“The Hunger Games” may be ending for fans when “Mockingjay – Part 2” swoops into theaters this November, but for its stars, things are already coming to a close. The main cast shot their final scene last month, an emotional experience after four epic films together.
“It’s not the end,” star Josh Hutcherson told MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con. “It’s only the beginning.”
Hutcherson also revealed who was the most emotional on the last day of shooting: director Francis Lawrence.
“Francis,” he said. “I was like, ’Francis is crying?’ I didn’t even know he had tear ducts, that’s insane!”
He revealed that emotion took over while the director was giving a speech to the cast.
“It was so beautiful and shocking and a little scary, too,” he said. “The first time you see your dad cry you’re like, “ahh, I don’t know how to handle this!”
That doesn’t mean Hutcherson didn’t chop a few onions of his own on the last day.
“I definitely got emotional,” he said. “It’s sad. It’s a sad finish.”
