Josh Hutcherson may be only 17 and spends a lot of his time out of the Hollywood limelight in suburban Kentucky, but he's already amassed a lifetime's worth of movie experience. He's got the performance capture thing ("The Polar Express") and the 3-D visual effects thing ("Journey to the Center of the Earth") down cold, but the co-star of this summer's "The Kids Are All Right" can sound a bit like an actor generations older then he is. "I like old-fashioned acting on film," Hutcherson said by phone from Kentucky.

The MTV Movie Awards handed top prizes to "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" on Sunday night, naming the dystopian thriller best movie and handing honors for best male and female performances to Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence. But as is often the case at the annual ceremony,  it was upcoming movies that carried the most interest, with a number of big releases receiving key promotional pushes. "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," two of the most anticipated titles in the forthcoming wave of superhero movies, unveiled new clips.

Though "The Hunger Games" relinquished the top spot at the box office after four weeks at No. 1, star Josh Hutcherson still brought the franchise some glory this weekend. Young Hutcherson, who played baker's son Peeta Mellark in "Games," cooked up a win at Saturday evening's GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, where as we told you he was honored with the organization's Vanguard Award. Recognized as a person making a significant difference in promoting equal rights for the LGBT community - other recent winners have included Kristin Chenoweth, Drew Barrymore and Kathy Griffen - Hutcherson was a huge hit with the crowd as the Vanguard's youngest-ever recipient.

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" star Jennifer Lawrence has quite an outsize personality, which is always a plus when trying to make an impression on bored journalists during a lengthy media tour to promote a movie. And she's even captured the attention of late-night TV guys like David Letterman, who peppered her "Hunger Games" costar, Josh Hutcherson, with questions about what it was like to work with the actress. "Is she fun to work with?" Letterman asked Hutcherson on Monday night.

Aside from a cold open about George Zimmerman (who should really just lay low and try not being in the news for a bit) and an obligatory “Hunger Games”-themed monologue , last night's “Saturday Night Live,” hosted by Josh Hutcherson (with musical guest Haim) refrained from covering many timely topics. One of the highlights of the night, for instance, was an '80s-themed homage to the song “Your Love” by the Outfield, which exhibited Hutcherson's enthusiastic and pleasant (if not incredibly memorable)

Joining the ranks of teenage homeowners is "Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson, who has bought a place in the Hollywood Hills West area for $2.5 million. Called the Tree House, the 2,000-square-foot-plus house has been home at different times to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and the late actor Heath Ledger. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom house, built in 1951, sits behind gates on nearly a half-acre filled with sycamores. Features include glass walls, polished concrete floors, an office, beamed ceilings and video security.

After wide speculation, Lionsgate confirmed that it has cast Sam Claflin, best known for his turn in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," to portray the role of Finnick Odair in the upcoming sequel to"The Hunger Games. " Charismatic and manipulative, Finnick, a former Hunger Games victor, is one of the most compelling new tributes Katniss Everdeen must face as she returns to the arena. Katniss forms a rather suspicious alliance with the charming victor, unsure of where his loyalties lie. The role was one of much speculation with Internet chatter speculating on a slew of young actors that could play the integral part in the second chapter of the trilogy.

The rows of experiments at the Los Angeles County Science Fair began with a simple question: Is a dog's mouth cleaner than a human's? Answer: It isn't. How about this: Is the closest living relative of the Tyrannosaurus rex a chicken? Not quite. It's the red junglefowl, a wild chicken. Or: Could a sixth-grader build a hovercraft? He could, capable of carrying both him and his mother. But he couldn't figure out how to propel his creation. "I read that some fire extinguishers would work," he wrote, "but my parents wouldn't let me try. " These results and many others were presented by more than 1,000 young scientists whose work for the 62nd annual science fair was on display at the Pasadena Convention Center on Saturday.

Witty, urbane and thoroughly entertaining, "The Kids Are All Right" is an ode to the virtues of family, in this case a surprisingly conventional one even with its two moms, two kids and one sperm donor. Whatever your politics, between peerless performances, lyrical direction and an adventurous script, this is the sort of pleasingly grown-up fare all too rare in the mainstream daze of this very dry summer. Before delving into the layered perfection of Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo, let's start by getting past any hesitations or reservations about the lesbian household premise on which "The Kids Are All Right" is based.

After riding through Rome, London, Berlin, Madrid and Paris for glitzy premieres and packed junkets, Jennifer Lawrence and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” posse made its much-anticipated stop at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on Monday, premiering the Katniss Everdeen movie in the U.S. ahead of its release Thursday. Directed by Francis Lawrence, the new film follows Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) as she returns to District 12 after her victory at the end of “The Hunger Games” and finds her life has grown a lot more complicated.

A remake of the 1984 film of the same name, the new "Red Dawn" arrives in theaters following years of delays involving bankruptcy and a switch of the film's central villains from the Chinese to North Koreans. If the original, with its premise of American teenagers fighting off a Russian invasion, was something like "The Outsiders Fight Back" steeped in last-gasp Cold War anxiety, this update never finds an equivalent relevance or hook, failing to connect fully with our here and now. While a foreign regime exerting its emergent power over America certainly has a familiar ring to it, if anything, this new "Red Dawn" is a movie in search of its moment.

From the special effects-laden trailers, "Bridge to Terabithia" looks for all the world like the second coming of "The Chronicles of Narnia." It's not -- and that's a very good thing.
