You thought we were done with Mockingjay Part 1 trailers? Ready to see something for Part 2? Well, I guess we need to slow it down cause yesterday we saw the Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital release Mockingjay Part 1 trailer thanks to the heads up from our friends at QuarterQuell.org
The theme of this trailer seems to be “Now’s the time to show them everything” because wow do we see a lot of different scenes here. Way more than in the earlier trailers (QuarterQuell.org also pointed out that this is actually the longest trailer of them all, but that doesn’t mean it’s very long either since the MJ1 pre-release trailers were shorter than usual).
It feels like we see every single action scene in this trailer. It might even be too much if you’re someone who hasn’t seen the movie yet. And it may be overselling the action. We know there’s a lot of quiet moments in the movie, which we loved, and they show several of those beats as well. The predominant feel though, is ACTION. We get it, this trailer is about the hard sell to all those people who didn’t bother to head to theaters this winter. ACTION, ACTION, upset Katniss, ACTION, bruised Peeta, Emo Gale, ACTION!! BUY NOW BUT GET IT IN MARCH.
The trailer did its job though. It got us really excited to finally see the movie again. The one thing we wish they hadn’t included was that tag of “The courage of one will change the world” which we weren’t fans of before, and still think is a little too “cheesy generic hero” for the story. This trailer will likely be the last time we see that tag though, so we’ll push that aside. We’re just really itching to see it again, just as it’s leaving theaters! Ahhh.
There’s still no confirmed release date, but it’s looking like early March is a good bet.
Soon you’ll be faced with the quandry of deciding which version to buy.
