Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games film franchise is a four-part adaptation of the trilogy of the same name. Set in a dystopian future that was once North America, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is thrust into the dangerous competition called the Hunger Games, a nationally televised event in which “tributes,” a boy and a girl from each of the 12 districts, battle to the death until only one person survives.
Katniss along with her fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellarck (Josh Hutcherson) come out as victors but also sparking a revolution amongst the impoverished districts. In order to snuff out that spark, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) holds the Third Quarter Quell, in which previous winners of the Hunger Games have to battle amongst each other once more.
Lionsgate has released a new trailer for the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, the final installment of The Hunger Games film franchise. But this isn’t a traditional trailer by any means, instead of showing footage of the action, tension, and romance, it focuses solely on the bonds between Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Primrose Everdeen (Willow Shields), and shows how their relationship has evolved throughout the three films.
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.
