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.

Looks Like Zombieland Might be Getting that Television Show After All

Did you know that one of the conditions Woody Harrelson demanded for accepting his role in Zombieland was that director Ruben Fleischer go without eating dairy products for a week?

Did you know that Zombieland is the highest grossing zombie movie the United States has ever paid money for?

Did you know that it was initially going to be a television show?

Well, either way, it might reach that goal anyway.

Oh My Stars and Garters

What Did the Jennifer Lawrence Say to the Woody Harrelson (When She Met Him for the First Time)?

I was so nervous. I had been practicing what I was going to say in my trailer because I couldn’t decide if I was going to go with ‘Hey, how are ya, I’m Jen!’ or ‘Hi Woody, it’s such an honor to meet you, I’m Jennifer.’ I went over it and over it on the way walking to his bus, muttering to myself ‘Should I go with Jen or Jennifer? Should I say I’m Katniss. No he probably already knows that…’

I walked into his bus to introduce myself and the first words that just fell out of my mouth were [this next spoiler is rated R] ‘Is that a sex swing?!Jennifer Lawrence, on meeting costar Woody Harrelson for the first time.
