New trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 brings the battle to the Capitol

FIRST LOOK: Trailer For 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2'
The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 is here, and it’s got everything we’ve come to expect from the franchise films: striking cinematography, high-quality acting, and dramatic action sequences. It’s almost a shame to watch it, because it makes the film’s November box office debut seem so far away.

The second of the series’ (supposedly) final installment will bring the battle against President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and his oppressive regime straight to their door. Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) will revisit the site of her Hunger Games training, but this time, she’ll be there to shoot more than just targets and the apple out of a roast pig’s mouth. Along with fellow rebel fighters Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), and Finnick Odair (Sam Clafin), she’ll make it her mission to make Snow “pay for what he’s done.” The trailer shows just what a difficult task that will be. “Make no mistake, the game isn’t over,” Snow says with a creepy smile.

The fourth film in The Hunger Games saga, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, is the second part of the adaptation of Suzanne Collins’s book, Mockingjay. After the success of the book series, Lionsgate brought them to the silver screen, and each has been a roaring financial success. The film franchise is currently one of the highest grossing of all time, and Mockingjay – Part 2 should bump it up the list when it opens on November 20. Understandably, the production company isn’t any more eager than fans are to see the dystopian fun end. In February, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said the company was actively considering possible Hunger Games prequels or sequels. Until then, we’ll savor the fact that there’s one just months away.

Whether The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 is the final film or not, it’s one of the most anticipated premieres of the year. With the first trailer out, fans everywhere can celebrate being that much closer to seeing it in theaters.
