So I’m over here just like I hope I surviveMockingjay Part 1 to see Mockingjay Part 2, but from the looks of the latest full length trailer, I won’t.
This is it folks, it what we get. The final and only full length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and frankly I could live off of it for the rest of my life because the movie might kill me. Amiright?! No silly little teaser for us, friends, we are in the big leagues now.
In this 1 minute and 47 seconds, we are walked through Katniss’s new world after the games in District 13 by the Mockingjay herself. The trailer opens with Katniss’s heart-wrenching words “I never wanted any of this, I never wanted to be in the games. I just wanted to save my sister, and keep Peeta alive,” to which the great and powerful President Snow replies “Miss Everdeen, it’s the things we love most that destroy us.”.
DEAD. I AM DEAD, but alive enough to break it down into Fangirl sobs below:
The “OMG THAT’S KATNISS BUT I NEED TO KEEP IT COOL” sob: You know, the one you tried to hold in the minute the Lionsgate Logo flashed on the screen and you hear Katniss’s voice, the one that you last heard a hundred years ago when Catching Fire came out. “I never wanted any of this….” J Law’s voice echoes deep in your soul. Oh good Lord, keep yourself together! We are 2 seconds in, and I’m already losing it.
The “Katniss and Prim. Katniss. and. Prim” Sob: I’m not really sure what to say about this part of the trailer. Mostly because I can’t get any words out, only tears. This part of the trailer will leave give you the kind of heartache you would not wish on your worst enemy. I just wish everything could be ok.
The “Effie just shattered my heart into a million fangirl pieces” sob: I was doing ok, attempting to hold it together after that Prim thing, taking it all in. Until Effie had to show up on my friggin screen without her signature glam, but in District 13 attire and no makeup, looking hopeless, pinning the Mockingjay pin on Katniss like Cinna used to do. LIKE WTF?! I can’t deal, and I don’t want to. GIVE INTO THE PAIN!
The “Gale Has Changed” Sob: Gale has been working side by side with Beetee to create weapons to rival The Capitol’s in battle, he’s changed a little and will change even more. They developed a super advanced and destructive bow just for Katniss. It basically can blow your house up in one shot, and seeing Gale shooting it, becoming the Gale we have all been dreading he will soon become, cheese and rice, I just want everyone to be ok!
The “OMFG IT’S PEETA!” Sob: This is the sob that leaves you unable to speak breathe or function. Just the sight of Peeta on that screen, telling the rebels to give up, just to see his face and the pain in his eyes!! HE”S ALIVE! And when Katniss realizes it with a desperate hope in her voice, oh man. YES KATNISS! SAVE HIM! BRING PEETA BACK!
The “Katniss Mad, Me Mad!” Sob: Yes Katniss yes! When Katniss demands President Coin and Plutarch rescue Peeta from The Capitol immediately or they can find another Mockingjay……if my tears could fist bump eachother, they would.
The “Finnick. Oh my gosh Finnick. FINNICK!!” sob: Just the sight of his face, Finnick’s sad eyes looking at Katniss. Remeber his words. “It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.” aaaannnnnnddd I’m done for. Officially not surviving this movie.
The “Katniss is crying and things are blowing up nothing will ever be ok again” sob: The war. It’s everywhere, bombs, fire, devastation, Gale holds Katniss back as she fights to run into the warzone, her eyes full of tears. Haymitch takes Katniss into his arms, more bombs…… We never wanted any of this either Katniss.
The “Katniss crying again, but in the rain which makes me cry harder” sob: Katniss crying. In the rain. Looking Hopeless and desperate. NOBODY MAKES KATNISS CRY! NO ONE! NOOO OOOONNNEE!!
The “Take that you !?hvu%jhbj&vjhv!ut#kjgi2h?gfh$@hgvj!” sob: Katniss and Gale watch as two Capitol hovercrafts fly towards them, Katniss raises her bow of death and shoots! BAM!!!!! The Arrow explodes the hovercraft into flames, knocking out the other in it’s fiery path! It’s our one moment of revenge in the whole trailer, our one moment where we see that Katniss may actually be able to to do this. That the Mockingjay does live. That we may survive……
And finally the “Welp I don;t even know what life is I’m drunk” sob: The only medicine for such an emotional rollercoaoster is wine. So drink up straight until November people. I know I will be drinking (lots) and saying my goodbyes (seriously this movie is going to kill me). The Mockingjay Lives my friends, but I will not.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 starring Jennifer Lawrence hits theaters November 22, 2014 but advance ticket sales begin October 29th so mark your calendars Tributes!
Gale and Cressida help Katniss take on her destiny
While filming in Paris, Liam Hemsworth & Natalie Dormer spoke about their characters:
In Mockingjay, it’s all about new alliances. District 13 may be home base for our District 12 heroes, but the real action takes place on the front lines throughout a politically tumultuous Panem.
[On Gale & Katniss’ friendship] “It’s a fresh relationship because they are sharing the experience of being strangers in this new place with new people and a new situation,” said director Francis Lawrence.
[combining the new with the old] Come dusk, that connection felt more sibling-like than that of a movie star ensemble. The team had decamped from the set to their circle of temporary trailers at a nearby soundstage, but no one seemed eager to shut his or her door. Talk of hitting a cool new Parisian lounge ricocheted among the cast as they returned their costumes to the wardrobe truck.
[Hemsworth on Dormer’s first day] “We’re just talking about how we beat you up on your first day on the set. It’s the new cast initiation,” said Hemsworth with a straight face, as he passed her a fork and spoon. Dormer smirked and replied, “That’s right. Liam may have a charming smile, but he’s so mean.”
