In the olden days, the only thing people did on the long Thanksgiving weekend was stuff their faces with turkey, watch football, and get into fist fights over $14.95 toaster ovens at Wal-Mart. These days, however, we have expanded our repertoire of holiday activities to include sitting next to family members in a dark room in complete silence.
Obviously, I’m talking about going to the movies. People have finally realized the break they provide from having to make conversation with visiting relatives, so now they’re going to them in droves.
Case in point: Catching Fire. Though the movie came out last weekend, this extended weekend it’s going to earn about $100 million—$14.9 million on Thursday alone—shattering the Thanksgiving weekend box office record of $83.4 million set by Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
And it’s not just Jennifer Lawrence that has people flocking to cineplexes, either. Disney’s animated Frozen opened on Wednesday night, and if not for Catching Fire it would own the Thanksgiving weekend record itself. It raked in $11.1 million on Thursday and is on track for about $90 million from Wednesday-Sunday.
So yeah, two separate movies broke the Thanksgiving box office record this year. I guess you could say we’re gobbling up anything Hollywood serves us. (Rim shot.)
Maybe much of that was in my imagination last night, but when Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks both showed up to the L.A. premiere of Hunger Games: Catching Fire looking so incredibly hot, I just figured they were going to start making out on the red carpet. In my mind, all hot women just start swapping spit with one another because they can’t control their Sapphic passions.
Sadly, it did not come to fruition last night at the film premiere, though individually, Jennifer and Elizabeth both struck quite the visually inspiring poses for the paparazzi. I’ve already committed to seeing this film simply on the basis of Jennifer Lawrence in a tight body suit. That’s worth the three dollars I pay my faithful usher Stewart to let me in the back door of the theater. Enjoy.
Jennifer Lawrence seems to be adding a half inch or so of sideboob with each new Hunger Games inspired gown at various premiere red carpets across European capitals. Her latest skin-show happening outside a theater in Paris, where Jennifer and her fellow cast were set to kick off the second film in the Hunger Game series, Catching Fire.
I’m not sure how good this movie will be, I’m not even sure how much skin Jennifer will show in the film, the first being somewhat underwhelming in that regwrd. But I am quite certain I would follow Jennifer Lawrence to the ends of the earth and back just for the chance to nibble gently on her right ear. So, I’ll be going. And dreaming of her red carpet sideboob and where it might lead. Enjoy.
Jennifer Lawrence isn’t exactly a showoff when it comes to her rather showoff worth buxom body. Which is why it’s always a treat when the hot blonde thespianic delivers a little taste of the top shelf goods as she did last night in Rome at a photocall for Hunger Games: Catching Fire, soon to be out in theaters. Sideboob. Glorious sideboob. A glimpse of the full heaven laying beneath the top of Jennifer Lawrence.
Jennifer has been lauded much of late for her charming and caring personality, all very much deserved. Not to mention her acting talent. Also well deserved. But now we have come to the time in our relationship when it’s time to get to second base, if you will. Jennifer, it’s time to reveal your sweet treats and own us forever. Enjoy
Hangover 3 is going to be the last movie in the franchise, so you can expect it to go with a bang. They’ve already announced that Heather Graham will be returning to join Phil, Alan, and Stu in their final adventure. Now they’re also bringing back the gorgeous Sasha Barrese to reprise her role as Tracy, who got married to Doug at the end of The Hangover. Barrese spent more of her screen time berrating Bradley Cooper about their whereabouts, so let’s hope she gets more action in The Hangover 3.
The casting news for Hunger Games: Catching Fire is continuing to pour in. With notable actors and actresses including Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jena Malone joining the original cast, the sequel is definitely shaping up pretty nicely. It seems like the casting people are making it a point to cast Finnick last, given the level of interest that fans have surrounding his character. However, two roles that have been cast are that of Cashmere and Seeder, which will be played by Stephanie Leigh Schlund and Maria Howell, respectively.
Last but certainly not the least, we’ve got Scary Movie 5. A couple of weeks ago, it was revealed that Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan will be joining the cast of the fifth movie of the not-so-scary comedy franchise. Now we just got wind that Terry Crews will be joining the odd duo in the duo. Aside from that, we’ve got more details on how things might end for LiLo and the winning Mr. Sheen (and when we say, we do mean, end).

Bring together some of Marvel’s most revered superheroes and you’ve got yourself a smashing hit in the form of The Avengers, which raked in over $1.46 billion worldwide. Even before the final numbers were in, it was pretty obvious that The Avengers 2 would get made. It was only a matter of when–and if we’re reading the signs right, it looks like we’ll see the much-awaited sequel hit theaters sometime in 2015.
There’s been a lot of speculation about where the boys of Hangover will find themselves in the third and final movie in the franchise. Two places that always came up were Tijuana and the usual Las Vegas. But aside from that, there’s also the matter of who’ll be joining Phil, Alan, and Stu in their final adventure. One of these will be the gorgeous Heather Graham, who made an appearance in the first movie as a stripper-slash-escort named Jade. Read more… »
People have been talking about The Hunger Games sequel ever since the first movie turned out to be such a huge hit. There are many reasons why Catching Fire is much-awaited, one of them being the fact that Jennifer Lawrence is set to return as the heroine, Katniss Everdeen. With production closing in, casting news for the movie has been rolling on consistently.
And because laughter is the best medicine, there is still a need for movies like Scary Movie 5 and Dumb and Dumber 2 that will give you many reasons to laugh, snort, and guffaw like there’s no tomorrow–provided they’re as good as their predecessors, that is.
Scary Movie 5 will hit theaters next April, with Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan joining the cast. However, the fate of Dumb and Dumber 2 still hangs in the balance, and while previous reports indicate that it’s not going to get made, it looks like there’s still a chance that the sequel will still see the light of day.
