17 things you never knew about The Hunger Games

16 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The beginning of the end is nigh for Hunger Games fans – Mockingjay: Part 1 is out in cinemas now, and for our money it's the best in the series yet.

Fans of Suzanne Collins' book trilogy and the Lionsgate adaptations are about as dedicated as they come, as we discovered earlier this month at the film's world premiere in London.

But we've set ourselves the challenge of uncovering a few tidbits that might not be widely known. Below are 17 things you probably never knew about The Hunger Games.

1. The three-fingered salute has become iconic for Hunger Games fans, first seen as a gesture of solidarity in District 12 and later adopted by Katniss as a revolutionary gesture. But its significance reached new levels this year when the salute was adopted as a form of silent resistance by protestors in Thailand this year, and subsequently banned by the military.

Box Office: The Hunger Games Opens Big With $17 Million On Thursday Night

21 November 2014 6:59 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 has been met with a mostly very positive response, and while some have argued that the movie should not have been split into two, you can't blame Lionsgate in the least based on these box office numbers! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Francis Lawrence's big screen adaptation of the Suzanne Collins penned novel had the best Thursday night debut of 2015, earning $17 million. That's quite a bit less than The Hunger Games: Catching Fire's $25.3 million, but that one was in IMAX theaters as well. Mockingjay is expected to easily pass the $100 million mark this weekend, topping the debuts of both Transformers: Age of Extinction and Guardians of the Galaxy. The movie stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore and Natalie Dormer. Part 1 and Part 2 were apparently shot back to »

15 Actors Almost Cast In The Hunger Games

19 November 2014 6:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lionsgate

The Hunger Games has become a most unique hit. While young adult adaptations tend to pander to the converted, all but alienating those not already addicted to the source novels (hello Twilight), the dystopian sci-fi has managed to tap into the mainstream, balancing the swoon-inducing romance with confident, large-scale action. Everyone knew it would be big, but no one expected it to be this good.

It’s now the franchise to beat, with countless other similar series being brought to life, albeit to distinctly less success. What The Hunger Games has that Divergent or The Maze Runner intrinsically lack (aside from a first movie that actually worked on its own) is the characters, who feel like real people, rather than avatars of teenage angst.

The quality of acting involved certainly helps. We’re so used to Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair, Jena Malone as Johanna Mason and, »

P.T. Pinups

18 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

 

I'm not a fan of Inherent Vice much but it will inspire lots of fun fan art and/or official stuff... like this banner poster starring Katherine Waterston as "Shasta Fay". (Her hair is filled with secrets characters.)

I wish P.T. still wrote memorable female characters (sigh) even the kind of vacant bimbos like Rollergirl used to be awesome. With There Will Be Blood he basically left them behind altogether. Inherent Vice has a dozen or so female roles and only two of them are halfway interesting (Yay, Jena Malone and Jeannie Berlin cameos).

Uh-oh... I feel a list attack coming on. It can't be stopped 

Female Characters in P.T. Anderson films from Most Fascinating to Least

(not comprehensive but the major ones) 

 

Amber Waves (Boogie Nights) Linda Partridge (Magnolia) Rollergirl (Boogie Nights) Gwenovier (Magnolia) Lena Leonard (Punch-Drunk Love) Peggy Dodd (The Master) Clementine (Hard Eight) Jessie St Vincent »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I

Written for the screen by Peter Craig and Danny Strong

Directed by Francis Lawrence

USA, 2014

In a previous review of the second instalment of The Hunger Games series for this website, I expressed some dismay that Catching Fire didn’t really have a conclusion to speak of, with its cliffhanger ending reminding me less of The Empire Strikes Back and more of The Matrix Reloaded or Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. The argument I made was that what makes the Star Wars film still satisfying is that it has an actual sense of narrative progression and character achievement despite abandoning its players in the midst of doom and gloom. Going back and revisiting Catching Fire, I admit I may have been a little harsh as quite a bit of substantial material in terms of world-building and character development is crammed »

Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin…well, easy for her to say.

The cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 hit the red carpet for the movie's La premiere on Monday, and Jennifer Lawrence stunned in a white dress. The big night comes just a week after the film made its world premiere in London, where the ladies of Mockingjay stepped out in style. This time around, Jena Malone rocked a red gown and Willow Shields donned a green dress with a gorgeous train, while Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth looked dapper in suits. Things were more casual over the weekend, as the group got together in the Big Apple for a hilarious Saturday Night Live appearance and the Mockingjay press conference, where Jennifer talked about the funny photo she took on set. Along with the rest of the cast, Jennifer has been making the press rounds over the past week, cracking all kinds of jokes during interviews and explaining »

'Inherent Vice' International Trailer Starring Joaquin Phoenix

17 November 2014 11:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For those who didn't get to catch Inherent Vice at the New York Film Festival or AFI Fest in Los Angeles recently, you'll have to wait until director Paul Thomas Anderson's adaptation hits theaters in limited release on December 12, before expanding nationwide on January 9. For those PTA fans who live in London, a new international trailer reveals that a special screening will be held on Wednesday, November 19 at the Prince Charles Cinema (clickHere to purchase tickets for that screening).

Writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson cut together the new footage himself for this U.K. trailer, which features Joaquin Phoenix as L.A. private detective Doc Sportello, who takes on a case involving his ex lover's billionaire boyfriend, along with an all-star supporting cast featuring Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Martin Short, Benicio Del Toro and Michael K.

New Paul Thomas Anderson-Cut Inherent Vice Trailer Teases a London Screening This Wednesday

17 November 2014 10:54 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new Inherent Vice trailer has landed online thanks to a bit of promotion for an upcoming screening of the film at the Prince Charles Cinema in London on Wednesday, November 19th.  The trailer has some new footage, but most notably it was apparently put together by writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson himself.  While the picture received a bit of a befuddled response after its premiere at the New York Film Festival, its unveiling at AFI Fest last week enjoyed a much warmer reception.  Perhaps going into the film knowing that it’s a semi-nonsensical journey makes for a better viewing experience.  Whatever the case, I’m still really, really looking forward to this one, and this short new trailer is a delight. Check out the new Inherent Vice trailer after the jump along with a new poster, click here for tickets to the London screening, and click here to »
