mockingjay clip

The first official clip from the upcoming film from Mockingjay pt 2 has been released. This is the same clip that was given in advance to the people who bought their tickets in the first 24 hours of them going on sale. Fandango had set up the launch and sent out the clip. Entertainment Weekly helped with the launch while also releasing twelve stills from the movie that will be featured in this week’s edition of the magazine.

The rest of the world got to see the clip earlier today when it was released on the movie’s YouTube page, along with the social media websites. In the clip, we see Finnick return early from his honeymoon to help Katniss, Gale, and the rest of the rebels prepare for war. They are going to be known as the ‘Star Squad’ which means they will be videotaped and photographed so the other districts can see. Gale of course, is not too happy about it, but accepts his orders.

The final movie is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. It’s expected to break a lot of records and will likely be compared to the Harry Potter series in regards to success. The final movie is set to come out November 20th officially, but many theaters will have either a double feature showing on Thursday night with the final movie being shown at 8PM.

If not, there will be a special showing at 8pm on Thursday the 19th.

The movie franchise has made $1.1 billion so far and is looking to shatter records when it come out November 20th. The first part of the finale didn’t do as well as the other two movies, only making $337.1 million, but this was also true for the first half of Deathly Hallows from Harry Potter. When the second part came out, it shattered record after record. Expect this to happen when the final movie comes out.

Prim and Katniss will make you cry in new ‘Mockingjay pt 2’ trailer

mockingjay poster

It’s a big day for news from the Mockingjay front. But the biggest comes from the latest trailer that comes Lionsgate. It’s a two minute, forty five second trailer that reminds us where the whole rebellion begin. We start from the beginning of The Hunger Games and work our way through Catching Fire and the first part of Mockingjay. The story starts with Katniss volunteering as tribute for her sister, Prim, who was selected as the most unlikely candidate. Since then, it’s snowballed (pun intended) from there. The trailer ends with Katniss and Prim dancing as they tell each other that they love each other.

And cue the waterworks.

The trailer is not the only thing that was released, but also a new movie poster that sparks (yes another pun intended) emotion. It has Katniss looking forward in her war gear with a Mockingjay on her shoulder. The tag line reads ‘A creature as unquenchable as the sun’. The creature is obviously Katniss as she refuses to back down from the rebellion until Snow is taken down. That would be the reference to unquenchable. If you’ve read the book, you will know that this line is straight out of the book.

The best news though to come from Lionsgate today is the news about the pre-order of tickets. Because that November release date is right around the corner. The tickets will go on sale October 1st and if you purchase your ticket in the first 24 hours, you will get a special downloaded edition of the first part of the movie. Lionsgate and Fandango didn’t state whether or not they would have a marathon like they did for the last three movies, but it’s highly likely. We will likely find that out come October 1st when the tickets go on sale.

The trailer is likely to be shown before the Scorch Trials on Friday. The final movie of the worldwide phenomenon is set to come out November 20th. Make sure to buy your tickets on October 1st because this movie is likely to sell out quickly.

IMG_0616

There is a new app for the upcoming movie Insurgent that was released late last night through the movie’s Twitter page.

The app offers users a 3D look into the world and see what the movie will be like in 3D.

The app also offers you an exclusive clip of Four, Tris, and Caleb running from some Dauntless.

The other part of the app, called “Shatter Reality”, engulfs you into the movie as you are Subject 5 who is being observed by Jeanine to test and see if you are Divergent. You fall into the stimulation and watch a movie unfold until the end when Jeanine decides if you are Divergent or not.

The app once again sets Lionsgate/Summit apart from the rest of the movie industry as they come up with unique ways for fans to be involved in the movie.

You can see a look at the app in the slideshow.

You can get the app for Google Play or through the Apple Store. The app works best with the Google cardboard but it’s not necessary to use. And for today only, if you pre-order your tickets for Insurgent on Fandango, you can get a free Google cardboard for the app.

The second trailer for “Age of Ulton” has been released along with release of presale tickets

avengers 2

The second full length trailer for The Avengers Age of Ultron had been released through Fandango’s Twitter page.

The site released the trailer when announcing the tickets going on sale earlier today. In the trailer, we get a better understanding of the main story of the movie as Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) explains that he created the ‘Ultron’ to protect the Earth and naturally it all falls apart.

There are a lot of cool sequences with graphics and the fighting looks better than it did in the first movie. As a whole, the movie appears to look better than the first movie, but only time will be able to tell if it is better than the first movie or if it will fall victim to the sequel curse.

You can purchase your tickets now on Fandango’s website. Also, Cinemark is offering a double feature showing that will include the first Avengers movie right before the advance screening of the second movie. Both will be in X D and 3D.

The Avengers Age of Ulton is set to come out May 1st.

Third clip from “Fifty Shades of Grey” has been released

fifty shades 4

This is the third day in a row that the Today Show has released a new clip from the upcoming movie Fifty Shades of Grey. In the first clip, Christian gets some supplies from the hardware store and the second clip has Ana and Christian getting to know one another.

In today’s clip, Ana asks why Christian why he’s at her hotel and he tells her that he felt bad for leading her on. He says that he ‘doesn’t do romance’ before Ana asks him to ‘enlighten’ her to his ‘singular’ thoughts. We have seen most of this clip in the trailers, but it’s nice to see it not broken up into pieces.

You can view it by going here.

With the three clips, there are some people already talking about how the stars don’t have any chemistry on the screen. Maybe it does come off ‘awkward’ at times, but that is the beginning of Christian and Ana’s relationship. Fans of the book know that it takes some time for them to develop a relationship because of the ghosts from his past.

The tickets are available now on Fandango but you need to get your tickets fast as they are selling out at some places.

Fifty Shades of Grey stars Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, and Luke Grims and is set to come out February 13th.
