Liam Hemsworth was the focus of the party while out at a Belvedere Vodka event in Cannes, France this weekend. Sources tell E! News ladies were fawning over Liam at the event, who was kept company by his manager and agent, but Liam stayed true to finacée Miley Cyrus and not "giving any ladies the time of day." The Hunger Games actor not only did right by Miles, he looked dapper doing it in a Dolce & Gabbana suit. Meanwhile, Cyrus was back in Los Angeles celebrating being crowned Maxim's number one lady on their Hot 100 List. Oh, and getting hit with another Swatting hoax. »

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever. »

With the new trailer for Mark Hartley's remake of Australian cult classic Patrick only launching yesterday, it's time for more news of the highly-specialised 'remake of Aussie exploitation movie that everyone remembers thanks to Not Quite Hollywood' variety.

Female representation in films at a five-year low: "But for a while, things were looking up. 'Bridesmaids,' a movie written by, for and about women, did well at the box office. 'The Hunger Games' had a female heroine. Disney’s 'Brave' won Oscars with a strong female protagonist. But don’t be fooled: women are still extremely underrepresented in Hollywood."

The Hunger Games screenwriter Billy Ray will direct an original sci-fi romance film that he wrote called Departure, which is based on the true story of a never-explained avionic phenomenon. Ray is a solid screenwriter who has also written films such as Breach, Shattered Glass, and the upcoming Tom Hanks film Captain Phillips. This sounds like it will make for a very interesting film.
The story was inspired by a book called "Ghosts of the Air” written by Martin Caidin, which documents real accounts from pilots who have experienced flight anomalies. The movie will follow "a brilliant Miami-based Faa investigator who is obsessed with learning how a 727 suddenly vanished into thin air and then reappeared in the exact same spot ten minutes later. As mysterious occurrences continue to occur with increasing frequency in the skies over Miami, the investigation becomes personal when the employee’s beloved wife is on one of the planes affected. »

Universal Pictures' next big sci-fi action movie, based on Ricardo de Montreuil and Antonio Perez's 2010 short film The Raven , is starting to gear up with the new announcement of a possible star. At one point, Liam Hemsworth ( The Hunger Games ) was in talks for the role but now it seems like negotiations have moved on to Scottish actor Gerard Butler, whose success with the recent action-thriller Olympus Has Fallen has made him a hot commodity in Hollywood once again. Adapted from the short by Michael Gilio and Justin Marks with plans for De Montreal to direct, the movie would have Butler playing a man with remarkable powers who is being chased by the government and the military who both want those powers working for them. The film will be produced and co-financed with »
Back in October it was reported that Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the geniuses behind "Date Movie," "Meet the Spartans," and "Vampires Suck," were developing a new movie, called "The Starving Games," that will make fun of "The Hunger Games," "The Avengers," "Sherlock Holmes" and "Harry Potter." "The Starving Games" has already been shot, which is why Friedberg and Seltzer are currently at the Cannes Film Festival attempting to pre-sell their next project, called "Super Fast!," a parody of the "Fast and Furious" franchise. Russia, Germany, Italy, the Middle East and Latin America have already bought the rights to their territories, which means that "Super Fast!" will likely happen. Check out the poster for the movie below. Poster: (click to enlarge) »
Post-apocalyptic movies and movies about young adults are both bombarding audiences these days, and when you combine the two you can get mega-hits like The Hunger Games (or lesser hits like The Host). Now Compliance director Craig Zobel is getting in on the genre, adapting the beloved young adult sci-fi novel Z for Zachariah, and its newly signed cast would make us pay attention to the project even if we were actually living through the apocalypse ourselves. Chris Pine, Amanda Seyfried and Chiwetel Ejiofor will all star in Z for Zachariah, according to The Hollywood Reporter. At one point Tobey Maguire was set to star, but he.ll just be taking on a producer role for now, through his Material Pictures production company. Everyone can now take a deep breath and remember that this is a children.s book. And while nothing at all is wrong with the source material »
Tonight’s American Idol Season 12 performance finale began with a moment of pure F/X foolery: Candice Glover and Kree Harrison standing nose-to-nose with stern-eyed, tight-lipped, prize-fighter solemnity. Were we about to witness the unleashing of body-blows and hair-pulls, or had mischievous Uncle Nigel merely patched together two individual camera shots to promote the idea of a duel to the death for Phillip Phillips’ glittering tiara and confetti shower?
Um, of course it was the latter scenario — which became all too evident when Kree and Candice took the stage hand-in-hand, like sisters in The Hunger Games headed for a lottery »

The apocalypse is terrifying at the best of times, but when the concept of oblivion hits you through young adult literature -- as the teens of today are finding out through "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," "The Knife Of Never Letting Go" et al -- it's almost guaranteed to lead to some sleepless nights. For a certain generation, that fear of radiation poisoning came from "Z For Zachariah," the 1974 novel by Robert C. O'Brien (who died before the book was completed). A stark and affecting two hander about Ann, a young woman who thinks she's the lone survivor of a nuclear war, only to discover a scientist, Loomis, alive, it's been a high-school favorite for nearly forty years, but other than a low-budget BBC adaptation, has never made it to the big screen. However, for some time now Tobey Maguire has been planning an adaptation through his Material Pictures banner, setting »
