Every week, a new tease to enjoy on our road to November 21. Yesterday we got a cool poster of our long-awaited favorite, OUR LEADER THE MOCKINGJAY.
It was just of her back, which is yet again a huge tease, cause we would love to see our heroine’s actual face sometime in the near future. But there was a lot of great symbolism that you could draw from her body position, and the poster itself.
Along with the poster we were teased that Our Leader the Mockingjay would return on Wednesday, September 10 with something new. Rejoice!
People were overjoyed thinking it meant that the trailer would be revealed on that day. But one day later, now there is doubt and rumor and uncertainty again. It seems pretty clear going through the various social networks.
The fans are so tired, Katniss.
Movie marketing is all about the tease. You can’t reveal too much or people complain. You reveal too little and people complain. There is a very delicate balance. And fans can only take so much teasing before they get really angry or stop believing all together.
Today I was bemoaning the use of the word “soon” to talk about when things were coming because “soon” is so open to personal interpretation. I know we all wish we had more concrete details on what to expect so we could prepare sufficiently. What we do know – something new will be revealed on Wednesday. It’s extremely likely to be Katniss related (YAY KATNISS REMEMBER WE LOVE HER?).
But it’s also likely that what happens on Wednesday will be a tease for something else down the road, so it’s best we brace ourselves for continued emotional turmoil. It seems to be the theme around here.
I think Katniss would be a really good Batman, btw.
