They’ve started revolutions, fought unearthly beasts, and have been players in some pretty messed up games. From Maze Runnerto The Hunger Games and Divergent, each of these stories’ leading men and women kick total ass, and bring a little something different to the table while doing so. But who would you truly trust with your life and the future of mankind?
Woody Harrelson relived his own 1989 this weekend. The latest Saturday Night Live host gave us a Cheers, Cher, and drug-infused musical monologue — a much grittier account of the time than what’s featured on Taylor Swift‘s latest pop album — to the tune of “Blank Space.” And it got even better.

We’re hearing that Julianne Moore is in talks to play President Alma Coin in the two Hunger Games: Mockingjay films. With a cast that’s already included the likes of Stanley Tucci, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Donald Sutherland, we’re no longer surprised by this kind of Oscar-worthy casting. But can you envision the stunning redhead as the scheming, gray-eyed rebel leader?
Why is this cool even though we realize it’s a marketing tool? Because it’s a pretty cool marketing tool and because anything to do with The Hunger Games makes us salivate. Admit it, you’re as curious about the Capitol Portraits as we are. A new “portrait” will be released intermittently until Catching Fire releases in November. And judging by the name, they will all be portraits of members of the Capitol. The series kicks off with a striking image of Elizabeth Banks‘ character, Effie Trinket and the look seems to be far more stylized than the previous film. Besides, we’re totally digging the saturated, yet vintage feel of this portrait. Any guesses to who’ll be next? Seneca Crane? Caeser Flickerman?
Radar Online this morning has a story about how Jennifer Lawrence’s friends are concerned that the Silver Linings Playbook star is putting her work ahead of her health. Which, yeah, that’s kind of legit, considering the fact that she’s admitted to having walking pneumonia at both the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards. But if she weren’t sick, her stories (and acceptance speeches) would be so much less entertaining, wouldn’t they? Case in point: Her best tales on last night’sJimmy Kimmel Live were health-related. There were other gems too, as there have been basically every time she sits on a late-night couch. Here are seven more reasons we love JLaw, based on her latest sit-down:
She had a couple of shots of tequila (the producer’s idea) and a beer (her idea) before getting onstage.
Her main concern upon seeing a recent chest x-ray was not her pneumonia but the appearance that her breasts are different sizes. “It felt like an elephant in the room,” she said of bringing it up with her doctor. “I hope no one ever sees my breasts in an x-ray.” (Better cut that radiology scene you were planning, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay screenwriters!)
She had a 103-degree fever at the Golden Globes and still managed to give that great speech with the First Wives Club joke and a jab at her brothers.
She made this face to her dad upon seeing Adele at the next table over. The same face we would make!
This is one of those posts where we don’t want, or need, to write much, because all we want to do is squee! Lionsgate just released some stills from The Hunger Games next installment Catching Fire, and we’re loving these little sneak peeks. As y’all know, we’re solid fans of Sam Claflin portraying Finnick Odair, so the shot released a little earlier, of him trying to make Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) lose her concentration, made us go a little weak in the knees. The other two newly released shots include Katniss with Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) making a speech in what we think could be during their victory tour. The other is a behind-the-scenes look of the film’s director Francis Lawrence chatting with Lawrence and co-star Liam Hemsworth (Gale). Wonder what J.Law is grinning about? Enough talking, more pictures. How excited are you about the movie? We sure as hell are! Read more…
