A Mini Hunger Games Reunion at the 2015 SAG Awards

Natalie Dormer, Gwendoline Christie and Mahershala Ali

Last night, at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards, there were a few HG familiar faces amongst the crowd. Basically, a mini Hunger Games/Mockingjay Part 2 reunion!

The ever stylish and beautiful Lenny Kravitz (our Cinna) made his way into the SAG Awards looking totally dapper, as usual. Lenny was there to present the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Comedy to Orange is the New Black.

The beautiful Natalie Dormer (our Cressida), the handsome Mahershala Ali (our Boggs), and the gorgeous Mockingjay Part 2 newbie, Gwendoline Christie (Commander Lyme) were nominated with their respective ensemble casts (Game of Thrones and House of Cards). Their smiles show what a wonderful time they were having last night.

And congrats to Julianne Moore (our Coin) on her Screen Actors Guild Award win last night for #StillAlice ;)

Then when I found out I wasn’t, well, I already picked out this dress.

'Mockingjay Part 1' is Now the Top Grossing Film of 2014

We did it, tributes! According to Scott Mendelson at Forbes, as of last night, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is the top grossing film of 2014 in the United States, surpassing the $333.2 million earned by Guardians of the Galaxy

A couple of interesting stats to bear in mind: This makes 2014 the second year in a row where a Hunger Games film topped the domestic box office. It's also the second year in a row where a female-led film topped the domestic box office and makes Hunger Games the first franchise to top the domestic box office charts two years in a row.

And it was all done without the help of 3D and/or IMAX increased ticket prices!

Congrats to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, Lionsgate and the whole team involved! And thanks to YOU for getting out there to the theater!

Sam Claflin Talks 'Mockingjay Part 2' With Josh Horowitz

Josh Horowitz recently interviewed Sam Claflin while he was promoting Love, Rosie, and they touched on a bunch of subjects including a pivotal scene in Mockingjay Part 2.  Listen to the latest episode of Happy, Sad, Confused with Josh Horowitz.

Sam talks about Jennifer Lawrence and Woody Harrelson at about the 25:00 mark:

There are moments of both [freaking out and enjoying being with very famous actors]. I suppose walking into Jennifer Lawrence's apartment for the first time during Catching Fire and seeing Woody [Harrelson] wearing a ladies crop top, that I thought was HIS top. I thought, 'This looks about right for how I imagined Woody Harrelson to be, him with a tasseled crop top.' I thought, 'Yeah, that's totally normal, I think.' 

Sam talks about Liam Hemsworth and Woody (again) around the 32:00 mark. 

I literally LOVE Woody. I am in love with that man. He's the nicest, most gentle humanitarian you'll ever meet. He's just so cool."

On how life changed after being cast as Finnick Odair in Catching Fire:

I think now, moreso that ever, I do occasionally get noticed, or people give me a dirty look. I don't know if it's that I have that face that people want to punch, or that I look reasonably familiar. [Laughs] You look a bit like that guy. But, no, can't be, too ugly. It has definitely catapulted my career, in that sense. It's allowed me to walk into some bigger rooms and meet some bigger people. But at the same time I definitely feel like I live my life like I always have. I don't take anything for granted, I'm very appreciative to be in my position, and gracious. Yeah. I still feel very lucky to be here. I definitely think it's only a matter of time before people realize I can't act. [laughs] But long may it continue in the mean time. I'm going to make the most of it while I can! 

*SPOILER ALERT* Don't read further (or listen part the 34:00 mark on the audio) if you want to be spoiler free about Mockingjay Part 2!  

The quick bit about Mockingjay Part 2 is at about the 34:38 mark. Sam says of filming a certain VERY important scene in the film:

It was the worst day of filming I have ever done in my life. I think I actually got hooked up to oxygen tanks because I was so, uh, it was so… It’s awesome. I don’t wanna talk too much about it but it was a really hard day of work for me. Brutal. It was just me, y’know, all day. I don't want to talk too much about it because, obviously, it's not out yet. But I'd like to think this whole last segment, the ending, the conclusion to this franchise won't disappoint people. It's bigger, yeah, I'm VERY excited.
