War is hell in the new 'Mockingjay' trailer

A full trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 is finally here, and it offers a look at the war-torn land Panem has become as well as a poor, brainwashed Peeta, now acting as a mouthpiece for President Snow.

In the trailer, Haymitch explains to Katniss that Peeta is the Capitol’s weapon, just like she is the rebels’. Katniss, however, uses Peeta’s plight as an ultimatum. “You will rescue Peeta at the earliest opportunity, or you will find another Mockingjay,” Katniss tells Julianne Moore’s President Alma Coin and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Plutarch Heavensbee.

The trailer also gives fleeting glimpses at characters old and new, including Natalie Dormer’s Cressida. Effie Trinket pins a mockingjay pendant on Katniss’s armor, Gale shows off his talent with a bow and arrow, and Finnick gives Katniss a worried glance. It all ends with Katniss shooting down a plane with her arrow. We’ve always known she has great aim. READ FULL STORY

Paradise Lost looks to tell the classic story of boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl… boy discovers girl’s uncle is famed Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar?

In the first trailer for the film, Josh Hutcherson’s character, surfer Nick Brady, goes on a trip with his brother to Colombia, only to fall in love with Claudia Traisac’s Maria. As the two grow closer, however, Maria introduces Nick to her uncle, Escobar, played by Benicio del Toro. Nick becomes embroiled in the drug lord’s cartel after seeing how the poor view Escobar as their Robin Hood. But, as the trailer shows, the dangers of moving such large amounts of cocaine could cost Nick his life. READ FULL STORY

'Mockingjay' director: Parts 1 and 2 will have 'two distinct stories'

MOCKINGJAY.jpg

Over the course of two Hunger Games films, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has been unflinchingly confident. But in Mockingjay – Part 1, the teen heroine suffers a bout of age-appropriate angst as she reluctantly becomes a rebel leader.

“It’s a very confusing, conflicted, complicated time for Katniss,” says director Francis Lawrence, who also directed 2013’s Catching Fire. “Having gone through the games one more time and having lost Peeta and having been run through the wringer, she’s even more damaged. So you find her in a more agitated place. She’s distraught, confused, angry.” READ FULL STORY

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

“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?

'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:
