The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Burns Hotter Than Its Predecessor

The consequences of war are far-reaching and come fast in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the sequel to box office juggernaut The Hunger Games. Based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling novels about a teenage girl’s fight against an oppressive, sadistic government, the thrilling Catching Fire brings out strong themes of inequality, the politics of fear, and the psychological impact of battle on people of all ages. Fully engrossing, and far stronger than its forerunner, Catching Fire keeps the sense of suspense throughout with a few dips, and backs up its plot content with plenty of action to hold audience interest. The two-hour-and-fifteen-minute run time hardly feels like it, when you’re swept away by the despotic world of Francis Lawrence’s Panem.

Do not volunteer. There are SPOILERS behind the cut.

This LEGO Batman Movie Is The LEGO Batman Movie We Need [Trailer]

Batman got all of the DC Comics heroes to join him for the sequel to his first LEGO video game, Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, but how would you like to sit back, relax, and watch their crazy hijinks without having to lift a finger? Now you can thanks to LEGO Batman The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite…which I had no idea was happening until now (apparently it was announced at NYCC). However, we did know Batman and Superman would be making an appearance in the LEGO movie hitting theaters February 2014 called Lego: The Piece of Resistance (starring Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, and Elizabeth Banks). While a lot of these scenes will look familiar to you, they are straight from the game, it is legit and will be released on blu-ray, DVD and digital download in early 2013. Are you excited?
