Josh Hutcherson stars in ‘Detention’ which will hit theaters on April 13th.
Judianna Makovsky discusses costume design in The Hunger Games movie. She talked about the costumes of Effie Trinket and Caesar Flickerman, and Katniss’ ‘girl on fire’ dress.
Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Mystique in X-men:First Class, is expected to film the movie’s sequel in January.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Fox is informing talent agencies Thursday that the studio plans to begin shooting its in-development sequel to X-Men: First Class in January. That means Lionsgate could move forward with an August-September start date for the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire without a conflict for Lawrence, who is set to star in both.
Screen Rant had the opportunity to interview Hunger Games director Gary Ross about handling the challenges of adapting a first-person science-fiction novel with political overtones, into a film that works for all audiences.
Screenrant: This was a tough nut to crack, obviously. The book is so Katniss-centric and relies on her particular understanding of how to play this game. Was there ever a point that you thought about voiceover narration to give us a sense of her internal dialouge?
Gary Ross: “No, never. Because I never wanted you to feel like you were in a movie. I wanted you to feel like you were in the games. I wanted you to feel like you were in her world. I wanted you to feel like you were in the Capitol. And the minute I engage in voiceover, I shatter that and I tell you that you’re in a movie and I create a distance I don’t want. I want engagement not distance. And I felt that I could convey everything, especially with an actress like Jen (Lawrence). I mean, I don’t need to articulate in text what Jen is more than capable of doing in subtext, you know?”
