ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRETHE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (played by Josh Hutcherson). Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever. THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE is directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has sold over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
In a surprise announcement today, Lionsgate divulged a new commercial partner for The Hunger Games franchise: COVERGIRL cosmetics. The cosmetic line was used exclusively onset of the second film in the series, Catching Fire, and it appears that relationship has grown into a new line of COVERGIRL cosmetics based on the Capitol fashion scene:
“With The Hunger Games: Catching Fire partnership, we wanted to redefine cosmetics’ relationship to film with a fantasy-meets-reality beauty experience,” said Esi Eggleston Bracey, VP and General Manager, Global P&G Cosmetics. “The film inspired COVERGIRL campaign coming out this fall truly will bring beauty transformation to life in an aspirational, dramatic fashion. All of us at COVERGIRL were captivated by Suzanne Collins’ novels and the first film, so we’re thrilled to collaborate with Lionsgate on such a bold beauty partnership with the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
“We are excited to announce COVERGIRL as the exclusive makeup partner for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” said Paula Kupfer, Lionsgate’s Vice President of Promotions and Consumer Products. “The exquisite beauty and style in the world of the Capitol is a focal point of this film. Partnering with an innovative brand like COVERGIRL to create an additional layer of beauty storytelling and inspiration for the fans is new territory that we’re delighted to explore.”
This isn’t the first time that Lionsgate has teamed up with the beauty market. Fans will remember last year’s partnership with China Glaze to produce a line of nail polishes based loosely on the twelve districts of Panem.

The Silver Linings Playbook Blu-ray and DVD hit store shelves on April 30. The home release includes additional footage not seen in theaters, including an alternate ending. MTV News has the alternate ending on their site, if you haven’t taken a copy of the movie home.
The alternate cut would have ended the film on a slightly different tone, but the spirit is maintained while taking a closer look at how the characters settled back into their lives after the main events of the story.
Check out the alternate ending below, and obviously, this is a spoiler alert if you haven’t seen the film yet.
