Not just anyone can be there to (emotionally) protect Katniss inside the arena. It takes a real sensitive man, like Josh Hutcherson. On the latest episode of After Hours, the "Hunger Games" star shows Josh Horowitz a thing or two about getting in touch with his sensitive side.

You know how we can tell that Hutcherson is really sensitive? After filming this segment, he just sat there and cried for hours. Hours! He may still be in the studio right now. We've been too afraid to knock.

Are you as sensitive as Josh Hutcherson? (You're probably not.) If you think so, let us know in the comments below and on Twitter!

Hutcherson

By Hannah Soo Park

From The Capitol…to Colombia? Josh Hutcherson is still busy filming "Catching Fire," the much-anticipated second installment in the "Hunger Games" series, but he's already looking to line up his next acting gig.

Deadline reports that the "The Hunger Games" star is in talks to join Benicio Del Toro in "Paradise Lost," a based-on-a-true-story film that follows notorious Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. Hutcherson will play a young Irish surfer, Nick, who visits his older brother in Colombia, where he ends up falling in love with a girl named Maria. Sounds pretty straight forward, right? But she's not just any girl—it turns out that her uncle is Del Toro's Escobar. And that's where we start thinking this one won't end well.

Ever since "The Dark Knight," feature films have embraced the IMAX format more and more, incorporating the larger picture into the actual filmmaking process. One new twist on IMAX comes courtesy of Josh Hutcherson, who stopped by MTV News to give us the scoop on just how the bigger picture will play into "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

IMAX played a large part in the box office success of the first installment in "The Hunger Games," and for the second ago around, director Francis Lawrence will film some specific sequences for the format instead of just an up-conversion.

A marriage proposal is a big part of any man's life, but there's even more pressure when you're the beloved champion of District 12 and you're hopeful bride-to-be is your co-champ.

Josh Hutcherson felt that pressure when popping the question to Jennifer Lawrence on the set of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." When he stopped by MTV News last weekend, he recalled a small mishap that sounds pretty embarrassing.

Josh Hutcherson has had a big year. The one-time "Bridge to Terabithia" actor starred in another major adaptation, "The Hunger Games," and became a household name thanks to his portrayal of Peeta Mellark in the box office hit. When MTV News caught up with Hutcherson recently to talk about all the things he's had to be thankful for in 2012, the actor admitted that he knows how lucky he is.

"I'm very thankful [for 2012] as well," Hutcherson said. "I had a lot of work that came out this year and was pretty successful thus far, so it was exciting for me. It definitely exceeded my expectations."

The preview gives us a look at a happy small Colorado town…before the North Koreans invade, that is. The remake of "Red Dawn" stars Chris Hemsworth, Adrianne Palicki, and Josh Hutcherson as a band of teenagers who escape into the woods and mount a guerilla-style resistance to the new invaders.

Head over to io9 to check out the first eight minutes of "Red Dawn."

Red Dawn

At the very least, the first trailer for the "Red Dawn" remake is a magical trip back to 2009.

Thanks to MGM's bankruptcy, the nearly three-year-old retelling of a Chinese North Korean invasion of the United States is finally getting a release. The film hits this Thanksgiving, but today Yahoo! Movies dropped the first trailer for "Red Dawn," starring Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, and Adrianne Palicki.

Red Dawn Banner

By Ryan Gowland

Back in September of 2009, the remake of "Red Dawn" started production in Michigan under the direction of first-time helmer Dan Bradley, who had worked as a stunt coordinator and second unit director on three "Bourne" movies, including the upcoming "Bourne Legacy."

The cast was filled with relative unknowns, including Australian actor Chris Hemsworth as the lead, alongside Josh Hutcherson, the most well known of the cast having just appeared in "Journey to the Center of Earth" following performances in "Zathura" and "RV." Expected to arrive in 2010, "Red Dawn" took an unexpected detour which has finally come to an end.

Red Dawn

If Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson look a few years younger in these new stills from the upcoming "Red Dawn" remake, that's because the movie has been "upcoming" for about three years now.

The much delayed film about a foreign invasion on U.S. soil will finally see the light of day in November, and stars younger versions of Hemsworth, Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

It's probably been a little while since your last Josh Hutcherson fix, but lucky for you, there's "Detention," which comes out today on Blu-ray and DVD. In this clip from the movie, you can get a look at Hutcherson talking about life after graduating, dating, and the slasher movie killer wreaking havoc on the student body, Cinderhella—all normal high school topics—with Shanley Caswell while riding together on a skateboard.

The horror-comedy flick, which premiered at SXSW in 2011 and hit theaters last April, follows a group of high school seniors through their last days of school as they deal with final exams, prom, detention, and the aforementioned serial killer. From the context of the clip (and the trailer), we'd say Hutcherson and Caswell haven't found themselves locked in detention—from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the day of prom, when the killer is probably going to strike—just yet.

To find out what happens and who survives, check out "Detention" on Blu-Ray and DVD today.
