With ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2‘ only a few short weeks away from being released, the studio is amping up their marketing game, starting to release numerous clips from the upcoming blockbuster to get people excited to see the finale of the epic franchise.
In the first clip below, we get a quite scene with Peeta and Katniss, in which he discusses some of the more subtle tortures he went through, describing how the Capital altered pictures from his life to attempt to brainwash him, though he thought he could usually tell the forgeries based on the shininess of the photos. He asked Katniss whether her protecting him is real, and she reminds him that is what they do, protect one-another. For book-readers, it is definitely a scene setting up a lot of relationship drama for the end of the story, and also is a good reminder of how much Katniss and Peeta have been through together.
In the other clip, we see Katniss speaking about President Snow, seeming to understand that she can only be a symbol of hope and keep on making speeches for so long. She knows she needs to kill the man in order to protect everything their rebellion is trying to build, and she makes that claim, fully knowing how difficult a challenge it will be to get to Snow to end his reign. It is a good scene setting up Katniss’s motivations for the final movie, as in the films she has been slow to come back around to wanting to fight openly in the rebellion after her trauma in the two Hunger Games.
What are your thoughts on the new clips released? Are you excited for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2?” Let us know below!
