The full trailer for “Mockingjay: Part One” is here and it looks a lot like Mockingjay the book: really, really, really not as good as the first two book in the Hunger Games series. (Sorry, Hollywood, I know you don’t want to hear this.) In “Part One” — “Mockingjay” has been split into two films — Katniss Everdeen is living in District 13 and fighting to save Peeta, who has been taken hostage and tortured by Panem. But if you’ve seen “The Hunger Games” and “Catching Fire,” I suppose you’ll see this trilogy (er, quad-logy?) through to the end. Personally, it’s got too many guns and fighter jets for my taste. What do you think?
Whatever brilliant mind set scenes from “Orange Is The New Black” to the “Golden Girls” theme deserves all of the awards. This is so good, it almost tops the kitty rendition of the series. Almost. [Cosmopolitan]
Presented without comment. Well, except to say that if you want your own Teen Cunt shirt, it will only set you back $225.
Your TiVo queue just got unbelievably hotter: a BDSM erotica trilogy by Anne Rice, under the pen name A.N. Roquelaur, is headed to TV. The popular books, The Claiming Of Sleeping Beauty, Beauty’s Punishment and Beauty’s Release, will be adapted into a TV series for the channel Televisa USA. Your mom bought these compulsively readable books back in the ’80s when Rice first penned them, but they are still on the fiction shelves in bookstores today, especially after the renewed interest in BDSM due to the popularity of Fifty Shades Of Grey. But unlike the writing in Fifty Shades, which was terrible, the Sleeping Beauty books are gripping and the spanking scenes — oh, so many spanking scenes — are hotter. Should be fun for TV. Rice is executive producing the show alongside Rachel Winter, who was nominated for an Oscar for “Dallas Buyers Club.” Yay ladies! [The Hollywood Reporter]
From now on, when people ask me what being single in New York City is like, I’m going to point them towards this video. The dude site Elite Daily profiled a creepy homeless dude named Joe. who proudly describes how he gets by on the cold, hard streets of NYC by stealing supplies like Red Bull and hair gel from Duane Reade and picking up women to bang — excuse me, “lay the good pipe” — so he has a place to sleep. That this guys is actually successful at the latter shows just how dire the dating situation is. [NYMag.com]
