The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2trailer is now upon us, and since the first two films have amassed over $2.2 million internationally, is a trailer even needed? Coming out November 20 and directed by Francis Lawrence, the feature should break its share of records as the concluding chapter of the franchise.
With Panem in the grips of full scale war, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) continues his obsession with eliminating Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawerence). But with the help of close friends Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), the mission to liberate Panem and take down Snow isn’t out of her reach.
If you’ve already read the books, you already know Mockingjayis filled with its share of heartache. Since the actual universe revolves around a survival of the fittest competition, death and tragedy were already part of Katniss’ menu. One of our heroine’s strongest aspects is her fortitude, and to win the final battle a great deal of inner resolve and strategic planning is needed. Late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Julianne Moore, and Natalie Dormer also co-star in the much anticipated flick.
To hear Lawrence talk about having “complicated” feelings about wrapping up the Hunger Gamesfranchise, please go to Deepest Dream.

Home Entertainment. Fans who can’t wait for their hard copy can catch it on Digital HD beginning August 25.

UFC fighter Ronda Rousey and Emily Ratajkowski also star in the film, which also features series regulars Emmanuelle Chriqui, Debi Mazar, Rex Lee, and Constance Zimmer.

Mexico City and Rome are the backdrops for the latest James Bond (Daniel Craig) feature Spectre, and this time out he reunites with Mr. White (Jesper Christensen), the deadly Quantum operative who, considering Bond’s latest adversary Franz Oberhauser (Oscar winner Christoph Waltz), may be a pawn in a much bigger game.
Quantum, as the latest trailer suggests, may also be a subsidiary of the even more powerful organization Spectre, which is headed by Franz. Even with the ever ready Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) by his side, Bond may (at least for most of this narrative) have met his match.
Monica Bellucci also stars as Lucia Sciarra, a criminal’s widow and possible paramour of Bond’s, with Léa Seydoux (Blue Is The Warmest Color) playing Mr. White’s imperiled daughter Madeleine. Sam Mendes, who claimed in a BBC interview that this is his last Bond outing, directs the feature, which opens nationwide November 6.
The action-packed trailer is filled with beautiful women and features Bond’s trademark (and often times dry) charm, but the kicker comes at the end of the clip, when Franz admits that he is the “author” of 007’s pain.
Could Spectrehave a bigger twist than Skyfall,and are you excited to see this film? Feel free to comment below!
Ending its successful 10-episode run tonight on FOX, the limited series WAYWARD PINES is going out in grand style. With the mysterious town completely under siege, only all-out war can save the day. Produced by M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN and based on the popular sci-fi novels by BLAKE CROUCH, the remarkable all-star cast includes MATT DILLON, CARLA GUGINO, SHANNYN SOSSAMON, TOBY JONES, MELISSA LEO, HOPE DAVIS, TERENCE HOWARD and JULIETTE LEWIS.
What can only be hailed as a solid experiment by FOX, the series is rumored to be in talks for another season pick-up so it comes as no surprise that tonight’s finale certainly leaves the possibility open (or not…you decide).
We spoke with star MATT DILLION recently and he talked about his decision to headline WAYWARD PINES and getting to work with such a great cast.
The season (series?) finale of WAYWARD PINES airs tonight on FOX.
