Fiery explosions! Emotionally-charged shouted speeches! Jennifer Lawrence’s withering, hardened gaze as she stares off into the distance!
You guessed it – the very first full length trailer for Mockingjay Part 2 has finally arrived, after weeks of anticipation, speculation, and torturously brief teasers released by Lionsgate.
“The game is coming to its end,” intones President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the epic new trailer just released for the final installment of The Hunger Games saga, and so too is this beloved film franchise.
It’s been a long, harrowing journey for our hero Katniss (to say the least) and the trailer highlights the position of leadership that she’s both fallen into and risen up to. There’s a glimpse of a Peeta-Katniss kiss (the first in too long a while!) and we hear Katniss give a rousing speech imploring the rebels to turn their weapons against the oppressive Capitol and the villainous President Snow.
The trailer definitely has a "closing time" feel, as the many plot points at play throughout the previous three films are speeding along toward their respective conclusions. How will the Katniss/Peeta/Gale triangle finally resolve? Will Katniss and the rebels successfully assassinate President Snow?
Mockingjay Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Donald Sutherland. It hits theaters on November 20th.
