'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' begins shooting in Georgia, before moving to Hawaii

The 75th annual Hunger Games are on!

Lionsgate announced Monday that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has officially started production in and around Atlanta, Ga., with director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) at the helm, before moving to shoot in Hawaii. Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson are, of course, reprising their respective roles as winning tributes Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark; Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland are all also returning, with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone, and Amanda Plummer joining the franchise. Shooting is set to conclude in December.

Intriguingly, the announcement was notable for what it didn’t mention as much as what it did. READ FULL STORY

'Red Dawn' trailer: Peeta and Gale's brother join forces to repel [blank] invasion

In 1984, America’s cold war with the Soviet Union was heating up again. Soviet troops were in Afghanistan, the countries had traded petty Olympic boycotts, and President Ronald Reagan was calling the Soviet Union an “evil empire.” It was the perfect time for Red Dawn, an action adventure that pitted wholesome American teenagers (Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson) against a Soviet/Cuban invasion of the United States. Obviously, we won. (The Berlin Wall’s fall was inevitable after the Wolverines’ heroic victory.)

The times have certainly changed, but Red Dawn is back, with Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson taking to the streets to beat back the invaders. They are still the Wolverines, and the trailer includes a favorite scene from the original where the kids ambush some enemy soldiers by popping out of covered trenches. But who are they fighting again? Russians? Nope. Cubans? Uh-uh. Chinese! Holy iPods, bite your tongue! Um, North Koreans? Bingo! The North Koreans are coming! The North Koreans are coming! And this time, it is no police action!! READ FULL STORY

'Red Dawn' first look: Thor and Peeta fight some Commies -- PHOTOS

The first images of Red Dawn — the remake of John Milius’ 1984 nationalistic ode to the Second Amendment and finally kicking the USSR out of Colorado — have hit the ‘net after a long, long wait. The film had been held back for years due to MGM’s financial difficulties, and in the meantime its primary villains were given a quick makeover, switching from the Chinese to a country where nobody buys movie tickets: North Korea. Also in the meantime, stars like Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson made it big with roles in huge franchises.

“I saw it the other day and I was like, ‘Oh, right, I made this!’” joked Hemsworth to EW last week, talking about making the film before he had much experience in Hollywood. “It had this school camp feel. We were all from somewhere else and we were all excited about the adventure we were about to go on. It was like going to a new school, it’s just that at this school, we were shooting at people.”

Cannes 2012 preview: Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, and Kristen Stewart bring Hollywood glitz to the French Riviera -- VIDEO

Since its inception in 1947, the Cannes Film Festival has been the ne plus ultra of international cinema, but rarely has the festival featured quite so many American filmmakers and Hollywood movie stars. The 2012 Cannes festival gets underway on Wednesday with the opening film, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, and over the course of the subsequent 11 days, the festival will premiere films starring (deep breath) Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Stewart, Zac Efron, Shia LaBeouf, Robert Pattinson, Kirsten Dunst, Tom Hardy, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, and Matthew McConaughey (in two movies!), with filmmakers like Anderson, Lee Daniels, and John Hillcoat screening their films in competition for the first time. Meanwhile, DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted and the HBO TV movie Hemingway & Gellhorn are both premiering out of competition.

EW’s Owen Gleiberman will be detailing all his thoughts on the great and not so great at Cannes, but here’s a quick primer on what’s likely to light up the famed Croisette, in chronological order of their big premieres inside the cavernous Grand Théâtre Lumière.  READ FULL STORY

'7 Days in Havana' trailer: Josh Hutcherson stars in anthology portrait of modern Cuba

After Paris, je t’aime and New York, I Love You, it’s fast becoming an indie film staple: The loving portrait of a modern cosmopolitan city as an ensemble feature-length anthology film, comprised of more-or-less discrete chapters helmed by different, internationally flavored directors. 7 Days in Havana turns our attention to the Cuban capital, with each short film comprising a day of the week. Actor Benicio Del Toro helms the first segment, “El Yuma,” starring The Hunger Games‘ Josh Hutcherson as a young actor on a whirlwind tour of the famed city. The other segments are helmed by Pablo Trapero (Lion’s Den), Julio Médem (Sex and Lucía), Elia Suleiman (The Time that Remains), Gaspar Noé (Enter the Void), Juan Carlos Tabío (Strawberry and Chocolate), and Laurent Cantet (The Class).

'Detention' trailer: See Josh Hutcherson fight for his life...again

Before Josh Hutcherson became cake icer/camouflage expert/fake boyfriend extraordinaire Peeta Mellark, he starred in Detention, a Scream/Breakfast Club mashup that took SXSW by storm last year. The film is set to hit 10 AMC theaters on April 13 — just in time to appease Boy with the Bread fanatics who are suffering from Hunger Games withdrawal.

Check out a trailer for Hutcherson’s high school horror comedy — which also stars Shanley Caswell, Spencer Locke, and Dane Cook, of all people, as a surely doomed principal — below. Think this film will contain enough Hutch to calm your post-Hunger pangs?
