EW Reveals Five New Stills: Mrs Everdeen and Prim, Plutarch and Haymitch, President Snow, Katniss and Peeta, Gale

It has been a busy day for The Hunger Games fans and media alike. Following the reveal of the latest Entertainment Weekly issue with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) on the cover and a “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” movie still where Finnick gets uncomfortably close to Katniss, we have not one, not two, but FIVE new stills for you to stare look at.

”These are kids growing up in war who physically, emotionally can’t love somebody,” says Jennifer Lawrence about the uncomfortable triangle between District 12’s battle-weary Katniss, Peeta, and her childhood friend Gale that began in The Hunger Games. ”Katniss thinks she can’t have a crush on a boy because she’s worried about survival every single day. And she can’t be a normal 16-year-old meeting her friend out in the woods and practicing kissing because that’s not the world that they live in.”

”Jen and Liam have amazing chemistry,” says director Francis Lawrence of his young stars. ”They have a nice moment right before Katniss is reaped that is the very first thing we shot. And then when Gale has been brought in from the whipping, that’s another really nice moment they have alone.” ”This is the book where you have to understand the pull Katniss feels to both Peeta and Gale,” say producer Nina Jacobson.

What do you think of the five new stills?

EW Reveals 1st “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Cover Featuring Katniss and Finnick

As previously reported, EW announced they will be revealing their first “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” cover at 10am PST.

The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly (EW) cover features a first look at Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) in *SPOILER ALERT* 75th Hunger Games arena outfit as shown below.

This EW cover was also accompanied by following article:

The revolution has been sparked. In this week’s cover story, EW traveled to Waikiki, Hawaii where cast and crew were in the final days of production on the eagerly anticipated Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire (in theaters Nov. 21). Just as the revolution that could embolden the people of Panem rests on young Katniss Everdeen’s shoulders, the success of the franchise depends largely upon Jennifer Lawrence. After spending the day outrunning death in a nearby jungle, the 22-year-old actress ordered herself a Budweiser and kicked back in the Trump balcony lounge to discuss the sequel, her life now as a blockbuster star, and her willful inability to behave like the nice sound-bite machine Hollywood might expect her to be. “It’s almost like I subconsciously don’t want to work anymore so I’m trying to ruin my career,” she says with a laugh at one point, before leaning in close to the reporter’s tape recorder. “I’m pregnant!” she joked.

From her first meeting with new director Francis Lawrence (“I spit egg inside his mouth when I was talking. Into his mouth”) to the raucous party she hosted for the Catching Fire cast and crew (“When Sam walked in I was chasing Woody and we’d flipped over my couch and Woody had a sock all the way down my throat…”), Lawrence was frank and funny and self-aware. “I’m so aware of all the b.s. that surrounds Hollywood,” she says, “and how everyone gets on this high horse and thinks that they’re curing cancer and it makes me so uncomfortable every time I see it. So I go in the exact opposite direction and end up saying something like ‘I’m pregnant!’ when I’m in two franchises.”

Then in an exclusive conversation, director Francis Lawrence described his vision for the sequel, his immediate three-day pow-wow with series writer Suzanne Collins to ready a script, and how one of his inherited cast members had a particularly hard time adjusting to the loss of Hunger Games director Gary Ross. (Woody Harrelson, who plays Katniss and Peeta’s wry and PTSD-ruined wreck of a mentor Haymitch.)

EW also sat down with Sam Claflin, the green-eyed, dimpled Brit who won the role of District 4′s charming and enigmatic golden boy Finnick Odair, for his first Hunger Games interview. He described filming the infamous sugar cube scene, in which Finnick teases Katniss while wearing nothing beyond some strategically placed netting, as “the scariest moment of my life. I’m on Twitter and so many people have been like ‘Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.’”

This issue of EW will hit newsstands in US on January 11, 2013 and is expected to be available in major newsstands and bookstores such as Kinokuniya by this weekend.

OFFICIAL: Francis Lawrence Signed On To Direct Mockingjay Part 1 And 2

Lionsgate announced today (Singapore time) that Francis Lawrence, who is currently busy with directing Catching Fire, has officially signed on to direct both Mockingjay Part 1 and 2 which is currently slated for a release on November 21, 2014, for Part 1 and Part 2 on November 20, 2015, in USA.

Francis Lawrence’s previous works in directing includes I Am Legend and Water For Elephants.

Meanwhile, Emmy winning scriptwriter Danny Strong will be writing the script for Mockingjay Part 1 and 2.

We reckon Francis Lawrence must be doing something right for Lionsgate to stick with him to direct Mockingjay Part 1 and 2 too. At the very leas, there will be a sense of continuity throughout Catching Fire and Mockingjay Part 1 and 2.
What do you think of Francis Lawrence to direct Mockingjay Part 1 and 2 too, in addition to Catching Fire?

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Extras Casting Includes “Fire Breathers”?

This got to be the most bizarre news of the day.

We learned from The Hob a staff in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” casting department according to IMDb, Jennifer Rose Locke, has posted videos of extras casting on Vimeo. Sadly, these videos are now made private to prevent the highly protected content of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” from leaking out.

An audition clip of Issac King who has a striking resemblance to Josh Hutcherson, is rumored to play Peeta Mellark’s brother in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” was first found on Vimeo.

Issac King

Jennifer Rose Locke‘s Vimeo account also hosts private video albums which are titled “D11 Mayor“, “Peeta Family“, “Rue Family“, “Thresh Sister” and strangely, “Fire Breathers“.

What could this “Fire Breathers” be? An elaborate Capitol performance which involves circus acts such as people breathing fire? Dragons/humans hybrid? Let’s get carried away and tell us what do you think “Fire Breathers” is.

Meanwhile, we are glad the titles of these videos let us have a glimpse on what kind of characters might have a scene or two in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.

The Hunger Games, rated PG13, was released on 22 March 2012 and DVD and Blu-Ray are now available. “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is scheduled for release on 22 November 2013 in USA.
