The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 – World Premiere in Berlin

hg4

I can’t believe this series is coming to an end, oh it’s like Harry Potter all over again. I love these films and it’s cast is the best cast ever! Tonight saw the beginning of many worldwide premieres, but starting firstly in Berlin for it’s world premiere. Even though it was in German, I did watch the live-stream and if you missed it it can be found here. Anyway, it was really enjoyable to watch the cast not only answer lots of really interesting questions but also mess around and be their loveable selves!

One of the things though I did love to hear was how much fun the cast had shooting all theses films and learning more about the friendships they made with each other! The interviews (which were very short) did enable the cast to talk about their characters transition and development which was really interesting and it was nice to see how attached everyone was with their characters and how none of them wanted it to end. You and me together.

Fashion wise, I thought they all looked fabulous! We have a very stylish cast! I thought all the gents looked very handsome in their suits and as for the ladies I wish I had all their dresses. If I had to pick a favourite I would pick Jennifer’s long wine coloured dress and Elizabeth’s stunning floral number! But everyone looked equally stunning. If you want to check out the fashion or just see pictures from the premiere you can find them here.

Tomorrow is the London premiere and there’s no doubt we will both be watching that however through the live-stream! The lifestream for that can usually be found on Yahoo but if not check out the Official Mockingjay Twitter page for links! Will you be watching?

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 – Trailer Reaction

Amy:

I have to admit it has taken a lot of effort to restrain myself from writing this whole post in capital letters as I have been so excited for the trailer and I’m even more excited for the film itself!! I loved that in this film we are able to see more than just district 13 and more of the capital and the shots from the trailer looks like these scenes are full of action.

Jennifer Lawrence is once again a perfect Katniss and certainly in the trailer we see her aggression and determination shine though as well as her amazing leaderships skills. She also looks like such a badass, especially near the end when she walks up the road towards Snow with thousands of Panem citizens following behind!!! We also get a quick snippet of a Katniss and Peeta embrace which just made all of my feelings explode!! I have to admit though my favourite bit of the whole trailer was the wedding between Finick and Annie (how cute does that look!!?) as for once everyone looks really happy and is certainly a great contrast to the destruction we see caused in the capital!! I also love the line from Finick “Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to the 76th Hunger Games”!! Brilliant!!

Eleanor:

Oh wow! I was a little slow on the uptake on this trailer, I’ve got to admit I completely forgot about it until I got home from my driving lesson, I should thank Amy for reminding me so I wasn’t completely out of the loop (although I would have eventually seen it on twitter). But as soon as I got my ass in gear (bit of a cheeky pun there as I just came back from a driving lesson…Ha.Ha. I’m so funny) I was SO EXCITED! It was just the perfect trailer, wasn’t it? I am also interested about the Finnick-Annie wedding, purely because it wasn’t described in much detail in the book so I’m intrigued at how it will look.

It just looks so bad-ass and exciting! I’m really excited about seeing all the intense scenes in the capitol, purely for the excitement and also sheer terror (even though I know what will happen). Although the last book wasn’t my favourite, it’s looks as though it’s done it justice and they haven’t cocked it up, which is always good.

Although this all very exciting, there is also a little part of me that’s quite sad. When I was watching this I realised that this is the last ‘first reveal’ trailer that we’re ever going to get for the Hunger Games. This being the books that turned me into an official fangirl, and the first book that I tentatively waited for stills and trailers for, the first of many. I owe them a lot.

Overall we are both SO excited for this film and please do share your opinions in the comments below!
