Jena Malone to Play Johanna Mason in "Hunger Games" Sequel 


Lionsgate has announced that actress Jena Malone is joining the cast of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" in the role of Johanna Mason. She is a female victor from a past Hunger Games and is one of the youngest and the most psychologically scarred Quarter Quell participants. (Check out my interview with Malone from "Sucker Punch")

Here's the rest of the press release from Lionsgate:

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will be directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.

Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE on November 22, 2013.

Here's My "Dark Knight Rises" Movie Review 
Sorry for the delay -- I was going to put this up Friday, but because of the Colorado tragedy, I chose to hold it until today.



Synopsis (from Yahoo)

It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.

But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

Christian Bale aka Batman/Bruce Wayne of "The Dark Knight" trilogy has issued a statement regarding the Colorado theater shooting last Thursday. (Here's what trilogy director, Christopher Nolan, has to say about the tragedy)
