Hazarding his opinion on studio trends of which audiences may have grown weary, Imax Entertainment CEO Greg Foster told those assembled at the Bank of America 2014 Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference that, “Maybe people are getting a little sick of the post-apocalyptic, dark, angst-ridden, suicidal movies.” Now, here’s a guy whose business partly depends on the studios’ success, but who doesn’t spend his days interpreting audience analytics and agonizing over what to feed us next. And maybe that distance from the problem enables him to see things more clearly. Between 2013 and 2014, we got “Elysium,” “Oblivion,” “After Earth,” “Edge of Tomorrow,” “Snowpiercer,” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” In less post-apocalyptic, more dystopian future Ya fare, we got “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Ender’s Game,” “Divergent,” “The Giver,” and, along similar lines, “The Purge” and “The Purge: Anarchy.” There’s obviously something in those audience analytics telling. »

"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:

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...

Last week we got to see a new poster for Mockingjay Part 1, featuring Katniss ready for battle, with the promise a new trailer coming soon. Today's the day and, as promised, a new trailer for the penultimate Hunger Games movie has released and it's pretty epic to watch. Come inside to check it out!
I'm loving this trailer. In fact within the first few seconds, I had chills. When President Snow is speaking with Katniss, there's so much menace and threat behind it (even while smiling), it's hard Not to have a reaction to it. It makes for a more powerful villain. The rest of the trailer is similarly awesome, setting up some big action sequences, along with letting people know exactly what's going on with Peeta...without giving it all away just yet.
I was already looking forward to this film (despite it's mouthful of a title), coming off of the excellently done sequel, »

Jennifer Lawrence is back as Katniss in the action packed look at “Part 1”
“I never wanted any of this.”
So says Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen at the beginning of the trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. And it’s no wonder why: The first look at the third installment finds Katniss and cohorts shooting their way in and out of various war zones, battling Star Wars-esque Peace Keepers, and clutching their loved ones for dear life. Prim!
The trailer also gives us our first good look at District 13 and the newest citizens of Panem (Julianne Moore as President Coin, a brief glimpse of Natalie Dormer as Cressida), as well as reuniting us with familiar faces (a truly depressing make-under for Effie; oodles of Liam Hemsworth, for all you Team Gale-rs disappointed in Catching Fire).
And a single, heart wrenching shot of Sam Claflin’s Finnick Odair. We aren’t »

"Ms. Everdeen, it's the things we love most that destroy us." After seeing Jennifer Lawrence all decked out in rebel gear and surrounded by fire on the latest posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I, the full theatrical trailer for the first chapter f of the two-part finale has arrived. This looks to be the biggest installment of the young adult franchise to date with larger scale action, higher stakes and Katniss becoming a true leader. Her confrontation with President Snow promises to be a great scene, and this looks like it has the potential to top Catching Fire, even if the source material left something to be desired. Watch! Here's the full trailer for Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I from Lionsgate: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I is the first movie in the two-part finale of The Hunger Games franchise, »

Lionsgate has released the full-length The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 trailer for the first half of director Francis Lawrence’s conclusion to the Hunger Games franchise. The film finds Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) at the forefront of the rebellion in District 13 while Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) are held captive in the Capitol. Francis Lawrence surprised the hell out of me with Catching Fire, which I thought was hands-down the best "tentpole" film of last year, and so I have high hopes for his adaptation of Mockingjay (the weakest book of the trilogy). What strikes me most about this trailer is that the film appears to be in the vein of an action pic, whereas Catching Fire was more of a thriller and the first film was essentially a survival movie. District 13 isn't exactly a cinematic location and there's a lot of bunker-set scenes in the book, »

''It's a very confusing, conflicted, complicated time for Katniss,'' Francis Lawrence told EW earlier this year, and he should know: the filmmaker also helmed 2013's “Catching Fire.” ''She's distraught, confused, angry.'' What’s Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) upset about? Well, at the end of the last “Hunger Games” movie she was rescued from a secret rebel alliance that left her Bff Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) for dead. For two, she was duped by Plutarch Heavensbee (the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) and Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) who couldn’t let her in on their clandestine plan until the absolutely right opportunity. And lastly, in the third ‘Hunger Games’ movie, “Mockingjay— Part 1” she has to become a rebel leader, much to her own angst, chagrin and reluctance. How is the final book “The Hunger Games” series being chaptered up and split in half? At what point does the narrative break into two movies? »

The Hunger Games instantly emerged as one of the most successful franchises of all time two years ago, and it seems like it’s drawing to an end only too soon, with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 arriving in just over two months’ time.
Jennifer Lawrence reprises her leading role as Katniss Everdeen, and everyone’s looking forward to seeing how it all progresses on the big screen from where Catching Fire left off last year. And with just weeks left on the clock before it hits, the studio has launched the main theatrical trailer.

The latest trailer for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" is jam-packed with action and anguish, as Katniss Everdeen begins to understand that she is the titular symbol of the rebellion in Panem, whether she likes it or not.
"I never wanted any of this," Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) tells President Snow (Donald Sutherland) at the beginning of the clip, explaining that she simply wished to protect Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and her sister, Prim (Willow Shields).
"It's the things we love the most that destroy us," Snow replies with a sinister smile, and indeed, it seems that Katniss and co. are in for plenty of destruction as the rebellion heats up and she becomes more directly invested in the fighting. We see her descend into the underground depths of District 13, where residents are stockpiling missiles and training for combat; we see her blow up a Capitol aircraft and another »

There's been more posters released for this flick than there are letters in the title, but as cool as some of them are, they don't quite measure up to seeing it all in motion as the shit hits the fan in the first full trailer to Part 1 of the epic Hunger Games conclusion, Mockingjay. Enjoy the money shots: The politics of The Hunger Games is really what compelled me to stick around with the series and I'm glad I have. I wouldn't say that Catching Fire is the be-all, end-all of action »

2014 has overall been a pretty good year for movies, with some fantastic Oscar contenders (and winners) released back in January and February, not to mention a summer packed full of great blockbusters and superb low-budget Indie movies like Jon Favreau’s Chef and comedies such as The Inbetweeners 2.
Superhero movies have dominated though, with Captain America, the X-Men and the Guardians of the Galaxy all keeping fans and regular moviegoers alike happy. The next one won’t be released until 2015 with Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, and there are still plenty of other big movies to look forward to in the rest of 2014.
Some are sequels and others are potentially the first instalment in a new franchise. Meanwhile, we also have plenty which could dominate come awards season, as well as more than enough movies which simply look like a fun time at the cinema as the »

After the announcement a few months ago that Thea Sharrock would be directing the adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You, it seems the adaptation now has its Will and Lou in the shape of Sam Claflin and Emilia Clarke.
Moyes took to Twitter to announce the news. She was particularly excited about the casting of Clarke, it seems, tweeting ‘She is Wonderful. My dream Lou.’ and ‘I Have The Khaleesi!’.
— Jojo Moyes (@jojomoyes) September 7, 2014
Clarke is of course better known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones while Claflin is known more for his role as Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and this November’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One.
