Okay, so Lionsgate may not be promoting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 or Insurgent in Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con this year. Yes it is disappointing to fans, especially since the former debuts in November, while the latter debuts early next year. While we have yet to see any footage from the film, Lionsgate has found a unique way to market the film’s highly anticipated first trailer. You won’t have to sit for hours waiting for it or in between panels you rather not sit through, instead you can just walk on over to the Samsung Galaxy Experience over at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego on Friday, July 25th, and experience seeing the trailer, with the cast (TBA) for yourself on Galaxy Tab S.
Yup the trailer premiere for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will be on a tablet. Not a big screen or any other screen other than 8.5 inches, but on a tablet. And if you are worried about not being able to see it because your not going to Comic-Con this year, then don’t fret, because you will be able to see a preview at your local Best Buy. Hit the jump for more.
The difference between the two is that the Samsung Galaxy Experience will have the full trailer, while the Best Buy stores will have just a preview. You didn’t think it will be that easy to see it, did you?
Not sure if seeing the first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 on a tablet is ideal, but the marketing campaign will promote the film and the Galaxy S Tablet. So if you are really itching to see it, then it might be in your best interest to skip some of the panels in Hall H on Friday, July 25, and mosey on over to the Hard Rock Hotel.
And if you already own a Galaxy S Tab, that’s okay, because that will be your chance to not only see the trailer, but download the Hunger Games Movie Pack App, via Google Play™ for access to exclusive content from The Hunger Games franchise. The app will be free to download on select Samsung devices beginning July 28th, and “will give Galaxy owners access to exclusive Hunger Games content, including scripts, book excerpts, video clips and more.”
