Forget those summer blockbusters for a moment.

And let's focus instead on the only 2014 blockbuster that really matters.

It features a certain District 12 Victor, it comes out on November 21, it's the third film in its franchise... and we positively cannot wait for it!

We speak, of course, about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.

Lionsgate has released the first photos from this wildly anticipated film, and they feature Julianne Moore as President Coin, along with a look at Philip Seymoure Hoffman as Plutarch, a role he finished filming just before he died in February.

Click around now!

We're in the thick of Disney's Frozen taking over every corner of pop culture, so it seems like a fitting time to take a look at what makes Disney's princess movies so unique.

The answer: Not a whole lot. 

That hasn't sat well with many members of the Disney-viewing public, so Tumblr artist TT took matters into her own hands and released a series of racebent Disney princesses. 

What would our favorite Disney princesses look like if they weren't white? Take a look:

Ariel gets a makeover as artist TT's reimagined Little Mermaid.

Disney has long been accused of whitewashing its characters and failing to show women of color represented among the line of its princess stories.

It wasn't until 2009's The Princess and the Frog debuted Tiana that Disney had a Black princess. Prior to that, the only princesses of color were Jasmine, Mulan, and Pocahontas.

All the remaining princesses were white.

The worlds of art and visual effects lost an iconic figure today.

While HR Giger may not be a household name in the US, if you're a fan of science fiction films, you've almost certainly enjoyed his work at some point in the last 35 years.

Giger will perhaps be best remembered for a book of artwork he released in 1977 that inspired the appearance of the "xenomorph" character in Ridley Scott's original Alien film.

That movie, of course, launched a franchise that continues to spawn sequels to this day.

Except it's a guy doing the Napoleon Dynamite dance in his room for 100 straight days.

College student Matt Bray recently took part in the ProjectOneLife series on YouTube, accomplishing items from a wide-ranging bucket list that apparently includes doing a Napoleon Dynamite impression over and over and over and over.

Reviews for the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 are in - and they are positively glowing.

Come on, who doesn't love Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield?

But the reviews for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 itself? They are also in... and they aren't exactly as positive. Peruse a sampling below and decide if this is a film worth swinging into over the weekend.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Poster

Overstuffed plot and too many villains, but the visual effects pop, and Garfield/Stone are still better than Maguire/Dunst. - Richard Roeper

When Garfield conceals Peter's confused-angry- betrayed scowl beneath that shiny red mask, Spider-Man 2 summons the giddy derring-do of the best Iron Man offerings. It's a good movie that could have been great. - Robert Wilonsky

In just a few weeks, Kanye West will officially play the role of husband to Kim Kardashian.

After that, however, the rapper will morph into a movie star and producer, as the promotional machine for Yeezus has been released online.

It's unknown just what the movie will entail - but author Bret Easton Ellis penned the script, so it's expected to be a lot more than the sort of basic concert film that Justin Bieber and One Direction have recently made famous.

Ellis also wrote the book American Psycho, on which this poster is clearly based.

Check it out here and then click through a number of memorable pieces of movie artwork:
