Halloweenis just around the bend, and we have a sneaking suspicion that some of you tributes may want to take your costume fare to District 12 (or the Capitol — we don't judge) this year.
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 »
Unless you've been hiding under a rock a la Peeta Mellark in the arena for the past few weeks, you probably already know that "The Hunger Games" on DVD is finally dropping this weekend (Aug. 18, to be precise). Needless to say, tributes the world over are now furiously counting down the remaining hours — as Wiress from "Catching Fire" would say, "tick tock, tick tock" — until the games can begin at home.
If you're like us, you'll be hitting the nearest midnight release party (which can be found with this handy dandy locator) and clapping like a Capitol kid just raring to see the show as you grip the plastic-sheathed cover of your very own copy. While there won't be any deleted scenes on the DVD, there will be some new behind-the-scenes goodies and commentary to enjoy within. Not to mention the small fact that you'll be able to watch "The Hunger Games" at home as often as you like.
So, to help make the big occasion even more of a B.F.D. than it already is, we cooked up a checklist of things die-hard "Hunger Games" fans can do to celebrate the long-awaited release throughout the weekend. Get More »
Lately there've been a ton of tasty news bites coming out of the world of "The Hunger Games." From "Catching Fire" pre-production to the cast scooping up some surfboards and "Mockingjay" being split into two, there's a lot to chew on here. So, grab a fork and get ready to eat it all up! 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.
You've already browsed our wish list for "The Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire", and now that things are really starting to heat up in the casting arena, we've got a few ideas as to who should play who to throw into the mix as well!
There are a ton of new tributes who come into the picture with the second story, but these six must be cast right on the mark.
Check out our picks for each of them, vote in our polls, and hit us up in the comments and let us know what you think. Did we hit the mark, or do you picture someone totally different? Get More »
The only question is: In which arenas will the tributes prevail?
"The Hunger Games" movie has done more than just give us the braided badass Katniss Everdeen on-screen: it's also served up a useful "How To" guide for future book-to-film adaptations on a Panem-sized platter.
We've come up with 12 basic lessons to be drawn from "The Hunger Games" by anyone looking to create the next book-based blockbuster, and following these closely might just mean the difference between hitting the mark dead center and, well, being laughed at after a shoot and a miss. Get More »
Forget being "First in Flight." What's really apt to pump in some North Carolina tourism this summer is "The Hunger Games."
The full movie was shot across the state last year, tapping several different towns to accommodate the vastly ranging set looks and, as a result, the state's already prepared for an influx of tributes from across the globe. In fact, they've got a handy four-day itinerary all lined up to take the heat off making arrangements. Get More »
Now that he's the chosen one and has been offered the gig by Lionsgate, though, we think the selection makes a whole lotta sense. Hear us out.
First of all, there are some serious time constraints to be considered with "Catching Fire." The very reason Gary Ross declined the job of helming the film, he said, was that he wouldn't have enough time to properly prepare the movie to his liking.
