New “The Hunger Games” images show Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz and more


Posted by on

A new year, and new reasons to be excited for “The Hunger Games.” Lionsgate has released some new stills and behind-the-scenes images from the upcoming film that give a good look at some new sequences that haven’t been teased in previous promotions.

Definitely the most exciting of the new images is the shot of Cinna, Haymitch and Peeta preparing for the Hunger Games. Skeptics have criticized Woody Harrelson‘s hair as Haymitch, but we’d argue that this is the best shot we’ve seen of him yet. The wig doesn’t look that bad, and he looks more disgruntled drunk than, well, whatever he was in the trailer. It’s also always nice to see new images of Peeta and fan-favorite Cinna, especially since Lenny Kravitz is playing the latter.

The other main new still shows Katniss being walked through Capitol hallways before the Hunger Games begin. We’re not sure whether this shot is before her training or right as she’s about to enter the Games, but either way it shows a look at director Gary Ross‘s dystopian futuristic take on “The Hunger Games” that we haven’t seen before. And we like it very much.

The other images, including shots of Katniss, Rue and Effie Trinket, have all been released before, but what are new are two behind-the-scenes stills showing Gary Ross directing and Jennifer Lawrence acting. They’re nothing extraordinary, but any new “Hunger Games” news is good “Hunger Games” news for us.

“The Hunger Games” tells the story of Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl from the poor District 12 section of the futuristic country Panem who volunteers herself into the annual Hunger Games to take the place of her sister. In the Hunger Games, she must fight to the death against 23 of her peers on national television to win fame and fortune to her District. But Katniss only thinks about her survival and returning to her family, and that’s what gives her the edge. “The Hunger Games” hits theaters on March 23, 2012.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

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.

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

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.
