In case you live under a rock and/or have never used the internet, this past weekend was San Diego Comic-Con, the biggest gathering of nerds in the US of A (and I say that as someone who’s been before and thinks it’s great). Comic-Con tends to get some of the biggest exclusives on new movie releases, and this year was no exception. The first teaser, called “Our Leader the Mockingjay”, was released for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 this weekend, and oh man, I can’t wait for this shit.
Here it is, in all its glory:
What do you think? Have you enjoyed the other movies? Will you see this one?

If you’re like most of the world, you saw and loved the second installment of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and you’re looking forward to the third (and fourth!) film. Well, you’ve got less than a year to wait and now we’ve got a teaser poster to keep us going!
As you can see, the Mockingjay poster reveals… absolutely nothing and is in no way exciting, but it’s the official start of promotion for the film, which is pretty exciting. I know, I know, we’re all getting a little disillusioned with having Jennifer Lawrence shoved down our throats nonstop, but come on – she’s brilliant as Katniss. This is gonna be great!

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is finally hitting theatres next month, and it’s about damn time. We’ve had several sneak peeks at what we can expect, but now there’s a FINAL trailer and oh man, it looks great!
Admittedly, the books are way better than the movies could ever be, but it’s still great to watch. Will you go see it next month?

Jennifer Lawrence is awesome and pretty much the world’s best friend, so it might make you mad to know that once upon a time, some Hollywood asshole told her she was too fat and that she needed to drop a few pounds or else risk getting fired from a job. Lovely, eh?
From Harper’s Bazaar:
“I was young. It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through.
“Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight.
“They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet.”
“[People think] that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all.”
“‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get.”I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’, I’m like, ‘You can go f**k yourself’.”
Now, Jennifer is gorgeous and IN NO WAY FAT, but of course you can never be thin enough in Hollywood, so this isn’t at all surprising. But seriously, why are people such dickheads? Anyway, I guess she got the last laugh (even though she obviously has lost weight/got super in shape, but that’s sorta by happenstance given her Hunger Games role)… it’s just unfortunate that this body image shit will never change.

I know Coldplay gets a hard time from plenty of people these days, but I love them. I always have (even though I fell off for a few albums), but after hitting up a show on the Mylo Xyloto tour at a stadium in Sunderland last summer, I was fully back on board. It was freezing cold and pouring down with rain so we were soaked to the bone all day, but that almost made it better. They are so good, so everyone shut up (unless you agree – then by all means, keep talking! lolz).
In any case, Coldplay have unveiled a preview of their new track ‘Atlas’, which will be part of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack – the first time they’ve ever written a song specially for a movie. Woo hoo.
Catching Fire‘s director Francis Lawrence had this to say about Coldplay’s involvement:
“I have great respect and admiration for Coldplay, and we are thrilled with how well they have connected to the themes and ideas within the film,” director Francis Lawrence recently said of Coldplay’s involvement in the film.
“Their unwavering passion and excitement for the project elevated the collaboration even further, and we can’t wait to share this music with audiences around the world.”
It’s a bit slow, but I like it well enough, and I can see it going well with the movie. What do you think?

Everyone is getting pretty excited for the big screen adaptation of Divergent, the awesome YA dystopian novel, and I can’t wait, either. While we’ve seen our first teaser trailer, the film now has its first featurette. Stars Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet and the book’s author, Veronica Roth, came together to discuss the adaptation, the premise, etc to continue to build momentum leading up to its release – which isn’t until March 2014, unfortunately.
Have you guys read the book? Will you see the movie? Obviously The Hunger Games started this whole trend, but there have been some other great, unique stories to come out of the genre and I think Divergent is one of them.
