District 14 Ponders Possible Splitting Points for ‘Mockingjay’ Movies
Amanda Bell of the District 14 column over at NextMovie has written up a list of possible points in which the Mockingjay movies could be split. SPOILERS AHEAD!
Peeta, the Messenger
There’s a moment in “Mockingjay” when the Capitol presents their new prisoner Peeta Mellark to plea for the rebels to discontinue their dangerous revolutions. They’ve been holed up in District 13 and filming anti-Capitol propaganda videos in the districts, and they’ve already experienced the fallout from one ill-fated trip to District 8.
When Peeta’s first appearance on Capitol TV doesn’t work, the government tries again, this time with a Peeta shown to be savagely beaten. Peeta — obviously scripted — nixes the diplomacy and addresses Katniss directly in the interview. Katniss rightly interprets this as a direct warning to District 13 that an attack is imminent. The group dives lower into the holding and the attack indeed begins. The sound of those bombs dropping upon the rebels’ stronghold sure would leave us trembling and ravenous for resolve.
Deadly Rescue Mission
Katniss takes a hit on one of her propos missions for District 13, and when she wakes up in the hospital, she gets some troubling news: Gale and others have been sent on a rescue mission to retrieve Peeta and Finnick Odair’s love Annie. It’s a dangerous ordeal. Katniss faces the reality that she may lose not one but both of the boys she cares about, and there’s nothing she can do to stop it … Scary, scary!
