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.


'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.


Here's The First Teaser Trailer For 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2'

A preview to the conclusion of the saga. After three installments, we're reaching the end of The Hunger Games story. The Capitol is up to their usual horseshit, and the resistance has only gotten stronger, with Katniss helping lead the charge against them. This is a teaser in the truest sense, in that we don't get one damn image from the film, but just some dialog from earlier installments, and I"m guessing some from the new one. Well, consider me teased. We've got pretty much the same cast of characters coming back, so I don't think that visuals would give us that much more of a clue as to what's going on, but it would be funny if we learned that Woody Harrelson got a face tattoo or something. That would be a fun little spin on his character. We'll just have to wait for the images to see if that ridiculous notion gets incorporated into the film. (THR)


Lorde's New 'Hunger Games' Song Sounds Like Lorde With A Little More Drama Injected

Lorde, the toddler from New Zealand (ok, she's like 17) is back with another song for the Hunger Games franchise. In Catching Fire Part 2, she's giving us "Yellow Flicker Beat." Give it a listen and see what you think. The song starts off a little dramatic, but then becomes a dance number that is more reminiscent of her album stuff, if not more produced. Last time around, she gave us a very very very slow version of Tears for Fears "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" that was haunting. This one will make you bob your head a little bit, until we remember that District 12 is gone and WHERE'S GALE?


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)


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??


...And Now 'Hunger Games' Gets Its Honest Trailer

This 'Hunger Games' trailer will leave you "thirsty" for more. Puns!!! The shakey-cam, the blurriness, the bad writing may have been forgiven by audiences during its theatrical run, but once the dust has settled (and Break can get its hands on all the footage), Hunger Games may not get the trailer it needs, but the trailer it deserves. To the credit of the parties behind the trailer, we're all pretty excited that at least this film isn't about gay vampires. Or regular vampires. Or former presidents that are vampire hunters. So here you go. Your criticisms have been heard and noted. And put into a mock trailer. You DO have a voice.
