Also in the cast are Viola Davis as Dr. Volumnia Gaul, Dexter Sol Ansell as Young Coriolanus, Rosa Gotzler as Young Tigris and Fionnula Flanagan as Grandma’am.
The Ballad of Songbirds And Snakes is a prequel film set many years before the rise of Katniss Everdeen.
Based on the Suzanne Collins novel of the same name, the prequel centers on a young Coriolanus Snow as his experience mentoring District 12 tribute Lucy Gray Baird in the 10th Hunger Games shapes him into the villain fans of the franchise know well.
The original Hunger Games movies – The Hunger Games (2012), Catching Fire (2013), Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014) and Mockingjay – Part 2 (2015) – made global stars of Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.
Hunger Games fans know Coriolanus Snow as the evil president of Panem (played by Donald Sutherland in the original four movies), but in The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, he is a young man being slowly corrupted by government forces.
A war has left his family in financial ruin, which makes the prospect of winning the 10th Hunger Games enticing. He becomes a mentor to Lucy Gray Baird and their relationship complicates his plan.
At the start of her fall 2023 season of The Kelly Clarkson Show she showed off a more slender frame after she said she simply made healthier choices.

The host has never looked better after divorcing Brandon Blackstock, with whom she has two children.
The star has slimmed down after making ‘better life choices’ in the wake of her messy divorce and brutal custody battle, DailyMail.com shared exclusively last week.
The slim-down fueled speculation that she had turned to surgery – or the new celebrity favorite, Ozempic – to shed the pounds.
Kelly has yet to publicly address her transformation, but a source has insisted that she will speak openly with fans if she has used Ozempic.
‘If she were to have taken Ozempic, or if she were to take it in the future, she would be the first person to share that with the world,’ they said.
The look: On Thursday she received Thanksgiving tips from Martha Stewart
‘She wouldn’t keep that a secret. She is very transparent and real, and that is the person she always has been. Kelly doesn’t BS anyone.’
Her divorce, relocating from Los Angeles to New York City, and wanting to be ‘healthier’ for her children – River Rose, nine, and Remington Alexander, seven – are all thought to be behind her decision to focus on her well-being.
‘She is now in New York, and the stresses of divorce and those who talked about the toxic work environment at her show have really taken all the toll they could, and now her well-being and health are more of a focus for her and that improvement is now happening,’ the source continued.
‘She is making better life decisions and making decisions that are right for her and her family.
According to a source close to Kelly (pictured left in March 2022), she likely had ‘a little nudge from somewhere’
‘Now that she is a single mom, she wants to be healthy for her kids and be around for a long time, so just like everything else, she has maintained her new life and her weight with a structure of doing things the old-fashioned way, through hard work.’
Kelly first flaunted her new figure on Instagram on Saturday as she prepared for an appearance on Jimmy Fallon.
Predictably, fans were quick to comment on the sizzling new snap, with many questioning if she had used Ozempic – a medication used to treat type 2 Diabetes but also has a weight loss side effect.
Celebrities including Sharon Osbourne, Tracy Morgan and Amy Schumer have all used Ozempic.
Kelly, who won the first season of American Idol in 2002, also showed off her slimmed down form while attending the We Can Survive concert in support of mental health awareness on October 14.

In 2020 she admitted that she felt ‘more pressure’ in the music industry when she was thin.
The Since U Been Gone singer said that she used to be shown naked magazine covers of women and told ‘this is what you’re competing with.’
‘I felt more pressure. It was more of magazines shoved in front of you and, ‘This is what you’re competing with and we’ve got to compete with it.’ I can’t compete with that. That’s not even my image. That’s not who I am. That’s who they are,’ she told Glamour UK.
Kelly and her ex, Brandon, were married for seven years before they split in 2020, setting off a protracted bout of legal squabbling over money.
The divorce dragged on for a year and a half before it was ultimately finalized in March of 2022. It led to a brutal custody fight between the exes, with Clarkson eventually securing primary custody.
Kelly released a bitter break-up album earlier this year called Chemistry that detailed the ‘good, the bad and the ugly’ of her relationship with Brandon.
She recently moved to New York City with their children for a ‘fresh start’ and will now host her self-titled talk show out of the Big Apple.
