Upcoming films featuring the cast of ‘The Hunger Games’

With 18 months between us and Catching Fire one might wonder what films to watch between now and then.  Lucky for us the cast is very busy these days with multiple films coming out prior to Catching Fire‘s release.  MTV has compiled a list of these films and their release dates for us, check them out below!

Jennifer Lawrence
If only Lawrence could swipe Katniss’ bow and arrow for use in her horror flick “The House at the End of the Street,” out September 21. Lawrence plays a teen who moves next door to a home where a grisly murder took place. She befriends the surviving son and, well, things don’t go so well for her after that.

Two months later, Lawrence will appear alongside Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in the big-screen adaptation of Matthew Quick’s novel “The Silver Linings Playbook.” She reportedly plays a widow trying to seduce Cooper’s character, who has recently been released from a mental institution.

The Cooper coupling will continue with the period drama “Serena” (a role originally intended for Angelina Jolie), after the thriller “Devil You Know” makes its debut.

Josh Hutcherson
After bonding with Liam on the set of “The Hunger Games,” Hutcherson will star alongside the other Hemsworth brother in the November 21 release “Red Dawn,” which finds a group of teenagers trying to protect their town from invading North Korean soldiers.

The baker’s son has a couple of other projects in the pipeline (neither of which have official release dates), but keep an eye out for “7 Days in Havana” and “The Forger.”

Liam Hemsworth
The younger Hemsworth will flex his action muscles throughout the rest of 2012 and into the new year. First up is “AWOL” (scheduled for release sometime this year), which follows a Vietnam soldier who defects to win back the love of his life. The film co-stars Teresa Palmer, Aimee Teegarden and Chris Lowell.

If that doesn’t sound harrowing enough, Hemsworth will team up with every action star ever (read: Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris) for the splashy sequel “The Expendables 2,” out August 17. His list of in-the-works flicks also includes “Paranoia,” “Timeless” and “Arabian Nights.”

Elizabeth Banks
Fans won’t have to wait long to see Elizabeth Banks grace the silver screen once again. The bubbly blond dons a pregnancy belly for next week’s “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” based on the iconic self-help book. (That woman loves her some adaptations, huh?)

Shortly after (June 29, to be exact), Banks will portray long-lost sister to Chris Pine, who must find his secret sibling to deliver a $150,000 inheritance in the film “People Like Us.”

Woody Harrelson
The word “eclectic” comes to mind when summing up Woody Harrelson’s CV — and it’s not an ill-advised adjective to describe his list of upcoming projects either. “Seven Psychopaths,” out in limited release November 2, follows a struggling screenwriter who gets caught up in the criminal underworld after his weird friend kidnaps a mobster’s dog.

Then there’s 2013’s “Now You See Me,” in which a group of illusionists pull heists as part of their act and give the spoils to their audiences. (Uh, do you guys need extras?) The January release co-stars Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco and Morgan Freeman.

Are there any of these you are particularly excited to see?  Let us know!
