Jennifer Lawrence's Horrified Expression Upon Seeing Box-Office Projections for Her Next Non-Hunger Games Film
Afternoon, our tributes and victors. How was your weekend? Did you get a chance to see The Hunger Games? Thoughts? Whenever a female-led movie opens well, there’s invariably another round of talk about what it means for female-driven action pics. My take? It’ll go back to the same, at least until the next female-driven action film breaks waves again. Unfortunately, female action stars also have to deal with critiques of their bodies, as JLaw had to endure from The Hunger Games critics. (Mary Sue)
SPOILERS FOR NON BOOK READERS: Some have criticized The Hunger Games for not being multi-ethnic enough. This group of folks horribly, horribly swings the opposite way: “Call me racist but when I found out Rue was black her death wasn’t as sad.” Oh, jump up my ass, dude. (Sarka)
Let’s see if The Hunger Games can chip away at the male-centered Wrath of Titans this weekend. Speaking of which, Smashed Potato Sam Worthington was asked by our pal Mike Ryan which team he supported: Gale or Peeta. Ryan also does the unthinkable: Extracts some actual, self-deprecating personality from Worthington in the interview. (Moviefone)
The image above actually has nothing to do with The Hunger Games. It’s your first glimpse of JLaw in the forthcoming horror flick, House at the End of the Street. (Movieline)

More images from the set of CBS’s Sherlock Holmes series, “Elementary” have been released. Jonny Lee Miller still has a shitty scarf, plus he looks kind of homeless. YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG. (Den of Geek)
Did you know that, before making the game-changing film responsible for hiking up our ticket prices across the board, James Cameron attempted to direct the X-Men franchise? His Wolverine would’ve been Bob Hoskins. Woah. (I09)
Last week, Fox News Idiot, Geraldo Rivera, suggested that Trayvon Martin’s hoodie was just as responsible for his death as George Zimmerman. That’s right, folks. Racists with guns don’t kill people; hoodies do. Here are 75 Menacing Creatures terrifying mankind with their scary hoodies. (Uproxx)

I feel like Whedon’s Avengers has already nailed down its male demo. But just in case, they released this still image from the film. (Via GammaSquad)
Great news, buttsexers! Butt plugs now come in grenade shapes for that explosive anal action you’ve always dreamed out. Or something. I don’t even know what butt plugs are used for. Are they used to keep something in? (Copyranter)
I don’t think butt plugs have anything to do with being bone collector’ed. In fact, I have no idea what bone collector’ed means. But, here’s 10 ways to avoid it. (Video Gum)
Cindy mentioned yesterday that FX was turning the Coen Brothers’ Fargo into a television series, and today I did a little dream casting. This cast CANNOT be beaten. (WarmingGlow)

Eric Roberts, who is actually IN The Dark Knight Rises, doesn’t feel that Nolan’s trilogy “educates, enlightens, moves, or comforts.” In other news: Eric Roberts is still a douche. (The Playlist)
Finally, season five of “Mad Men” premiered last night. Sunday nights are a clusterf*ck of great television, and it’s only going to get worse with the addition of “Game of Thrones” this Sunday. So, to ensure you have time to catch up, Sarah will be analyzing episodes on Tuesday, and TK will do the same with “GoT” starting next week. In the meantime, you can see a collection of “Mad Men” GIFs (including the best from last night), check out The Tao of Draper, or you can settle in an watch this inspired “Mad Men” intro featuring President Obama.
Can that be topped? Perhaps. Here’s a collection of horribly inappropriate “Mad Men” intros.
