The Hunger Games (7)

This is my first time seeing these pictures, and I am VERY pleased.

And the ones that I am most especially happy about:


Looks like Woody has our drunk Haymitch DOWN!
I like how they’re cold toward Effie but seem to have secrets between themselves and Cinna. If stills portray that- I can’t wait for the movie.

I am still worried, however, of what kind of– rating this is going to have. Not to say that I want to see kids getting slaughtered but I want them to stay true to the book. Will know it will mean that they might have less viewers, because I imagine some of the readers are under age but I would imagine to do everything justice, it would have to rated R. I mean– its efin scary- its gruesome…

We shall see.

I also never posted the trailer- so here:

I love how they have Effie just kind of disgusted with having to be there. I almost cried when she volunteered. I was ridiculously impressed with how they ended the trailer with her coming up onto the platform, and you get the littlest glimpse of the others. And I LOVED how they cut to Prim and Gale unable to watch. If a trailer is this good…

I just worry- because only ONCE has a movie every lived up to its books. (Scott Pilgrim)

I also didn’t realize how close it was until the movie comes out! A little over a month! I remember finding out about the movie and thinking, oh no! To long!

I’ve got a list of people who said ‘I have no one else to go with, please go with me’ to the midnight showing- because apparently everyone whos read the books finds it impossible to get any of their own friends to read them. (Don’t deny you tried and failed too)

Goodie for me. Pics and trailers to tease me, and not so long to wait.


Wonder Girls on Teen Nick!

So the Wonder Girls are gonna have a movie on Teen Nick called the Wonder Girls Special I think. Even though it looks like it’s gonna be a battle of the girl groups kind of thing, I’m excited for it! This is great exposure for them in the United States actually. JYP is a smart smart man lol. I just saw this commercial like..yesterday lol I’ve been hearing about it but never ever saw it. Maybe because I haven’t been on Teen Nick as much as I used to. And for you who probably don’t know what Teen Nick is here is one of the trailers!

The show comes on February 2nd!!…I think…google it yourself

…also…JYP is in it too lmao


Rise of the Planet of the Apes

So you guys already know about my undying love for Tom Felton, well after watching the last Harry Potter movie I was left wanting to see more of Mr. Felton.  Luckily, he’s appearing in the new movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes starring James Franco, Andy Serkis, and Freida Pinto! (I have no idea who those people are!!)

According to IMDb this movie is, “An original story set in present day San Francisco, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.”

Some screen shots of the movie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you weren’t frightened by the psycho monkey on the first screen cap, then go watch it!  Tom Felton’s in it as Dodge Landon and it looks like it’ll be good and action-y.  If you’re still not certain then check out the trailer!


Tom Felton on Conan

Watched this the other night and thought I might share.

This was HILARIOUS! Tom Felton reacted perfectly to all the questions Conan asked. I was laughing so hard when Conan mentions fanfictions. I myself wrote Drarry fanfictions in my day and– well, even though my Harry and Draco were written before the movies, it creeps me out to think that actors for their characters might have been reading any slash. Just another reason I’m glad I’m not famous.


Hunger Games Movie Updates (6)

I was traveling through the grocery store, looking at the gum at the check out when I glimpsed what I thought was Katniss. I shook my head thinking that I was imagining things, but alas- another look showed me that:

It IS Katniss! I’m happy with how she looks. I also bought that magazine and read the article, and its ironic, whether she was just saying what we needed to hear, or telling the truth, how much she’s LIKE Katniss. I also understood what she meant about not wanting to get into a movie that becomes popular like Twilight popular. I am REALLY hoping that they make the movies as dark as the books so that it kind of– stops certain ages from being able to watch it… I maaaay let my kids read the books, because maybe they don’t have the imagination I do- but I’d think twice about letting scaring them about there very probable future. haha

Its been months since I read it and I still have nightmares similar to it- or find myself thinking about it and getting freaked out. She told the director though that if they didn’t hire her they better find someone who knows that when Katniss kills she doesn’t act bad ass, she acts broken. This woman knows who she’s playing.

Also, for those of you who that haven’t come across it- our Haymitch:  Woody Harrelson. Ummm, I can deal with it. Not at all what I imagined for him when I read the book, but- obviously not everything can be as I pictured. I am basing that on looks though- I’m possitive that he can pull of the drunk of a teacher that is Haymitch.

They also have a few of the other region kids too- which you can find on the updates IMDb HERE. It doesn’t have who I am most excited about though, which is Rue- Amandla Stenberg. I am actually really happy with both of the 11 tributes.

As I was looking around today, I came across this– which I found interesting. This is what Jennifer has to say about her Peeta and Gale-

“PEETA (Josh Hutcherson): “Josh is so charming,” she says. “He’s so charming! And when you read in the books about Peeta being able to manipulate anybody — I mean Josh could get, well, I don’t know a metaphor for [this scenario] except for dirty ones. But he’s charming, he’s sweet, he’s down to earth, he’s normal. He embodies all of it and brings it all to Peeta. So when you meet him he’s got all of these great qualities and every single one of them come across in every line he says out loud as Peeta.”

GALE (Liam Hemsworth): “Liam is just a solid brick of muscle and you look at him and you’re like ‘Oh, okay great!’” she says. “But he’s got depth and he’s interesting and at the same time he’s natural and he flows.””

I found this to be interesting because, if again she is saying what she truly thinks and is being rightly quoted, our other characters are being played by people similar to themselves.


Peeta and Gale Actors Chosen

If you follow any of the fan sites you are probably already aware of this, but for anyone who might not know. Peeta and Gale have been chosen.

My sister called me to tell me she was going to kill herself over the choices, but after I figured out who they were, I was able to calm her down. She was basing her decision off their looks, which is just rediculous.

Play Peeta will be Josh Hutcherson:

I am SERIOUSLY fine with this. The only thing I have against this is his age, being that he was born in 1990 and so is something like 3 or few years younger then his co-star, Jennifer. But he is the age of the person he’s playing, so its hard. His face and his neck are prefect- and after they put him through intensive workouts and dye his hair blond, he will be practically exactly what I imagined Peeta to look like.

Plus, when he was younger he was in my favorite movie of practically all time, Bridge To Terabthia. Plus he did voice acting for Markl in my other favorite movie, Howl’s Moving Castle. If you haven’t already, check out his IMDb– his work is extensive and I think he will do a lovely job.

And the actor for Gale shall be Liam Hemsworth:

Now this guy is built how I imagine Peeta to look, but I guess Gale is probably fit too. All they have to do with this guy is make him tan and dye his hair black. Hopefully they keep him clean shaven as well- though he is only about a year in age difference from the person he’s playing, so I guess then can keep it…

People might know him from The Last Song- Uh, I don’t remember if he is a good actor- but, he SORT- okay, he doesnt look at all how I imagined Gale to look, but Gale’s not important anyhow. haha


The Hunger Games Katniss Chosen

 We now have our Katniss! Jennifer Lawrence. I thought I remembered posting about her previously, but I guess not. I remember thinking that she was the only one suggested so far that I would be fine with, but also assumed that she wasn’t actually being considered… But anyway, I am completely content with her being Katniss. Her character in Winter’s Bone is practically Katniss. We know she’s beautiful, but we are also aware that she is able to act hard. And most happily, I heard her say in an interview that she needed to learn to skin squirrels for Winter’s Bone!

A lot of people are annoyed that they picked a 20 year old to play her, but- they’re going to pick older people to play Petta and Gale too. You don’t want some child kissing 20’some year olds, do you? Besides- she looks pretty young. I think we’re lucky she doesn’t look forty or something. The book has some mature content that she would be better off playing over a 16 year old anyway.

For some reason, fans were also concerned about her being blond. Why? I don’t know. If she can act, she can be MADE to look like Katniss.

Read the original article. It seems that this Jenniffer is quite a strong and powerful, maternal– all that, person. She is also aware that this is one of those books like Harry Potter and Twilight with many hardcore fans- and that she will be in it for three movies. The casting person said it was the easiest decision she ever made casting her. This makes me very happy. Now then, it is time for me to go watch Winter’s Bone. haha
