Katniss Wants Peace But Prepares For War In New Poster For The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2


With the Cannes film festival getting underway today, a bevy of festival hopefuls will line the Croisette as the each compete in their respective categories. And though the annual event isn’t known for attracting blockbuster attention – Mad Max: Fury Road‘s inclusion notwithstanding – Lionsgate has unveiled a commemorative print poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, which sees series heroine Katness Everdeen and her sister Prim pose for a shot that wouldn’t look out of place on American Horror Story.

Revealed via Twitter earlier today, here’s the eerie print in full.

While we’re still a ways away from the conclusive chapter in the studio’s lucrative series, Mockingjay – Part 2 will no doubt be a monumental event come November, closing the book on the adventures of Katniss Everdeen and her fellow tributes. How and ever, there have been ongoing rumors that Lionsgate is exploring ways to continue the series beyond Mockingjay – Part 2, much like Warner Bros.’ tactic with the Harry Potter prequels, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

As for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, Francis Lawrence will return in the director’s chair, overseeing Jennifer Lawrence, Donald Sutherland, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Sam Claflin and Jena Malone in time for the film’s November 20 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 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.
