Julianne Moore is joining the adaptations of the final Hunger Games book, Mockingjay, as Alma Coin…and she feels the pressure. She spoke with Digital Spy about the responsibility she feels to bring this character on screen faithfully, and convincingly.
“There are some things that have been written that the fans are adamant be there,” Moore told Digital Spy. “We’re taking that responsibility very seriously.” Watch the video below:
As you can see, Mockingjay.net has gone through a total re-boot due to a change in management. Bear with us as we re-build, we have a lot of fun in store for you all.

Happy Monday, tributes! Lionsgate has just announced that Lily Rabe, who some of you may know from American Horror Story as Sister Mary Eunice, has been cast as Commander Lyme in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay 1 and 2! You can check her out on IMDB here.
Those of you dying for new imagery need wait no longer.

It’s begun, Tributes! We have our first official casting for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay 1 & 2! Natalie Dormer, who some of you may know as the actress who plays Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones, has been cast as Cressida, the Capitol director that relocates to District 13 with Plutarch Heavensbee and films Katniss throughout the rebellion.
Liam Hemsworth has been doing the media rounds for his latest film, Paranoia, which premieres in the US next weekend, on August 16th. However, it’s inevitable that he’d be asked some questions about his role of Gale in the Hunger Games franchise, and here’s some of what he had to say about it.
He talked to HitFix about Gale’s increased role in Catching Fire, but that Gale’s true protagonism doesn’t kick in until Mockingjay.
And via our friends at Hunger-Games.net, we also have video of Liam’s interview on Good Morning America, in which he talks about working with Jennifer Lawrence, director Francis Lawrence, and confirms that Mockingjay part 1 starts filming in September.
Are you looking forward to Gale’s role in Catching Fire and the Mockingjay films? Be sure to tell us what you think in a comment!
There’s been a lot of reports about further filming for Catching Fire happening over the past few weeks, with casting calls in Atlanta being announced even as recently as last weekend. But now our director himself, Francis Lawrence, confirmed at CinemaCon this week that filming for the movie has now wrapped and they’re working on editing, as reported via Twitter by Perri Nemiroff from Shockya and Movies.com.
With filming for Mockingjay reported to begin in September, Francis Lawrence still has a tight schedule ahead of him over the next few months. What do you think of this news?
Thanks to the Hunger Games Examiner for the tip!
Back when filming was first beginning, we reported that filming was going to be taking place at a man-made beach at Clayton County’s park The Beach. Thanks to a tip from @starfishtony, we now can view images of the Catching Fire Cornucopia on Google Maps!
And heeey, I don’t remember Suzanne Collins putting a purple water slide in the Arena!
In a very bizarre turn of casting events, Lionsgate has suddenly announced via CatchingFireCasting.com ALL of the remaining cast for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, including the elusive mystery woman, who has turned out to be an extremely terrible letdown (in my opinion). Cast includes:
- James Logan as District 5 Male
- Ivette Li-Sanchez as District 5 Female
- Justin Hix as District 6 Male
- Megan Hayes as District 6 Female
- Bobby Jordan as Blight
- John Casino as Woof
- Elena Sanchez as Cecelia
- Daniel Bernhardt as District 9 Male
- Marian Green as District 9 Female
- Jackson Spidell as District 10 Male
- Tiffany Waxler as District 10 Female
And the mystery woman is no mystery at all. She’s simply… Katniss’ mom.
