Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth were in attendance at the San Diego Comic-Con panel discussion for the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 … which you can watch in full in the embedded video above. Clocking in at just over 46 minutes, this panel discussion for Mockingjay – Part 2 is full of fun movie information but, mostly, really great footage of J. Law, Josh and Liam being their usual adorable selves. If you missed out on attending this panel discussion yesterday, here is your chance to see it in full. Enjoy.
Stand and Deliver
Yesterday we got to see a really great new teaser video for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 — that epic one with Katniss Everdeen standing atop a statue of the 3 finger salute, with her cape waving majestically in the wind. Today we get to see another new teaser video, this one being a message from the resistance fighters of District 13. Doing her best Janet Jackson / Rhythm Nation impression, Katniss and a horde of soldiers stand united in the fight against President Snow in the Capital city of Panem. I am living for these promo videos! Gawd, give me MOAR!
Soooooo … with the forthcoming mega superhero sequel movie Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice due out next year and about 9 other films to follow from DC Comics/Warner Bros., you’d think that the studio would be focused on the movies they’ve already announced instead of announcing production of even MORE movies … and you’d be wrong. Today we learn that DC/WB is reportedly set to announce officially that Ben Affleck will star in and direct the next stand-alone Batman movie, with the help of DC Comics‘ chief creative officer Geoff Johns. So in addition to two Justice League movies, Suicide Squad, the first Wonder Woman movie, the first Aquaman movie, ANOTHER Green Lantern movie we will also get another stand-alone Batman movie … starring Batffleck himself … which really seems like a lot.

United She Stands
Yesterday we got to see a new promo poster for the forthcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, the final movie in the Hunger Games film franchise. Today we get to see a new international teaser video that plays on the epic regalness of the poster that we saw yesterday. As you can see in the embed above, Katniss (played by Jennifer Lawrence) stands atop a statue of the 3-finger salute of the resistance, in an effort to get the people of Panem to stand United with her in the battle against President Snow. The final film will be where all resolution takes place … but who will remain victorious? This teaser video (and the books, published years ago) suggest that Katniss and the resistance fighters will be the last ones standing. Check out this teaser and get ready … an onslaught of promo stuff is headed our way as we countdown to the release of Mockingjay – Part 2 in theaters on November 20.
Earlier this week we got to see a batch of really great character posters for the forthcoming sequel movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, the finale movie in the film franchise. Today we get to see one more, just-released poster that features one character and one character alone — protagonist Katniss Everdeen. As you can see below, Katniss is all decked out in a blood red costume sitting on the bone white chair usually occupied by President Snow. It would appear that the message here is very clear … when the dust of war settles, it will be Katniss Everdeen sitting pretty at the top of the heap. More »
Coming October 16
Back in May of 2013, we first learned that plans were in the works to adapt R.L. Stine‘s classic book series Goosebumps into a live-action feature film. Today we get to feast our eyes on the first trailer and movie poster for Goosebumps, the movie. As you can see above, many of the classic characters from the Goosebumps books will come to life in this new movie … including The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena, The Werewolf of Fever Swamp, the lawn gnomes from Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes, Slappy from Night of the Living Dummy and MORE! Honestly, I completely discounted the notion of adapting these books into a feature film but now that I see the trailer, I can honestly say that I’m not mad at it. Let’s say I’m now cautiously optimistic that this movie might be fun after all. Watch the trailer above and then click below to see the movie poster for Goosebumps … and if you like what you see, save the date — Goosebumps will open in theaters on October 16. More »

Plus, see Melissa McCarthy in her 'Ghostbusters' uniform
Late last month, director Paul Feig gave us our first look at the Ghostbusters uniforms that will be worn by the all-female cast of the forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot film. Today, we see that Feig gives us our first look at the souped up car that the Ghostbusters will be driving in the movie. As you can see below, the new ECTO-1 car looks very similar to the original version of the car featured in the original Ghostbusters movie … but, I’m guessing, this new version has a few more options … like GPS navigation, Bluetooth audio, mobile wifi … you know, the usual. Additionally, actress Melissa McCarthy was spotted on the set of Ghostbusters yesterday rockin’ her new Ghostbusters uniform. See the ECTO-1 and Melissa all Ghostbustersed out below. More »
'Pee-Wee's Big Holiday' will be released next year
Back in February, we learned that Pee-Wee Herman has teamed up with Judd Apatow for his upcoming Netflix movie, Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday. In March, we got our first look at the first photo from the set of the film. In May, we learned that Magic Mike XXL star Joe Manganiello has been added to the Holiday cast … and today we learn that the movie now has a release date. Well, actually, a release month. Pee-Wee posted an update about Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday on his official site, including the news that the movie will be released on Netflix next year. Click below to learn the deets. More »
War is Here
Back in March we got our first look at the first teaser poster and video for the forthcoming conclusion to the Hunger Games film franchise, Mockingjay – Part 2, due out in November. In June, we got to see a second poster and the film’s first video trailer. Today, a batch of character posters for Mockingjay – Part 2 have been unleashed all over social media by the film’s studio. As you can see in the gallery presented here, Katniss Everdeen and her allies (Gale, Prim, Finnick, etc.) are war painted up and ready for battle, reminding us that The Revolution is About All of Us. These striking posters are a great reminder that the finale movie, which opens on November 20, will be a serious end to the Hunger Games saga. War has come to Panem.
The SDCC Bonus Issue
We learned last week that the Holy Trinity of Superheroes — Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman as they will appear in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice — are featured on the cover of the annual Comic-Con double preview issue. Today we learn that the bonus issue of EW‘s Comic Con issue features the Marvel Comics superhero Deadpool as he will appear in his own film next year.
