The Hunger Games new trailer has finally been released!
Mockingjay Part 2 is the final film in the franchise and is going to come to theaters November 20th. Jennifer Lawrence gave us a sneak peek into the film – before the trailer came out – on her Facebook page. She shared a photo which was the first glimpse into the final instalment. The photo was of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) and Messala (Evan Ross) – all weapon clad and ready for war.
We get to see a taste of what Finnick and Annies wedding will look like – and it’s absolutely gorgeous! It’s a beautiful and green step away from the usually grey and bleak landscape. The past films have been inherently dark, so it was nice to see a bit of happiness and celebration in the trailer. Katniss even let’s herself be happy for a moment as we see her dancing with her “little duck” (her sister Primrose).
Jennifer Lawrence gets to tap into her inner rage. This film is going to be all about revenge and finishing off what the Capitol has started. Katniss says that “Snow has to pay for what he’s done”. Snow, of course, is President Snow. So watch out Donald Sutherland! She’s coming for you and she’s got all of District 13 behind her!
The biggest sigh of relief is getting to see Peeta! He seems to be less of the angry zombie he was in the last film. He seems to be back to his sweet, Katniss loving, self as we see the pair hugging it out.
We also get a glimpse of Commander Lyme who is played by Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie. She looks almost exactly like her GOT character, Brienne of Tarth. Tall, strong and not someone you want to mess with!
I was sitting on the edge of my seat through the whole trailer. Admiring Everdeen’s determination, cringing at President Snow’s smug attitude, and swooning over Effie’s hair, makeup and costumes (Elizabeth Banks is amazing!).
The only disappointing thing? We have to wait until November to go see the film!!
