fb share tweet share


With Christopher Nolan’s space epic Interstellar hitting a limited number of theaters today, and opening across the rest of the world on Friday, the next big sci-fi movie on the calendar is The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1. The first part of the final chapter of the popular teen-centric dystopia is ramping up the marketing engine for the final push. They’ve already dropped tons of trailers, TV spots, photos, and all manner of viral videos, and today brings this new clip for you to check out.

This 41-second snippet is basically an extended version of a moment you’ve already seen in a recent TV ad. In Mockingjay, after being rescued from the Hunger Games arena, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) finds herself in District 13, which everyone thought was destroyed. She’s alive, and safe from the forces of President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and the Capital for the time being, but she’s dealing with some stuff, and part of that is survivor’s guilt because she thinks her sometimes boyfriend Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) is dead. As you learn in this clip, that’s not the case.

fb share tweet share

Mockingjay PSHPhilip Seymour Hoffman’s tragic death earlier this year shocked film fans and cinephiles everywhere. A prolific performer up until the very end, the 46-year-old actor had numerous films in various stages of completion. Movies like God’s Pocket and A Most Wanted man have appeared in the interim, but the highest profile project was by far The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1. Director Francis Lawrence recently talked about how Hoffman’s death impacted the cast, crew, and production.

A difficult time for all of Hoffman’s friends, family members, and fans, Lawrence talked with Empire (via Yahoo), shedding a little light on that period and how they dealt with it personally as well as in a professional capacity. After a break, cast and crewmembers came back to the set at different times, which led to multiple mourning periods, which you have to imagine was both cathartic and hard. Lawrence said:

Peeta Takes Center Stage In This Hunger Games: Mockingjay TV Spot

There’s been plenty of buildup towards The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1, the beginning of the end of the lucrative dystopian teen franchise, including trailers, photos, posters, multiple viral strategies, and so much more. Thus far, the marketing has focused, and rightly so, on heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). This approach makes sense, she’s the center of the franchise, Suzanne Collins’ novels tell the story from her point of view, and Lawrence is one of the biggest movies stars in the world right now. But if you’ve ever sat back and said, “But what about Peeta, bro?” this new TV spot is for you.

We’re getting into some potentially spoiler-y territory for those of you who haven’t seen the last film, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Considering how much money that movie made, there aren’t that many of you out there, but still, better safe than sorry.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Burns In This Short New Trailer

fb share tweet share

Remember that “final” trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 that appeared a while back? Yeah, it turns out that the term final is a bit more relative than we were led to believe in English class, especially since a short new trailer just popped up online. Not that we’re complaining, it’s still makes the upcoming young adult dystopia look like a solid time at the movies.

This short video basically serves to drive home all of the various traumas that heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has do endure over the course of the film. After surviving two rounds in the Hunger Games arena, killing other teenagers for the entertainment of the masses, and watching numerous friends and allies die right before her eyes, she’s got some serious issues to deal with. And her stint in District 13, battling the forces of the Capital, and serving as the face of the burgeoning revolution aren’t doing her any favors.

These Hunger Games Videos Play On Your Anticipation And Fighting Skills

With less than a month to go until The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 starts printing money for Lionsgate, we’re already deep into their final promotional push. We saw a new, Doritos-sponsored video yesterday, and this week also hosts the appearance of the “District Voices” series of videos that showcase life in the various regions of the dystopian world of Panem via YouTube users. And that’s not all, we’re halfway through the week and we’ve got both a new TV spot and another “Voices” video.

This newest commercial boasts the rather grandiose title of “Most Anticipated Event.” While that’s very true, the first part of the finale of the beloved franchise is likely the most anticipated movie of the year in a general sense, at least pretend like you’re working for it. The focus this time around is more on the smaller, personal side of the story. You still see the big picture, with the revolution and the conflict, but, as Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) says, you think about what going to war really means, the real cost of it all, and this collection of snippets of footage tries to put a human face on that.
