It’s almost time for our annual trip to Panem, folks — although it seems things have taken a turn for the worst since last we visited, as the latest trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 attests.
Lionsgate has labelled this as the final sizzle reel to be released (no, really), and it’s a doozy. Granted, those who have kept up with the extensive marketing campaign hitherto will recognize a lot of the footage. Essentially, the hotly-anticipated threequel picks up right where Catching Fire left off and ushers Katniss into the long-lost District 13.
Under the tutelage of President Coin (Julianne Moore), our heroine must inspire those around her to overthrow the forces of the capitol and bring peace back to Panem.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 will soar into theatres on November 21st, 2014. Check out the plot summary below and trailer above and let us know if you’re looking forward to visiting Panem again.
The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
