London will host 'Mockingjay' world premiere

Following in the blazing path to box-office riches of Catching Fire, Mockingjay: Part 1 will have its world premiere in London on Nov. 10—more than a week before it opens in theaters around the globe on Nov. 21.

In 2013, Lionsgate unveiled the second chapter of the Hunger Games franchise in England’s capitol, which has no obvious link to Suzanne Collins’ books but is a glamorous, cosmopolitan city situated in a time-zone that is convenient to tuned-in fans from multiple continents. Last November, the premiere was followed by mostly positive reviews, which only boosted worldwide anticipation for the film. When it opened in America, it grossed $158.1 million in its opening weekend and went on to be the year’s biggest hit, topping Marvel’s most glamorous superhero, Iron Man. Lionsgate might be a little superstitious, but topping Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy to take the crown for a second consecutive year seems well within the film’s reach.

American audiences will have to wait until Nov. 17, when Mockingjay debuts in Los Angeles.

So you find her in a more agitated place. She’s distraught, confused, angry.” READ FULL STORY
