Jennifer Lawrence was back in full Katniss mode, complete with her signature braid and bow and arrows, on the set of Catching Fire in Hawaii this week. She was joined by her costars Josh Hutcherson and Sam Claflin, who play Peeta and Finnick, respectively, in the Hunger Games sequel. The story takes Katniss and Peeta back into another Hunger Games, and this time the arena is mostly covered in water, which explains the wetsuits and diving we're seeing here. Check out all the pics to see Peeta get a helping hand from Finnick, Finnick taking a dive, and Katniss chowing down on some fruits of the sea.
Spoiler alert: the Quarter Quell has begun! We've got photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and newcomer Sam Claflin diving into Catching Fire's on-set — and at sea — action while filming in Hawaii, plus the latest on Jennifer's award season nominations. Check out their intense swimwear and get your Hunger Games fix in today's PopSugar Rush!
Jennifer Lawrence suited up in her Katniss Everdeen gear to film scenes for Catching Fire in Maui yesterday. Josh Hutcherson was also in character on the ocean set. Jennifer arrived in Hawaii last week and spent a few days relaxing in the sun before getting to work. Jennifer wore a bikini on the beach with her brother on Thanksgiving Day, after also sporting a two-piece the afternoon before. While Jennifer focuses on the Hunger Games sequel, her other project, Silver Linings Playbook, is in theaters. The movie is getting great reviews and was even up for the best ensemble performance honor at last night's Gotham Independent Film Awards in NYC, though the cast of Your Sister's Sister took home the win.
An animated movie about a girl who gets magically shrunk down and embarks on an adventure in the forest sounds like a rollicking good time, but the trailer for Epic is more serious than you may imagine. Amanda Seyfried voices Mary Katherine, the daughter of a scientist, who ventures out into the forest during a storm only to realize that she's been magically miniaturized. Now surrounded by foreign creatures, she meets a sassy slug (Aziz Ansari) and an army of leaf soldiers. Soon, she becomes immersed in an attempt to rescue the forest from destruction at the hands of Mandrake (Christoph Waltz).
It may be a family film, but putting Snow Patrol in this trailer brings an introspective — dare I say emotional? — vibe to Epic. I laughed out loud at Ansari's line, and I'm looking forward to hearing the many, many voices included on the roster — Josh Hutcherson, Colin Farrell, Jason Sudeikis, Beyoncé Knowles, Steven Tyler, and Pitbull are all lending their pipes to the movie. The movie is set for a May 24 release, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
Red Dawn finally gets a theater release this week, which means we'll get a chance to see Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, and Josh Peck in the remake of the '80s film about a group of teenagers who band together to protect their town from a foreign invasion. To get you geared up, we've got five exclusive images from the film. Check 'em out before Red Dawn hits theaters on Nov. 21.

The cast of Catching Fire is now complete! Sam Claflin has been confirmed to play Finnick, and Betee has just been cast as well. We can't wait for the hotly anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games, and thankfully Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and the rest of the first chapter's players will be back to reprise their roles. That said, there are also some new additions to the Hunger Games family. Check out the cast, and let us know how excited you are for the movie!
The cast of the second Hunger Games installment showed up on set in Atlanta yesterday. Production on Catching Fire got started on Monday, and Josh Hutcherson, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Willow Shields, Alan Ritchson, Jeffrey Wright, and others reported for work. Sam made his debut as Finnick Odair, while Jena got into character as Johanna Mason. Jennifer Lawrence, who is sporting darker hair for Katniss, wasn't spotted during the day of filming, but she talked about getting back to her big-screen role during a recent appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson weren't hot young stars quite yet when they filmed Red Dawn in 2009, but they are now, which means it's a great time for the movie to be released. In the trailer for the reboot of the '80s film, Hemsworth stars as Jed, a Marine who's visiting home when the United States is suddenly and aggressively attacked by North Korean forces. As the government (and society as we know it) collapses, Jed escapes with his younger brother Matt (Josh Peck) and then heads up a ragtag group of renegades (including Hutcherson) determined to fight the communist invaders and save the country.
It's not just Hemsworth and Hutcherson that make this preview so exciting — the special effects look awesome and the story line seems accessible, even for people who don't love political thrillers. The action-packed flick opens in November, but you can take a peek at the trailer after the jump.
As a fan of both Thor and The Hunger Games, I'm excited to see the first images of Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson starring together in the remake of '80s action flick Red Dawn. The film, which revolves around a group of high school students who put aside their differences to protect their school from an invasion, was actually shot in 2009, before Hemsworth or Hutcherson had their breakout roles.
We also get a peek at Josh Peck, who plays Hemsworth's younger brother. All three guys definitely look a little more baby-faced than they do now — doesn't Chris look more like his little brother, Liam, without all those Thor muscles? I'll be curious to see if these guys can fill the shoes of the original cast (which includes Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen) when Red Dawn opens on Nov. 21.

Josh Hutcherson took his dog, Driver, for a walk in LA yesterday. The Hunger Games star stayed cool in jeans and a white tee while heading back to his car with the pit bull, who he adopted earlier this year.
Josh is nominated for two Teen Choice Awards this weekend. He's up for the choice movie actor honor for his roles in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and The Hunger Games, as well as choice movie lip lock with his costar Jennifer Lawrence. The pair will reunite for the movie's sequel Catching Fire later this year, along with new cast members like Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amanda Plummer. There are more actors yet to be added to the film, and you can head to Buzz for all the Catching Fire casting news as it happens.
