Shailene Woodley the Divergent star and the women who is endlessly compared to Jennifer Lawrence (for no apparent reason except they are quirky and they are the leads in YA adaptions), in an interview with Vanity fair revealed that she and Josh Hutcherson where friends when they where younger,

“Divergent” star Shailene Woodley recently revealed in an interview for Vanity Fair’s magazine July issue that she and “The Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson are somehow connected, going back to the time when the actors have been 11-year-olds.

“Josh and I were friends when I was 11 years old, and we sold a movie together that he ended up making, and I didn’t,” Woodley told the publication.

Shailene Woodley, however, added that since at the age of eleven, she and Hutcherson haven’t been able to talk.

The childhood friends did reunite the day before Shailene`s interview she saw Josh Hutcherson most likely at the MTV movie awards that they both attended

In addition to being a box-office powerhouse in two major franchises (as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games and Raven/Mystique in X-Men), critics have consistently praised Jennifer’s acting chops.  She has already been nominated for three Academy Awards at just 23 years old.

According to Forbes, “that combination of action hero and award-winning actress makes Jennifer Lawrence the most powerful actress in Hollywood right now.”

The Top 100 list is calculated using “earnings and fame to rank the 100 most powerful celebrities in the worlds of movies, TV, books, sports, music and modeling.”

trish-summerville-40th-annual-saturn-awards-_4263883

Costume designer Trish Summerville has won Best Costume at the 40th Annual Saturn Awards for her work on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!  The Saturn Awards are handed out by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, and honors top works in their respective genres in both film and television.

Catching Fire actually received seven nominations, with Trish being the only one to come out on top.  It’s not surprising for us fans each time The Hunger Games ‘ films are ignored at award shows in costume or hair/make up categories;  so it was great to see Trish get the recognition she deserves!

Check out the video below to hear her talk about her creative process and Catching Fire‘s amazing costumes.

You can see the full list of winners here.

Lionsgate Launches New Tumblr Page for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’

A new tumblr page for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has just been launched by Lionsgate. You can find and follow it at MockingjayMovie.tumblr.com.

It’ll be interesting to see if/how marketing utilizes tumblr this time around. Remember Capitol Couture during Catching Fire promotion? Right now, it looks like it’s simply repetition from the other official social media pages, so we’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled to see if anything changes!

VIDEO: Replay of Jena Malone & Lem Jay Ignacio’s ‘The Shoe’ Google Hangout

Jena Malone and Lem Jay Ignacio of The Shoe hosted a Google Hangout earlier today. They chatted for over an hour with their fans about themselves, their music, and upcoming projects. Our friends over at Jabberjays.net were able to ask and get an answer to a great Mockingjay related question as well!

Question: “Have you two thought about doing a song for either of the Mockingjay movie soundtracks? (not sure how getting on a soundtrack works)”

Answer (from Jena): “I have thought about it and I actually would love to, so I’ve actually talked to them. I’m like, “So you guys… what do you think about…?” No, but I love what they do. I think that the Catching Fire soundtrack was so beautiful and that score was just so unique. I think any band or artist would be interested to work with them because it’s such a haunting, beautiful story to get to add songs to. It could be fun!”

TheCapitol.PN Adds “Capitol Concerns” Feature + Changes to Social Media and New Photo

A few changes have recently emerged on the TheCapitol.PN including a new photo on the homepage of Peeta and President Snow looking like snowy white statues!

Snow-Peeta-426x580

Along with the photo, TheCapitol.PN has added a new site feature called Capitol Concerns, which lets citizens voice their thoughts and opinions on the topics of Goods & Labor, Enforcement & Safety, Public Figures & Leadership, Ethics & Moral Policy, and History straight to the Capitol!

capitolconcerns

FOLLOWING PRESIDENT SNOW’S OFFICIAL PANEM ADDRESS, THE CAPITOL MINISTRY OF INFORMATION IS LAUNCHING “CAPITOL CONCERNS,” A REVOLUTIONARY INITIATIVE DESIGNED TO IMPROVE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE CAPITOL AND OUR ESTEEMED DISTRICT CITIZENS. TELL US HOW YOU FEEL, WE VALUE YOUR FEEDBACK.

There are also some changes regarding various social media pages. TheCapitol.PN has now been renamed to One Panem on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The individual District Facebook pages have also been absorbed into “One Panem” (some interesting symbolism I think).

What do you think about these changes and the new Snow/Peeta image? Let us know in the comments!

Stanley Tucci Supports ‘Mockingjay’ Movie Split and Says Caesar is a “coward”

IGN recently caught up with Stanley Tucci during the press tour for Transformers: Age of Extinction and talked a little bit about Mockingjay.  

When asked if he thinks splitting the book into two films makes sense, Stanley said, “I think it does make sense to split it into two movies.  You don’t want to cram a lot of information into one.”  Stanley further commented that he thinks Caesar is “terrified” once the rebellion starts and is the “ultimate coward.”

What do you guys think?  Do you think the rebelling districts would completely scare off Caesar?
