'I'm Easily Injured!'
This weekend everyone and their mama has been talking about pretty much one thing: the glory that is The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Trent posted his review yesterday, and many of us agreed that this movie is just the friggen BEST. Josh Hutcherson AKA Peeta (who just did a pretty dope photo shoot with Tyler Shields) hosted last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, and of course there were plenty of Hunger Games-related jokes in his opening monologue. Peep the video above to see Hutcherson‘s opening and click inside for more sketches from last night!
"Everyone wears a mask"
In December of 2012 I blogged about the upcoming debut of a new Fox TV series titled The Following, which I fell in love with after watching the first 4 episodes. As the debut season unfolded, I was gripped by the drama that took place and I came to expect the surprise twist that would inevitably come at the end of each episode. Altho there were some problems with the show (it’s rare for a new show to be perfect right off the bat), I became a big fan of the show. The season 1 finale episode SEEMED to bring the story to a conclusion but, naturally, we were given some insight as to what we might expect in season 2. The Following will return on Fox on January 19th with its season 2 premiere episode followed by the show’s second episode the following night on January 20. I can’t wait to see where the story will take us in season 2 (I’m curious to see how seemingly “dead” characters will appear in the new season). Click thru the gallery presented here to check out promo photos of the season 2 characters and then click below to see a just-released promo video for The Following. More »

"If you piss me off I'm really competitive"
Entertainment Tonight managed to get an on-camera sit down interview with our dear Britney Spears which will air on the show next week (possibly on multiple episodes). ET released a teaser commercial for the interview and as you can see in the embed above, Britney talks love and life … and answers some pretty interesting questions. The promo claims that Britney is sitting down with “only one show” before her new album Britney Jean is released in a couple of weeks so … this is it, y’all. Check out the commercial and keep your peepers peeped for the full interview to air on ET next week.
"It's really liberating to say 'No' to shit you hate"
Lena Dunham and her madcap of hipster co-stars is coming BACK with a third season of their hit HBO series Girls and today we get to check out the just-released first trailer for the new season. Personally, I find the show very hit or miss … there are things about Girls that I like and there are things about Girls that I hate with a fiery passion. But, any show that can elicit that kind of reaction is probably worth paying attention to, at the very least. Girls season 2 started to irritate me but I watched to the end. I’m invested. This first look at season 3 looks good enough that I will tune in to watch the new season when it debuts in January. The show will return with 2 back-to-back episodes on Sunday January 12. Any Girls fans out there? Are you excited for the show’s return?

Long Time Coming
Earlier this month we got to see a sneak peek of Lana Del Rey‘s anticipated (and delayed) short film titled Tropico and today, at last, we get to see an official trailer for the film. Even more exciting, we learn that LDR will release Tropico online on December 5. There has been a lot of talk about this film for much of the year. While fans have been anxiously awaiting new music from Lana, she has been promising the release of this film … and at long last, it’s almost here. Check out the trailer embedded above to get a better feel for what we can expect when Tropico drops in a couple of weeks. I hope this film is worth the wait cuz I’m SO ready for new LDRness.

No, Seriously ... this trailer is NSFW
Back in August of 2012, we first heard that pre-production and early casting talk was underway for director Lars von Triers‘s new film Nymphomaniac when Shia LaBeouf‘s name was attached to the project. This past July, we got to see a NSFW still from the movie that features Shia and it became clear that the movie was going to be, well, full of nekkidness. Today we get to see the first official trailer for Nymphomaniac and as I’m sure you can guess, the NSFW video features a lot of nudity which isn’t really appropriate watching in a lot of settings … but hey, it’s Friday, maybe we can use a bit of spice. Click the embed above to have a look at this trailer according to your best judgement. I’m not sure that the quick scenes presented in this trailer give a great feel for the plot of the film but you deffo get a feel for the eroticness in store when Nymphomaniac hits theaters.

The TV Guide
Last night I made my way to the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, CA for a special one night only screening of the BRILLIANT 1964 film Mary Poppins. As I mentioned yesterday, the El Capitan hosts a Throwback Thursdays screening about once a month were fans vote for the classic Disney film they’d like to see in the theater. This month, Mary Poppins was the winner and I made sure to attend. Unfortunately, Ollie couldn’t make the movie due to a scheduling conflict but I did get to hang out with my FB friend Stacy at the screening. The house was PACKED with eager and happy fans. It really was a great way to see a truly beloved classic Disney film. More »

She Is SO Over These Photographers
Jennifer Lawrence has been hella busy promoting her new movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (which, BTW, I saw last night and yes… it is friggen EVERYTHING), as we recently saw in a fabulous red carpet round-up. In fact, all of the work may be getting to her because Wednesday night at the New York premiere she totally lost her shizz on the red carpet. Now to be fair, I think she’s partly kidding in this video, but you can also tell the photographers had gotten on her last nerve, LOL. Keep calm, J-Law! Peep the video for more!
