    Review: 'The Hunger Games' Is Thoughtful, Thrilling Popular Entertainment That Genuinely Deserves To Be A Franchise

    Complexity and understatement are two criminally under-utilized values in most mainstream movies these days, but they’re at the core of, and the chief reason for the success of “The Hunger Games.” Director Gary Ross, screenwriter of the proletariat presidential fantasy “Dave” and writer-director of ...

    Oscar-Winner Simon Beaufoy Confirmed To Write 'Hunger Games' Sequel 'Catching Fire,' Gary Ross Returning To Direct

    With any franchise that's based on younger actors, getting a steady stream of films is crucially important; without a "Harry Potter" or "Twilight" film every eighteen months or so, you end up with a lead creeping up on their thirties by the time the series comes to an end. An...

    Watch: Full Trailer For 'The Hunger Games' Is Mostly Convincing

    If a trailer's going to bow on "Good Morning America," it feels like you're safe in making some assumptions on the content of that trailer. Something frothy, we would imagine, in the vein of "New Year's Eve" or "Eat Pray Love," perhaps. At the very most...

    EW Debut First Look At Jennifer Lawrence As Katniss Everdeen In 'The Hunger Games'

    Our prayers have been answered, and the daily casting updates for "The Hunger Games," for the most part announcing nobodies who'll barely be in the film, seem to have dried up, with the film's 'tributes' -- those competing in the dystopian blood sports of the title -- now fully cast.

    'Hunger Games' Helmer Gary Ross Sets Up Cyrano De Bergerac Reworking At New Regency

    With the flurry of "The Hunger Games" casting going on in the last few weeks, director Gary Ross is almost set to start filming what seems to be one of the most eagerly-anticipated films of next year, at least to its vociferous fanbase. As long as it succeeds (and, financially, it probably will), Ross will be set to take on any project he wants.

In the kind of move that we're staggered hasn't yet happened, his version would utilize all the social media tools of today in or...

    The process of casting a high-profile, much sought-after role in a major would-be franchise is a complex one, with the advent of movie blogs such as ourselves. Every stage of the process is now as public as it could be, save some kind of weekly reality show documenting it, and it has the side effect of making the casting process seem endless. It's only six weeks or so since rumors of any kind started flying around regarding Gary Ross' adaptation of immensely popular young adult novel trilogy "The Hunger Games," but it's dominated the news to the extent that we're nothing but delighted that a decision's finally been made on the casting of Kat...
