'Mockingjay Part 1' Featured in Entertainment Weekly's Fall Movie Preview

Many thanks to QuarterQuell.org for the untagged still.

A new still of Katniss Everdeen and details on her grittier new appearance in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 are featured in Entertainment Weekly's latest Fall Movie Preview issue. EW talked with Francis Lawrence about Katniss' transition to reluctant rebel leader and some of the visual aspects of the film. 

 

The digital issue has an interactive photo with additional details on Katniss and Mockingjay:

 

1. Melancholy Mood

Mockingjay introduces a more somber color palette in its new costumes and locales, including rebel headquarters in District 13. "You're sort of hit with the harsh reality of the consequences of war," director Francis Lawrence says.

2. Straight Shooter

After shooting the Hunger Games movies, Jennifer Lawrence has become quite the archer. She didn't have to practice too much says her director. True to Suzanne Collins' novel, it's Jeffrey Wright's Beetee who designs Katniss' new arrows with special explosive capabilities.

3. Combat-Ready

Katniss dons sleek body armour with protective boots, knee and elbow pads, and a tailor-made chest plate that sparkles with an iridescent indigo sheen recalling the feather-trimmed gown she wore in Catching Fire. "It's the warrior version of her mockingjay look," says the director.

4. A Rebel's Reminder

Katniss' trademark gold-plated mockingjay pin had been exchanged for a new black-on-black token. "Stylistically, this is something that Cinna designed for her before he was beaten in Catching Fire," Francis Lawrence says.

 

OK, who else is dying to get their hands on one of those matte black Mockingjay pins? Someone please make them immediately. 

The digital issue is available now and the magazine hits newsstands Friday.

Many thanks to our friends at QuarterQuell.org for the larger and untagged version of the Katniss still at the top of the article!

Tara Bennett tweeted that she interviewed Francis Lawrence (@Hibbits on twitter) for a Sci Fi Magazine article. We'll be looking forward to that one, Tara!! FYI, last year Tara wrote the cover story on Catching Fire for Sci Fi's December 2013 issue. It hit newsstands October 13th - ish if you're trying to figure out when we'll see all of this press.
