Watch The Hunger Games Mockingjay – Part 1 Trailer

Did you know ... ?

  1. Dedicated to Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died a week before filming ended. Since the majority of his scenes for the final two movies had already been filmed, the role was finished with other characters taking on his lines.
  2. Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) only appears briefly at the end of the novel, but the film expands her role greatly. In the novel, Katniss's stylists are present in District 13, as well a character named Fulvia, who is Plutarch's (Philip Seymour Hoffman) assistant; Effie replaces these characters in the film. Reportedly, after seeing The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), author Suzanne Collins called director Francis Lawrence and said, "There's no way Effie Trinket can not be in the Mockingjay films."
  3. According to Liam Hemsworth, Jennifer Lawrence would purposely eat foods with garlic or tuna before any kissing scenes between them.
  4. (at around 12 mins) The dog wandering in District 12 is Donald Sutherland's dog, Biggles.
  5. (at around 1h 45 mins) When Boggs (Mahershala Ali) knocks out Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) with the lunch tray, he used a foam prop to actually hit Hutcherson. Despite the prop's flexibility, Hutcherson said afterwards he had a giant bruise across his shoulder from being whacked so hard over so many takes.
  6. (at around 1h 7 mins) Jennifer Lawrence did her own singing for "The Hanging Tree" segment. The song went to number one worldwide on the iTunes Sales Chart.
  7. In order for Peeta to look like he was tortured, many think he went on an extreme diet. But in reality, they used CGI to slim his face and look abused and beaten.
  8. (at around 42 mins) Pollux (Elden Henson), an avox, is signing in American Sign Language to Castor (Wes Chatham) when he is introduced to Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence). He signs, "She is beautiful," and Castor signs back in agreement.
  9. Natalie Dormer ad-libbed twenty to thirty percent of her scenes, especially when Cressida instructs Finnick (Sam Claflin) and the twins where to stand before filming his speech. When asked how she did that impromptu act, Dormer said that she drew inspiration by paying attention to how director Francis Lawrence would converse with his camera crew in between takes.
  10. Jennifer Lawrence doesn't like singing, and hated filming "The Hanging Tree" scene.
  11. The final scene of the film, where Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) wakes up and learns Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) has been hijacked (after he tries to kill her) was originally intended to be the opening scene of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015). During production, the filmmakers decided that the ending after Boggs (Mahershala Ali) knocks out Peeta and the screen cuts to black was too big a cliffhanger for general audiences.
  12. The "Hanging Tree" song lyrics were written by Suzanne Collins for the book. The melody was composed by Jeremiah Fraites and Wesley Schultz of American indie folk band The Lumineers.
  13. Julianne Moore stated that her two children, both fans of the novels, convinced her to sign on for the role of Alma Coin.
  14. (at around 1h 9 mins) When the "Hanging Tree" propo airs, Plutarch (Philip Seymour Hoffman) takes credit for changing the "necklace of rope" line to "necklace of hope." During filming, singers were chosen from the District 5 background actors to record the crowd vocals on the song. Production had not yet decided which line to use, so the actors recorded both "rope" and "hope" during different takes.
  15. The movie was originally planned to be released in China on November 21, 2014, but was pulled a week before release. This was likely due to protests in Hong Kong. The political theme of the movie is very similar to protestors' demands for a democratic election in Hong Kong.
  16. Jennifer Lawrence cut her hair short the summer before filming began, due to damage from constant dyeing for the previous films. As a result, she had to wear a wig.
  17. (at around 1h 35 mins) The tactical team that rescues Peeta performed the stunt with no CGI. The team of stuntmen dropped more than five hundred feet from the Atlanta Marriott's skylight to the lobby floor. Liam Hemsworth and Mahershala Ali redid the stunt for the close-up of them detaching the cables and infiltrating the building, but were only allowed to go one hundred feet up.
  18. Natalie Dormer shaved half of her hair when she played the role of Cressida. In the book, the character of Cressida had her entire head shaved and covered with ivy tattoos. It was Natalie Dormer's idea to have only one-half (her left side) of her head shaved to be covered with (fake) ivy tattoos.
  19. Jennifer Lawrence was not merely reluctant to sing in this movie; she was terrified to do so. "The Hanging Tree" song was the first scene shot for this movie, and it took director Francis Lawrence and several other cast members to calm her down and convince her she could do it.
  20. In the book, the song "The Hanging Tree" is sung from the perspective of a man who has been hanged, and is calling out to his lover to join him in death, asking her to "wear a necklace of rope side by side with me."
  21. In an attempt to prevent spoilers and keep secrecy, the working title of the project while filming was "Seashore".
  22. In addition to a gray wig, Julianne Moore also wore dark contact lenses for her role as President Alma Coin.
  23. Throughout the film, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is wearing Peeta's (Josh Hutcherson) necklace, and often has her pearl in her hand.
  24. Filming in the sewage pipes, Jennifer Lawrence reportedly had a choking fit on the dry ice and smoke used on-set.
  25. Liam Hemsworth told EM he had a hairline fracture between his ankle joints during filming. "I heard a big crack and just went down."
  26. Despite prominent billing, Jena Malone has less than ten seconds of screentime.
  27. Lorde is the youngest person ever to curate a soundtrack for a film distributed by a major Hollywood film company.
  28. After the end credits, the Mockingjay logo from The Hunger Games (2012) appears, turns into the Mockingjay logo from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), and then turns into the Mockingjay logo from this movie, to finally transform into the Mockingjay logo in the book.
  29. First entry in the film franchise to be shot digitally.
  30. Liam Hemsworth said the most awkward moments filming were the kissing scenes with Jennifer Lawrence.
  31. When she was celebrating Christmas in Dublin, Ireland with fiancé Anthony Byrne during a break from this shoot, Natalie Dormer had to wear a beanie to disguise her partly shaved head so as not to reveal too much about her character.
  32. In the District 5 scene, five sets of twins were cast as District 5 rebels.
  33. The teaser has a scene which is not in the movie, where Peeta Mellark, Johanna Mason, and President Snow are all dressed in white fancy attire, coming out in Capitol television commercials. Mason has a blonde wig on.
  34. (at around 20 mins) The first time Peeta appears on-screen, his shirt collar has a sharp dagger shape poking him under his chin. This alludes to the fact that he is under duress, and, under threat of his own life, he must tell everyone to cease fire.
  35. (at around 1h 14 mins) When they are hacking into Peeta's broadcast and playing "The Hanging Tree", right before Peeta warns Katniss about the bombing of District 13, the lines from the song "dead man called out, for his love to flee" play. Peeta would be considered a dead man because he is the Capitol's prisoner and they are torturing him, Katniss is his love and he is warning her about the bombs telling her to "flee".
  36. Castor and Pollux were the mythical twin brothers of Helen of Troy. The brothers in Face/Off (1997), the "Percy Jackson" franchise, and this movie were all named after them.
  37. A scene was deleted from the beginning of the movie, showing Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) having a quiet private talk with President Snow (Donald Sutherland) before making his first appearance on Capitol television. Peeta makes it clear that he does not support the rebellion nor Katniss' role in it, and this opinion is apparently not forced upon him (bearing in mind that he has not yet heard of the atrocities committed by Snow). However, Snow forces him to voice this opinion in his upcoming interview.
  38. (at around 1h 22 mins) During the bombing of 13, Finnick looks at a photo of Annie and a tattoo is visible on his inner arm. In the novel, citizens and guests of 13 have their daily schedules marked on their arms in special ink. The explanation of what the tattoos are and how they are applied was cut from the film, but is included as a deleted scene in the home release.
  39. Enoboria, the District 2 victor from the previous film, does not appear when the victors are being rescued by District 13. She was most likely spared by The Capitol as District 2 are generally favoured by them for being loyalists.
  40. Director Francis Lawrence had an entire greenhouse grown for the movie. It took several months to grow and he had an entire team of experts to design it. He ultimately decided to cut all of the scenes filmed there because his first cut of the film was too long. The greenhouse can only be seen in deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes videos on the special two-disc DVD.
  41. (at around 1h 45 mins) When Katniss wakes up in the hospital after Peeta chokes her, her eyes and cheeks are red. This is because choking causes the formation of small bruises, called petechiae.
  42. Jodie Foster was considered for the role of Alma Coin, which went to Julianne Moore. Both have played Clarice Starling in the "Hannibal Lecter" film franchise.
  43. With the first movie weighing in at two hours and twenty-two minutes, and the second at two hours and twenty-six minutes, this is the shortest Hunger Games movie, with just two hours and three minutes of running time.
  44. Costume designer Trish Summerville, who did the The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) costumes, chose to work on Gone Girl (2014) instead of the Mockingjay films.
  45. Jennifer Lawrence sported a $30,000 wig. Jennifer Lawrence is blonde, whereas Katniss is brunette. To play the character, Jennifer Lawrence decided to wear a wig instead of colouring her hair. The wig she chose was reportedly worth $30,000. The iconic French braid she wore in the film was also a part of the wig.
  46. (at around 50 mins) When Katniss shoots down the hovercraft into what a lot of people think is the hospital, it is actually the building next to it.
  47. All of the citizens in District 13 are uniformed in simple jumpsuits similar to the uniforms of the people in George Orwell's "1984". This is a subtle nod that Alma Coin is really just the next President Snow instead of a politician working to bring back democracy to America.
  48. The only movie poster in the franchise which doesn't feature Katniss aiming her bow.
  49. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Julianne Moore appeared in Boogie Nights (1997), The Big Lebowski (1998), and Magnolia (1999).
  50. This film introduced over ten new characters.
  51. The film cast includes four Oscar winners: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Mahershala Ali, Jennifer Lawrence, and Julianne Moore; and two Oscar nominees: Stanley Tucci and Woody Harrelson.
  52. With a take of $55 million, this had the biggest opening day of 2014.
  53. (at around 43 mins) In District 8, Commander Paylor (Patina Miller) is wearing a purple shirt and headscarf. Historically, purple was a color reserved for royalty and other people of high authority. This could be foreshadowing of Paylor becoming Panem's new President in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015).
  54. Only entry in the film franchise not to be shot with IMAX cameras.
  55. This film was released on November 21, the same day as Jena Malone's birthday.
  56. While many people think the characters Castor and Pollux are related to Face/Off (1997), the names are actually taken from Greek Mythology. They are twin brothers that are transformed into the constellation Gemini.
  57. Eddy, Johanna, Annie, and Alma are among the very few characters in the franchise with modern names, as opposed to ancient Greek or Roman names, or obscure plant names, like "Katniss".
  58. Julianne Moore and Josh Hutcherson played mother and son in The Kids Are All Right (2010).
  59. First film to not include a kiss between Katniss and Peeta.
  60. The second highest-grossing film in the Hunger Games franchise.
  61. The word "Mockingjay" is said about twenty times.
  62. The character of Antonius, played by Robert Knepper, does not appear in the novels.
  63. The writer Danny Strong is better known for his role as Jonathan in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997). Donald Sutherland had a role in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992).
  64. In the propos, the four-note harmony used during the "Join The Mockingjay, Join The Fight" segment is used throughout the movie, including in the scene following the broadcast of the propo when the District citizens stage a rebellion against the Peacekeepers. This four-note harmony originates from the first movie; it was Katniss' Mockingjay signal to Rue that everything on her end would be okay.
  65. This is the only film in the franchise that does not list the cast in order of appearance during the end credits.
  66. This is the only film in the franchise not to open in the same year as a movie featuring Marvel Comics hero Thor, played by Liam Hemsworth's (Gale's) brother Chris Hemsworth.
  67. Julianne Moore and Woody Harrelson appeared in Game Change (2012) and The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio (2005).
  68. This is the first entry in The Hunger Games film franchise that does not feature actual competitive games.
  69. Katniss learns that District 13 was completely bombed at the end of the first rebellion 75 years before, but was secretly rebuilt underground by the survivors. Much to her dismay, they have been stockpiling weapons over the decades for the second uprising, and didn't come to the other districts' aid in the meanwhile. In the novels' backstory of District 13, the situation was even worse: they used to be the Capitol's center of nuclear development, and the ones who led the other districts into the original rebellion by supplying them with weapons. Although the rebels were successful for a long time, the failed invasion of the Capitol turned the tide into the latter's favor. Knowing that a direct victory would be impossible as the Capitol still had access to nuclear weapons elsewhere, District 13 used the threat of theirs in negotiating a secret cease-fire: they would abandon the other districts by withdrawing from the war and retreating to their underground nuclear facilities, while allowing the Capitol to bomb their surface, making it look that they had been completely destroyed. The Capitol reluctantly agreed, expecting that the other rebels would be quickly defeated without District 13's support, and the area itself couldn't survive on its own anyway. They were correct on the first point, but District 13 eventually managed to secretly reestablish itself.
  70. Sam Claflin and Donald Sutherland appeared in The Pillars of the Earth (2010).
  71. Here is a list of the districts and their products: "District 1 is luxury items, District 2 is masonry and defense, District 3 is general electronics, District 4 is fishing, District 5 is power/electricity, District 6 is transportation, District 7 is lumber, District 8 is textiles, District 9 is grain, District 10 is livestock, District 11 is agriculture", and District 12 of course is coal.
  72. (at around 1h 40 mins) Jena Malone appears toward the end of the film when the other four victors are being rescued. She can be seen with a shaved head.
  73. Elizabeth Banks and Julianne Moore played love interests of Alec Baldwin (Jack Donaghy) in season four of 30 Rock (2006).
  74. Jena Malone, who plays the prickly, Hunger Games survivor Johanna Mason in three of the "Hunger Games" movies, is a victim of President Snow (Donald Sutherland). In Pride & Prejudice (2005), Jena portrays the flirty, air-headed Lydia Bennet (1 of 5 sisters). Donald Sutherland plays Mr. Bennet, Lydia's father.
  75. Based on the last book of the Hunger Games trilogy and split into two parts, similar to the Twilight and Harry Potter franchises.
  76. Philip Seymour Hoffman, Donald Sutherland, and Jena Malone appeared in Cold Mountain (2003).
  77. (at around 1h 30 mins) When Gale, Boggs, and the other volunteers go to rescue the victors, one of the code words is "Mockingjay One".
  78. The 'Avox' are named from the Latin, "ad vox", meaning out of voice. The Latin word "panem" does mean bread, but the accent is on the first syllable. Everyone in the movie accents the second syllable, almost as if they're saying "pan am", which would be as if they're saying 'All American'. Obviously Suzanne Collins based the Capitol's culture on Old Rome, at the height of its power, with all its excesses and hypocrisies. But President Snow is based more on Caligula, 37 to 41 ad, then the latter emperors of the 5th Century.
  79. The title card "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" appears three times in the movie. Once at the beginning to open the film, once at the beginning of the end credits, and once more at the end of the end credits.
  80. Jennifer Lawrence and director Francis Lawrence are not related.
  81. Rian Johnson and Alfonso Cuarón were considered to direct.
  82. The first trailer came out on September 15, 2014, at 11:47 p.m.
  83. Director Francis Lawrence initially defended dividing the film into two parts, but later said, "I totally regret it... I'm not sure everybody does, but I definitely do. What I realized in retrospect - and after hearing all the reactions and feeling the kind of wrath of fans, critics, and people at the split - is that I realized it was frustrating. And I can understand that. In an episode of television, if you have a cliffhanger, you have to wait a week, or you could just binge it, and then you can see the next episodes, but making people wait a year, I think, came across as disingenuous, even though it wasn't."
  84. Third installment in the movie franchise.
  85. Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson appeared in The Duel (2016).
  86. Woody Harrelson and Jena Malone appeared in The Messenger (2009).
