Lionsgate has unveiled a new trailer for this year’s hotly anticipated franchise topper The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, and as one might expect, it’s a rousing and star-stuffed preview that promises the epic conclusion to the YA blockbuster phenom that fans deserve.
Some long-time viewers of the franchise, which will span three books and four films (not counting possible spinoffs), complained that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 felt too much like cinematic foreplay, and the new preview for this final chapter seeks to set their fears to bed – if this look at the film is any indication, Mockingjay – Part 2 may well be the action event of the year.
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Academy Award®-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross all have roles in the sure-to-be action-packed series finale.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 arrives in theaters on November 20.
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.
