Two new films hit theaters this weekend—Penguins of Madagascar and Horrible Bosses 2—but they aren't likely to knock The Hunger Games out of the top spot. Not even cute birds and funny sequels can beat the power of the massive franchise—or the power of Jennifer Lawrence. Although The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 didn't do as well as previous Hunger Games films' opening weekends, it did open stronger than any other film this year with a weekend total of $121.9 million. And that alone sets it up for a strong second weekend, even up against two wide releases. »

Earlier this year, we showed you a bunch of inspirational celebrity photos that were guaranteed to make you smile. But you know what we realized? This year alone was filled with so many amazing moments, we thought we'd take some time to highlight the year we've had. From multiple Jennifer Lawrence shenanigans (like when she face-palmed Emma Watson at Paris Fashion Week) to the hilariously unimpressed faces of Prince George, this year has been quite the trip. Keep reading to reminisce and smile all over again. »
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, 2014.
Directed by Francis Lawrence.
The phenomena of The Hunger Games has been interesting to watch and as we come to the penultimate film it’s been a pleasure to see the franchise develop and for its star Jennifer Lawrence to flourish in the box office and indie scene. Saying that Mockingjay – Part 1 is the weakest so far and has fallen into the commercial trap of splitting the final book into two films.
Part 1 follows the aftermath of Katniss’ destruction of the force field at the end of Catching Fire. Peeta (Hutcherson) has been kidnapped by the Capitol, District 12 lies »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 may be dominating the U.K. box office, scoring the year's biggest opening weekend with $19.9 million, but Jennifer Lawrence looks to have landed a more unlikely chart positioning elsewhere. The actress sings on "The Hanging Tree," which is included on the film's soundtrack. According to the U.K.'s Official Charts Company, the song is now positioned at number 29 on the charts after calculating midweek sales.

It looks like The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 will be the #1 movie at the box office this weekend, with a boost from the Thanksgiving holiday. Horrible Bosses 2 and Penguins of Madagascar are going to take some of the attention away from the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novel, but likely won't be able to top the $80 million haul which the first half of The Hunger Games finale will earn. Instead, they're each expected to earn somewhere between $35 - $45 million each. These are all fairly early predictions, but the Jennifer Lawrence led flick should come out on top regardless. The Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens teaser likely won't make a difference either, especially as it's now been confirmed to be released online tomorrow (details on that here if you missed them). If none of the movies above appeal to you, then hunt down The Imitation Game »
Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1″ flew to a powerful $14.5 million on Wednesday at the pre-Thanksgiving box office to lift its six-day domestic total to $158 million.
The Jennifer Lawrence franchise outdistanced a solid debut from Fox/DreamWorks’ “The Penguins of Madagascar,” which drew $7 million Wednesday — signaling a total in the $42 million to $44 million range for the five days through Sunday.
New Line’s launch of “Horrible Bosses 2″ also turned in a decent showing on Wednesday in the $5 million range, including $1 million in Tuesday night showings. The R-rated comedy sequel is projected to take in about $35 million for the Wednesday-Sunday Thanksgiving holiday period.
The original “Horrible Bosses” opened in July, 2011, with $28.3 million on its way to $117 million in the U.S. and $209.6 million worldwide.
The Wednesday before Thanksgiving has been a historically strong day for moviegoing with “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” taking in an impressive $20 million on the day last year. »

Rest assured, Jennifer Lawrence has an ally in Natalie Dormer, both onscreen and off. The Game of Thrones badass, who's currently logging big-screen face time as District rebellion documentarian Cressida inThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1, recently offered up her take on the nude photo leak that ensnared J.Law and other celebs this fall. "What Jen went through recently was just horrific," Dormer says in Nylon's December 2014/Jan 2015 double issue. "And I don't think there's any level of fame that can justify that kind of invasion into privacy, not to mention laws being broken. I mean, people just need to get a grip if they think that's even halfway »
Jennifer Lawrence is an A-lister living like a reality TV star.
A self-proclaimed reality TV junkie, the Oscar winner joined her gal pals for dinner a few days ago at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant Pump in West Hollywood. Fans of Vanderpump, like JLaw, are also familiar with her Bravo spin-off show, Vanderpump Rules, that follows the drama surrounding the reality TV star's restaurants.

While dining at Pump, the 24-year-old actress and her friends decided to recreate the intro to Vanderpump Rules, starring themselves and including the same theme song. "We feel like the Vanderpump Rules intro should be more like this!" Sarni Rogers Instagrammed.

Lawrence's part in »
Jennifer Lawrence came out of the "Hunger Games" franchise with an unexpected bonus: a hot best friend.
In a new interview with Nylon magazine, the Oscar winner, 24, raved about her co-star, Liam Hemsworth, when asked to name something she learned about herself that surprised her.
"I guess the thing that surprised me is that I would never expect to ever have a man this good-looking ever be my best friend," she told the mag of Liam. "I just would never assume those things could happen, but he is.

Director Francis Lawrence has said that more films are being considered for the hit young adult franchise.
"Everybody is thinking about it, and talking about it," the Mockingjay director told MTV.
"I just think that one has to go into that world carefully. Because I think a huge part of what makes the stories great is that it was really built on this idea of the consequence of war, and you have an amazing character like Katniss at the centre of it.
"And so to just say, 'Oh, we're still in the Hunger Games world', I think is really risky, and you need to make sure that you have something new to say, and either new characters need to be created that are just as compelling as Katniss."
He continued: "It's a tricky thing, but I'm definitely open to talking about it, »
Jennifer Lawrence had a fan-girl moment on Saturday night. The Hunger Games star, along with five other girlfriends, hit up Lisa Vanderpump's Los Angeles eatery and gay bar Pump and met the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and her famous pooch Giggy. Lawrence, a self-proclaimed Housewives fan, came to the restaurant unannounced, and according to a source, didn't have a reservation. "When Lisa found out Jennifer was seated [unknowingly] outside on the patio, she graciously gave up her table (and pink chair) in the center of [...] »

This has got to be one of the more interesting MPAA ratings bulletins in a while and not because of the recognizable names, but more for the abundance of sequels I had never heard of. The only one I've heard of (and have actually seen and entirely disliked) is Rec 4: Apocalypse, but beyond that we have Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer's Curse, Hayride 2 (a sequel to a movie about a serial killer haunting a family hayride) and did you know they made a sequel to The Man With The Iron Fists and yes, RZA is back and starring and also wrote the screenplay and it may or may not be called The Man with the Iron Fists: Sting of the Scorpion. The first one made just over $19 million worldwide on a $15 million budget, my guess is he got about $5 million to make this one... max. As for the films we've »

As you prepare to enter a well-deserved food coma this Thanksgiving, it’s important to have a game plan for entertaining the different groups of people who will be forcing you to sleep on the couch. From your children to those pesky in-laws and even reunited siblings, we have the perfect solution to your, “How am I going to deal with these people?!” crisis: Movies.
It seems obvious, but people tend to forget movie theaters are open on holidays. So, when you can’t deal with Uncle David complaining about his neighbor or your brother pestering you about visiting more, take them to one of the many films out this month, and enjoy some silent bonding (the best type of bonding in our humble opinion).
Below, we’ve provided the go-to movie for practically every situation that will come up this Turkey Day. Keep this list handy, folks. Trust us: You’ll need it. »

Michael Stevens for "The Good" :
"Mockingjay" has some interesting action sequences.
I also enjoyed Donald Sutherland relishing his screen time as the evil 'President Snow'.
The late Philip Seymour Hoffman delivers a good-natured last screen performance...
Jennifer Lawrence as 'Katniss' makes emotional use of her extreme close-ups...
Graf Orlok for "The Bad":
I must admit (along with millions of other people) that I may have previously caught a 'glimpse' of those Jennifer Lawrence 'cloud' images on the internet.
That being said, the actress has now endeared herself to me even more than before. I cannot stop looking at her, »

The World Made Straight has released its first trailer.
It centres around a young man (Irvine) who takes refuge from his abusive father with a neighbour (Wyle).
But he begins to realise that his new protector has a dark past closely linked to his own.
The World Made Straight will arrive in Us cinemas and on VOD on January 9. A UK cinematic release date is yet to be announced. »
Once the Mockingjay movies are done, there may yet be more The Hunger Games movies...
It's often forgotten that Lionsgate pretty much bet the house on making the first The Hunger Games film. It reportedly scraped the budget together in part by trimming back a whole bunch of films it had in production at the time, and was eventually rewarded with one of the bigger movie series on the planet right now. At the time of writing, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has nearly $300m in the bank worldwide after just under a week.
Director Francis Lawrence, who has made the last two The Hunger Games films, now has the job of getting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 ready for this time next year. But even though that's the point where Suzanne Collins' books come to an end, it doesn't mean the movies will.

Although it’s been done before several times now, I can only imagine how hard it must be to decide exactly where to split a book in half to make it two or more movies. Most novels have a beginning, middle, climax, and an end. What can a filmmaker do to leave audiences feeling satisfied when there’s no big payoff or conclusion to what they’re taking in? Here is where the problem lies for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1.
Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) has brought down the Hunger Games. President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and his forces look to stomp out a revolution that could end his reign. Katniss reluctantly accepts her place as the symbol of freedom for the band of rebels quickly rising in each District. She must also find a way to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) from certain doom as he's been captured and is being held in the Capital. »

Paging Lisa Vanderpump—it looks like Jennifer Lawrence has a suggestion for you. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and restaurateur's famous spin-off Bravo series Vanderpump Rules is reality TV gold, from the catfights to the love triangles to the how-is-everyone-so-hot cast who work as servers at Sur. And while the intro is also catchy (you'll find yourself humming that damn tune for days), J.Law thinks it could be improved. Yes, J.Law. Jennifer Lawrence. Keep reading... The Oscar winner has even taken it upon herself and her gal-pals to offer another approach. One of Lawrence's friends posted a hilarious video to Instagram of the group creating their own intro for the show with »
"I do love my Real Housewives," Jennifer Lawrence once told Vanity Fair. "New York Housewives — and Beverly Hills, New Jersey, and Atlanta Housewives. I mean, I love them all, but Miami — oh, my God! Miami is really special." And boy, did she mean it. Enough to visit the Lisa Vanderpump–owned restaurant Pump with her BFFs and re-create the opening sequence to Housewives spinoff Vanderpump Rules:Pretty spot-on. Here's the actual Vanderpump Rules intro: And, duh, she met Giggy. »
