“Mockingjay” Split: Where Will It Be?

“The Hunger Games” film studio Lionsgate recently confirmed what we’ve been suspecting for a while now: that this franchise will duly follow in the footsteps of “Harry Potter” and “The Twilight Saga” and release its final chapter, “Mockingjay,” in two installments.

Yep, not surprisingly, a trilogy’s just not enough when we’re talking about cashing in on a phenomenon like this, so Suzanne Collins’ third and final “Hunger Games” book  will be split into two films, with Part 1 debuting on Nov. 21, 2014, and Part 2 following along on Nov. 20, 2015. Read more…

10 Things To Know About Sam Claflin AKA Finnick Odair In “Catching Fire”

“Hunger Games” fans, we have our Finnick Odair! After names like Taylor Kitsch, Chris Hemsworth, and Jesse Williams were tossed around, the producers eventually decided the token dreamboat of “Catching Fire” will be played by relative unknown Sam Claflin, So let’s find out a little more about the guy … and ogle his dreamboat status, of course…

10 Photos That Illustrate Why Jesse Williams Should Play Finnick Odair In “The Hunger Games” Sequels

Did you hear that? That noise? That’s the sound of racist Hunger Games fans losing their racist minds over the rumor that actor Jesse Williams (“Grey’s Anatomy”) is being considered for the role of Finnick Odair, one of the most popular characters in the second and third books in the Suzanne Collins’ trilogy. (And I was just getting used to the quiet following the Rue and Thresh ridiculous racist hullabaloo…) Williams, you see, is half-black. “Um, Finnick is supposed to be Caucasian,” wrote more than a few disgruntled fans of the series on various message boards online. A man of color can’t possibly play the dashing Finnick!

Hell. Yes. He. Can. Keep reading »

Which “Hunger Games” Character Topped A 2012 List Of Popular Baby Names?

It’s not a new trend to name your child after a favorite character from pop-culture but the last few years have lent themselves to trendy names from film making their way to the top of the list. For the last few years, “Twilight”’s Bella has been a popular name but this year it’s another young adult franchise that’s getting everyones’ attention – “The Hunger Games.” One of the characters took the number one spot on a preview list of what’s going to be hot this year, while a second name from the series also made it onto their radar. I think you’ll be surprised at the results. Read more…

The Katniss Everdeen Barbie

We admit it! We greeted the announcement of a “Hunger Games” Barbie with a little skepticism. Okay, a lot of skepticism. The secondary marketing for the movie (which took first place at the box office for the third weekend in a row this weekend, beating “Titanic‘s 3D” rerelease and yet another “American Pie” movie, grossing more than $450 million globally so far) has ridden a surprisingly satirical line by speaking to its audience as if they were citizens of the hedonistic, voyeuristic Capitol; casting those who would excitedly anticipate The Hunger Games as those who would excitedly anticipate the Hunger Games. 

A Katniss Barbie, however, seemed outside of that particular merchandizing plan. We feared the transformation of Katniss Everdeen into a Barbie doll in much the same way that Katniss is transformed into a dressed up Capitol plaything, but it appears what we’ve actually gotten looks more like an action figure than anything else.

  • Jerky movie critics are whining that Jennifer Lawrence had too much “lingering baby fat” to play Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games,” a character who is supposed to be desperately hungry. Yes, “fat” is exactly what I think when I look at this picture. [NYMag.com]
  • Geraldo Rivera apologized for his insensitive tweet last week, which said that 17-year-old Trayvon Martin’s hoodie “is as much responsible” for his murder “as George Zimmerman was.” (Don’t make us make fun of your mustache, dude.) “I have obscured the main point that someone shot and killed an unarmed teenager,” Geraldo wrote in a letter to the news site Politico. “I apologize to anyone offended by what one prominent black conservative called my ‘very practical and potentially life-saving campaign urging black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies.’” In other news, Geraldo has black friends.
