the hunger games


Two new television clips have been released for the last installment of The Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. Final Battle and Her Story give a couple of new looks at what is coming at us on the November 4th release date. I’m looking forward to the final film and it should hold the number one spot until Star Wars: The Force Awakens starts breaking all those box office records.


Katniss and co. are back, and reminding us that their rebellion is not over yet. The official teaser site for the The Hunger Games franchise has released a new image promoting the newest and final installment of the series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. The photo features Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) garbed in red from neck to toe, with her ever-present quiver of arrows across her back. She’s sitting in President Snow’s chair in the Capitol, harkening back to earlier teasers featuring Peeta and Snow himself in the same chair. Accompanying the picture is text that reads “The Capitol Must Fall So We May Be Free.” (more…)


Creating destination theme attractions based on material from the movies goes back to when Walt Disney had an idea to turn acres of prime California real estate into an ode to the intellectual property he created that can be enjoyed by the entire family. Now, in that fine tradition, fans of The Hunger Games films will be able to go to a park where they can live in the dystopian/draconian future created by author Suzanne Collins and the films that are based on her works. Yay? Yes, now soon all the fun of hunting down adolescences in a brutal and booby trapped environment will be yours according to a recent press release. (more…)


Lionsgate is taking its biggest movie franchise The Hunger Games to the theater boards in a live action stage show that will in all likelihood involve some innovative production techniques. The show will launch in 2016 in a brand new purpose-built theater next door to Wembley Stadium in London. Image Nation and Triangler Entertainment are in charge of bringing The Hunger Games to the stage.



You came back! This time on RadioBastard things get a bit weird, Jeremy and Jason face-off against AJ and Paul (aka Apple Jax and Saul) from the Gobbledygeek Podcast in a test of wits and endurance as they all banter about the prospect of joylessness in the DC Movie Universe, Jimmy Olsen’s legs, the latest Doctor Strange rumors, a Hunger Games theme park and 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…)
