The Hunger Games are back this week when sequel Catching Fire comes to theaters, and we have our official review on the buzzed-about film. Is Jennifer Lawrence still an impressive heroine? Is the story translated as well as it was in the first film? Do the new characters bring anything fresh to the franchise? We've got all these questions answered right here, in our video movie review.
As new Fall shows get canceled and renewed, there's another way we measure their success: by what we're still watching. Watch our segment of The Buzz to find out the five freshman series that had us enthralled just weeks into their first seasons.
Chris Pratt stars in Delivery Man as the best friend of Vince Vaughn's character, and the actor had to put on weight for the role. It's just one instance of Pratt's weight ups and downs for movies, and Pratt talked about the various challenges when I sat down with him recently. He also talked about missing his small screen home on Parks and Recreation, so watch to find out about all of Pratt's current projects!
Hailee Steinfeld plays Petra, one of the few girls in Ender's Game, and like her character, she fit right in with all the boys of the movie. We sat down with the actress to talk about how she got along with everyone on set, particularly her costar Asa Butterfield, and why she seems to love appearing in big-screen adaptations!
12 Years a Slave caused a huge stir back at the Toronto Internation Film Festival and for good reason: the movie is excellent. We caught the movie, one of this year's early award season front-runners, and are telling you now why the drama starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender is so good.
The Vampire Diaries returned this week with a few delights, like Damon and Elena together and Elena and Caroline making the big move to college, but the premiere also brought up a few big questions about where the season will go. Watch our video recap of the season five premiere to hear about the episode's biggest moments and what we still don't know.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian became parents this Summer, and in his first sit-down interview since Nori was born, Kanye is speaking out about loving Kim and being a a dad to his daughter on Kris Jenner's talk show, which we just got a peek at today. While Kanye speaks lovingly of his brand-new family unit, it sounds like he's long been contemplating fatherhood if you've ever listened to his lyrics. The rapper has mused about family, being a dad, and other thoughts that may indicate just what kind of father the well-dressed man will be. Let's go through his most telling rap lyrics for a preview.
Harrison Ford upped the celebrity A-list status of Comic-Con in San Diego on Thursday. Harrison was there to promote Ender's Game, and while he didn't seem hugely excited to talk about a hypothetical Han Solo and Indiana Jones meetup during the panel, he was game to gush about his young costar Asa Butterfield. Harrison described Asa as a "smart, hard-working, devoted kid" who will be around in the Hollywood game for many years to come. Check it out, and watch all of our Comic-Con videos!
Shailene Woodley didn't take the decision lightly when she signed on to star in the big-screen adaptation of Divergent. We caught up with the actress at Comic-Con, where she joined the rest of the cast to promote Divergent and show off the first footage from the film. Shailene talked about the important "self-love" message of the books, which characters are her favorites, and what it was like to go through the "badass" training. Watch now and see all our Comic-Con interviews!
Pacific Rim is the latest action flick to hit the big screen this Summer, but is Guillermo del Toro's monsters vs. aliens movie entertaining enough to get you in the theater? Check out our video review to find if Pacific Rim is a watch, pass, or rent.
Twelve years after Monsters, Inc. told us the story of two scary guys, Mike and Sulley, they're back in this weekend's Monsters University, and this time, we're going back to college with the beloved characters. The Pixar prequel gives us an origin story, but is the animated family film worth checking out, even if you're not a kid? Find out from our video movie review.
Nathan Fillon is Monsters University's resident big man on campus, but when I chatted with Fillion, the actor maintained that his real college persona was far from his animated character's. He also talked about what it's like to have your voice used for someone who's so flawed and smarmy, and how if he could voice any character, he'd pick an animated version of his short-lived series Firefly! Watch the interview to hear all that and more.
