“If Katniss was scared in the last movie, then she is almost numb in the next one. She’s been through so much,” Jennifer Lawrence told The New York Times recently about her Katniss Everdeen heroine in the ‘Hunger Games‘ movies. The final installment of this adapted trilogy of novels — stretched into two movies because money — has Lionsgate releasing more goods to get you psyched for the emancipation of Panem. Today they unveiled a new trailer (fairly promo-y and not that good to be honest), some new photos, and a new poster.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 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” is directed by Francis Lawrence and features a cast including Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland all reprising their original roles from the earlier films. The lineup also includes “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” co-stars Academy Award-winner Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson, and Evan Ross.
The film will be released in 2D, 3D, and IMAX3D cinemas on November 20th. Check out the new trailer, poster and photos below.
