Official synopsis:

The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.

    Dang Phillip. Looking good. We miss you so damn much.

  • Isak

    She really does know her shit, uh?
    I bet she’ll be fabulous, as always.

      Gotta love it when an actor WANTS to be part of a franchise. Not only for the paycheck, but because she legitimately likes the source material and understands what it takes to translate it well to the big screen.

      • Isak

        Yep, exactly my point.
        From her answers you can really tell that, yes, she did read the books and yes, she loved them and understands what the characters are all about. Very refreshing.

    Maybe it’s just me but when I first saw Philip Seymour Hoffman shot, it really took me back. I know he’s dead and all, and it’s not even the shock of remembering that he wasn’t alive anymore but,
    does anyone else think he looks, ODD here? Maybe it’s just me, but his face looks like it lost at least 10% of the fat that he had and I’m not saying he’s necessarily fat in anything. The face just looks different.
    I remember hearing an announcement that they would be using some state of the art CGI models to fill in scenes to give us realistic looking PSH for scenes he hadn’t finished. Maybe this is an early look/experiment?
    And damn, I never though I’d be saying this but Julianne Moore with brown striped grey hair has never looked sexier.

      He died while they were still in production on his scenes for Mockingjay: Part 2. He totally wrapped his part for the first installment. That’s all Hoffman.

    I understand it comes down to trying to wring every last dollar out of the franchise, but it’s still massively silly to split a 300 page book into two films.

    • DjangoBro

      What part of they will be adding stuff don’t you understand? The book is exclusive to Katniss’ perspective. So obviously they are going to add stuff that weren’t in the book. And on top of that… The Hobbit is an even shorter book but still managed to get split into 3 films… Why do people forget about this?

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        I understand it perfectly. As I said, it comes down to trying to wring every last dollar out of the franchise. Of course they’re going to add stuff in order to justify a second movie. But is it necessary? Not even slightly.

      • AaronS12

        Have you read Mockingjay? Mockingjay was extremely restricted to Katniss’s POV and as a result a lot of the excitement and intensity left by Catching Fire was lost in the opening chapters of Mockingjay. Not to mention, the ending could have been a bit more extended.

        If you want to talk about wringing out every last dollar out of a franchise – lets talk about Twilight and Divergent: Twilight’s last book was a horrendous read and a lot of what was there could have been omitted; those two movies could have been turned into one two and a half hour movie. Allegiant (which is the third and last book) is pretty much contrived and boring and I do not see how they are going to make that into two parts. And The Hobbit… as three movies is just utterly stupid.

        Mockingjay can actually benefit from this split because it allows them to actually improve on the source material to make two high-quality films – all the major moments and sequences are apparently going to be in there but because of its very limited view in a world that is extremely diverse and is about to explode into war; it would be interesting and more exciting to see how things are progressing outside of Katniss’s environment. And by the sounds of things; both parts is going to be able to balance both intense action sequences and character moments.

      • DjangoBro

        Thank you!! Wow, couldn’t have said it better myself.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        I thank you for a well reasoned and polite response. Far more than the other guy managed.

        I’ve read the entire series and largely enjoyed it. However, Mockingjay felt rushed and was forgettable compared to the first two. I agree it would benefit from a rewrite, but there is no guarantee splitting the book into two halves will “fix” it. That is a nice way to spin it, the but cynic in me knows no decision is made in Hollywood for purely artistic purposes.

      • DjangoBro

        Yes it is necessary because the book missed out on A LOT of things… Those things needed to be explored for the movie. When the movie comes out you will see why they decided to split it. And who gives a rat’s ass if they are doing it for money, its a business!
