Trailer: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, part 2

The first trailer for the conclusion to the Hunger Games series has been released, and it promises a rousing finale! May the odds be ever in your favour of seeing us at the cinema when The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is released on 19th November!

Trailer: X-Men: Days Of Future Past

The final trailer for the latest X-Men movie, with the original director who started the franchise with X-Men and X2 – Bryan Singer – returning to bring the story full circle with Wolverine being sent back in time from the future to prevent a war.

First Impressions: The two previous trailers didn’t do a lot to quiet concerns over the X-Men franchise, thankfully this does, and frankly now looks like Bryan Singer finally has his comic book mojo back after the lacklustre Superman Returns. X-Men: Days Of Future Past is released in the U.K. on 22nd May.

Trailer: The Hunger Games – Catching Fire

The first trailer for the second in the Hunger Games series.

First Impressions: Sequels can sometimes feel too separated from the previous movies, this however does feel as if it’s in the same world which was established in the first. Great to see that all of the cast have returned for their roles that were setup in that movie as well as some great casting additions like Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Catching Fire is released in the UK on November 22nd.

Each year, as a reminder to the districts of their place after previous attempts at an uprising, one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 are chosen from each district to compete in the hunger games, a televised contest where each of the 24 entrants must fight to the death until only one remains victorious.

Trailer: The Hunger Games

Based on the book by Suzanne Collins and starring Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone, X-Men: First Class), set in the future in a post apocalyptic world where people are chosen once a year to compete in a battle to the death.

First Impressions: Looks like a sort of cross between Battle Royale and The Running Man, may turn out to be pretty good, though how well it does depends on how fans of the book take to it. Jennifer Lawrence, a rising star, may do well out of this if the movie is a success.
