  • The Hunger Games

    How long will they stay in Paris?

    • Justin L.

      They will be in Berlin for about 2 1/2 more months! Almost trailer time!

  • Raymond

    I’m studying abroad right now and ironically I’ll be the closest I’ve ever been to Hunger Games filming! :D

  • ernest schoenmakers

    Is Jena Malone also part of the cast going to Europe?

    • Berry

      Johanna isn’t part of these scenes, sadly. ; (

      • ernest schoenmakers

        Blast, maybe it’s about the battle of District 2 where Johanna is no part of it cause she had a breakdown and didn’t pass the military examen, idk. I hope she will be in another battle against the Capitol. Well, here’s a picture of poor Johanna:

          SAME! i want more Johanna! She’s like my only fave character that survives haha

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Thanks dude, but can anyone answer my first question on this page? PleasePlease Please this is important to me!!!!!

          • Demi

            Im sure there will be at least a couple of premiers in Europe, Paris especially. I think last year they all went there and London. And im sure Jena Malone will be to all of them because even if in the book she comes in later. There was an interview with her and Finnick and she talked about being worried to act tortured, im sure Part 1 will be the movie her and Peeta are shown in the Capitol

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Thank you so much for this reply cause i want to see my favourite and beautiful actress on set or on the red carpet. Paris is only 500 km from my home, so i can go by car or train. I want an autograph signed by her in my HG-book and a photograph together of her on my cellphone. Well here’s a pretty picture of Jena Malone:

    • EchelonDude

      Wow you sure do like Jena Malone haha. Understandable though, she’s awesome :D

      • ernest schoenmakers

        You wouldn’t know the half of it how awesome she is, that girl is a real refreshment of Hollywood along with Jennifer Lawrence.

    • Justin L.

      Yes. Jena Malone is minor in that part of the book, but she will still take the journey with rest of the cast during a few scenes, says Producers Nina Jacobson and John Kilik.

      • ernest schoenmakers

        No,NO,NO, i want a lot of screentime for Johanna Mason otherwise she gets angry and btw. according to the book she’s an important tribute to Katniss.

        • Justin L.

          Yeah. I agree. When I said she is a minor character, I meant most of the Capitol fight scenes. According to Nina Jacobson(Producer), she has a lot of District 13 scenes because Francis wants to stay true to the book!

          • ernest schoenmakers

            I really hope so, cause Johanna is my favourite victortribute and i know she was deemed unfit to battle the Capitol, but Jena Malone is my number 1 actress so that’s why i react like this. Here’s a picture of feisty Johanna Mason:

          • Justin L.

            That’s cool! I like Jennifer Lawrence alot too! She’s an extremely inspiring person for me! I will keep you up to date as I find out more. Check out my channel on YouTube called “MovieTalkers”. We have early movie reviews and Hunger Games Mashups made by me and my friend. I will post 4 good quality behind the scenes VIDEOS by tomorrow of Mockingjay! Tell your friends about our channel!

          • ernest schoenmakers

            You’re the coolest dude, i like Jennifer Lawrence too, she’s number 2 to me. I’m also a big cinephile and for the first time i’m reading a booktrilogy, but actually i’m only a moviegoer but a big one. And thanks for the information. The world would be a dull place without movies.

          • Justin L.

            No problem! I’ll keep you updated and try and post those videos on my channel by tonight! They show Peacekeepers fighting, a smoke bomb, the Star Squad, and alot more!

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Pretty awesome!!!!!!!!!!

  • ernest schoenmakers

    Can anyone tell me if there’s a premiere of Mockingjay part 1 in Europe?

    • Justin L.

      There sadly enough will not be a premiere in Europe except for possibly early Lionsgate screenings, just a few weeks before it hits theaters. (Nov. 21, 2014.) Since they only started shooting in Berlin a couple of weeks ago, Lionsgate reaffirms, “There will not be a premiere at Cannes, because of our packed schedule with shooting back to back.” states Director Francis Lawrence.
