Is Elizabeth Banks Team Peeta Or Team Gale?

The gorgeous and talented Elizabeth Banks, who plays Effie Trinket in "The Hunger Games," is Team Peeta!

"I am a Peeta lover, but I hate to have to choose!” she told Access Hollywood at the junket for her new movie "Our Idiot Brother."

“But in the books, I’m a Peeta lover, because he’s a lover, not a fighter,” she explained.

We here at Team Peeta couldn't agree with you more, Elizabeth!

She went on to say, "Any time you can make a very entertaining movie, and also get people leaving the theater thinking and scratching their heads and really taking something away from it – that’s why we do this job. So, it’s really exciting to be making ‘The Hunger Games’ because there’s a lot going on in that movie, but it’s also just highly, highly entertaining."

Is anyone really Team Gale?

Lionsgate Confirms Date Of 'Catching Fire'!

Lionsgate has issued a statement officially releasing the date of the second movie in "The Hunger Games" trilogy - "Catching Fire"!

<Insert Team Peeta happy dance here!>

According to the official press release, "Catching Fire" will be released on November 22, 2013.  Mark your calendars!>

According to the release:
The announcement was made by Joe Drake, co-COO of Lionsgate and President of its Motion Picture Group.  No further details about CATCHING FIRE have been confirmed at this stage.
Said Drake of the date, “The magical thing about the Hunger Games trilogy is that the books have such a vastly broad appeal.  The stories truly offer something for everyone, and the period around the Thanksgiving weekend is such an opportunity for families and friends to make an event of going to the movies.” 
Will you see "Catching Fire" no matter what, or are you waiting to decide after you see "Hunger Games"?

Steven Soderbergh Pitching In On 'Hunger Games'

It's true - the movie genius, Steven Soderbergh is lending a hand to 'The Hunger Games'!

EW reports that he is pitching in as second unit director on the set!
“It’s true he’s shooting two days of second unit,” says director Gary Ross, who’s at the helm of the adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ dystopian best-seller. “He’s one of my best friends and we all help each other a little bit on these things.” Soderbergh was a producer of Ross’ 1998 film Pleasantville. 
Gary Ross also gave EW an update on the filming.  Looks like they've moved on to shooting the Capitol scenes!
“We’ve already done a lot of action-y stuff,” says Ross. “We’ve burned down a forest, we’ve had the fire sequence, we blew up this pyramid of stuff that went 150 feet up in the air, and we had suitcases flying over a quarter of a mile.” While Ross says the high-octane action has been a thrill, he remains most turned on by the story’s emotional core. “I think it’s the power of Jennifer’s acting that’s the most moving to me,” he says. “That’s the stuff that knocks me out.”

New 'Hunger Games' Stills!

Thanks to Just Jared for posting these gems.  We look the like of Peeta all muddied up! :)

Peeta Mellark Quotes

These quotes are enough to make anyone's heart melt.

"Well there is this one girl. I've had a crush on since I can remember. But I'm pretty sure she didn't know I was alive till the reaping." - Peeta Mellark, The Hunger Games

Yup, Team Peeta all the way.

Here's some more classic Peeta quotes. Although be WARNED, there are some spoilers from book 2 and 3. (And off to read book 1... again.)

Woody Harrelson & Lenny Kravitz Arrive In NC For Filming

Oh, it's on like Donkey Kong!

Lenny and Woody have arrived in North Carolina to film their scenes in "The Hunger Games." <Team Peeta is kicking our heels in the air at this very moment.>

The wonderful Ross Bowen Tweeted, "Lenny Kravitz spotted twice in Charlotte over the weekend" and later also wrote, "#hungergames scenes w/ Kravtiz and Harrelson Hutcherson and Lawrence." (sic)

While we love Lenny as Cinna, we CANNOT wait to see what Woody will bring to the role of Haymitch. We think we could really love to hate him. What do you think?

Miley Cyrus Is On The Other Side

Miley is clearly NOT Team Peeta. I guess it’s only to be expected, since her on-again, off-again man is Gale.

Miley was Tweeted by a fan, “Obsessed with The Hunger Games,” to which she replied, “Gale is pretty sexy.”

According to this site, she is excited about the movie, and can’t wait to lend her support to her leading man:
When the film comes out, you can expect Miley to fully support her guy, and she may even attend the première alongside him! While she doesn't really hide her relationship, she definitely keeps that part of her life private, so this "Liam call-out" was appreciated by her fans—as evident by the 100+ retweets it received!
