Watch: Honest Trailer For 'Divergent' Which Is Basically 'The Hunger Games' Without The Games

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, with "Divergent" now on its way to Ya franchise ubiquity, maybe it's time to acknowledge that like "The Hunger Games" and "Twilight" before it, the story is working from a very well established template. But don't take our word for it, as Screen Junkies is here with an Honest Trailer to highlight how this one is like the others. Calling the Shailene Woodley starrer "The Hunger Games" but without the games, the trailer amusingly dips into the overly complicated future world the movie takes place in. We're not sure why all these dystopian futures require a vast set of rules to keep their population under control (or what the point is), but it can get convoluted and silly at the same time. Anyway, there's star-crossed romance, a conspiracy and all the usual markers of the genre in "Divergent" — which you've seen before in other Ya movies both successful or »

Peeta and Johanna featured in new 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' images

3 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The new issue of Capitol Couture has been made available by the Capitol Ministries of Information and it features Johanna Mason and Peeta Mellark.  Or, put another way, we have new images from "The Hunger Games" franchise. One has to admire the utter commitment with which the publicity department is proceeding in promoting the upcoming "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1."  They seem to revel in creating the various bits of misinformation which the Capitol puts forth. Today specifically, we have two "Capitol Citizen Living Portraits" which you can see below.  The first is of Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) and the second is of Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson).  Essentially, the characters just spin around so we can check out their great duds, but the Capitol has also provided flavorful write-ups of the outfits worn by both Johanna and Peeta.  To give you a small taste, the discussion of Johanna's outfit in part states, »

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Capitol Couture viral website for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is continuing is campaign of propaganda, honoring Quarter Quell victors Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) with "living portraits," i.e. motion posters. This comes just a few weeks after their official portrait with President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Take a look at these living portraits below, along with The Capitol's official statement.

"The Capitol has outdone itself once again. Still basking in the stoic radiance that was last year's stunning Capitol Portraits, we here at Capitol Couture have nevertheless been waiting eagerly for the next wave of incredible images of our cherished elite. Fresh from the excitement of the most eventful Quarter Quell to date, we are thrilled and honored to present the new Capitol Citizen Living Portraits.

Honest Trailers Is Super Confused About 'Divergent'

3 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You can only make parody trailers for so long before the same themes start popping up. After all, storytelling has been based on the same two stories since time immemorial: either a person goes on a journey or there’s a knock at the door. That’s it. But the trick is supposed to be how many variations humans can spin. Which is why the Honest Trailers narrator is really confused by ‘Divergent’. Ironically it barely diverges from ‘The Hunger Games’ which barely diverges from ‘Battle Royale’. So basically, this is the ‘Multiplicity’ of Mary Sue post-apocalypse teen fiction.  »

Exclusive motion posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay debut online

3 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

So far, we’ve seen two short addresses from President Snow (Donald Sutherland) to the Districts of Panem. His message is simple: fall in line or suffer the consequences. We all know he’s really talking directly to Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), especially given that Snow purposely set up these addresses to show off the fact that her friends and allies Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) are perfectly content (if somewhat glum), standing shoulder to shoulder with District 1.

But what’s really going on with Peeta and Johanna? Why are they supporting Snow? The last time we saw the pair, they were abducted from the Quarter Quell arena and Katniss threw a fit when she learned that Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) and Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) directly disobeyed her explicit wishes that they save Peeta over her, if given the chance.

Peeta and Johanna’s storyline is a highlight of the Mockingjay book, »

Watch the Honest Trailer for 'Divergent', Aka Not the 'Hunger Games'

4 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This one is probably going to make Divergent fans mad as Screen Junkies has released their latest honest trailer and it takes no time pointing out the plot's similarities to The Hunger Games... "It's not like 'The Hunger Games'!" I can already hear hordes of young fans screaming. Well, like The Hunger Games or not, one thing it most definitely is is awful. As I wrote in my review: Director Neil Burger (The Illusionist, Limitless) is equally complicit, relying heavily on redundant scenes and shots of Woodley training to fight with a strange, "Whack-a-Mole" attack, not to mention some of the worst action scenes I have ever seen in a major motion picture. There's a point a character is given the chance to cry over a dead body for a solid minute before the enemy decides enough is enough and it's time to start shooting again... but only at the wall near her. »

Check Out These Cool 'Mockingjay' Capitol Citizen Living Portraits

4 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The first full trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I is debuting at Comic-Con later this week (and also exclusively on Samsung devices), but the viral campaign has been awesome with President Snow (Donald Sutherland) addressing the revolution and being interrupted by the rebels in District 13. Accompanying Snow was Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and now the two are featured in a couple Capitol Citizen Living Portraits from Capitol Couture. It's pretty creepy how they're just flaunting their prisoners like this, essentially taunting the revolution in Panem. Look now! Here are the two living portraits for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I from Capitol Couture: The Capitol has outdone itself once again.  Still basking in the stoic radiance that was last year’s stunning Capitol Portraits, we here at Capitol Couture have nevertheless been waiting eagerly for the next wave »

“I have a newfound respect for anybody who makes a movie” – Wes Ball on The Maze Runner

21 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Debut filmmaker Wes Ball admits he has a newfound respect for anybody who makes a movie, given the challenges he faced when putting The Maze Runner together.

The film, which is set for an October 10 release in the UK, is based on the popular, post-apocalyptic novels by James Dashner, and features the likes of Dylan O’Brien and Will Poulter, and hopes to emulate the likes of Divergent and The Hunger Games, as fellow young adult fiction novels brought to life on the big screen.

“I tell you one thing,” Ball told HeyUGuys, “I have a newfound respect for anybody who makes a movie that makes it up on screen. Because it is so hard. There are so many things that are against you, so many challenges that are out of your control. It’s crazy. I’m not so hard on movies any more because I know how difficult it really is. »

David Hayter Talks About His Old Black Widow Script

19 July 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

These days, David Hayter is probably best known as the voice of Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid video game franchise.  But Hayter also has a solid background as a traditional actor, screenwriter and director.  In fact, Hayter wrote a script for a solo Black Widow movie for Marvel Studios a long time ago, however, a few misfires in the genre has left the script sitting on the shelf for roughly 10 years.  Now, with properties like The Hunger Games, Divergent and others leading the movement for more female action movies, is the time right for a solo outing for the lone female member of The Avengers? On his script, Hayter told Latino Review, “For ‘Black Widow,’ I wrote [a script] ten years ago and I was attached to direct it then. Then a few female action movies came out and they didn’t do very well. And the movie got shelved. »

Mockingjay: Part 1 trailer to premiere during Comic-Con

18 July 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

We had a feeling that President’s Snow’s two addresses to the Panem masses were building up to the Big reveal. 

That’s right- the first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1 is coming our way in a matter of days!  It has been revealed that the trailer will have its world premiered at an off-site location during Comic-Con on Friday, July 25th. In a cross-marketing stunt, the trailer will debut on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S in the Capitol Gallery which is located within the Samsung Galaxy Experience at the Hard Rock Hotel (5th and L Streets for those on the ground in San Diego).

While there is no official panel for Mockingjay- Part 1 at Comic-Con, the trailer announcement says that cast members of the film will be on hand for the reveal, though no confirmation on which of our favourite District residents will appear. 

As part of this marketing stunt, »

Second Opinion – Snowpiercer (2013)

18 July 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Snowpiercer, 2013.

Directed by Joon-ho Bong

Starring Chris Evans, Kang-ho Song, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie, Bell, Ed Harris and Octavia Spencer.

Synopsis:

Set in a future where a failed climate-change experiment kills all life on the planet except for a lucky few who boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, where a class system emerges.

Critics spend a lot of time dissecting what is going right (or more likely) wrong with a particular genre. As if there is some magic formula to filmmaking that anyone could adhere to and create something magical. Movies can’t be constructed like an erector set or drafted from a blueprint and built. Movies work or don’t work because of a number of factors and in this day and age where computers can generate fantastic worlds and impossible images it’s very rarely technical reasons that a summer action film does or doesn’t work. »
