"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" movie quotes continue the Hunger Games film series in the third installment of the science fiction adventure film franchise. Francis Lawrence directed the film which Danny Strong and Peter Craig adapted from the novel "Mockingjay" by Suzanne Collins. "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" opened in theaters in the United States on November 21, 2014.

In "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1," the action picks up after the events of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) was rescued from the Quarter Quell. With the help of the likes of Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman), President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore), Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) and others, Katniss has become the face of a revolution to take down the Capitol and President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

But this rebellion has the potential to turn into a full scale war, something that would most assuredly take out many of Katniss's loved ones, her sister Primm (Willow Shields) and love Gale (Liam Hemsworth) included. It also won't be easy, especially as Katniss's former ally Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) is now working for the Capitol, only making Katniss's love life that much more complicated.

As one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2014, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" opens alongside other great films including "Dumb and Dumber To," "Foxcatcher," "Beyond the Lights," "The Homesman," "Interstellar," "The Theory of Everything," "Nightcrawler," "Big Hero 6," "Before I Go to Sleep," "Horns," "John Wick," "White Bird in a Blizzard," "Fury," "The Best of Me," "The Book of Life," "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)," "The Judge," "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," "St. Vincent," and "Gone Girl."
