Mockingjay Movie Night #3: Sucker Punch
I admit it. I jinxed it. When I posted about Mockingjay Movie Night #2, I mentioned we’d have to wait until August to watch a ‘Finnick’ movie. It’s now August 10th and it’s starting to look like we won’t get a Finnick until the end of this month in a final blazing burst of casting news.
Meanwhile, the show must go on! For this month’s viewing, we’ve chosen a movie starring Jena Malone, who will be playing the feisty Johanna Mason in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’. We’ll host the chatroom on August 25, 2012 at 7 PM Eastern. This means you have just over two weeks to secure a copy to watch along with the staff of Mockingjay.net. Here’s a brief summary of the movie:
Locked away against her will, Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four fellow captives – outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish) – to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorki (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm).
Sucker Punch is rated PG-13 and is available for sale from Amazon for ~$10, Target for ~$13, or at Walmart for the hands-down best price of $3 (with free store pickup). If you REALLY want to get into it for movie night, you can dress up as Jena’s character Rocket!
