The New ‘Hunger Games’ Posters Are Here!

movies-the-hunger-games-catching-fire-katniss

The second Hunger Games film, Catching Fire, isn’t hitting theatres until November… but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about it now! After all, this weekend at Comic-Con, a new trailer will be released and no doubt the internet will go insane once someone uploads a shitty iPhone video of it to YouTube. If you can’t wait for all that excitement, though, you’re in luck! The new series of character posters have been released, and they’re awesome!

Just in case you forgot, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz (LOL), Sam Claflin, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks, Jena Malone, Woody Harrelson and on and on and on. It’s gonna be good! Not as good as the books, if the first movie was anything to go by, but still totally watchable.

New ‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Posters Are Here!

I loved The Hunger Games book trilogy, and while I thought the movie was only good rather than great (as most big screen adaptations of books tend to be, unfortunately), I’m pretty pumped for the second installment, Catching Fire, that’s due to hit theatres in November. Plus, the visual effects, costumes and make-up are fantastic, which makes the artwork/promotional posters a lot of fun to look at. Check out the new shot of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen above, and then scroll through some others below.

Quotables: Elizabeth Banks Just Pissed Everyone Off

“Two is very different from one. When you have one kid, you feel like you can jet set around and you can throw him on the hip and you get your life done. You don’t realize how easy one is until you have two. Now I’m really a mom. Oh, I am a mom now! This is for serious – I am responsible for two people now.”

- Elizabeth Banks explains that she was not really a mother until she was the mother of two children.

Oh, Elizabeth. Oh, girl, no. Take it back.

And to make matters worse, Elizabeth also told a story about how hard it was to take her two children on vacation for ten whole days with only the help of her husband. Can you even imagine?

“[We] had no help, no nannies, no babysitters. It was crazy. You forget how difficult it is to wake up in the middle of the night, how exhausting it is. I lost all my nails. I did dishes and cleaned bottles for 10 days so I lost all those nails!”

Stop, Elizabeth Banks. Stop right now. I don’t want to hear anything else about your hardships. I’d like to be a mother myself one day, but your tales of vacations without nannies and lost fingernails just makes me rethink everything. It’s like, who knew that parenting could be that hard?

The Oscars – The Dresses (Part III)

I happen to adore Elizabeth Banks’ elegant grey dress (above). It should be noted, however, that the opinions expressed in this article and the two previous ones are not necessarily the opinions of Evilbeet.com. Sasha’s take on the gown? “Love Eilzabeth Banks. Haaaate her dress.”
Nicole Richie wore a beaded snuggie that showed off her back tatoos and Jennifer Lopez showed up wrapped in a mattress pad. I wonder if she and Amanda Seyfried had it out backstage; they’re pretty much wearing mirror images of the same roll of two-ply toilet paper.

Sarah Jessica Parker was there, but as usual, I can’t figure out whether she looks gorgeous and glamorous, or like a fashion victim with a hangover.

Also in this group: Tina Fey, Stana Katic, Queen Latifah, Monique, Molly Ringwald, Mariska Hargitay, Jane Seymour, and Super Classy Bitch Helen Mirren.

Weight Gain or Bad Posture?

The lovely Elizabeth Banks attendedthe 2009 Independent Spirt Awards yesterday. Is it just me, or is she looking a tad thicker through the middle than usual?

Just goes to show that any one, no matter how thin/fit/pretty, can take an unflattering pic. I’ve got a few Sasquatch photos that I’ve had to quietly burn to keep them from seeing the light of day through out the years.

Gorgeous!

Elizabeth Banks looks stunning at the London screening of W. last night. It took a lot of guts to wear that dress — especially considering that it was raining!

Also there: Josh Brolin and Thandie Newton.
