We don’t envy makers of techno thrillers. Go too tech-savvy and you lose most people who don’t know anything about technology except that the best way to fix their gadgets is to turn them off and then back on again (guilty). Go too simplistic and there’s no real hook to your story beyond the pretty people and a heart-pounding score. Either extreme also carries the pitfall of being laughed at in a decade or even just a few years. Remember “The Net”? All that said, the bland, boring “Paranoia” does little to distinguish itself and isn’t good (or even enjoyably bad enough) to be passable even as Saturday afternoon cable fodder. And we say this as people who will sit through “Deep Blue Sea” every time it's on.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
While the summer blockbuster season comes to a close in a few short weeks (thank God), for those who you like your popcorn coupled with CGI effects and action, don't worry, as Hollywood will keep catering to you until the end of the year. While the past couple years saw the "Twilight" crowd dominate the fall frame with the vampire romance epics, with that series over, it's time for a new YA title to carry torch. And that responsibility has fallen to Jennifer Lawrence and those in her district with the sequel, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

First, some background: back in 2011, director Dito Montiel hit Sundance with his Al Pacino and Channing Tatum starring cop flick "The Son Of No One," that depending on who you ask, was so bad it prompted a sea of walkouts or had a botched screening thanks to a projectionist error. Either way, the movie was not well received at Park City or otherwise, and so Montiel dusted himself off, and made another cop movie with Dwayne Johnson and Liam Hemsworth. No brainer to work right? Um, not so fast...

On the one hand, the chance to watch Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford chew scenery and growl at each other is one that shouldn't be passed up. But man, is sitting through "Paranoia" going to be worth it?

Even if we wouldn't say he's quite cracked it yet, we've got a lot of respect for the way that Zac Efron is trying to establish himself as a proper grown-up adult actor. After all, the "High School Musical" series would be an albatross for many, but Efron's quietly been banging out a diverse mix of parts, and while things like "The Paperboy" and "At Any Price" haven't quite paid off yet, he's heading in the right direction. The actor's got several promising projects in the can already, including rom-com "Are We Officially Dating?," JFK ensemble drama "Parkland" and Seth Rogen/Nick Stoller comedy "Townies," and now, hot on the back of signing on to Eran Creevy's "Autobahn," the actor's just lined up thriller "Narc." Sounding a bit like a laugh-free "21 Jump Street," the project's being described as a based-in-fact, college-set version of "Donnie Brasco," and will see the actor play a fratboy who's busted for cocaine possession, and who agrees to become an informant to avoid jail time. The film's set up at Fox

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
And the night of non-stop teasers and clips ends with the grandaddy and most substantial of them all: "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." And even though it doesn't open for another seven months, Lionsgate clearly feels like they have a big winner on their hands...

So, this project has nothing to do with that largely unsuccessful John Cusack thriller of last year, nor anything to do with Edgar Allen Poe at all, to the best of our knowledge. It’s nothing to do with the Roger Corman movie or the Henri-Georges Clouzot one, nor is it based on the popular Disney Channel show “That’s So Raven,” and it’s got nothing to do with any Baltimore-based football player. So just what is “The Raven”? Because it’s about to sign up the second most in-demand Hemsworth as its lead.

When we last saw Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), they had survived the perilous "The Hunger Games" and now they're on a victory lap tour or some such thing. Surely things aren't gonna stay that celebratory and happy in the "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" sequel for long. In fact, in the adaptation of Suzanne Collins' YA novels, Katniss and Peta are dethroned from their respective victory riches and put back into the arena for the most climatic and menacing of the Hunger Games, known as the "Quarter Quell" (whatever) that means. Directed by Francis Lawrence (using IMAX cameras in some segments), a new teasing teaser trailer (which, let's face it, shows next to nothing) has arrived.

The hunt will begin soon. Everyone's favorite humans-killing-each-other-for-sport franchise returns to the big screen (much) later this year, but that hasn't stopped the folks at Lionsgate from reminding you that it's coming. The marketing machine for "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" continues today with a couple more bits and pieces.
