In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, we witness our archery-loving heroine Katniss Everdeen shatter the games forever. As she endeavors to save Peeta and a suffering nation that looks up to her as a symbol of resistance, she expands the stakes of personal survival and political revolution.
Relive the epic trailer in full below:
However, in anticipation of the movie's home video release, two deleted scenes have surfaced as teasers for the special features that will be offered on DVD and Blu-Ray, allowing fans an exclusive look into previously unseen content.
Check out the two scenes below and let me know what you think:
Deleted scene 1 - Katniss & Haymitch
Katniss and Haymitch have an underground tiff over Peeta being left behind.
In the heated conversation, Katniss angrily attacks Haymitch, saying "you promised me you would save Peeta!"
While her mentor quietly agrees, he also reminds her that not all is lost and that despite both of them breaking their promises, they are "still in the game."
He is so committed to the resistance that he also reiterates his determination to stay sober, admitting:
"I want a bottle so bad [...] I'm ready to distill my own turnips."
Take a look for yourself:
Deleted scene 2 - Katniss's terrible make-up
When you're Katniss, you tend to have a lot on your plate, like saving Peeta for instance, or leading a near-impossible rebellion. That's why sitting around to getting a full face of make-up like you're getting ready for prom might not be that high on your agenda.
In this scene, an incompetent glam-up duo attempt to beautify the Mockingjay heroine. Admirably, Katniss silently endures having her eyelids clumsily smeared with eyeshadow and has a horrifying shade of pink blush dabbed on her cheeks.
Thankfully, Effie comes to her rescue, scolding them that "this is the face of a revolution, not some cave painting!"
She promises that together, they will make "this work, once I fix this mess."
Here is the clip in full:
Clearly, the District 13 make-up artists need to brush up on their skills before they decide to paint the face of the revolution. Thank goodness Effie is on their case!
What do you guys think?
Should these two clips have been included? Why do you think they were deleted in the first place?
Although these are perfectly adequate scenes, I think it's understandable that they weren't included in the final cut. They aren't exactly incredibly vital to the storyline, are they?
