FIRST LOOK: Julianne Moore Is President Coin in 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'

A big name coming on board the next installment of the "Hunger Games" franchise is Julianne Moore, playing President Alma Coin. Lionsgate has released a couple of first images of Moore, here forgoing her usual red locks for something a bit more Jane Campion-like. One of the images has her seated next to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, who plays Plutarch Heavensby. Take a look, below.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Cut Graphic Porn from Directorial Debut 'Don Jon' to Get R Rating

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's feature directorial debut "Don Jon" -- the film formerly known as "Don Jon's Addiction" -- whipped up a stir at Sundance with its graphic depiction of porn addiction in New Jersey. "The Sundance cut was us pushing it past where it really ought to be, and I think it was sort of distracting for audiences," Gordon-Levitt said at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

English Teacher Starts in NY, Lily Collins joins Julianne Moore, Greg Kinnear, Nathan Lane

One of the recurring themes of this weekend's Film Independent Forum was the growing fluidity of television and indie film. For example, TV director Craig Zisk (The Big C, Nurse Jackie, Weeds) is making his film debut with indie comedy The English Teacher, which starts filming in New York this week. He has just added Snow White star Lily Collins to his cast, which includes Julianne Moore, Greg Kinnear and Nathan Lane. As indie film remains a labor of love for most participants, it makes sense to work for hire in quick-form television, and return intermittently to longer form indie production.

Cowboys & Aliens, Crazy, Stupid, Love & Indies The Future, The Guard, Interrupters, Life in a Day

Cowboys & Aliens, Crazy, Stupid, Love & Indies The Future, The Guard, Interrupters, Life in a Day
Cowboys & Aliens gets the prize for most literal title, if nothing else. While Andrew O'Hehir writes: "The movie never makes much of a case for its own existence; it's a mediocre western clumsily welded to a mediocre alien shoot-'em-up," and Roger Moore concludes: "A perfectly serviceable B-movie in the modern mold -- lots of money, lots of stars, lots of explosions and lots of credited screenwriters," TOH!'s review was somewhere in the middle, considering both the good (Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig), the bad (Olivia Wilde) and the ugly (the aliens).

Crazy, Stupid, Love Reviews: Refreshingly Upscale, Contrived, Genial Messy Comedy, Real Actors

Each time a studio presents a new romantic comedy I face it with dread, unless Judd Apatow is involved. He works hard at finding some grain of truth about how men and women relate to each other. (Check out this candid KCRW podcast interview.) I'm allergic to fake studio gloss, and was surprised by the skill applied to Crazy, Stupid, Love (July 29), which could easily have gone south--the degree of difficulty was high. The top-flight cast delivers on this one.

Trailer Watch: Is Crazy, Stupid, Love Gosling's Crazy, Stupid Sellout?

We hope Ryan Gosling isn't selling out. But judging from this trailer, it looks like he has abandoned his usual dark indie depths for pretty-boy womanizing. The pairing of Gosling and Steve Carell and co-stars Julianne Moore and Emma Stone may in fact be the best-looking rom-com since...a really long time ago. The film, from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (I Love You, Phillip Morris, Bad Santa), comes out July 29.

She went on to work for future husband Warren Beatty on Bugsy and Love Affair, and had three Oscar-nominated roles, in Stephen Frears' The Grifters, Sam Mendes' American Beauty and Istvan Szabo's Being Julia before landing a fourth for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right.
