“The Hunger Games” interactive photo details the doomed tributes

“The Hunger Games” interactive photo details the doomed tributes (photo)

Posted by on

As we march towards the March 23, 2012 release date for the eagerly anticipated adaptation of the bestselling novel “The Hunger Games,” new images continue to be rolled out revealing parts of the film. This time we don’t get a peek at the movie itself, but at the young cast who make up the “tributes,” a friendly term for the teenagers thrown into an arena-based fight to the death.

Vanity Fair has published an interactive photo showcasing the group, with a rollover feature that describes their character and how the actor snagged the role. Nine of the primary tributes are featured, including its lead star Jennifer Lawrence who plays the main character of Katniss Everdeen, and the photo also includes the non-tribute Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), who plays Katniss’ best friend and secret admirer.

One warning about the feature, however: if you haven’t read the books, the Vanity Fair photo does contain some spoilers, namely who lives and dies, so proceed with caution. The interactive image comes on the heels of character-specific posters released for the primary figures.

“The Hunger Games” follows Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence), a resident of the dystopian nation of Panem located within the ruins of the former North America. As retribution for the twelve outlying districts rising up against the Capitol nearly 100 years prior, two teenage subjects from each district are chosen to compete in the annual Hunger Games, a televised fight to the death.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
