Part one, obviously.
Now I know that most of you aren’t obsessed with Jennifer Lawrence or Katniss or just the whole series like I am. I get it. But I also know from previous conversations that most of you have enjoyed the series and read all three books. You’ve likely also seen the first two movie adaptations.
As I’m sure you’re well aware, the movie will be out here in the US tonight. My theater has four showings at 8:00. Then one every half hour until midnight. That’s pretty insane. You all should know by now that I never ever ever go to the movies. I haven’t been once in 2014. But there was never any doubt that I’d see this in theaters. Just happens that instead of going Friday morning, as has been my custom with the previous installments, I’m going to one of those four 8:00 showings. Yeah. Call me crazy. But maybe I’ll take some pictures of Katniss and Peeta and Gale?
I’ve only been to three other midnight/Thursday showings. Deathly Hallows Part 2, Half-Blood Prince, and Transformers 3. That’s it. And it was pretty ridiculous for all three. But this is an earlier showing and I’m not particularly worried about being trampled by teens who can’t wait to set sight on Katniss. Although that is a very real possibility.
So tell me, when are you going to see Mockingjay Part 1? Crazy enough to brave the crowds on opening night or perhaps waiting for a matinee showing on a later date?

Haha I’m not crazy enough to go see it tonight. I did that last year for Catching Fire and I prefer to see movies when there’s less of a crowd. But I’m still sooo excited for it! The series gets better with every film in my opinion 😃
When and IF it ever comes to our theater! Too small for getting it here when it opens. 😦
My friend got me hooked on the books … read them all!
I love the Hunger Game series so I’m very much looking forward to seeing Mockingjay! I went to the midnight premiere of Catching Fire, which was a horrible decision. It was filled with a bunch of tweens who cheered when the tributes died. It was like they were the Capitol and completely misunderstood the point of the books. I recommend going tomorrow!
I’m going tonight at 8 too! I thought it was just a HI thing, obviously things have changed since I’ve been here. I’ll probably hit a matinee when I go again with a friend, but the premier showings I save for movies I’m super excited about – usually I wait till the weekend and do a Sunday morning showing.
Tomorrow!! I fell in love with the books right off the bat. I did see Catching Fire on opening night though. it was a midnight showing and the venue was packed!
I’m seeing it tonight in Australia! 🙂
Because of my work schedule and other plans this weekend I have to wait until next weekend to see it. I’m so bummed I have to wait a week to see it. And I have a lady crush on Jennifer Lawrence. If her face is on TV everything else in the world disappears. I have spent so much time on Youtube watching her interviews.
Haven’t read any of them nor seen any of the movies but I did go to the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows part 2. I know. I’m not really a dissenter. I’m just old and my kids have read them all. Have fun.
