Shailene Woodley Won’t Be Having Any Of Your Pitting-Ladies-Against-Ladies Nonsense

“If my character [from Divergent] and Katniss from The Hunger Games battled it out? I don’t know. I don’t feel like they would actually battle. I feel like it’d be like, ‘You’re a strong lady? I’m a strong lady, too. Let’s combine forces and bring it together.’”Shailene Woodley in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, providing us with the YA version of that time Amy Adams said she’d rather Lois Lane and Wonder Woman work together to get stuff done instead of fighting over some dude, y’know? Or when Jessica Chastain called out the media for perpetuating “the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along” when people were talking about a (made up) feud between her and Jennifer Lawrence. Ovaries before brovaries!

Man Repaints Catching Fire Katniss Barbie So It Looks Exactly Like Jennifer Lawrence

We posted the spectacular Noel Cruz’s work before. He has a knack for turning what are terribly disappointing depictions of actors’ doll counterparts and creating what could almost be a mirror image. His latest masterpiece? Jennifer Lawerence’s Katniss Everdeen. Check out a few more shots and find out how you can own it after the jump.

Jennifer Lawrence on the Way She Most Identifies With Katniss in Catching Fire

It’s hard to say you identify with someone who’s facing life and death and war. It’s not like, ‘Oh my God that’s, like, totally how I feel.’ But there is the connection in that she doesn’t feel like just part of the town anymore. Now everyone treats her as a celebrity… Whereas she still feels like she’s part of them. I get that a lot. I’ll go to get a coffee where I always get coffee and all of a sudden there’s this weird mood, and I’m like, ‘Come on, I still get coffee here, just say hello.’ – Jennifer Lawrence

It’s one thing to have an incredibly popular book about an intensely televised and obsessed over reality show where contestants are expected to be as beautiful and deadly as possible regardless of their true personalities. But once you bring that story to film, it takes on an entirely new metatextual level that’s fascinating to explore.

Katniss Thinks She’ll Stand For Her Official Capitol Portrait, Thank You Very Much

We’ve previously seen Catching Fire portraits of Effie, Haymitch, and Caesar; now it’s time for Katniss, Cinna, and new character Beetee (played by Jeffrey Wright) to take center stage.

Cinna and Beetee are behind the jump. I’m shedding a single perfect tear over the lack of an official portrait of Seneca Crane’s glorious beard.

Since our first official look at The Hunger Games: Catching Fire came out yesterday we’ve had several tidbits about the film cross our path, among them a pair of new pictures and confirmation from director Francis Lawrence of three characters who didn’t make the jump from page to screen.

So who got the axe? (Or spear, à la Rue… oh, sorry, too soon?) And what was that about new pictures? Hit the jump to find out.

First Time Lionsgate Has Two Films Make Over $125 Million In The Same Year They Do It With Female Leads

There’s been a lot of talk about how Hollywood doesn’t believe female-led films will make money at the box office and that’s why so few are made. This year not only proved them wrong, it proved them wrong in a big way. Indie studio Lionsgate has done something they’ve never done before – in 2012, they had two films both make over $125 million in North American theaters. The films? The Hunger Games and Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
