The wait is nearly over for Hunger Games fans with the next installment hitting cinema screens on November 21st. The trailer has just landed to tantalise those taste buds.

Niamh Geaney reports.



Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth returned to filming yesterday for the first time since Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death at the weekend.

Jennifer looked sombre as she entered the set, having earlier expressed her sadness over her co-star’s sudden death, calling him “such an incredible actor”.

Hollywood waits for no man and the cast had to return to finish shooting the final installment of The Hunger Games, which will be split into two parts – Mockingjay Part 1 and 2.

Reports say Hoffman, who plays Plutarch, had only one scene left to shoot in the franchise and it appears to be an incredibly emotional and poignant scene for both his character and Jennifer’s Katniss.

While his death won’t affect release dates, a film exec has said some work will need to be done to cover up the missing scene.

However, that same exec assures fans they have a lot to look forward to in Hoffman’s scenes: “His performances in both [remaining] movies will be up to the best of his craft. We feel it will be a good tribute to him.”





A much loved and respected actor was lost this weekend and many of his fellow actors and public figures have been using social media outlets to voice their grief and dismay at losing Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Gwyneth Paltrow uploaded this cute picture of her laughing alongside Philip saying, “Philip was a true genius”.


Madonna took to her Instagram account to voice her grief, writing “Lost another genius! What a tragedy”.


Sir Ian McKellan’s touching tribute to the late actor featured an image of Philip and Natalie Portman shooting for the movie, The Seagull in 2001. McKellan talks about his regret at not meeting Hoffman when he came to see his play last month, saying; “Last month he came to our plays at the Cort Theatre. I wish, now more than ever, we had met afterwards, so I could have told him of my admiration”.




We are so shocked and saddened to hear that American actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has died.

The 46-year-old was found in his Manhattan apartment this morning. The cause of death has not yet been determined and New York Police Department is investigating.

Hoffman had a wonderfully diverse acting career and gave us many great performances. He received three Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominations for The Master, Doubt and Charlie Wilson’s War and also won the Best Actor award for his role in Capote.
