Jennifer Lawrence New Trailer For ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1′

hunger games mockingjay part 1 trailerHere’s a NEW trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1‘! We see all three of the stars: Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and even Josh Hutchinson. In this trailer, Katniss learns Peeta is alive even as she takes up arms with the rebels. RELATED: Watch Katniss return to District 12.

Something tells me the ‘Mockingjay’ movies are going to deviate the most from the book compared to ‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘Catching Fire.’ It makes sense. The books are all told from Katniss’s perspective. The movies have allowed us to see more than just what Katniss sees for both of the earlier adaptations, and it looks like this will continue to be the case for ‘Mockingjay.’ So much happens in ‘Mockingjay’ that I suspect it necessitated considerable deviation. I bet we’re going to see Peeta in captivity in the Capitol, for example. Can Not WAIT. Check it out!

Matthew McConaughey covers GQ, talks God, rom-coms & the ‘Redskins’ name

MM1

Matthew McConaughey covers the November issue of GQ and it’s one of the most comprehensive interviews I’ve ever read. Full stop. MM gave a lot of decent-to-good interviews last year during his Oscar campaign, but now that he’s successfully rebooted his entire career and become an Oscar-winner, Matthew has thoughts. Deep thoughts. About everything from the name “Redskins” to his rom-com past to God to… everything. You can read the full interview here (prepare yourself for the McConauniverse). Some highlights:

His rom-com past, his early fame: “I’ve never had fears that I was stuck in one thing. I’m sure we’re going to talk about the years when I was in romantic comedies and I was seen as the guy who was on the beach, running around shirtless. I did that. Damn right that was me. I wasn’t scared like, “Oh God, I’m going to be stuck here.” But I was like, I understand at some point that that is in italics now. [The italics part of my life] has two parts. One was the myth that was branded and created. Second, yeah, it’s me. I did Fool’s Gold in Australia, had a summer in Malibu, and made a surfer film—basically, when you edit those all together, it was one continuous ninety-degree day on the beach without a shirt. But also, I worked hard to live in Malibu, California. I’m going to the beach! I’m gonna go surfing! No, I don’t want to wear a shirt. I want to get a tan and feel the sun on my bones. And it’s Tuesday. You’re recording it? Good for you…. I’m not going to apologize for enjoying what I do.”

He’s proud of those rom-coms: “Absolutely. These things aren’t easy. What’s hard is to make them look easy. Those kinds of movies are what they are. They get pooh-poohed by critics. They get pooh-poohed by actors themselves. And in a way I get it, but in other ways it’s completely unfair. There’s a buoyancy you need to make them work. I believe I gave them buoyancy. And some of the shoots were very difficult, with me trying to fight for the balls on the guy…Look, I’m happy if you think I “cruised through” those. I did my work.

Babies are his secret weapon: “Never is a man more of a man than when he is the father of a newborn. Whatever decisions you make in the first six months of becoming a father, double down on them. I mean, you’re meeting the Courier. You’re meeting the Shepherd, the Future Prince. You immediately have something you don’t have to think about. You know what’s important. Bam! And the clarity of that is like, “Whew.” I definitely got more selfish. And at the same time, I think I got more compassionate, which don’t always go together, you know?

Being a lifelong Redskins fan, on whether they should change the name: “Man, it’s twofold. What interests me is how quickly it got pushed into the social consciousness. We were all fine with it since the 1930s, and all of a sudden we go, “No, gotta change it”? It seems like when the first levee breaks, everybody gets on board. I know a lot of Native Americans don’t have a problem with it, but they’re not going to say, “No, we really want the name.” That’s not how they’re going to use their pulpit. It’s like my feeling about gun control: “I get it. You have the right to have guns. But look, let’s forget that right. Let’s forget the pleasure you get safely on your range, because it’s in the wrong hands in other places.”

Whether it would hurt to see the Redskins logo gone: “It’s not going to hurt me. It’s just… I love the emblem. I dig it. It gives me a little fire and some oomph. But now that it’s in the court of public opinion, it’s going to change. I wish it wouldn’t, but it will.”

He goes to church every Sunday: “Yeah. In Texas. It’s non-denominational. It’s based in the faith that Jesus is the son of God, that he died for our sins, but many different denominations come in.

[From GQ]

There’s so much more in that interview. I didn’t want to just give you the motherlode of McConaughquotes, but he talks a lot about going back to church after his kids were born, why he and Camilla decided to marry, how he feels about Lance Armstrong, and whether he thinks vanity is a good thing (spoiler: he believes in vanity). It’s a really fascinating interview and a lot of it is Classic McConaughey because he’s talking about space and time and the waves, bro. As for his stuff about the Washington Redskins… actually, I don’t think there are many Native Americans who are really A-OK with the name. The name needs to be changed. Bro.

Shailene Woodley on taking it off for movies: ‘I’m only 22. My boobs are great’

Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley isn’t the new Jennifer Lawrence, at least not on this blog. Shailene’s off-camera shtick is limited to her earth-child persona and she’s not nearly as interesting as JLaw. That’s sad because she does show serious talent in her films.

I watched White Bird in a Blizzard last weekend. The film’s twist was a gut punch, and Shailene was fantastic. Her performance quality had little to do with how often she disrobed during the movie. She told Hollywood life that she’d never shy away from nudityIf that happened to be part of the story in a really beautiful, grounded, honest way.” This film is very honest, and Shailene loses her top a lot. Here’s what she had to say about her magnificent rack:

Shailene Woodley stars in White Bird in a Blizzard. Forget not understanding the title. The question is, where’s her first name come from?

“My mother saw ‘Shai’ on a license plate, loved it, and tried figuring how to adapt it. Shailo, Shailee, Shailey, Shailette. So it became Shailene.”

She started acting “at age 5. By accident. I grew up in a small suburban California town. I was good in school. I was a nerd. The opportunity came to do commercials, and my parents were supportive.”

About her oft-discussed sexy scene in the movie, it’s “crazy. And sort of wrong. But I felt great doing it. I was not fully robed. And our bodies had no makeup. Who needs makeup? I’m only 22. My boobs are great. They don’t need any help. My parents saw the film. I thought it might be awkward, but they both loved it.”

OK.

Shailene did not arrive for her screening in the usual tight, spangled, designerish, low-cut, crotch-showing loaner dress, borrowed jewelry and teased shellacked hair. It was simple black pants, coat, headband. She’s also an outspoken feminist.

“Women should be there for other women. It’s such cruelty and competition out there. Women must help other women. Not say those ugly things about the others just out of their insecurity. I don’t believe in that.”

Started acting at 5, has a one-off name, parents loved her naked scene, dressed plainly for her screening. Shailene Woodley’s different.

[From Page Six]

Sigh. She’s not wrong. Her rack does look good in this movie, and being 22 years old doesn’t hurt matters. It’s easy to roll my eyes at Shailene’s declaration, but at least she’s not humblebragging. She’s not saying other people think her rack is awesome. She just likes her own rack. There’s something admirable in that statement. Shailene is simply being “open and lovely” with us.

By the way, did you catch how Page Six is trying to erase Shailene’s anti-feminist stance? I wonder if that’s Shailene’s PR people at work.

P.S. Here’s Shailene’s co-star, Shiloh Fernandez. He cleans up pretty well, but this photo makes me want to dunk him in Lysol.

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.

Julianne Moore as President Coin


This is our first look at Julianne Moore in Mockingjay. It’s safe to say we’re excited for the film.

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.
