Victory is theirs!
The story kicks off with the pair embarking on its victory tour, unaware that President Snow has a surprise in store for them at the 75th Annual Hunger Games, also known as the Quarter Quell.
Check out the new promotional photos now:

Shaun White might dominate in the air of winter, but the snow boarder extraordinaire got himself in some trouble early Sunday morning on the grounds of a Nashville hotel.
Here’s what allegedly went down:
The Nashville Metro Police Department says cops were called to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel around 2 a.m. because a clearly drunk White evacuated the facility by pulling the fire alarm. He also reportedly smashed a phone.
When another guest tried to stop The X Games champion from fleeing the scene via taxi, White kicked that individual and sprinted away on foot. Or tried to, at least.
Oscar Pistorius of South Africa may not have captured a medal at the London Olympics, but you’d be hard pressed to find a bigger winner at the games, or in life.
This photo surfacing Sunday on Twitter proves it 1,000 times over.
It’s an older image, but it resurfaced after Pistorius raced in the 400-meter semifinals. What Oscar Pistorius, a double amputee, did this week is immeasurable.
Because of him, Ellie Challs, the young girl he is seen racing here, can look up to a man who faced the same obstacles as her but refuse to accept limits:

Michael Phelps is dating a 25-year old model named Megan Rossee.
How is this NOT the most pressing off-the-field-court/field/arena story of the 2012 London Olympics at the moment? Because Nick Delpopolo was given the boot from the Games after testing positive for marijuana.
And the U.S. judo team member hilariously claims it’s due to the accidental ingestion of a pot brownie.
Delpopolo was expelled from the Olympics last week, while his accreditation was stripped and his seventh place finish expunged. But the 23-year old swears he never meant to get high.
The dirty test was “caused by myMore >
Michel Morganella has become the second Olympic athlete sent home from the Summer Olympics due to an offense message on Twitter.
Two days before the Games even started, Voula Papachristou of Greece was given the boot after disrespecting African-Americans in a joke about West Nile mosquitoes.
Now Morganella – a member of the Swiss soccer team – has suffered the same fate after a defeat to South Korea resulted in a Tweet that included references to wanting to “punch” and “burn” the victors from that nation.
“As a member of the Swiss Olympic mission he gravely discriminated, insulted andMore >
In fewer than 140 characters, the 2012 Olympic dreams of Voula Papachristou have been dashed.
Greece’s triple-jump champion has actually been removed from her country’s national team just days prior to the Opening Ceremony in London because she posted the following Tweet on July 22:
“With so many Africans in Greece .. At least the mosquitoes of West Nile .. will eat homemade food!”
With backlash building and rebuke of this tasteless joke strong, Greece has announced that Papachristou will not compete at the Games due to “statements contrary to the values and ideas of the OlympicMore >
This just in: teens of America really love Justin Bieber. And Taylor Swift. And pretty much every member of The Vampire Diaries cast.
That’s what we learned at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards at least, which aired tonight on Fox and which crowned the following stars as winners in the following categories…

If Lifetime’s Dance Moms were The Hunger Games … it wouldn’t be that different!
This amusing two-minute parody uses clips from the controversial reality show, dubbed over with some memorable Hunger Games quotes at surprisingly appropriate moments, producing an intense, chilling and gripping trailer.
May the odds be ever in your overbearing, insane parents’ favor:
At the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday evening, host Russell Brand kicked off the event with a zany monologue in which he mocked Justin Bieber, Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian, Michael Fassbender’s penis, Katy Perry and himself.
After giving Bieber props for his alleged scuffle with a photographer, Brand said, “Justin Bieber is so pretty that even if he was attacking me, I’d do a little orgasm.”
It only got zanier from there.
“The last time I hosted I did marry someone who was there, so I’m keeping my eyes open for a new wife tonight,” Brand said,More >
Memo to Lil Wayne: You need “tickets” to get into an “event.”
If the tickets are sold out, then you usually can’t go. Sometimes there are exceptions, but usually not for a game that has already been sold out for weeks, and generally not for seats better than 99.9 percent of the people who bought them already.
Lil Wayne learned this the hard way last night.
Weezy felt like going to Thursday’s NBA playoff tilt between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the visiting San Antonio Spurs. The Thunder, with no seats to spare (least of all any courtside seats, which he insisted on sitting in), politelyMore >
Josh Hutcherson is no longer hungering for a girlfriend. Why? Because he’s reportedly playing the game of love with Ariana Grande!
An insider tells Life & Style that the actor is romantically involved with Victorious star Ariana Grande. She plays Cat Valentine on that Nickelodeon sitcom.
“They’ve been seeing each other since the beginning of the year,” a source tells the tabloid, adding that Grande even attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games with her man, but didn’t walk down the red carpet because “they’ve been trying to keep it low-profile.”
Hutcherson previously datedMore >
Taylor Swift is under consideration for another major movie role.
The film is being developed by Sony Pictures and Di Bonaventura Pictures’ and would be an adaptation of Sheila Weller’s book “Girls Like Us.” The role would also mark Swift’s first dramatic turn, as she recently voiced a character in The Lorax and appeared in Valentine’s Day.
The movie will follow around the careers of Mitchell, Carly Simon andMore >
Move aside, Basketball Wives. Step off, Jenelle Evans.
Two girls on TLC’s My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding just set the new high water mark for reality TV fights, and it may take a long time to top this.
At a wedding in West Virginia, two girls (one from each side of the family) got into it after one said the soon-to-be newlyweds are basically a bad fit.
Mellie (the smaller of the two) hails from the groom’s side, while Diamond was the maid of honor on the bride’s side. There was no love lost to start with.
The tipping point came after theMore >
Josh Hutcherson, a co-founder of LGBT group Straight But Not Narrow, will receive the Vanguard Award at the 23rd annual GLAAD Media Awards on April 21.
The organization made the announcement today, adding of The Hunger Games star:
“Emerging as a leader in a new generation of equality advocates, Josh Hutcherson has consistently used his platform to help young people understand that no one should face discrimination simply because of who they are.

Shannen Doherty and Kurt Iswarienko, her now-husband, star in the new WE reality show Shannen Says April 10. It might as well be called Shannen Wears the Pants.
The 40-year-old’s new show documents her plan to walk down the aisle for the third time, during which she becomes a total bridezilla, to the surprise of no one.
Witness the sneak peek below, in which she bullies Iswarienko into abiding by her strict conditions, such as how Sundays are going to be spent in their house:
“I so can pull a wedding off in seven weeks, I have totally got this. And I have KurtMore >
