Katniss, you in danger, girl. The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire brings us more darkness from the Districts than ever before as the powers that be weigh in on the fate of the Girl on Fire…and what they decide isn’t good for our favourite victor.
Recently-minted Best Actress Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence mopes around in our first full look at the sequel to last year’s smash hit. Forced to be the symbol of emancipation from under the well-heeled boot of the Capitol, Katniss and Peeta are once again thrown into the fray as only the coldly-calculating President Snow (Donald Sutherland) knows how. This time around President Snow has a new right-hand man to help him end Katniss for good in the form of The Games’ newest Gamekeeper, Plutarch Havensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman).
It’s going to get dark as the fight from oppression becomes intensified in Catching Fire. Check out the first trailer now!

Leaving their families and travelling from district to district, the twosome are thrust into the spotlight, and judging from the posters, fame looks good on them. Sporting light-coloured clothing, a white dress and a bouquet of white flowers, it seems as if Peeta and Katniss are posing for wedding pictures but the impending Quarter Quell will soon put a damper on any bourgeoning romance.
The producers of the Academy Awards have good news for those watching at home: They're trying to cut out the boring parts.
Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron say they watched 40 years of past ceremonies to finds ways to keep the show moving at a brisk pace. They say they are looking to nip and tuck unnecessary moments that can turn the show into a marathon.
At an annual lunch honouring Oscar nominees, Zadan and Meron said they identified time-consuming segments that might run only 15 or 30 seconds but which collectively can bog down the show. In some years, the Oscars have run to a ponderous four hours or more.
"You start adding up those 30 seconds, and you have an accumulation of time that you can use for entertainment. So that's what we're doing. We're learning a lot about the things that we don't need in the show," Zadan said. "The main goal is to honour the nominees and the winners. And then beside that, there's a lot of pregnant pauses that you get in the show. ... We've scooped out a lot of those pauses and created more time for performance and entertainment."
Zadan and Meron said they have moments planned that should appeal to all ages and interests, including performances by Adele, Norah Jones and Barbra Streisand and a tribute to the James Bond franchise.
A few weeks ago it seemed a long, long shot that Ben Affleck's Iran hostage crisis drama Argo could unseat Steven Spielberg's widely well-regarded biopic on one of the great American presidents, but it seems that the actor-director's career best is turning out to give Lincoln a run for its money, earning a SAG Award for Best Ensemble Cast, adding to its Producers Guild of America Award win on Saturday and possibly elbowing its way into Oscar Best Picture frontrunner standing.
Affleck's name, you may recall, is not the list of Best Director nominees but the Oscar slight seems to be the only snub when it comes to major awards-giving bodies who have fully fallen for the based-on-true-events tale of an exfiltration expert, played by Affleck, tasked with getting American hostages out of Iran safely and secretly.
The girl on fire is back! Jennifer Lawrence is heating things up with Josh Hutcherson in these newly released stills from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The sequel to last year’s blockbuster The Hunger Games sees Katniss (Lawrence) and Peeta (Hutcherson) back in the battle arena for the Quarter Quell, a special version of the Games that occurs every twenty-five years to mark the anniversary of the Districts’ defeat against the Capitol. The Quell marks the 75th edition of the Hunger Games and promises bloodier battles and unbelievable twists for competitors and audience.
With new director Francis Lawrence on board and the addition of several new cast members including Jena Malone (as Johanna Mason), Sam Clafin (as Finnick Odair), Philip Seymour Hoffman (as Plutarch Havensbee), and Amanda Plummer (as Wiress). Some familiar faces of the Capitol and the Districts are back for the sequel including Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Liam Hemsworth, Toby Jones and Lenny Kravitz.
