A pirate transmission claiming to be broadcasting from District 13 interrupted President Snow’s address to the citizens of Panem earlier today. Snow (Donald Sutherland), flanked by previous Hunger Games tributes Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna Mason (Jena Malone), expressed his belief in the strength of a unified Panem before being abruptly cut off but what appears to have been Beetee Latier (Jeffrey Wright), of District 3. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1 hits theaters November 21.

Lionsgate Films has just dropped the latest in a series of clever Hunger Games propaganda ads courtesy of the Capitol. President Snow (Donald Sutherland) has come with a message imploring its citizens to remember that the Capitol is the “beating heart” of Panem, concerned only with their protection.
Snow is joined by a stone-faced Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) as he reminds Panem that their safety is contingent on the Capitol’s benevolence. The ad comes on the heels of Hunger Games producer Nina Jacobson’s Instagram photo confirming the wrapping of the film’s final day of shooting. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is to be released on November 21, 2014.

Post-Oscar win, JLaw gets dragged back to The Hunger Games
BY NATHANIEL ROGERS
The Hunger Games is not without its charms. Which is a very strange thing to say about a beloved bloody genre franchise about children murdering each other... but then *I'm* not the one suggesting it become a family theme park or inspire a cosmetics line. (Both very sensible and in no way inappropriate spinoffs!) As these things go, it is infinitely preferrable to the Twilight Saga. They're the immensely popular twin (non-identical) poster girls for the increasingly crowded subgenre of YA dystopian fantasies in which a mopey teen passively navigates treacherous waters (and woods) and love triangles with death looming all around her.
Both series trade on grand suicidal gestures ('I'll die of depression/eat the poison berries, if I can't have my man... I swear!') but at least The Hunger Games is self aware. It performs these defiant adolescent gestures with a sly and stately sense of morbid theatricality instead of self-pitying angst and is generally smart enough to express ambivalence about its content beyond the binaries of Team This Boyfriend vs Team That Boyfriend.
But, yes, when we return to the deadly adventures of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) for HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE she is flip-flopping between Boyfriends.
