Lars Von Trier’s Nazi Comments, Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Hunger Games’ Photo In Today’s Twitter-Wood

Lars von Trier has caused quite the stir over controversial comments he made at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. He’s been condemned by Cannes officials and now he’s getting similar abuse from film industry peers on Twitter, with a heaping amount of tongue-in-cheek jabs coming from Eli Roth.

In more pleasant news, the world got its first look at Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games” yesterday, and one of her co-stars — Elizabeth Banks, who plays Effie Trinket — was especially blown away by Lawrence’s new look.

I’m @roundhoward and there’s all that and more in today’s Twitter-Wood for May 19, 2011.
