The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 Ost review

19 November 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

You only have to look at Zane Lowe's re-scoring of Drive to see how impassioned fans get about film soundtracks. In fairness, that was a brave undertaking, and swapping College & Electric Youth's sublime 'A Real Hero' for The 1975 in that aqueduct scene aside, it wasn't a total disaster. But the DJ's reimagining of the ineffably stylish thriller was still met with widespread scorn.

Admittedly, it was a strange choice of project (why mess with perfection?), although it's perhaps stranger still that altering the soundtrack from a film just three years old could be branded an act of sacrilege and defacement. But it's proof if proof were needed that scores worth their salt can quickly wedge themselves into the Zeitgeist and become as revered as the films themselves.

So will the same be said of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 in a few years' time? Lorde only knows… »

'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Soundtrack: A Track-by-Track Review

19 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Every year for the past few years, a new "Hunger Games" movie has been unleashed on the world and those releases have come complete with a slew of tie-in merchandise, cunningly synergistic and essential in the studio's desire to build hype and awareness around the young-adult novel adaptations (which star Jennifer Lawrence and are based on books by Suzanne Collins, of course).

But the soundtracks to the films have become mini-events in and of themselves, able to build the kind of fervor the movies usually do (with just as much anticipation and speculation). We attended the junket for next week's "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1"over the weekend, and were handed a copy of the brand-new album (out now physically and digitally) and figured we should rundown the album properly. So here we go!

(Sorry, streaming versions of the songs weren't available for all tracks!)

I'm a Celebrity: 9 things we learned from Joe, Laura and Rob

15 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! is back tomorrow... and three people who know a lot about the show are its spinoff's hosts Joe Swash, Laura Whitmore and Rob Beckett.

The trio, who have flown to Aus for the next month so that they can pop up on ITV2's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here Now!, recently sat down with us to chat dream guests, squabbling with each other, annoying celebrities who refuse trials and much much more. So here are 9 things we learned from them!

1. Joe - who has obviously been in the jungle himself - thinks Laura and Rob could handle it.

"Definitely," he said. "I think they'd both do brilliantly. I think they've both seen enough of it to know how it works. I think Laura – all girls sort of struggle with the fact that they've got no makeup or mirrors or hairdryers. »

Ariana Grande and Charli Xcx share new 'Mockingjay' soundtrack songs

14 November 2014 10:29 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The "Hunger Games" movies have always offered a veritable feast of new music from major pop acts over the past few years, and the Lorde-curated soundtrack to the upcoming "Mockinjay - Part I" may boast the biggest roster yet. This week, tracks from both Major Lazer (featuring Ariana Grande), and Charli Xcx have been released. Xcx's "Kingdom" features the help Simon LeBon (of new wave legends Duran Duran), and is appropriately cinematic and sweeping. Initially powered by some hypnotic piano and strings and anachronistic drum machine effects, it hits its stride once LeBon's distinctive vocals are paired with Xcx's breathiness. Listen to it here: Meanwhile, Grande and the Diplo-led Major Lazer dropped their collaboration, entitled "All My Love," yesterday. It's no surprise that their contribution is a more upbeat, danceable jam than "Kingdom." Grande shows off her formidable vocal range over a heavy, synthy beat with a slightly Caribbean feel. »

4 Things You Need to Know About Kim Kardashian's Paper Magazine Shoot

13 November 2014 1:35 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

In the aftermath of Kim Kardashian's sexy Paper magazine photo shoot, public reactions have ranged from angry to disapproving to downright hilarious; loads of people, famous or not, have shared memes mocking the scandalous shots, and Glee star Naya Rivera even posted a comment on Kim's Instagram snap that called her parenting into question, saying, "You're someone's mother."

She wanted to and it kind of fit." Since there have been so many questions, complaints, and concerns about Kim »

Lorde dances for you -- or herself? -- in 'Yellow Flick Beat' music video

6 November 2014 9:38 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Lorde stars in the music video to her latest "Yellow Flicker Beat," and she got all dressed up in a half-dozen ways for you. Or is it for her? The New Zealand songwriter turns 18 tomorrow and is celebrating in all manner of style, for a song that was made for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1." Some of it, she's rocking dress for a ball. Most of the rest of the time, though, she's like a rare spirit that wanders the night in some unisex button-downs and a red get-up that will have you watching Prince videos. She's personifying her own protagonist of the song, without nary a Katniss to be seen. "Yellow Flicker Beat" sits on the "Mockingjay" tracklist besides new songs from Chemical Brothers with Miguel, Pusha T, Haim, Major Lazer with Ariana Grande, Charli Xcx, Grace Jones, a Kanye West remix and more. The soundtrack will be out on Nov. »

Ariana Grande is suiting up for "The Hunger Games."

Kate Moss Still Has the Power to Make Guys Like Harry Styles All Giggly

29 October 2014 6:23 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Kate Moss looked like she was in a flirty mood when she attended a party at Annabel's in London on Tuesday night. The 40-year-old supermodel was seen giggling with fellow guest Harry Styles, who got a prime seat next to Kate during dinner and greeted her with a kiss. (To be fair, we can't blame Kate for working her charm on Harry as he is downright adorable.) Later, she took over the DJ booth to dance up a storm with DJ Fat Tony and playfully toss her marabou shrug around. Kate's fun antics were completely appropriate as the fete was to celebrate the premiere of A String of Naked Lightbulbs, a documentary about Annabel's and the history of the famed nightclub. Other guests at the party included talk-show host Graham Norton and singer Grace Jones, who performed for the crowd during the bash. »

Lorde-Curated The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Soundtrack Includes Kanye West And Chemical Brothers

22 October 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it was announced that “Royals” chanteuse Lorde had been tapped to curate the soundtrack for this fall’s hotly anticipated The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, general sentiment was that the young Grammy winner was a perfect choice for the task. Talented, zeitgeisty and uncommonly brooding, Lorde certainly fit with the increasingly heavy and dramatic tone of the penultimate franchise entry. And now, with the emergence of an official tracklist for the soundtrack she curated, it’s clear that we had good reason to be excited.

On the album, Lorde compiled a mixture of highly respected music icons, skilled up-and-comers and unexpected guests. The inclusion of The Chemical Brothers, who so memorably scored Joe Wright’s Hanna, is particularly thrilling, as is a completely out-of-left-field appearance from Kanye West, who’ll be reworking a song by Lorde (who herself appears on four tracks).

Though we already knew about lead-off single “Yellow Flicker Beat, »
