After much fandom flailing, Lionsgate released that Mockingjay Part 2 teaser that’s running in front of Insurgent in theaters!
And no surprise, it’s a logo reveal.
However, this is a good logo reveal!
Yes, because we managed our expectations, we were able to enjoy this quite a bit! As far as logo reveals go, this is one of the better ones out there. It could have been silent besides some sound effects or a little hum of the score in the background, not offering much for the fans to enjoy. Sure, the visual is cool, but it was cool when we all saw it at the end of Mockingjay Part 1 too. We needed more and we got something.
The title, “Remember”, actually seems relevant now. It wasn’t just a reference to one quote, but rather a boatload of nostalgia stuffed into 44 seconds. As it cycles through popular quotes from the previous films, you’re able to think back on them pretty fondly but you’re also able to anticipate a new Mockingjay Part 2 quote that’s probably coming. AND IT DOES!
“Tonight, turn your weapons to the Capitol!”
It’s probably not the most exciting line from the whole movie, we admit. But it does fit in with the theme for these quotes, which seems to be the way the Panem audiences (and to a point, real audiences) are seeing this story play out. Also, it gets you a little riled up because Katniss is clearly riled up as she says it. We hoped for a more famous book quote, but it’ll do.
Annnnnnd we now know the next teaser is coming with Age of Adaline and The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so now is the time for the fandom to feel good!
Tonight, turn your fandom feels to the Internet!
