"There's a whole generation that's never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen," says director James Cameron. "And this will be Titanic as you've never seen it before, digitally remastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D. With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike."

Will you go see the Leo and Kate classic again?

A pair of relatively unknown actresses have joined Team Katniss.

Latarsha Rose and Brooke Bundy will portray stylists Portia and Octavia, respectively, in the widely-anticipated big screen version of the Suzanne Collins' novel.

Rose, who will pretty up Peeta for The Capitol's devious event, has thus far enjoyed small roles in All My Children, CSI, Bones, Swingtown and Law & Order.

Bundy is even more of an unknown. Her role of Octavia, a member of Katniss' prep team, will be her first major role of any kind.

Neither character plays an integral part in the books, but they add flare and character to what is often a sullen, serious story.

The Hunger Games comes out on March 23, 2012.

I love this story - and if I had said no, I would regret it every day.

So says Jennifer Lawrence to Entertainment Weekly in that magazine's latest issue. The Winter's Bone star was a controversial choice to portray Katniss Everdeen, mostly due to her age and blonde hair color. But a simple dye job has at least taken care of the latter problem.

Is this the image of Katniss on the big screen you had in mind, readers?

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss

In an interview with the publication, Lawrence laughed because she recounted the experience of being transformed into the novel's main character... and realized it was akin to exactly what Katniss went through as a Tribute.

Johnny Depp has found his Lone Ranger in Armie Hammer.

The 24-year-old, who portrayed Mark Zuckerberg's nemeses the Winklevoss Twins in The Social Network, will play the masked hero in Disney’s adaptation of The Lone Ranger, with the legendary Depp alongside him as Tonto.

Gore Verbinski, who directed Depp in Rango and the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies, will helm the film, with Jerry Bruckheimer producing.

Unlike in the iconic 1950s TV show, Depp’s Tonto will be more than The Lone Ranger’s mere sidekick. When the idea came up [for the movie], Depp started thinking about Tonto and what could be done to "reinvent the relationship."

The star, who is part Native-American, says the film is his way of trying to re-shape the way they are treated throughout cinema, and to "turn it on its head.”

Hammer can also be seen in Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar as Clyde Tolson, an FBI official who some say was romantically involved with FBI director J. Edgar Hoover (Leonardo DiCaprio). The biopic is scheduled for a December release.

Angelina Jolie’s drama about the Bosnian War has a title.

It’s now called In the Land of Blood and Honey. But why?

“It’s a heavy film,” she tells EW at the Cannes Film Festival. “You want to find that title that really helps the audience know what they’re walking into.”

Angelina the GoddessFor months, it has been known as the Angelina Jolie Bosnian War Movie, and naming it was “driving me crazy. I have lists and lists of titles all over.”

Jolie, who wrote and directed the film, but does NOT star in it, had to settle on a name at some point. The release date is currently set for Dec. 23.

Blood and Honey, which she shot last October in Eastern Europe, focuses on a young Serbian man and a Bosnian-Muslim woman in the war of 1992.

The conflict tears them - and the former Yugoslavia - apart.

The Hunger Games has rounded out its Tributes.

Alexander Ludwig and Isabelle Fuhrman have landed the key roles of Cato and Clove in the film, the District 2 representatives who serve as major foils for Katniss and Peeta during the Games themselves.

Ludwig is best known for a part in The Race to Witch Mountain, while Fuhrman guest-starred on The Whole Truth last year.

The additions of these young stars mean the movie has filled every Tribute role from the book. It also found its Haymitch yesterday in the form of Woody Harrelson.

Almost all major characters have now been cast. All that remains is for filming to commence and for fans to line up down the block when The Hunger Games hits theaters on March 23, 2012.

Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, meet your mentor.

Veteran actor and Oscar nominee Woody Harrelson has landed the vital role of Haymitch Abernathy in The Hunger Games. As fans of the book series know, this character is key to the trilogy, serving as the teacher for Katniss and Peeta inside the Capitol arena during its fatally entertaining event.

The champion of the 50th Hunger Games, Haymitch is a drunk who has a love/hate relationship with Lawrence's Katniss. John C. Reilly was initially rumored for the role, but anyone who saw Kingpin has no doubt about Harrelson's ability to act inebriated.

What do you think of this casting choice, fans of the novel?

An Oscar nominee has landed a pivotal supporting role in The Hunger Games.

Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada, Burlesque, Easy A) will come on board the beloved trilogy as Caesar Flickerman, the host of the title event and the man responsible for interviewing Katniss, Peeta and company in front of the viewing audience.

A relatively harmless character in the grand scheme of the Capitol, Flickerman is a flamboyant individual, making Tucci the ideal fit. He joins Wes Bentley as the two actors most recently named to the cast.

We'll still awaiting word on two of the most vital roles of all: President Snow and Haymitch.
