About the blooper reel and such, I think that Lionsgate didn't want to give everything away in the first DVD, maybe they're reserving all those deleted scenes and gag reel for future DVD editions, just like they did with HP where they gave new footage for dvds editions long after the movies
Absolutely! That’s actually the example they gave to us when telling us there were no deleted scenes.
hello! sorry to bother you, but i was just wondering why the bloopers/gag reel wasn't included in the behind the scenes? did lionsgate mention anything related to that at the special features screening?
Unfortunately they didn’t mention the blooper reel. I’m wondering myself why that does not exist. It seems like instead of having many separate features, they put most of it in the World of The Hunger Games. I think if fans cry out for things like deleted scenes and blooper reels, Lionsgate will listen and hopefully put those things on future DVDs.
You are referring to the deleted scenes? When we went to Lionsgate, they said that the version Gary showed to Lionsgate is pretty much the version they went with. This means that there were no deleted scenes that went through post production. As we’ve seen from the DVD features, there are indeed scenes that were filmed that did not make it into the film. It’s possible they are saving those for later DVD box set releases.
“I’m surprised how little the fandom seems to discuss Peeta’s abuse. To me, his childhood with an abusive parent influences his decisions as much as Katniss’ childhood with an invisible parent. Katniss had to kill to survive, to become the parent and feed her family. Killing is about survival. For Peeta, as the victim of abuse, violence is a last resort. It’s the reason he made it through two arenas with his hands mostly clean. Katniss views his pacifism as a sign that he’s just deep-down better than most people, but it can easily be tied to a childhood of physical and verbal abuse at the hands of a woman who was supposed to protect him from harm. It explains his role as both pacifist and protector.”—bigbigbigday006 wrote this under one of her doodles, and I fell in love with the thought put into this. I agree whole-heartedly. (via tweetleweed)
