The boy with the bread and the lady with the meat dress have both signed on to host SNL.

Clearly, SOMEONE in that booking department wanted a sandwich.

Are you going to release new catching fire stills ? IREALLY HOPE SO. The fandom love you, thank you.


Funny you should ask — we’ve got three new photos right here!

This week, EW goes deep — deep into a Hawaiian jungle, that is, for an exclusive visit to the set of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Oh — and did we mention this is only one of four covers, featuring Katniss, Peeta, Finnick, and Gale?

Not going to reblog because it’s, you know, fake — but just thought you ought to know. 

'We made some changes to Peeta’s narrative.' says Lawrence. 'We manned him up a little. And by the way it didn’t take a lot, just little choices to make here and there. The story doesn’t really change, his relationship with Katniss doesn’t change, he’s just a different kind of character.' For instance, in the book, the Hunger Games kicks off and Peeta is paralyzed when the other all-star tributes dive into the water. 'The option is for either me drowning or sitting there like a cat bating my paw into the water,' says Josh Hutcherson with a laugh. 'Either way the visual is horrible.' Easy fix: Let Peeta swim.

Catching Fire director Frances Lawrence explains three ways in which the movie will diverge from the book — while assuring fans that their sacred text will always be honored.


My interpretation was that while Katniss had developed strong feelings for Peeta, those feeling were also circumstantial. I think her heart belongs to Gale. Also: Liam Hemsworth. Come on.

Doc Jenson saw Hunger Games: The Movie but didn’t read Hunger Games: The Book. Here’s a rundown of his resulting opinions, theories, and mild confusion. (Q: “Did you notice what was significant about the servants in the Capitol?” A: “No. What was significant about them?”)

Everyone who has read Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games has a specific mental image of what this world and its characters should look like, especially certain crucial scenes like the opening ceremonies of the Games. Well, bravo, Gary Ross and company. In this exclusive photo from the moments just before their introduction, Cinna (Lenny Kravitz) readies a final flaming flourish to Peeta and Katniss’s black costumes. “This is one of those moments where Cinna’s character syncs up with the creativity of our costume designer Judianna Makovsky,” says Ross. (Makovsky earned Oscar nominations for her work on Ross’ previous movies Pleasantville and Seabiscuit.) “What Cinna was trying to do was create something that came out of District 12, out of a coal mining world, with a fresh, bold look to it. So Judianna went to this wonderful black reflective material that glistened like coal or graphite and would obviously work well in the Tribute parade where Katniss becomes the Girl on Fire.”

We’re just a couple months away from the March 23 release date of the hotly anticipated adaptation of the beloved young adult murderfest The Hunger Games. And yet, information about the film is still trickling out slowly — a trailer here, a poster there, plus the occasional Taylor Swift funeral dirge. Satiate yourself with this just-released image of Katniss and Peeta lollygagging around the training center in their matching District 12 workout clothes. The clothes look like vintage X-Men costumes reimagined as Rugby uniforms by a Soviet fashion designer. In short, I just discovered my gym outfit.
