It seems like it’s about time we joined the revolution by watching the official new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
The focus of this last film in The Hunger Games installments is made very clear. Katniss must be the one to kill President Snow.
Nothing that’s good is safe while he’s alive.
This may be a little hard to accomplish because of the minefield of traps he’s set up inside the Capitol. Not only that, but he’s set out mutts (these terrifying-looking lizard things) to hunt for Katniss. We get a real quick glimpse of them toward the end. In fact, this sounds a lot like what a 76th Hunger Games would be, which is what Finnick points out to Katniss.
Some other shots that you should really be looking out for happen in the last few seconds of the trailer: those little parachutes that look like presents (I’m already starting to cry), a fire set off in a tunnel with stairs (I’m crying even more now), Johanna visiting Katniss, one of those lizard mutts, Tigris played by Eugenie Bondurant, and Katniss kissing Peeta.
Oh, and that meadow scene sometime in the middle of the trailer? It seems like there might be a nicer future for Katniss.
Go read the books!
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.
Mockingjay – Part 2 was directed by Francis Lawrence and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Jeffrey Wright, Donald Sutherland, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone and more.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 hits theaters on November 20, 2015.
