In addition to being an Oscar-winning actress and the lead of a billion-dollar movie franchise in The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence can now add best-selling singer to her resume. The song “The Hanging Tree” was performed by Lawrence in Mockingjay — Part 1 and later released to radio stations where it debuted at #12 on the Hot 100, and on iTunes where it sold over 1 million copies. This are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which travels to District 13 for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay!
Here is a brief list of things that happened during Jennifer Lawrence's appearance on 'The Late Show' last night: she sang with host David Letterman, the duo discussed tummy troubles, they chatted about bowling, they both totally biffed introducing a clip, Lawrence begged Letterman to not retire, they walked out during a live taping, and then Lawrence took over the entire show.
We're already obsessed with the fact that Lorde has curated the soundtrack to 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1,' so of course we can't stop listening to her own song from the film, 'Yellow Flicker Beat,' which just dropped today (Sept. 29).
By now we should have all seen that heart-pumping 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1' trailer, which finally took us inside District 13 and unveiled Jennifer Lawrence as the newly militarized Katniss Everdeen. (Just in case, it's embedded above.) But following its release, Liongate revealed some new photos from the film, as well as details on the characters we'll encounter.
