Taylor Swift + Katniss Everdeen = Utter awesomeness.

Granted, the singer doesn't actually interact with the District 12 resident in the following video - which is for "Safe and Sound," the single by Swift and The Civil Wars that will be included on The Hunger Games soundtrack - but still. That notion makes us smile.

Swift and Civil Wars

Below, watch as Taylor wanders around the forest alone, barefoot and ragged, never actually meeting with The Civil Wars (who opened for her at the 2012 Grammys), but eventually picking up the iconic Mockingjay pin from the books and perfectly honoring the story we all know and love.

In case you somehow needed another reason to get excited for the March 23 opening of The Hunger Games...

Sources confirm that the first trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 will debut in front of Katniss, Peeta and company in theaters across the country. It's a move that makes perfect business sense, as Lionsgate (distributor of The Hunger Games) acquired Summit Entertainment last month.

Meanwhile, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 hits DVD and Blu-ray tonight at midnight. Are you in line yet?!?

The odds are apparently in our favor today, as Lionsgate has given us yet another awesome look at Jennifer Lawrence in the role of Katniss Everdeen.

Below, the actress graces the cover of the upcoming Hunger Games soundtrack, which is scheduled for a March 20 release, three days before movie lines around the country extend for blocks when this film actually opens.

Look for the CD to be comprised of tracks from "District 12 and Beyond," aka Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars, the Decembrists, and Arcade Fire, among other artists.

Following her debacle of a performance on Saturday Night Live, the music career of Lana Del Rey is at a standstill.

But that doesn't mean the song for which she's best known, "Video Games," is a complete waste, at least not when Second City comedian Holly Laurent takes it over, mashes it up with The Hunger Games trailer and creates one of our favorite parodies in months.

I don’t want Peeta to be dead/A pita is a pouch of bread/But that’s his name.

Truly amazing. Watch below:

With just over two months to go until the release of The Hunger Games, Lionsgate has released the final poster for this sure-to-be blockbuster.

It features Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and it's just as awesome as all other promotional material so far:

But while the excitement over The Hunger Games builds each day, and while its core audience may also be comprised of teenage girls, Josh Hutcherson recently spoke to E! News and stopped the comparisons to another franchise right then and there.

“I’m not a huge fan of the comparisons to Twilight just because I think it’s a very different world," the actor behind Peeta said. “I understand why people make the connection just because it’s a popular teen book... but the story is really more about Katniss and her survival. There’s definitely less romance.”
