Last night at CinemaCon, Collider.com caught up with Francis Lawrence, who was at the convention to receive the Director of the Year award, to talk Mockingjay - Part 2! Check out their brilliant video interview below:
If you are unable to watch the full video, some of the big points from the interview:
- The cut of the film is "pretty much done", apart from the Epilogue which they will shoot in Atlanta late next month. Runtime should be 127 minutes without credits - the original assembly was around 170 minutes. Very few if not no deleted scenes. Film should be complete in early September.
- Nothing to tease on the soundtrack - "such early days".
- The film will be going to San Diego Comic-Con in early July, and Francis has confirmed that he will also attend the grand opening of the Hunger Games Exhibition in New York.
- On the trailer, he doesn't know when that's coming but we need to "practice patience". He also says that Lionsgate CMO Tim Palen has some really cool stuff coming for Part 2, when talk turned to the recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser.
While unfortunately it may not look like we will be getting the trailer next week in time for Avengers: Age of Ultron opening stateside, it should hopefully be coming very soon, bearing in mind factors like the exhibition and Comic-Con. Keeping our fingers crossed for it to land by the end of May...
Stay tuned for more interviews from CinemaCon!
