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?
