Nathan Fillion Is Hermes In The New Percy Jackson Movie

Ok, so I didn’t see the first Percy Jackson movie but Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters might have piqued my interest. And not just because Nathan Fillion and Glimmer (Leven Rambin) and Caesar (Stanley Tucci) from The Hunger Games are in it. Ok, mostly that.

The Next Catching Fire Character Gets A Capitol Portrait, Plus New York Loves The Hunger Games

We know The Hunger Games trilogy is great but apparently, one city just can’t get enough of it. New York! And just yesterday we showed you Effie Trinket’s fabulous Capitol Portrait. Many fans guessed the empty yellow chair would be filled by none other than Caesar Flickerman. Were they right? 


Fact From the Vapor of Nuance

Okay, So Maybe Hayley Atwell Is in Captain America: The Winter Soldier?

A month ago, Hayley Atwell told an interviewer that she would not be returning for Captain America: Winter Soldier, and just a few weeks ago we heard that Emily VanCamp had been tapped for the role of Sharon Carter, the niece of Atwell’s Peggy Carter.

But it seems perhaps that Peggy Carter may not be as absent from Captain America: Winter Soldier as Atwell implied.

New Animated Posters For The Hunger Games Feature Cinna’s Famed Gold Eyeliner

Call me a recovering makeup junkie, but one of my favorite tiny details about Suzanne CollinsThe Hunger Games was Cinna’s eyeliner. The Capitol crew were so ridiculously festooned with dyed skin, crazy haircolors, glittery tattoos, etc, all of it making the trips there some of the most interesting parts of the book to read, even the grotesque President Snow. (Especially when contrasted to the bleak and humble Districts.) But Cinna’s lone streak of gold eyeliner stood out for me, and so did Cinna as a character. All of that said, one of the best parts about this series being turned into a movie was seeing how the weirdos in the Capitol were going to be brought to life. We’ve seen a glimpse in the trailers, but now, the movie’s official site has released some animated posters (in the guise of self-referential, silly advertisements), to give us a new look at this colorful bunch.

Things We Saw Today: Mr. Tea

Thanks to Best Week Ever I now know there’s a Mr. T tea set. It was created by British designer Matt Jones and comes with cup and saucer, a golden stirrer and sugar cubes, and an adorable Mr. T sticking out of the top.



Consider Your Period Piece Blown to Pieces: Captain America: The First Avenger


You’ve got to hand it to Marvel for figuring a few things out recently. While their Big Two competitor gleefully jettisons 70 years of questionable costume changes and Kraft single one-liners, Marvel’s gone back to their roots with stellar results. Their streak continues with the good old new-fashioned Captain America. Retro is always in style, and a dose of gee-wizardry can go a long way, particularly if you’re harkening to old school heroics for summer box-office fun. Don’t call Captain America a period piece, though; it’ll knock your period to pieces. Sincere, fun, and earnest without verging on treacly, the Cap’s big trip to the big screen has a potent mix of the retro winking and newfangled action that is Golden Age adaptation at its best.
