Brace yourselves, HUNGER GAMES fans, a new trailer for the final film in the franchise has been released and it has all of the feels.
This new trailer has a distinctly epic feel to it, focusing on Katniss rallying the Districts to point their weapons in the direction of Snow and the Capital. Fans of the books will no doubt recognize a few notable scenes and new characters (and will undoubtedly do their best not to cry when they do). For those unfamiliar with the books, the video description covers the plot:
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.
I have mixed feelings on the trailer, considering the fact the MOCKINGJAY is my least favorite book in the trilogy. However, I was extremely impressed with the adaptation of MOCKINGJAY PART 1, despite the fact that I hate it when film adaptations of books are broken into two parts. Based on the trailer, it looks like PART 2 will follow suit as an excellent and moving adaptation; I’ll just have to remember to pack some tissues when I head out to the theater.
MOCKINGJAY opens in theaters November 20th, 2015.
