This year marked the last time that The Hunger Games would be at Comic-Con, unless they make spinoffs, but it will be the last one for the base source material at least. With only a few more months left until the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Lionsgate – who has done am absolute marvelous job marketing the film franchise from beginning to end – has released the trailer that was seen at the convention a few weeks back. And while it may be the same trailer, it is still exciting to watch nonetheless
Check out the latest trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 below.
Last night, fresh off their SDCC 2015 panel (of which Conan was the moderator), Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Helmsworth visited Conan O’Brien to talk about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, and the crazy ride that all of this has been.
Lionsgate has released a new teaser poster as well as a motion poster for The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 2 in advance of the studio’s panel tomorrow at San Diego Comic-Con. Both posters feature Jennifer Lawrence reprising her role in the film franchise as Katniss Everdeen, aka, The Girl On Fire, aka The Mockingjay.
Fans who stick around to see the after credits scene for the Hunger Games movies may have noticed the progression of the mockingjay breaking free from its circular imprisonment. This goes for those teaser posters as well.
And now with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 opening in theaters this November, Lionsgate has released both the teaser poster and trailer for the film. Hit the jump to check them out.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland, gets it home video release today and it is worth buying for the special features alone.
Based on the first half of the third book of The Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay Part 1 continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, formerly of District 12, who sacrificed herself to join the Hunger Games when her sister’s number came up in the worst lottery ever. Partnering with Peeta, they combine forces to beat the system. Catching Fire, the second book in the trilogy, had Katniss and Peeta go through the Games again, this time with all the previous winners. In Mockingjay Part 1, Peeta had been left behind at the Capitol and is their spokesman, and Katniss is recruited by Plutarch and President Coin. She decides to be their Mockingjay, reluctantly, but comes to realize that “with great power comes great responsibility.”
