Jennifer Lawrence's New Pixie Cut Gives Hunger Games: Catching Fire Director Shame! Learn Why HERE!

Hunger Games: Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence says he feels bad about Jennifer Lawrence's haircut -- but why???

Jennifer Lawrence chopped off the majority of her hair just in time for her promotional tour of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, so of course that's all anyone can talk about!

While Jenn has already explained how one reason behind the cut was her super damaged hair, Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence is now taking full credit/blame for the truncated locks.

He explained:

Catching Fire Director Quarter Quells Rumors That There Will Be Shaky Cam In Movie!

Filed under: Film FlickersHunger GamesComic-Con

Sure, Star Trek had lens flare, and Hunger Games had shaky cam, but when it comes to Catching Fire, director Francis Lawrence (Jeez, the Lawrence clan is owning Hunger Games right now!) has made it clear that there will be no cause for rebellion.

In a recent interview at Comic-Con, Francis was asked about the usage of the motion sickness-inducing shaky cam in the upcoming sequel. Here's what he had to say:

“I did something different. That kind of style of camera work is not my thing. I like to be intimate with people but I also like to have a sense of place, so I shoot with different kinds of lenses and different kinds of different lighting. I think the look of the movie is very different from the first one. The costumes are a little different, the look and the light is a little different, the visual effects are different, and I think the set pieces, the action are pretty spectacular."

PHEW! Seriously, shaky cam can make someone dizzier than a tracker jacker sting! We want watching the cruel tournament to the death to make us feel nauseous, not the camera work!

It's good to hear that Francis seems to know how to work his machine of choice like the technically savvy Bee Tee!

Ch-ch-check out the interview with the director and other stars of Catching Fire…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Get ready, Tributes!

What a GLORIOUS, wonderful day it's turned out to be!

Toward the end of 2012, we were absolutely THRILLED to observe photos from the Hawaiian set of Catching Fire, the much-anticipated follow-up to last year's Hunger Games, featuring series stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson filming on the beach alongside some new castmembers…including the deliciously sexy Sam Claflin, who won the role of the Adonis-esque tournament alum Finnick Odair!

Well, if the paparazzi photos of the actor diving into the waters in nothing but a wetsuit that hugged in body in all the right places weren't enough to satiate your palette, Entertainment Weekly has gone one step further by premiering the FIRST OFFICIAL PRODUCTION PHOTOS from the flick, showcasing Jen alongside her new mysterious ally!

Ch-ch-check 'em out (above)!

Hmm! We know how the story goes, but we're seriously starting to ship Finnick & Katniss right now! Look at how he holds that trident! Yummy!

Hunger Games Finale Finds Director; Doesn't Look Very Far!

Hunger Games Finale Finds Director

It took the producers of The Hunger Games series a long time to find a director for Catching Fire.

And it seems now that they have him, they don't plan on letting him go!

Francis Lawrence, no relation to star Jennifer Lawrence, is best known for directing I Am Legend and a myriad of music videos for the likes of Aerosmith, Jennifer Lopez, and P!nk.

But that is sure to change once he gets finished directing not one, not two, but three Hunger Games films, as he has been signed on to complete the franchise!

The best news about this? If Mr. Lawrence is getting attached to the Mockingjay already, producers must REALLY like what he's doing so far!

You don't ask someone to go steady unless you know they'll treat you right! We're more stoked than ever for Fire now!

Who else thinks Francis Lawrence was chosen for his last name??

Ha! We're totally JAY-KAY!! But still… it's pretty ironic, no?

Jennifer Lawrence went down to breezy Santa Monica on Monday to meet up with the her Catching Fire director. And doesn't she just look ready to TALK BIZ!?!

But knowing her goofy self, she probably went to the Pier after all that Hunger Games chit-chat and rode the ferris wheel a few times. Ha!
