Lionsgate to Bring Us "The Hunger Games: The Exhibition" Summer 2015

Lionsgate announced a touring exhibit The Hunger Games: The Exhibition, which "will include interactive displays of authentic costumes, props and other elements of the world of The Hunger Games".
“The Hunger Games: The Exhibition” will launch several months ahead of the November 20, 2015 worldwide release of the fourth Hunger Games film, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, and will incorporate artifacts featured in the first three films from locations within the Capitol and the various Districts of Panem. The exhibition will be featured in major museums and institutions across the country and will be supported by a multimedia promotional effort and nationwide advance ticket sales.

“Now that we’ve built a critical mass of intellectual property, we’re committed to extending our brands into exciting new businesses that create opportunities for our fans to engage with our properties at the same time they deliver significant incremental financial benefits to Lionsgate,” said Palen. “We’re thrilled to launch this initiative with the U.S. tour of The Hunger Games exhibition, which celebrates the world of The Hunger Games and offers Hunger Games fans an extensive behind-the-scenes look at the movie-making process.” He noted that the exhibits will also be paired with local school curricula, and nearly all aspects of the tour will be interactive.
No news yet of where exactly the exhibit will stop, but we'll keep you posted once we find out!

Eugenie Bondurant Cast as Tigris!

A while ago, Nina Jacobson tweeted about Tigris' amazing make-up transformation and her super cool shop, and now we finally have a face to the character!

Eugenie Bondurant will play Tigris, the tiger-like Hunger Games stylist-turned shopkeep who hid Katniss, Peeta and the rest of (what was left of) Squad 451 in her cellar.

WATCH: X-Men Days of Future Past Clip with Jennifer Lawrence

We saw Amazing Spiderman 2 the other day, and was super stoked to see an X-Men Days of Future Past clip at the end of the credits. Don't you just laugh hysterically at all the "normies" leaving the theatre? HELLO, IT'S A MARVEL MOVIE!! Does a bear crap in the woods? Of course there is a post credits scene!!

Anyway, this one features Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique so needless to say..... awesomeness.

Check it:

Michelle Forbes Cast as Lt. Jackson in Mockingjay Part 2!

Though filming has been underway for some time, Lionsgate has just announced another addition to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay in Michelle Forbes.

The actress will play Lt. Jackson in the second half of the two-part finale.

In the books by Suzanne Collins, Jackson is a soldier from District 13. She becomes a part of Squad 451 as a sharp shooter alongside Katniss, Finnick, and Gale. She also helps Peeta get his memory back by playing a real-or-not-real game.

Forbes’ IMDb had listed Mockingjay as one of her credits for some time, but the news of her casting wasn’t confirmed until today.

I hope this is the start of some kind of trickle of news/teaser stuff after a (not so) long period of drought!
