You’ve had plenty of time to see the number one movie from the weekend, now it is time for you to share your thoughts on The Hunger Games; Catching Fire.

Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

Check out the latest UK poster for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I’m really starting to get excited for this next installment in the franchise. The film is set to open in the UK on November 21st, and in the U.S. on the 22nd.
There’s a lot of talk on launching a third installment of the Expendables franchise. That’s all well and good, but Hollywood learned a long time ago that as more sequels are made, the box office returns generally go down. A third installment will more than likely have a $100 million budget, and to ensure money is available, the producers and executives may want to look to crowd funding to get the production off the ground.
There was so much news coming out of the San Diego Comic-Con that even a week later, we are still getting news of announcements made at the show. Zenescope Entertainment had a few bits of information to share at the con, including the announcement about an upcoming television series.
If you have been jumping up and down awaiting the news on when the new Conan movie will arrive in theaters, today is your day. Lionsgate has announced the Jason Momoa film will hit U.S. theaters on August 19, 2011, and feature a PG-13 rating. I guess that means no nekkid women lamenting over Conan’s crushing defeat of his enemies.
Sadly, the film will be done up as a 3-D release… When will they learn?
Bluewater Productions has announced that its Lionsgate Films titles, Warlock and Leprechaun are coming together for a double feature.
The graphic novel features two parts. Part one features an evil Warlock embarking on a mission to destroy a powerful book which contains a spell that imprisoned six other Warlocks. If the Warlock destroys the book, the curse is broken and the six Warlocks would be released back into the world free to cause death and destruction.
And the second part cult film Leprechaun comes to the graphic novel world, this is the tale of Lubdan, the king and sole survivor of the Leprechaun. The last of the Leprechauns! A treasure dealer stumbles across his pot of gold and steals it. In this modern age, he finds buyers all over the planet through on-line auctions.
Lionsgate Double Feature: Leprechaun and Warlock is written by Nick Lyons and Zach Hunchar with art by Jacob Bear and Kris Carter. The graphic novel arrives in November.
Marvel Studios and Lionsgate Home Entertainment have released the trailer for their next animated movie – Thor: Tales of Asgard.Â Those who bought the Planet Hulk direct to DVD movie yesterday already saw it, but for those of us who are waiting for the weekend an that big big paycheck (hey, I can dream), this should tide you over.
Pencil in April 16, 2010 as a day you’re going to be busy.Â That’s the date Lionsgate is planning on releasing Matthew Vaughn’sÂ Kick-Ass movie adaptation.
Lionsgate acquired North American distrib rights to “Kick-Ass” shortly after Comic-Con. Pic, starring Nicolas Cage and Aaron Johnson, is based on the bestselling comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. Storyline revolves around a young boy who inspires a subculture of wannabe superheroes who have no powers.
I’m sure after the government takes all my money on the 15th, I’ll be ready to kick some ass of my own, so this looks like a perfect release (and possible viral marketing campaign) for the film.
