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!
Oh, man – not sure if you know this, but Benedict Cumberbatch is playing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in the upcoming film The Fifth Estate, alongside Daniel Brühl as Daniel Domscheit-Berg. Sounds like a rip-roaring time, eh? I’m sure it’ll be an interesting “thriller” for the critics, but holy hell, it sounds boring.
Laura Linney, Stanley Tucci, Dan Stevens and Alicia Vikander are also in the movie, which opens in October. Will you see this shit show? Did this movie come about a year too late? Can Stanley Tucci save this movie like he’s saved so many others? Does anyone care?
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.
