Lorde is officially on The Hunger Games team.

The young singer confirmed today that she will write and sing an original song for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and that she will also be in charge of compiling the entire album.

"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” Lorde said in a statement. “The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience."

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 will be released on November 21, bringing back Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Liam Hemsworth as Gale and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta.

Listen up, movie fans. President Snow is here with a very important message.

Lionsgate has released the first teaser for The Hunger Games - Mockingjay Part 1 and it features Donald Sutherland as Katniss' evil nemesis, sending a message of propaganda to his citizens in the face of a pending revolution.

"Since the dark days our great nation has known only peace,” Snow preaches. “Ours is an elegant system, conceived to nourish and protect. Your districts are the body, the Capitol is the beating heart. Your hard work feeds us, and in return we feed and protect you."

Note that Snow has Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) by his side because - SPOILER ALERT!!! - the President will be using Katniss' quasi boyfriend against her in the third edition of this franchise.

Check out the promo now:

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin and Julianne Moore.

There are at least 11 reasons to love Jennifer Lawrence.

And one big reason right now for her fans to hate MTV.

The network announced its 2014 MTV Movie Awards nominees last week and not only was Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen excluded from the Best Hero category... all females were left out!

The list includes Henry Cavill as Clark Kent; Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man; Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins; Chris Hemsworth as Thor; and Channing Tatum as John Cale.

At the time of his death, Philip Seymour Hoffman had completed filming on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

But the actor - who came on board Catching Fire in the role of head gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee - still had a few scenes remaining when he died of a heroin overdose last week.

According to Page Six, however, Lionsgate will not recast the actor or even cut key scenes from the final installment of The Hunger Games franchise.

They will actually add him in via CGI.

“You can do digital things, you can have conversations where you’re not focusing on him but the people he’s talking to,” an insider tells The Hollywood Reporter of how this will be accomplished.

"Words cannot convey the devastating loss we are all feeling right now. Philip was a wonderful person and an exceptional talent, and our hearts are breaking."

"Our deepest condolences go out to his family."

What do Jennifer Lawrence and Miley Cyrus have in common? Liam Hemsworth

And this fantastic parody-mashup of the JLaw-Hemsworth flick Catching Fire and Miley's song about her split from Gayle himself.

Man, this is weirder than we thought. And awesome. Weird but awesome. Yeah, let's go with that.

Cheekily titled "Reaping Ball," the video rewrites the Miley song and video. If you ask me, this one's even better than the original (if only because of Peeta and Katniss).

Enjoy!

Sesame Street has done is again.

Having already parodied Homeland (via Homelamb) and Sons of Anarchy (via Sons of Poetry), the children's program has now set its sights on The Hunger Games.

It tells the tale of Cookieness Evereat and her friends Finnicky, Tick Tock Lady, and Pita  as they plot their escape from poking monkeys and tickling winds.

Forget the positive Catching Fire reviews from critics, folks, and check out this first look at The Hungry Games: Catching Fur. And may the cookies be ever in your flavor...

We are fewer than two weeks away from the release of Catching Fire.

How are you preparing for this opening? By re-watching the original? By viewing the Catching Fire trailer 27 times per day? By entering into a competition with your friends in which only one person comes out alive?

We really don't recommend the latter.

But we do recommend the following: it's a video of cats recreating The Hunger Games by using cardboard. What else do you need to know?!?

Forget Katniss for a moment, people, and focus below on CAT-niss:

The final trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire debuted last night during Game 4 of the World Series.

And the new spot throws some seriously high heat at Katniss and company.

The preview gives fans a new look at the arena for 75th edition of The Hunger Games, which will feature howler monkeys, Japperjays and many other obstacles for our heroes to overcome.

We also see plenty of Katniss, of course, along with her flying arrows, Peeta, Prim and we hear a warning/question from President Snow: Would you like to be in a real war?

This Hunger Games sequel comes out on November 22.

For more sneak peeks at what's to come, press Play on this Catching Fire TV spot and this international Catching Fire trailer.
