It's all coming to an end...at least until Lionsgate figures out a way to keep the brand going. But it's probably safe to say that wherever "The Hunger Games" goes after "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2," this will be Jennifer Lawrence's last time fighting to save the dystopian world of Panem. It's a poignant time for the actress who has seen the franchise grow in parallel with her own career, and the movie will finish up with a scene that the actress has been dreaming of since she signed up to play Katniss..

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale [Liam Hemsworth], Finnick [Sam Claflin] and Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, »
Lionsgate has released what is likely the final trailer for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2". Set mostly to drumbeats, there's some astonishing action visuals on display here as Katniss leads the rebellion against President Snow and the privileged elite of the Capital.
There's looks at Gwendoline Christie's character, eyeless sewer mutants of some kind, several deaths and more. The film itself opens November 20th.

Jennifer Lawrence is the complete package. She is beautiful, talented, hilarious, surprising and most importantly, awesome.
For someone with such an impressive career in a relatively finite period of time – earning numerous awards and accolades, starring in endless global phenomenons – she has always remained entirely down-to-earth and human; never once letting the bravado of super-stardom alter her personality.
The 25 year-old star of The Hunger Games franchise has found a special place in all of our hearts, but what if you held a special place in hers? With all the crazy-cool things she gets up to and the tireless glee that seems to ooze from her, everyone would surely want a piece of the action.
So what if you were her Bff? Imagine rolling with the greatest chick in the film industry and all the antics that would follow suit? Read up, take note and form an orderly (well, maybe disorderly) queue… »

Following on from the first red band trailer [watch it here], a poster has arrived online for the crime thriller Triple 9…
In Triple Nine, a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist and the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for “officer down.” Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck action-packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.
Triple 9 is set for release in the Us on February 19th, 2016 and is directed by John Hillcoat (The Road) with a cast that includes Casey Affleck (Interstellar), Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Gal Gadot (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs »

The 25-year-old hopeful from North West London performed on stage last, concerning judge Simon Cowell when she admitted to feeling a bit fuzzy, before mentor Rita Ora eventually swapped her with a distraught Lucy Duffield.
Speaking to Digital Spy about the "killer" experience, she revealed: "It was just so brutal. It was literally The Hunger Games.
"I never in my life want to see six white chairs again. Ever. It was just killer. It's so, so intense. I thought at one point I was going to be sick. I really did. I knew because I had a bit of a dip at Boot Camp, I knew if I didn't bring it at Six Chairs I'd be going home."

Kicking things off with Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Kathleen Kennedy has been talking about the movie’s themes and how the Skywalker family play into everything. It had been rumoured that this new trilogy would focus on the offspring of Luke and Leia (not together you weirdos!), but we still don’t know the full story despite being less than 3 months away from the release of the movie. But we do know that the lineage will play a role. “The Saga films focus on the Skywalker family saga,” Kennedy said. “The stories follow a linear narrative that connects to the previous six films. The Force Awakens follows Return of the Jedi and continues that generational story… »

Goleta, Calif. — Two-time Oscar winning actress Jane Fonda kept the focus on social concerns in accepting a career achievement honor presented by the Santa Barbara International Film Festival Saturday night.
The 10th annual Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film in hand, Fonda took a moment to recognize the programs that benefit from the annual fundraising dinner (which has honored luminaries such as Jessica Lange, Forest Whitaker, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas and Harrison Ford in recent years). She recalled formerly running a local performing arts camp herself for underprivileged children. It was there she said she discovered the impact art can have on youth, when one of the children there confessed she had never met people who think about the future. “When you’re poor or not loved, you see no future,” Fonda recalled understanding.
She also added with a twist that the camp was powered by alternative energies. »

It’s hard to believe that the Hunger Games series is already coming to an end. Ever since Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) volunteered as tribute on behalf of her sister Primrose, she has gone head-first into a war against the tyrannical Capitol. In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Katniss has her final confrontation with President Snow (Donald Sutherland), as she fights for the revolution in Panem.
The Hunger Games as a franchise started a revolution of it’s own, as it was the book series that started the insanely popular trend of dystopian narratives that featured teenagers fighting wars in favour of morality and freedom. Not only that, but it essentially launched the career of Jennifer Lawrence, who is now not just an Oscar winner (she won Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook), but who also is highly regarded as one of the best young actresses of her generation, »

"The Hunger Games" champ Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) may be the best warrior in Panem, but she's too important to the cause to be put on the front line. That's what she -- and Finnick (Sam Claflin) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth) -- are told in this first clip from "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2."
In the nearly 2-minute scene, we see Finnick cut his honeymoon short to enter a tent where the rebels share the plans for their attack. Boggs (Mahershala Ali) and Cressida (Natalie Dormer) are in charge, and tell our heroes they're the faces of the revolution and cannot be risked in combat. They'll be following days behind the real fighters. "You're to be the on-screen faces of the invasion," Cressida explains. "The star squad. It's been decided that you're most effective when you're seen by the masses." That's not to say they won't face danger. »

Tensions are running high in Panem. The first clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 was released Thursday to celebrate the beginning of advance ticket sales at Fandango, and in it, Finnick (Sam Claflin) joins Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth) just before Boggs (Mahershala Ali) and Cressida (Natalie Dormer) detail their plan to storm The Capitol. "Squad 451, you're my unit. Lt. Jackson is my second in command. Each one of you is elite in some form of combat, but we are a non-combat unit," Boggs tells them. "So, we'll be following days behind the frontline troops." Katniss says nothing, but her expression says everything. "You're to be the »

"If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world," said Lawrence.
"I'll back you up on that," added Hemsworth.
"I genuinely believe that reality television has reached the ultimate place where now even things like this might just be for entertainment," said Lawrence. "It's either that or it's Hillary [Clinton]'s brilliant idea."
"I was watching [Trump] on the campaign trail," she continued. "And one guy said, 'I love Donald Trump because he's saying everything I'm thinking and I just can't say it because of the PC factor.'
"And I'm thinking, 'You are absolutely right. That's who I want representing my country, »
