Movie Time!

23 Nov

By, Joseph Rhoades

In 2012 the first of three Hunger Games movies was released.  For those who have read and experienced the books, the release of the movies was a much anticipated and exciting event.  The same goes for the third movie that was officially viewable in theaters November 21, 2014.  The Hunger Games; Mockingjay Part 1, begins the final movie for the final book in The Hunger Games Trilogy.

Early showing

Many excited fans were able to experience an early showing the day before the official release date.  This is a new and reoccurring theme that has begun with many of the new movies that are being released.  It originally started out being a midnight release, however it has evolved into being even earlier the day before the release date for many movies.  These times usually occur around 8, or 830 the night before.  The night before release is a very popular event for many of the fans.

“We have not completely sold out any of our showings for this evening but all of the auditoriums that we have only have 1-5 seats left. And compared to the last Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay has brought in a larger crowd the opening night” stated Regal Fox Theater employee Marsiella.  Every employee I spoke with was a fan of this series and was also a fan of the new movie.  I also have to say I enjoyed this film.

I personally like the second movie the best so far, however part one of the final movie was very well done. I am excited to see the second part of the movie when it is released.

This movie was a very anticipated film if there were so many people going to the early showings, and is a must see if you are a fan of the Hunger Games series.

“We are also expecting to see an estimated 600 people for the viewings for tonight and even more within the next 24 hours” stated Ashley Lopez.  The 600 is a count of the seats within the five auditoriums. This just shows how excited people are about viewing this new film.

A little about the movie

I do not want to ruin this movie for those of you who are planning on attending a showing, but I am going to go into some details about the movie.  As with every movie that has come from a book, it does not follow the book exactly. I do feel the producers did a fairly good job trying to follow the story line however.  Another thing I noticed about this movie and the others, was the mood or the overall feeling of the film changes with every movie.  This film was very brutal and had many sad aspects to it, that is the feeling a reader receives with the book also.

Get in on the action!

This film is now available for viewing all across the United States, and you can bet that it is within driving distance of where you are right now.  Some local locations to view this new and anticipated film, are:
