There are only a handful of huge releases left in 2015, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is most definitely one of them. Today, a brand new TV spot has been released which teases the “epic finale” of the beloved franchise. It includes some great new footage from the movie, and definitely points to that tagline being true.
Here’s the synopsis for the highly anticipated release:
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.
Fans of the franchise were divided when it was revealed that the studio had decided to split the final Hunger Games book in two, and the first Mockingjay movie was criticized for its lack of action as it slowly built towards the final chapter. Watching the films back to back, though, will no doubt be more satisfying, but it’s still made the year long wait for the conclusion pretty difficult.
Regardless, we’re now just weeks away from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2‘s release, and it’s impossible not to be excited after watching the above TV spot.
