District 13 Rebel Reaction

IT’S MOCKINGJAY PART 1 Posterama! We got six brand spankin’ new posters of Star Squad 451, our first official look at the crew in their gear.

And OF COURSE we’ve got lots of feelings we need to share about all this! BEHOLD!

Oh, Hemsy! Your eyebrow game is just through the roofin this poster. We just want to brush them methodically for you (as we assume someone else did shortly before this…

#THG on #TNT

While everyone has been busy with the very worthy cause of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (I’ll be doing mine soon!), some other exciting new has come our way… At least in America.

The Hunger Games is FINALLY coming to cable television!

Consider it the marriage of two fiery ring logos!

After a predictable deal to air the series on ABC Family– the teen-friendly network that brings us the awesome joy…

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.…

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…

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…

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…

Oh, Lorde: The Mockingjay Part 1 Soundtrack

Oh, Lorde: The Mockingjay Part 1 Soundtrack

Today, Lionsgate made an announcement that actually surprised us (and not in a way that we immediately hated either, which is even more surprising!)

Mockingjay Product Campaigns: (Fictional) Worst Case Scenarios

Mockingjay Product Campaigns: (Fictional) Worst Case Scenarios

Today, we’re going to be positive and grateful. For what, you ask?

Though we’re still confused about why the Katniss ad for Always exists, today we will show our thanks that some other character-specific ad campaigns DON’T exist, even though they’re surprisingly more relevant to the story than tampons.

At least we’ve not yet seen…

Katniss Everdeen and Girls Who Obviously Do Things #LikeAGirl

Dear ladies,

In case you didn’t already know it, we’re gross. So much so that the whole advertising world is busy telling us how gross we are in an effort to help us conceal our unholy level of disgusting, because we should totally be ashamed!

These companies sell us (and in part help create) our insecurities. But don’t worry! Then they empower us! How, you ask? By making us feel insecure about…

Applicability, Schapplicability: More Mockingjay Musings

We’ve got BONUS guest posts for you this week! Check out another Mockingjay musing from Satsuma, who sees plenty of opportunity of historical parallels in the final two films!

Here I am, trying to make more predictions about the MJ movies. My last post dealt with their possible approach to romance. This one focuses more on the politics.…
