COMMENT DU JOUR
Adapting "Guardians" -a screenwriting interview

I especially like that part about how boundaries can be a good thing. Knowing where the plot points have to hit always stops me from wandering aimlessly in my writing. Some may see those thing as cookie cutter but I've always found them inspiring.❞ -Daniel

Citizen Peeta

JA from MNPP here, with that there the first teaser for Mockingjay, the third Hunger Games film and the first half of the two-part finale. (What convolutions our sentences must take in this new world of franchise logic.) If you ask me Donald Sutherland would already have a couple of golden boys (I mean even some nominations, at least!) on his mantle, I love him that much, so highlighting his sparkling sneering performance as President Snow in this video seems wise to me, and makes my extremities tingle. And I love Josh Hutcherson playing the role of "Kept Boy" up in there -- because my wiring is strange I immediately thought of Burt Reynolds in Citizen Ruth, of all things, with that young boy he always had beside him. Now that would take the Hunger Games to a whole new level of complications, eh? Katniss storms the Capitol and finds Peeta massaging oil into Snow's shoulder-blades? Be brave, Francis Lawrence!

is it wrong tht i like this franchise so much more than Twilight and yet I'm already eager for it to end? and there's two movies left? I miss trilogies. Quadrilogies just aren't as cool.

Thanks for sharing that teaser, I hadn't seen it yet! I'm still annoyed they split Mockingjay into two films, but this trailer has me intrigued. That's for sure.

Any word on a replacement for PSH? (Who was often brilliant but awful in these, I thought.)

June 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBD

I believe he shot enough for them to cover, and the little that he didn't they are CGing him into. I believe that's right? It was the last thing I heard ages ago anyway. Welcome to the future!

Indeed, they didn't have to replace PSH. If I'm not mistaken he had only a couple shooting days left, so they're using as much as they can from what they have.

Oh man, I didn't need to see that again. A topless Burt Reynolds from that movie. Ugh..
