“The Hunger Games” Finds its Finnick

22 Aug

I”ll be up-front with you: I’ve never read The Hunger Games. And even I was excited to see which mid-twenties hottie would play Finnick Odair in 2013’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The new character is described as a “mid-twenties hottie with charm for days” so really, what’s not to be excited for?
Today, the winning hottie was finally announced and up-and-comer Sam Claflin is set to be the trident-wielding ex-tribute/current Capitol celebrity.

I will not make any dirty trident jokes. I will not make any dirty trident jokes.

“Aw man all this gazing into the camera really makes my head hurt”

Claflin should look sorta-maybe-kinda-familiar. No, he’s not the guy the played the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network. He is on the other hand, the missionary that fell in love with a mermaid in Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides. Oh yeah, that guy! He also was the Prince Charming to Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman in Snow White and the Huntsman. By next year everyone will definetely remember who he is thanks to a very well placed fishing net.

The soon-to-be-superstar has been the Finnick front-runner for a little over a month. But, that doesn’t mean he was the only name thrown out there this summer. Robert Pattinson (from that other billion dollar teen-trilogy), Taylor Kitsch (whose 2012 movies accidentally tanked like John Carter and Battleship), Garrett Hedlund  (Tron: Legacy) and Armie Hammer (the actual guy that played the Winklevoss twins) were all said to be frontrunners at some point. Luckily for Claflin he wasn’t a red herring.

So guys ladies, I’m just wondering how the camera can handle Liam Hemsworth and Claflin in the same movie. But then again if the screen didn’t burst into flames during Magic Mike, no one else should have a problem.

Whetting Everyone’s Appetite For The Hunger Games

3 Jan

It’s only January 3rd, but Lionsgate is already preparing to own the year. The Hunger Games is about to take off and it wants you excited, nice and early! The first trailer debuted in November, introducing everyone to the three new celebrities they’ll to be obsessed with until forever. AKA, The People  Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner Throw Darts At In The Spare Time. If you didn’t see the trailer featuring Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique from X-Men: First Class), Liam Hemsworth (Mr. Miley Cyrus) and  Josh Hutcherson (Cirque du Freak and The Kids Are All Right) back in November, watch it below!

This week, Lionsgate reminded every one of their megablockbuster by releasing the first set of official images. A subtle little, “hey! Dont forget how excited you are about this!” from the production company. There’s tons of pictures of Hemsworth’s jaw, Hutcherson’s profile, Woody Harrelson with hair, and lots and lots of Lawrence.

I wonder if he can cut things with his jaw. He totally can. Photo Credit: Lionsgate

Should this not remind me of Star Wars and A Clockwork Orange? Photo Credit: Lionsgate

Yes, that IS Woody Harrelson in the middle. Photo Credit: Lionsgate

I don't know what part scares me the most. But it all does. A lot. Photo Credit: Lionsgate

Ignoring the terrifying amount of rose in the last picture, Lionsgate is well on its way to getting America hungry for The Hunger Games (yes, I love obvious puns).
