It’s been nearly a month since the very first Mockingjay- Part 1 trailer was released. After what has felt like a drought, brand new promotional posters debuted
In his latest interview with Entertainment Weekly, Francis Lawrence
Entertainment Weekly chatted with the director of the two
Ok Tributes, we got our very own mystery photo
They all look so great!
these are amazing! despite most of them being low quality or super far shots, we get to see so much.
i wonder why Finnick’s weapon is so short? the Capitol window displays are FANTASTIC. the amount of platinum Josh’s hair is freaking me out, i wish fans wouldn’t have complained about him not being blonde enough. Liam (i almost called him Gale, he looks so much the part) looks like he was always meant to wear that costume. Natalie looks freaking perfect! and of course, Jennifer is glorious as ever as Katniss. in the shot above the Panem posters, with the tresses in her face, i completely forgot she’s wearing a wig. replicates her styling in the first movie.. hope it’s that convincing in the film itself.
so much to love. <3
I think Finnick’s weapon is shorter because they’ll be in tighter spaces with more people like the sewers, so it’s probably easier and safer and more practical for it to be shorter in length.
that very well could be it! nice deducing there.
wow Katniss has the multicolored/multi-fuctioning arrows!
and looks like Gale has a crossbow!
Ahhhh cant wait to see those things in action!
OMG! Peeta’s hands are tied up!!!!
OMG! It almost seems as if we are getting closer to the release. I can’t believe how awesome the costumes and window display look. K’s arrows,P’s handcuffs,G’s crossbow, and everybody’s protective gear.
it looks like its going to be another great film.
I wonder if the device that Josh and Jennifer are holding in their hands, in the last 2 pics is the Holo?
I think it is! And it’s in the first pic too
I want stills of JOHANNA MASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The propaganda posters are cracking! They’re so similar to the ones from Stalinism or Nazism, a boy with a banner, the slogan ‘In Panem we trust’, the emblem of Capitol reminds me the one of the third Reich (this eagle), I’ve thrills!!!
Hello again, i recall when i was in Warschau, the townhall was a Stalinistic building (sugarpie) and i talked to some inhabitants over there who told me that they disliked it.
hah its Warsaw )in English= and rlz iąm Polish and i can we are rlz dislike it but as a historian i can onlz saz that zou should check Uncle Sam banners from World War II thez look similar and the titles are simillar ===> the propaganda is always propaganda, the difference is only the purpouse
Yeah it all has the same idea behind it, but there’s one thing i don’t get, that is if Peeta’s been rescued by Katniss’ team then you should see Johanna too and maybe Enobaria, wouldn’t you say?
Katniss wasnt there for his rescue! These scenes are from the end when the war happens in capitol.
You’re missing the point here, i never said that, i was talking about the team that came to the rescue of Peeta and Johanna from the Capitol, so where is that scene?
My point is that that isn’t what they are filming here, that’s a completely different location…you don’t get behind the scenes photos from every scene of a movie before you see the movie. You need to calm down and be patient about it, man.
I think you don’t understand what i’m trying to say. You said it yourself in an earlier comment that the rescue scenes were done a long time ago in Atlanta, but you weren’t sure of it. Well i can tell you that i haven’t seen anything of it in Atlanta or Paris. Maybe they did shoot the scenes in Berlin, idk.
it cant be rescue scenes because Katniss and Finnick didnt take part in them, more there is no BOGS who was commanding the rescue squad.
So you’re telling me that there is no rescue scene in the movie?
These are not actual movie stills from the film, these are just paparazzi and fan pictures from the set.
No, there definitely is! They have previously filmed a huge portion in Atlanta. Francis Lawrence said that they are finishing shooting the rescue scene near the end of the shoot (early July).
Then why aren’t there any stills of it taken by fans or Paparazzi, if it is all mainly outdoor in Atlanta?
CONTAIN SPOILER!!!!!! —————————>Johanna didnt pass soldier exam soi she didnt take part in Capitol fight and thez didnt rescue Enobaria and she stays in captive in SNows hands to the end of war. And Peeta was sended by COin to make troubles not to help :O CUZ coINT WANTED kATNISS DEAD :O
Then where are the scenes of the rescue squad led by commander Bogs here in Paris or Atlanta or maybe Berlin?
ah and that building is called The Pallace of Culture and Science and same are berelly in all old Red capitols
Thanks, i’m Dutch and we use the German name. I remember that day that the townhall roof wasn’t visible because of the fog.
I get the feeling Annie is going to get slightly more scenes in the films.
I hate that.
It just confirms the fact I am going to sob like a baby in the theatre.
Me too! i hope Finnick and Annie dont get any of their parts from the book cut, they are so cute.
Has anyone else got chills? I am soooooo excited!!!! These photos are awesome the sets and costumes look amazing can not wait – the countdown is on!
MORE PICS HERE:
Thanks for the nice pics, but do you know about any stills of District 13 where Johanna is in?
I don’t, I’m guessing it’ll be hard to obtain since Johanna scenes are mostly indoors & indoors are difficult to obtain, whereas these pics are outdoors.
Thanks, but i want stills of Johanna and Enobaria!!!!!!!!!!They all have forgotten about Jena Malone, frustrating, like she doesn’t exist.
I like the costumes but I hope they also have a separate mockingjay suit for the other propos!
did Finnick’s trident have any explosives or some technology like Katniss’s arrows?
It says in the book at it has a lot of cool features but the only one specified is that he can throw it and push a button on him that makes it return to him automatically. I had the same thought that one feature could be that it explodes too, but stabbing someone and then making them explode isnt really very PG13 so i doubt they’ll go for that.
I wonder how they’ll deal with all the blood and violence in the last 100 pages of the book while keeping it emotional but viewable? There’s so many terrible violent things that happen to the team…
oh that’s so cool thanks for responding! Yea I have been wondering how they will stay true to the horrors of war and not give it that movie quality. While lizard mutts may be fictional, totalitarian regimes and violent battles are not. Lord of the Rings was PG13 and showed decapitations and a fair amount of blood, although mostly bloodless deaths. My guess is they’ll show blood on uniforms and clothing of capitol citizens and on the ground but not focus on the actual wounds in detail, and for the absolute grittiest parts (you guys know what I’m talking about) they’ll cut right to Katniss’s complete and horrific reaction which is more tragic than seeing fake blood anyway.
Yeah for the major deaths i definitely picture seeing katniss’s reaction instead of gore. I really hope they keep that moment from where finnick dies and she sees his life flash before his eyes, that was such a beautiful touch in the book.
Yea me too! I think that might be why Stef Dawson is on set! They might be filming the scene as if she’s with him!
That is exactly why the movies should have been rated R. Catching Fire had to be changed with the violence they had to make it IMDB PG-13 official. It was originally filmed as an R-rated film for violence and language. When Gloss was shot by Katniss in the Cornucopia spin attack in Catching Fire, the effect was originally to have an arrow go through his head, with lots of blood, and then die. I am sad that the series is not R-rated because it means the books could have been better adapted. Gary Ross was not the right Director either. Francis Lawrence is amazing, did outstanding on Catching Fire, and I can’t wait to see how he plays on the Mockingjay portion of the series on the big screen!
But I am definitely not saying that the weren’t good movies….except for that damn shaky-cam by Ross in the first film!
But Francis had also scenes with shaky cam where you couldn’t see the faces of the cast very well, don’t blame Gary Ross for all of it, Francis has also a few scenes where he did that.
Gary did over use it but I liked what he was going for but I prefer lawerences sleeker and more epic look. Of course when he does use shaky cam it works because it’s not overused . But I love both movies!! I expect really epic sprawling shots of the war
Anyone about the filming location of District 13 in Paris????????
They have not released any, and they probably will not until this summer because the District 13 scenes for Part 1 were shot and Atlanta, and District 13 scenes for Part 2 are BEING shot now in Paris, but a majority of those scenes for Part 2 take place indoors(Paris). Part 2′s outdoor scenes are in mostly Atlanta, and very little Paris.
I know all that, but why aren’t there any stills of D13 or Johanna in Atlanta then, cause over there they were outdoor scenes?
So excited!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to see the action scenes.
Maybe you know about any stills or the filming location of District 13 in Paris?
those storefront displays though.
Haha I love the china plate dress in the shop window! It seems so Capitol-esque. I wonder if anyone would actually wear it. I love the look of the cast in Paris. I wonder when we’ll see Katniss’s Mockingjay suit, or do you all think this is it?
I haven’t got a clue but do you know about any stills of District 13 and the filming location of D 13 in Paris, i know i asked this many times but no one seems to react so please do you know anything about it?
I’ve seen you asking about that a few times but I don’t personally know anything about it. Where did you hear about D13 filming in Paris? I haven’t actually been keeping up with details for a while. My guess would be there aren’t any stills at the moment or it isn’t easily accessible to the paparazzi
That’s the problem about D13, i know it’s filmed in Paris but not easy accessible because it might be indoor mainly.
All johannas scenes are in 13 and mainly inside hon, you’re probably not going to see any of her for a while. If there were pictures i’m sure this website would post them, so you’re looking in the right place. Just be patient. You dont need to hound everyone that comments.
I cant wait to see the china plate dress get shot out haha that is going to be such a stunning visual!
This looks amazing can´t wait for the results in Mockingjay Pt 2 next year but I totally need the trailer of Mockingjay Pt 1 soon !!!
WHERE IS THE MOCKINGJAY ARMOR?!?!?
I wouldn’t have a clue but i’m still frustrated concerning D13 that there are no stills or videos about it, i mean still nothing about my Johanna!!!!!!!!!
It worries me of how much you are obsessed with johanna
Yes, i am but then explain to me where is the scene about the rescue of Peeta and Johanna from the Capitol?
They already filmed that scene months ago in the hotel from Atlanta. They got pictures too
No, there aren’t any pictures cause if it were then it would be on this website, wouldn’t you say?
The pictures were posted MONTHS ago…
No, it’s not true otherwise you should’ve seen Johanna on these pictures, so i don’t know where you get this from.
Ok. THEY FILMED HER RESCUE SCENE BACK IN THE ATLANTA HOTEL BUT KEPT EVERYTHING TOP-SECRET! WE ONLY GOT PICTURES AND VIDEOS OF THE RESCUERS REHEARSING THE SCENE. WE DIDNT SEE JENA MALONE BECAUSE THEY DIDNT ALLOW ANYONE IN THE HOTEL AT THE TIME!!! HER RESCUE SCENE IS NOT VEING FILMED IN PARIS OR GERMANY!
Ok, thanks, then they filmed it in the Marriot Marquis Hotel in Atlanta in top-secret. And in Berlin and Paris everything is also indoor for Johanna’s scenes, so nobody can get through it.
Yes exactly what I’ve been trying to say.
when they went to the capitol she didnt use a Mockingay Armor because she was a normal soldier…. anyway it should be in thise scenes as Cresida ask Katniss to wear it when they went to the streets before they got into trap.
Man… I need to read the book again
maybe but you have right thats the scenes where she should have armor on herself because they wanted to film a new propagand movie and they went into trap
but remember thats movie not book and it can have some differences
Nope, when they film that propo before Boggs is taken out, she says her mockingjay armor is backin a pack at camp. It’s accurate to the book.
yea true my bad i reed the boook really long time i checked that and you have wright. my bad
Yeah I guess
These look amazing!!! I am soo excited!! Has anyone else noticed Peeta’s hands are tied?? I can’t wait any longer, I NEED A TEASER OR EVEN BETTER A TRAILER!!
why Gale is wearing a crossbow???? He should have a big, strong and heavy bow,,, and how he gona reload quick as he doing it at the District 8. Reloading crossbow is so long but maybe Beetee improve it. It looks greate but this crossbow dont match to the rest.
I love all the store fronts!!!!!! Very bizzare but very capitol! I can imagine Effie wearing all of them. I cannot wait to see the final product that they do to an already beautiful city!
I could be wrong but the crossbow almost looks like a regular bow attached to a gun. It might be a unique design for the movie so he’ll have his gun on his shoulder and holding his bow and could quickly connect them and BAM have a sick looking weapon! This doesn’t look like it’s the case but that would be awesome!
I am SO curious why Stef/Annie is at this location…i wonder if they are filming the rescue scenes here too? But werent those done a long time ago in like Atlanta or something? Hmmmm…she’s supposed to be back in 13 during the capitol takeover…
Exactly my point but no one’s talking about it, odd. The rescue scenes of Peeta and Johanna, where are they? cause i never heard of it when the cast&crew were still in Atlanta and now here in Paris you don’t hear about it either. So again do you know about any rescue scene?
Nvm Annie’s part is being filmed completely different from the squad, my mistake.
Doesn’t matter, i hope this time you read my question right, so i ask you again, is there any rescue scene, i mean the rescue squad led by commander Boggs to free Johanna from the Capitol imprisonment here in Paris or Atlanta cause this is a scene that starts i guess outside the Capitol, so any fan or Paparazzi must have seen it wouldn’t you agree?
they are perfect !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! kisses to argentina
