With The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 set to hit theaters on November 20, 2015, it’s about time to see some marketing related to that film. Last year’s Mockingjay Part 1 ended on something of a cliffhanger, leaving those who haven’t enjoyed the books in the dark as to what will happen next. This trailer makes it clear that all-out war is in the cards:
The Hunger Games has been a surprisingly good movie series. The first film caught me way off guard and the second film blew me away. To be entirely honest, Mockingjay Part 1 didn’t thrill me as much, mostly because it felt so incomplete. Hopefully the conclusion will fix that issue and make for grand finale worthy of the franchise. By all accounts, this epic looking trailer is making it seem that way. What do you guys think?
The blockbuster Hunger Games franchise has taken audiences by storm around the world, grossing more than $2.2 billion at the global box office. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 now brings the franchise to its powerful final chapter in which Katniss Everdeen [Jennifer Lawrence] realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival – they are for the future.
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale [Liam Hemsworth], Finnick [Sam Claflin] and Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
