We’ve got a Mcokingjay Part 2 trailer and lots of new feels along with it!
To celebrate our first glimpse at the franchise finale, we’re presenting you with another zany reaction post! We’ve got a lot to say about the new trailer, so let the gushing begin!
Oh, and this sucker is pretty long, so don’t forget to click READ MORE the see the whole thing.
THE FEELING IS BACK!
THE GIRL WITH THE PEARL: So how does this trailer stack up against the mountain of other THG trailers we’ve seen?
JJ: It’s right at the top for me. I love the teaser and theatrical trailers for CF, and this one made me feel that same level of astonishment/amazement.
TGWTP: I’m in the same boat. The second CF trailer was my favorite up until now, but I think this one actually beats it!
JJ: That feeling of “THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN I EVEN DREAMED. PRAISE FRANCIS LAWRENCE” type of feeling. I didn’t quite get it with the MJ1 trailers. But now it’s back, baby!
THEM THERE EYES: Not joking, I’ve had to go back and watch them all… I tend to forget.
TGWTP: Nina and Francis got harassed about wanting an amazing trailer a lot on Twitter. WE DO NOT APPROVE OF THIS. Buuuut they certainly delivered!
TTE: I wonder if they have the same team on the trailers?
JJ: It varies. I believe this one was by Trailer Park. But they’ve had different companies work on them.
TGWTP: I have no idea. The teams behind trailers obviously need way more credit than they get.
JJ: But it was just overall well done. The structure, the shots they chose, it gave us hints at a lot of scenes throughout the movie… but not TOO much.
TTE: Yes, even the music they choose to buy, and sample from the scores are perfectly placed.
WEDDING FEELS HIDDEN BEHIND SOME SERIOUS HAIR
TGWTP: How many feels did you have when you realized it began with the wedding scene?
JJ: THAT was a great choice.
TGWTP: I made an uncomfortable gaspy-sob sound that was probably not meant to come out of a human.
JJ: First, it just LOOKED beautiful, but then you realize what it actually is, and as a fan, you’re hooked in completely from the start. And Katniss’s voiceover for that moment is so perfect. Well played.
TTE: Well, the first time I viewed it I was in a hot car, watching it on my cell phone… but I had the sound up on my car’s stereo… so that made it kind of dramatic in probably not the way they wanted it to be… for me at least.
TGWTP: I must admit though… I didn’t notice Johanna in that scene until about the fifth time I watched it. Too distracted by Effie’s Edward Scissorhands hair
JJ: I didn’t notice her either. But that doesn’t take points away for me. There will be moments with Johanna later, I’m sure.
TTE: I didn’t see her! *runs off to pause video like crazy person*
TGWTP: How could you behind Effie’s flair, really? Though man… Jena is handling that bald cap like a champ in the scene when you DO notice her
TTE: Oh, there she is… ten seconds in, over Effie’s shoulder.
TGWTP: And did you guys notice that when we finally see Katniss talked to Coin, she’s still got the bruises on her throat?! *weeps* Then you realize that her voice sounds REALLY ROUGH.
JJ: Yes, the bruises are a great detail. And her voice. Poor dear.
TTE: I was about to say “Her voice sounds really trashed.”
TGWTP: Obviously, we know the story picks up immediately after Peeta’s attack. But knowing and seeing are way different
JJ: “Snow has to pay for what he’s done…” Cue Lionsgate logo lol
EFF YOU, SPEECHES!
TGWTP: I also find it funny that Katniss says “I can’t make another speech about it…” and then is launches into her District 2 speech shortly thereafter lol
JJ: “Can’t” versus “God help me I DON’T WANT TO”
TTE: I think that’s on purpose! she’s very speech-y.
JJ: But Katniss, you do some pretty good speeches. Impromptu is hard to do after all.
TGWTP: Exactly. Poor girl is just like “NO MORE FUCKING SPEECHES! LET ME TAKE OUT MY RAGE ON THE BATTLEFIELD.”
