Ever do the thing where you stare at nice, puffy, white cloud long enough and it turns into the second installment of a smash-hit dystopian young adult franchise? Us too. Get More »
Changing appearances for the sake of entertainment is nothing new in Hollywood; it's all part of the gig. But when professional heartthrob Ryan Gosling tweaks his look, disgruntled fans are going to have something to say about it.
In "The Place Beyond the Pines," Gosling sports a bleach-blond 'do for his role as a motorcycle racer-turned-bank robber. As photos started surfacing during the film's production, people were wondering what the heck was going on with his hair. Serious drama. Get More »
[From MTV News] Don't be so sensitive, Josh Hutcherson! Or, actually, do. Do be so sensitive. It's part of what we love about you.
MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with the charmingly earnest "Hunger Games" star for a Sensitive Guys 101 chat. The two discussed the best kind of pie to cheer someone up, Hutcherson's extreme politeness standards, and how often Hutcherson has a little weepfest.
"There's the morning cry and then the shower cry at the end of the night every night," Hutcherson says. "At least two a day, depending on the vents of the day, it could be up to four or five, but two a day is pretty standard."
Check out the video above, or head over to MTV News for your morning swoon.
"Hunger Games" star Elizabeth Banks is extending her reach beyond the walls of Panem—and no, she's not running off into the forest (though that would be cool too). Banks has signed on to headline "What's the Matter with Margie."
Penned by Alan Ball ("American Beauty"), the dark comedy follows the story of a down-on-her-luck office-worker (Banks—presumably playing the titular character Margie) who, after years of being stepped on by colleagues and associates, finally snaps and resorts to murder as a solution to her problems.
Hmm. Well, we guess that's one approach, though maybe not the best. Get More »
The only thing Hollywood loves that a sure-thing is, well, another sure thing. Which is why Tinseltown is all a twitter as a few more names get thrown into the hat for possible directors of "The Hunger Games" sequel, "Catching Fire."
In addition to David Cronenberg, Alfonso Cuaron and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (who were first mentioned as candidates last week), two more A-list contenders have been added: "Moneyball" helmer Bennet Miller and "I Am Legend" director Francis Lawrence. Get More »
When a studio pours eye-numbing amounts of money into a movie, it wants people to see it — all people… not just us mature folks 15 and over.
Which is why it should come as no surprise that Lionsgate opted to make seven seconds worth of tweaks to the soon-to-be-released "Hunger Games" flick to lower the U.K. ratings bar from 15 to 12A (which is pretty much the same thing as PG-13 on this side of the pond).
So what did the powers-that-be edit or remove? Violence and injuries that contained a lot of blood — or something. According to Deadline, four scenes of violence and one scene that depicted details of injuries were cleaned up. Get More »
We scour the interwebs for the coolest movie news and more so you don't have to ...
Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz let Hollywood Crush in on the prank the whole cast of "Breaking Dawn" pulled on their director.

Live from New York... it's the "Dark Knight"! The cast and crew of "Dark Knight Rises" are filming today in New York City and attracting all sorts of attention, because not even New Yorkers are jaded enough to ignore Christian Bale dressed in a black spandex unitard. MTV reporters are there giving constant updates on all the action. Get More »
Is another Oscar nominee about to join the "Hunger Games" gang?
Actually, in this case, we're talking about an Oscar winner, as a Berlin concertgoer reported to fan site Mockingjay.net that Glen Hansard, the Academy Award-winning singer-songwriter and star of "Once," announced at a show in the German city that he would be appearing on the "The Hunger Games" soundtrack, and proceeded to play a song written from the protagonist's perspective.

It was hard enough reaching the end of the "Harry Potter" series in book form. Knowing the end is nigh for the movies leaves us feeling a little empty inside.
Empty and extremely curious about what big, magical franchise will come out on top in a post-"Potter," post-"Twilight" world.
As we dry our tears – in some cases, literally – we look into our office crystal ball, consult a few aurors and shuffle our Tarot cards to conjure up six book franchises on the cusp of taking the world by storm. Get More »
UPDATE: The votes have been tabulated and the results are in!
Believe it or not, fans of "The Hunger Games" don't want to be called Hungry Hippos or Peetaphiles -- they want to be called... TRIBUTES!
After extensive polling and thousands of votes over five full days, "Tributes" took the cake with 37-percent of the vote. Trailing behind were "Mockingjays" with 24-percent and "Jabberjays" with 21-percent.
"Harry Potter" has decades-long Potterheads and "Twilight" its hardcore Twihards, so it's only natural that the vocal "Hunger Games" followers would end up with their own nickname now that the first movie's release is less than nine months away. Get More »
