• 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

We saw teaselet for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘s first official trailer earlier this week, but the full cornucopia of goodness spilled out during the final moments of tonight’s MTV Movie Awards — complete with a literally fiery intro by star Liam Hemsworth. Was it worth the wait? Watch and decide for yourself below. READ FULL STORY
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…”

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
'Red Dawn' clip: Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson set trap for pesky invading North Koreans -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
In Red Dawn, our country contends with a surprise invasion by North Korea, who infiltrate and occupy a town in Washington state. Only a rag-tag group of teenagers — including Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, and Josh Peck — have escaped to stop them. (The film is a remake of the 1984 Cold War cult favorite starring Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Lea Thompson, and Jennifer Grey, in which the invading force was from the Soviet Union.)
In this exclusive clip from the film, Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights) lures several North Korean soldiers into a clever trap set by her compatriots. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
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
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
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.”

For those of you who aren’t at Comic-Con, fear not. EW has an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from The Hunger Games that just premiered at a Comic-Con panel.
The video is a closer look at the scene where Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is tied in a tree, and the fire starts to surround her. Watch director Gary Ross and stunt coordinator Chad Stahelski block out and show Lawrence the path she has to run, and watch how close Lawrence actually gets to the fire. Katniss would be proud.
