Panem is at war. Four movies deep and at last, Lionsgate’s YA franchise is on the verge of hitting its crescendo with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, and today’s all-new TV clip showcases that it has no intention to go out on a whimper.
Arriving in tandem with a slew of new images for the conclusive sequel, today’s teaser is designed to ramp up the core conflict between Jennifer Lawrence’s returning heroine Katniss Everdeen and President Snow (Donald Sutherland), the power-mongering tyrant she’s destined to overthrow. From grand sweeping shots of Panem on the brink to the more heartfelt moments between Katniss and Prim, Mockingjay – Part 2 also harbors a lot of emotional beats amid its parade of CG-laden effects, and we’re hoping that shines through in the final feature.

The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
