Josh Hutcherson kept 'The Hunger Games' references to a minimum during his 'SNL' hosting stint last night (Nov. 23). In fact, his opening monologue was pretty much the major moment in which the film was referenced. But it was done so in epic fashion, with the cast re-enacting the plot.
Josh Hutcherson hosted 'SNL' last night (Nov. 23) to coincide with this weekend's release of 'Catching Fire,' the latest installment of the blockbuster 'The Hunger Games' franchise. The young actor's very best skit was one set in the '80s, where big-haired bangs ruled and texting didn't exist, but was somehow referenced. His character also spoke only in song clips.
In 2012, 'The Hunger Games' was not only critically acclaimed; it was also the third highest grossing blockbuster of the year, coming in behind 'The Avengers' and 'The Dark Knight Rises.' This meant Francis Lawrence, who took over directing duties for the film series after Gary Ross bowed out, has an incredibly high bar to meet with the adaptation of Suzanne Collins' second novel in her trilogy, 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.' We're elated to report that he's created a sequel that is bigger, bolder and all around better than its solid predecessor, helped in part by an extraordinary cast and a lusher budget.
'Sesame Street' isn't just for kids anymore. The world-famous children's puppet show has recently spoofed everything from 'Breaking Bad' to 'Mad Men,' and now, it tackles 'The Hunger Games' in a parody entitled 'The Hungry Games: Catching Fur.'
