Lorde to Provide First Single and Curate the Soundtrack for 'Mockingjay Part 1'

Lionsgate announced today that multiplatinum GRAMMY Award-winning recording star Lorde will curate the soundtrack album for the upcoming third installment of The Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.  In addition to hand-picking the artists for The Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack, Lorde will provide the first single for the highly anticipated film and album.  The soundtrack will be available via Republic Records this fall. 

Mockingjay director Francis Lawrence said of the collaboration:

I sat down with Lorde on the set of ‘Mockingjay’ this spring and I was immediately struck by how she so innately understood what we, as both fans and filmmakers, were trying to accomplish with the film. Her immense talent and keen understanding of Mockingjay’s characters and themes not only have enabled her to create a song of her own that completely captures the film’s essence, but her insight and passion for our project make her the perfect creative force to assemble the other songs on our soundtrack.  I can't wait to share what she's done with the fans -- it is truly remarkable.” 

"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance,” said Lorde.  “The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people.”

'Mockingjay Part 1' Cast Presents "Our Leader the Mockingjay" Trailer at Comic Con

Natalie Dormer, Mahershala Ali, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross were on hand today at Comic Con to present the new "Our Leader the Mockingjay" Mockingjay Part 1 trailer to guests at the Captiol Gallery Experience at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego. 

We were lucky enough to attend a press preview of the new trailer with some of the other Hunger Games fan sites, and got to do a meet and greet with cast members Mahershala Ali, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross. They were SO generous, kind, and sweet with all of us! Thanks so much, guys!

The fansite meet & greet. I'm in the front row in a green jacket + leopard shoes.

Natalie wasn't at the meet and greet (SAD FACE) she was running in from another panel. But she did get there in time to introduce the trailer to a very excited crowd on the Capitol Gallery floor, then all of the cast members took photos with the fans there. Natalie Dormer is a queen. She said something nice to every single fan snapping photos with her today.

 

We watched the trailer in a heavily-secured room, all bags were checked, and armed peacekeepers (and real security) watched our every move. This sucker is NOT leaking - at least not from Comic Con. You watch the trailer in individual pods on Samsung devices with head-sets. 

While I'd love to spill every last detail about the trailer to ALL OF YOU, about half of you don't want to be spoiled. So we'll give you our spoiler-free take on what we saw. 

Even though it’s only 1 minute long, the Our Leader the Mockingjay trailer feels enormous. It's violent. It's epic. My favorite thing about it is the look and feel of the districts. You’ll recognize a few right off the bat, and how Francis captures them is very unique but still beautifully faithful to the books. And Katniss. We see Katniss and she breaks your heart. The “I am. I will.” line you’ve been hearing all day will give you goosebumps long after you watch it. 

Can't wait to fangirl/boy over this one with all of you! It looks like the trailer will be online this Monday, July 28, at midnight ET (that’s 9pm PT on Sunday and 5am BST on Monday).

Inside The 'Mockingjay' Capitol Gallery Samsung Experience at Comic Con

Mockingjay Part 1 may not have had a Hall H panel at Comic-Con this year but they certainly had a presence. The Mockingjay Part 1 "Capitol Gallery" inside the Hard Rock Hotel outside San Diego Comic Con is unbelievable, immersive experience with multiple stations to explore. And plenty of free swag to obtain. We got a much closer look at the exhibit today.

You can snap a photo with one of the many peacekeepers stationed around the exhibit, or with Peeta and Johanna while perched in President Snow's throne.  

You can also grab a bite at Peeta's Bakery and a pressed juice at Haymitch's Elixirs. 

 

There is a station to make a shirt, tank or bag with a district on it (very popular, long lines), and the Gallery of Heroes, featuring the District Heroes posters. Eight stations in all and a LOT of cool (free!) stuff to take home!
