Not gonna lie: We still squeal a little on the inside when we see a new behind-the-scenes report from movies we love. So the new Catching Fire fall preview in Entertainment Weekly got us pretty psyched!
… And then we read it. It was very well-written, the quotes were reaffirming, and it was not disappointing in any way. But we didn’t learn anything either.
Okay, hold up. There was one surprise in there. It’s casually mentioned that Sam Claflin GOT MARRIED last month! Holy crap, totally missed that memo and now we’re getting all gooey over that stuff because… AWWWWWW! Congrats Sammy Boy!
Besides that, the short article covered the pressure of making the film in a short period of time, plus the scenes that were going to be cut. All of which was discussed pretty thoroughly in the past. Yes, Bonnie, Twill, and Darius are out. Katniss won’t be breaking her ankle and recovering for weeks. And hilariously enough, there are people just freaking out about these things now because they apparently missed it the first several hundred times.
We don’t expect new news around every corner, of course. We’re all (relatively) normal gals and didn’t grow up in a world of instant gratification. Good things come to those who wait. But we’ve realized that there’s a downside to being an uber-obsessive Hunger Games follower: WE’VE SEEN TOO MUCH.
We know, we know! There’s an easy solution to that, which you’ll all suggest “Well, stop reading and watching everything, then you won’t feel like you’ve seen it all a million times!” BUT 1) This site would hit a whole new level of sucktastic if we weren’t aware of current on-goings and 2) We have this disease where we can’t NOT watch… and we use double negatives.
By the time November comes around, we’ll have seen a large portion of the movie via trailers and clips, and we’ll know about even more of it from interviews. We’ll probably be screaming “JUST GIVE US THE WHOLE DAMN MOVIE, ALREADY!” But we’re pretty sure that’s how Lionsgate wants it, so we’ll just have to get used to memorizing bits of news in the meantime.
Clearly, It’s A Conspiracy,
