As some of you may know, I was a huge fan of The Hunger Games franchise. I’m a fan of any franchise that attempts to get teenagers thinking and talking about the challenges the world could be facing in the future. Yeah, there was a lot of attention on the love triangle between Peeta, Katniss and Gale, but the love story was always treated as a bonus.
Sadly, the final two films in the franchise (Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2) could have been better. Catching Fire was such a great movie, it was disappointing to see the franchise go downhill after it.
But now that it’s been a few months since Mockingjay Part 2 was released, I feel like I’m ready to look back and share a laugh with the brilliant folks at Screen Junkies. They just released the honest trailer for the final installment of the franchise, and yes it’s filled with a lot of Peeta slams.
Check out the hilariousness below. Obviously there are spoilers, so if you haven’t watched the movie or read the books, you might want to save this video for later.
We are now less than a month away from the release of The Hunger Games:Mockingjay—Part 1. As a huge fan of the franchise, I have been trying my best to contain my excitement, but the new teaser released this week has pushed me over the edge.
The clip is just 40-seconds long, well, really it’s not even that long because Doritos had to get their cheesy promotion in. But that’s okay, because the rest of the clip is jam-packed with action. Even Peeta makes a brief appearance in this teaser, and we finally see the difficult choice Katniss must make.
When she sees that Peeta is still alive, she immediately knows what she must do. She has to save him. But not everyone believes this is a good idea. Just check out Gale’s face at the 18-second mark. He’s like, “You’ve got to be kidding me!”
Mockingjay Part 1 will hit theaters Nov. 21. Advance tickets go on sale Oct. 29 at 12pm ET. Hopefully they offer the “marathon” viewing like they did last year. If you are a big fan of the franchise, I suggest you get tickets for the marathon event. It’s well worth the extra money.
