    Nice wording, although still no help in letting us know where the split is going to be.

    • Andy

      It kinda does, To me at least. It sort of implies the whole drive of the film is Katniss saving Peeta

      • Paige

        Good point. I think I also read somewhere else the directior saying the first movie focusing on “saving Peeta” so it pretty much speels out where the big momnent would probably be where they cut it.

  • Fred Guevara

    So the main plot for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 will be of Katniss trying to save Peeta.

    I have a feeling they are going to stop the movie right when they find wherever Peeta is..!!! It’s gonna annoy me to death if that’s where it will stop…

      I believe the split will come when they recover Peeta and find out he has been tracker jacked when he tries to kill Katniss.

    Mockingjay part 1: Katniss saving Peeta …. Part 2: Trying to defeat the capitol¿? sounds good to me. Cant wait to see that split.

    • Kris Broyles

      Goodness. I hope no one who hasn’t read the book sees this comment. Spoiler alert anyone??? Lol but yeah, I think you’re probably right. And I’m really going to hate that lol.
