The Hunger Games: Mockingjay will premiere nationwide on November 21
San Diego Comic-Con is essentially the Mary Poppins’ bag of goodies for nerds. Insights into future seasons and new films might wet our whistle but right now, this teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay is putting everyone over the edge.
According to BuzzFeed, the minute long trailer debuted Friday in San Diego as a part of a promotion for Samsung.
Following the immediate aftermath of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Mockingjay puts the rebellion against the Capitol in the spotlight. It follows Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) in the new territory of District 13 as she tries to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) from the Capitol and become the Mockingjay, the symbol of the revolution, the rebellion needs.
Since I saw the midnight premiere of Catching Fire, I’ve been itching to see the next film installment. Francis Lawrence took over as director for the second movie and created an adaptation that far exceeded the first film’s achievements. With Lawrence still at the helm for both parts of Mockingjay, I know the rest of Suzanne Collins’ series is in capable hands.
Though Mockingjay may be my least favorite of the trilogy, I am beyond excited for the film. From what this short clip has shown, I believe what dragged in the book will soar on screen, for it seems a solid visual picture is needed for the impact of several situations in the book.
Why am I so confident? Because in the mere seconds Jennifer Lawrence is on screen, she perfectly captured how Katniss is in the third book: frightened, out of sorts, unconfident.
This is going to be good. I just need more.
