'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' trailer (image: Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1' poster) The Hunger Games: Mockingjay trailer — or more specifically, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 trailer — has been around for a little while. So this is one of those better-late-than-never posts. Directed by Francis Lawrence, who also handled the previous film in the franchise, Catching Fire, Mockingjay – Part 1 brings back Best Actress Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne. Below you can watch The Hunger Games: Mockingjay trailer titled “The Mockingjay Lives.” As you can see in the trailer, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 revolves around subversive revolutionary and freedom fighter Katniss Everdeen, who sets out to rescue Peeta, a sort of prisoner whose "uniform" is a funky white costume.

Four months into its existence, Saban Films made a serious statement at the Toronto Film Festival as it bought three films — John Travolta’s “The Forger,” Taylor Lautner’s “Tracers” and Hayden Christensen’s “American Heist.”
Bromiley should know. Before signing on to the Saban post in the spring, he’d been the key acquisitions exec for Image Entertainment.
“We’ve stuck to our business plan by focusing on commercial high-quality product, with ‘The Homesman’ being a prestige title.”
Bromiley also said he was a bit disappointed over the overall quality of films for sale at Tiff — with one notable exception: forereclusure drama “99 Homes, »

Earlier this week, news broke that writer-director Tommy Wirkola had finished the script for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2, but he was unsure whether or not star of the original, Jeremy Renner, would be able to return. Now, Cinema Blend has reached out to the actor for his answer, and while he doesn't know if he can squeeze this sequel into his schedule, he wouldn't balk at returning to the role of Hansel.
Jeremy Renner is not signed for a sequel. When Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters came out, it was not considered to be a franchise contender, and was even moved by the studio from its original March 2012 release date to January of last year, which is viewed as a dumping ground for films that are potential money losers. The movie proved to be a hit, though, pulling in $226 million worldwide from a $50 million production budget. A sequel was green lit, »
As the final acquisition deals roll in on Toronto’s 2014 film festival movies, a couple of overriding themes emerged that bode well for the appetite for indie fare and have sellers smacking their lips for Afm, Sundance, Berlin and beyond. In a fest where Harvey Weinstein left his checkbook home and didn’t make a single splashy deal, I have never seen so many new players make statement buys at a festival than happened in Toronto.
The other intriguing development came on the fest’s biggest deal, when Paramount Pictures swooped into the auction of the Chris Rock-directed comedy Top Five, and blew buyers out of the water by paying $12.5 million for worldwide rights. It was the second straight fest where Paramount did this, after the studio made a precedent-setting pre-buy Cannes deal for the Denis Villeneuve-directed Amy Adams sci-fi film Story Of Your Life.

The Voice launches its seventh season next week, with Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams joining the well-established buddy comedy that is Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. At a press luncheon for the show earlier this month, the coaches and host Carson Daly—minus Williams—discussed the new group’s dynamic and how Levine and Shelton welcomed the two newcomers into the fold. (Levine claimed to be nice; Shelton said “I’m going to beat you.”) Stefani also revealed she has a great description of Williams up her well-tailored sleeve. (She was wearing pinstripes; Levine wore a Hawaiian shirt.) Here are »

The Maze Runner will finally hit theaters this Friday, September 19th.
Published in October 2009 and based upon the first book in a bestselling series by James Dashner, the novel became a New York Times Best Seller and captured the imaginations of readers around the world. Fans have described it as a combination of Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and the legendary television series Lost.
Books to film – especially young adult adaptations – are big bucks at the box office. Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga franchises have collectively grossed more than $5 billion at the worldwide box office, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the 10th highest-grossing film of all time.
Over the weekend, Variety reported:

She hasn't given up on love. But she's no longer dating, at least for now. After a string of failed relationships, most of whom influenced her music - Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, Conor Kennedy and Harry Styles - Taylor Swift now says she's on hiatus from romance. In fact, she says she hasn't dated anyone since she and Styles, the One Direction singer, broke up more than a year and a half ago. "Like, have not gone on a date," the pop star, 24, tells Rolling Stone. "People are going to feel sorry for me when you write that. »

Two splashy deals have revived a slow market for films at this year’s Toronto Film Festival.
Buyers and sellers were getting concerned that no one would reach for their checkbooks until a pair of Scott Rudin produced pictures sparked bidding wars among distributors willing to shell out big bucks. U.S. rights for Noah Baumbach’s “While We're Young” sold to A24 for $4 million, while global rights to Chris Rock’s “Top Five” will likely be nabbed by Paramount for $12.5 million and a $20 million P&A commitment.
Those major paydays aside, there is a mounting sense among the Hollywood types who made the cross-continent trek to the Canadian city that this year’s festival will go down as a slow boil that never bubbled over.
