There was a time when movie sequels were simply given titles that sounded good on their own, without studios having to club audiences over the head with the fact the movie was part of a franchise.
From Russia With Love didn’t need to say that it was the sequel to Dr. No because it was obvious from the rest of the marketing and the book it was based on that it was another James Bond adventure. If the Bond series had begun just now then it would, like Jacks Ryan and Reacher, have cumbersome titles like James Bond: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Even book series that are quite happy to give separate titles to their separate parts gain extra title elements on their progress to film. The simple and to the point Mockingjay is now The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, in spite of »

New posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 have been revealed.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 recently premiered a new trailer.
Jennifer Lawrence will return to lead the cast of the two-part adaptation of Suzanne Collins's novel, with Part 1 opening on November 21 this year and Part 2 scheduled for release on November 20, 2015.
The promotional campaign for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1″ is in full swing ahead of the film’s Nov. 21 release, and Lionsgate has released six “Rebel Warriors” posters, showcasing some of District 13’s rebels in the fight against President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and the Capitol.
Characters featured in the new posters include Liam Hemsworth’s Gale, Katniss’ (Jennifer Lawrence) best friend and one third of the franchise’s love triangle; Boggs (Mahershala Ali) who serves as Katniss’ protector in her new role as the uprising’s “Mockingjay”; Cressida (“Game of Thrones” star Natalie Dormer), a propaganda filmmaker who works with Katniss to undermine the Capitol; her assistant, Messalla (Evan Ross); and brothers Castor (Wes Chatham) and Pollux (Elden Henson), Cressida’s cameramen.

In addition to giving fans a glimpse at a solemn-looking, crossbow-wielding Gale, the newest posters from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 introduce a whole bunch of unfamiliar faces, including Natalie Dormer’s Cressida and her vine head tattoo. Though Dormer did keep some of her hair in contrast to book Cressida, she told EW back in January: “I’m actually really pleased that we went halfway because I think it’s more the Capitol… and that’s where Cressida comes from.”
While an earlier set of posters were stark, showing characters like Effie and Haymitch against the backdrop of District 13, »

The rebellion has arrived in these brand new posts for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1. This is one badass crew you don’t want to cross paths with.
Armed and ready to send a pretty strong message to President Snow (Donald Sutherland), the rebel alliance features a bunch of new faces from the Districts. Character posters give us a look at Boggs (Mahershala Ali), Castor (Wes Chatham), Pollux (Eden Henson), Messalla (Evan Ross), Gale (Liam Hemsworth), and last but not least, the kick-ass Cressida played by “Game of Thrones” star Natalie Dormer.
Directed by Francis Lawrence, Part 1 sees Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) adopted as the symbol of the rebellion against the Capitol. We got our first look at the teaser trailer at Comic-Con which showed us a world under siege.

Deadline is reporting that The Devil Wears Prada director David Frankel will helm Departure for Good Universe. The sci-fi romance has a Billy Ray-penned script and tells the story of a “brilliant 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.”
The film, though not a true story, is inspired by one. Or several, actually, as it takes its cues from the novel Ghosts of the Air, which “contains real accounts from pilots who have been through such strange anomalies” as the one described above. So ya, apparently this kind of thing actually happens.
While I’ve never cared much for any of Frankel’s work, »

With only a few months left to go before fans of the Hunger Games series get to see the first Mockingjay film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, some new posters have arrived which show off the rebels from District 13. The posters have the Mockingjay symbol, but are far darker than the flaming sign to which fans have become accustomed.
Though there are plenty of new characters here, there is one face you will certainly recognise: that of Gale, played by Liam Hemsworth. Others are of Cressida (Natalie Dormer), Messalla (Evan Ross), Boggs (Mahershala Ali), Castor (Wes Chatham) and Pollux (Elden Henson).
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 returns to cinemas on 21st November and marks the return of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. This is the first of two concluding films, based on the third book in the trilogy written by Suzanne Collins.

If rebellion lingered in the air after the first Hunger Games film two years ago, it became a way of life after the catastrophic cliffhanger of 2013′s Catching Fire; cut to now and it’s open revolt, though to date the promotional materials Lionsgate has released for the third film in the franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, have employed subtler tactics than brute force. The Capitol favors indoctrination, seen in the spate of celebratory posters honoring Panem’s compartmentalized Districts, as well as viral clips lionizing President Snow.
But the rebel contingent hasn’t been silent: they’ve fired back by butting into Snow’s calmly unsettling addresses, while director Francis ...

The residents of District 13 seem to have a thing for grey, but the warriors of District 13 are all about the color black. All the better to look badass, I guess.

The marketing campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is fashioned as a propaganda battle between those stylish, ruling-class despots from The Capitol and the scrappy rebels of the various outlying Districts ready to throw off the diamond-encrusted yoke of dictatorship. New posters for District 13 popped up earlier this month, and now there are some new, militaristic images from the rebels online. Once again, they don’t feature either Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss or Josh Hutcherson’s captured Peeta Mellark, but we do see Natalie Dormer’s Cressida, Liam Hemsworth’s Gale, Elder Henson’s Pollux, Wes Chatham’s Castor, Mahershala Ali’s Boggs and Evan Ross’ Messalla.Directed by Francis Lawrence and adapted by Danny Strong from Suzanne Collins' third novel, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 make up the third and fourth installments of heroine Katniss Everdeen’s journey to overthrow the Capitol and its smug, »
The marketing campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has done a fabulous job at both teasing the new dynamic and tone of the upcoming penultimate installment, while giving everything a propaganda-like spin. We’ve seen some eerily creepy messages from Panem President Snow, and an intriguing teaser showing off the broken but war-ready District 13 that perfectly play like a message war between Katniss’ allies and The Capital.
The next step in the marketing plan kicks things up a notch with a series of “Rebel Warriors” character posters, that show off new and familiar faces geared up for war. There’s Katniss’ longtime friend Gale (Liam Hemsworth), the deadly-looking Cressida (Game of Thrones‘ Natalie Dormer), her assistant Messalla (Jeff, Who Lives at Home), Katniss’ bodyguard Boggs (House of Cards alum Mahershala Ali), and brothers Castor and Pollux (The Help‘s Wes Chatham and Daredevil‘s Elden Henson, respectively »

Liam Hemsworth's Gale is the only cast member featured in these posters to have starred in The Hunger Games and last year's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, who has joined the Resistance to fight against the Capitol.

Following a couple of teaser trailers and a number of posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the latest batch of character art for the movie puts the spotlight squarely on the warriors who will be fighting as part of the revolution against the Capitol in the franchise’s penultimate chapter.
This group definitely have a very different aesthetic to those we’ve seen from District 13, and while Liam Hemsworth doesn’t look too different as the returning Gale, we do get our first look at those who will join him.
That list includes Cressida (Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer), Messalla (Evan Ross), Boggs (Mahershala Ali), Castor (Wes Chatham) and Pollux (Elden Henson). They all look pretty good, and go some way in giving us an idea of the darker tone that the final two movies from Francis Lawrence will have.

For some reason I keep forgetting that there’s a new Hunger Games movie coming this year. Catching Fire surprised the hell out of me and was my favorite studio tentpole of last year, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how Francis Lawrence tackles the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy (well the first half of the final book, technically). A peek into what’s in store has surfaced today by way of a new collection of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 posters that introduce the leaders of the rebellion. There’s Liam Hemsworth’s Gale, of course, but I’m really excited to see Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer’s portrayal of Cressida; Dormer’s look for the character is positively fantastic. And yes, that’s Elden Henson aka Fulton from The Mighty Ducks as Pollux. Hit the jump to take a look »

Check out the resistance fighters of Francis Lawrence’s upcoming “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1,” the first of the final two-parter that will wrap up Lionsgate’s money making machine, aka futuristic movie series “The Hunger Games.” I like the posters, but it does bring up the strangest part about the series to me, which is the technology. They have crazy stuff like invisible ships and giant Vr domed arenas and crazy advanced holograms, but everyone is still just armed with regular ol bullet shootin’ guns? I mean, huh? Then again, considering that the book series by Suzanne Collins is woefully short on explaining the world’s tech (which is to say, she never does), I guess the filmmakers are just making it up as they go. Anyhoo. Here’s Liam Hemsworth and a bunch of other dudes, including the “Game of Thrones” chick (nice haircut) looking all badass and ready for war. »
