Happy 4th of July! Here are three movies you can stream right now that will make you happy things aren't that bad in the U.S. Maybe.
Honestly, we forgot how much we love creepy, conniving President Snow. In this exclusive, never-seen deleted scene from the first installment of The Hunger Games — which will be included in The Complete 4-Film Collection being released later this month — we’re reminded what a diabolical dictator he really is. Head Gamemaker Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley), he of the crazy beard, has quite the swing in his step as he visits Snow (Donald Sutherland) in his rose garden.
When a dystopian world cheerily televises the slaughter of youths for sport, you can expect a whole lot of death. Now that the Hunger Games series is reaching its conclusion with Mockingjay — Part 2, Yahoo Movies has compiled a list of the most momentous casualties across all four movies. Spoilers follow!

You won’t have to go too far in your way-back machines to remember the time when every website in the world was speculating about who should play Katniss Everdeen in the highly anticipated adaptation of The Hunger Games, directed by Gary Ross. Of course, we all know what happened next: then-Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence nabbed the role in March 2011 and went on to slay some box offices, win an Oscar for another project, and become one of the most sought-after stars in all the land. But, now that we’re staring down the final installment of the series, Mockingjay — Part 2 out on Nov. 20, what became of all those other ingénues? We know more than 50 young women auditioned for the part, which was described in its casting call for Caucasian actresses between ages 15 and 20 to be “underfed but strong,” and “naturally pretty underneath her tomboyishness,” according to the Wall Street Journal just days before Lawrence was crowned Katniss.
There’s never a dull moment when Jennifer Lawrence hits the red carpet for premieres, conventions, and award ceremonies. As she finishes her press tour for the final installment of the Hunger Games saga —Mockingjay - Part 2, which opens on Nov. 20 — we wanted to take a fond look back at some of our favorite funny, quirky and less-than-coordinated moments that are pure J.Law gold.
Katniss Everdeen is getting into the theme park business, with Lionsgate set to bring theme park attractions based on 'The Hunger Games' franchise to Dubai.
“There was one film that I wanted… I think it was Flashdance? Seems like a harsh thing to say to a guy who had recently starred in an Oscar-winning film, and headlined some of the biggest flicks of the 70’s, but then again, the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced movie did make $201 million in 1983, so you can’t fault them for picking Michael Nouri for the role of steel-mill owner Nick. Three decades later, Sutherland was more successful in campaigning for a role, writing his way into the Hunger Games series as the nefarious President Snow.
The three-finger salute from the Hollywood movie The Hunger Games is being used as a real symbol of resistance in Thailand. A spokesman for the film distributor Lionsgate said the company was aware of the Thai protest but had no comment.
