We're still a year away from "The Hunger Games," but you can get your first look at Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen today.
Entertainment Weekly has released the first official picture of Lawrence in character as Katniss for the Gary Ross-directed adaptation. In an interview, the Oscar-nominated actress tells EW why she sympathizes with the bow-wielding heroine: "She was a girl who’s all of a sudden being introduced to fame. I know what that feels like to have all this flurry around you and feel like, 'Oh, no, I don't belong here.'"

Kevin James got love advice from Will Smith in "Hitch," and that worked out pretty well for the guy. Let's see how he does when lions and gorillas are the ones playing matchmaker.
Yahoo Movies has premiered the full-length trailer for "Zookeeper," the former "King of Queens" comedian's latest movie. James stars as a zookeeper who contemplates leaving his job to pursue a more socially accepted path and, hopefully as a result, the girl of his dreams. But when the zoo's animals reveal that they can talk, they implore their favorite zookeeper to stay exactly where he is — and better still, they'll help him win his dream girl.

The biggest news to come out of Cannes today concerns our future: specifically, the post apocalyptic "Terminator" series is going indie.
Or, at least it's been purchased by "indie savior" Megan Ellison, who Deadline is estimating spent around $20 million to acquire the rights to the "Terminator" franchise. Considering that Ellison's Annapruna Films is behind Kathryn Bigelow's "Kill Bin Laden" and Paul T. Anderson's next picture, her involvement is nothing but good news for the developing "Terminator" sequel.
In the news after the jump, "Dark Shadows" gets a release date, a major star stays on board for "Rock of Ages" and the first shot of Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's "Looper" hits the web.

"Fast Five" is a lot of things: it's fast, it's furious and it's… Oscar worthy?
Vin Diesel certainly seems to think so, at least. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the "Fast Five" star said he "wouldn't be surprised if there is some Oscar talk around" the latest "Furious" film. "Sooner or later, people are gonna say, 'Wait a minute, just because they are for the working class doesn't mean they're not great.'" That's Vin's take, but what do you think? Is "Fast Five" deserving of an Oscar, or is it just a straight-up crowd pleaser?
