'Catching Fire' Trailer Premieres At Comic-Con, Proving What The Hungriest Game Really Is

Breaking: Peeta is still gorgeous. Over the weekend, Katniss and Co. showed up in San Diego at a little thing called Comic-Con to share with 6,000 of their nearest and dearest fans the first trailer for Catching Fire, the Hunger Games sequel due out November 22nd. Rather than recap the trailer that you can just as easily watch, let's discuss Jennifer Lwarence's training for the film as she spoke about it on the panel. She said, "the hardest stunt is probably still just basic running." Hmm. That seems counterintuitive. Go on, Jennifer. "Running and trying not to hit myself in the face with my bow, those were my two greatest challenges," adding that she runs "weird" and had to hire a running coach. What's really odd about this statement is that she won an Oscar for a film in which half her screen time seemed to be following her as she ran around the neighborhood. I guess they weren't looking for Oscar-caliber jogging in this film, but perhaps some sort of trot that resonates better with middle America and tweens.

The Victors Must Be Eradicated In 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Trailer

It ain't easy being famous in the Districts. Jennifer Lawrence is back as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Since we last saw Katniss, she's now famous for proving her efficiency at murdering teenagers as well as her talent for putting a middle finger in the face of the Capitol. This doesn't sit well with Donald Sutherland's cartoon-evil President Snow and he intends to do something about it. Like beating random old men in front of hundreds of witnesses. That's really going to hurt the old man vote. Though the real news here is the addition of Philip Seymour Hoffman to the series. He steps in for Wes Bentley as Plutarch Heavensbee, the new Head Gamemaker tasked with killing off Katniss and the other victors. Regrettably, he doesn't wear a silly wig or beard. I guess there's only so much money the studio could drive up to his house.


The Final 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Trailer Has Killer Monkeys

This November, death throws its poop. The final trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiered last night during Game 4 of the World Series because baseball fans love watching Donald Sutherland use advanced technology to murder children. It's like their favorite thing outside of baseball. The stakes have been raised as Katniss finds herself forced to compete against past victors of The Hunger Games and here greatest foe yet. That's right, killer monkeys. This November, death throws its poop.


Check Out The Star-Studded Trailer For 'Digging For Fire'

This has to be the most high-profile cast ever assembled for a film named after a Pixies song. Do you like Jake Johnson? How about Orlando Bloom, Anna Kendrick, Sam Elliott, Ron Livingston, Chris Messina, Jenny Slate, Melanie Lynskey, Sam Rockwell, Mike Birbiglia, and Brie Larson? Huh? You like THOSE actors? Cause if you do, then the Digging for Fire trailer might interest you. Joe Swanberg is directing a film about a crisis in the life of two 30-something LA residents. I don't want to give away any plot points, but if that cast doesn't motivate you to watch the trailer, then you're probably not going to watch it no matter what. (Vulture)


'Game Of Thrones' Season 3 Trailer: Ice and Fire Delivered As Promised

HBO's really pumping money into this show now. Fans of the undead and heads getting bashed in are in for the best night of their lives on Sunday, March 1st. On that night, The Walking Dead wraps up its third season and passes the torch to Game Of Thrones as the HBO series returns for season three. After months of teases and plugging fingers in our ears as friends discuss the book, we finally have an actual look at show footage. And dragons. Fully grown dragons f&*%ing up people's sh*t. Here's hoping this is the season where Joffrey will be impaled on the Iron Throne. Why else would there be swords all over that thing?


Peep This: Jennifer Lawrence In 'The Hunger Games'

Katniss shows off her hunting skills. Though Jennifer Lawrence couldn't make it in person to feel Beyonce's baby bump at the MTV VMA's, she was able to send over the first clip from The Hunger Games. The highly-anticipated adaptation of Suzanne Collins' bestseller is currently filming but Lionsgate was able to drop a quick scene of Lawrence's Katniss stalking around the forest with bow in hand. Ready to hunt or be hunted. Meanwhile, co-star Liam Hemsworth provides a voice-over pep talk reminding her not to get killed. Then flaming trees fall before her at every step. Who is she hunting? Dragons??


'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Trailer Makes Us All Want To Revolt

You didn't think Comic-Con would come and go without at least a little something from The Hunger Games, arguably one of the biggest franchises in the world, did you? Of course you didn't. Thy would never do that. So they gave us a one-minute teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 that offers up a surprising amount of imagery, but waits until the very end before giving us the Katniss reveal. As fans would expect (that haven't read the books) the last two entries dispense with the concept of The Hunger Games and pretty much chronicle the rebellion, as when we last left our heroes, the games had ended prematurely and Districts were being set ablaze. Expect more significant trailers soon in anticipation of the November 21st premiere.


New 'Sherlock' Teaser Fires Us Up For A Whopping Three More Episodes

To be fair, they're really long episodes! Having been eagerly chomping at the bit, waiting Sherlock fans have a light at the end of the tunnel, with the announcement that series (season) three of the acclaimed BBC show will be airing in October in the UK, and January here in the colonies. Fans of the show have been forced to adopt a masochistic bent, seeing as how the show has suffered frequent delays in filming, and each series is running on three episodes. However, each episode is tantamount to a movie, so what the show lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. Anyway, this is all good news, and hopefully, for the initiated, a handful of new Sherlock eps can fill a Breaking Bad-sized hole in our hearts.


Here's The Official Final* 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Trailer

*If this turns out to be the actual final trailer, I will eat my own butt. Not really gonna sell this "final" trailer too much, because the nice thing about the Hunger Games and Jennifer Lawrence is that they pretty much sell themselves. We just provide them a forum. As you've probably gleaned from the 21,000 trailers since the Comic-Con premiere, we've got an angry Katniss leading a revolution against The Capitol. We've got a posthumous Phillip Seymour Hoffman making a heartbreaking appearance, and we've got Donald Sutherland being So. Upset. By. These. Damn. Rebels. You're going to see the movie. Maybe on opening night. Probably opening night. Go see the movie opening night. You're not doing anyone any favors by being contrarian. (THR)
