[News Bites] Sam Claflin Is ‘Catching Fire’, ‘Prometheus’ Blu-ray Art, and “The Walking Dead” Covers

Snow White and the Huntsman‘s Sam Claflin (pictured below) has been cast as “Finnick” in the The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Described as “charismatic” and “clever,” Finnick — from District 4 — won the Hunger Games when he was 14. In theaters November 22, 2013 from Lionsgate and director Francis Lawrence, the sequel continues the story of Katniss Everdeen and the fictional, futuristic nation of Panem. Due to the events of the previous novel, a rebellion against the ruling Capitol has begun, and Katniss and fellow tribute Peeta are forced to return to the arena in a special edition of the The Hunger Games.

Entertainment Weekly will premiere four covers (below) featuring the cast of AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 3. Subscribers will receive Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Michonne (Danai Gurira), the Governor (David Morrissey) or Dixon brothers (Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker). Comic creator Robert Kirkman tells the mag: “This season really is about setting up these two worlds and watching them come to a head and collide. And you know that there are going to be some pretty explosive encounters between Rick and the Governor. This season is going to be about getting to know these two characters, and then waiting for their eventual confrontation that could destroy everything.” The zombie apocalypse resumes October 14 on AMC.

Weyland Investors has Blu-ray art for both U.S. and Hungarian releases of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. In stores October 11, the home video release of the Alien prequel will be jam-packed with extra features. Watch for an official announcement as it comes in.
