‘Mockingjay Pt. 2′ gets FilmINK cover feature

filmink magazine

In the new September issue of FilmINK, an Australian entertainment magazine, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is featured as part of their “Women in Film” issue. No new images from the film, but there were some new interviews.

Since the Hunger Games franchise kicked off, these films – 2012’s The Hunger Games, 2013’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, 2014’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, and now The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 – have become much more than just simple movies to their loyal army of fans.  Based on Suzanne Collins’ hugely popular books, they carry messages of hope and self-determination, and stand as a plea for decency and equality in the face of oppression, with their ugly, dystopian world a frightening mirror image of our own. Their bow-and-arrow wielding heroine, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), meanwhile, has become an aspirational figurehead for young girls high on her innate strength and fierce brand of self-possession.

Francis Lawrence talks about the differences in Mockingjay & being a part of such a popular franchise:

“In terms of visuals, the final movie really expands,” director, Francis Lawrence, tells FilmInk.  “The final two films, in fact, are very different from the last stories, because there are no Hunger Games, and there’s no trip to The Capitol for training. We spend a fair amount of time in a new place in these movies which is District 13, so that’s a completely new design and a completely new location. The new environments dictate the new visuals.”

“It’s exciting, but it also adds a lot of anxiety, because you just want to make them as good as possible..”

Liam Hemsworth discusses the end of a Hunger Games era:

“I’ll miss the relationships that we’ve all built,” Liam Hemsworth tells FilmInk. “The crew has been the same pretty much since the beginning, and there are so many people who I’m really close friends with now. When we were shooting in Berlin towards the end, Jennifer and I would sit there and get quite emotional about the fact that it was coming to an end, and the fact that we wouldn’t be spending as much time with all these people. I think that’s what we’ll all miss the most. With Jennifer and [co-star] Josh [Hutcherson], we’ve been through some of the most important points of our lives together. We’ve created such a strong bond because of the things that we’ve experienced together. We can go for a big amount of time without speaking to each other, but we all know how important we are for each other and how much we shared together, and how important our friendship has become.”

And how Jennifer Lawrence felt to film the final scenes:

“Oh my God, it was awful,” the actress shrieks. “We were really crying, and then Josh and Liam and I just held each other for three hours. It was really sad. But I kept my hunting jacket, my leather jacket, and my boots, and I’m working on getting my bow back,” she laughs. “I’m not relieved that it’s finished. We’ve finished, but I don’t feel finished. I love doing these movies. I’m sad to not have them to go back to. And as for acting, I couldn’t do anything else. That’s what keeps me sane. It’s the only thing that I can do, and I would not be happy if I wasn’t doing it unless I have to do it. So whatever comes with that – whatever bad things – was just meant to be, because I can’t not be acting.”

HG Girl On Fire Staff Reacts to the ‘Mockingjay Part 2′ Trailer in Cat Gifs: What We Loved, What We Noticed, and What We Need!

June 9, 2015 | No Comments »
Posted by in Mockingjay Part 2

Today, the last first trailer for a Hunger Games film premiered and broke the internet and entire Hunger Games fandom. The Mockingjay Part 2 trailer hit us HARD in the feels, and we could not be more grateful to Lionsgate and Francis Lawrence for handling our beloved series so well!


It was EVERYTHING we hoped for and more, but some things that we hoped to see were noticeably absent! Including a shot of our favorite District 12 survivor, Buttercup the cat! So in honor of our favorite feline, we break down what we loved, what we noticed, and what we hope to see in Mockingjay Part 2 using cat GIF’s!



What I Loved: For a teaser trailer The Hunger Games Mockingjay part 2 DELIVERS! From the moment Annie and Finnick kissed and our first glimpse at their wedding I was hooked. There is so much to see, that each time I watch it I see something new.

What I Noticed: How about that glimpse of a bald Johanna?? From Effie’s outfits, to Katniss leading the way in the revolution, I can’t get enough.  We also get a look at a pretty emotional hug between Katniss and Peeta.. need I say more? Here come the tears!!! 

What I Need:  I would’ve like to see Katniss and Johanna doing some of the training they described in the book

What I Loved: ‘m currently trying to recover, even though I’ve had several hours to re-watch and digest the trailer. Watching this trailer felt like the first time I watched the very first trailer for The Hunger Games. How do you explain all of the emotions? At the time, it was the first we’d seen of the gang onscreen, and it was shocking and exciting. This time around, I feel sad because 1) it’s the end and 2) the story itself is so harsh and devastating. But the pleasant part is allowing the happiness to seep through (the wedding! Odesta 4eva!). And the fact that those are the things this gang is fighting for. As for the WOW moments: the wedding scenes, Katniss marching through the Capitol, the rebels running in the street to escape the black sludge, Everlark hugging, and Katniss stepping up to fully lead the rebellion. Hooray! I can’t wait to see this on the movie screen. And it’s going to be HARD and it’s going to be WONDERFUL. Meanwhile, I’m hibernating until November. I can’t stand waiting anymore.

What I Noticed: I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan and this is our very first look at Gwendoline Christie as Commander Lyme. EEK! Can’t wait for more!

What I Need: There’s a lot I can’t wait to see, but there’s even more that I am terrified to see. Without spoiling too much, Suzanne Collins was not afraid to kill several beloved characters, and I don’t know if I will ever truly be prepared to see that happen.



What I Loved: I am still in a glass case of emotion! It’s all coming to an end, and I don’t want to believe it! I love that this trailer didn’t give away the majority of the movie, Lionsgate has been so good with that. I loved seeing Katniss with Prim, and the Annie Finnick wedding made me cry instantly. My favorite part though was Peeta’s face. We saw Peeta, not hijacked Peeta, and it gave me hope! Can’t WAIT for this film!

What I Noticed: Cressida videotaping the wedding, because of course she would. I also saw LARGE bruises on Katniss’s neck, presumably from Peeta’s attack on her ta the end of Mockingjay Part 1! It breaks my heart!

What I Need: I need more Johanna, I had hoped we would hear a “real” or “no real” line in the trailer somewhere, but I can wait patiently for it as long as it’s in the film!



What I Loved: One word: EPIC!! Lionsgate has really outdone themselves with this teaser trailer! They managed to fit so much in less than two minutes, I found myself trying to figure out what part of the book each scene was from. 

What I Noticed: There were so many little details; bald Johanna at the wedding, diagrams of the Nut behind Katniss, the black sludge stains on the Capitol buildings. It makes me believe everything we love from Mockingjay will make it to the screen. 

What I Need: I would have loved to see  Johanna & Katniss together



What I Loved: I felt so many emotions as I watched this trailer. It was so amazing in so many ways and I just can’t believe that this story is coming to an end!

What I Noticed: Annie and Finnick’s wedding celebration

What I Need: Would like to have seen a peek he conversation between Peeta and Gale in the basement

All in all, I think it’s a 10 out of 1o for the first Mockingjay Part 2 Trailer, and it can only get better from here!

Source Says a Theater Has Received Locked ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2′ Trailer Titled ‘Unite’

Well, we didn’t think we would get a trailer until Comic Con, but looks like that ‘6.9.15’ tease on Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson’s Facebook may mean we will get a  trailer BEFORE San Diego Comic Con! has reported that a source at a US theater has confirmed they have received a locked trailer for Mockingjay Part 2 that is titled ‘Unite‘! The trailer title makes sense being the #Unite hashtag that they launched with all the recent Mockingjay Part 2 related posts along with the date 6.9.15!

We, along with, think the trailer or Propo will launch online on the 9th, then hit theaters with the release of Jurassic World on the 10th, which will be one of the summer’s biggest films!

Interestingly enough, Jabberjay’s also noted that the campaign for Mockingjay Part 1 launched this time last year with a trailer/propo titled Unity which was from The Capitol. WE think this propo/ trailer, Unite, will be from the rebels this time!! GIVE US SOME KATNISS! Whoop! Whoop!

Watch last years Unity below!

NEW STILL of Liam Hemsworth as Gale in Mockingjay Part 2!

We have been getting SO MANY MOCKINGJAY PART 2 photos and teasers this week, we feel so lucky! First, Jennifer Lawrence shared a photo from the film on her Facebook teasing ‘6.9.15 #MockingjayPart2 #Unite’ , then Josh Hutcherson, and now Liam Hemsworth! Liam released a photo of himself from Mockingjay Part 2 via his official Facebook page, but his photo did not come with the 6.9.15 tease! Hmmm, wonder why. Anyway, with that tease, a source has leaked that a theater has actually received a locked trailer for Mockingjay ( READ HERE), so could it be we will get a trailer before Comic Con?!

Enjoy the new image of Liam Hemsworth as Gale below! Who’s next? Willow Shields?
