Katniss Returns Home in New ‘Mockingjay’ Preview

wpid-hunger-games.jpeg

There’s no place like home for Katniss Everdeen and after having to be in both The Hunger Games and the Quarter Quell, it’s only logical that she wants to go home, but President Snow has made that impossible.

Like we witnessed, or at least were told at the end of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by Gale Hawthorne, “there is no District 12.”

In the new preview for the upcoming installation of the hit book and film franchise, we are shown what exactly it means to become the Mockingjay when Katniss is taken back home to see the ruins that were once District 12.

If that wasn’t enough of a declaration of war by Snow, then we’re not sure what is, especially with the presence of that vase of dead, white roses with only one rose bud surviving. What’s Snow trying to say with that, huh?

Check out the new preview below which features Lorde’s newest track, “Yellow Flicker Beat” exclusively written for the soundtrack.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I will be released on Nov. 21 while tickets will go on sale beginning Oct. 29.

Lionsgate to Launch ‘Hunger Games’ Inspired Exhibition Tour

The Hunger Games have become one of the hottest franchises launching their young stars (Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, just to name a few) into the A-list genre of Hollywood as well as hordes of fans, globally. With a franchise being as popular, rumors already began to circulate that there would be a theme park alla Harry Potter in the works. To think, those plans all circulated around the success of the first film.
 
Today, Lionsgate revealed their plans to launch “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition” U.S. tour set to hit the road in 2015 while talks for that theme park are still in works. The exhibition will include displays of costumes, props, and other elements of the films. The production company has brought in Thinkwell Group to help with the launch.
 
According to Lionsgate, the exhibition will be placed in “major museums and institutions.”

“Now that we’ve built a critical mass of intellectual property, we’re committed to extending our brands into exciting new businesses that create opportunities for our fans to engage with our properties at the same time they deliver significant incremental financial benefits to Lionsgate,” said Lionsgate chief marketing officer Tim Palen. 

The exhibition will be launched several months before the Nov. 25, 2015 release of the fourth and final film, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay–Part 2. As of now, the first two films have grossed over $1.5 billion at the box office, worldwide.

Watch the Newest ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Trailer

xmen2

During the MTV Movie Awards this past Sunday, Ellen Page delivered a short look at the upcoming X-Men film, X-Men: Days of Future Past which like most of the teasers that have been revealed left us excited, but still confused. Though at the current moment nobody truly knows the story line for the upcoming film, what we do know is that the film will include all the X-Men we fell in love with in the first films of the franchise and then some.

Today, the final trailer for the film which is scheduled to hit theaters next month, was released. Clocking in at under three minutes, the teaser begins with shots of Professor Xavier’s famed Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters leading way to Wolverine appearing to a young Xavier telling him that he has come from the futures (50 years to be exact). To that Xavier laughs, because who wouldn’t if someone were to tell you that.

Watch as Wolverine leads a mission by the older Professor X to bring together all the mutants to form the X-Men in the trailer below.

X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released on May 23.

Playing up the fans’ excitement for the upcoming sequel to The Hunger Games, the production company is currently using their excitement to have them unlock stills from the film. All that needs to be done is tweet #HungerGamesExplorer for a new still to be revealed.

The first still shows Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and her little sister, Prim (Willow Shields) looking sad in what could be assumed to be their depressingly mundane home of District 12.
