The marketing campaign for Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is kicking off in a very big way. Yesterday came the release of a broken statue of President Snow with a mockingjay, the insignia of Katniss and the rebellion, painted in the background. Now comes a new image that shows that the rebellion is packing some major heat.
Below are images of the broken statue and a still from the film which shows Katniss leading Gale, (Liam Hemsworth), Messalla (Evan Ross) and Finnick (Sam Claflin) on what we think is a dangerous mission.
The image is brought to us by Lawrence who revealed it on the film’s official Facebook page. In it, we see Katniss taking the lead. Armed with her trusty bow, Gale and Messalla bring their guns, while Finnick wields a spear. Although there is no real context in the photo, she did provided the following caption to get fans excited: 6.9.15 #MockingjayPart2 #Unite
The date can only mean we will get our first glimpse of the film in the form of a teaser or trailer. Mockingjay – Part 2 is due out in theaters in November of this year, so the timing is about right.
Also starring Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, Julianne Moore, and Donald Sutherland, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 opens November 20, 2015. It is directed by Francis Lawrence.
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.
THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Natalie Dormer, with Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland. THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
