Social Sentiment and the Samsung Mockingjay Deal

Social Sentiment and the Samsung Mockingjay Deal

As we start the WEEK OF THE MOCKINGJAY TRAILER RELEASE, many questions remain:

Is it a full trailer, or another one of the propaganda videos?

When can I watch it on my Samsung Galaxy Amazing Awesomeness Tablet/Phone?

When is it actually going to be released online?

Well, none of these questions have been officially answered yet, but there are a few good leads.

While Lionsgate in their press…

Awhile back, like a couple of years ago– I wrote about the prospect of The Hunger Games utilizing the tried and truth money-making method of product placement. However, now that a few major companies have made brief, and lasting partnerships with the franchise (Cover Girl, Subway) I’m struck with the thought again of “what if?” In the case of the most recent news of Lionsgate having sold the…

Selling the Mockingjay Trailer Release

News came out today that Mockingjay Part 1 would indeed have a presence at San Diego Comic Con. Yay! That’s awesome and great. And expected, since Lionsgate has been saying all along they would be at Comic Con since January. But now we know some of the stars will be there, which is great news for fans who long ago bought tickets thinking that Mockingjay would have a presence at the Con.

But then…

Caesar’s Scrunchy is back once again with EVEN MOAR visual beauty! Today, she’s talking about how Catching Fire portrayed the way Cinna left his mark on more than just The Mockingjay!

The Rebels Are At It

The Rebels Are At It

The Rebels are at it again, and the famdom is buzzing with anticipation for something, anything– seriously, give us something!

The Big Event on July 26th!

Did you hear the news about SATURDAY, JULY 26TH? It’s a big, big, big day, as our Effie would say.

Catching Fire makes its world television premiere at 9pm ET on EPIX!

Ok, ok, don’t yell at me! I know it’s not THE NEWS that everyone is waiting to hear. And it doesn’t mean much if you don’t get the EPIX channel (Though there is a 14 day Free Trial).

The Real Big “R” Question for Mockingjay - Not Ratings, but Romance

The Real Big “R” Question for Mockingjay – Not Ratings, but Romance

Wedded Bliss

Jobs take us away, holidays to locations where Internet access is shoddy at best, or maybe perhaps there’s a wedding to celebrate? I didn’t ask if it was alright to bring this up before hand, but if you haven’t noticed lately that The Girl With The Pearl has not been posting articles penned by her self…

Mockingjay Teaser 2’s Big Surprises and Unanswered Questions

In President Snow’s Second Address to Panem, he surprised us with his additions to the cast.  He included a slew of peacekeepers to make a statement of authority – and also a really big threat.  His choice to bring out the muscle, wasn’t a huge surprise though. No, the BIG, HUGE, WHAT AND HOW IS THIS HAPPENINGsurprise was the inclusion of Johanna Mason dressed all in white and with a very obvious…
