YA Movie News

Lots of great movie news this week!!


-I love this new photo of Cinna and Katniss-so heartbreaking and perfect, right?

-LOTS of Hunger Games news out this week-Mockingjay.net has a great roundup of posts. Here are some of my favorites:
The Hollywood Reporter has a great article about The Hunger Games-it's a fantastic read;
Hot Topic will carry a Hunger Games T-Shirt;
A HUGE #HungerGames50 giveaway is giving fans a chance to win tickets to the premire;
A Hunger Games online game is coming-debuting on March 23 and will have a map of Panem!

-The CW has a series in the works based on the upcoming YA novel The Selection by Kiera Cass. The Selection (the book) is out in April.

-I love when book to movie casting gets it right, and the first casting for the Beautiful Creatures movie did just that when they cast Viola Davis as Amma. Anyone else just love this??

-Downton Abbey fans-great news! Shirley MacLaine is joining the cast as Lady Cora's mother for Season 3! This makes me super excited for many reasons-I love Shirley MacLaine, I want a Season 3, and I want to know more about Cora's background!

-Remember all that craziness about Taylor Swift being cast in the Les Mis movie? Well, turns out, it was wrong. Stage actress Samantha Barks has been cast as Eponine-she played the role in London and was featured in the Les Mis 25th Anniversary Concert. I love this choice so much better than the previously reported Taylor Swift casting!

And can't forget the new Hunger Games trailer that was released this week!!
