If our 10-second tease of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" trailer—which is set to debut at this weekend's MTV Movie Awards—wasn't enough for you, why not take a bite out of this: an EXCLUSIVE GIF of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) being ushered to the stage by mentor Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks)!
Sure, sure, this moment was featured in the earlier promo…but not from this angle. Here, you can see exactly what fashionable frocks our District 12 victors are wearing during the latest leg of their Panem-wide PR bonanza. (Loving the sleeveless tunic, JLaw...)
The "Divergent" movie is officially off and running—production began yesterday in Chicago, which will be transformed into a crumbling dystopian metropolis by the time we see it on the big screen!—but it's never too late to add a new cast member or two.
Variety reported late Monday that Mekhi Phifer has joined the flick, with Veronica Roth chiming in via blog to confirm that he'll be playing yet another member of the Dauntless faction. We're gonna have trouble keeping track of all these Dauntlesses, yo. This is a LOT of Dauntlesses.
The 2013 MTV Movie Awards are still a few days away, but today marks the start of our annual Sneak Peek Week, in which we bring you all kinds of goodies from the summer's upcoming movies. And tonight, we're starting at the end—"This Is The End," to be exact.
The comedy, out June 12, takes place at James Franco's house (yes, that James Franco) during a star-studded fete—one that is ultimately (and inconveniently) interrupted by the apocalypse. And with so many famous faces in one place, you know not everyone's going to make it out alive.
Ever since casting began on the film adaptation for dystopian sci-fi thriller "The Maze Runner," all the cute British actors of a certain age seem to be getting snatched up to star as members of the slapdash tribe of survivalist lads who are known in the story as "Gladers." Which means that for the next several months, lucky lady Kaya Scodelario is going to be where the boys are—literally.
Although there's been no official casting announcement, director Wes Ball spilled the beans that the English "Skins" star is on board to play Teresa, the lone girl who changes everything when she appears in the story's titular maze. The news first broke via Wes' Twitter account, where he enthused about Kaya's awesome on-screen chemistry with Aml Ameen; Kaya then confirmed the news herself, with a big thank you to fans for supporting her bid to be in the movie.
The voting has only been open a few days in our social media-driven MTV Movie Awards "Best Hero" category, but it's already clear that this fight for heroic supremacy will come down to a battle between two fierce fandoms: The K-Stewards and the Bilbros. (Yes, we just made those up. Yes, you may immediately put them into universal circulation on the internet.) As we speak, Kristen Stewart in her role as Snow White is just barely edging out Martin Freeman as the hairy-footed Mr. Baggins for the win—separated by a mere 5,000 votes or so. And the Baggins is gaining on her, precious, oh yes! Gainingggggg!
A reminder: Best Hero is the only category at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards for which you can vote exclusively on Twitter and Instagram, by tagging your posts with the hashtag promoting your particular favorite on-screen super-friend. And whether you #votesnowwhite, #votebilbo, or vote against hope that Iron Man might have a late-game comeback and soundly trounce errbody, now's your chance to throw in for your personal hero's right to take home the Golden Popcorn. Hash those tags, people, and tune in on April 14 to find out who wins!
Damsels in distress...ugh. We here at Hollywood Crush prefer our protagonists to be butt-kickers of the highest order—or, at the very least, BAMFs in training. And, happily, so too does actress Lily Collins, who plays teen Clary Fray in the upcoming "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones."
When we caught up with the starlet recently at WonderCon, she revealed how she made the character her own—and a fighter, to boot.
"I actually saw a lot of similarities between Clary and I," Lily said. "She's a go-getter. She's feisty. She fights for what she believes in, and I really associate a lot of her qualities with mine, but I also wanted to bring this realness to her, like she was just the girl next door, because I didn't want her to be this caricature of a fan-favorite heroine in a book. I wanted her to be someone you could be friends with next door."
Not an easy task, considering Clary is actually a descendant of a long line of demon-destroying Nephilim known as Shadowhunters. (I don't know about you, but the only super-human ability my childhood neighbor had was flying across the Slip 'n Slide really fast.) So how did Lily accomplish this feat?
Not all typecasting is bad. If you're "Twilight" actor Kellan Lutz, it means you get to play a succession of iconic characters—who just so happen to be Men's Health magazine-worthy.
After strapping on a sword and sandals as Poseidon in "Immortals" and swinging from vines as Tarzan in the upcoming motion-capture movie of the same name, Kellan will get mythical once again for the title role in "Hercules 3D," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Little is known about the plot of the film, though the report did indicate that it "will have at its center a love story between the son of Zeus and the mortal princess of Crete, who was promised to his older brother despite her love for Hercules."
Director Baz Luhrmann could not be more in love with star-crossed romances. His filmography is a paean to the form—as is the trailer for his latest "The Great Gatsby," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and Joel Edgerton.
While the first trailer—released nearly a year ago—made the era's Art Deco decadence (not to mention the intrigue of who exactly Jay Gatsby is) the main focus, this latest is more a meditation on the lost love between Jay and Daisy Buchanan. In many ways, it actually calls to mind Baz's earlier epic, "Romeo + Juliet," and it's not just the fact that both star the towheaded heartthrob (though that certainly doesn't hurt).
"Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke will be hitting the books once again.
Deadline reports that the auteur has signed on to direct the big-screen adaptation of Karen Thompson Walker's 2012 novel "The Age of Miracles."
The story follows 11-year-old Julia and her family as they awake one morning to discover the rotation of the Earth has inexplicably slowed—causing all sorts of bizarre phenomena and, ultimately, leaving the planet's fate uncertain. But who has time to worry about the apocalypse when there are everyday concerns like first loves, failing marriages and kooky grandparents to contend with?
If you needed another reason to watch this year's MTV Movie Awards...well, seriously, what's wrong with you? Will you never be satisfied? Have you ever considered that you take too much and never consider our needs? PFFFT. But okay, fine, here's your billionth reason to tune into the awards ceremony on April 14: We got you an awesome "Catching Fire" teaser trailer, which will debut exclusively at the awards, introduced specially by Liam Hemsworth.
And if you're wondering what might be included in said teaser, then you can check out this teaser for the teaser, in which Katniss and Peeta are introduced in a neighboring district whilst on their Victory Tour for the 74th Hunger Games. (Highlights include an amazing back view of Effie Trinket's outfit, the sleeves of which appear to be made from two exotic furry animals.) There. Enjoy. Don't say we never did anything for you.
