Liam Hemsworth reprises His Role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 opens in PH theater today!

Blazing at cinemas nationwide this November 20 in the Philippines, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” Liam Hemsworth reprises his role as Gale Hawthorne who finds himself at the tipping point in the latest instalment following the events that transpired in “Catching Fire.”

In “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” from the moment Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) wakes up in District 13, Gale is there – one of her only touchstones to the world she left behind. But he, too, is no longer the same. A hero who saved hundreds during the destruction of their home in District 2, he is now becoming a dedicated soldier in the rebellion and yet his heart is as unsettled by Katniss as ever.

 

Returning in the role is Liam Hemsworth, who says that in the wake of Catching Fire events, “He’s had enough as far as The Capitol’s abuse goes, so he’s not scared to stand up to it. He feels ready to go to war, in spite of the costs, to try to take down The Capitol. He sees the biggest part of his job as being the one to give Katniss the support and courage to become the Mockingjay. He’s now kind of her right-hand man.”

Gale becomes a driving force behind Katniss consenting to appear in the propos films for District 13. “He knows that they have to spread the word that the Mockingjay is alive and that only she can bring people together to stand up to The Capitol,” Hemsworth explains. At the same time, he notes that there is a distance between them. “Gale and Katniss have known each other their whole lives and have a lot of love for each other . . . but the difference between them is that Gale now sees anyone who has anything to do with the Capitol as guilty. Katniss doesn’t have those blinders.”

Hemsworth couldn’t wait to work with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson again. “You couldn’t ask for better people to work with. Jen & Josh are both amazingly talented and working with them is a blessing and so much fun. We’ve now all known each other for a few years and together we’ve experienced a lot of pivotal points in our lives.”

He also found great enjoyment in working with Francis Lawrence on the nuances of Gale’s development over time and his increasingly complicated feelings for Katniss. “Francis is the consummate director. He is great at all the big action stuff as well as working intimately with actors. He is one of the most well-prepared directors I’ve had the good fortune of working with. He knows the ins and outs of the story and everyone’s character. When you ask him a question, he knows the answer. He’s always willing to listen and collaborate with you on your input and ideas.”

Liam Hemsworth has a quiet intensity that transcends the big screen. Demonstrating versatility and skill in a range of performances, Hemsworth has proven to be one of the most sought after actors of his generation. Born in Melbourne, Australia, Hemsworth grew up surfing on Phillip Island. Hemsworth quickly landed his first big acting job on Australia’s popular TV series Home and Away and from there went on to book a role on Australia’s most successful TV show “Neighbors.”

Landing his first film role in the feature film “Triangle,” Hemsworth discovered that his true passion was in making movies. “It’s something new and fresh and it’s just a different energy to what I’d worked on before, says Hemsworth. Hemsworth soon began to gain attention throughout Hollywood and, while living with his brother Chris in their manager Will Ward’s guest cottage, Liam beat out hundreds of actors for the part of ‘Will Blakelee’ in the film adaptation of Nicholas Spark’s “The Last Song,” co-starring Greg Kinnear and Miley Cyrus. Hemsworth then went onto star in two of 2012’s biggest box office hits—“The Hunger Games,” directed by Gary Ross, and “Expendables 2,” directed by Simon West. Last year, he starred opposite Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman in the high stakes thriller “Paranoia,” directed by Robert Luketic and Empire State, directed by Dito Montiel and co-starring Dwayne Johnson and Emma Roberts. He also reprised his role as Gale Hawthorne in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” directed by Francis Lawrence.

Hemsworth eagerly looks forward to more film work with quality actors and directors. He says, “I love acting and I love movies. At the moment, I’m just trying to find people who are doing something different and meet people who are as passionate as I am. I have learned the majority of what I know on set, working. You learn from watching people with experience.”

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 “ opens in theatres on November 20, Thursday from Pioneer Films.

Why Liam Hemsworth skipped VMAs!

Why Liam Hemsworth skipped VMAs!

Liam

The “We Can’t Stop” singer, Miley Cyrus performed at the MTV Video Music Awards, shaking her booty and twerked against Robin Thicke who joined her onstage for a duet of his single Blurred Lines. But why her fiance 23 years-old Liam Hemsworth is not there cheering her on for one of the biggest performances of her career?

It turns out Liam was never supposed to go to the VMAs. Liam is known for keeping a low profile, actually knew her performance was going to be over-the-top and that’s why he and Miley jointly decided he not attend.

According to the insider.

“Miley knew her performance was going to be outside his comfort zone and she didn’t want to be worrying about him in the audience and how he was going to react. The whole thing was just another day of work for her, she wants her album to be number one and that means promoting the hell out of it.”

On Liam’s conservative parents feel about her performance.

“Liam’s family is very conservative, so she knows they won’t approve of her performance. But she had to make a decision when she started all of this, is she going to shape her career to please Liam and his family? Or is she going to be the artist she wants to be?”

“She loves Liam and she wants to make him happy but it does seem pretty clear that her own career is the most important thing to her right now and what’s wrong with that? Liam is putting his career first, no one is expecting Liam to pick his movie roles based on what will make Miley and her family happy. So why should she base her career on what will make him and his family happy? It’s not something she can worry about or it will drive her crazy.”

According to the report Miley has been the main one putting in the effort into their relationship.

“It’s Miley that’s been putting in most of the effort to keep them together, but Liam does love her. It’s hard to tell if he’s madly in love with her because he’s not the type of guy that does the big romantic stuff but he is there for her when she needs him, so that says a lot.”

The long standing rumor that the two have split-up since the couple has not been seen together for a long time. And some sightings of Miley not wearing her engagement ring, she even shoots down the rumor and she even went out of the way in confirming that the engagement was still on.

It was even rumored the Liam’s brothers Luke and Chris Hemsworth were trying desperately to stage an intervention!

According to the source:

“They wanted him to end the romance for good. Liam’s brother’s had heart-to-hearts with him because they were worried. Each time, he was more receptive. His brothers told him, ‘You’re miserable and we hate that.’ They were tired of Liam being hurt by Miley.”

Does this means that the intervention of his brothers worked?

Explosive Revelations as Excitement Brews for The Expendables 2!

“The cast that we’ve pulled together is phenomenal, and without exception,The Expendables 2 is the biggest action-adventure that I’ve ever been involved with,” Sylvester Stallone says, elevating the excitement for the sequel to the 2010 mega-hit.

Add the legendary Chuck Norris, “The Muscles from Brussels” Jean-Claude Van Damme, and hot newbie Liam Hemsworth to the original powerhouse cast of Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Bruce Willis and you’d get an action fanatic’s dream movie.

Barney Ross (Stallone), Lee Christmas (Statham), Yin Yang (Li), Gunnar Jensen (Lundgren), Toll Road (Couture) and Hale Caesar (Crews) – with newest members Billy the Kid (Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard – are reunited when Mr. Church (Willis) gets their services for a seemingly easy job. But when one of them gets killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge. In a hostile territory where the odds are against them, and a massive amount of weapons-grade plutonium threatens the balance of power in the world, the crew fights together with some unexpected reinforcements (Schwarzenegger and Norris). And Barney finds himself an opponent (Van Damme) who will stop at nothing to bring him down.

Stallone was already conceptualizing The Expendables 2 even before the first movie was completed. He says, “These guys harken back to a time when our heroes were flesh and blood. They didn’t have any extraordinary abilities other than the desire to survive and to be victorious, even at the expense of their own lives.” Jason Statham whose character is an expert at close counter combats using knives, but is struggling when it comes to his personal life adds, “These are real guys. They are not bullet proof…and each character is screwed up in their own little way…and at the same time they can kick some ass. I think that’s the sort of thing the audience can relate to.” With all these big stars coming together, Stallone made sure that “all the scenes and dialogue are designed to fit each of their personalities, so the audience is going to get a thrill seeing all these different archetypes on the canvas together.”

Majority of the scenes in The Expendables 2 was shot in Bulgaria, situated in southeast Europe. From stunning hidden underground caves to densely-forested mountain ranges, and picturesque Balkan villages untouched by time –all these make for spectacular visuals. “We’re using these locations as characters,” Stallone says, “The caves in Bulgaria, for instance, are world famous. You just can’t duplicate this sort of thing on a soundstage. Some of them are so big that you could fly a plane through them… and we do.”

Showing on August 16The Expendables 2 is sure to make history. As Stallone says, “Everyone in this movie has had a very stellar career and to get all of us together at one time is a minor miracle. It’s never happened before and it will never happen again. This is going to be quite an experience for the audience…” Brought to Philippine theaters by MultiVision Pictures Philippines and Viva International Pictures, don’t miss this chance to see this once in a lifetime phenomenon.
