“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” is expected to strongly hold still at number one at the box-office in the following days and weeks given the movie’s source (series) book from Suzanne Collins is one of the bestselling masterful dystopian novel to beat and in the penultimate final instalment of the “Mockingjay,” the filmmakers have created one tense and exciting film that made the viewers wanting more.
In her third and most poignant turn as Katniss, Academy Award® winner Jennifer Lawrence relished the chance to portray the character at this heightened juncture as she emerges from distress to take her first steps into leadership. “I was excited for Katniss to come into her own as a leader, but she’s still a very reluctant hero,” Lawrence observes. “In the first movie she wanted to save her family. In the second, she tried to save her friends and herself. Now, she starts to realize the impact she has on the wider world and that she has a choice to lead this battle for what is right.”
Flying high on screens, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” is still showing in cinemas nationwide.
