The New 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Trailer Teases Rebellion: VIDEO

Hoffman

The late Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was filming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, at the time of his untimely death, figures prominently in its first teaser trailer as former head gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee, as he discusses Katniss, rebellion, and other urgent matters with District 13 President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore).

LawrenceDirector Francis Lawrence spoke about how Hoffman's character would be handled last May:

"We finished the majority of his work. I think he might have had eight to 10 days left on our schedule. In most of those scenes, Phil didn’t have any dialogue. We are going to put him into those scenes, but we’re only using real footage. We’re not creating anything digital or a robotic version of him."

The new trailer premiered at Comic Con in San Diego last Friday.

Genius Scene-for-Scene Comparison of Sarah Palin vs. Julianne Moore in 'Game Change': VIDEO

Gamechange

A must-watch!

Here's a scene for scene comparison of Sarah Palin's actual media appearances and Julianne Moore's reenactments of them from the movie Game Change.

Writes YouTuber flammable2002:

"This is for the purposes of revealing the similarities and differences between the reality and the performance. I believe not only does this serve to credit Julianne Moore as an actress, but it also tells us a lot about what happens when real historical events are portrayed through dramatic arts."

It's fascinating to see where Moore hits it (most of the time!) and where she's a little off.

NEWS: Julianne Moore, Anne Frank, And Why The UK's Catholics Don't Want You To Marry

Towleroad-roadicon Julianne Moore apparently does a wonderful Sarah Palin in Game Change:

As it becomes apparent to McCain’s team, via briefing sessions, that she is a know-nothing, they prep her on hot-button foreign policy issues—informing her that we fought Germany in two world wars, for instance. Here, Moore’s Palin takes notes with a diligence that at once enriches the farce and deepens the tragedy. After it becomes apparent to the world, via Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric, that she is a know-nothing, the camera tightens on Moore’s face at canted angles during subsequent tantrums, and we understand her resentment and paranoia. We can’t laugh at the surreal scene of Moore’s Palin watching Tina Fey’s Palin on SNL because the woman alone in front of the set is so, so far away from home—and farther yet from the first-born son who is away at war. He is prepared to die for a nation where she is a national laughingstock. Watching Palin escape a depressive funk by going to sleep—curling fetally on an anonymous floor in a hotel a bathrobe—I wished her sweet dreams, and ultimately found myself rooting for her to do well in her debate against Joe Biden.

Towleroad-roadicon The New Yorker explains how and why the Republican primary went wrong.

Towleroad-roadicon There was a caucus in Kansas today. Rick Santorum won:

Rick Santorum easily won the Kansas caucuses Saturday, which supporters say will give him much-needed momentum for two important Southern primaries Tuesday. With 89 percent of the vote counted, Santorum had 51 percent, compared to Mitt Romney’s 21 percent. Newt Gingrich is in third place with 14.4 percent and Ron Paul fourth with 12.5 percent. Neither Romneyh nor Gingrich campaigned in Kansas. 

Santorum is likely to pick up the vast majority of the state’s 40 delegates, notes the Associated Press. Wyoming is also holding caucuses Saturday and Romney appears to be leading.

If Santorum manages to use the momentum from his Kansas victory to help him win in Alabama and Mississippi Tuesday, “he could solidify his status as the conservative alternative to front-runner Romney,” writes Reuters.

Towleroad-roadicon William Hamilton is dead. (You may not know him, but you definitely know the magazine cover he inspired.)

Anne_FrankTowleroad-roadicon Anne Frank comes to Madame Toussaud's in Berlin:

The new Anne Frank figure is next to that of Sophie Scholl, an activist executed by the Nazi regime for her involvement in the White Rose, a non-violent German resistance group. But Zerbe made clear that the juxtaposition was just a coincidence, and that the museum was not trying to create a historical display. "We want our visitors, and children in particular, to feel an emotional connection with the figure, rather than to feel that they're in a history class," she said.

In a chilling irony, the wax figure of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, which the museum controversially re-introduced after it was beheaded by a visitor shortly after the Berlin Madame Tussauds opened in 2008, is in the next room.

Although John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's book Game Change focused on all the players in the 2008 presidential election, this new trailer for the HBO adaptation makes it clear the film focuses primarily on the McCain/Palin portion of the story.

Says Harrelson, who plays McCain adviser Steve Schmidt: "She's a great actress. Why don't we just give her some lines?"
