing more than Donald Sutherland’s President Snow delivering a message about how great Panem is. And that’s a kidnapped and brainwashed Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) standing dutifully next to him, in case you miss how […]
There will be no CGI or stand-ins used to fill in the gaps left when Philip Seymour Hoffman died before completing filming.
So there’s a good look at what shirts and pins at Hot Topic will look like in several months time.
The actor clearly has no problem being typecast.
This film not only stands alongside the first, it feels like the next, vital instalment in a series. It's like we're getting episodes of a great TV show... just really very, very spaced out.
More Star Wars is coming to Disney parks, and Lionsgate mulls over a Hunger Games theme park. One of these is a good idea.
Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth have a strained confrontation in the first clip from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Prepare to have that whistle stuck in your head again.
This new promo for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire really sells the part of the books that made me such a fan of them.
