We are only one week away from the digital release of Mockingjay: Part 2 and three weeks away from the Blu-ray/DVD release. Are you excited, tributes? Clips from the multitude of extras we will be getting have been trickling in from different news outlets recently in anticipation of the release. Today, Teen.com and CraveOnline shared two new behind the scenes clips.
The first, shared by Teen, features Jena Malone talking about how she was very willing to shave her head to accurately portray Johanna after she is rescued from the Capitol.
Our friends at QuarterQuell were kind enough to post this video on their Tumblr for tributes outside the US to view.
The second clip shows some great footage of the making of the sewer scene featuring the lizard mutts. It appears that CraveOnline has not made the clip embeddable, but you can see the clip on their website here.
Mockingjay: Part 2 is out digitally on March 8, 2016 and on Blu-ray/DVD on March 22, 2016.
Thought you had seen every scene from the first Hunger Games movie? Well, think again! Thanks to POPSUGAR, we have a new deleted scene that expands on the “boy with the bread” story.
Aside from a flashback scene where it happens, it’s not really addressed in the first movie. But actually, it was — it’s just in a deleted scene that is only now becoming available with the release of The Hunger Games: The Four Film Collection, which comes out on March 8 on Digital HD and March 22 on Blu-ray/DVD. We have the exclusive look at the clip, where Katniss finally gets to say something about the bread incident to Peeta — it’s sort of a thank you, even though she tries to close herself off with the admission. And you know how that turned out.
We can’t embed the clip, but you can head on over to POPSUGAR to watch!

Elizabeth Banks is turning bad! Well, just for one movie at least. Elizabeth has reported that she will be playing Rita Repulsa in the new Power Rangers movie. As a 90’s kid, i’m SO excited about this!
The actress has signed on to star as the villain in Power Rangers, Lionsgate’s big-screen take on the 1990s kids television show,The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Dean Israelite, who helmed the time-travel found-footage movieProject Almanac, is on board to direct the project, which is being produced by Saban Brands’ Haim Saban and Brian Casentini as well as Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. Allison Shearmur will executive produce.
A quintet of relative newcomers — RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Naomi Scott and Dacre Montgomery — are playing the teens who, infused with powers, form a colorful team who must stop the world from being conquered.
Banks will play the classic Power Ranger character Rita Repulsa, an alien witch who has designs on the planet.
As if Sam Claflin didn’t charm us and consequently destroy our emotions enough as Finnick Odair, he’s back at it again in the upcoming romantic drama Me Before You. The film is based on a 2012 novel of the same name written by Jojo Moyes and also stars Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke. Check out the official trailer below.
Oftentimes you find love where you least expect it. Sometimes it takes you where you never expected to go…
Louisa “Lou” Clark (Clarke) lives in a quaint town in the English countryside. With no clear direction in her life, the quirky and creative 26-year-old goes from one job to the next in order to help her tight-knit family make ends meet. Her normally cheery outlook is put to the test, however, when she faces her newest career challenge. Taking a job at the local “castle,” she becomes caregiver and companion to Will Traynor (Claflin), a wealthy young banker who became wheelchair bound in an accident two years prior, and whose whole world changed dramatically in the blink of an eye. No longer the adventurous soul he once was, the now cynical Will has all but given up. That is until Lou determines to show him that life is worth living. Embarking together on a series of adventures, both Lou and Will get more than they bargained for, and find their lives—and hearts—changing in ways neither one could have imagined.
The film also stars Charles Dance (“The Imitation Game”), Jenna Coleman (“Dr. Who”), Matthew Lewis (the “Harry Potter” films), Vanessa Kirby (“About Time”), Stephen Peacocke (“Hercules”), Brendan Coyle (“Downton Abbey”) and Oscar nominee Janet McTeer (“Albert Nobbs,” “Tumbleweeds”).
You’re probably going to want to take any left over tissues you had after Mockingjay: Part 2 when you go to see this! We can’t wait to see it.
Jojo Moyes also posted an extended trailer on her Facebook page.
