Mockingjay Set: Katniss and Gale rush to the aid of Boggs

The cast of Mockingjay has been very busy on set in Paris, France as the film scenes that are supposed to be in the Capitol. New photos have emerged from filming today (May 13) and it looks like they were filming some very intense scenes! There are photos of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) running with Gale (Liam Hemsworth) to help an injured Boggs (Mahershala Ali) after a bombing accident.

There are also some images that give us a closer look at Natalie Dormer as Cressida and Elden Henson as Pollux! Plus, in some of the photos Jennifer seems to be giving Josh an eskimo kiss on his chin! Do you think this is them in character or are they just up to their regular goofy antics? Check out all of the photos below and let us now what you think! (Thank you to Mockingjay Updates for sharing!)

    Big alarmbell!!!!!! Where are the scenes of Johanna Mason, no matter what scene?????!!!!!!!!!

    • Phillip Alan

      I don’t understand everyone’s concern for Johanna. She wasn’t in the squad because she failed her test, her being afraid of water and her test revolving around water. They probably shot everything else in a sound stage, or underground, like the books. Everyone needs to chill. (Harsher tone than I’m intending! :) )

      • ernest schoenmakers

        No, listen up, there must be a scene where Johanna has being freed by the rescue squad led by commander Boggs. If it’s shot in Atlanta then there should be stills of it if it’s done outside on location, but i think it’s all shot inside a studio, don’t you think?

        • Phillip Alan

          There was that scene a while back already! They already filmed that! Stills went online! (The scene with the guys jumping down the rope)

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Yes, those were the scenes at the Marriot Marquis Hotel in Atlanta for freeing Johanna who’s of course inside, so you won’t get to see her on stills. Then of course they take her outside but i think it’s all kept at a big distance, so won’t see anything about Johanna, frustrating, but i have to wait and see and contain my impatience.

            She’s mainly in District 13 for a lot of the book. Since we don’t have pictures of D13 (at least to my knowledge) then we don’t have pictures of Johanna. We probably won’t see her until a trailer or something. Right now, why don’t you just enjoy the pics of the other cast members while your waiting for a Johanna one? :D

          • ernest schoenmakers

            Thanks, i guess you’re right, but other people were saying that there were pics of D13, i think they’re wrong.

    AAAAAHHH HE JUST GOT HIS LEGS BLOWN OFF AND HAS TO GIVE KATNISS THE HOLO NOW!!!

  • Em1059

    Boggs death scene :( :( can´t wait to see the final results next year, so happy to see pictures everyday of the shooting of Mockingjay Pt 2 and knowing exactly what scence they´re shooting :) but it´s weird to see more of the second movie than Mockingjay Pt 1 that´s coming this year :/ I mean not even a teaser trailer by now :( but it´s something and I´m loving it!!!

    • ernest schoenmakers

      The first trailers will come out in June or July this year.

    OMG they put blue screen on his legs which means they’re staying authentic to the violence! But there should be blood on the pavement but whatevs. Looks like they’re gonna get the intense depiction of war down! Just how I pictured

    • Keven Alvarez

      There probably won’t be a lot of blood to keep the PG-13 rating :(

      • devonwhpfan

        yea probably not much, not to sound like a capitol citizen lol

      • xoxotippadee

        Yeah i dont think not getting blood and guts is anything to be too sad about. It’s been tastefully done in the movies so far. If people were going specifically to see a blood and guts movie, then the film would turn in to exactly what it’s criticizing.

        • Louise Mossige

          On the contrary. The violence should be as realistic as possible. When realistic, it’s also off-putting. Losing ones legs means a lot of bleeding. Boggs died from blood loss, for chrissakes. It’s ridiculous if they don’t show blood in this specific case.

          • devonwhpfan

            There is a fine line between showing the horror of war accurately as possible and glorifying the violence on screen. I think they will show as much as they can but certainly will not glorify it (like “kick-ass” does) and will focus on the emotional reactions. I have faith they will pull it off, after all, there have been some hard pg-13 movies. But pg-13 movies actually have the most gun violence so it just hows how useless the ratings board is, censorship ugh

          • Louise Mossige

            Definitely agree that it shouldn’t be glorified. We’re on the same page there. I don’t think showing gore in itself means glorifying (maybe because i hate seeing gore and can’t understand how anyone can enjoy that, lol) but you’re right that the emotional reactions will be important to focus on. The physical and emotional consequences of violence. That’s the most important thing (and it’s what Mockingjay is essensially about).

    OH MY GOSH THIS IS SO AMAZING!!!!
    I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY:
    Divergent infuriates me because in Mockingjay they are all wearing black and now in Divergent they were wearing black. Some of the initiates in Divergent have shaved heads just like Cressida’s shaved head. It makes me angry because I know veronica roth especially copied Mockingjay. IT MAKES ME SO ANGRY
    ANYWAYS,
    Gosh keep these pics coming!! I love them!! Omg omg omg mokcingjay is going to be perrrrrfect

    • saffron

      I don’t really think veronica roth was trying to copy suzane collins too much, it’s not like she owns the colour black or anything……

    • http://www.magicmooncat.deviantart.com/ Abigail

      What Saffron said. Veronica Roth wasn’t copying Mockingjay by making their clothes black. I don’t remember the colour of the soldiers’ outfits in Mockingjay being mentioned; it’s just a practical and low-key colour. Each faction in Divergent had a colour that represented them and black happened to be the colour for Dauntless. I hadn’t paid any particular attention to initiates with shaved heads. It’s obviously just a coincidence. Sorry for this. I just think Divergent is being done a great disfavour by being compared to The Hunger Games in either marketing of the books and movies or by people on the internet. I didn’t think of THG once whilst reading the book, except when I thought half way through ‘wasn’t this supposed to be like The Hunger Games?’

      Anyway, I LOVE these pictures. I can’t wait for this scene and all the other emotional scenes in the movies

    • xoxotippadee

      The soldiers uniform color in MJ was never mentioned actually…I found myself wondering while reading it last time if they went to war in the grey 13 jumpsuits actually. As mentioned, black is a practical military uniform color. You’re stressing out about a meaningless “copying” situation when no one seeing this movie will make that connection and have it lessen their experience of MJ at all. It’s not like both movies used fluorescent yellow uniforms or something notable like that.

  • MK

    With all these pics of pivotal scenes for the squad getting out, I’m surprised the production (or even Lionsgate) isn’t trying to shut the spread of the pics down or secure the set more. I guess technically they’re not spoilers because of the books. Maybe they’re looking at it as free promotion. Some of the shots made it on E! News too.

    • xoxotippadee

      I think it’s good for free promo buzz before anticipation for it heats up during the summer!

    • Louise Mossige

      Saving money on both promotion and security… ;)

  • saffron

    Lol josh is getting a head full of hair spray;)

  • xoxotippadee

    The blue screen on his legs :’(

  • emd

    Is anyone else wondering why Josh’s hair looks so yellow? I know it’s not a big deal and they’ll make it look better on film, etc., but it’s just bugging me…these pictures are all so great though. I’m surprised we’re seeing so many.

    • devonwhpfan

      I was wondering too but I’m afraid to get attacked by peeta fans lol. I’m guessing the cinematography is dark so on screen it will not look as bleach blonde.
