Things are heating up as we approach the November 21st premiere date for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Over the weekend a new teaser hit the Internet and the second trailer is scheduled to pop later today around noon. How far into Suzanne Collins third book will director Francis Lawrence take us in Part 1?
As pretty much everyone on the planet knows, last weekend a massive iCloud hack led to the release of hundreds of private photos of various female celebrities nude and/or in sexual situations; pictures the celebrities never meant the public to see. Whether or not you sought the pictures out for whatever reason, you are no doubt aware the leak was a serious invasion of privacy and the women who were victim to this intrusion have every right to be upset. Well, just in case having the world ogle their lady bits on home computers wasn’t bad enough for these women, an artist has decided to put the most popular of these leaked photos on display as part of a new art exhibit in Saint Petersburg, Fl., hosted by Cory Allen Contemporary Art’s The Showroom.

Quentin Tarantino knows how to pull a cast together. Each and every one of his movies thus far has boasted a diverse and talented cast, even when members of that cast may not have been seen in a wide release movie in years. From John Travolta to Pam Grier, from Samuel L. Jackson to Leonardo Dicaprio, Tarantino is able to take actors that may not have much in common on paper and thrust them into a brilliant example of cinematography and dialogue as equals. It’s wonderful when Quentin is able to utilize actors that have shied away from the spotlight but when he is able to bring an award winning actor into the fold, it’s more than just wonderful – it’s supremely exciting. Thanks to the folks over at Collider, audiences may now have the newest name to be added to the Tarantino flock and if their source is correct, the newest addition to Tarantino’s tribute to spaghetti westerns, Hateful Eight, will get plenty of people excited for the project.

Ok, so who remembers the teen movie entitled ‘Not Another Teen Movie?‘ I don’t because I don’t watch corny stuff. But let’s imagine that somebody wanted to build off the fad of those parody movies and pitched ‘Not Another High School Show‘ for television. It was developed in 2007 and a pilot was shot for Comedy Central but it wasn’t picked up. The show was allegedly supposed to include individual sketches, an example of which somebody found in a trashcan and put on YouTube. It’s called ‘Muffy The Vampire Slayer’ and holy cats are you in for it. Not to dissect it too deeply before you’ve watched the clip, but let’s just say that it starred Alison Brie in the title role. Oh, and Jennifer Lawrence pops in for a few seconds too. Wait a minute, this sounds awesome… (more…)
Congratulations to the three of you who got that joke in the headline. But now that it’s out of the way, it’s time to get serious about the third film in The Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay Part 1. Six new character posters have been released to promote the film, featuring a look, but not a vast look, at the formally mythical 13th District of Panem. There’s a definite aesthetic to design of these posters, and even not so careful observers will see that there are a couple of characters missing from this collection. What do I mean, and who’s missing from this latest round of posterization? Check out the gallery below. (more…)
We’re finally getting closer to a full trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Although physically battered and emotionally exhausted by her latest trip into The Hunger Games Arena, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is back in action and ready or not, has to be the face of the rebellion against District One. Hopefully the first full trailer will hit the Internet sometime early next week. Until then, you’ll have to scratch that Hunger Games itch with this teaser. (more…)
With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy’s first trailer last week, we kinda forgot all about (briefly) one of the other superhero movies coming out this summer: X-Men: Days of Future Past. A French website aims to change that with a bunch of new shots from the film, including a snap of Quicksilver played by Evan Peters. That’s no big deal, right? But there are bigger questions that a couple of the photos raise, like the sight of a certain girl with Quicksilver… You know who we’re talking about. (more…)
