‘The Hunger Games’ Premiere: Red Carpet Photos

HollywoodNews.com: Stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth celebrate the premiere of the first of four planned films based on the trilogy of best-selling novels by Suzanne Collins.
“The Hunger Games” will open to the general public in more than 3,000 theaters on March 23, and is on its way to gross at least $95 million in its opening weekend.
Enjoy the ‘The Hunger Games’ Premiere red carpet photos:

‘Experts looking ahead to “The Hunger Games” wondering if the adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel has the ability to fill “Twilight’s” massive box office shoes have a little more indication of just how big the March 23 opening looks to be.
Fandango reports that “Hunger Games” tickets, which went on advanced sale earlier this week, broke the previous first day advance ticket-seller record held by “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” which was set on Friday, May 14, 2010.
“‘The Hunger Games’ is off to a fantastic start,” said Rick Butler, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Fandango, in a release. “We saw the biggest first day advance ticketing sales in our company’s nearly 12-year history – which is especially impressive for a March release and a non-sequel.”
The site reports that theater owners are continuing to add new showtimes, while fans are scooping up advance tickets.
Gary Ross directs this first installment in the “Hunger Games” series, which stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, a teenager enrolled in a futuristic survival contest. Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Wes Bentley, Toby Jones, Alexander Ludwig, Isabelle Fuhrman, Amandla Stenberg, Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland co-star in the drama, which is shaping up to be a massive event.’

Warner Bros hides Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows…

HollywoodNews.com: There’s a new Tim Burton coming out from Warner Bros. in just over two months. Aside from a couple stills and some half-hearted interview statements from the cast and Mr. Burton, we haven’t heard or seen a thing from it. No posters, no trailers, no TV spots, nothing. It’s October of 1996, and I’m of course referring to Mars Attacks!. Many of my readers are too young to remember way-back-when, but the near-absence of marketing materials for Tim Burton’s $80 million private-joke (which today plays like half-blockbuster deconstruction and half-right wing political fantasy) was a source of frustration for a 16-year old Tim Burton fan who was eagerly awaiting that first preview. Today we stand in the same boat with another Warner Bros-funded Tim Burton ‘comedy’. But just over fifteen years later, what was a source of frustration is now a pleasant surprise.
Nine weeks to go, and I really don’t need to see an onslaught of spoiler-filled marketing materials for the upcoming Dark Shadows. Ten weeks to go, and I have absolutely no idea what kind of film Tim Burton and his merry band have delivered. I don’t know what it looks like, what the tone is, or all-that much about the plot. And in this era of ‘spoil the movie a year in advance’, that’s a special thing indeed.
Whether because Warner Bros. didn’t know how to sell the sci-fi horror/comedy or because they saw the writing on the wall and tried to limit their financial losses, the studio waited until 4 weeks prior to release to unleash that first Mars Attacks! trailer. Attached to Space Jam, the 2.5-minute trailer was pretty much all we saw of the film in America, aside from a TV spot or two until Thanksgiving weekend, when Warner Bros. held a national sneak preview. I attended that sneak preview, loved the hell out of the movie, and spent the next two weeks trying (in vain) to convince friends and peers that it was absolutely worth checking out. But, in retrospect, it was a pretty stupid idea for Warner Bros to sneak a genuine cult film so that the few die-hards could see it two weeks early and not contribute one dime to the box office (all ticket sales went to Space Jam, which played for free afterward). But come [...]

“The Vow” and “Safe House” fend off “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance”

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: It was yet another ‘photo-finish’ at the box office over this President’s Day weekend, but as always, it’s the hard numbers rather than the arbitrary rankings that matter. But since we need to decide which movies to discuss first, in order we shall go! For the moment, it appears that Safe House will top the charts in its second weekend after barely missing the top slot last weekend. It grossed $23.9 million over the Fri-Sun weekend and $28 million over the holiday. Safe House will have grossed $82 million by Monday, a rather huge total for Mr. Washington. In just eleven days, Safe House is Washington’s 7th-biggest grosser, out-grossing such films as Training Day ($76 million), Man On Fire ($77 million), and Unstoppable ($81 million). Barring a complete collapse, Safe House should become Denzel Washington’s fifth $100 million grosser over the next weekend, with an outside shot of eclipsing the $130 million gross of American Gangster, which is currently his top grosser. While we can debate how much credit co-star Ryan Reynolds gets for this one (he certainly didn’t hurt…), Safe House is already his fourth-biggest grosser and will likely out-gross Green Lantern’s $116 million total in a few weeks. I’m frankly shocked at the strong legs for this one, as it’s certainly one of Washington’s worst genre entries in a long career with a number of solid adult-skewing action pictures (it looks like it was shot through a puke filter and edited in a blender, plus the script is so generic it could have been written in a Mad Libs book). Still, star-power is a rare thing these days, and Denzel Washington clearly has it.
So does Channing Tatum and, in the right project, Rachel McAdams, so it will be interesting to see how The Vow’s popularity affect next month’s 21 Jump Street. The Vow is estimated to gross around $23.6 million for the Fri-Sun period and $27.4 million for the Fri-Sun period. No matter who ends up on top, both films exhibited strong holds. With $89 million by Monday, The Vow is already Screen Gems’s highest grossing film ever, topping the $80 million total of Dear John. The 43% drop for The Vow is slightly smaller than the 47% drop for Dear John, but the new film was bolstered by a [...]

Vanessa Hudgens talks living in homeless shelter for two weeks

HollywoodNews.com: Vanessa Hudgens will play a pregnant, homeless teenager in the upcoming film ‘Gimme Shelter,’ and it seems she worked hard to get into the mind of the role.
Hudgens revealed to Rachael Ray that she chose to live in a homeless shelter for two weeks before filming began in order to identify with her character, states UsMagazine.com. “I lived there with all the girls, with all the kids, so I think that’s really interesting because you find so much more about yourself,” Hudgens commented.
Hudgens also chopped off much of her hair for the role, something she admits she did herself: “I did that to myself, yes I did.”
