The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 represents uncharted territory for this four-film saga.
It is the first Hunger Games film not to follow Katniss Everdeen into actual Hunger Games, after all. The Battle Royale-style concept that powered the first movie is in the rearview and director Francis Lawrence is barreling into full-blown war and, soon enough, the climax of the whole series.
“There’s definitely some battles. There’s some of the first glimpses of real war in this movie. And the scale gets quite big," he says.
In the two-part finale hitting theaters this year and next, Lawrence explains, “There’s an atonal shift from some of the last movies, but they’re still very emotional, very sweeping, [on a] grand scale with some levity and humor.”

The Giver finally arrives in theaters this weekend, but Jeff Bridges was trying to adapt the novel years ago.
Since its publication in 1993, Lois Lowry's book has become a staple, showing up on required reading lists and introducing heady, challenging concepts to the febrile minds of young readers everywhere. The novel, which won the distinguished Newbery Medal, predates the current boom in dystopian young adult fiction, having been influential on many popular books and their cinematic counterparts.
Bridges, an Oscar-winner and American treasure, almost immediately seized upon the novel's potential.
"I originally wanted to direct my father, Lloyd Bridges, in the film and I wanted to make a movie that my kids could see. They were all young kids at the time," the actor revealed at the Los Angles press day for The Giver.
"I was looking at a catalog of children’s books and came across this wonderful cover of this grizzled old guy," he recalled. "And I thought, 'Oh this is great.' I read it and I was knocked out on a kid-book level but also as an adult. I thought, 'Oh this is a movie I’d love to see.' It turns, out, that Lois took that photograph of the guy on the cover."
