The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. Part II: Behind the Scenes

Anti-utopia is a relevant genre as for today. It gained its popularity thanks to the trilogy written by Suzanne Collins. It was a some kind of response to Thomas More with his Utopia. And Suazanne’s vision of future world seems more realistic yet tragic.

Perhaps, some episodes and facts behind the scenes will quench your thirst a bit.

One by one, fresh videos uncovering the scenes from the "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" featuring Miss Lawrence and the rest of the cast and crew are coming. The release date is still this year’s November, 15th. Well, from this set of behind the scenes videos, we can guess at least the appearance of our heroes. This time, a restless Effie Trinket came up with the modest hooded robes with noticeable Asian influence. However, she might be just another crazy fan of George Lucas’ "Star Wars."

The episode with Josh Hutcherson, Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth dressed like SWAT as a whole team makes those who did not read the book understand these guys will unite their forces. It means that Peeta will get rid of his insanity. They all seem confident and ready for the final battle.

These behind-the-scenes looks point in the new movie’s direction. Mockingjay-pt-2-the-hunger-games-37074239-500-750Now, we deal with a typical action film instead of drama, fantasy, or anti-utopia. I guess all we’ll get in the upcoming part is blood. A lot of blood and innocent sacrifices. But that’s what it was about for all those years without Miss Everdeen and her friends. It also gives us a glimpse into the range of funny stunts the celebrities perform on their own, as opposed to enlisting a stunt double.

A glamor Hollywood turns into the unglamorous movie making while capturing behind the scenes. Everyone involved in the shoots are tired and bored; it distracts from entering this career field. That’s the good news: after all, it is a fine excuse for failing the casting. I already see it: “Mom, I couldn’t handle it because then I would have to stay dirty, hungry, and training 24/7 just like Jennifer Lawrence was forced to.” Those looks on the cast’s faces made me thnk of how sick and tired they are.

But a famous Ve Neill awakens us when touching up Jennifer Lawrence's face on set. To remind you, this guy is one of the respected judges on the Syfy Channel's "Face Off". He used to work on "The Amazing Spider Man" movie earlier. So, perhaps, a new episode will be no more than a new trend among girls and boys to dress up military and join the army of the rebel.

Of course, you will also hear the cast speaking about how much fun it was working with the team and blah-blah-blah. We all know the story that Jen did not want to portray Katniss. However, it did not prevent her, Hutcherson and Hemsworth from becoming best friends on the set.

It was a surprise to learn that for Harrelson it was almost a shooting of comedy. For some reasons, the actor does not count teen anti-utopia a serious work.

The deleted scenes as the bonus include, for instance, Peeta being schooled, rather manipulated, by Dr. Snow is the latest to hit the Internet.
