Now that Katniss and Peeta, from district 12, have participated in the Hunger Games and emerged victorious, they are expected to embark on a victory tour. Before the tour began, President Snow visited Katniss to let her know that he was unhappy that she broke the rules of the Hunger Games, causing Peeta to be Victor as well, as only one is allowed to survive.
Their first stop is District 11, home of Katniss's ally and friend, Rue, who died during the Hunger Games. Throughout the duration of the tour, Katniss is proposed to by Peeta in public, while the other districts are planning a revolt against the Capitol. During their visit to District 8, Katniss meets two runaways who tells her that District 13 still exists.
Later on, Katniss and Peeta, learn that the 75th annual Hunger Games is the Quarter Quell, which means that this is a Special Edition, where there is some sort of twist that makes the Games more difficult to participate in. This time the victors of the previous games are the tributes. Which means that because District 12 has only three living victors, and two are men, Katniss is going back into the arena.
After tonight, you're going to have a lot of candy to eat while you watch stuff on TV. Luckily, Netflix is adding some pretty great stuff in November!

Details are emerging surrounding the tragic and senseless death of celebrity Phillip Seymour Hoffman... and they suggest a much larger addiction than anyone had realized. Hoffman was found, clad in boxers and a t-shirt, dead in his apartment bathroom on Sunday, a needle still in his arm. He was discovered by friend, screenwriter David Katz, and his personal assistant Isabella Wing-Davey, after Hoffman's estranged long-time girlfriend (previously, we mistakenly referred to Mimi O'Donnell as his wife) asked them to check on Hoffman.
If you've ever wondered how Jennifer Lawrence achieves that special blend of charm and quirky awkwardness, it might be because she's drunk. The star of "The Hunger Games" reportedly revealed to Seth Myers in an upcoming interview that she got more than a little tipsy at the Oscars. According to the report, Lawrence admitted to Myers that she was drunk at the ceremony and got even drunker at the afterparty. Apparently she was so drunk that she puked on the steps at Madonna's party.
In unexpected and terrible news, Yidio is sad to announce that Academy Award-winning actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman has passed away. Hoffman, 46, was found dead in the bathroom of his fourth-floor Manhattan apartment on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. A 911 emergency call from a friend tipped off police. The friend was apparently concerned that they were unable to reach Hoffman. Police officials on the scene say it's "pretty apparent that it was an overdose. The syringe was in his arm," with an envelope of what appears to be heroin nearby.
Jennifer Lawrence can do no wrong in the eyes of the Internet. But that doesn't mean the Internet won't make fun of her dress. JLaw wore a white Dior gown to last night's Golden Globes, and the unique design of the dress immediately sparked debate among fashion bloggers. Was that electrical tape tied around the middle of the gown? What was going on there? Before long, the two-time Golden Globe winner (including one last night for her performance in "American Hustle") was the subject of a brand-new meme: "Lawrencing.
The holiday movie season officially kicks off this weekend, and two new wide releases are ready to get the holiday ball rolling. One of them is a heart-warming comedy, and the other is a big-budget franchise sequel that will, without doubt, dominate the box office from the minute it opens. The inevitable winner this weekend is, of course, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," the sequel to last year's "The Hunger Games." Since the first film's debut, the franchise's star, Jennifer Lawrence, has become Hollywood's darling, winning an Oscar for "Silver Linings Playbook" and scoring countless positive headlines.
The holiday weekend was an ideal time to catch a movie, and a great number of Americans did just that, giving "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" a second lucrative weekend in a row and turning one new release into a hit as well. After taking in more than $158 million in its opening weekend, "Catching Fire" dropped off by about half this weekend but still managed to take in $74.5 million over the holiday. The movie benefitted from strong word-of-mouth that kept it going strong after its opening, and if estimates of its weekend gross hold, its total domestic gross after two weekends will be very close to $300 million.
