Believe it or not, we’ve got nothing to fool you with this April Fool’s Day. Not that we wouldn’t love to, but sometimes the real world interferes long enough that we don’t come up with clever ways to mess with you.
Thankfully, some other sites were kind enough to do it for us! We’re especially fond of Teen.com article claiming Jennifer Lawrence dropped out of the last two films and has been replaced by Shailene Woodley (aka the young actress who will be taking over all other Young Adult films in about a year) and Down With The Capitol‘s announcement that Suzanne Collins will write a 4th Hunger Games book.
But the best faux announcement (also from DWTC) was about those freaking deleted scenes. You know, the ones that Gary Ross has gone so far as to say don’t exist– well, to be clear, he claimed he used all the material he shot in the film. Until stills from scenes that weren’t in the movie showed up online. Seriously, Gary, you know you can’t hide anything from the Internet! Plus, why claim there’s nothing? Why not just say it’s not something he is ready to release?
DWTC claimed that there was a special one-year anniversary edition of The Hunger Games featuring the mysterious deleted scenes. If we were perfectly clear about those unreleased deleted scenes, this wouldn’t be such a surprise for those of us who forgot the evil that is April Fool’s Day.
We mean, imagine what scandalous materials are being hidden away from us in those deleted scenes! Gruesome, bloody deaths! Pure smut! Extreme prejudice! Or *gasp* the really awful stuff! Another scene in which Peeta and Katniss talk about their lives or the games for another couple minutes?! More looks at life in The Capitol or the districts?! Something that actually clarifies the status of Katniss and Peeta’s relationship during the ending?! CRAZY TALK, WE KNOW.
These scenes could be as dry as sandpaper. They could be completely insensible. But we still want to see them! We want to know every inkling of what went into making these movies, even if we watch them and think “Ouch… okay, we understand why that wasn’t included. My eyes burn!
Maybe there will be some crazy anniversary DVD in the future that we can all feast our eyes on in the future, but can we at least get a consolation acknowledgement of such scenes in the meantime?!
We don’t care if the scene is bad, JLaw’s hair looks fab!
