The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1: New Footage!

SPOILER ALERT: 

Peeta is alive.

In a new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Katniss is gearing up for a battle against the Capitol when she’s stopped in her brave tracks by a video that doesn’t just feature her quasi boyfriend… it features him sending an unexpected message.

Peeta is seen telling all rebels to “lay down their weapons” and when Katniss defends him as being forced to do so by President Snow, Gale responds harshly.

“Everyone has a choice, Katniss, and I’d rather die than say what he just said,” Liam Hemsworth says in the sneak peek.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is a mouthful.

It’s also third film in this beloved sci-fi series, which is based on Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novels.

The film will feature the return of many familiar faces, including Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Sam Claflin, Willow Shields, Woody Harrelson and late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

It will be released on November 21 and Lorde will sing the main single on the soundtrack.

Here’s an early look at various photos from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.

Ryan Phillippe: ‘I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years; 5 of them are good’

Ryan Phillippe

Ryan Phillippe is promoting his directorial debut, Catch Hell. Ryan co-wrote the script with a friend (Joe Gossett) and stars in the main role. Ryan says he “kind of plays himself,” which is to say he plays an actor whose career has hit a lull. Not-Ryan is a character who gets chased by the paparazzi but can’t land a movie. I don’t know how close this is to the truth. Ryan hardly ever gets papped these days. He may simply be good at evading the cameras.

Ryan certainly feels like his acting career isn’t the greatest. He spoke with the LA Times about how he dislikes all of his films — except for five of them, which he does not name. Mystery! Cruel Intentions has to be one of the good ones. The movie was pure cheese but a guilty pleasure for many. I hope Ryan’s not dissing that movie, especially since he met the mother of his children during filming. I bet Ryan considers Flags of Our Fathers to be one of his good movies since Clint Eastwood directed it. He probably also liked Gosford Park; Crash was emotionally manipulative, but it won Best Picture, right? So he’s gonna be proud of that one. Maybe Lincoln Lawyer?

The turning point in Ryan’s career — 2011: “I did this terrible movie with 50 Cent [the heist flick, Setup]. It was just a situation I didn’t want to be in. I was sold a bill of goods and it turned out to be something different, which is often the case in this business.”

Where he is now: “It’s certainly not a lament of mine that I’ve fallen out of favor in Hollywood. I’ve made 30-plus films over 20 years. And in my opinion, five of them are good. So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed. There are a lot of elements that are beyond your control when you’re an actor for hire. So this is kind of the beginning of my wanting to take a little more control and be a little more involved.”

He’s tiring of acting: “Acting alone doesn’t sustain me the same way it used to. Which I think is completely OK if you’ve done something for 20 years. Trying something else becomes really appealing.”

His first time directing: “I love it bleeding together and being a question of how much is directly related to me or isn’t. I’m proud of this movie. I came in on time and under budget. I got it done, and it is what it is. It’s not giant. But I can’t wait to do the next one — especially since I won’t be required to be on-camera the whole time.”

[From LA Times]

I don’t know how to feel about this newfound trend of actors trashing their films. It bugs. Why must they appear so ungrateful for roles that struggling actors would love to play?

Ryan recently spoke about his co-parenting efforts with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon. They’ve led a relatively drama-free divorce. American citizen Reese has had far more drama on her own. Anyway, Ryan said he and Reese went on a family walk through Central Park and talked about how they shot Cruel Intentions there. Ava and Deacon “were tripping out on the fact that we were there shooting a movie before they were even a thought in our minds.” I doubt Reese and Ryan went into great detail about this movie, right? The kids will see it on their own someday. And they will be sooo embarrassed to see their parents get it on.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Kim Turns Heads (Love It Or Hate It?)

kim kardashian & kanye west (1)It looks like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had a “day date” yesterday afternoon! North West stayed home while the couple went to the movies. Kim and Kanye were dressed casually, but you know that isn’t going to stop Kim from turning heads. This has to be the most eye-popping top (backless) and pair of jeans I’ve ever seen. RELATED: Kim and Kanye get into the Halloween spirit!

That top has NO back. Seriously, what would Kim have done if a strong breeze came along and blew the front up? Eyeballs REALLY would’ve popped out of heads then ;). And those jeans flaunt her famous derriere. You have to admit, Kim knows how to show off her assets.

I bet Kanye was a fan of the outfit- LOL. Clearly he’s not the possessive type who doesn’t want other guys looking at his wife. He’s probably a “look but you better not touch” kinda guy. I’m sure Kim got plenty of looks at the theater. I’ve gotta ask…

Angelina Jolie New ‘Unbroken’ UK Trailer (Hot New Trailer)

unbroken trailer 2I’m putting the new trailer for ‘Unbroken’ up as our “feel good video of the day” because the story is SO inspirational. Angelina Jolie directed the film, so we don’t get to see her onscreen, but this story is so powerful, it doesn’t matter. ‘Unbroken’ is the story of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (portrayed by Jack O’Connell). RELATED: Angelina Jolie named as an Honorary Dame by Queen Elizabeth.

Mr. Zamperini was an Olympic athlete before going off to fight in WWII. The plane he was flying in crashed, and he was found but by the wrong side: the Japanese. That led to a stint in a prisoner-of-war camp. Can you IMAGINE having all of those experiences? He died just last July 2, 2014, at the age of 97. Angelina told EW she showed him the film on her laptop while he was in the hospital. I’m glad he got to see it.

This is a UK trailer, which is why you see the references to opening on Boxing Day. Take a look. This MUST be on your list of holiday movies.

Channing Tatum Talks About His Physicality, Acting & Growing Up

Channing Tatum Heads To His NYC HotelActor Channing Tatum is still going full steam, career-wise. He has two movies coming out: the possible Oscar contender ‘Foxcatcher’ and the animated movie ‘The Book of Life.’ He’s filming the highly-anticipated ‘Magic Mike XXL.’ This guy’s got a lot going on! He chatted in an interview about his role as a wrestler in ‘Foxcatcher,’ his advice to aspiring actors, and growing up with limited financial resources. RELATED: Channing Tatum and ‘Magic Mike’ cast charm the ladies of Savannah.

Channing chatted at length in an interview.

I’ve always negotiated the world very physically, from football to tussling at the playground to taking my clothes off. My dad’s a physical guy. I think that’s how I wanted to see myself as a kid, how I won approval, and it’s no secret that that’s how I got into this business. But over time I’ve been able to develop other aspects of myself, sort of on-the-job training.
“Personally, I like being pushed into corners. It forces you to be creative. Being a stripper exposed me to a lot of people I might never have met, and that has turned out to be a gift. There are lots of characters I feel I can play as a result. So when people tell me they want to act, I’m like, ‘Okay, if you want to act, go see America. If you can afford gas money, go talk to people and see how they really live.’
“Sure, you can go to theater class at a young age. That’s not how I did it. I would have loved to learn things earlier than I did, but then maybe I wouldn’t have gone and done the things that gave me insight into what it is to be human — to have fears and wants. Like the fear of asking a girl out on a date when I can’t afford dinner at Chili’s, so instead maybe we go to Checkers and I make it cool by turning it into a picnic, put the burgers in a basket of my mom’s and try to make it romantic. That’s the kind of worry I used to have.”

You know, what Channing has said further supports my impression of him: this is a guy who knows how to MAKE things happen. Think about it. His breakthrough role was supposed to be ‘G.I. Joe,’ but the movie didn’t do well. A lot of actors would have faded away at that point or moved to TV (think the former ‘Superman’ Brandon Routh). Yet Channing moved into action comedy with the ’21 Jump Street’ and then wrote and starred in ‘Magic Mike,’ which is based on his past as a stripper. They ended up having to write him back INTO the ‘G.I. Joe’ sequel.

This is a guy who knows how to Make It Work. His success is well-deserved.

Star: Ben Affleck & Emily R ‘spent a lot of time together in their trailers’

star_benjenoct
I finally had the chance to see Gone Girl last weekend. I agree with Kaiser that it was an entertaining, engrossing film that did justice to the book and that Affleck did a great job as Nick Dunne. So it looks like Ben’s leading man status is cemented again, considering that his film dominated the box office for two weekends. That also means that Affleck is tabloid fodder, as usual. This week Star Magazine is running the cover above, on the alleged state of Ben and Jennifer Garner’s marriage, with the title “The Fight To End All Fights.” It’s hard to keep track of how many times Garner and Affleck have covered Star, but I do know that their “Marriage Crisis” also covered the mag in May, right after Ben was busted counting cards in multiple casinos. According to the new issue of Star, Ben and Jennifer are fighting over his gambling as well as his seemingly close relationship to his onscreen mistress, Emily Ratajkowski. Star doesn’t outright accuse Ben of cheating, but they hint that there’s something going on. Here are some excerpts from their cover story:

It’s suspicious that they have been talking about each other
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have been gushing about each other in interviews lately… it seems especially out of character… insiders are whispering that their lovey-dovey talk is designed to hide their rel-life marital crisis. “They have a lot of pressure on their shoulders to publicize the heck out of these movies, and in doing so they need to appear to have a picture-perfect marriage,” one source explains. “But really, Jen is unhappy, and she doesn’t trust Ben.”

Jen is “devastated” over Ben’s relationship with Emily R
The trouble with Emily, 23, started shortly after Ben handpicked her to play his lover in the movie… “When Jen learned secondhand that Ben had picked a hot model for the role, she flipped… Ben tried to calm her down, but she was in tears. She’s still devastated…

Ben got “extremely close” to Emily
“They definitely got extremely close during filming. They were always flirting and laughing together, just like two kids… There wasn’t much to do in town, so Ben and Emily just spent a lot of time hanging out together in their trailers or at the hotel. Away from the Hollywood spotlight, they had a lot of privacy…

“If Jen found out that he and Emily did have an affair, she would definitely divorce him,” says the insider. “She’s put up with his crap for many years, so you’d better believe the divorce would be nasy.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, October 27, 2014]

After that Star gets into Ben’s gambling issues and how Jennifer allegedly has a problem with his gambling. Ben has admitted to being “obsessive” over Blackjack but he’s tried to claim that he’s not addicted to it. As for whether he had an affair with Emily or not, I don’t think he did but it’s an easy narrative. She has definitely gushed about him in interviews. We know Ben cheated on J.Lo with Canadian strippers 10 years ago. There were rumors about Ben and Blake “Antebellum” Lively during filming for The Town, but those were somewhat circumstantial and weak. I want him to have changed! Plus I doubt that Jennifer is “devastated” or that she’s preparing to divorce Ben. She’s been game to pose for kissy pictures and talk him up in interviews. She’s not leaving anytime soon.

In more verifiable news, Affleck is confirmed to play Batman in yet a second film, The Justice League Part One, to be released in 2017. He’s still filming Batman v. Superman, which is out in 2016. I think he’ll actually do a decent job as Batman, but we’ll have to see.

Frances McDormand on plastic surgery: It makes me ‘full of fear and rage’

Frances McDormand

Frances McDormand is promoting her new miniseries, Olive Kitteridge. The project is about a family who lives in a New England town where not everything is as safe and sound as it seems. The town’s residents are all having affairs and enduring various tragedies. Frances did a new interview with the New York Times where she calls the miniseries “a subversive act” because it provides so many aging actors with roles. Frances is 57 and keeps a low profile for a woman who’s married to a Coen Brother.

Frances may appear in many of Joel Cohen’s movies (I loved her in Burn After Reading), but she’s not getting the roles because she’s married to the director. Frances is immensely talented. She won the Oscar for Fargo and hid her award behind a bunch of books on an obscure shelf. She sometimes dresses it in “a cowboy outfit” for fun but mostly ignores it. Frances was also nominated for Almost Famous and two other movie roles. She’s a good egg, as they say. Here are her feelings on aging and plastic surgery:

On aging in Hollywood: “We are on red alert when it comes to how we are perceiving ourselves as a species. There’s no desire to be an adult. Adulthood is not a goal. It’s not seen as a gift. Something happened culturally: No one is supposed to age past 45 — sartorially, cosmetically, attitudinally. Everybody dresses like a teenager. Everybody dyes their hair. Everybody is concerned about a smooth face.”

Her feelings on plastic surgery: “I have not mutated myself in any way. Joel and I have this conversation a lot. He literally has to stop me physically from saying something to people — to friends who’ve had work. I’m so full of fear and rage about what they’ve done.” Looking old, she said, should be a boast about experiences accrued and insights acquired, a triumphant signal “that you are someone who, beneath that white hair, has a card catalog of valuable information.”

Her early career: “I was often told that I wasn’t a thing. She’s not pretty enough, she’s not tall enough, she’s not thin enough, she’s not fat enough.’ I thought, ‘O.K., someday you’re going to be looking for someone not, not, not, not, and there I’ll be.’”

Her marriage to Joel: “I’ve been with a man for 35 years who looks at me and loves what he sees.”

She hasn’t watched FX’s Fargo: “Not interested,” she said, explaining that she’s leery of “the cultural appropriation of intellectual property.”

[From NYT]

It’s completely refreshing to hear a successful actress talk about how ragey they feel when they witness plastic surgery’s effects. A lot of times, actresses will talk about how cosmetic procedures make them “sad” as they Botox their worries away. Frances doesn’t belong to that group. She admits to fear when people look different after doctor’s visits. It IS scary. Frances is one of the only actresses who will speak their mind on the subject. Let me modify that statement. She’s one of the only actresses who says this stuff and isn’t hiding some plastic surgery. She’s no hypocrite in that department.

8-Year Old Reenacts Iconic Dirty Dancing Scene: A Must-Watch!

There are many ways for children to dance in a dirty manner.

If you’re 11-year old Taylor Hatala, you jump, jive and thrust to Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” impressing the Internet with your fast-paced moves.

If you’re an eight-year old named Charlie, however, you recreate Patrick Swayze’s part in one of the most iconic movie scenes in cinematic history: the closing number in Dirty Dancing.

Simply put, the following video is totally awesome and amazing, as Charlie does a spot-on impression of Swayze and is cheered on by his mother, who posted the footage online with the title of “Charlie vs Swayze.”

It’s generated thousands and thousands of Shares and it’s easy to see why:

We had the time of our lives just watching that, didn’t you?

See, parents, what your kids can do if you just take away their iPads and their computers for a bit.

But not too long, of course. They still need to check out The Hollywood Gossip multiple times per day to catch up on their celebrity gossip and everything. The key is finding a happy middle ground.

Katy Perry as a Kid


Katy Perry back when she was just Katy Hudson. Yep, that’s her actual last name!

Amy Poehler’s divorce advice from Louis CK is sobering & amazing

Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler is promoting her new book, Yes Please, which is a collection of personal stories and real-life advice. I suspect the advice is meant in a humorous tone and not a prescriptive, Goopy way. In these excerpts (via Radar), Amy talks about her 2012 divorce from Will Arnett. They were married for a decade. She saw him through terrible movies with CGI rodents like G-Force, and that’s a lot to put up with. I’m making light of the situation, of course. Amy talks about how she and Will co-parent their two children, Archie (6) and Abel (4). She discusses her new relationship with Nick Kroll (they’ve been dating for a year and a half). The most interesting part here is the advice Amy received from Louis CK. He was very blunt with Amy during her time of need, but he spoke the truth:

The experience of divorce: “When you are a person going through a divorce you feel incredibly alone, yet you are constantly reminded by society of how frequently divorce happens and how common it has become. You aren’t allowed to feel special, but no one knows the specific ways you are in pain. Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then tossing the whole thing up in the air. The process of divorce is about loading up that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands.”

Working it out with Will: “I am proud of how my ex-husband, Will, and I have been taking care of our children. I am beyond grateful he is their father; and I don’t think a ten-year marriage constitutes failure.” However, she admits, “getting a divorce really sucks.”

Louis CK’s advice to Amy: “Divorce is always good news because no good marriage has ever ended in divorce.”

Nick Kroll helps her late-night anxiety: “I have a boyfriend who knows how to settle me. He puts his hand on my chest and tells me boring stories…On one of our first nights together I woke up apologizing for my snoring and he pulled out the two earplugs he had worn to bed so that he could hear what I was saying. It was one of the most romantic gestures I have ever seen.”

Her book’s dedication: “Thank you to Nick Kroll, who encourages me in all the right ways.”

[From Radar Online]

Were Louis’ words a little bit brutal? Maybe, but he’s not one to sugar coat anything. I think it would be fantastic to have Louis CK as a friend. I would call him up all the time and ask for advice. He’d have to change his number. I still think he said the right thing. Some people believe that every marriage should be saved no matter what. But when a marriage dies, it’s best to realize that there is a good side to the story. Amy’s marriage was already over, you know? Louis let her know that she didn’t have to deal with the pain of enduring it any longer. She didn’t have to mourn a good marriage because she wasn’t in a good marriage. Those are powerful words from Louis.
