To celebrate over 12 million Facebook fans, the official page shared this new and exclusive Catching Fire trailer! It's chill worthy, and only made more so with Coldplay's (Grammy nominated) 'Atlas' playing in the background.
Last week, ABC News announced the list of Barbara Walters' "Most Facinating People of the Year" for 2013, and Jennifer Lawrence is on the list!
From ABC News:
The special, in its 21st year, includes Hollywood darling Jennifer Lawrence, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, ABC News’ very own “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts, Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, together known as KimYe, the breakout stars from the hit reality TV show “Duck Dynasty,” and arguably the most famous infant in the world — Duchess Kate and Prince William’s baby George, the heir to the British throne.
The No. 1 most fascinating person of 2013 will be announced on the program. The show will also reflect on moments from the past 20 years of Walters’ “Most Fascinating People of the Year” specials, which started in 1993.
This will be the last “Most Fascinating” special for Walters, who announced last May that she would retire from TV journalism next year.
This special will air on Wednesday, December 18th, at 9:30PM EST/PST.
After spending nearly three weeks at #1, Catching Fire has taken second place to Disney's Frozen. Earning 27 million at the box office in its third weekend, CF narrowly lost to Frozen's 31.6 million.
According to Bloomberg:
“‘The Hunger Games’ has held up extremely well and has probably expanded the fan base,” of the franchise, said Phil Contrino, chief analyst for researcher BoxOffice.com. “It’s a big step forward for Lions Gate.”photo credit [x]
In the latest film, Jennifer Lawrence returns as the heroine Katniss Everdeen and inadvertently becomes part of a rebellion as she makes a victory tour of the fictional world Panem. Everdeen and her co-winner, Peeta Mellark, are forced to battle in another round of games.
Worldwide, “Catching Fire” has collected $673.4 million in ticket sales, according to Box Office Mojo.

Atomic Productions has released this hilarious parody of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire! You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen “The Lost Tribute” you know, the one guy from District 13 that never made it to the games?
Woodly Harrelson [The Hunger Games, Catching Fire] recently sat down with Forbes Magazine to talk about his upcoming movie Out of the Furnace, and mentioned his work in The Hunger Games movies.
Having The Hunger Games as this ongoing series of films in your career, what sort of itch does Out of the Furnace scratch in comparison to that?
I mean, I don’t really compare them. I mean, it’s just – I turned Hunger Gamesdown, twice! I’m the only one that’s such a fool to turn that thing down, and it’s been the greatest single thing that I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of, not just for the huge success of it, but for those people who are involved in it. I mean, I love those guys, man. I mean, it is like a family. It is so tight, so fun, we all love hanging out with each other outside the set, and we’re just laughing all day long on the set. I can’t imagine anything more fun. And because of it I’ve got to meet a lot of people I never would have, like tweens, coming up and wanting an autograph. I’m like, they never would have come up to me! They never would have seen anything I’d done. So it was really – that’s a cool thing as well. But it’s not like I think, I’m not one of those guys who say, “I do these… so that I can do the smaller movies.” I don’t do anything like that. I just take things as they come, and the fact that they keep coming is shocking, but I’m certainly happy to be a part of it.
I love that Woody said working on THG movies has “been the greatest single thing…” that he’s been part of! You can read more of Woody’s interview with Forbes HERE!
