President Snow addresses Panem in 'Mockingjay' teaser -- with a surprise guest

Mockingjay.jpg

“Since the dark days, our great nation has known only peace. Ours is an elegant system, conceived to nourish and protect,” Panem’s benevolent leader says smoothly as words like “unity” and “prosperity” appear on an all-white background. “Your districts are the body. The capital is the beating heart. Your hard work feeds us, and in return, we feed and protect you.”

Then the president’s latest propaganda video takes a turn. “But if you resist the system, you starve yourself,” Snow says, his tone a touch more sinister. “If you fight against it, it is you who will bleed.” Slowly, the camera pulls back to reveal that Snow’s not alone. He’s perched on a gleaming white throne—next to none other than kidnapped Hunger Games victor Peeta Mellark, stoically gazing off into the distance.

Shiver. The first official teaser for this fall’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 skillfully captures the mood of Suzanne Collins’s final Hunger Games book (which is bleaker, darker, and more Capitol-focused) despite containing zero footage from the upcoming movie. The wait for the new film may stretch on for months—but who can really complain, if Lionsgate uses that time to keep releasing ace promotional material like this teaser and yesterday’s stylish, district-focused posters?

'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' clip shows Katniss tearful and scared

Catching-Fire.jpg

Being in a life-saving fake relationship so you aren’t executed for being disloyal to the Capitol has its downsides.

As part of yesterday’s ‘Global Fan Day’ Facebook released a new clip from the The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The 39-second segment shows a tearful Katniss scared about choices she’s made, and worrying about how best to keep both herself and Peeta alive post-Victory Tour.

“This trip doesn’t end when you get back home,” Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) says after she asks for guidance. “You never get off this train. You’re a mentor now. You two are mentors now. From now on, your job is to be a distraction so people forget what their real problems are.”

Chilling. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire': See the first TV spot

Rejoice, citizens of Panem: Only 37 days remain before the 75th annual Hunger Games! And if the following advertisement is any indication, this year’s competition is going to be a doozy — filled with love triangles, fiery costumes, and some very sharp shooting.

(Translation: The first TV spot for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire debuted on Walmart’s Facebook page about 13 hours ago. It packs a lot of drama into one very tense minute, including angsty scenes for those on Team Peeta, Team Gale, and Team Prim. Wait, is anyone on Team Prim? In any case, check it out for yourself below.)

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire': Peeta can swim, and other changes from the book

First off, let Catching Fire director Frances Lawrence assure the ardent fans of Suzanne Collins Hunger Games series that their sacred text will always be honored: “The movie is very, very true to the book,” he says. But when he first met Collins last spring, the two hunkered down and hammered out a new beat sheet for the sequel. And together they were merciless about what wouldn’t serve the screenplay adaptation. Here’s three changes readers should expect in the film (in theaters November 22): READ FULL STORY

'Catching Fire' at Comic-Con: Jennifer Lawrence gets raw, Josh Hutcherson grows up -- VIDEO

Is it November yet? Hunger Games fans (especially the ones in San Diego) got a lot of treats Saturday, with the arrival of the most revealing Catching Fire trailer yet and a Comic-Con panel with the cast and crew.

And now we have even more Mockingjay goodness for you: EW’s Laura Hertzfeld caught up with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson — Katniss and Peeta themselves — along with their co-stars Jena Malone, Willow Shields, and Lenny Kravitz and director Francis Lawrence.

Jennifer revealed her dietary concerns on set — she’s not a fan of ripping into raw halibut — while Josh said Peeta has grown up a lot since his first Games.

Katniss and Peeta ready to dive into 'Catching Fire' with new arena uniforms

Katniss and Peeta are getting back in the arena for the 75th annual Hunger Games, and now we get to see their battle armor.

Yahoo! released exclusive images of the pair’s arena style (see them here), and the aquatic apparel is fit for much more water than the occasional stream or pond featured in the first book/movie. Katniss and her cohorts will find themselves swimming for their lives as they attempt to outwit the game makers in the Quarter Quell — a dastardly attempt by President Snow to get the Girl on Fire back in the line of fire.

The star-crossed lovers (or are they?) are in much better shape than they were when they set off as unlikely candidates from District 12 — and those skintight ensembles sure show off their assets.

See the other tributes in these exclusive images from around the web:

Casting Net: Zac Efron to play a 'college Donnie Brasco'; Plus Josh Hutcherson, Hayden Christensen, and more

• Zac Efron (17 Again) will play a college student-turned-police informant in Narc, described as a “college Donnie Brasco.” Efron’s character is a big man on campus type, but that’s where any similarity to his High School Musical basketball player ends. In Narc, Efron’s a frat president and lacrosse team captain until he’s busted for drugs. But then he takes a page from the books of Frank Abagnale and Neal Caffrey and puts his skills to use as a narc for the police. [Deadline] READ FULL STORY

'Hunger Games: Catching Fire': Check out official poster -- PHOTO

Residents of Panem, get ready. The Victory Tour has officially begun.

After winning the 74th annual Hunger Games, it’s only natural that Katniss and Peeta embark on the demanded tour to visit all the districts. And that’s just what the first official poster for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire depicts. The fun twist is that the poster is actually advertising the Victory Tour as opposed to the movie, something the Hunger Games’ official Facebook page is also playing along with. The Facebook page posted today, “The Capitol proudly announces the victors of the 74th annual Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen & Peeta Mellark, as they embark on this year’s Victory Tour! Stay tuned to The Capitol PN for updates…”

'Catching Fire' set photos: Jennifer Lawrence in the arena! (Plus: A peek at Finnick?)

The Catching Fire cast is currently filming in beautiful Hawaii, a setting which doesn’t seem to have much to do with grim dystopian Panem. But as readers of the Hunger Games books know [SPOILERS if you don't like reading, weirdo] the Arena that plays host to the 75th Hunger Games in Catching Fire has a body of water and a curious environmental climate which seems perfect for a tropical island. A photographer snapped some photos from the set, which feature a look at Jennifer Lawrence in her Quarter Quell outfit, Josh Hutcherson in the water, and a guy who appears to be Finnick acting very Finnick-y indeed. Look on! READ FULL STORY
