It’s been awhile since we have done a weekly news roundup, but there is so much Hunger Games news to report in the last week that we figured it was better to just link out to some of our favorite stories than to try to duplicate it ourselves. Except the news at the very bottom of the post….which you will have to read to in order to find out!

All new posters are being released! As part of the “Faces of the Revolution” campaign, you can see pictures of many of the final movie characters in war paint. This article from Entertainment weekly shows one of our favorites, Gale Hawthorne.


We’re starting to see some stills from the final movie, including this incredibly moving picture of Effie and Katniss. (from MTV and Entertainment Weekly)


Conan O’Brien will be covering Comic-Con starting July 8. Be sure to tune in for visits from the cast of The Hunger Games on July 9. Jennifer, Josh, and Liam should all be there. It will be followed by the Comic-Con panel on Thursday, which will be moderated by Conan.


If you have read Mockingjay, you know that there are some MAJOR things to come in the final movie. Do you think that any of them will be changed from the book? Moviepilot discusses some of the things that they think will shock viewers.


Lionsgate has selected San Francisco as the second stop for its “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition” following a six-month run at Discovery Times Square in New York City.

Speaking of the Hunger Games Exhibition, we were lucky enough to be able to attend it in New York the second day after it opened. Not only did we bring back some great pictures, but also some merchandise to give away! Stay tuned to our blog for more information coming this week.


It is finally here! The release of “The Hunger Games Mockingjay: Part 1″ is tonight! Let’s get the weekly news out of the way right now so that we can start focusing on all of the great reviews that are sure to come out from the fans starting in the next 24 hours. Here’s some of the news that we have been tracking in the last week.

The effects of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s loss probably won’t be felt until next year, when The Hunger Games franchise finally wraps with Mockingjay: Part 2 . That means we will have similar discussions about the work he did on the franchise, and our chance to say goodbye to this acting titan, a year from now.

Earlier this week, Republic Records released the official audio for Dead Air by CHVRCHES, which reminded of the 80s and inspired them to create a 1980s soundtrack for Mockingjay.


Get ready to see a new Hunger Games sketch or two on Saturday Night Live soon. Woody Harrelson, who stars in the popular film franchise, has been tapped to host SNL on Nov. 15.


In the upcoming issue of Empire magazine, director Francis Lawrence spoke a bit about THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 1 and given that the Harry Potter franchise will see at least three spinoff films, Lawrence discussed whether or not something like that may be a possibility for the Hunger Games as well.

Just in case you don’t already have your own copy, it’s good to know that you will be able to watch The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on Netflix as of October 22.

Lorde has been teasing us with the first lyrics from the new Mockingjay soundtrack. ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ will be released September 29.


Lots of fun stuff this week for Hunger Games fans. The most exciting news was probably the poster release, but it is also fun to hear from the actors themselves what they have to say about Mockingjay.

Lionsgate finally revealed the first poster featuring Katniss for Mockingjay, through the OLTM mobile app. The image was accompanied with the caption: “Our leader the Mockingjay arrives on 9/10.”


It may be a slightly tenuous record – but Lawrence deserves some good news after her recent travails. Katniss is named highest-grossing action movie heroine by Guinness.


Mockingjay promises to have some extra Effie scenes for us. Great news for Effie fans! What do you think about the extra Effie scenes added to the movie that were not in the book?
