If the end of the Twilight franchise doesn’t bring tears to your eyes, might we suggest checking out Elle Fanning‘s platform sandals at tonight’s Breaking Dawn – Part 2 premiere red carpet? What. Are. Those. Monstrosities. Elle seems to be totally thrilled with her kicks, but they scream Spice Girls knock-offs to us. Fivel Stewart also went bold tonight, pairing a dark lip with a wispy First Communion lampshade dress of some kind. If Fivel wanted us to speculate whether she’s pregnant, mission accomplished! We’re assuming it’s just the dress though!
Actress Judi Shekoni didn’t far much better with her odd bi-level frock, and Alexandra Patsavas opted for a look that was more Hey Arnold! than high fashion. Obviously there were plenty of stunners on tonight’s black carpet, but unfortunately there were just as many near misses. If only Nikki Reed‘s gown didn »

It's time to get reaped, citizens of Panem—over and over and over again (shout-out to Effie Trinket!). Because the odds are ever in your favor and it is finally time for The Hunger Games to arrive on DVD. To celebrate Katniss and company ditching the Capitol for the comfort of every fan's home, we chatted with two standout tributes from the first film of the H.G. saga. And Amandla Stenberg (Rue) and Jacqueline Emerson (Foxface) happily spilled some behind-the-scenes secrets to keep in mind on your second (or third, or fourth viewing). 1. Katniss the Sloppy Smoocher? So says Jackie and Amandla! We asked the gals if there was anything to watch for this go-round—you know, those real specific »
Rafe Spall has joined the cast of Son of the South. The Prometheus actor has been cast in the lead role of the American civil rights drama, which is executive produced by Spike Lee. Barry Alexander Brown will direct the project based on a script adapted from Bob Zellner's autobiography The Wrong Side of Murder Creek, Variety reports. Spall will play Zellner in the film, while The Hunger Games's Jacqueline Emerson will portray his fiancée. Saskia Reeves, (more) »

It’s probably fair to say by now that Rafe Spall is a bit of a rising star. The son of Timothy Spall excelled in early roles in Edgar Wright’s “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz,” while in the last twelve months he’s done his very best to steal the show through lightly comic roles in “One Day,” “Anonymous” and “Prometheus.” After being cast as a romantic lead in Dan Mazer’s newlywed comedy "I Give It A Year" opposite Rose Byrne and Anna Faris earlier this year, it appeared that the range of roles Spall was attracting was beginning to significantly broaden. That trend seems to be continuing with Spall set to lead the Spike Lee produced indie drama “Son Of The South.”
Barry Alexander Brown (a frequent editor of Lee’s) will direct the picture based on the autobiography of Bob Zellner, “The Wrong Side of Murder. »

Long-time Spike Lee editor Barry Alexander Brown (he cut 13 of Spike's films) will reportedly be getting behind the camera and into the director's chair (although not the first time) to direct an indie feature titled Son Of The South, which Spike Lee will executive produce. The film's cast is already set: Rafe Spall and Jacqueline Emerson are attached to star in a project that's based on Bob Zellner's autobiography The Wrong Side of Murder Creek, which centers on the author's life in Alabama, the son of a minister and grandson of a Kkk member, only to later join the Civil Rights Movement. Spall will play Zellner, while Emerson will play his fiancee, »

Rafe Spall‘s done solid, reliable character work for years now, becoming a recognizable faces (if not name) via Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Anonymous, and, most recently, Prometheus. With his days as a foolhardy biologist now all but behind him — and with that, realistically, being one of the more prominent roles of his entire onscreen career — it might be time for him to take the spotlight.
Variety reports that Spall will headline Son of the South, a real-life drama that Barry Alexander Brown will helm for his frequent collaborator and, this time out, executive producer, Spike Lee. The story is based on The Wrong Side of Murder Creek, an autobiography by Bob Zellner; in the book, he discussed a southern upbringing that, despite both his environment and family history — such as a Kkk-indoctrinated grandfather — led him into a life of Civil Rights activism. Being a member of this movement, »

Lawrence is a hard-working gal, and this summer is no exception. She's looking down the barrel of not one but two major upcoming studio productions. So, this summer she's been spotted working out like crazy, meeting up with "Catching Fire" director Francis Lawrence for a pow-wow about the project and otherwise readying herself to reprise Katniss for movie two and return as Mystique for the sequel to "X-Men: First Class."
That said, J.Law's been slipping in some fun time here and there as well. »

Josh Hutcherson and Freida Pinto were among the celebs - and past and present Nylon cover stars - who turned out to celebrate the magazine's 13th anniversary last night in La. The celebration was held at Smashbox Studios in Hollywood. Freida arrived in a Prada dress before settling into the VIP section with her friends and her talent agent. Josh, sporting a fedora and sunglasses despite the late hour, arrived with a friend a while after, and was one of several actors from The Hunger Games at the bash. Dayo Okeniyi, Jacqueline Emerson, and Alexander Ludwig were also at the soiree, and the costars stopped to pose for several photos together during the festivities. The Hunger Games' stars are still riding high on their movie's continued streak of success at the box office. Last weekend, it even beat out the 3D relaunch of Titanic both here and in the »

We get that the Kids’ Choice Awards is a casual event, but this year the red carpet was a bit disappointing. Luckily, a couple of ladies cut the mustard and salvaged the situation. Leading the pack was our favorite Kristen Stewart who picked her favorite — a mini dress. What was unusual was the color. She picked a cobalt blue Stella McCartney with lace overlay with matching pumps. Emma Stone looked adorable and quite sedate in a pinkish-beige Antonio Berardi pleated frock. We were also quite floored by Sarah Hyland‘s flowing red maxi by Myne. That long center-parted haired hair was the perfect choice to go with it.
Selena Gomez‘s Dolce & Gabanna may be a controversial decision here, considering it’s pretty much a bustier and tiny, printed skirt. But fashion is all about selling it, right? And she’s looking so happy and confident in the outfit, that it’s pretty much sold. »

Faithful as it was to the source material, "The Hunger Games" still had more than its fair share of on-screen surprises.
The movie hit all the major notes we anticipated, of course, and almost all of our predictions of bits cut from the film (Madge, Avoxes) proved true.
Even so, the following eight moments had our jaws on the floor.
Do be warned: this list is full of delicious spoilers, so if you haven't seen the movie yet, you may want to bookmark this column for later.
Foxface and Katniss Bump into Each Other
We weren't expecting Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the sneaky Foxface (Jacqueline Emerson) to become, um, acquainted so early in the Games … but we really did like watching the two jointly opt for the flight (as opposed to fight) strategy to survival after colliding into one another. It definitely set them apart from the viciousness underway back at the Cornucopia. »

Isabelle Fuhrman had small TV and film parts, until she brother out with “Orphan” in 2009, and has worked steadily since. Jacqueline Emerson is the rookie, as “The Hunger Games” is her first film role, but had done stage work beforehand and toured with “Dev2.o,” a Walt Disney sponsored rock band.

When you head to the theaters this weekend to see our girl Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) compete in "The Hunger Games," keep in mind there's another battle brewing. The battle for Miss Everdeen's heart, that is.
On one side is Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), who's been Katniss' tall, dark and handsome confidant and hunting partner ever since they both lost their fathers in a mining accident. For years, Gale has had the exclusive on Katniss' trust and attention thanks to their mutual need to provide for their younger siblings.
Then comes Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), her fellow tribute from District 12, who makes a startling confession about his life-long affection for Katniss, sending her into a mild tizzy and changing the nature of the Games altogether. Once upon a time, Peeta – whom she only knew as the baker's son — gave her some much-needed bread in a time of deep desperation. In fact, »
