Here are the highlights from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 viral marketing campaign! Lionsgate began ramping up the viral marketing campaign with a message from President Snow a few weeks back.

Here's the first viral video "Together As One":

The video is incredibly popular and got 1.06 million views in its first week on YouTube. It's over 9 million now.

They also shared a series of posters highlighting the "District Heroes" of Panem from the Technology (3), Lumber (7), Livestock (10), Grain (9), Mining (12), Fishing (4) and Transportation (6) Districts. The most heart-wrenching is the one of the little girl working in the mines.

Yesterday, another video was released along with that spotlights President Snow (Donald Sutherland) along with Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Joanna Mason (Jena Malone). There's also a surprise appearance of Jeffrey Wright as Beetee. For me, that character was underused in the last film and I'm looking forward to seeing a minority take on more of a role in the films. There was a small, but vocal, group of fans that complained his character was changed from white to black for the movie. Personally, his performance was the most memoreable part and I didn't have a problem with it.

Here's the latest video "Unity":

Here's an official statement from the Capitol

Never have we been more unified as a nation. The Capitol and the districts are bound together in solidarity, striving to forge a stronger future.

To commemorate this resolve, the Capitol mandates your viewing of President Snow's Second Panem Address: “Unity.”

Didn't care for the first one, so doubt I'll watch this one.

Never had any interest in this series (books or movies) past the first one. But all my female "friends" on Facebook are stoked I'm sure.

Wow, are those wax figures? They look incredible. Little girls always break my heart, so yes that's the one that speaks to me the most. Oh and congrats to Nigel on the book!

They're not wax, but I'm not sure how they got the actors to look like that Medeia. I feel you on that.

This series was so much fun to read! Book 1 lays the foundation for my
favorite of the series, book 2. It is action packed and I found my self
finishing it in less than a day. I saw the movie as well, and the book
and movie are very close; of course the book provides a bit more
insight and detail.
