Every once and awhile there’s a new star that catapults into an unpredicted orbit. Whether it’s from a small part in a blockbuster, a reoccurring character on a sitcom, or an under-the-radar role in an independent feature, some new talent’s going to have a breakout role to remember. But Hollywood has already proved a successful launch pad for these nominees. Who’s destined for intergalactic stardom?

From budgets and salaries, to the accident that sent star Jennifer Lawrence to the hospital, the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter features director Gary Ross and never-revealed details about the fast-approaching pop culture phenomenon, in theaters March 23.
The first of four films of Suzanne Collins’ massively popular three-book series The Hunger Games, about two dozen children randomly chosen to compete for survival, opens March 23 on more than 4,000 screens across the country (as with Twilight and Harry Potter, the final book will be split into two films). The film’s reception could determine whether its stars — Jennifer Lawrence, 21; Josh Hutcherson, 19; and Liam Hemsworth, 22 — ascend to Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson-Taylor Lautner superstardom and fill the gap opening as Twilight heads toward its final chapter.
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island premiere will be taking place on Thursday, February 2nd, at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, and celebrity arrivals start at 6:00pm. If you live in the L.A. area, please come out and show your support to Josh & the entire cast by being there as they arrive!!!
