Mockingjay News!


For the fans of the Hunger Games this is directed straight at you, whilst we have a look at the newest report for the Mockingjay Part One Movie. This is where you'll be able to find everything you need to know. 


With fans of the Hunger Games eagerly awaiting the Mockingjay Part One movie, many are going crazy about the fact that we still do not have a theatrical trailer. The scheduled date for the Mockingjay movie to hit theatres 21st November of this year. This means that it is 138 days away and we still do not have a trailer. Only propaganda report and stills, the rest is left up to our imagination. 

We are also told 'Fans should expect a cliffhanger from the first instalment of the movie'  and reports claimed that the major action scenes from the book will be shown in the second adaptation of the book. 
Although Mockingjay is the weakest out of the three books it includes a major bloodbath about the insurgency against the Capitol. However producers say that by bringing it up onto big screen it'll be an advantage claiming that they will make it bigger than the books. 

Back in October 2013 US weekly did a Catching Fire special to confirm that the capitol scenes will be filmed in France and Berlin.
An abandoned mill in the town of Griffin just south of Atlanta is being used for filming and rumours and assumptions have been spread saying that this will be District 8, but we cannot be sure. 
Much of the movie was being shot in Atlanta and Georgia. However places such as Los Angeles was added to the list.

 The capitol Propaganda is to keep the fans ticking over, telling us to sit tight and more will come later, this is only to keep us satisfied. The posters highlight the strengths of the outlying districts, showing that each is important to the Capitol. 





A photo of Josh Hutcherson surfaced online back in March of what appears to be set make up for Mockingjay. Josh is with Laura Simpson who gained media attention after a behind the scenes write up from the Oscars. He is wearing the golden necklace that Effie Trinket gave to Peeta as a token going into the Quarter Quell, and make up looking like char, perhaps to signify burns perhaps from Capitol Torture. Many were confused as to why Peeta is wearing the necklace as he gave it to Katniss in Catching Fire, however it is not totally clear whether she gave it back or that Peeta kept it. 

The best guess is that it will be the Peeta we will see in Mockingjay Part 2. His black eye is slightly faded meaning it is an older incident. It could be the scene where Peeta tries to warn District 13.Perhaps  
At the mention of my name, Peeta’s face contorts in effort. “Katniss…how do you think this will end? What will be left? No one is safe. Not in the Capitol. Not in the districts. And you…in Thirteen…” He inhales sharply, as if fighting for air; his eyes look insane. “Dead by morning!”
Off camera, Snow orders, “End it!” Beetee throws the whole thing into chaos by flashing a still shot of me standing in front of the hospital at three-second intervals. But between the images, we are privy to the real-life action being played out on the set. Peeta’s attempt to continue speaking. The camera knocked down to record the white tiled floor. The scuffle of boots. The impact of the blow that’s inseparable from Peeta’s cry of pain.
And his blood as it splatters the tiles.
Perhaps this was the first sight of a hijacked Peeta. 


Well, when I heard this name I had no sense if recognition whatsoever. Antonius is going to be played by Robert Knepper who also didn't know who the character was claiming "They're so secretive about things like this!" 

Well we soon found out that Antonius is a solider fighting for the capitol, so he is a bad guy, entertainment weekly say that 'Robert Knepper tends to play nasties.' 

Or he could be a soldier fighting for District Thirteen, turning the tables completely and being a good guy. 

But in my opinion I think he is going to be a bad guy, Antonius sounds very Roman, and in the Capitol Roman names seem to be the trend. Such as Flavia, Portia, Cinna...


Not only Tributes went crazy about this teaser but it seems like the whole world did as well, this 'trailer' was the most viewed trailer with over 10 million views! 

Many of you will be pleased to know that a full length trailer is due out later this month and I will be eagerly awaiting and probably scream and jump up and down when it is released!
