20 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

On Wednesday, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 opened advance ticket sales and has already broken a 2014 record. According to a Fandango press release, Mockingjay sold more first-day advance tickets than any other 2014 film, passing the previous record-holder, Divergent. In its first day, Mockingjay accounted for 80 percent of Fandango's daily ticket sales. Over on Movietickets.com, the trend continued, with Mockingjay exceeding the first day advance sales of any other 2014 film, including Guardians of the Galaxy. Mockingjay also doubled the number of tickets sold on the first day of presales for Catching Fire last year.

Roman Polanski Evades Arrest in Poland as U.S. Renews Chase

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Roman Polanski has evaded a fresh bid by U.S. authorities to have him arrested with a view to extraditing him.

U.S. officials requested that the Polish government seize the director as he visited Poland to attend the opening of a Jewish museum in Warsaw. Polanski was questioned by prosecutors in Krakow today.

Roman Polanski said he would comply with all requests made by prosecutors in this case and provided his address,” Poland’s justice ministry spokesman Mateusz Martyniuk told Afp.

“Prosecutors therefore decided not to arrest him in connection with a possible U.S. extradition request.”

Martyniuk said Polanski’s extradition to the U.S. was still possible, but as the U.S. had yet to make an extradition request Polanski “is a free citizen and is free to travel.”

Polanski pleaded guilty to having sex with 13-year-old Samantha Geimer in the U.S. in 1977, but left the country in 1978 before sentencing. »

Recap: 'The Vampire Diaries' - 'The World Has Turned and Left Me Here'

55 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

“The moral of the story is, don’t fall in love with your brother’s girl.” Damn it Kai. Of course you had to go and do … that. Let’s get our witchy woo together and sink our teeth right into Thursday night’s “The Vampire Diaries,” shall well? Any fan of the show probably pieced together that “The World Has Turned and Left Me Here” was going to be the episode that finally reunited broke at least one of our characters free from the purgatory they’ve been living in. Watching Damon whistle and skip through the forest with Bonnie was probably one of the cuter moments of all time, as he talked about seeing his girl and not being able to wait to just skip the “dinner and movie” part. Little does he know that he’s coming back to a gal that sort of really hates him now, »
