Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games film franchise is a four-part adaptation of the trilogy of the same name. Set in a dystopian future that was once North America, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is thrust into the dangerous competition called the Hunger Games, a nationally televised event in which “tributes,” a boy and a girl from each of the 12 districts, battle to the death until only one person survives.

Katniss along with her fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellarck (Josh Hutcherson) come out as victors but also sparking a revolution amongst the impoverished districts. In order to snuff out that spark, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) holds the Third Quarter Quell, in which previous winners of the Hunger Games have to battle amongst each other once more.

Sweded Trailers For 2013’s Biggest Blockbuster Films

BAADASSSSS!   |

Pacific Rim

Sometimes you can gauge the audience interest in a potential tentpole blockbuster movie simply by observing the great lengths certain individuals will go to in order to honor those big-budget entertainments, or even burn them in mocking effigy.

Whenever a new trailer for one of these eagerly-anticipated features is released you can always expect there to be a “sweded” version or two uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo within days. For those of you unfamiliar with this term, “sweded” basically means a group of amateur filmmakers get together with whatever resources they can scrounge up and make their own identical version of the slicker Hollywood trailers. Some of them often use shots from the real trailers to plug in gaps in their dollar bin attempts, but the makers of the best sweded trailers will recreate every component themselves, from the visual effects to the shot composition to even the bloody generic music that underscores these 2.5-minute blasts of money shots.

Submitted for your approval and enjoyment are sweded trailers for 8 of the year’s biggest blockbusters, like Star Trek Into Darkness, Pacific Rim, Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, and more. Depending on your perspective you might find some of these homemade previews better than the genuine articles. Even if you don’t, you have to admit they are pretty amusing.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Theatrical PosterThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Based on the Novel by Suzanne Collins
Lionsgate
Rated PG-13 | 146 Minutes
Release Date: November 22, 2013

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens up just as Katniss and Peeta, the winners of the 74th Hunger Games, are preparing to go on their victory tour of the 12 Districts and Capital of Panem and trying to find a rhythm to their now dual lives – the theatrical star-crossed lovers while in the spotlight and the barely acquaintances when the camera is off in their ever-dwindling private lives. As their tour begins, the pair sees from district to district signs of rebellion and discourse against the Capital by the citizens, the unplanned consequence of their televised defiance against the game’s rules during the events of The Hunger Games.

‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Star Josh Hutcherson On What Audiences Will See In IMAX

Catching Fire

The action sequences for The Hunger Games weren’t necessarily the best mostly because of the shaky camera scenes and jarring transitions. Hopefully director Francis Lawrence can learn from those mistakes and create a more fluid action sequence that is easier on the eyes. Lawrence is currently overseeing production for the film and as it gets closer to wrapping up shooing, one of the film’s stars, Josh Hutcherson, is speaking out about what we will see and how it will look on IMAX.

We’ve recently learned that some of the film’s action sequences will be shot using IMAX cameras. The success of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and the final two films of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy has set a trend for blockbuster films to use the technology in its rawest form.

Mockingjay

Production for Catching Fire, the sequel adaptation for Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games, is already underway with Francis Lawrence (Constantine & I am Legend) serving as director. Originally it was thought that Lionsgate would move forward with a new director overseeing production for the two-part finale adaptation of Mockingjay. Well, that is no longer the case as Collider reports that Lawrence will be directing the final two films of The Hunger Games trilogy.

Collider was the very first to discover details the latest deal, which is still very hot so it could be a while before Lionsgate officially announces the deal as set. Game Changer screenwriter Danny Strong is currently busy adapting the final two parts of Mockingjay. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I arrives on November 21, 2014, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II hits theaters the following year on November 20, 2015.

Mockingjay

The first part of The Hunger Games trilogy featured the writing talents of Gary Ross, Suzanne Collins, and Billy Ray. Catching Fire, the second part (to be directed by Francis Lawrence), features a draft penned by Slumdog Millionaire screenwriter Simon Befouy and rewrites by Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt. While it’s very likely that Lionsgate will hire a new director for Mockingjay, the studio has already hired a screenwriter to adapt the third and final part of The Hunger Games trilogy. Word is that Lionsgate is hiring Game Change and Recount wrtier Danny Strong to pen the draft for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & Part 2.

Variety’s report confirms that the studio will be changing writers for the third act of the trilogy. Strong, who has written two powerful political pieces for HBO Films, Recount and Game Change, has already turned in a script for Lee Daniel’s upcoming historical drama The Butler. Strong already has an impressive track record for writing quality scripts. His two political pieces have won a number of Emmys. Daniels’ is also using his script for the upcoming political drama The Butler, starring Forest Whitaker.
