Josh Hutcherson plays "Hunger Games" as New Class hump day hottie

Josh Hutcherson is climbing up the cutie ladder, fast. His work on "The Hunger Games" is already earning him fans (and the film has yet to hit theaters!), plus he's just been awarded the "New Class" superlative "Most Likely To Play A Superhero". We'd love to see him in tights, but until that day happens, we'll award him the also prestigious honor of Hump Day Hottie.

Check out this dreamy photo of Josh and keep reading for more details about him!

Vital stats: Soon-to-be 19-year-old Josh grew up in Kentucky and knew from early on that he wanted to act. So that's what he did. He's also a bit of a up-and-coming ladies man. He's been linked to Vanessa Hudgens, and we have to admit she has the best taste in guys.

Now he's one of our New Class inductees, and he seems pretty excited by it. "It's very nice, especially to be considered with the group I'm in here with, all peers of mine I admire very much," Josh said. "I've been an actor for a long time, so to finally get some recognition from some people that I think are really cool is pretty nice."

Where you might have already seen him: He's been acting for about a decade now and has quite the resume, with roles in films like "American Splendor", "The Polar Express", "Journey to the Center of the Earth", "Bridge to Terabithia" and the Oscar-nominated "The Kids Are All Right".

Why you should take notice of him now: Have we not mentioned enough that he's starring in "The Hunger Games"? Oh, we did? Okay! He's also got a bunch of other projects in the works, including "Red Dawn", "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" and "Carmel".

Hypable har listat 10 scener från "The Hunger Games" som de ser fram emot att få se på vita duken. Vilka scener måste - enligt dig - finnas med i filmen?

Ten scenes to look forward to in "The Hunger Games" movie

Continuing our little series of "The Hunger Games" lists is this: scenes to look forward to on-screen. Before you go further, grab a pen and pad and write down the ten scenes you’re most excited for and then see if we got any of the same!

Done yet? Okay! Here are my top ten:

1) The Reaping – I can't wait to see Katniss' face when Prim's name is called, how Effie reacts when she volunteers right away, Gale prying Prim off of her, and then the crowd refusing to clap. Epic, epic moment.

2) The tributes' reaping – Once Katniss, Peeta, Haymitch, and Effie all board their train to the Capitol, Katniss watches the reaping ceremonies of her fellow tributes. While it'll probably be pretty quick in the film, it'll be nice to get an actual glimpse of some of the other districts for the first time. Rue's reaping, particularly, will be something to see.

3) Girl on Fire - Katniss' costume reveal is one of the most important scenes to get right on-screen, for sure. The Girl on Fire effect becomes a staple of the "Hunger Games" storyline from then on, so it's paramount that this moment be done just-so. Done right, this scene will be amazing.

4) Peeta and Katniss on the roof - Peeta and Katniss duck away from the Capitol hoopla to have a one-on-one away from the microphones. That's when Peeta confesses he's trying to save face in spite of it all, foreshadowing an alliance between them. "I'm more than just a piece in their Games." It's a great scene, and we also get a first-glimpse at the invisible shield material... and the chink in it which becomes so important in Catching Fire.

Nu är den äntligen här! MTV News nya intervju med Josh där han pratar om bland annat sitt år, sina förebilder och att provspela för "The Hunger Games". Kara Warner har också lovat [länk] att mer kommer att publiceras nästa vecka!

Förhoppningsis kommer det en YouTube-version av videon snart så att den går att se i Sverige också.

Josh Hutcherson is 'most likely to play a superhero' in our New Class

All things considered, it's a no-brainer that Hutcherson made our New Class list as the "Actor Most Likely to Play a Superhero." MTV News caught up with him recently to talk about the honor, his very busy year and, of course, "The Hunger Games."

You've experienced the whole award and recognition thing before, but how does it feel to be named to our "New Class"?
It's very nice, especially to be considered with the group I'm in here with, all peers of mine I admire very much. I've been an actor for a long time, so to finally get some recognition from some people that I think are really cool is pretty nice.

It seems like this past year has been a whirlwind. Take us through all the projects you're juggling at the moment.
It's been crazy. I shot "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" the end of last year and the beginning of this year, then I went into a little short film I shot in Cuba with Benicio Del Toro ["7 Dias en La Habana"], which was really fun, and then this summer the whole time I spent shooting "The Hunger Games", which was an amazing experience. Very exciting, and I can't wait for that to come out.

Is there someone in the business whose career you'd like to emulate?
I have a few people. I've always been a big Jake Gyllenhaal fan. I like how he goes from doing a bigger studio movie to a more independent film. I am a huge Christian Bale fan; I think he's incredible and can play any role and kill it. And I'm also a die-hard Ryan Gosling fan, so those are my guys I'd like to be like.

Sedan filmbolaget MGM gick i konkurs i slutet av 2009 och valde att inte släppa "Red Dawn"-remaken som Josh medverkar i har inte någon annan distributör vågat plocka upp filmen i rädsla för att uppröra den kinesiska styrningen.

Men efter mycket redigering har de nu lyckats göra om de flesta av de kinesiska inkräktarna till nordkoreaner och FilmDistrict har köpt rättigheterna till filmen. Några avtal har inte avslutats än, men som det ser ut nu kommer filmen att komma ut under 2012.

"Red Dawn" remake to come out next year from FilmDistrict

A remake of the invasion movie "Red Dawn" - with its villains now digitally modified from Chinese to North Korean - will finally hit American shores next year.

The new version of the Reagan-era classic will be released in the U.S. by independent studio FilmDistrict, according to people familiar with the matter but not authorized to discuss it publicly. FilmDistrict is finalizing a deal with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the studio that produced the movie in 2009.

In the original "Red Dawn", a group of teenagers in a Washington town battle invading Soviet forces; in the remake, the invaders were changed to Chinese. But that decision turned the film into a hot potato.

After MGM emerged from bankruptcy in late 2009 and decided it wouldn't release the movie, no other studio wanted to touch "Red Dawn" for fear of offending the government of China, a hugely important market in the increasingly global film business.

As a result, the movie's producers last winter used digital technology and creative editing to change most of the invaders to North Koreans. (Staunchly communist North Korea is economically isolated and not a market for any American products.) Still, it took most of the year to find a distributor willing to take the movie on.

FilmDistrict Chief Executive Peter Schlessel declined to discuss "Red Dawn". Given that final details are still being worked out, however, it likely won't hit theaters until 2012.

The new "Red Dawn" cost about $60 million to produce. It stars Chris Hemsworth, who played the title character in "Thor", and was directed by Dan Bradley, second unit director on the last two "Bourne" movies and the upcoming "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol".

FilmDistrict, which is backed by finance and production company GK Films, launched in April with the horror hit "Insidious". Its most recent release is the Ryan Gosling L.A. noir film, "Drive".

Movie power rankings: "Hunger Games" fights its way to no. 1

Being based on a bestselling young adult novel can't be easy for a movie. Fans pore over on-set photos, trade not-very-true-at-all rumors and lie awake at night imagining best - and worst - case scenarios.

So it goes with the upcoming adaptation of Suzanne Collins' "Hunger Games," which recently wrapped principal photography with Jennifer Lawrence ("X-Men: First Class") in the lead role. Hopeful fans and skeptics alike are all dying to see a trailer, which should be arriving soon. Meanwhile, "Hunger" hunk Liam Hemsworth (brother of "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth) has added some youthful vigor to the upcoming muy-macho fest "The Expendables 2."

1. "Hunger Games" (Last week: No. 5)
I've been out in the woods for days! Can't one of my sponsors drop a parachute with a rough-cut of the trailer or an EPK or something?

What's next for "The Hunger Games"?

Last week, Lionsgate announced filming was complete for "The Hunger Games". It was the latest of the early markers for fans of the book series that is being made into movies, with the first film hitting theaters exactly six months from Friday: March 23, 2012.

Since casting calls in April and filming in Shelby in late May and early June, the movie has moved to other filming locations in North Carolina and seen a flurry of interest rarely found for a movie so far from release.Roughly half a year out from the movie's opening, here's a look back at what we’ve been shown so far and some guesses on what's next:

"Hunger Games" by way of EW

The film has chosen to roll out the first images of each of its three main characters on a pair of Entertainment Weekly covers this summer. First, in May, we got our initial look at Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence as main character Katniss. Then, in the Aug. 5 issue, EW had the first image of fellow main characters Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) on its cover.

At least one, probably two, promotional images, appear to be from the Shelby filming location.

Panem October är en fangjord hemsida om "The Hunger Games" och Panem. Det har länge spekulerats kring vad hemsidan innebär och vad som egentligen kommer att hända i oktober. Men nu har "Rowan the Gamemaker" brytit tystnaden och pratar med Movies om vad som egentligen pågår.

Dessutom, bli vän med Peeta [länk] och Katniss [länk]!


"The Hunger Games" countdown: Panem October is coming!

You asked for more and you're getting it. Panem October is back and gearing up for the official launch. With the October 1st start date fast approaching, the elusive Head Gamemaker, Rowan, agreed to take part in an interview. This is absolutely unprecedented because as cryptic as he is, we got into the details of the conception of Panem October, the situation with Lionsgate, what's to come and so much more. Brace yourselves because Panem October is finally coming and there's a little something you'll need to do to ensure you're prepared.

What made you decide to start Panem October? Was there something specific that triggered the idea?
Alternate-reality games have always been an interest to me and the minute I read "The Hunger Games" trilogy, I knew I had to turn the passion into something amazing for the fans.

How'd you handle it from there? Do you have experience working on these types of projects?
I helped start a small-scale ARG for a different fandom (of which I won't mention for fear of revealing my identity). Getting to know how fans react to various types of material and ways of releasing it has given me an amazing inside look at how viral campaigns truly reach fans and what gets them the most excited.

Were there any concerns at the start in terms of Lionsgate stepping in?
I actually approached Lionsgate's marketing team before our original website went live back in April, and pitched to them the idea and requested that we work together to create something incredible for the fans. Days turned into weeks and I guess it just wasn't in the cards for Lionsgate to be involved. We launched the website shortly after realizing there would be no working relationship and decided to be 100% powered by fan volunteers.

Update: Lionsgate har bekräftat för TheHobOrg och HungerGamesDWTC att reshootsen endast är rykten.

Den huvudsakliga inspelningen av "The Hunger Games" är avslutad [länk] men Russ Bowen - som gett information om inspelningen sedan den startade - har twittrat om reshoots.

Från och med nu fram till den 27 september kommer de att filma i DuPont State Forest, vilket betyder arenascener. Sedan kommer de att ta sig vidare till Charlotte där alla Capitol-scener spelas in.

RussBowenNews13 på twitter:

"Hunger Games" back at Dupont State Forest now through September 27th. "Hunger Games" reshoots in Charlotte will occur in October.


Update: Russ twittrade lite senare att informationen om reshoots i Charlotte stämmer, men att den kan vara felaktig angående DuPont. Han skulle återkomma med mer information inom kort.

RussBowenNews13 på twitter:

Huge apologies. "Hunger Games" info in Charlotte is correct. But DuPont may be wrong. It may be new Isabelle Furhman movie. Give me a few hours to find out. Again sorry for confusion.

To the person posting them: though I know everyone is really curious about the movie, this is really not ok. These are private and I'm asking you, please stop. If I went onto your Facebook and took pictures and posted them online, you wouldn't like it either. I really don't want to be mean, and I really appreciate your support for us, but posting our private photos online is not right. So, please, once again, I am asking you, stop posting these photos. Thank you for being a fan, but please respect our privacy. Lots of love, Jackie.

Vanessa Hudgens har pratat med både People och NY Post om att hon är singel för tillfället, och förnekar alltså ryktena om att hon och Josh är tillsammans. Josh pratade ju även han med Seventeen nyligen [länk] där även han sa att de bara är vänner.

Vanessa Hudgens: People

Hudgens attended to some other business while in the Big Apple as well - refuting the rumors that she's cozying up to "Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson.

"I'm single!" she told People emphatically at the Popchips Playland event for "Fashion's Night Out" Thursday.


High school heartache?

Vanessa Hudgens was quick to pour cold water on talk of romance between her and her "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island", co-star Josh Hutcherson.

"He's my friend. He's just my friend... I have a lot of friends. You have friends. It doesn't mean you are dating them." she told us at the Popchips Playland in the Meatpacking District. That may come as bad news to Hutcherson, who recently told a magazine that he 'adored' The High School Musical Star and that they "loved being together".

Los Angeles Times har en lång och intressant artikel om vad "The Hunger Games" kan komma att betyda för Lionsgate, på samma sätt som "Twilight" betytt otroligt mycket för Summit Entertainment.

För den första filmen i serien spenderade Lionsdate över 80 miljoner dollar [ca 500 miljoner svenska kronor], vilket ger den mest påkostade filmen någonsin för filmbolaget. Men analytikern James Marsh har förutstått att de fyra planerade filmerna kommer att dra in mer än 475 miljoner dollar [över 3 miljarder svenska kronor].


"Hunger Games" could be a game changer for Lionsgate

The franchise could transform the studio, much as "Twilight" did rival Summit Entertainment, by providing reliable income for years from box-office, DVD and digital sales as well as licensing and merchandise.

In "The Hunger Games," 24 teenagers fight to the death in a tournament whose slogan is "May the odds be ever in your favor."

Executives at Lions Gate Entertainment are hoping those words will ring true for them as they gamble on the most anticipated literary adaptation to hit Hollywood since "Twilight" and "Harry Potter." The first of four planned "Hunger Games" films, based on Suzanne Collins' bestselling trilogy, wrapped production in North Carolina on Saturday and will hit theaters March 23.

A successful "Hunger Games" franchise could transform the studio, much as "Twilight" did rival Summit Entertainment, by providing reliable income for years from box-office, DVD and digital sales as well as television licensing and merchandise.

But launching such a movie series won't come cheap. With a budget of nearly $100 million, the first film alone is the costliest production ever for Santa Monica-based Lions Gate, which is best known for low-budget genre fare such as "Saw" and Tyler Perry's "Madea" films along with the occasional prestige movie like "Precious." The studio's movie business is in need of a jump-start, having weathered a number of flops since last year.

With so much at stake, "Hunger Games" will likely be the hottest topic of conversation as investors gather for Lionsgate's annual meeting Tuesday in Toronto.

"There are three things on Lionsgate investors' minds for the next year: 'Hunger Games', 'Hunger Games' and 'Hunger Games'." said analyst James Marsh of Piper Jaffray, who predicted the four movies would generate more than $475 million in profits over six years.

Vanessa Hudgens pratar kort om Josh i en ny intervju med E! Online.

Vanessa Hudgens: E! Online

Vanessa also took the chance to talk up her "Journey 2: Mysterious Island" costar Josh Hutcherson.

"He's a sweetheart! I love him." she told me. "He's one of my really great friends. He matches my craziness, for sure."

Sounds like these two are more like partners in crime than dating romantically, but Josh himself played coy during a recent Seventeen interview [länk], saying: "Oh, boy. I don't know if 'dating' is the right word. She's awesome. We love being together."

Russ Bowen har nu rapporterat via sin twitter att inspelningen av "The Hunger Games" är färdig i North Carolina förutom några klipp på när Katniss [Jennifer Lawrence] springer.

Update: Lionsgate har bekräftat att inspelningen avslutades den 10 september.

Russ delar också med sig av lite annan intressant information. Till exempel att elden i teaser trailern [länk] är äkta och att de faktiskt inte använt sig av mycket datagjorda specialeffekter alls. Han skriver också att det kommer att vara en del ändringar i filmversionen, men det visste vi ju redan.


RussBowenNews13 på twitter:

▪ "Hunger Games" wraps in NC. But not before airials shot back at Dupont State Forest of Katniss running.

▪ I saw pics of training center today. Better than expected.

▪ Expect a few changes in film version. You will be surprised but will likely like them. I won't give spoilers though.

▪ Gale and Katniss hunting area shot outside Shelby.

▪ The best news of all very little attitude on the set. The ones who had it might suprise you. And no it's not the big names.

▪ Suprising little CG/green screen used. The fire you see in the teaser trailer is the real deal. No fake CG. They've done everything possible to make "Hunger Games" realistic/believable.

I MovieWeb's intervju med skådespelaren Denzel Whitaker - som man kan se i nya "Abduction" - under DVD-releasen av "X-men: First Class" berättar han att han har blivit intresserad av att regissera, men att han själv inte skulle vilja medverka som skådespelare i sin första film. Istället skulle han vilja jobba med Josh Hutcherson.


Denzel Whitaker talks "Abduction" & directing

When I asked what was next for him, the 21-year-old actor revealed that he has taken an interest in directing.

"I'm actually doing some directing right now. Earlier this year I took off to do some music videos and I'm putting together some shorts with a company I just formed called Mononoke Entertainment. Also, I'm going to direct my first feature, hopefully by the end of next year. We're going through the second revisions of the script right now. I didn't co-write it, but I am heavily involved. I am very close with the writer, so, every step of the way, I'm there. It's called 'Killing Familiar'. It's about these three teenagers who accidentally manslaughter somebody. We sort of see the trials and tribulations of how it breaks down their relationships."

Despite his heavy involvement in this directorial endeavor, Denzel Whitaker said he doesn't want to act in his directorial debut, although he does have an actor in mind to star in "Killing Familiar".

"I don't want to act in it, for my first project out. I'd rather craft it the best I can and leave the acting to the side. But, I'm interested in Josh Hutcherson. We're going to reach out to him in a few months. The funny thing is, he likes NASCAR and that's what our character likes, so he might see himself in the character."

Om vad han Josh skulle gjort om han inte vore skådespelare

It's hard to imagine myself doing anything else because I've done this for so long and I love it so much. I probably would've tried to become a professional athlete of some sort because I love to play sports so much.

Vad Josh söker i en karaktär

I look for a character who has an interesting story to tell and an interesting character arc that gives me something to sink my teeth in and go through a change throughout the story.

Nyhetsankaret Russ Bowen skriver på sin twitter att han hört att "The Hunger Games"-inspelningen kommer att pågå i Charlotte, North Carolina genom hela september.

RussBowenNews13 på twitter:

▪ For those who have asked, "Hunger Games" has not finished shooting in Charlotte. However, many actors have finished and have gone home.

▪ I'm being told "Hunger Games" will be working in Charlotte throughout September.


Tidigare information [länk] säger dock emot detta och påstår att inspelningen bör avslutas väldigt snart. Men det kan behöva göras omtagningar som inte var planerade när den tidigare informationen kom ut. Det återstår ännu att se hur det faktiskt blir.

Den 28 augusti visades "Detention" på UK Frightfest, och några kritiker som sett filmen har nu recenserat den för att säga vad de tyckte. Och alla tre källorna ger riktigt bra betyg!


Jordan's FrightFest 2011 top 5: "Detention" review

Number 3:
To say I enjoyed "Detention" would be an understatement; the film was the surprise of the festival for me. Lagging after 3 days watching movies I was starting to slouch back in my seat about to let tiredness take over but then an opening scene with forth wall breaking, pop culture references, on screen flying graphics and some pretty nice gore woke me the hell back up.

There is a unique energy to this film, like an ADHD child bored in class who can never let his mind rest. The camera's always moving someone's always talking, it's constant and it's in your face. The script is quick, witty, smart and knows its audience so well that it's a tad scary. Normally I would want a movie such as this to take a breather or at least let your eyes have a break for a few minutes but with this film that feeling never came, it was 0-100mph from the start and stayed there for the entire runtime. Joseph Kahn and Mark Palermo have obviously made a film full of passion and wrote a script that would showcase the camerawork Kahn has perfected over the years as a music video and commercial director. Unlike other music video directors who have struggled with the style changes to feature films, it's noticeable that Kahn in his comfort zone with this hyper slick style. It feels like the work of a very confident director.

[...]

The inclusion of Hutcherson on the other hand is excellent for two reasons, one he's great in the movie, two he's blowing up right now and becoming the hot new actor of the day which means that this film will get to be seen by a lot more people.

FrightFest 2011: "Detention" review

"Detention" begins at it means to go on with a highly stylised, pop culture referencing and almost impossibly kinetic opening that introduces us to the town of Grizzly Lake, its high school and the students that go there. The effect of this opening is that your mind races to match the speed of the delivery and digest everything as it flies past. What is perhaps most satisfying about the way Kahn and Palermo deliver information in "Detention" though is that it all makes sense, surprisingly so.

[...]

A time travelling bear, a serial killer slasher, a boy who is part fly and the end of the world all come into play in what is a ludicrously dense script filled with more complexity than the shallow surface of referential fun may suggest. This is the film's greatest strength; the speed of delivery, mixed with banal reference points and an absurdist attitude to plotting all provide a delivery method for what is an oddly sweet story about a teenager navigating the horribly trite modern world we live in. The characters are clearly confused, they struggle with their identity and they are incessantly obsessed with how they appear to others. "Detention" is a film that seems to capture pretty accurately the way a lot of teenagers are almost certainly feeling, packaging it in a way that is relevant to teenagers now.

FrightFest day 4: "Detention" review

The plot is so expansive and bizarre it would take close to the film's runtime to accurately unpick it all, but essentially follows a group of weird teens at Grizzly Lake High School (none of whom accurately fit common archetypes) including a 90's obsessed cheerleader, a misanthropic vegetarian, an aggressive Canadian and 'the token black guy' who is, in his own words "just boring".

[...]

The core cast is spectacular and probably shaved years off their lives with the level of enthusiasm and excitement they uniformly pour into their roles. Not a poor player among them (even Dane Cook as the principal is on top-form), it is exhausting to watch. From the moment we are introduced to the school bitch (the text on screen that she draws our attention to tells us she is) we are forced to hit the ground running. Given a quick schooling in how to be cool (and a deft rundown of why we are so not) she is quickly dispatched by the film's killer and there is not a single moment of pause from then until the film's end. There may never have been a mainstream film with so fast a pace and may be difficult for some viewers to keep up. This will inevitably alienate some audiences, but the film is an experience and a challenge that is worth the effort.

Fanet Robbie har delat med sig av sin upplevelse som statist på "The Hunger Games"-inspelningen på sin Tumblr [länk]. Han avslöjar inte mycket detaljer, men förklarar bland annat hur perfekta Josh, Jennifer Lawrence [Katniss] och Woody Harrelson [Haymitch] är i sina roller.

Here is my full experience from "The Hunger Games" set!

Note: I will not be giving specific details about the set or costumes. Nothing spoilery for fear that I could probably get shot by someone from Lionsgate. I feel like they're watching every extras moves.

Okay I got to be in a few different scenes. First day was incredible. I got to meet with Jennifer for a good 10 minutes and then that was basically the only time she ever got a break. Girl is working her ass off on this film. She is incredibly nice. Very hyper personality though, hahaha. It was so incredible to watch her go from being this hyper child and then when Gary would call action she just transformed into Katniss 110%. A couple of times I almost missed what I was supposed to do because I was just so transfixed into watching her play Katniss. The doubters and the naysayers about her casting will all be completely quiet by the time this film comes out. She is that incredible and that amazing. She is going to have a very beautiful career. Our fandom is so lucky to have her as our lead.

Okay about Josh. Absolutely hilarious. I met him the day before I got casted as an extra and he was so awesome. But seeing him work and just hearing him talk as Peeta. You guys, that kid is Peeta. Like you have no idea. Him and Jennifer are incredible together. The two of them just completely bring these characters to life. Josh is also incredible at acting. These kids were all just amazing to watch. You'd see him and Jen just goofing off before they call action and then action is called and they just transform into these incredible actors. I cannot stress enough at how amazingly lucky we are to have such amazing actors working on this film! The acting department on this film is definitely covered.

Mike Hess från Celebuzz har gjort ett gästinhopp för CNN och tipsar Josh och Liam [Hemsworth] om vad de ska göra för att klara av att hantera den kommande berömmelsen.


"Hunger Games" cast: Cheat sheet for stardom

1. Choose wisely: This should apply to every aspect of your life, from who you surround yourself with and who you date, to what movies you are thinking of tackling. All of the minutiae of your life is now in full view, and a certain portion of the media loves nothing more than to exploit every misstep. Take a look to your left or right the next time you're in a business meeting or out with friends and ask yourself: "Is this person here for me, or for their own benefit?"

2. Stay (somewhat) private: We've already discussed the nosy media, but now with Twitter and other social media, celebrities can live out every action, thought and event in real time for all of the world to see. Sure, it's a great promotional vehicle, but it's one more trap that is 100% avoidable. Don't want your Twitter account hacked where someone posts nasty things in your name? Well, don't have a Twitter account. If you keep access to yourself somewhat limited, when you do actually have something to say, it makes it that much more powerful. Otherwise, people will get bored with hearing you tell them what you ate for lunch that day and miss the good stuff when you've got it. Plus, it adds a bit of mystery and allure to you.

3. Don't live in Los Angeles: Yes, it's where most movies are made and where all of your agents and associates are. Yes, it's got great weather, killer clubs/restaurants and all that. It also has a cannibalistic, frenzied media who pay their rent by looking to capture your lowest moments. Naturally, not having "low moments" is the more prudent option here, but keeping an apartment in L.A. for work trips and residing elsewhere ('Captain America' himself Chris Evans recently told us he couldn't take L.A. and moved back to his hometown of Boston) will surely minimize the paparazzi hassle.

Josh är med i oktobernumret av Seventeen, "Hot Guys Special". De har en ny intervju med honom där han bland annat berättar att han är väldigt öppen inför människor (och speciellt tjejer!) och att hans typ av tjej är någon man kan ha djupa diskussioner med. Läs mer under bilden.

Liam Hemsworth har också ett uppslag i tidningen [länk].

Seventeen Magazine: Hot Guys Special

This Kentucky boy is unfailingly polite, tight with his family, and a complete sucker for romance. Are you in love yet?

We want to ask you the same thing we asked Liam: If you guys were fighting over a girl, who would win?
Let's be honest, his Australian accent kills it. It's an unfair advantage! I'd give the lady points straight to Liam. Liam is epic, man.

[Seventeen asked Liam, "In 'The Hunger Games', your character and Josh Hutcherson's character fight for the same girl. Who would win in real life?!" Liam said, 'Josh is a pretty charismatic dude, so he'd probably win. I'm not that good at talking to girls! Honestly, he's persuasive. I listen to him talk a lot, and he's smart, he's funny... He could convince me to do anything!']

In Hunger Games, your character is totally in love with Katniss, even when she's cold to him. Can you relate?
I feel like every relationship I get into ends up being like that! I'm someone who can fall in love at the drop of the hat. My parents raised me to be very accepting of other people, so because of that, I feel like I might be overly accepting of girls. If a girl shows any interest, I’m like, "Yes! I love you, you’re amazing!"

Well what about your Journey 2 costar, Vanessa Hudgens? You're dating, right?
Oh, boy. I don't kow if "dating" is the right word. She's awesome. We love being together. When I first met her, we just really hit it off. We could be goofy and silly and not worry about anything except having fun. I adore her.

Do you have a "type"?
I like girls I can have deep conversations with. The meaning of life and existence – you can go on forever about that stuff. When girls play the ditzy-dumb thing, I’m like, "Oh, God, please stop."

"The perfect date is going to the beach, sitting under the stars, and listening to music. The cliches are cheesy, but I love them!"

Steven Soderbergh som var regissör för 2nd unit under inspelningen av "The Hunger Games" några dagar har pratat med MovieFone om vad han gjorde där och varför.


Why was Steven Soderbergh on the set of "The Hunger Games"? Steven Soderbergh tells us the whole story

I show up in North Carolina, a crewmember Tweets, "Steven Soderbergh's here". And immediately the f*cking firestorm starts. "Why is he here? What's going on? Is the movie in trouble? Is he directing footage from the second one?" All of this crazy-ass speculation. People just spinning off.

The story is really simple. Back in April, [director] Gary [Ross] - who is a close friend of mine I've exchanged creative favors with non-stop over the last 15 years - when he got the boards for the shoot in April called me and said, "Hey, first week of August, I got these two days of second unit. Is there any way you can come down and help me out? Because I'd rather have you do it than hire somebody who I don't know." I said, "Actually, that works out." We'll just be finishing "Contagion" and prepping "Magic Mike" and, yeah, it could be fun.

Cut to two months later, and I show up to do this thing. Of course the whole design of it and what's fun about it, for me, is my job is to come in and duplicate exactly what Gary and Tom Stern, the [cinematographer], are doing. To mimic as closely as I can to their aesthetic. And that's what I attempted to do. But if I've done my job properly, I hope I did, by design, you won't be able to tell what I did. Because it's supposed to cut seamlessly into what they're doing. That's the whole point. That's why he asked me to come down, because he knew that I would be rigorous about matching what they were doing.

Hickory Daily Record har pratat med William Casey som är publicist för produktionen. De skriver att inspelningen av "The Hunger Games" kommer att avslutas nu i början av september och att "Catching Fire" inte har några bestäma filmningsplatser ännu.


"The Hunger Games" - More filming could come to Hildebran?

Filming for "The Hunger Games", which is directed by Gary Ross, is wrapping up, said William Casey, unit publicist for the production, and will finish early this month. The production was in Concord on Wednesday, he said. The movie is expected to be released in March but Casey said no information on where Lionsgate will hold the movie's premiere screening has been released.

As for any additional movies, Casey said only one additional movie in the series has been confirmed so far. He said the company confirmed they have a deal that encompasses four movies but that doesn't mean that four will be made. The only confirmed production beyond "The Hunger Games" is "Catching Fire", Casey said. The release date for "Catching Fire" is Nov. 22, 2013.

No filming locations or start dates for "Catching Fire" have been determined yet, Casey said. If any other films in the trilogy will be shot in North Carolina, no one is saying. Casey did, however, say that part of the second book takes place in a more tropical setting.

MTV Hollywoodcrush har listat fem scener som de skulle älska att se i den officiella trailern för "The Hunger Games". En av punkterna är "Any scene with Peeta" och man kan ju inte annat än att hålla med. Läs listan under bilderna.


"Hunger Games" trailer: 5 must-see scenes

Now that we've had a few days to chew on "The Hunger Games" sneak peek debuted during the MTV Video Music Awards, we're ready to turn our attention to what's next on the menu. Namely, a full-length "Hunger Games" trailer!

Odds are many of you have already formulated trailer wish lists the size of Panem, detailing every little odd and end you'd die to see in the next piece of promotion for the dystopian drama. And you better believe Hollywood Crush has done the same! Feast on our five must-see scenes after the jump!

1. The Reaping
Sure, it's not the most exciting or sexiest moment of Suzanne Collins' trilogy (and we've already gotten a small taste thanks to that production still featuring Liam Hemsworth), but there's no denying this pivotal moment sets the stage for everything that follows. Context. Context. Context.

2. Any scene with Peeta
Jennifer Lawrence was the star of the sneak peek - as well she should have been - and Liam had a cameo in the form of a go-get-em voiceover, but we have yet to see or hear from the baker's son played by Josh Hutcherson. Perhaps we could catch a glimpse of him covered in flour, working in his father's shop. Or being nursed back to health by Katniss in the arena. Or even, perhaps, palming a few poisonous berries...

3. Effie and Haymitch on the train to the Capitol
In one fell swoop, this scene would accomplish three things: We'd get our first official look at Elizabeth Banks flaunting mentor Effie's pink wig; we'd witness her chemistry with Woody Harrelson's belligerent Haymitch AND peek Panem's glistening ruling city.
