Cannes Film Festival is officially going on right now. Studios come out in droves to present their films for distribution, make casting announcements, throw lavish parties, and enjoy the films screened at the fest. It looks like Lionsgate is throwing its biggest bash ever to celebrate Catching Fire later this year and to garner interest and possibly international sales ahead of Mockingjay 1 & 2 hitting theaters in 2014 and 2015. Jennifer Lawrence is rumored to attend the soiree.
The Hunger Games cast’s other projects have also had some news. Sam Claflin‘s Love, Rosie, currently filming, and co-starring Lily Collins, has been picked up for international distribution by Mister Smith Entertainment. No word yet on domestic distribution for that one. Terrence Malick will reveal footage from his Knight of Cups, featuring Wes Bentley, to find international buyers. If Wes shows up in support, we’ll post pics here on the site. In addition, Philip Seymour Hoffman has been cast in the new film God’s Pocket.
If you missed it the other day, or just want a better look, here’s a closer photo of the Catching Fire display outside the Majestic Barriere hotel in Cannes, and a great video to see it all in action!
