Only 2 days remain until Lionsgate will finally reveal the trailer for Mockingjay Part 1! Like you, the DWTC Staff is extremely excited and we each have our own ideas about what we hope to see (and what we hope they’ll keep hush hush for now). Read on to find out what we’re crossing our fingers we’ll see during the rumored 1 minute 45 second time frame.
It’s been a while since I’ve read Mockingjay so not everything is fresh in my mind, but I definitely hope they show some of the new characters in action. We’ve seen what they will look like and they have awesome posters, but hopefully we get to hear them talk and do cool stuff! As far as what I don’t want to see, I hope they don’t give any clue on where they will split the two final movies. I want to be surprised!
What do I hope to see in the 1 minute and 45 seconds that will be the Mockingjay trailer? Well, that’s easy. Peeta! I think I’ve spent long drooling over Josh Hutcherson’s portrayal of him in The Hunger Games and Catching Fire that the idea of seeing him take on a new side of Peeta is enormously exciting. Watching Peeta’s character transform and find a way back to himself was, to me, the most intriguing aspect of the book. I also hope to catch a glimpse of this new side of Katniss; to finally see the emotions she explores on the page come to life. I also love Johanna so I hope she makes a grand entrance (and I’m sure she will). What I hope they don’t show us just yet? Hm… to be honest, I don’t know where they’re going to end the first part! I would say that I wouldn’t want them to give any indication whatsoever about how the end of the book transpires, but I can’t forget that there will also be a Part 2 (hallelujah). I’m guessing that they’ll end it at the reunion, so that will leave a certain celebration for the second movie (don’t want any spoilers on my watch!)… So let’s say that what I hope they leave as a surprise for Part 1 are the on-camera confessions. They’re simply too juicy to give away just yet!
“The main person i’m hoping to see is Peeta. I know we had the promotional stills and all but I really really really want to see Peeta in the Capitol. Perhaps Johanna too. It would also be nice to get a better look at District 13!”
There is a lot I hope to see in the final trailer. Even though the general audience might find it confusing, I would love to see as many new characters as possible. They are such an important part of the story and I want to get a glimpse of them all. I also hope, as the teaser for the trailer showed, Katniss’ mental state is shown to effectively set the tone. Maybe an introduction to District 13, what’s happened since Catching Fire, and Peeta. But most importantly, I want to see the revolution being kicked into full gear. I think that’s what the public wants to see given the buildup from the first two films, and the fact that the book is often criticized for being “slow”. But unlike the anticipation for the games, there isn’t a huge event that I’m waiting for in the Mockingjay films, so I’m not worried about getting a taste of something too soon. Like any trailer, I’d like it to catch my attention and make me want more. But I’m sure anything they show is guaranteed to get that reaction from me.
Okay, here is what I hope the trailer shows: Prim being awesome, Finnick & Katniss tying knots, Finnick being emotional in a propo (but with music in the background and not dialogue, so the non-reader doesn’t know why), Buttercup chasing the beam from a flashlight, the tension between Coin and Katniss, Haymitch saying, “And that, my friends, is how a revolution dies!”, and of course — Finnick Odair in his underwear. And then it would be cool if it ended with Katniss yelling, “Fire is catching! And if we burn, you burn with us!” I know — that’s a lot for a first trailer. I have high hopes.
While I’m incredibly excited for the Mockingjay trailer to drop, I can’t decide on what I want to see in it! I love being surprised by the film in theaters. More than specific scenes, I want to see the styling and costumes of my favorite characters. I love the fashion! Also, I really want to see Annie, because she’s one of my favorite minor characters. No matter what they show, I can’t wait!
My hopes for the trailer are that it is so spectacular it leaves me speechless. Katniss and Peeta are a must see for me but only in very brief scenes as not to give anything away. I also love the rose theme and having them in the trailer would make it more dramatic just like the small teaser trailer we just received. I’d would love to see any character really but especially Finnick and Prim because I’m curious of how they will look compared to Catching Fire. Finally I’m intrigued about the layout of District 13 so would be pleased if we were also shown this.
The time has come and the trailer is near all I can think of: oh, I’m so nervous.
I love Mockingjay and see the photos are making me even more anise. My fear is … will it be as good as the book?
Seeing the first two I know how close to the book they’ve tried to keep it and I know it will be the same. However, I’m still worried.
In this trailer, our first TRUE look at the movie, I want to see Peeta. Yes, I’m usually screaming: BRING ON HAYMITCH. This time … not so much. (Okay that a small white lie, but you understand)
The Peeta I’ve grown to love (as we all have) is different this time and I know Josh is going to portray him so well (as we’ve already seen) But caring-loveable-strong Peeta has changed and seeing it for the first time is going to make it more real!
I also want to see the FIRE in Katniss and her changes (and growth) in District 13. Actually, I just want to see District 13 and see how amazingly it will look.
All in all, I want to see it all. The excitement (and the wait) has been going now since the moment the credits began to roll on Catching Fire! Now, the time has come! BRING ON HAYMITCH!
I keep going back and forth about what I want to/don’t want to see in the trailer. I’ve actually been quite happy with the “less is more” marketing scheme, Lionsgate has chosen to utilize thus far. Even though it’s odd to say that I don’t want to be spoiled since I’ve read the book more times than I can count (it’s my favorite in the series), I really don’t want to be shown too much before the film arrives. Taking that into account, I really hope they focus the trailer on the rebellion aspect and District 13 itself, I want to see Katniss of course, but also glimpses of Star Squad (including Gale and Finnick), Plutarch, Coin and most especially Effie and Haymitch. I’m sure after that short glimpse we saw in the tease that we’ll be getting at least some bits of Snow as well, but I’m actually on the fence about seeing Johanna and most especially Peeta. I really think I’d like to have them keep hijacked Peeta under wraps a bit longer. I know Josh is going to be amazing, but to me it still seems like such a huge piece to reveal this soon, but then again that could also be why they choose to do it. All I know is if we see Peeta Monday, just know I will be a weeping mushy mess. Kind of a practice run for November’s flood.
So what are you hoping to see on Monday? Is there anything you hope they keep under wraps? Let us know in the comments..
