Director Francis Lawrence Reveals His Secrets About ‘Hunger Games Mockingjay – Part 2’

Recently launched “Hunger Games Mockingjay – Part 2,” which is also Jennifer Lawrence’s one of the most anticipated work of all times, has been witnessing a milder response since its opening at the Box office last week. The film has been reported to have earned 101 million dollars in its first week, which is quite low according to the expectations from the film. Meanwhile, director Francis Lawrence comes up with more details about the film. Read On!

In an interview with Los Angeles Times he discussed what exactly could have been improved and incorporated into the franchise’s last film, which could have acted as a catalyst in improving the film’s box office grossing. In the interview, Francis has clearly indicated his affirmation on the fact that all parts of the franchise’s books might not be able to create impact into reader’s minds, knowing that the first part has done extremely well.

He also sticked to the fact that keeping box office rhythm in mind, it is not always necessary that second movie is surely going to perform better than the first one. It has been a matter of surprise to him since the latest part couldn’t reach the desired expectation levels.

As he signed for the second movie, Francis explained, “I didn’t want to reinvent, I wanted to make the book. Everybody was with me on that; obviously so was Suzanne Collins.” He further revealed in the interview that Suzanne has proved to be a good collaborator. Talking about Jennifer Lawrence, the director feels good about her old similar attitude. According to him, she has always believed on her instinct and never actually rehearsed for some of the scenes.

Becoming a bit emotional, Francis Lawrence explained how the entire shooting of the film has been a wonderful journey, peculiarly, the last scene of the production depicting Woody (Harrelson), being a major emotional one. The whole crew of the film has been away for a long time from their homes and Francis feels great about a nice ending to the film’s production, despite of the fact that the last part couldn’t create a magic on the silver screen.
