In the long and storied history of these United States, there have been a select few occasions where our friends (or enemies) from across the pond have decided it was time to conquer America. From the Revolutionary War to the War of 1812 to Beatlemania, we Americans are no strangers to British invasions. However, it seemed that in the waning decades of the 20th Century, our fellow English speakers were content to stay on their side of the Atlantic. But now, just when we were least expecting it, the Brits have decided to storm our shores once again with their sights set of dominating our vast nation. Musically, that is.

Well guys, it’s not long now 5 days!
How does one explain the feeling of finally sitting in a theater just minutes away from seeing a movie you’ve been waiting years for? Well, here goes nothing…
BEWARE! SPOILERS AHEAD
Now that both have a solid foothold in the United States, it’s interesting to see the different paths The Wanted and One Direction seem to be taking. Even though the bands are close in age, their management teams have decided to go in almost opposite directions (no pun intended) with their promotion.
First up is a brand new clip that premiered on The Ellen Show. This clip features Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. This is a scene straight from the book, and even though Cinna isn’t exactly what I pictured, I think Kravitz will do an amazing job. Lawrence is actually best friends with Kravitz’s daughter, Zoe, with whom she costarred in X-Men First Class, so Lenny and Jennifer were close before filming. According to director Gary Ross, this made the characters’ relationship more authentic on film, which, in my experience, trumps appearance any day.
