Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

I didn't read The Hunger Games or its sequels. When the first film came to theaters, I had heard a whole lot of people talking about the books, but I didn't know anything beyond the "It's pretty much Battle Royale" premise. When the fi...

Nick's Top 10 Movie Music Moments of 2014

Music plays an integral role in film. Easily ignored, easily forgotten, a film's soundtrack is the little celebrated framework of cinema. But when sound and sight marry into a great scene, you get some of the best moments. Like in 2013, 201...

Nick's Top 5 Sequels of 2014

We've seen more sequels released the last few years than we have in a long time. While 2015 seems to continue that trend, last year showed that we shouldn't automatically write off a film just because it's a sequel. I've seen so many good s...

Here's that great Hanging Tree song from Mockingjay- Part 1

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 was pretty good. It's the best in a rough series and stands out due to some great decisions. But one of the clunkier ones was "The Hanging Tree." A song featured in the book, it was in the middle ...

Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

The Hunger Games has come a long way. From humble meh-ish beginnings, to a sequel that, well, caught fire in theaters, the films have gotten increasingly better the more comfortable everyone gets with the material. Going into the latest, Mo...

New Hunger Games: Catching Fire TV spot and clip released

If you didn't quite enjoy the first Hunger Games flick (like me, and unlike everyone else at Flixist, apparently), and was hoping the fast-approaching sequel would be more palatable, boy, do these clips not help. Apple has 40 un-...


See Catching Fire early and free

New Catching Fire images show off, well, everyone

Julianne Moore cast as Alma Coin in Hunger Games movies

The cast for the Hunger Games movies reads more like an Oscar nominated drama than a series of science fiction films based on young adult novels. Lionsgate has been pulling top-shelf actors in left and right and today they've announced...


International trailer for Catching Fire doesn't spoil

You have to give it to the marketing department behind the Hunger Game's movies. They know how to put together some trailers that don't spoil the movie. I'm sure it helps that the first two books are front loaded with quality dramatic stuf...


New Catching Fire posters are figure flattering

A slew of new posters for  The Hunger Games: Catching Fire have just popped up across the web and they show off the returning champions back once again to compete. Looks like they'll be competing in skin tight outfits. They're all...


Kevin Tancharoen had a Hunger Games pitch, was too cool

Kevin Tancharoen, the same guy who did the Mortal Kombat: Rebirth pitch video and Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, once pitched an idea for the Hunger Games adaptation, according to an interview with /Film. Like Joe Carnahan's sadly shut down D...

Target's 'Hunger Games' replicas assume we all have money

Adding to the list of things we can't afford, Target has announced a 14K gold replica of Katniss Everdeen's Mockingjay pin that will cost you 999 dollars. I don't think I've ever seen that many nines put together without a decimal point in ...

Hunger Games needs more money, returning to IMAX

The Hunger Games only saw a single week at IMAX theaters nationwide, and during that one week, the film made $13.2 million. That's a lot of money to sponsor your favorite Tributes. Now, IMAX and Lionsgate have announced the film will s...

X-Men sequel shoots in January with Jennifer Lawrence

With Hunger Games becoming a major international hit, there was some question as to how Jennifer Lawrence would fit the planned X-Men: First Class sequel into her schedule. Fox originally wanted to shoot in the autumn, potentially getting i...


Gary Ross not necessarily a lock for Catching Fire

Given the insane financial and critical success of The Hunger Games, you would think Lionsgate would be chomping at the bit to keep the Gold Bricks and Hookers Train a-movin' with Gary Ross at the writing and directing wheel for the se...


New Hunger Games clip shows off Katniss' archery skills

We're getting ever closer to the March 23rd release of Gary Ross' much anticipated adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novel, The Hunger Games, which means the movie's publicity machine is starting to build up a head of steam. Following a prett...


Trailer 2: The Hunger Games

Final poster for The Hunger Games lands

Nope. Still haven't read The Hunger Games, and since we're only nine weeks away from the film's release I probably won't be able to thanks to the stack of books I have in front of me right now to read before I get to them. Maybe some rearra...

Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment in talks for merger

This could potentially be a very big deal. Lionsgate Entertainment and Summit Entertainment are currently in early negotiations for a possible merger. There are few details, as these are, again, early negotiations, but this h...


New Hunger Games image with more bow and arrows

The title for this post should be "New Hunger Games image still leaves world in the dark," because despite its March 2012 release date, we have barely seen anything of the project. This is especially weird considering that the people who ar...


8 new Hunger Games posters released

I don't know that much about the series of Hunger Games books by Suzanne Collins, but from the little I've heard, it seems pretty rad. The upcoming movie adaption will follow the story in the books, which features a dystopian society w...


Danny Elfman to score Hunger Games and Oz
