It’s taken Katniss Everdeen four films, but she’s finally making her way to the Capitol to confront the nefarious President Snow once and for all…and she’s not alone. The latest trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is even better than the first, comprised almost entirely of hero shots and action sequences, set to a climactic drum score. It’s time for Panem to turn their eyes — and weapons — to Snow.
