‘Mockingjay Part 1′ Featured in Empire Magazine’s Winter Preview

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is featured in Empire Magazine’s Winter Preview Issue. The article below, features the promotional image of Finnick Odair in his District 13 getup. Sam Claflin, who plays Odair in the films, talks about the legacy of the film series. Director Francis Lawrence warns fans not to expect the “squeaky-clean ending that people expect from a young adult series.” Oh Francis, we know. We know!

The issue also features in interview with Julianne Moore, focused mostly on her film Maps to the Stars, but she did speak briefly about working again with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Woody Harrelson.

Moore features as President Alma Coin, another high-profile co-star for Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss. “I did the bulk of my work on the film with Phil,” she says, quietly. Hoffman was her friend and co-star from Boogie NightsThe Big Lebowski and Magnolia. “He had pretty much completed shooting, so I had done all my work with him…”Her voice trails off, a cue for Empire to move on.

She must’ve also enjoyed re-teaming with Hunger Gamesmainstay Woody Harrelson, we inquire (the two having worked together on The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio and the TV picture Game Change, where Moore played Sarah Palin)? “Oh yes,” she coos. “It was great fun to be with Woody and sometimes you forgot you were in this dystopian fantasy. Then someone would walk by with half their head shaved and there would be weird things coming out of the back of them and you were like, ‘Oh yeah, this is a fantasy movie!’”

Moore’s route into The Hunger Games came, somewhat predictably, through her two children. She picked up her daughter’s copy of the first book in the series while on holiday, when her kids were playing table tennis. “I thought it was great and my children love these books, so for them it is very exciting for me to be in the franchise. Generally, I make movies that they can’t see! And they both love Jennifer Lawrence. She is very, very easy to love.”

Sam Claflin’s other upcoming film The Riot Club is also given a feature in the issue. Check out the Posh boys below.

Jennifer Lawrence in talks for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Hateful Eight’

2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Jennifer Lawrence just may be joining Quentin Tarantino’s next film, Hateful Eight. Collider reports on the rumors (nothing is in stone), but it sure would be an interesting thing to add to her roster!

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s trailer description for The Hateful Eight, we’ve learned a little more about the highly-anticipated Western.  We can say that Lawrence is in talks to join the film, and this is not a “wish-list” thing where she’s one of many actresses being considered for a role.

Lawrence’s entrance into the casting process is interesting for a couple reasons.  First, as we learned from the trailer, presumably only one of the “Hateful Eight” is a female: Daisy Domergue, “The Prisoner”.  Amber Tamblyn and Zoe Bell read the roles of Daisy and Six Horse Judy, respectively, during the live-read of the script, but the official cast for the film has yet to be announced.  Tarantino did further work on the screenplay after the live-read, so it’s possible that Lawrence is playing one of the two aforementioned roles or someone else entirely.

What would you think about this? I kind of love it!
