- Having left behind the "arena" ¿ a wooded realm where teenagers from across the districts of the totalitarian Panem are set against each other in a televised kill-or-be-killed death match ¿ at the conclusion of 2013's "Catching Fire," "Mockingjay" moves into a greater war, where Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), the reluctant participant plucked out of the mining region of District 12, discovers a wider network of like-minded rebels.
- Rebel Wilson confusses and titillates at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards while tax-paying procrastinators struggled to submit their returns on a temporarily floundering TurboTax online. In gun control news, a sadly ironic turn of events took place at the first 500 Sprint Cup race sponsored by the NRA as a NASCAR fan shot himself in the head after an apparent argument with a fellow racing fan.
- Entertainment Weekly's look at "Catching Fire," the latest installment of the Hunger Games series highlights the flexibility of star Jennifer Lawrence. On the EW cover, she sports a futuristic jump suit and quiver of arrows, part of her battle gear in the fight for Panem. She's the picture of a feisty teen, ready for adventure.
