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

The first full day of the Hall H festivities started off with its biggest panel of the day for Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II. The film franchise comes to its end later this year, after having grossed over $1 billion at the box office worldwide. The studio has done some brilliantmarketing in the past, which is expected to continue until its release.
But today is one of the biggest days to promote the movie, and moderator Conan O’Brien was on hand to talk to director Francis Lawrence, producer Nina Jacobson, and film stars Willow Shields, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, and Jennifer Lawrence about the final half of the final chapter of the series. More on the story below.
Lionsgate has released the first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay – Part 2. It is our first look that the final film for the franchise that has grossed over $1 billion worldwide. Jennifer Lawrence reprises her role as Katniss Everdeen, The Girl On Fire, who has inspired the oppressed nation of Panem to stand up against President Snow’s (Donald Sutherland) tyranny.

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.
Casting for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is quite literally heating up. Following the news that Amanda Plummer would be joining the cast of the film as the silent but deadly Wiress, comes news that three major roles have been cast.
It’s being reported that Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman) is in talks to join the cast as Finnick Odair, Melissa Leo (Red State, The Fighter) has been approached to play as Mags, and Tony Shalhoub (Monk, Galaxy Quest) could play Beetee.
