The Mockingjay: There’s An App For That

The Mockingjay: There’s An App For That #OLTM

So remember when Victor’s Village and a bunch of other sites got a load of mysterious photos with the Mockingjay symbol all over them? We found out what that’s all about! And it’s… an app!

Yes, yes, yes.. it’s a little underwhelming, all things considered. As a fandom, we wan every hint out there to be leading to either a trailer or something that lets us interact with the cast. Mostly a trailer.…

Our Leader the Mockingjay

Our Leader the Mockingjay

Over the last two days the internet has been inundated with photos featuring the hashtag #OLTM, an acronym for Our Leader the Mockingjay. The photos have been spread, and shared all over social media, from Tumblr, to Twitter, to Facebook, and of course Instagram. The photos them selves started out pretty broad, pretty scenes from famous locations across the globe, places like the Great Wall of…

President Coin - A Role Worth Seeking Out

President Coin – A Role Worth Seeking Out

After last week’s little blurb of an article and repetitious “first still” of Katniss Everdeen in Entertainment Weekly come two online articles today with a little more to chew on. There’s some hints about the tone and greater world building and also about the expansion of President Coin’s character in the movies.

One surprising thing about Coin’s casting was that Julianne Moore approached themab…

Missing The Mockingjay And Her Friends

We’ve still got another full year of promotional images and trailers and premiere and press junkets for The Hunger Games franchise, but man.. It’s certainly starting to feel like the end is nigh.

Filming wrapped weeks ago, but only now are we starting to see the celebrities out and about at events, answering the media’s questions (and in doing so, totally filling us with our fandom end-of-days…

96 Days And Counting

96 Days And Counting

We have 96 days and counting until the release of Mockingjay Part 1, but in reality a select few thousand only have about 80 something days to go. Yep, and those few thousand would be the people who will be attending the world premiere. Getting it out-of-the-way, I do not think I will be one of those few thousand. Why? Because if the world premiere is in London, or anywhere in Europe like it was…

The Mockingjay’s Non-Reveal

The Mockingjay’s Non-Reveal

The headline makes your heart jump “New Still of Katniss from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″? Could it be?! Is it really here?!

Sorta. Kinda… Not really.

Yes, it is technically the first still of Katniss released by Lionsgate. But no, it’s really not new. Something very similar to the still has been all over the Internet for weeks already because it’s same scene featuring Katniss from the…

Let The Promotional Material Drop

Let The Promotional Material Drop

We’d like to think that more promotional material of real substance has dropped within the last day or so, but I’m remiss to admit that there has not. Therefore we’re stuck pondering the existence of our navels, and this picture that Elizabeth Banks posted on her Twitter.

Happy! Fun! Promo Time!

Happy! Fun! Promo Time!

Let’s see, we’ve got Liam Hemsworth, we’ve got Elizabeth Banks, and we’ve got Jennifer Lawrence all…

Donald Sutherland Saves the Teen Choice Awards by Being THE BEST

Donald Sutherland Saves the Teen Choice Awards by Being THE BEST

We admit it. We may mock the Teen Choice Awards, but due to our addiction to everything in this fandom, we watch this award show for “teens,” even though we haven’t been teens for quite a few years.

Our fan hearts were happy early on, because Josh was there and he won and was his adorable, sexy self.  I think this calls for another picture of him in his moment of glory.

But after he won, the…

Sacrificing Sanity For Mockingjay: The TCAs and More

Sacrificing Sanity For Mockingjay: The TCAs and More

Oh, the things we do for fandom!

Without realizing it, our love of The Hunger Games fandom has seeped us in a deep sense of ridiculous sense of paranoia about completely insignificant details and events.

The Hunger Games + Award Shows = US DOING THIS.

The Hunger Games + Award Shows = US DOING THIS.

For instance, The Teen Choice Awards are on right now. Deep down, we realize that the TCAs are fun, but they’re also so silly that your average…
