Lionsgate has released the first teaser trailer for the first half of the conclusion to the Hunger Games series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, directed by Francis Lawrence. Since the teaser trailer is only a minute, Lionsgate has wisely chosen to let the visuals and minimal dialogue set the stage at the battle to come. I especially enjoyed seeing Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and Alma Coin (Julianne Moore) discussing Katniss’ purpose in the rebellion. Plutarch insists, “Listen to me. No one else can do this, but her.” Coin disagrees. “She won’t be able to handle it. The games destroyed her.” Shortly after their scene we get a glimpse of Natalie Dormer as Cressida with her half shaved head as well as Liam Hemsworth looking serious as Gale. Hit the jump to check it out. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 may not have a Hall H panel, but Lionsgate certainly went all out ensuring the film still had a presence at San Diego Comic-Con this year. In conjunction with Samsung, Lionsgate set up the The Capitol Gallery at the Samsung Galaxy Experience right inside the Hard Rock Hotel’s Lounge 207. It’s a small space, but there’s a lot going on it. You can grab something to eat at Peeta’s Bakery, take a picture with the Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) holograms, a Peacekeeper and some Capitol citizens as well. There’s also t-shirt making, a quiz that tells you which District you belong in, a booth where you can etch your name into a Samsung Galaxy case and more. But that’s not even the best of it; on the second floor of the Hard Rock, there’s also »

Mo’Nique‘s commanding presence has made her a thrilling comedienne, a ferocious talk show host (not to mention an effective emcee at the Apollo), and an Academy Award-winning actress.
In the four years since she picked up an Oscar for her universally lauded work in Lee Daniels‘ Precious as a monstrous, tragic mother, she’s chosen projects selectively and spent more time with her husband and three kids. Thankfully for us, she’s returning to the big screen with Blackbird, director Patrik-Ian Polk‘s feature about a teenage boy (Julian Walker) who struggles with his sexuality, religion, and familial woes in a small Southern Baptist town. Mo’Nique plays the boy’s religious, confused mother who, along with her husband (Isaiah Washington), questions her son’s identity.
To celebrate the movie’s recent premiere at the Pan African Film Festival, we caught up with Mo’Nique to discuss her history with gay men, »

Sherlock lives! And we finally got an explanation – in fact, three explanations – as to how he did it Warning: contains spoilers
Well that was silly, wasn't it: moustaches, a game of Operation and a bomb made out of a tube train. But it was the reactions to Sherlock's death that were at the heart of the episode. In the Conan Doyle stories, Watson says, of his discovery that Sherlock is alive: "I rose to my feet, stared at him for some seconds in utter amazement, and then it appears that I must have fainted." After that they both get on with their day.
Here, you got the full spectrum of emotional responses to seeing a ghost. Lestrade gave a laddish exclamation of "you bastard!", as if Sherlock had last been seen tied to lampost on his stag do. Molly, who was meekly poking around on her Sherlock'll Fix It day of minor mystery-solving. »
