    Would you agree that the Mockingjay whistle, also known as Rue’s four-note whistle, is an iconic part of the film? Well, we decided to test the cast at the LA premiere to see if they could re-create the famous tune.

    Becca Frucht: Throughout The Hunger Games series a four-note whistle is a haunting reminder of the rebellion. I was at the LA Premiere of Mockingjay Part 1 and challenged celebs to whistle the tune.

    Some cast members nailed it, some didn't, and some were too embarrassed to even try.

    Erika Bierman: I am actually really good at whistling, but like right now my throat is like really --Becca Frucht: Just try it.

    Erika Bierman: Okay.

    Mahershala Ali: Oh no! Because I can't whistle anything.

    Becca Frucht: Can either of you do The Hunger Games whistle, the like haunting whistle?

    Joey Graceffa: [Whistles]Erika Bierman: I going to sound like really cocky right now, it's probably going to be like really bad.

    Patrina Miller: [Whistles] I think I was close.

    Becca Frucht: That's so good!

    Patrina Miller: I am a singer but I don't know if that's it.

    Elden Henson: The very first day I'm supposed to do this whistle thing, and I just faked it man, I can't even really whistle.

    Evan Ross: I don't, well she is a - I could do [Whistles], I don't know the whole thing. I don't know the whole thing.

    Elden Henson: My wife hates whistling, so I am not even allowed to whistle at home.

    Francis Lawrence: [Whistles]Becca Frucht: Very good!

    Francis Lawrence: It was close. I bet you the notes are off but it sounds about right.

    Erika Bierman: Okay [Whistles]Becca Frucht: That was amazing!
