The odds were ever in the favor of a group of lucky Hunger Games fans in Austin earlier this week who got to see a special sneak preview of the third installment, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 at the glorious Alamo Drafthouse theater, where you can eat good food, imbibe some alcohol, and watch a flick without worrying if people’s phones will go off. Oh they’ll kick ya right out if you do that, swifter than the out-of-shape guy running for the Cornucopia.
Immediately following the screening, our own Brian Walton conducted a Q&A with the film’s director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson about the differences between the book and the movie, what adapting the third part of a book trilogy in to two parts was like, and more. Above you’ll see a lovely two-minute excerpt of the event. Please enjoy!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is in cinemas nationwide beginning today.
