Should Hunger Games Fans Expect Big Changes Or Surprises From Mockingjay?

18 August 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As fall approaches, Hunger Games fans have the first part of the feature adaptation of Mockingjay to anticipate. The choice to split the book into two parts likely has fans wondering just how closely these films will stick to the source material. From what producers say, expect some surprises, but no major changes. Wait, how would book fans be surprised by anything if the movies didn't include any major changes? The situation isn't quite as contradictory as it sounds. EW says director Francis Lawrence worked closely with screenwriter Peter Craig, producer Nina Jacobson and Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins to work some new elements into the story that should come as a surprise to book fans. But they aren't altering the core story -- the plot or characters -- just filling out the world to "show scenes that could have been happening at different times in the book," according to »

'Mockingjay' director: Parts 1 and 2 will have 'two distinct stories'

18 August 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Over the course of two Hunger Games films, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has been unflinchingly confident. But in Mockingjay – Part 1, the teen heroine suffers a bout of age-appropriate angst as she reluctantly becomes a rebel leader.

“It’s a very confusing, conflicted, complicated time for Katniss,” says director Francis Lawrence, who also directed 2013’s Catching Fire. “Having gone through the games one more time and having lost Peeta and having been run through the wringer, she’s even more damaged. So you find her in a more agitated place. She’s distraught, confused, angry.”

8 August 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate has released new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 posters focusing on key members of the resistance in their home base, District 13: President Coin (Julianne Moore), Finnick (Sam Claflin), Plutarch (Philip Seymour Hoffman), Beetee (Jeffrey Wright), Effie (Elizabeth Banks), and Haymitch (Woody Harrelson).  I like these character posters because while these are the members of the resistance, they're also behind cold, grey walls.  It's a signal that while the resistance has a headquarters, they don't have a sanctuary. Hit the jump to check out the hi-res The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 posters.  The film opens November 21st, and also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland.

First Official Trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1!

28 July 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Sdcc has wrapped and given us plenty to chew on over the last few days, and now things are starting to pop up online that attendees were able to see already.  As promised, Lionsgate used the venue to release the first real trailer for the new Hunger Games film, Mockingjay Part 1 and now they've debuted it online for the whole world to see.  Come inside to check out the first real look at the film. 

I've loved the marketing for this film so far.  The teaser posters and videos so far have been very tongue-in-cheek, acting as "in universe" propoganda and planting the seeds of rebellion.  It's been genius and has engaged me more into this upcoming film than most marketing campaigns.  Today, however, brings us a real trailer with the first footage from the movie: 

Catching Fire impressed me a great deal.  While I wasn't too keen on the »
