The fight against President Snow heats up in a new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and the rest of District 13 turn their weapons to The Capitol for the concluding chapter of this sci-fi sensation.
Watch the new trailer for The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 trailer after the jump!
At first I wasn’t sure that this was the trailer that was shown to us at Comic-Con, but it appears the music has just been changed for the final cut, because all the dialogue that I remember (and recapped afterwards) is still here in the trailer, including a couple stirring lines from Peeta (Josh Hutcherson). We were told this trailer wasn’t coming out for awhile, but I guess Lionsgate wanted to jump the gun.
This looks like quite the epic conclusion to the sci-fi franchise, complete with a makeshift Hunger Games in The Capitol as President Snow (Donald Sutherland) has turned the entire city into a massive arena full of traps. Surely not everyone will make it out alive, though fans already know who makes it in the end.
For more on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, check out our recap of the Comic-Con panel, which is basically a farewell to the franchise and fans who have welcomed the series to San Diego for years. We’ll have plenty more on this final chapter as the fall release gets closer so stay tuned.
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.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 arrives on November 20th.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
