Lionsgate is sticking with "Catching Fire" director Frances Lawrence for "Mockingjay Part 1" and "Mockingjay Part 2," choosing consistency over directorial variety for its flagship "Hunger Games" franchise. Lawrence, who is currently shooting the second movie in the Jennifer Lawrence series, will finish out with the third and fourth films, Lionsgate confirmed in a news release Thursday. The news was first reported by the movie website Collider. In making that choice, Lionsgate is opting to give the series a consistent look and feel with Lawrence -- best known for directing the Will Smith zombie pic "I Am Legend" -- instead of switching up directors in the manner of the "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" franchises.

This post has been corrected. Please see note at bottom for details. Though the White House Correspondents Dinner has for 98 years been a congregation of political media and the president, it's also found many a way to cram in celebrities from Hollywood, reality television and beyond. This year is no exception: invitees include Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan for the Saturday fete, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Kanye West's love interest will attend as a guest of Fox, as will Lohan.

In the bizarre world of "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant," there's a war brewing over, how to put this simply, "portion" control. It seems the truce between those who sip, leaving humans a little weaker but none the wiser, and those who guzzle, gluttons who leave death, destruction and no tip behind, has been on hold for a couple hundred years. But those peaceful days are about to end in Paul Weitz's stab at vampire camp in "Cirque du Freak," a not quite deadly adaptation of the frothy fanged kids book series by Darren Shan.

In its own sweetly bombastic way the 2008 remake of "Journey to the Center of the Earth" did the job, the job being a 21st century 3-D bash starring Brendan Fraser - an actor who gives his all to the green screen, every time - and loosely based on the 19th century Jules Verne adventure, a natural for the movies. Its script proceeded from the idea that Verne, science fiction visionary, was in reality writing about real places and genuine fantastic phenomena only disguised as fiction.

The smartest aspect of "Moto X Kids" is how TAG Entertainment has booked it into five local Loews Cineplex theaters for Saturday- and Sunday-only matinees and some early-evening screenings as part of a subsequent broader release in such cities as Atlanta, Detroit, Houston and San Francisco. This children's film is as lively as it is elementary.
