Here are some rebel character posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

So these posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (out November 21st) are neat as they finally show off Cressida (who manages all the propaganda in the book), but I DON'T KNOW WHO THE REST OF THESE PEOPLE ARE. Enjoy!  [via Wired]

District 13 character posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Have you been enjoying The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1's minimalist advertising campaign so far? I definitely am, but it seems like the uniqueness is done with. Now that we've gotten our first proper teaser, we're proba...

I'm loving the advertising campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 so far. Continuing on with the minimalist teasers is the Comic-Con trailer which contains the first actual footage from the film. Not much is said, but a lot is teased. If I had one qualm about the footage, it's going to take me a bit to get used to Julianne Moore's hair/wig. But I hope that discomfort goes away since I'm still not used to looking at Lawrence's fake hair. 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 releases November 21st. Here's the cool Comic-Con poster.

Second The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 teaser keeps the propaganda going

Continuing on with the awesome propaganda-like campaign, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 gives us another President Snow address. This time, however. He's joined by several surprising guests. Once again, this is both a...

First teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is cooler than you'd expect
by Nick Valdez

Rather than go for the conventional teaser trailer that we run on the site everyday, our first look at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is much better than I expected. A unique twist on the viral propaganda campaign the film has been running for the last few months, here we have a message from President Snow (Donald Sutherland) explaining why The Capitol is so important. 

If you've read the books, you understand why Snow's with a certain guest in the video. If you haven't then you're going to have so many questions. A cool delivery with a teased mystery? That's the perfect way to make teaser trailers, folks. More please. 

Expect a more conventional trailer to pop up soon given that we're five months away from the film's release. I liked Catching Fire enough, so I can't wait for more. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 releases November 21st.

It feels like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire came out just yesterday. With the final book in the series, Mockingjay, being split into two parts, expect one final push for The Hunger Games. Although The Hunger Games: Moc...

Review: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
by Nick Valdez

I'm a pretty big fan of The Hunger Games series of books. I tore through them in a day and while Catching Fire isn't my favorite in the series, it does have the most intriguing setups in the trilogy. The production for Catching Fire has notably gone through a bit of trouble with its change of directors (now helmed by Francis Lawrence), and most fans (including myself) were worried about the nature of the adaptation given the original Hunger Games film had a fair share of problems. 

The trailers for Catching Fire showed a film that seemed to learn from its predecessor's mistakes (less shaky cam footage, more balanced use of color, Phillip Seymour Hoffman joined the cast), so does the final product hold up to the potential of the series? Is The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hotter than a fantasy or is it filled with catastrophe? Read on for the answer!

Lionsgate considering a Hunger Games theme park

The Hunger Games series is an odd duck. It's incredibly popular while managing to be one of the darker teen stories on the market. At base level it's a series in which children murder each other for the enjoyment of rich onlo...

Final Trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire photo
Final Trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
by Nick Valdez

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire already looks much better than its predecessor. It's got a nice mix of orange and blues, less shaky cam, Phillip Seymour Hoffman plays a bad guy, and Jennifer Lawrence is so hot right now. Now we have the final trailer for the film, and how does it look? 

Well the same, really. It just spoils a lot of the film's bigger points from the book (but you wouldn't know that if you've only seen the movies, so that's probably cool). Basically, it's nice and short, but if you didn't want to see the film, the final trailer's not going to convince. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire sets the world on fire November 22nd.

Trailer: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

I took a bullet for all of you. Tonight (or last night depending on when you see this) I watched through the MTV Movie Awards (and its multiple Ted nominations for some reason) just so I could grab this teaser for all of you. Should I have? Maybe not, but I'm super excited for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The sequel leads off right where the first film ends. Katniss and Peeta are currently in a Victory Tour across the 12 Districts until the 75th Hunger Games (known as the Quarter Quell) forces them to re-compete against past champions. The teaser looks brilliant. Phillip Seymour Hoffman gets a few lines (which automatically makes it better), not a hint of shakycam in sight, and somewhere along the line the sequel seems to have fixed the narrative problems the first had. Can't wait until November 22nd. I threw a couple of new images in the gallery below. Check those out as well.
