Jennifer Lawrence hit the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." Hordes of fans came out to support the film, and Lawrence took time to pose with fans and sign autographs. The movie - the second installment in "The Hunger Games" franchise - opens in U.S. theaters on Friday (November 22).
Dolly Parton has supplied some Christmas magic for fans at her namesake, Tennessee theme park, Dollywood. The singer is appearing daily in a new musical version of "A Christmas Carol" - via hologram. The production uses 3D holographic technology to make it seem as if Parton is actually on stage, performing next to live actors. She plays the Ghost of Christmas Past.
Monty Python fans: gear up. The comedy group will be reuniting for a stage show - this according to Variety. The live performance will be the first time the five surviving members have performed together in 15 years. More details on the show will be released during an event in London on Thursday (November 21).
The stage musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" will end its three-year run on Broadway in January. The show is the 16th highest grossing Broadway production of all time, having earned more than 200 million dollars since its problem-plagued opening in 2010. It's not the end for the production, however. Plans are in the works to take the show to Las Vegas.
