Fox may have lost American Idol, but it hasn't given up on singing competition reality shows just yet. Just like Lionsgate hasn't given up on more Twilight or Hunger Games movies. These are today's PopBits.
The first clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 has arrived, along with Katniss’ first set of orders. In the new clip, which was released to celebrate the first advanced ticket sales for the film, Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss is grouped into her new squad. Meet the Star Squad, comprised of Katniss, Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson).
Not long ago, we heard a report suggesting that Lionsgate is planning on developing more Hunger Games sequels (or prequels, maybe), which makes sense given the franchise’s vast global success. Josh Hutcherson appeared on Conan O’Brien’s show with Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, where he added fuel to the sequel rumor fire.
In addition to being an Oscar-winning actress and the lead of a billion-dollar movie franchise in The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence can now add best-selling singer to her resume. The song “The Hanging Tree” was performed by Lawrence in Mockingjay — Part 1 and later released to radio stations where it debuted at #12 on the Hot 100, and on iTunes where it sold over 1 million copies. This are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which travels to District 13 for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay!
