Is Katniss Ready To Take On The Capitol?

The first teaser for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″ debuted at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, further whetting fans’ appetites for the movie’s premiere later this year. Only a minute long and featuring only four words from Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen, the teaser focuses primarily on Plutarch Heavensbee (the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) and President Coin (Julianne Moore), the leader of District 13, discussing whether Katniss is ready to lead a revolution against the Capitol.

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Talent Remembered In Epic Memorial Clip

it's time to cry
The Essential Philip Seymour Hoffman

Maybe you won’t cry while watching this 20 minute long memorial clip of the best moments of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s expansive film career. But you’ll certainly be left with a heavy heart at the illimitable artist the world has lost. From his lighter, more comedic roles in “Almost Famous” and “Flawless,” to his severe and ascetic ones in “The Master” and “Doubt,” the wide-ranging talent he shared during his 22-year-long career is on full display. Filmmaker Caleb Spain reportedly spent over 200 searching for clips from 47 films. It’s time to mop up these damp cheeks and go add some of these films to the Netflix queue. [Vimeo]

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Will Left Out His Two Daughters

  • Philip Seymour Hoffman’s will has been filed and he left the bulk if his money to his longtime partner, Mimi O’Donnell, the mother of his three children and the executrix of his estate. The will was written before his two youngest daughters were born, however, so it only establishes a trust in the name of his son Cooper, who is now 10. (Cooper will inherit half his trust at 25 and the rest at 30.) PSH’s will also stipulated that he wants Cooper to be raised in either Manhattan, Chicago or San Francisco, “so that my son will be exposed to the culture, arts and architecture that such cities offer.” Hopefully as the executrix of his will, O’Donnell can distribute the late actor’s finances more equitably amongst all his children.

“Almost Famous” Director Cameron Crowe Shares His Memories Of Philip Seymour Hoffman And Now I’m Bummed Out

almost famous PSH

“He sat down and we talked about the meaning of the script and the commercialization of music and movies. And that’s where we bonded a bit. When he drove to the office, he’d seen a director on a billboard doing an endorsement for a product. So he referenced that as “the line is blurry now.” In the time of the script, musicians didn’t do commercials. The lines were clearly drawn. And he was very interested in exploring what that line was.”

Director Cameron Crowe spoke to Rolling Stone about Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Almost Famous,” in which he played the cranky rock music journalist Lester Bangs. He detailed Hoffman’s ability to pick up on so many nuances of Lester’s personality and discussed that much-loved scene when he and Patrick Fugit’s character bond over how uncool they are: Keep reading »

Drake Sort Of Apologizes For Complaining That Rolling Stone Replaced His Cover With Philip Seymour Hoffman

  • Drake apologized — sort of — on his website today for complaining on Twitter that he was “disgusted” that Rolling Stone replaced his planned cover with one honoring Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died recently of a drug overdose.  ”I completely support and agree with Rolling Stone replacing me on the cover with the legendary Phillip Seymour Hoffman,” Drizzy wrote. “He is one of the most incredible actors of our time and a man that deserves to be immortalized by this publication. My frustration stemmed from the way it was executed.” But then he said people took his “initial comments out of context” and implied Rolling Stone should have asked him permission or even input on how to handle the piece. I don’t know, he still comes off looking very arrogant to me. [Octobers Very Own via Entertainment Weekly]

Drake Whines That Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Death Took Away His Rolling Stone Cover

“[Rolling Stone] also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue. I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil. I’m done doing interviews for magazines. I just want to give my music to the people. That’s the only way my message gets across accurately.”

Drake is angry at Rolling Stone for allegedly publishing quotes in a forthcoming article which throw shade at Kanye West, whom he has performed with and been mentored by in the past. He claims he “never commented on Yeezus for my interview portion of Rolling Stone” — though that doesn’t make clear whether he dissed Kanye while a reporter was within earshot or the quotes were made up. (I am guessing the former.) Either way, complaining he is “disgusted” because Rolling Stone replaced his cover with one HONORING A BELOVED ACTOR’S DEATH is super egotistical and tacky. You’ll have plenty of time for more covers while you’re still, you know, alive, Drake. All respect due? Yeah, right. (Drake has since deleted the tweets about PSH. The internet never forgets, Drizzy.) [Stereogum]
