Mockingjay Part 1 is available now on Digital HD, but for those that have to wait to watch until the Blu-ray/DVD is released, we have another BTS treat for you. The WSJ Speakeasy blog has another BTS look at Mockingjay Part 1. This time we are looking into the difficulties of filming the District 8 hospital scene, especially in the areas of makeup and playing ratings limbo. Take a look:
Mockingjay Part 1 is now available for purchase on Digital HD and will be available on Blu-ray/DVD on March 6th. Be sure to check out our Buyer’s Guide to help you make your decision of where to purchase!
Well tributes, we finally broke the #UnlockMockingjay barrier and the scene has been officially released! Prepare your heart for this beautiful scene featuring President Snow and Peeta (with a cute cameo by Snow’s granddaughter). This is the scene Donald Sutherland mentioned as one of his favorites, and that it was cut because it was not from Katniss’ perspective.
Check it out below!
Love, love, love it! But here comes my unpopular opinion, they made the right decision cutting it. Why you ask? Because it really gives away too much, especially to the non-reader. It shows Peeta’s true motivations, gives away how he was being treated, and hints at his torture and the reasons for it. It is a beautiful scene and I’m so glad we get to see it now as a deleted scene, but I think it would have given away just way too much if it was in the film. We needed to discover what was happeing with Peeta alongside Katniss. Not be shown this sidelight, so we know more than she does.
What did you think about the scene? Do you think it should have been cut? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Seeing District 12 after Catching Fire was such a heartbreaking sight, it makes us wonder if there are any interesting stories from the crew on how they got the final look of destruction we saw in the film. Thanks to ComingSoon.net, we have a small clip from a much larger documentary, giving all sorts of behind the scenes details from Mockingjay: Part 1.
The two-hour behind-the-scenes documentary The Mockingjay Lives: The Making of Mockingjay – Part 1 features never-before-seen interviews and on-set footage of the cast and crew, taking an in-depth look at the making of the filmincluding the script adaptation, location scouting, set design – including physically creating the hovercraft – casting the new characters, and bringing District 13 to life.
The documentary will be available with both the Digital HD (February 17) and Blu-ray/DVD and VOD (March 6) releases!
Treasure hunt and tweeting time tributes! We received word yesterday that President Snow would have a special message for us today via Capitol TV. Well when the video was released, an unusual hack began to occur revealing a binary code. Continue Reading »
Tributes living in China are only now just getting to see Mockingjay Part 1 in theaters, but their wait was repaid with a 3D release and this amazing new theatrical trailer!
We love how they edited this piece together, telling a story right from the start and explaining the emergence of District 13. (Our only question was why they chose to talk about the surface of District 13 being reduced to rubble while Katniss was walking through 12? Could be a bit confusing to some.) Overall it’s really put together well, with some “new” footage that wasn’t released in the previous trailers.
Yesterday our friends @PanemUpdates shared a screenshot from a BTS video that was sent out in a Roadshow Entertainment Newsletter. Fans began scouring for more as the image was of Jennifer and Josh being silly on the “choking” set of Mockingjay Part 1. Sadly the video was set to private at the time, so all we could do was sit and wait for Roadshow to kindly release it for the rest of us to view. Thankfully, we can now share this with you, and we are sure it will make you smile. Not only do you get to see Jennifer and Josh be playful in the hospital set, but we also get cute interactions between the rest of the cast as well, as they share their thoughts on working with one another.
I have to admit it made me a bit teary as I realized there’s only one scene to shoot and one more press tour to go before this all ends. It just once again makes you realize how special our cast is!
You’ll be able to see more behind the scenes footage when Mockingjay Part 1 is released on Digital HD on Tuesday and Blu-ray March 6th.
