FACT: We are a bunch of impatient crazies. AND WE KNOW IT.
Mockingjay Part 1 has only been out for just shy of two months. It doesn’t even have a confirmed DVD release date yet (in fact, it’s still in many theaters) and yet we’re sitting here, arching our eyebrow and looking toward Lionsgate as if to say “Soooo.. Got anything from Mockingjay Part 2 yet?”
Well, there’s good news and bad news when it comes to that urge!
The good news? Tim Palen, Chief Marketing Officer for Lionsgate, will soon be releasing a photography book focused solely on the series! Here are the details:
This is pretty awesome because Tim Palen is the photographer behind some of the most iconic Hunger Games franchise images out there, including all the awesome character posters. He’s been around the franchise since its beginnings and has got never-before-seen goodness, which is NEVER a bad thing!
The bad news? This will likely be our first taste of Mockingjay Part 2… and it’s not coming until JUNE 2015.
We expected to wait until at least April for the goods. Lionsgate is going to be chugging through the INSURGENT release until the end of March, after all. We can wait for one this to die down before the company worries about another.
Tim’s book will likely mark the very first peek into MJ2. The main photography is his work, so it;s likely going to be released in support of the book. Releasing his work early enough that it’s not considered “in conjunction” with the book would be super contradictory to the book’s whole purpose– TO GET OUR MONEY (and to display some lovely art). This also means the majority of MJ2 images from the book probably won’t (officially) hit the web. Because again, they want us to purchase the book. Which you can do here, if you’re interested.
Does they mean we’re doomed to another year with no real Mockingjay media until late August? We don’t know if we can stand that pain once again! Clearly it didn’t work out so well last time, so let’s not repeat it, okay?
We Can Be Patient. Just Not THAT Patient.
