"I never wanted any of this," Katniss says in the new trailer for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1.” "I never wanted to be in the games. I just wanted to save my sister and keep Peeta alive." Sorry sister, life just got tougher. There’s a newfound angst found in Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) in the third 'Hunger Games' film, as she becomes a reluctant rebel leader to the people outside the Capitol. Her mission in this film will be rescuing Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) who was captured by President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and his oppressive regime during ‘Catching Fire' and is now being exploited via propaganda. Here’s the official synopsis: The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. »

The Maze Runner will finally hit theaters this Friday, September 19th.
Published in October 2009 and based upon the first book in a bestselling series by James Dashner, the novel became a New York Times Best Seller and captured the imaginations of readers around the world. Fans have described it as a combination of Lord of the Flies, The Hunger Games, and the legendary television series Lost.
Books to film – especially young adult adaptations – are big bucks at the box office. Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga franchises have collectively grossed more than $5 billion at the worldwide box office, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the 10th highest-grossing film of all time.
Over the weekend, Variety reported:

Near the opening of the trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss points out that she didn’t set out to cause massive social disruption; she only wanted to protect her little sister from certain death at the hand’s of an oppressive regime. It’s an excellent thematic introduction to a penultimate series entry that should radically change what the franchise is all about. What she did by volunteering was intimate and fiercely personal, but it resonated in a way that opened everyone else’s eyes. When one person stands up, the question is why everyone else isn’t on their feet. Donald Sutherland’s President Snow responds with a poetic zen koan about the things we love killing us. Undoubtedly, he loves power, so we’ll see how that all works out for him. Before you watch the trailer, a fair warning: it shows how one character has significantly changed — altering »

"Look, I don't know if he's brave or stupid, but whatever it is, we need more of it," says Minho (Ki Hong Lee) of Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) in The Maze Runner, out Friday. While potential audiences may think the line can also apply to the post-apocalyptic, young-adult film adaptation at large, star Dylan O'Brien clarified that the film is distinct from the genre's recent entries, The Hunger Games and Divergent. "We don't have romance in the movie, and I love that, for the first time in one of these really cool Ya stories," he told The

So far the buildup toward The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1 has been one of our favorite movie campaigns of the year. The marketing folks have done some creepy, subtle and even subversive things with their poster-art campaign so far, and the teaser trailers have all done a restrained job of, well, teasing. But now that the movie is just over three months away, Lionsgate has decided to move away from the teasing and start showing something substantial. Fans are going to be very happy the studio did. The Hunger Games continues to be one of the most surprising blockbuster franchises around. Catching Fire really elevated the material from the first film, setting up a story of high-stakes underdog revolution that hasn't really been seen on the big screen since The...

As The Day Today’s Chris Morris might put it, “That’s it! It’s war!” The conflict between the despotic, resource-rich and couture-obsessed Capitol and the defiant Districts is coming to a violent head in the latest trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. Check it out below. Here, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has been recruited to lead the rebel forces against those of President Snow, working alongside the likes of Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), Beetee (Jeffrey Wright), Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman, in what will be one of his final performances) and President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore). Katniss has now been brought to District 13, long thought destroyed and written out of Panem history but, it emerges, a power to be reckoned with. But even as the Districts start to make progress against the Capitol’s armies, Snow delivers a nasty propaganda surprise: Peeta (Josh Hutcherson »

While we've gotten an enticing series of 'propaganda' films related to the latest Hunger Games films over the past several weeks, it isn't until today that we have the first full trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. I've been a fan of the films, partly as an archer, but also as a fan of dystopian future tales and great female leads. As with the popular current trend, the final book has been split into two films. The greatest strength of the films is the cast: with Jennifer Lawrence, Donald Sutherland, and Philip Seymour Hoffman (in one of his last roles) returning, and the addition of Julianne Moore, my expectations are pretty high. The trailer doesn't reveal too much of the story for those...

One of the most notable Hollywood trends of late is the way in which studios have gravitated towards dystopian stories situated within an all-encompassing battle arena. From The Hunger Games to the soon-to-be-released The Maze Runner, it appears as though these productions are channeling a barbaric spectatorship that harkens back to the Roman Empire and the blood-drenched days of the Colosseum.
Speaking of the core concept behind the upcoming sci-fi adventure, Andrew Iervolino, Ambi Pictures Group’s producer — the company behind the film — stated that recruiting the likes of Glover and Baldwin only elevate the production to new heights.

The 18th season of “The View” premiered on Monday morning with a new set and a new panel, but some of the best one-liners never made it on TV. At the first commercial break, Rosie O’Donnell jumped out of her seat. “The stand-up in me can’t resist a microphone and a crowd,” she said, before launching into an impromptu comedy routine.
“They put the finishing touches on the set 10 minutes before you walked in,” she told the audience. She compared the auditioning process for the new co-hosts to “The Hunger Games” (“they made people knife each other in the green room, and these are the two that won”). When asked if a fifth co-host would join the table, she mocked outrage. “This isn’t enough for you?” she asked. “Get the fuck out. The show is 37 minutes. Four is enough.”

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which has delivered us with wave after wave of posters and tiny tease videos, finally has a trailer, and it’s actually pretty cool, though perhaps not especially informative for those who haven’t read the books, and are instead just making their way through the films.
We’ve already seen some very short clips of Peeta doing publicity shots, and we get more of that, and we get to see Katniss throwing her weight around a bit, but for the most part, you’ve got to know what’s going on if you want to know what the trailer is giving you.
One question that a lot of people have going in, which the trailer doesn’t really hint at, is where exactly the first one ends. I actually thought we might get a little nugget that might help people figure this out, »

It’s no secret that the 2014 Summer Movie Season was relatively weak – at least as far as the stateside box office is concerned – with ticket sales having dropped some 22 percent from the same time frame in 2013. For many cinephiles, though, 2014 as a whole is merely the calm before the storm of “event films” and/or blockbusters due to arrive in 2015 and 2016, so the drop-off in box office isn’t a reason for concern. Similarly, what could down as the biggest movie of the year financially, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, doesn’t open in theaters for another two months.

The brand new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 1 is finally here and the film looks just as exciting and complex as we'd hoped! President Snow (Donald Sutherland) tells Katniss (Jennfer Lawrence), "Miss Everdeen, it's the things we love the most that destroy us" - whoa!! And Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) is "working for" Snow and the Capitol, but has he changed alliances? Katniss clearly doesn't think so. We also see Katniss and her longtime boyfriend Gale (Liam Hemsworth) fighting alongside each other. So what is going on? And what will go down? We will all find out on Nov. 21, when The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 hits theaters.
Oh, and considering Mockingjay - Part 1 is the most anticipated movie of the year, you might want to get tickets early - you can get them as early as Oct. 29 at Noon Est/9am Pst. In the meantime, remember, »
