'Mockingjay' to be split into two movies, release dates announced
Lionsgate has just let loose a veritable Cornucopia of release details. Only shortly after confirming the addition of Philip Seymour Hoffman to the cast of Catching Fire, the studio has announced that they plan to split Mockingjay—the final novel in Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games trilogy—into two separate films: the ingeniously titled The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2. The plan is to make this a yearly event through 2015, with Catching Fire hitting theaters on November 22, 2013, Mockingjay, Part 1 on November 21, 2014, and Mockingjay, Part 2 on Nov. 20, 2015. That way, each Thanksgiving, Americans can give thanks that they’re not being forced to fight to the death as a spectator sport, even if holidays with the family can make it feel that way.
This is just the latest example of Hollywood taking the ax to a golden goose in an effort to double their success rates and extend the film series. And based on the take of other meiotic franchises like Harry Potter and Twilight, it’s highly possible that splitting Mockingjay will result in two golden geese. At least, that’s what Lionsgate is hoping.
I don't think Mockingjay deserved to be split into two movies. If they really need to milk the cow, I'd rather that they split Catching Fire instead.
Grant Gustin Confirms He Auditioned for Finnick
Glee’s Grant Gustin, who was featured in the ‘Finding Finnick Odair’ series, has always been very vocal about his desire to play Finnick in Catching Fire. Today, The Insider reports that he has, indeed, auditioned for the part.
Grant’s fans have plenty of projects to look forward to — not only will A Mother’s Nightmare premiere later this year on Lifetime, but the actor reveals he has officially thrown his hat into the ring to play Finnick in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire! “I have auditioned for the role,” he says, confirming lots of fan desire/speculation. “I don’t think [the producers] know what they’re looking for just yet, but yes, I auditioned for the role.”
