Cinna, Haymitch, Lenny Kravitz, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Woody Harrelson
I was discussing this with my favorite snarky critic
@roxana_hadadi and we’ve both reached the conclusion that no company is doing a better job of reaching out to the social masses and getting them worked into a frenzy better than Lionsgate with “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
Sure, Bryan Singer is doing his best to hype “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” but that’s still a year away and he’s only one man. THGCF is a machine. A mighty Capitol machine that you can either embrace or be swallowed up by. There’s no alternative.

A cat’s take on Billy (Sam Rockwell) – note the stuffed animal stand-in.
I’m pretty sure “Seven Psychopaths” is going to be a guilty pleasure for me this fall starring Colin Farrell (“Total Recall“), Sam Rockwell (“Iron Man 2″), Woody Harrelson (“The Hunger Games“) about a writer whose friends steal a gangster’s dog.
Does this cat have better hair than Christopher Walken? Too close to call.
Just to raise the craziness scale a bit more of the film, a new trailer, “Seven PsychoCATS” has just been released featuring cats directed by Adult Swim alumni Jim Tozzi. Yes, it’s completely brilliant, but how could you go wrong with a cat channeling Christopher Walken?
“Seven Psychopaths” opens this Friday.

Woody Harrelson as corrupt Los Angeles police officer David Brown in “Rampart.”
It’s rare that an actor can overcome an average script and meddling directing to deliver a performance so mesmerizing that you get sucked into the movie despite its flaws, but Woody Harrelson accomplishes just that with a gripping, career best turn in “Rampart.”
When we’re introduced to David Brown (Harrelson, “Friends With Benefits”), we quickly learn he’s a police officer who’s not afraid of enjoying his position of authority. He doesn’t hesitate in abusing it either, no matter if it’s something as trivial as making a rookie cop finish her fries or brutally interrogating a suspect, David sees his way as the only way. More
