That bunch knows how to sizzle before the camera. But did you know Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen) can also air-puppetteer her own face? Or that Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark) can make an insane cricket chirping noise on cue? Or that Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne) can perform magic tricks for a crowd? Get More »
We know you're already camped out to get your hands on "The Hunger Games" DVD on Saturday, so thankfully we've got a video interview to keep you occupied.
We caught up with two stars of the epic movie, Willow Shields and Amandla Stenberg, who play Katniss' sister Primrose and District 11's young tribute Rue. They told us all about life after filming "The Hunger Games," and Stenberg revealed her surprising reaction to watching Rue's sad fate on screen for the first time. Get More »
There may only be a few things officially lined up for "The Hunger Games" at this year's Comic-Con event (we can probably — hopefully! — count on a proper "Catching Fire" cast and filmmaker panel next summer), but there's still some real potential for the annual shindig-o-geekery to make us feel like we're living right there in Victor's Village.
On the heels of "The Hunger Games"' record-smashing debut at the box office, some truly disturbing but sadly unsurprising news has emerged on what some fans have been complaining about the movie on Twitter.
According to the Tumblr page Hunger Games Tweets, a crop of racist remarks concerning the film's diverse cast -- particularly aimed at the characters Rue (Amandla Stenberg) and Thresh (Dayo Okeniyi) -- began appearing in the Twitterverse over the weekend.
"Why does rue have to be black not gonna lie kinda ruined the movie," tweeted one clueless fan, because obviously any black character that elicits sympathy and love is bound to ruin a racist's day at the movies. Get More »
Amandla Stenberg had some sweet stunts in "Colombiana," but that's nothing compared to what she's had to tackle as Rue, the tree-hopping young tribute in "The Hunger Games." Stenberg's screen time is inversely proportional to the effect her character has on Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the way the Games themselves play out. Anyone who's read the books knows what we mean -- and if you haven't yet, get to it! Get More »
Slowly but surely, we're getting a better and better picture of what "The Hunger Games" movie is going to look like.
Actually, we take that back. Today brings us four new images, including Katniss and Haymitch having a little moment and President Snow in his rose garden with Seneca Crane.
So, without any further ado, click away.
In "The Hunger Games," Katniss' only shot at sizing up the competition comes from screening a few reaping ceremonies and interviews.
We fans, however, have an opportunity to learn a lot about the line-up of young castmates thanks to their previous movies and television roles.
In fact, these kids' prior work is so great that we decided to knot together a little handy-dandy must-see list. Check these out and you'll be well-versed in who's who among the "Hunger Games" tributes and friends long before anyone steps foot in the Arena. Get More »
Each new movie calendar year brings gleeful anticipation for truly thrilling cinematic surprises, be they for multi-tentacled CGI creatures, massive Michael Bay-splosions, or tear-jerking biopics.
One of the best feelings of all, though, is to come out of a theater beaming at having discovered a new talent that you just know will be around for many more years to come. All these folks have that potential for longevity, but they're starting things off with a clean slate as they attempt to win us over with breakout performances in some of Hollywood's biggest films.

Just when you thought you couldn't possibly survive one more minute without getting a sneak peek at your favorite "Hunger Games" stars — all of their character posters have been revealed. The array of profile shots are clearly going for emotion (with the close-ups), drama (with the lighting) and a healthy dose of hotness.
Even though this film doesn't hit theaters until March 2012, we say it's time to let the games begin! Get More »
Ever since Lionsgate announced their plans to do a big budget, big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' "Hunger Games" trilogy, fans and media alike have parsed every decision, from the casting choices (Jennifer Lawrence! Josh Hutcherson! Lenny Kravitz?) down to the font used to print the screenplay (we lean towards Helvetica). But one area that hasn't really been touched on yet is music.
Well, until now, that is.
Add the soundtrack to the topic of discussion, because the folks at Echo Mountain Recording have posted some info a recording session there -- one that involved both Lawrence and producing superstar T. Bone Burnett. Get More »
