Francis Lawrence Discusses the #MockingjayPart2 Epilogue, the Sewers, the Oil Sequence and more

Francis and JoshWhile at CinemaCon Francis Lawrence spoke with Josh Horowitz about Mockingjay Part 2, discussing the progress of the post production, the epilogue, how it differs from Part 1 and so much more..

And oh Francis…I think we differ on the definition of fun. ;(

“Katniss is still messed up from the attack, and Peeta is definitely still messed up,” Lawrence, who also told us that there’s still one final “mini-reunion” epilogue scene left to shoot, said. “But because of all of this, Katniss is now fired up in a new way. In ’Mockingjay – Part 1′ she was at a real low point. She was in hiding, and sidelined a bit, and being manipulated by others. This is like, she’s taking charge again.”

“It’s thematically very different,” Lawrence continued. “[’Mockingjay – Part 1′] was about the manipulation of media and propaganda, and this one is a real war movie. Very quickly, we’re getting out from the confines of District 13 and back out into the rest of Panem, including the Capitol. It’s a very different kind of landscape.”

A landscape that includes oil and sewer water, apparently.

“There’s a sequence that fans will know about down in the sewers that’s really fun and exciting,” Lawrence teased. “It was really hard to shoot, but I think it looks great. There’s a sequence with some oil that we shot in Paris that’s looking really fun; I’m really happy with that. And the end — I have to say, the end, there’s something great about this; that there’s real closure. We’re not ending with the promise of another movie, this is the final one. You feel it, and there’s something satisfying about that. I think it’s really emotional and moving.”

Willow Shields Eliminated During Week 7 of Dancing With the Stars :(

WILLOW SHIELDSTributes, raise your three fingers high in salute to Willow Shields who was sadly eliminated last night from Week 7 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. (And we admit we shed a few tears…)  The announcement was a huge shock to not only tributes, but fans of the show in general and the judges as well.  Willow was consistently near the top of the leader board, received wonderful feedback from the judges and was steadily improving week to week.  She was also blessed with an amazing creative partner in Mark Ballas, who choreographed their dances into more than just routines, they were art on the dance floor.
