As we roar towards the conclusion of The Hunger Games film series, the marketing team has rolled out another promotional banner for the film, this time tied to the fact that it’s five years since Suzanne Collins’ third novel Mockingjay – adapted into two movies – was published. The version above is just the smaller size to fit on to the page – check out the full, scrollable banner right here.Following on from the first Mockingjay, the second part of the story finds Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the rebels making the final push against Donald Sutherland's scheming President Snow and the Capitol, with lives on the line and sacrifices to be made. The new movie should boost the action quotient as the bigger beats are to be found lurking towards the end of the book.And this striking new image – some less-than-amazing photo-shopping aside – shows Katniss and some of her »
Our time in Panem is short. In fact, we'll be wrapping up our time with the Districts in November with a trip to The Capitol as The Hunger Games comes to a close with Mockingjay - Part 2. But, for fans who started all the way back with reading words off the pages of Suzanne Collins' novels, their long-standing devotion to Katniss Everdeen and her fight against the... Read More »

Josh Hutcherson put his buff arms on display during the Asics charity volleyball match in Long Beach, CA, on Sunday. The Hunger Games actor showed off his surprising athletic skills - including spinning the ball on his finger - as he hit the sand with Team USA stars Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross. Along with a tank top and shorts, Josh was also sporting some facial hair on the beach, a bit of a different look for the usually clean-shaven star. We last saw Josh at the Teen Choice Awards recently, where he posed for photos with Scream Queens' Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, and Keke Palmer and picked up the award for choice movie actor for his role in Mockingjay - Part 1. Josh also had a cute reunion with his costars Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth at Comic-Con in July as they promoted the final film in the Hunger Games franchise, »

Almost two months after its release, Terminator Genisys has crossed the $350 million mark at the worldwide box office, thanks to a $27.4 million opening day in China today – the fourth biggest for a Hollywood movie in that market after Furious 7, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Terminator Genisys has pulled in just $89 million domestically, but has amassed a healthy $264 million internationally and should cross $400 million globally thanks to a strong showing in China. So, we might get to see that sixth Terminator movie after all…

Ferrari: Christian Bale will star in Ferrari, a drama by director Michael Mann about Italian car magnate Enzo Ferrari. Now all that's needed is someone to pay for and distribute the movie. It's described as a longtime passion project for Mann, who is hoping to shoot the film next summer, and reunite with his Public Enemies (above) star in the lead role. The story unfolds in 1957, a fateful year when an accident involving a Ferrari vehicle, a blown tire, and multiple casualties created a scandal.

Another year, another Forbes list detailing the highest earnings in Hollywood for us to dissect. Much to the surprise of no one, it’s the franchise stalwarts toplining the actors and actresses list, with Robert Downey Jr. and The Hunger Games‘ Jennifer Lawrence occupying the top spots in each respective category.
First up, the industry’s highest-earning actresses. Unsurprisingly, Lawrence takes the crown as the biggest star in the field, with her continuing success in Lionsgate’s Ya franchise supplemented with roles in the likes of the X-Men series and David O. Russell’s Joy. In claiming the coveted number one spot, the actress pipped Marvel stalwart Scarlett Johansson and Melissa McCarthy, while China’s Bingbing Fan and Jennifer Aniston rounded out the first five places.
As Forbes’ Natalie Robehmed notes, Lawrence’s position atop the highest earners comes down to The Hunger Games, stating that “no other actress could play Katniss Everdeen, »

A couple of months ago, Lionsgate indicated they were readying an adaptation of Homer’s epic, The Odyssey, for the big-screen. Francis Lawrence (who has a good existing relationship with the studio, having directed all but the first in their Hunger Games cycle) was pegged to direct, and now the film looks to have found a star in Hugh Jackman.
Jackman will play Odysseus, the legendary hero who underwent a decade long struggle to return to Greece following the Trojan war. Jackman has the physique of a Greek God, so portraying one of the nation’s mortal luminaries should be a piece of cake. Expect him to face off against all manner of trial, tribulation and mythic CGI adversary, as this sounds like it’s going to be a period retelling.
The Odyssey will be a major undertaking from Lionsgate, who will be looking to line up a Hunger »

Forbes have released their annual list of the highest paid actresses of 2015, and Jennifer Lawrence has topped it, with $52 million earned in the last 12 months. Lawrence has had a great year, starring in the penultimate ‘Hunger Games‘ movie, as well as turns in X-Men: Days Of Future Past (though that may have fallen into last year’s pay-packet), and the poorly received Serena. She has a promising 2015-2016 too with a reported $20 million going into the bank for sci-fi drama Passengers with Chris Pratt, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, and the awards-buzzed Joy.
Scarlett Johannson was number two on the list with $35 million earned, with Melissa McCarthy having a storming year with $23 million banked. Chinese actress Bingbing Fan, who appeared in ‘Days Of Future Past’ as well, came in at number four with $21 million earned. »

Love her or hate her, Jennifer Lawrence made quite a lot more money than you, any of your friends or family and all of the rest of the actresses in the world during 2015. While Katniss Everdeen is short on bread, this celebrity certainly is not, as Forbes names her the highest paid actress of 2015. Not just here in the states, but worldwide.
So, how much did Jennifer Lawrence make in 2015? Are you sure you really want to know? The 25-year-old pulled in $52 million before taxes over 12 months. She beat number two on the list, Scarlett Johansson, by $16.5 million. The Avengers: Age of Ultron star pulled in $35.5 million. This year, Forbes changed things up, including actresses from all around the world. Despite knocking down these borders, only one non-American managed to make the list. Chinese actress Bingbing Fan landed at number four, just behind comedian Melissa McCarthy. The Spy star pulled in $23 million, »
According to a spokesperson for Jackman, “this is a conversation at this point. Very early stages and nothing is confirmed.”
