With the film’s release just a week away at this point, Lionsgate is turning the media saturation crank on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 up to full throttle. During an appearance on Good Morning America today, stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth introduced a new clip that features Hemsworth’s Gale calling Hucherson’s Peeta out on his beta male nature. Which is sort of like castigating a tree because its made of wood. There’s also a really cool TV ad that starts out as a Mazda spot but, in a bit of synergy that suggests this franchise wants to have its cake and eat it too, becomes something else. For an allegory on the media being used as a distraction, the Hunger Games series uses it to its benefit masterfully.
Hit the jump to check out The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Clip and TV spot. The film opens on November 21st, and also stars Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, Sam Claflin, and Jena Malone.
