Peeta wants to know if what Katniss is doing is “Real” or not real
I’m usually pretty lenient when it comes to movie adaptations of books, basically because it’s bound to happen that a lot events, quotes, situations, even characters, don’t end up on the screen, whether big or small. However, given that expectation, there’s a certain kind of giddy-ness when a favorite scene or favorite quote from the book does make it onto the screen. This “Real” or Not Real clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 is one of those scenes.
I really love the intimacy and openness between Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) in this little clip. I know it’s hard to show their relationship grow in these films given the time frame as compared to what we know in the book about them. So, when things like this are shown, it makes for a happy Hunger Games fan.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 now brings the franchise to its powerful final chapter in which Katniss Everdeen realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival – they are for the future.With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale [Liam Hemsworth], Finnick [Sam Claflin] and Peeta – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
