The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is out on Digital HD on February 17th, so the behind-the-scenes clips are starting to roll in. There have been three so far, but we’re only going to take about ONE. Because as great as hair and costumes are, there’s something else involved here.
FINNICK ODAIR. IN HIS UNDERWEAR.
The infamous Finnick scene from Mockingjay, the book, was cut from the movie. And we understand why! Finnick was so emotionally heavy in this movie that a sudden joke and strip tease may have come off as awfully out of character.
But man, did we miss that scene. It’s funny! …And Sam Clafin shirtless, obviously. (We’re not even gonna try to pretend that we didn’t care whether or not we saw Sam shirtless. WE CARED.)
Thankfully, the very first bit of behind-the-scenes goodness we get is all about Sam Claflin’s experience as Finnick. AND THERE IT IS!
Unfortunately, it’s a brief flash with a District 13 weapons room missile blocking off part of the view. Which makes it really, really hard to screencap. But we sure tried!
This confirms something great for us: Even though the deleted scene may not be on the DVD (There’s a possibility that is could be in the announced “Katniss and Boggs walk through District 13″ scene mentioned but we doubt it), they’re probably going to discuss the hilarity of that sequence somewhere in there.
Underwear aside, we love Sam. Because he talks about how he still gets nervous coming on to set and feels such a great responsibility to the franchise. And to us, that’s both very modest of him and massively important. Confidence is wonderful and he should have it, but it’s amazing to see just how much he wants to get things right and impress the fanbase.
Also, FINNICK ODAIR IN HIS UNDERWEAR!
