Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
November 21st cannot come soon enough!
A couple of days ago, Buzzfeed posted an article with several shots from the set of Mockingjay Part I. I’ll post a couple here (all pictures are linked to the Buzzfeed article).
If those pictures don’t slate your thirst for Mockingjay news, you can head over to the newly-launched Huger Games Exclusive Website. On the site you can watch an interview with Julianne Moore who plays President Coin, you can read a round table discussion with the filmmakers, read about bringing the book to the big screen, get some exclusive first looks at the characters and actors, and you can check out the animated movie poster.
There isn’t a trailer out yet, but it should be coming out very soon. Initial rumors had it slated for release in April, but that obviously hasn’t happened. Though I must say, with the tragic death of Philip Seymour-Hoffman (Plutarch Heavensbee) happening in the middle of filming the two Mockingjay films, I’m really surprised that there haven’t been more delays on this film.
I was really impressed with how much of an improvement Catching Fire was from Hunger Games, so I’m really hoping the movies continue that upward trajectory. The whole “final movie in two parts” thing has me rolling my eyes a bit (seriously, EVERY popular series doesn’t need to have a two-parter final film, guys), but you can still bet I will be first in line to see both Mockingjay films.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m about to go waste my life playing around on the Hunger Games first look site, and scouring the internet for pictures from the Mockingjay set.
Are you as excited as I am for Mockingjay? Let’s talk about it in the comments!
