And So The Interviews Have Begun

Ah, finally. Cast interviews and press tour goings-on have started trickling onto the Internet, and it’s been worth the wait. Already, we have some fairly hilarious videos. Not that I’m complaining, but when did junket interviews start including playing games? Here are a couple revelations from what we’ve seen so far.

1) Jena Malone and Sam Claflin are the other Dream Team.

Check out that Blue Steel look from Sam.

We got our first taste of this during the Fansite Roundtable interview with the two of them, but that’s not just a one time thing. They seem to have fun during their interviews together and can play off each other well. It kind of makes you expect to see that off-screen chemistry to translate to an interesting dynamic on-screen. And we know that if Jennifer and Josh are understandably busy, they can at least send Sam and Jena to keep us entertained in their stead.

2) Interview games tend to include white boards and vague rules.

Here, write your answer on this white board! Why? I don’t know, just do it.

What’s the point of having teams if everyone is just showing their answer? It doesn’t matter, just go with it, it’s fun.

3. Francis Lawrence likes to talk a lot.

And thank heaven for that! For me, I like going into movies knowing very little, but Hunger Games fans are big worriers. Just hearing Francis Lawrence acknowledge some of our favorite, small moments from the book and indicating that those little things are in the movie gives me great hope, without completely ruining it. Describing Peeta’s touching speech in District 11 gave me a lot of feelings, and it’s nice to hear finally speak about Sam and Jena make the perfect Finnick and Johanna.

Pirate or Super Suave Director?

Is he a pirate? Is he flirting with Josh Horowitz? Either way, it’s great to hear from him.

4. And here’s the biggest revelation of all… The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is just around the corner! With interviews coming out, that’s the sure sign that we are almost there! Can you taste it?

  1. Yeah, I just had to comment on the Yahoo video on Youtube yesterday. It was obvious the interviewer was attempting a Newlywed Game type of set-up, but it was just all types of wrong. It was still funny though.

  2. I love it how Sam stick to the book version of Seneca’s death. 😀 They are both too cute to be true though. I feel like I just found another reason to be happy about the fact that both Johanna and Finnick prevail until Mockingjay. 🙂

      1. Wait, wasn’t part of the shock at what Katniss did with the hanged dummy was about how it seemed like she knew what happened to Seneca? Or was that just of her knowing that he was executed?

        Gosh, I was so sure about this up until this point. Everything I know is a lie. But at least Sam’s with me. 😀
