It is going to be one hell of a summer/fall! We have tons of new images arriving from some new films that should, if nothing else, peak your interest. The first is from the new Hunger Games movie Catching Fire starring Jennifer Lawrence. The image depicts Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) being held or detained by The Capital’s municipality. I wish I could speculate as to when and where this scene takes place, but I opted out of reading the second book, just because I figured they weren’t gong to follow it that closely and as you all know, they didn’t.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymor Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland. Catching Fire opens November 22nd.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
The second image comes from the sudo-anticipated, but will probably be on everyone’s radar as soon as the trailer hits, 300: Rise of an Empire directed by Noam Murro. The image shows actor Eva Green as the film’s antagonist, Artemisia “on a boat” (ah yeah!) and in one hell of a form fitting body armor. Oh wait…are those immortals in the background?..Hmmm. Although director Zack Snyder (300) is not attached to this film, it is evident that the look he established in the first film is. Duh.
Rise of an Empire stars Rodrigo Santoro, Eva Green, Lena Headey and Sullivan Stapleton. The film releases August 2, 2013.
300:Rise of an Empire After its victory over Leonidas’ 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states.
The third film is from one I have been paying particular interest to, simply because I read Dark Horse titles all the time and when I received word that R.I.P.D (Rest In Peace Department) was being adapted, I was pretty much invested. The image shows Jeff Bridges, Ryan Reynolds doing their Bad Boys thing and with some pretty impressive hardware.
R.I.P.D. stars Jeff Bridges, Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon and Mary Louise Parker. R.I.P.D opens July 19th
R.I.P.D: A recently slain young cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest In Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him.
