It’s safe to say that most people went and saw The Hunger Games Mockingjay pt. 1. It’s also safe to say that a decent bunch of those people were left feeling like they had only watched the first half of a promising story. The Hollywood cash grab machine is at it again, splitting the shortest book in the series into two films never seemed like a good idea, but it’s going to make a lot more money for the studio so who cares! Part one was solid. It was slow burn that revealed a lot of salacious backstory and provided a nice backdrop for our climax. The problem is that we have to wait a year for the damn climax!
That being said, MockingJay pt. 2 is still a widely anticipated film. It’s going to make a lot of money, but there is the fear that, like the Hobbit before it, the final installment will be all pay off lacking the emotionality of it’s predecessors. Either way, it still has Jennifer Lawrence, and that right there is enough to entice Bro Knows alone. We finally get our first promotional poster for the film set to release November 20th 2015.
Check out the poster!
Okay now, the poster is pretty cool. It is direct and to the point, but imaginative and original. Even with all the problems of milking the franchise for all it’s worth and creating two separate halves to make a whole, the marketing for the franchise has always been amazing. They drop subtle poster and solid teasers. They never over saturate, but also never let the film drop out of mind. So no matter what you think of the final product, this poster is a very solid start.
So what do you guys out in Bro Nation think of the poster? Are you excited for the upcoming movie? Do you like how they split up the third book into two films? Drop a comment and let’s start a discussion.
