With the final movie in the world wide phenomenon, Mockingjay pt 2, set to come out in about two weeks, we are starting to get new footage from the movie in preparation. The promotion tour is officially under way as the movie begins its release tour and two new clips have been released on the movie’s YouTube page to help hold fans over (or make them more anxious).
In the first clip, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is talking with Johanna (Jena Malone) about how she is ready for action. Johanna, of course, has been ready to go back to war ever since she got saved from the Capital and got to District 13. Now that she has her energy, she’s even more prepared.
In the second clip, it’s a lot softer as Katniss and Peeta are talking about what they did to him. If you’ve read the book, you know how important this scene is to their relationship and there are very subtle hints to what it’s like now that he’s back. Peeta explains how they turned his memories of her against him and got him to want to kill her. We get that first glimpse of the ‘Real, not real’ game they created and it’s pretty much a word for word adaptation from the book. Fans of the world rejoice to this news.
All the images and footage we have seen from the movie have shown that it’s very much going to be a final battle between Katniss and Snow (Donald Sutherland). What Francis Lawrence has been able to do is keep to the heart of the story while enticing them to keep coming back from more. We all know (whether or not you have read the books) that this movie is going to be a powerful one that you are going to be talking about for days and hopefully it will make splitting the final book into two parts worth it.
The tickets for the final movie are already on sale and are expected to sell out at many theaters. The series has already made $1.1 billion worldwide and is expected to set new records when it comes out later this month. If it didn’t have to compete against the new Star Wars movie, it would likely have been the movie of the year.
Mockingjay pt 2 stars Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Hutcherson, Malone, and Sutherland and is set to come out November 20th with a special 8pm showing on November 19th at select theaters.
