The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2: Katniss and Boggs Prepare for Battle

9 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate has released a new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 image. The saga concludes with Katniss (Jennifer Lawerence) and a unit from District 13 going on a mission to the Capitol to assassinate President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and end the war that has engulfed Panem. I haven’t read the books in years, so I can’t recall what this still might be from, but at the very least, it’s safe to expect that this could be the most action-packed Hunger Games movie at least as far as the stakes are concerned. There may not be an arena, but I’m curious to see how much director Francis Lawrence shows the war surrounding the covert mission. The resistance scenes in Mockingjay – Part 1 were terrific, and I look forward to seeing how he expands on them for the finale. Check out the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 image below. »

Katniss Preps in New 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2' Picture

4 July 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Of the three "Hunger Games" books, "Mockingjay" was my favorite. This is partly due to the excellent way Suzanne Collins established the story in the first book and really hammered it home with true drama in the final moments, which is why I'm expecting a lot from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and I'm really excited for the finale. I want to see how they handle it as well as the response from audiences that don't know what's to come. That said, along with the new picture above, Entertainment Weekly spoke with director Francis Lawrence who said, "There is some serious girl power in this movie... Suzanne Collins wrote it that way, and it's been so much fun to inhabit." "It's probably the most emotional of the bunch," Lawrence added. "And I think it's the most ?satisfying of the bunch." From a book perspective, yes, we will see »

Is 'Star Wars: Rogue One' Already Shooting?

3 July 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We've known for quite some time that Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will be shot at London's Pinewood Studios this summer, but a production start date has never been confirmed. Two separate reports have surfaced this week claiming that shooting is already under way, with star Felicity Jones filming her first scene. Making Star Wars reports that several trees have been brought into the studio for a scene involving a ship's landing in the jungle. But not all of these landing scenes will be shot at Pinewood. There has also been some second unit shooting done with a number of ships including Star Destroyers, along with "some stuff" that looks like it could be the Death Star, but that has yet to be confirmed.

A separate report from earlier this week claims that shooting on Rogue One has been under way for the past three weeks, while confirming that jungle scenes are currently being shot. »

Director Francis Lawrence has also spoken of the empowering nature of the film series, which he says is down to Suzanne Collins' source novels: "There is some serious girl power in this movie. She wrote it that way, and it's been so much fun to inhabit."

He added that we can expect more violence as the Rebellion truly takes hold, with multiple casualties expected: "It's probably the most emotional of the bunch. And I »

New Image From The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 Finds Effie And Katniss United

2 July 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens also on the calendar and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice hogging the media spotlight, it’s been shockingly easy to forget that another major franchise event is headed our way this year in the final Hunger Games installment. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 will bring the tale of Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen to a fiery conclusion as she takes the fight for Panem’s future to the dastardly President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

Amid all the explosions, however, the finale also heightens the emotional stakes, and a new photo from the pic (premiered by EW) highlights a strengthening bond between Katniss and Elizabeth Banks’ Effie Trinket.

“There is some serious girl power in this movie,” director Francis Lawrence (no relation to his star) told EW, crediting book author Suzanne Collins. “She wrote it that way, and it’s been so much fun to inhabit. »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: First 'Pirates of the Caribbean' One of Most Enjoyable Summer Blockbusters of Early 21st Century

29 June 2015 4:13 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl': Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow. 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' review: Mostly an enjoyable romp (Oscar Movie Series) Pirate movies were a Hollywood staple for about three decades, from the mid-'20s (The Sea Hawk, The Black Pirate) to the mid-to-late '50s (Moonfleet, The Buccaneer), when the genre, by then mostly relegated to B films, began to die down. Sporadic resurrections in the '80s and '90s turned out to be critical and commercial bombs (Pirates, Cutthroat Island), something that didn't bode well for the Walt Disney Company's $140 million-budgeted film "adaptation" of one of their theme-park rides. But Neptune's mood has apparently improved with the arrival of the new century. He smiled – grinned would be a more appropriate word – on the Gore Verbinski-directed Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, »

Ben Mendelsohn has yet to officially sign on the dotted line for a role in Star Wars: Rogue One, despite long-running talks he is set to star.

Forrest Whitaker Joins Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One

15 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will no doubt be selling out cinema screen all over the world this December, but lest we forget more Star Wars are coming our way in the coming years, and next year’s first spin-off, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, has been bringing it’s cast together for the last few months. Now, Variety are reporting that Forrest Whitaker will be travelling to a galaxy far, far away, joining other cast members Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler), Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman), and Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises). We know pretty much nothing about the movie, other than the fact the events of the movie will chronicle the efforts of a group of resistance fighters to steal the original Death Star plans, so his role is unknown to us at this time.

Star Wars: Rogue One - Forest Whitaker joins the cast

15 June 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Forest Whitaker is reportedly in talks to join Gareth Edwards' Star Wars Anthology movie, Rogue One...

The ensemble cast for Rogue One has shaped up rather nicely over the past few months, with Riz Ahmed and Sam Claflin joining Felicity Jones and Ben Mendelsohn, while Diego Luna was added to the line-up in May.

According to a report over at Variety, we can now add another familiar name to the list: the Academy Award-winning Forest Whitaker. Whitaker is, of course, the star of such movies as The Last King Of Scotland (the film that won him an Oscar for his portrayal of the notorious dictator Idi Amin), The Butler, Ghost Dog and, going further back, things like The Crying Game and Platoon. He was also in Battlefield Earth, but he'd probably prefer it if we didn't mention that.

Star Wars: Rogue One Using Cinema’s Hottest Digital Camera

12 June 2015 7:59 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

J.J. Abrams shot Star Wars: The Force Awakens on 35mm film and yesterday news broke that Rian Johnson will do the same for Star Wars: Episode VIII, but apparently Gareth Edwards is going in a different direction with his anthology film, Star Wars: Rogue One. According to THR, parts of Rogue One will be shot with a large-format, 6K resolution model of Arri's Alexa 65. As described on the Arri website, it’s “a complete large-format solution for high-end theatrical motion pictures.” It’s “a scaled-up version of an Alexa Xt, able to capture an uncompressed Arriraw 65 mm image of stunning intensity and definition.” The moment the camera debuted back in December, cinematographers were clamoring to get their hands on it. Robert Elswit used it for an underwater sequence in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, Stuart Dryburgh might shoot all of Yimou Zhang’s The Great Wall with it »

Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin have been shooting all week in Majorca, Spain, and on Thursday, Emilia showed more of her gorgeous bikini body! Fans have already gotten excited about the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Game of Thrones cast crossover for the film adaptation of Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, and previous photos from the set showed Sam and Emilia shooting scenes together.
