Jennifer Lawrence Goes to War in New The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Images

17 September 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate has unveiled a collection of new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images from the first half of director Francis Lawrence’s conclusion to the franchise.  As seen in the full-length trailer, the story finds Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss on the frontlines of an all-out war between the rebels of District 13 and the Capitol.  These new images showcase Katniss’ battle-readiness, but the highlight of Mockingay – Part 1 for me continues to be Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer’s Cressida.  She looks absolutely badass in the role, and after hearing Dormer’s thoughts on women in the movie industry at the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel at this year’s Comic-Con, I’m essentially ready to vote her into office. Hit the jump to take a look at the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images.  The film also stars Liam HemsworthWoody HarrelsonJulianne Moore, »

Exclusive: Jennifer Lawrence Shares an Inspirational Message After Hacking Scandal

16 September 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jennifer Lawrence was spotted looking cute and casual in Malibu, CA, last week, and we have the exclusive pictures! The actress stopped at a store while sporting denim shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt with an uplifting quote by children's author Roald Dahl that read, "If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely." Jennifer's fashion choices have recently earned her the esteemed position of event cochair for the 2015 Met Gala; the Costume Institute and Vogue announced the exciting news on Friday, and Jennifer will join past honorees like Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Jennifer's three-time onscreen costar Bradley Cooper. Jennifer has been lying low since nude photos of her, along with many other actresses, were hacked and leaked on the Internet earlier this month. Though Jennifer has yet to comment on the incident, her Hunger Games costar Elizabeth Banks came to her defense, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Trailer Finally Hits

15 September 2014 2:26 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which has delivered us with wave after wave of posters and tiny tease videos, finally has a trailer, and it’s actually pretty cool, though perhaps not especially informative for those who haven’t read the books, and are instead just making their way through the films.

We’ve already seen some very short clips of Peeta doing publicity shots, and we get more of that, and we get to see Katniss throwing her weight around a bit, but for the most part, you’ve got to know what’s going on if you want to know what the trailer is giving you.

One question that a lot of people have going in, which the trailer doesn’t really hint at, is where exactly the first one ends. I actually thought we might get a little nugget that might help people figure this out, »

Fans turn Katniss into Batniss

15 September 2014 11:19 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

One of the recent posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 made Katniss look a little bit like Batman, what with her sleek, black armor. Well, Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks thought so too, and inspired the fansite QuarterQuell.org to take the comparison to the next level. The result? A series of posters for The Dark Katniss Rises, which find Katniss and Hunger Games imagery embedded in posters for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films. The results? Well, I’d watch this movie.

After @ElizabethBanks’ tweet, we couldn’t really resist…what do you think? @ninajacobson #batniss #Mockingjay pic. »

Jennifer Lawrence fights back in new 'Mockingjay - Part 1' trailer

15 September 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In about two months, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1" will arrive on the big screen.  But, like a massive military force softening up an enemy before a ground invasion, we keep getting new, fresh, looks at the upcoming film designed to shock and awe. Lionsgate has just released a new trailer called "The Mockingjay Lives," and it offers up more of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) than we have yet seen in this third entry in the franchise.  What is abundantly clear from the trailer is that Katniss is still struggling with her role and all that has happened to her – as she tells President Snow (Donald Sutherland), this was not a battle she chose; she never wanted to be in the games, she just wanted to save her sister. We do not always get to choose our battles however, sometimes they are thrust upon us and we can either »

The Rebellion Takes Flight in Full-Length The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Trailer

15 September 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate has released the full-length The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 trailer for the first half of director Francis Lawrence’s conclusion to the Hunger Games franchise.  The film finds Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) at the forefront of the rebellion in District 13 while Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) are held captive in the Capitol.  Francis Lawrence surprised the hell out of me with Catching Fire, which I thought was hands-down the best "tentpole" film of last year, and so I have high hopes for his adaptation of Mockingjay (the weakest book of the trilogy).  What strikes me most about this trailer is that the film appears to be in the vein of an action pic, whereas Catching Fire was more of a thriller and the first film was essentially a survival movie.  District 13 isn't exactly a cinematic location and there's a lot of bunker-set scenes in the book, »
