Ever since The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, I’ve been awestruck by Asa Butterfield’s talent. He was one of the finalists to be Spider-Man in the MCU, and I was rooting for him, though Tom Holland has that so owned now, I think it was for the best. Through Hugo and Ender’s Game, Butterfield has continued to blow me away, and I’m hoping as he transitions into adulthood he’s the rare star that manages to continue to find good roles and evolve as an actor. Journey’s End is a World War I epic based on the novel by R.C. Sherriff. It’s scheduled to hit theaters February 2, 2018.
Straight from the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, where it premiered last night, here is your first look at The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The second of four movies adapting Suzanne Collins’ novels will debut in theaters on November 22, 2013.
New still from Hunger Games: Catching Fire today showing a reunion of the Everdeen sisters. A reminder, the trailer for Catching Fire will debut during the MTV Music Awards on April 14th (no they won’t tell you exactly when because they want you to watch the whole weird thing). Lionsgate has also launched TheHungerGamesExplorer.com for fans who wish to sift about in hopes of finding more tidbits. Catching Fire opens nationwide November 22, 2013.
I liked The Hunger Games; love Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, but the movie seemed…sterile. It never felt as driving and compelling as the books which I gobbled up like print crack. Perhaps a change of directors will mix things up as Francis Lawrence takes over the second film: Catching Fire. It releases November 22, 2013, and we’ll get our first trailer during the MTV Movie Awards on April 14th. Official plot synopsis below!
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
