First look Alicia Vikander as new Lara Croft, Tomb Raider

It's been a long time and many children later since Angelina Jolie donned the tank top and short shorts of Lara Croft, the Tomb Raider. So, needless to say, we are owed, nay due a remake, or a reboot, or a relaunch, or something. I forgot o...

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...

New Mockingjay trailer teases all-out war

The first big Mockingjay trailer debuted last month at Comic-Con, but now the rest of us plebs get to scope it out too. Our biggest glimpse yet at the franchise's big finale (well, until they convince Suzanne Collins to write a prequel movi...

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...

Final trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

With the final trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, the awesome marketing this film has had comes to a close. From great propaganda style teasers and posters, to how few trailers for the film we actually got (usually we're told...

Comic-Con trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

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 ...

First images of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

I've been a little hesitant toward the next film in the Hunger Games series ever since it was announced Mockingjay would be split into two parts. Mockingjay is my favorite in the trilogy (the first half anyway, go figure), and the more...

First Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I poster is on fire

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: Mockingjay - Part ...

Review: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

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 not...

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-...

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 onlookers as they s...

Final Trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

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 fi...

New Catching Fire images show off, well, everyone

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been hard on the marketing blitz all year so this deluge of new images that just landed isn't really breaking any new ground, but it is the first time we can easily look at every single character so ...

Second Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer is hungry

When the first teaser for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiered during the MTV Movie Awards, I was pleased with what I had seen. A notable bump in narrative quality, camerawork, and just all around coolness. Does the second trailer do ...

UPDATE: Even more Catching Fire character portraits

UPDATE 2: We now have Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (one of the Thor brothers) and Finnick (Sam Claflin) portraits in the gallery! And they all look appropriately attractive. This is probably it. If not, expect another update as this gets c...
