Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 Trailer Released

Lionsgate has been getting everyone ready by slowly leaking photos from the movie since last week. Today is the day that we have all been waiting for; the release of the first trailer.

I have to say that I love that they opened with the wedding, the wedding of Finnick and Annie is such a big deal. I won’t go into all details since I’m not going to make this one a book spoiler.  They do a great job at hinting at some of the action that is to come, this part of the book is even more action packed then the first part. I am sure many of you are wondering about the whole Peeta – Katniss hug, well you are just going to have to watch the movie to find that one out.  I am excited for the movie, especially since I know they filmed the epilogue to the movie.

Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 will be hitting theaters this November, we all know I will be there Thursday night checking it out.

Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is here, if you are anything like me you have been waiting for this since last year. I was there at 11:00 in theaters on Thursday ready to see the movie.  I will admit no Katniss braid this time, but I did not do a good job with it last year because my hair is short.

Final Trailer:

The movie will officially be in theaters on Nov 21, but tickets go on sale today.

The Official Mockingjay Part 1 Trailer is Finally Here

After months of waiting the trailer for Mockingjay has finally arrived.

I have to say I am even more excited for the movie after seeing this trailer.  It did a great job of showing some of the key elements in the story.  Seeing Peeta working for the Capitol, Katniss fighting for him, the bombing, and of course all the fighting.  There is a lot that happens in this story, I will do my best to not give any spoilers right now.  I like what I have seen about life in District 13, it is completely different than life in the other districts.  Effie in all grey, with no makeup, hair, or her usually clothes is still shocking.  The action looks like it will be amazing in the movie, I am looking forward to that because there are a lot of action scenes in this movie.  I am very happy with this trailer and cannot wait to see the movie on November 21st.

 

Hunger Games Mockingjay: Part 1 Teaser Trailer

The first official movie trailer is out for Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1:

Well, I don’t know about the rest of you but I am excited.  I think they did a great job showing what the issues are in the first part of the book.  Which is how to get Katniss to be the face of the rebellion because no one else can do it.  It was her stunt with the berries that caused the rebellion in the first place, it is she who people have been following.  I like that is what they gave us to start, people who have not read the books don’t know how Mockingjay starts, well now they have an idea.  I like that they showed people being attacked, killed, and the bombings.  How President Snow banned everything to do with the Mockingjay.  It gives people a good idea that things are not well in Panem at this time.  Which would explain all the President Snow videos trying to unite the nation.  A lot happens in Mockingjay, I won’t give anything away but a lot happens in this book, the politics, the character growth, the friendships, Gale or Peeta, hope, love, family, freedom, there is a lot in this book. With that being said, I am excited for this trailer and I am even more excited for the future trailers that will be coming out.

Who is planning on seeing Mockingjay in November?

Mockingjay Teaser Trailer #2

President Snow has released another address to the citizens of Panem, this time with victor Joanna Mason joining President Snow and victor Peeta Mellark.  Check out what President Snow has to say in this video.

Wait a min it that Beetee and he is telling us the Mockingjay is alive.

Ok, everyone who has seen Catching Fire knows that Katniss is alive at the end of the movie.  The citizens of Panem do not know this and President Snow doesn’t, which means that Peeta and Joanna don’t either.  That might change their stance once they know that Katniss is still alive.

I am happy to see that they are doing what I had hoped they would do which is use the propaganda from the book to help promote the movie.  We all know that they can’t include everything from the book, this is a great way to give book fans aspects of the book.  It is also a great way to give just the movie fans something new to draw them in even more.  It would really be fun if they imply/say/or show some of these propaganda’s being filmed.  We all know that they are going to include extra scenes from other people’s point of views so it would only make sense to show some of the filming or the aftermath of the filming especially from the Capitol.  This is a great marketing strategy and one the filmmakers, cast, and studio can have a lot of fun with.

What do you think of this new teaser trailer?

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Teaser Trailer

We have all been sitting here waiting for a Mockingjay: Part 1 trailer, well we have officially gotten our first one.

Well it is a teaser trailer but not the one we had hoped for we had wanted to see more about the movie.  At the same time it was a good trailer to do because the Capitol is all about propaganda, well propaganda plays a big part in the third book (that is the only spoiler I will give you in this).  I am curious how many of these we will be seeing leading up to the movie, but if done right it could be a lot of fun and make us feel like the citizens of Panem.

Now I am sure many of you are wondering why Peeta is standing next to President Snow, while I know why I won’t say, but I will give you my speculations that I had while I was reading the book.  As we all know Peeta was taken by the Capitol at the end of the last movie.  We all know the Capitol is a bunch of sadistic controlling assholes so they probably have something on Peeta because the Capitol always has something on people.  I am better they are telling him that if he helps them then they won’t hurt Katniss or they won’t kill her, etc. Peeta might be playing the Capitol he has done it before ie: the baby comment during the interviews of the Quarter Quell.  Peeta is probably really sure that at some point they are going to come save him because Katniss would never leave him.  It could be a fake Peeta, the Capitol has amazing medical stuff maybe they made someone look like Peeta we don’t know.  Maybe Peeta has really joined up with the Capitol because he is mad that the resistance let him get taken.  He could be tired of just being Katniss’s bf, fiance, etc., maybe the Capitol makes him feel special.  There could be a lot of reasons as to why Peeta is standing up there.  Why do you think that Peeta is standing up there with President Snow?

Shocking photos from the set of Mockingjay: Part 2

The Official First Look at Alma Coin for Mockingjay Part 1

Lionsgate has released the first look of Julianne Moore as President Alma Coin.

mockingjaystill

I like the way she looks, it does seem accurate to the books description:

“She’s fifty or so, with gray hair that falls in an unbroken sheet to her shoulders. […] Her eyes are gray, but not like those of people from the Seam. They’re very pale, as if almost all the color has been sucked out of them. The color of slush that you wish would melt away.”

I think it will be interested to see Julianne Moore take on the role of President Coin, it is a rather interested and layered role.  She is a rather good actress, so I have been looking forward to her portrayal of the character.

Lionsgate also released a few photos from the set of Beetee, Haymitch, and Plutarch with President Coin.
