All this talk about how the “Beakniss” poster was finally fixed for the DVD release has got us thinking… Where’s the Mockingjay Part 2 teaser poster? We learned the hard way last year to not expect Lionsgate to follow the same promotional timelines from one movie to the other. The Mockingjay Part 1 teaser poster was released in late January 2014 only to be followed by four months of absolutely nothing about the movie, so we don’t mind them delaying the poster release if it’s followed by some more frequent teases along the way this year.
We have reached March now, and still crickets. And yes, the MJ1 DVD comes out in the US this week so the focus is still on selling the hell out of that. But since we’re really bored with all the nothing going on, here are some theories on when the teaser poster will be released.
- Week of March 16 to accompany an animated logo teaser before Insurgent’s theatrical release – basically a repeat of what was at the very end of the Mockingjay Part 1 credits, but why not show it again to remind us that the movie exists?
- Week of April 13 to tease an actual Mockingjay Part 2 teaser trailer the following week to play with Age of Adaline (a Lionsgate film) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (not Lionsgate, but you know, a HUGE blockbuster).
- Or, just some random week for funsies.
We repeat – these are just our theories about what timing would make sense from a promotional perspective (including the talk of any teasers before movies, it’s all guessing games at this point).
When do you think we’ll finally see the last version of our favorite birdie?
