NEW Mandatory Viewing from CapitolTV: ‘Road Closures’ Surrounding President Snow’s Mansion

CapitolTV  has released a new mandatory viewing alert for the citizens of Panem titled “Road Closures”.  There’s not much “viewing”, it’s mostly a voiceover making an announcement.

Here is what the announcer says:

Starting today, all streets within a six-mile radius of the President’s mansion will be closed for routine maintenance.   All traffic will be rerouted, and no pedestrians will have access to the moving walkways. Anyone caught in the area during the closure will be detained for questioning. You will be notified when the area reopens. Thank you.

“Routine” maintenance, hmm?  Somehow we doubt that!

Any thoughts on the label for Gale as “savior”?  And how about the hacks in general — Are they still interesting, or do you find them a bit repetitive by now?  Leave us a comment and share your thoughts!

Francis Lawrence and Woody Harrelson Share Their Thoughts on Jennifer Lawrence in the November Issue of Vanity Fair

Jennifer Lawrence Vanity FairJennifer Lawrence has her say about the Photo Hack in the November Issue of Vanity Fair, but in the same piece we also get some great comments on our Girl on Fire from both Director Francis Lawrence and co-star Woody Harrelson.

Francis Lawrence talks about why Jennifer was the right person for the role of Katniss:

“I certainly cannot imagine anybody else in that role. I know that a bunch of people [felt] that she was miscast. This was before anybody saw it. I mean, nobody would question it once you see her performance. She really understands the character, and she spontaneously makes these choices which are always so honest and real and nuanced and believable. She picks up on the smallest little details in terms of people and personalities and behavior, and can read people and read a room so insanely quickly.”

Woody talks about Jennifer’s down to earth nature

“She’s just constantly hounded by paparazzi. She’s an amazing girl. She’s one of my favorite people on the planet. [When we first met] she’d done a movie, and people in the industry knew her, but she wasn’t really famous. And so I watched her grow into, amazingly, the biggest female star in the world. And it’s staggering to me how much she’s been able to just hold onto her basic decency and her amazing, marvelous spirit. You know, it’s not terrible, people telling you you’re great; what’s terrible is when you start believing it. She never got fucked up. She’s incredibly vulnerable, but she’s got all these wonderful contradictions. She’s just very forthcoming. It’s almost shocking how much she’ll say, you know. That’s super-fun, and also it’s shocking sometimes because it’s so on the edge. It’s like she doesn’t have a censor. I really love that in people. I guess there are some people I don’t love it in, but in her it’s wonderful.”

Woody also talked about the challenge of trying to break Jen out of character once shooting begins

“I’ve got to admit, I’m a bit of a butthole this way, but I will try to make people laugh sometimes during a scene. But you just can’t make her laugh. The times I’ve tried to, it just shamed me because she was just so completely in the scene. She goes deep.”

We also get an added brief quote from Jennifer about why she never saw herself in the role of Katniss:

“My brothers always say the same thing. They’re like, ‘When we read the book, we didn’t picture you.’ I’m like, ‘I didn’t either.'” She always felt she was “too much of a klutz” to play the skillful archer.

Thanks to Panem Propaganda for the additional quotes!

The Digital Issue of Vanity Fair is available now, the magazine hits news stands October 14th.

New Stills and the Schematics of District 13 from #OLTM App

 

We got a great surprise this morning, when a simple message began alerting fans to update their Our Leader the Mockingjay App.  (If you don’t have it yet, you can download it for IOS or Android).

To access this new content, open the app and click on District 13 Schematic.  This link will open a scanner and for those in the US it will prompt you to scan the Doritos logo on specially marked bags to unlock the experience, but we found you don’t have to actually have a bag, you can scan just the logo on an image of it, just like the one you see here.  For those outside the US, you won’t need to “unlock” the app this way as the Doritos contest is US based, so it isn’t necessary for you.

You’ll then be presented with a scanner which you can use to place the schematics.  You can also download/print this PDF map of District 13 and utilize it as well.  Once you scan the image, you’ll see an interactive 3D hologram which you can swipe through to hunt down lots of new details.

We get a lot of new content in a kind of confusing, a bit hard to access and difficult to use package (well at least for me), but after you get used to it can be fun. For anyone who was curious to see what District 13 would look like, from these 3D schematics we can see how the underground system works as well seeing how the living quarters and Infirmary etc.. look like

We can see these orange 3D strange schematics of the shooting range and the D13 infrastructure.

            

And we also got some great stills of D13

And our absolute favorite…Buttercup gets his own still!

 

What do you think of this latest update?  Are you excited to get a peek into the inner workings of this secretive District?  Let us know in the comments.

Jennifer Lawrence Breaks her Silence on the Photo Hack in an Interview with Vanity Fair

Jennifer Lawrence is goddess like on the cover of  Vanity Fair`s November issue, aside from these amazing photos she also gives an in-depth interview to Sam Kashner who although conducting the original interview with Jennifer weeks before the of hacked photos hit the internet he follow up with to see if she wanted to put her view out there.

“I was just so afraid. I didn’t know how this would affect my career.”

That’s just the beginning of what Jennifer Lawrence has to say about her stolen-photos saga in the cover story of Vanity Fair’s November issue, the digital edition of which will be available Wednesday, October 8, and which hits newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on Thursday, October 9.

Lawrence originally met with V.F. contributing editor Sam Kashner on August 13. News broke that hackers had stolen personal photos of her and posted them online on August 31—two weeks after the interview and a month after her July 29 cover shoot with Patrick Demarchelier. So Kashner followed up with Lawrence’s team in hopes of giving the actress “a chance to have the last word.”

“I could just sense after having spent a little time with her that she would come

The 24-year-old actress had not previously commented on the incident, but she spoke to Kashner at length about the anger she felt. “Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this,” she says. “It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world. ”

She had been tempted to write a statement when news of the privacy violation broke, she says, but “every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for. I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.”

Lawrence also addresses the legal ramifications of the hack. “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime,” she tells Kashner. “It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these Web sites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.”

In the cover story, the Hunger Games star vents her frustration not just with the offending hackers but also with those—including people she knows—who viewed the images online. “Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense. You should cower with shame. Even people who I know and love say, ‘Oh, yeah, I looked at the pictures.’ I don’t want to get mad, but at the same time I’m thinking, I didn’t tell you that you could look at my naked body.”

Lawrence also shares a message for the tabloid community: “You have a choice. You don’t have to be a person who spreads negativity and lies for a living. You can do something good. You can be good. Let’s just make that choice and—it feels better.”

Lawrence speaks of the wrenching moment when she had to call her father about the hack. “When I have to make that phone call to my dad and tell him what’s happened … I don’t care how much money I get for The Hunger Games,” she says. “I promise you, anybody given the choice of that kind of money or having  to make a phone call to tell your dad that something like that has happened, it’s not worth it.” She allows herself to joke a little about that terrible moment: “Fortunately, he was playing golf,  so he was in a good mood.”

With her words now out in the open, the F.B.I. on the case, and  a billion-dollar franchise to carry over the finish line, Lawrence seems to be regaining her footing.

“Time does heal, you know,” she tells Kashner. “I’m not crying about it anymore. I can’t be angry anymore. I can’t have my happiness rest on these people being caught, because they might not be. I need to just find my own peace.”
