Happy Hunger Games! Vol. 2, Issue 5

We’re getting close to that fevered, full court press media  and advert blitz for Mockingjay Pt. 1! Just this week several posters were released (the final movie poster is above!) as well as a video counting down to the reveal of the MJ1 trailer on Monday, September 15th!

 

These promotional posters are amazing. I love the harsh, all black motif for the character posters. These hard, cold, burnished metal Mockingjay pins in the background provide a great contrast with Katniss' Girl on Fire brand and are as stark as the blinding whiteness of the poster of Peeta, Joanna, with President Snow.

 

 

 

 

We were also graced with a screen shot from the teaser trailer!

 

 

Sam Claflin {Finnick O’dair} talked to Any Horowitz (he’s such a great interviewer!) about the final days of filming Mockingjay Pt. 2

“It was bizarre,” Claflin said. “I think I’d said goodbye, and done all my goodbyes, and I remember feeling a little sad and anxious, kind of going, I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself for the rest of my life, I’m never going to work again.”

But Claflin’s fears were put to rest, pretty much immediately.

“After I said the final goodbye, they go, oh actually we need you to come in tomorrow to fill in this pick up,” Claflin said. “So I saw everybody the next day, and then I sort of left, and kind of felt a little weird.”

To add to the awkwardness, Claflin also left a week early, before most of the stars had wrapped on the movie.

“I got out early and avoided the whole heartbreak,” Claflin told us. But he added, “It’s really sad.”

 

 

 

Recently, Elizabeth Banks took on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease)  and challenged her Mockingjay mates! Nina Jacobson also accepted the challenge and nominated Jennifer Lawrence, Jena Malone and Natalie Dormer. Francis Lawrence nominated Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Sam Claflin.

Luke Hemsworth posted the challenge video of Liam Hemsworth, who nominated Josh Hutcherson (double noms for Josh!) and Woody Harrelson:{x}
