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 »
There's pretty much nothing Hollywood loves more than a comeback, which is why it's no surprise that Hollywood is loving Wes Bentley right now. (And, we gotta say, we're loving him too.)
The "American Beauty" star, who nearly fell off the Tinseltown grid due to a drug addiction only to resurface as the all-powerful Seneca Crane in "The Hunger Games," has landed yet another stellar role — this time in "Chavez." Get More »
Faithful as it was to the source material, "The Hunger Games" still had more than its fair share of on-screen surprises.
Even so, the following eight moments had our jaws on the floor.
Do be warned: this list is full of delicious spoilers, so if you haven't seen the movie yet, you may want to bookmark this column for later. Get More »
Elizabeth Banks understands the brutality of "The Hunger Games" much better than her character Effie Trinket, but it doesn't keep her from a little fantasy Tribute casting with MTV's "10 on Top." In this exclusive NextMovie video, Banks names her dream celeb arena warriors: Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.
Even a sense of hope requires a (corrupt) political system of checks and balances.
President Snow (Donald Sutherland) discusses the darker side of public relations with Head Gamemaker Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley) in this new clip from "The Hunger Games," which premiered as an IGN exclusive.
Snow reveals how he keeps the citizens of Panem in line with his thoughts on the power of hope over fear -- and how each feeling needs to be strictly controlled in order for him to stay on top. Crane, like a good minion, scowls and nods. 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.
A brand new "Hunger Games" clip has been sent down from The Capitol, and Oh My Katniss is it a great one.
Those who've read Suzanne Collins' book to prepare for the Games know exactly which scene this is, but for the uninitiated, it's a moment when Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) must show off her skills to the Hunger Games' organizers (The Gamemakers) in the hopes of getting high marks and hopefully some sponsorship opportunities in the Arena.
Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley) and the rest of the Gamemakers lot have already seen twenty-something tributes by this point, though, so they don't even notice when Katniss hits a clean bullseye from across the room in one shot with her trusty archery knack. Their attention is instead focused squarely on a roasted pig - not the subtlest of metaphors - that's just been delivered.
So, in sassy Katniss form, she takes aim for their dinner. She does not miss. Get More »
In this taut thriller, Seyfried plays Jill, a young woman still suffering PTSD from a kidnapping she survived. Her sister Molly comes to live with her, and when Molly vanishes, Jill has to try to track her down, possibly from her previous attacker. Where's Molly? She's gone, daddy, gone. Get More »
Still riding high from getting his NYU professor fired the summer blockbuster "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," James Franco is in talks to make a cameo appearance as the one and only Hugh Hefner in "Lovelace."
The drama, based on Eric Danville's biography, "The Complete Linda Lovelace," follows Linda Boreman's transformation into porn star Linda Lovelace, her rise to fame that climaxed (hee hee) with her 1972 flick "Deep Throat," and her subsequent conversion into the feminist, anti-porn activist Linda Marchiano. Sounds pretty complete to us. Get More »
Fresh off her role as a… uh… promiscuous high-schooler in "Dirty Girl," Juno Temple has landed a part in the family film biopic "Lovelace," which tells the story of the star of the infamous "Deep Throat." In addition to Temple, Wes Bentley (yes, the brooding hottie from "American Beauty") joins the cast.
According to Cinema Blend, these two additions join an A-list cast, led by Amanda Seyfried as the titular Linda Lovelace. Sharon Stone will play her mother, and Peter Sarsgaard portrays Linda's sadistic, abusive first husband. Get More »
