Those of us who’ve read Suzanne Collins’ book series know the characters we met at the beginning of The Hunger Games certainly aren’t the characters we get when we start Catching Fire. But how will they change in Francis Lawrence’s film adaptation? A recent magazine feature gives a few insights.

I’m one of those people who thinks the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise should have ended a while ago but seeing as how they are cash cows at the international box office, they’re still being churned out. The most recent news on that front is a writer has been chosen for Pirates 5. His credits include Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull and Speed 2: Cruise Control.

We’re not sure how intense the search was to find an actor for the role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire but for fans, it was nerve-wracking. Everyone had a different idea of what this god-like creature must look like in order to match what they imagined while reading the book. Eventually, it was Snow White and the Huntsman star Sam Claflin who secured the coveted role and he admits he wasn’t sure he was up to the task in the looks department.

The last time we saw anything from the set of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was back at the beginning of October and that was only one lousy picture. Before that was September with just a few quick glimpses but today, we’ve got something of substance. A liquid kind of substance if you know what I mean. Click through to see Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Sam Claflin, and Lynn Cohen give it their all during filming in Hawaii for Catching Fire. And yes, Finnick’s special weapon makes an appearance as well. YOU GUYS, I CAN’T WAIT!!!

And, well, it’s exactly who it was rumored to be a month ago. Was that so hard, Lionsgate? You couldn’t have just announced it when the cat first came out of the bag? You really shouldn’t keep trying to stuff cats back into small enclosed spaces, PETA might get upset.
But, most of us expected but probably hadn’t fully accepted, it’s official: Sam Claflin is our Finnink Odair.

It’s probably not the confirmed casting news you’ve been hoping for, but Lynn Cohen, a stage and film actress best known for her role as Magda in HBO’s Sex and the City, will play the lovable 80-year-old Mags, a former Hunger Games victor from District 4.

A Monster’s Inc prequel, the possibility of a Hocus Pocus sequel; we’ve already been struck by how hard the film industry has been working recently to hit twenty-s0methings in the nostalgia spot. Now we’re even more convinced. Why? Because they’re making a sequel to the 2003 Pixar sea-romp Finding Nemo. Director Andrew Stanton has already signed on.
But considering Nemo was *SPOILER ALERT* found at the end of the first film, we’re wondering how they’re gonna play this one. Is he gonna “find” himself emotionally as a teenager fish? Finding Emo? (via MTV)

We’re sorry to do this to you again. A lot of names have been thrown around for the role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and the District 4 tribute just might be the most anticipated new cast member in the entire film, but do we finally have the answer? Both of these men, Tony Shalhoub and Sam Claflin, are being courted for the Lionsgate film. Hit the jump to find out who they could be playing.

It’s not very often that a trailer for something makes you completely rethink the movie it’s advertising. We’ll admit, we were a little wary of Snow White and the Huntsman at first, especially when Kristen Stewart was cast as this apparent “warrior” Snow White. But wow. Kristen Stewart is a warrior Snow White. And Charlize Theron is a terrifying evil queen. Terrifying. The trailer, after the jump.
