With the recent releases of two teaser trailers for Mockingjay I thought I would take a moment and comment on my reactions/thoughts! I will start by saying that I do not really remember much of what happens in Mockingjay by Susan Collins. I read it when it was first released and for some reason most of the events have slipped my mind, but that doesn’t mean I am any less excited for the upcoming movie! (I also do plan on re-reading Mockingjay before the movie is out.) If you haven’t already seen the trailers I you can watch them now!
Let’s just start with WOW! I love the concept of it being like a broadcast that those living in the capital would see. I like that they are mainly just snow talking. It is very simple put packs a big punch! In the first one Peeta is looking away and than in the second trailer he is staring right at the screen and I think that really foreshadows and adds to the events that take place in the book. I will say one thing that isn’t really trailer related, but I am upset that they are making it into two movies. I am not a fan of the split up of last books for the movie industry to make more money, but I digress.
I have to admit I squealed in the second trailer when Beetee appeared! Those three words are so strong “The Mockingjay Lives!” Also look at Johanna with that sassy hand on the hip! (She is one of my favorites!)
I love the adaptations of The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. I feel like for what they have to work with and the capabilities of putting words to the big screen, the movies were well done. Like with most things there is always room for improvement, but I highly enjoy them and can’t wait for the movie to come out!
What are your thoughts on the trailers and the movie adaptions in general? I would love to hear other’s thoughts and opinions (or complete fangirling).
