Francis Lawrence and Nina Jacobson Talk ‘Mockingjay’ with LA Times’ Hero Complex

FrancisLAHeroComplexMag

Francis Lawrence was recently interviewed by the LA Times’ Hero Complex team, discussing the franchise and shooting both Mockingjay films.  The article has some great excerpts from Francis, who shed some light on filming certain scenes from Mockingjay – Part 1.

On Jennifer portraying Katniss’ failed attempts at “acting” in the propos:

“She was very good at it,” director Francis Lawrence recalled of his star’s ability to turn in an intentionally lousy performance. “We had a bunch of variations, but we didn’t want to go too far. Some were really broad and funny but not quite tonally right for the movie…. It was a nice couple of days of laughter on set.”

Francis also discussed the expansion of President Coin’s character in the films plus Julianne Moore’s interpretation:

“Julianne had a few ideas on how to play her,” Lawrence said. “There was a quiet strength; that was one of the big things that she wanted, so you’ll notice that Coin speaks sort of softly. There’s, I guess you would say, a warmth that you might not get from her in the book that Julianne wanted to bring.”

Francis spoke highly of Mockingjay‘s story, saying, “I think quite honestly this book and these two movies are what give meaning to the whole series.”

Francis and Nina

Nina Jacobson also chimed in on Mockingjay‘s impact and Katniss’ character, stating, “People relate to her…. I’m moved by the degree to which Katniss embodies the ability of one person no matter how flawed, how complicated [to] make an enormous impact just by doing the right thing when given the choice.”

Nina further went on to address the frequently asked question regarding the decision to split the book into two movies.

“A lot happens in the ‘Mockingjay’ book, and to try to cram it all into one movie, I think we would have never had the time to spend with the relationships and with the characters.

What we’ve tried to preserve from Suzanne’s books is a sense of a story, which is at every turn informed by the trials and tribulations of these characters,” Jacobson said. “I think Francis has proven extraordinary at doing that and being able to balance … spectacle and intimacy. It’s great to try to hold on to real human experience as much as possible.”

I cannot praise Francis and Nina enough.  They both just get it.

New Stills and Quotes from ‘Empire’s’ Feature on ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1′

Empire magazine Subscriber's cover Empire Magazine’s  December 2014 issue featuring The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 has hit newstands and now we have some fantabulous images and quotes from the article to share with you.

Empire President Snow

Donald Sutherland on the “evilness” of President Snow.

“Evil? I don’t think Snow is evil…He’s an oligarch. Lyndon Johnson didn’t think he was evil. He’s a war criminal. Putin absolutely doesn’t think he’s evil. Nobody thinks they’re evil.” This is a bit heavier than intended, but okay, evil doesn’t think it’s evil, yet that doesn’t make it any less evil. Snow is just a man doing his job as best he can…He’s at the end of his life. He’s looking for someone he can groom for that job and the only person he’s found is Katniss Everdeen, but she won’t be able to do the job. So it becomes a fight. But it’s a chess game… He wants to live forever to fight Katniss.. But he can’t.”

Elizabeth Banks on the role Effie plays in Mockingjay:

“Oh, she is very unhappy.  It’s so sad. The revolution has ruined Effie’s wardrobe.. She’s still pretty damn fabulous, but she has literally one wig and one outfit. Essentially, I’m taking the role of Fulvia. Fulvia’s sort of Plutarch’s [Philip Seymour Hoffman] right hand in [the novel]. Rather than introduce another new character, Effie takes that role…”

Lots more after the jump! Continue Reading »

#MockingjayPart 1 Sets New Record for 2014 Advance Ticket Sales

Mockingjay Choice 36

Well the film isn’t even out and Mockingjay Part 1 is all ready breaking records! Deadline is reporting this morning that the film has set the new record for Advance Ticket Sales for 2014 for both Fandango and MovieTickets.com! Mockingjay Part 1 first day sales were high enough to topple Divergent and Guardians of the Galaxy which were the previous record holders for Fandango and MovieTickets.com respectively.

Futhermore, it is being reported that Mockingjay Part 1 sales are right on par with Catching Fire‘s at the same point!

Looks like the odds are definitely in our favor for a potential record setting opening? We’ll keep our fingers crossed!

Fansite Exclusive: New #Mockingjay Part 1 TV Spot: “Peeta”

Screenshot (501)Tributes we are very honored to be one of The Hunger Games Fansites asked to debut this amazing and gut-wrenching new TV Spot for Mockingjay Part 1, simply entitled Peeta.

Warning…if you don’t have a tissue handy, you may want to grab one before watching this…

It is our humble opinion that Lionsgate’s goal is to slowly kill us before the film even hits theaters. How will we handle a 2 hour film, when we can’t even get through a 30 second TV spot without tearing up?

“How will this end…no one can survive this…”

Peeta certainly got that one right. :*(

Be sure to share your thoughts and get a group hug in the comments.

See the New #MockingjayPart1 TV Spot “Courage” that Debuted During the World Series

Screenshot (475)
We got word last night that a new Mockingjay Part 1 TV spot “Courage” (#4) hit the airwaves last night during the World Series. This latest spot features brief glimpses of new footage and lines from Haymitch (“We’re still in the game Katniss…”) and Katniss (“Fire is Catching…”). Take a look!

The “We’re still in the game…” line from Haymitch is a very interesting one, as in the book it is actually spoken by Katniss to Haymitch in reference to Peeta. (p.78, Mockingjay). This is during their conversation when Katniss confronts Haymitch on why he did not rescue Peeta, and how they both broke their deal to keep him safe.

“So, go ahead. Just say it.”
“I can’t believe you didn’t rescue Peeta.”
“I know, he replies.”

“Now you say it,” I tell him.
“I can’t believe you let him out of your sight that night,” says Haymitch.

“He’s not dead yet, Katniss.”
“We’re still in the game.” I try to say this with optimism, but my voice cracks.
“Still in. And I’m still your mentor.”

So, why the switch of the line to Haymitch? And is it even in reference to this passage from the book? We’ll have to wait just a few more weeks to find out!
