The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Theatrical PosterThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Based on the Novel by Suzanne Collins
Lionsgate
Rated PG-13 | 146 Minutes

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens up just as Katniss and Peeta, the winners of the 74th Hunger Games, are preparing to go on their victory tour of the 12 Districts and Capital of Panem and trying to find a rhythm to their now dual lives – the theatrical star-crossed lovers while in the spotlight and the barely acquaintances when the camera is off in their ever-dwindling private lives. As their tour begins, the pair sees from district to district signs of rebellion and discourse against the Capital by the citizens, the unplanned consequence of their televised defiance against the game’s rules during the events of The Hunger Games.

Catching Fire

The action sequences for The Hunger Games weren’t necessarily the best mostly because of the shaky camera scenes and jarring transitions. Hopefully director Francis Lawrence can learn from those mistakes and create a more fluid action sequence that is easier on the eyes. Lawrence is currently overseeing production for the film and as it gets closer to wrapping up shooing, one of the film’s stars, Josh Hutcherson, is speaking out about what we will see and how it will look on IMAX.

We’ve recently learned that some of the film’s action sequences will be shot using IMAX cameras. The success of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and the final two films of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy has set a trend for blockbuster films to use the technology in its rawest form.

EPIC

A new trailer for Epic, an animated film that follows the secret lives of forest beings protecting their sacred land from a force that seeks to destroy it, has been released.

A teenage girl spending time at a relative’s house gets shrunken down to their size and joins the forces of the forest dwellers to help them save the forest world and her world as well. Sure it may sound like a revamped version of Ferngully, but Epic doesn’t look like anything the Blue Sky has done before. The studio also worked on the Ice Age franchise and RIO.

Check out the latest trailer below.

Catching Fire

There is going to be a very familiar tune when you take a look at the new motion poster for the highly anticipated The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Production for the new Francis Lawrence-directed film should be nearing completion. In two days we will be a year way from the film’s release, so the Lionsgate marketing team has decided to release the brand new poster now.

Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, and Donald Sutherland will all be joined by newcomers Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Lynn Cohen, Alan Ritchson, Sam Claflin and Jeffrey Wright. With a new poster out, this could mean that a teaser trailer is not too far behind. Lionsgate will release The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in IMAX on November 22, 2013. Check out the new motion poster below.

Lionsgate Home Entertainment
RELEASE DATE: August 17, 2012

Before a movie adaptation of The Hunger Games was announced, I knew not one thing about it, not even the title. Going into finally seeing the movie for myself, I knew it was based on a wildly popular book series and whatever small story and character tidbits picked up while writing about various casting news and such. This is how I prefer going into any movie, whether it be an adaptation or sequel or completely original, so that there is no expectation whatsoever.

The premise is simple, yet also quite brutal. After an apocalyptic event transforms North America, a wealthy government called the Capitol takes total control over the less-wealthy people and forms them into thirteen districts. After an uprising by the people ultimately results in the destruction of one of the districts, an unthinkable punishment is put into effect to keep everyone in check: each year, one boy and one girl ages 12-18 from each of the twelve districts will be selected at random to compete in the Hunger Games, where all 24 will fight to the death until only one remains.

Sam Claflin Image

A short time ago it was reported that Sam Claflin had entered into talks to take on the role of Finnick Odair in the highly anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire.

Claflin had been on a shortlist of actors wanted for the role that also included Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund.

Now comes word that the actor has officially signed on to play Finnick, a “charismatic” and “clever” resident of District 4 who won the Hunger Games when he was only 14 years of age.

Watch This Trailer For Dan Bradley’s Remake Of ‘Red Dawn’

Chris Hemsworth in Red Dawn

Since the Red Dawn remake was finished two years ago, Josh Hutcherson became a participant of The Hunger Games, Chris Hemsworth became a humbled hammer-wielding demi-god and a member of The Avengers, Jeffery Dean Morgan became a hotel owner mixed up in mob affairs, and Adraianne Palicki became a member of G.I. Joe. But before all of that, they were Wolverines and after seeing a couple of promotional images, we now have our first trailer for Red Dawn. And you know what, it doesn’t look half bad, even if the film had been shelved for two years. Check it out below.

Like the first Red Dawn film, this remake centers on a group of youthful citizens and a capable soldier as they fight to regain control of their small town from the hands of international enemies, in this case, it’s the North Koreans. As you can see, they will be severely out numbered, out classed, and out gunned, but that won’t stop them. Based on the trailer alone, the new Red Dawn looks like one of those fun popcorn action flicks.

Red Dawn Cast Header

What a difference a couple of years make. After sitting on a shelf for the better part of two years, the remake of Red Dawn hits theaters this Thanksgiving. The film features a new generation of American’s youth defending their land against the forces of the North Koreans. Originally the film’s antagonists were the Chinese, but the film was digitally altered so that the antagonists would be North Koreans. We previously posted two new images from the film, and now we got our first look at the poster for Red Dawn, which looks like one of the options you would see on an instagram photo. Check it out below.

As you can see, MGM and Open Road are slowly pushing out the promotional material for the film. With this poster, this brings out print promotions to a grand total of four (the header image above, the two images, and now this poster). So if you are tired of photos and are just itching to see a trailer for the film, then you’re in luck, because the first trailer for the Red Dawn remake premieres tomorrow.
