"Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" har fått det nya svenska releasedatumet 29 februari [10 februari i USA]. Det är inte första gången filmen får ett nytt releasedatum, men vi får hoppas att det inte ändras igen.

Dessutom kommer den att heta "Journey to the Mysterious Island" här i Sverige, vilket enligt mig känns väldigt onödigt eftersom jag tycker att ordleken med "2" och "to" är riktigt smart. Ser man på intervjuer med Josh där han pratar om filmen hör man faktiskt att han säger tvåan som "to", och jag förstår inte riktigt meningen med att ändra det om de nu ändå inte ger filmen en ordenlig svensk titel [som till exempel "Resan till den mystiska ön"].

FoxSverige på twitter:

I Sverige heter filmen "Journey to the mysterious island" och nytt datum är 29/2.

Den svenska tidningen Julia kommer nästa vecka att träffa och intervjua Jennifer Lawrence och Liam Hemsworth om "The Hunger Games". Tyvärr blir det ingen intervju med Josh.

Men eftersom jag vet att många av er är tributes så tänkte jag tipsa om att de frågar sina läsare om bra frågor att ställa. Och man kan ju alltid fråga hur de tyckte det var att jobba med Josh eller liknande.

Tidigare i veckan skickade jag iväg ett mail till SF och frågade om midnattsvisningar för "The Hunger Games". Trots att det kanske är tidigt att fråga redan nu ville jag låta dem veta att det åtminstone fanns önskemål om det.

Jag fick snabbt svar att det inte kommer att äga rum någon midnattsvisning på premiärdagen här i Sverige, det vill säga natten mellan torsdag och fredag [22-23 mars]. Men istället kommer det troligen att vara det mellan fredag - lördag [23-24 mars] och lördag - söndag [24-25 mars] på biografen Sergel i Stockholm och Bergakungen i Göteborg.

Observera att ingen av den här informationen är fastställd till hundra procent, och att detta endast är vad de tror just nu.

"Detention" har fått åldersgränsen "R" i USA, vilket betyder 17 år utan vuxet sällskap. Anledningen till detta kan ni läsa nedan.

Detention på Facebook:

Official MPAA rating on DETENTION: "R for bloody violence, crude and sexual content, nudity, language, some teen drinking and drug use."


Observera att en R-Rating i USA inte nödvändigtvis betyder 15-årsgräns i Sverige då filmerna bedöms som olämpliga på helt olika sätt i olika länder. En film som klassas från 17 år i USA kan tex visas från 7 år i Sverige.

"Detention" har inget releasedatum varken i USA eller Sverige ännu.

Get to know fall's hot guys!

There are a lot of really cool movies and TV shows coming out in the next few months. Even better? There are a ton of crush-worthy hot guys in all of them. Here's what you need to know before you fall in love.

Josh Hutcherson
Age: 18
Hometown: Union, Kentucky

Where you'll find him: In "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island", with Vanessa Hudgens in theaters February 10, and then starring as Peeta in "The Hunger Games", in theaters March 23.

On love at first sight: "I don't think I've had love at first sight. But, I've definitely had moments where I've see a person, and I'm like, 'Wow, there is something different about you, and I really want to get to know you'. I haven't really gained up the courage to talk to those girls. I still get a little nervous when talking to girls. Which is awful, and embarrassing, because I feel like I shouldn't."

On Peeta's Love for Katniss: "That kind of love, I haven't experienced, except with my family, thus far. But, I definitely look forward to the day at one point, where I get to meet a girl where I have the same love for her that I have for my family. Because, that love I have for my family is undying, unconditional. You know my little brother can get pretty hot headed sometimes, and you kind of want to punch him. But, you love them so much you'd do anything for them."

Josh's "Journey 2"-costar Dwayne Johnson pratar kort om hur Josh och Vanessa Hudgens är som personer i en intervju med MovieWeb. Läs nedan vad han hade att säga om skådespelarna.

Set visit: Journey 2: The Mysterious Island - Part 2

When we last left off on my "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" set visit, we had spoken with actors Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Hudgens, and Michael Caine. During another setup, we had the chance to chat with Dwayne Johnson, who plays Hank Parsons, the stepfather to Josh Hutcherson's character, Sean Anderson. Dwayne Johnson is no stranger to both action and family fare, and the actor had just come off another big-budget sequel before flying to Hawaii for "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" last December.

What's it like to work with actors who are on the cusp of huge stardom, like Vanessa and Josh? Is it fun to see them where you were, 10 years ago?
Dwayne Johnson: It's an exciting time for them, and I can appreciate that. I can also appreciate the layers of humility that they have, especially for young actors at that age, who are gracious to the crew, and very appreciative and aware of the position they're in. It's great they're able to remain humble, and I see that in both of them.

"Journey 2" set visit: Josh Hutcherson & Vanessa Hudgens

Josh Hutcherson's got a good thing going in Hollywood: along stints with compelling dramatic films ("The Kids Are All Right") and a potential blockbuster franchise ahead ("The Hunger Games"), he's also got a shot-in-3D sequel to his hit 2008 film "Journey to the Center of the Earth". For "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island", Vanessa Hudgens is at his side (not to mention Dwayne Johnson and Michael Caine), and ComingSoon joined the young actors in the tropical rainforests of Hawaii to get the scoop on their collaboration.

Is it true that both you've been injured on set all ready?
Josh Hutcherson: Slightly. Not injured. Hurt, I'd say. Injury I think is a long term thing. We were doing a scene at this place called Eternity Beach which is a beautiful location and there's this little cave that we kind of go in and check out. We got into the cave and did that scene and cut and coming back out they were like, 'Watch your heads?' I was like, 'Oh, I'm not that tall. I'm not going to hit on anything,' but I stepped on a little bump, I guess and then I hit the top of my head so hard I fell straight to the ground. I didn't remember the fall and stuff. I just remember hitting my head and then being on the ground. Then Dwayne was like, 'Oh, my God, are you okay?'
Vanessa Hudgens: I was a few feet away and heard a massive thump. That's never a good thing! Then we were shooting a scene down on the same beach and there are just lava rocks everywhere. I was walking backwards. Very smart. Before I knew I was on the floor. I got up and brushed it off like nothing happened and then later on someone pointed at my leg and said, 'Is that real blood or fake blood?' Now I have a beautiful scar to show for it. We'll always remember this movie. It'll always be a part of me.

Were you guys glad to get into the jungle and do the down and dirty stuff?
Hutcherson: Totally. It's really fun. We've been covered in mud now for most of the entire movie, which sounds like fun at the beginning, but then after about day thirty of being in mud it's like, 'I'm sort of over it.' But we've been all these beautiful places and it's usually really nice out. For me, I'm personally a huge fan of rainy weather. So I'm loving this right now.

Do you feel a big sense of responsibility to this film now that you're sort of the sole one from the original?
Hutcherson: Not really. I mean, I'm really proud to be the returning one, but the cast that we have now is such a cool hodgepodge of different cultures coming together with Michael Caine, Dwayne and Luis Guzman, this kind of whole weird, like, 'What? He's in it and He's in it?' So, it's this cool mix and I'm really proud of it, for sure.

Luis is a great character actor. How is your relationship with him on and off screen and how did you guys work that?
Hudgens: Luis is unlike anyone I've ever met before. He's just so funny. He's always cracking jokes and is always doing improv, which is a lot of fun. He's just an easy guy to get along with. You talk to him for a few minutes and you can't help but love him.
Hutcherson: He's so funny. Brad [Peyton], our director will give him some direction and he's like, 'I'll think about it. I don't know.' It's so funny.

This is the second really physical film for you in a row. Did "Sucker Punch" and all the training you did for that get you ready for this?
Hudgens: It's completely different. That was like shooting choreographed with all the fight sequences and firing guns. There's definitely no guns in this one...
Hutcherson: Except for The Rock's arms. I love calling him "The Rock."
Hudgens: We're riding bees in this one. So, no, it's different. This is fun. This is just kind of like "funning" around and having a good time. It doesn't hurt as much.

MTV har nu släppt en till del från deras "New Class"-intervju med Josh, där han bland annat pratar om kläderna han har på sig i arenan i filmen och alla "Hunger Games"-fans.


"Hunger Games" has "best fans", Josh Hutcherson says

It's been an exciting couple of weeks for "Hunger Games" fans, what with new posters to analyze, star Josh Hutcherson talking about how he felt "so right" for the role and of course, the debut of the film's first full-length trailer.

And now we have more from our exclusive interview with Hutcherson, in which we discuss a certain boy on fire and how thankful he is for the "Hunger Games" fans.

What can you tell us about that costume in the arena?
The costumes in the arena are very practical, which they had to be, not only for the purpose of the characters but also for us as actors because sometimes it was 95 degrees in the forest, and you're running around and you want to make sure you're wearing the right clothes and the appropriate attire and the right kind of shoes and everything. So we made it very real.

What about the one that is on fire?
The one that's on fire, I don't want to say anything about that yet, you'll have to wait for it. It's very cool, I promise you. It's very cool.

Have you been following any of the fan fervor surrounding the film?
Obviously the fans are crazy about it, which I'm really excited for them to see it. But for me, I stay away from a lot of that stuff, just because I don't really look at it all that much. But I hear some things people are saying, and it's pretty cool. It's exciting to hear people are that interested in something you're doing, so it's a little nerve-racking, but I'm onboard. The fans for "The Hunger Games," they're die-hard. They're the best fans in the world so I'm really excited for them to see the movie.

Enligt Dealine strävar Lionsgate efter att få Simon Beaufoy att skriva manuset till "The Hunger Games" uppföljar "Catching Fire". De skriver också att Gary Ross även kommer att regissera den andra delen i serien.

Beaufoy är mycket väl respekterad i branshen och har blivit flerfaldigt nominerad i och även vunnit under både BAFTAs och Oscars för filmer som "Slumdog Millionaire" och "127 Hours".

Observera att detta inte bekräftats av Lionsgate och att de ännu inte har skrivit någon kontrakt.

Lionsgate courts Simon Beaufoy to script "The Hunger Games" sequel

Lionsgate is getting serious about the second installment of "The Hunger Games". The mini-major is courting Oscar-winning "Slumdog Millionaire" scribe Simon Beaufoy to write "Catching Fire", the second installment of the three book series that tracks the life and death adventures of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence).

I'm told that Gary Ross, who directed "The Hunger Games", is coming back for the sequel. He originally intended to write the outline for the second film and script it with author Suzanne Collins (they teamed to do a lot of writing on the first film), but the post production schedule on "The Hunger Games" has made that difficult. The film opens March 23.

There is no start date on the sequel, but it is high priority. Ross and producers Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik then focused on Beaufoy. Negotiations haven't begun yet, but Lionsgate is pushing hard for Beaufoy. Aside from "Slumdog Millionaire", Beaufoy also scripted "127 Hours", "The Full Monty" and most recently adapted "Salmon Fishing" in the Yemen.

Official Synopsis

In this follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit "Journey to the Center of the Earth", the new 3D family adventure "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" begins when young Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson, reprising his role from the first film) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist. It's a place of strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes, and more than one astonishing secret.

Unable to stop him from going, Sean's new stepfather, Hank (Dwayne Johnson), joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzmán) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.

"Journey 2: The Mysterious Island", is directed by Brad Peyton ("Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore"). It also stars Michael Caine as Sean's grandfather, Alexander Anderson, and Kristin Davis as Sean's mom, Liz Anderson.

The film is produced by Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson, and Charlotte Huggins, from a screenplay by Brian Gunn & Mark Gunn, story by Richard Outten and Brian Gunn & Mark Gunn. Serving as executive producers are Richard Brener, Michael Disco, Samuel J. Brown, Marcus Viscidi, Michael Bostick and Evan Turner. David Tattersall ("Gulliver's Travels") is the director of photography; Bill Boes ("Fantastic Four"), the production designer; David Rennie ("National Treasure: Book of Secrets"), the editor; Denise Wingate ("Wedding Crashers"), the costume designer; and Academy Award© nominee Boyd Shermis ("Poseidon"), the visual effects supervisor. Music will be composed by Andrew Lockington.

"Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" is a New Line Cinema presentation of a Contrafilm production and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

The Actor: The fresh-faced star of such family-friendly fantasies as "Bridge to Terabithia", "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" and "Cirque du Freak", Hutcherson recently scored critical acclaim for his part in Oscar-nommed domestic drama "The Kids are All Right".

Why So Hot? As well as appearing alongside Vanessa Hudgens and The Rock in sequel "Journey 2", Hutcherson will play Peeta Mellark in teen action franchise "The Hunger Games". His character is an ally of Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen and one third of a love triangle involving Liam Hemsworth's Gale Hawthorne. It's like Edward vs. Jacob all over again...

Fan encounter

Yesterday we got up bright and early and headed to the "Good Morning America" studio in Times Square to see Josh Hutcherson and watch the premiere of "The Hunger Games" trailer up on their jumbotron. It was totally worth it, too! Josh showed up early enough to take plenty of time for pictures and autographs with the group of fans who were waiting for him, and I was the first one to get a picture! (You can see video here!) He was a bit shorter in person than I imagined, but he was very cute and sweet which was really nice. I hope he stays that way once "The Hunger Games" blows up, because he seems to be a really genuine person and I think that he will make a lot of fans happy come press and promo time next year. Lionsgate people were there and they also gave us Katniss posters and Mockingjay pins!

After we met Josh while he was arriving we headed into the Times Square pedestrian plaza under the jumbotron that they had set up for the trailer reveal and waited. Once they brought Josh out they put the flaming Mockingjay symbol up on the screen and we all went nuts! Somewhere there is video of us freaking out over every second of the trailer – squealing over Katniss and Gale in the woods, sobbing over Katniss volunteering for Prim, dying for Effie, the Capitol, the arena. Rue. Cinna. It was completely overwhelming and I have seen the trailer so many times in the past 24 hours and I still get just as excited and overwhelmed. March cannot come fast enough! If you live under some sort of heavy rock and have not seen "The Hunger Games" trailer, click here immediately.

I en ny intervju med Vanity Fair pratar Josh bland annat om om att bli regisserad av Gary Ross, att jobba med Jennifer Lawrence och att spela in en så stor film som "The Hunger Games".

Josh Hutcherson on "The Hunger Games'" Peeta: "I've never felt more right for a character in my whole life"

Josh Hutcherson - the teenage star of "Bridge to Terabithia" and "The Kids Are All Right" - appears this spring in "The Hunger Games", alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth. He talked to senior West Coast editor Krista Smith about being directed by Gary Ross, how he got the part, and his love for fellow Kentuckian Lawrence. Highlights - and view the trailer at the bottom of the chat.

Thank you for calling me in such a timely fashion!
Oh, I am a prompt person!

Especially in an actor, that's fantastic.
It's not very often, but there are some of us out there.

I remember you from "The Kids Are All Right" - I love that film.
Right on, thank you. That was a while ago. It was a good time, though.

Tell me about getting this role.
It was a very rigorous auditioning process. I've been a fan of the series for a little while now, and I went in and I met with Gary and Suzanne [Collins, the author of "The Hunger Games" books] and a couple of the producers initially, and I did a little audition. It was great, and I really hit it off with them and felt really good about it. And then a couple weeks went by, which were brutal. And then they brought me in to do a screen test, basically, with Jennifer, where I read with her... And then I had to wait another couple of weeks or so before I found out that I got the part. And that was brutal, after doing a screen test. I think it was actually about a week and a half, [and] waiting to hear anything was just, like, ugh. Because I wanted it so badly, and all that time just lying there, waiting to see what happens, was pretty rough.

Have you read the books?
I don't read a whole lot of books, because I'm usually busy reading scripts, but these books were so good that I literally read all three of them over the course of five days or something. I really powered through them. And while I was reading the books, my mind was being blown as to how much I felt like I was like Peeta, and how I felt like I could relate. I've never really felt more right for a character in my whole life. That, in a way, is kind of even more scary, because if you don't get hired, it's like, Oh my God, what am I? What am I doing? What's wrong?

And how is it working with Jennifer?
[She] and I totally hit it off. We're both very crazy people - we don't really hold anything back. Which is really great. We were able to have a really good time, and not let anything get in the way of it looking stupid or anything like that. We probably look stupid like 99 percent of the time, but we have a good time doing it - so it's worth it.

Fan encounter via HungerGamesDWTC

My husband, David and I decided to go prepared. He painted a super awesome sign, and I crocheted a scarf for Josh.

We arrived at "GMA" studios in Times Square at about 6:25 - the crowd was pretty small, but there were some other die hard "Hunger Games" fans in attendance. Lionsgate reps showed up around 7:00, and handed out Mockingjay pins and posters to everyone there. A lot of the audience was unfamiliar with the movie, so I fielded a lot of impromptu questions.

At 8:00 we were moved from the main "GMA" audience corral to the outside segment spot. I was right up against the barrier, and made it on TV a couple times!

Josh came out at 8:30, and we were so distracted, that we missed the trailer completely (we also had no audio feed where we were). Josh spoke with the hosts, and then did a segment where he donated a coat. They had a "stock" coat for him to put in the box, but he insisted on donating the coat he wore to "GMA".

After they finished with "The Hunger Games" segments, Josh stayed and signed ALL THE AUTOGRAPHS. When he made it over to me, I was able to give him the scarf (he wore it the rest of the time he was outsie), and get him to sign some autographs! When I told him I was from "DWTC", he said he remembered meeting a couple of 'super sweet' ladies in North Carolina over the summer - our own Mary and Flo!

As if the trailer wasn't proof enough, Josh is Peeta. He was so nice and humble and down to Earth, and was genuinely excited to meet and speak with fans of the series.

Fanet Macy har delat med sig till HungerGamesDWTC av när hon träffade på Josh inne på Urban Outfitters i Los Angeles.

Fan Encounter

[I] went up to him and I said, "I'm sorry, but are you Josh Hutcherson?" and he said "Yeah, I am" and I seriously freaked out. Out of the million things running through my mind I just said "I love you!" and he sort of laughed and shook my hand and asked my name. We were talking a little and I said "I am obsessed with 'The Hunger Games"!" He told me that he just watched a clip of it and he is excited and knows that I am going to love it.

I said "My sister is going to die when she hears I met you!" and he says "Oh no, I don't want to be the cause of anyones death!" It was so funny. I was trying so hard to hold it together and be calm and cool but it was so hard! I got a picture with him too. He is honestly so nice and funny and cool and exactly like Peeta. I really wanted to tell him so many things and Peeta is my favorite character but my brain stopped working and my hands were shaking it was insane. It was just so unexpected! The craziest part was that no one else in the store recognized him. I asked the cashier if she knew who that was and she looked at me like I was crazy. But in a year from now, she will most definitely know who he is!

I seriously adore him and he was so sweet. Peeta is my favorite character. I admire him for his strength and my heart just sort of breaks for him throughout all the books. I know Josh is going to be fantastic in the role.

I almost didn't go shopping that day. I almost didn't go into that store. I almost didn't look over my shoulder and happen to see him. It was all a crazy coincidence and I still cant believe it. I admire him so much as an actor and a person. Seeing young adults following their dreams and succeeding has really pushed me to follow mine to become a director or cinematographer and maybe if I'm lucky enough I'll get to work with him!

"Hunger Games" director Gary Ross on Jennifer Lawrence's powerful acting: "It's like looking into a blast furnace"

Tell me - how did you get into "The Hunger Games"?
I read the book. My kids turned me on to it, and I went nuts. I guess, about a year ago. I literally read it and said, "I have to make the movie."

And what's been the best part so far?
You rarely get a tentpole that has this much emotional depth, this much character to dive into. The character of Katniss is... incredible. Suzanne [Collins, the author of the books,] did such an amazing job, and painted such a vivid character that I think for me and Jen... It was just exciting every day. Not just from a pure filmmaking perspective, but also just in terms of the depth of the acting and exploring the character.

[...]

You also have Josh Hutcherson in the part of Peeta.
He kind of reminds me of a young Jack Lemmon. There's this incredible versatility to him; he's wise beyond his years, he's sort of mature beyond his years, and there's just such a natural ease to his acting. He's so comfortable.

"Hunger Games" role is 'so right' for Josh Hutcherson

All right, "Hunger Games" fans, are you ready for a little exclusive interview with soon-to-be superstar Josh Hutcherson?

We've been hinting about it ever since we named Hutcherson "Most likely to play a superhero" as part of our New Class, and the time has finally come to unveil this nifty bit of footage that will have you convinced (if you weren't already) he's one to watch in 2012.

For those unfamiliar with the talented 18-year-old, he made a splash in Hollywood last year with his buzzed-about performance in the award-season darling "The Kids Are All Right," and now he's embodying the pivotal and beloved role of Peeta Mellark in the highly anticipated big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' dystopian best-seller "The Hunger Games."

MTV News was very lucky to catch up with Hutcherson recently, when he discussed the importance of landing the role, what Peeta means to him and his favorite scene to film.

Talk to us about what the role of Peeta means to you and why you love him.
It's so crazy. When I read the books, I had never read a character that was more like who I am as a person and had kind of my core values and what I believe in. So it kind of drove me crazy in a way, because I felt like I was so right for it, then I had to go through this crazy audition process. So to finally be making the movie and now we're finished, it's like, somebody please pinch me, because I still don't believe this is actually happening. For me, it's just an honor to be a part of such a great story. Gary Ross is such an amazing director, and Jennifer Lawrence is perfect, and everyone else we cast was really great.

What was the audition process like? Did you do specific scene work?
For the audition process, I came in the first time and read a few scenes for Gary Ross and [author] Suzanne Collins and some of the other producers involved. Then maybe about a week or so, maybe two weeks later, I came in and did a screen test with Jennifer, where I actually read the scenes with her so they could see how the chemistry worked. Both of them felt really great, but as an actor, you just pick apart every single thing that you do, so for me, I was on pins and needles waiting to find out. And then when I finally found out, my jaw hit the floor. I was so excited.

What were your favorite scenes to film?
It's very similar to the book. Probably my favorite scenes are all the scenes with myself and Katniss in the cave, because they're really emotional and you get to see a lot of their relationship develop there, so for me as an actor, I liked that a lot. And then of course all the physical running through the forest -- that was really fun as well.

Did you guys get a lot of bumps and bruises from all that stunt work?
There were tons of bumps and bruises, yeah. It was pretty intense.

På måndag kommer Josh att befinna sig i ABC's studio och presentera en sneak peek på "The Hunger Games" trailern någon gång mellan 8-9 AM [14:00-15:00 svensk tid] i "Good Morning America".

I texten nedan står det att det är hela trailern, men i programmet tidigare idag meddelade de att det endast var en sneak peek. Vi får helt enkelt vänta och se vad det blir!

"Good Morning America" to debut world exclusive of "The Hunger Games" trailer

Lionsgate, a leading global entertainment company, today announced an exclusive partnership with ABC's "Good Morning America" to world premiere the highly anticipated trailer for "The Hunger Games".

The debut will be hosted in person by actor Josh Hutcherson ("The Kids Are All Right"), who plays the pivotal character of Peeta Mellark in the film, in the top rated 8:00 hour of the show on Monday, November 14th. In addition to airing nationwide, the trailer will also be shown in its entirety on Good Morning America's jumbotron in New York City's Times Square.

The partnership, which further distinguishes the film as a major motion picture event, will mark the first time ever that audiences will be exposed to sights and sounds from the film such as Katniss' home District 12 and the opulent Capitol. With 16 million copies of The Hunger Games in circulation, a vast audience of book fans will also undoubtedly tune in for the first chance to hear the beloved characters speak iconic lines of dialogue from its pages.

En användare på Tumblr [länk] postade den här bilden, där det står att trailern för "The Hunger Games" kommer att debutera tillsammans med "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1", vilket är den 18 november.

Om informationen stämmer återstår att se. Tyvärr tror jag inte att vi i Sverige kommer få trailern samma datum då "Breaking Dawn" har premiär här den 16 november och dessutom ska den textas i förväg. Men förhoppningsvis kommer den ut online i samma veva (om det nu stämmer, det vill säga)!

Bloomberg har en artikel där Lionsgate pratar om sina förväntningar på "The Hunger Games" och vad som krävs för att "Catching Fire" ska bli gjord. Trots ett bekräftat releasedatum för ett uppföljare [22 november 2013] gäller detta endast om den första filmen tjänar in minst 100 miljoner dollar. Men de säger dock att de skulle bli besvikna om inte tre eller fyra filmen blev gjorda.

De pratar också om marknadsföringen som planeras för filmen.

Foiling Icahn lets Lions Gate promise shareholders "Hunger Games" worth wait

On this August afternoon, the two men watch a 60-second trailer for what they say is their best hope - "The Hunger Games". It's set in a dystopian future where a totalitarian state forces 24 teens to duel to the death on national television.

"Hey, we've got something really special here," says Feltheimer, 60, Lions Gate's co-chairman and chief executive officer. Burns, 53, the studio's vice chairman, praises Jennifer Lawrence, the 21-year-old actress who plays the film’s bow- wielding heroine. "She looks like she could start a revolution," he says.

Game Changer
"We would be disappointed if we didn't make three or four movies," Feltheimer says.

[...]

The high-end forecast [the studio could earn] would amount to three-quarters of the studio's market capitalization of $975 million as of Oct.10. "'The Hunger Games' could be the biggest catalyst for Lions Gate's profits and share price during the next decade," Marsh says. "It could be a game changer for them."

Scores of Facebook Pages

[...]

Burns, a lanky man with a boyish face that belies his taste for corporate combat, says the movie offers Lions Gate that most coveted Hollywood prize: a reservoir of revenue that can be tapped for years. "Everyone is looking for stability in this business, so if the first one works, then you should have three more that work, and you create predictability in a very unpredictable business," Burns says in his rat-a-tat style.

"Too much heat"

Feltheimer, whose chiseled jaw and deep-set eyes could get him cast in a Western, nods in agreement. He says "The Hunger Games" must hit $100 million in domestic box office sales to justify making sequels. "I'm not too concerned we won't get to that kind of number," the studio head says.

He points to an issue of "Entertainment Weekly" magazine on a coffee table. It features two of the film's hunky young stars, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, on the cover. "There's just too much heat for this property around the world," he says.

[...]

Priciest Picture Ever

"We weren't going to let the violence be gratuitous or the selling point of the franchise,” says Shearmur, who oversaw the Bourne series starring Matt Damon while she was an executive at Universal Pictures Ltd. in 2002. "This is an emotional story about a young girl who sacrifices everything and sets off a revolution she never intended."

Drake also pledged that, unlike major studios, which often shelve projects, Lions Gate would make the picture. "We certainly sold the legacy of scripts and great books never seeing the light of day," Drake says.

Josh är nu tillbaka i sin hemstad Union i Kentucky och idag var han och hejade på Ryle High School's fotbollslag under ett sammandrag då laget har chans att vinna sitt första distriktmästerskap någonsin.

Inte bara har Josh spelat med laget tidigare, utan hans yngre bror Connor spelar numera i det.

Actor lends star power to Ryle soccer team

Actor Josh Hutcherson, of Union, cheered the team at the pep rally.

"I'm a diehard Raiders fan," said Hutcherson, who's appeared in "Bridge To Terabithia" and "The Kids Are All Right". "I went here for a little while, played soccer here - I'm definitely a big-time supporter." Hutcherson's younger brother, Conner, now plays soccer at Ryle.

"Any time I get to come back and live though him, I do, and it's awesome," Hutcherson said.

Idag har både den andra trailern från "The Hunger Games" och den första från "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" lämnats in och klassifierats på den kanadensiska sidan Alberta Film Ratings. De är 2:30 respektive 2:25 minuter långa.

Båda trailerna klassades som G, vilket betyder att de är "barntillåtna". Så troligen kommer vi inte att få se några av de blodigare scenerna från "THG" eller något våldsamt i trailern för "Journey 2". Men detta bör ändå betyda att trailers för båda filmerna snart är här! Kanske till och för inför "Breaking Dawn" vilken antagligen kommer att göra att en stor publik ser dem.

"Journey 2" har även fått en sida på SF [länk].

"Hunger Games" is 'staggering'

One of the things Harrelson liked - in addition to Haymitch, of course - was working with his young co-stars, particularly Lawrence and Hutcherson.

"I think they're just marvelous actors. I think they just knocked it out of the park," he gushed. "Just as people, [they are] about as fun as it gets. They really are fun folks. It's cool, because I've never even done a sequel, and I just signed on to four movies, so we're going to be spending a lot of time together between doing the movies and press and everything, so it's great to love these guys."

"Having done this first one, I can say I do look forward to doing the next one," he added. "It wasn't a chore. It was actually the opposite; it was a lot of fun. They managed to mix business and pleasure really well, that whole group. I'd say we get after it again next year."

Ni har troligen inte ungått att se de nya bilderna från Vanity Fair [länk, länk] samt intervjun tidningen gjort med flera av skådespelarna om hur de fick sina roller [länk].

Det har nu publicerats ännu mer material från deras intervju, där Gary Ross [regissören], Jennifer Lawrence och Josh pratar om "The Hunger Games".


Let the Games Begin!

For those mourning the passing of the "Harry Potter" cycle and dreading the looming end of the "Twilight" saga, Suzanne Collins has come to the rescue with her spellbinding trilogy of novels, "The Hunger Games", "Catching Fire", and "Mockingjay".

The first comes to movie theaters on March 23. The post-apocalyptic drama takes place in Panem, a North American country that is divided into 12 districts. Every year children between the ages of 12 and 18 must enter their names in a lottery known as "the reaping". Each district selects a boy and a girl to compete with the representatives of the other districts in a televised fight to the death. The final victor wins a life free from want. Collins got the idea for the books from watching footage of the Iraq war and reality television. Adapted for the screen by writer-director Gary Ross (Seabiscuit), the films are positioned to be Hollywood's next big teen franchise.

"My kids turned me on to it, and I went nuts," says Ross, adding, "You rarely get a tentpole that has this much emotional depth, this much character to dive into."

Jennifer Lawrence, who received an Oscar nomination last year for her performance in "Winter's Bone", is Katniss, the heroine, who, when her younger sister gets picked in the reaping, volunteers to take her place. "Katniss is an incredible character: she's a hunter but not a killer, a 16-year-old who's being forced into the arena," says Lawrence. "These kids are killing one another only because if they don't they'll die. It's heartbreaking."

Josh Hutcherson ("The Kids Are All Right") plays Peeta, who has loved Katniss since childhood and who is also chosen in the reaping. "I literally read all three books over the course of five days," he says. "My mind was blown by how much I felt I was like Peeta. We shot in the forest near Asheville, North Carolina - a lot of fight scenes, very physically demanding. Jennifer and I totally hit it off. We're both crazy people - we don't hold anything back."

Ross concludes, "My responsibility was to Suzanne and the readers, to give them the same experience they had when they read the book. I was just so lucky that I had the cast I had."

Vanity Fair har släppt ett nytt foto på några av "The Hunger Games"-tributes (spelungdomarna på svenska) samt Gale/Liam, vilket självklart inkluderar Josh! De pratar även om hur de blev castade i filmen.


The young cast of "The Hunger Games"

While the odds may not be in favor of these actors in the arena, they certainly were in the casting room. In what was one of the most-watched casting calls for young actors since "Twilight", auditions for "The Hunger Games" were a battle royale in their own right. Anxious to make the cut, hopefuls went all out: they covered their faces with dirt, put twigs in their hair, and wielded various weapons (including a Nerf crossbow and plastic butcher knife). It was all for the chance to play the "tributes" who fight each other to the death in contests broadcast throughout Panem (the futuristic ruins of North America) in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins's wildly popular young-adult novels. Ultimately, director Gary Ross took a liking to a fresh-faced cast that includes stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, and a host of new breakout actors. Scroll your mouse over their faces to get the basics on the soon-to-be household names, and read about how they got their highly coveted roles.


JOSH HUTCHERSON
Age: 19.
Hometown: Union, Kentucky.
His role: Peeta Mellark, District 12 tribute - born a baker's son, Peeta is known for his bold personality, creative flair, and sweet nature. He is in love with Katniss and goes to extremes to ensure her survival.
On landing the part: "I got to meet ['Hunger Games' author] Suzanne Collins at the first meeting, which was very exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. But I had a great read-through, and then came back to do a test screening a few weeks later. I also hit it off with Jen - the chemistry between the two of us really worked. A couple of weeks went by where I couldnt say a single word about it... then I got the call. It still didn't even hit me, until I walked on set for the first day."
