Hitting theaters November 20, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 centers on Katniss Evereen’s (Jennifer Lawrence) final showdown with President Snow (Donald Sutherland). During the press conference to promote the film, Lawrence talked about the impact of The Hunger Games franchise.
On Friday November 14, a New York City press conference was held for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. Actors Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin, as well as director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson were among the participants.
During the press conference, Jennifer Lawrence talked about the “complicated” feelings she had in wrapping up The Hunger Games franchise with her co-stars (and close friends) Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth:
It was complicated because it was a long shoot. We were there for 10 months and it was hard and exhausting so there was a part of smelling the barn and wanting to wrap just to give our bodies a break. But realizing that when it was over we weren’t going to . . . we always (had) that and then we go and we do other stuff and then we come back and we have each other again. (And) realizing that was going to be gone was such a complicated mix of feelings.
