Trailer Reactions: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay (Part I)The Hunger Games Trailer Reactions Trailers
The times are going by so fast! It's already the second to the last film of The Hunger Games trilogy! As much as I didn't really like the final book, there is a lot at stake here in the districts and a whole mound of shit is about to go down! The final book is really the breaking point for all the districts as they face a war against the capital. Katniss Everdeen becomes their martyr and essentially a symbol for freedom hence the Mockingjay sign plastered everywhere. There is a real sense of danger that the trailer just gives us a sneak peek at and it's only bound to increasingly get worse. And this is one of Phillip Seymour Hoffman's last roles so if my makeup is smeared by the end, you know the real reason behind those tears!
The Hunger Games was one of the first YA films to be adapted which did incredibly well in terms of story-telling that it is considered as a the pioneer of YA films (at least in my book!) Every film from Divergent to The Maze Runner wants to embrace and trace the steps of the iconic series but it simply falters and it seems like there hasn't yet been a series to challenge the superiority of THG. With that said, I am sad the series is coming to a close but it was a fantastic journey! Here's to more and better YA films to come! The Hunger Games: Mockingjay (Part I) comes out November 21st!
