PanARMENIAN.Net - Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason are highlighted in the first living portraits released by "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1". Played by Josh Hutcherson, Peeta is the tribute from District 12 along with Katniss Everdeen. Johanna (Jena Malone) is the tribute from District 7 who becomes Peeta and Katniss' ally in the Quarter Quell, AceShowbiz said.
Peeta stands tall and true in his living portrait, wearing a "matte leather Unconditional ensemble showcasing a stone-like texture and channeling the victor's quiet strength, completed by shirt and shoes courtesy of Maison Martin Margiela. The paper collar piece, designed by David Mason, mirrors the sculptural elements in Johanna's dress and gives a stern ambiance to the baker's son."
In her motion poster, Johanna stuns in "an exquisite Alon Livne creation that 'juxtaposes the flowing drapery of classic statuary while the super modern and sculptural iridescent white bodice references the branch motif of the Panem Seal.' With plunging lines and slits as daring and divine as the warrior woman herself, every element of Johanna's ensemble (including her Alexander Wang shoes and hand-carved marble bangles by Chen Chen and Kai Williams) exudes her fierce strength and enduring pride - a true darling of the Capitol."
The first "Mockingjay" is shot back-to-back with the last entry, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2". Francis Lawrence, who directed the second installment "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", is back helming the next two movies. "Part 1" is due November 21 this year and "Part 2" will follow on November 20, 2015.
In this film, Katniss reluctantly leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol after surviving a deadly televised game twice in a row. Jennifer Lawrence returns as the heroine, while Liam Hemsworth plays her childhood friend Gale Hawthorne.
