Just because Alexander Ludwig, 20, who shot to fame with the wildly popular adaptation of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Wes Bentley, Woody Harrelson, and Lenny Kravitz, can't return to his role as the diabolical Cato for reasons that are obvioius to anyone who read / watched, that doesn't mean there aren't big things in store for the young actor.

The darkest hour, indeed: the one spent calculating all the things you could have purchased with the exorbitant $17 you paid for such a cataclysmic bore outrageously labeled 3D. For $17 you can probably rent or buy both of producer Timur Bekmambetov's horror films — Night Watch and Day Watch — which are astonishing, as well as Wanted, which is rated R and has plenty of eye candy (aside from Emile Hirsch's baby blues, the PG-13-rated Darkest Hour has none).
