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.

The first clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 has arrived, along with Katniss’ first set of orders. In the new clip, which was released to celebrate the first advanced ticket sales for the film, Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss is grouped into her new squad.

If we gave you an informal poll right now about your most anticipated films for the remainder of the year, chances are Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 would be very high on the results of said poll — which makes this nifty new data from a consumer research group hardly surprising.
As The Hunger Games saga reaches its ends, it’s looking back to its beginning.
After a couple of days of non-stop news from the D23 expo, we finally have something that’s not Star Wars or Pixar-related. Another major franchise made a bit of a boo-boo over the weekend, as Lionsgate unwittingly unleashed a new poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, and it features what many feel is the absolute worst expletive that exists.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is going to be one the highest grossing films of 2015 no matter what, so every trailer and poster can’t help but feel ever-so-slightly redundant. Oh, remember that movie that you and everyone you know is already going to see anyway? Here’s an unnecessary reminder that it exists! And yet Lionsgate has been playing fans like a fiddle with their marketing campaign, and the latest trailer is one seriously impressive advertisement.
For four years, one of the hottest tickets at every Comic-Con was The Hunger Games panel, spotlighting the hugely popular film franchise about the adventures of Katniss Everdeen and the people of Panem. On Thursday, the cast and crew of The Hunger Games franchise — director Francis Lawrence, producer Nina Jacobson, and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and Willow Shields — took the stage at Hall H one last time to discuss this fall’s conclusion of the Hunger Games saga, Mockingjay — Part 2.
Katniss Everdeen is a superhero in her own right — a humble, brave young woman who unwittingly becomes a fearless leader and a symbol of rebellion against an elitist government. And in the new teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, Katniss looks the part of a legit superhero. She even has a cape!
Lionsgate probably doesn’t have to advertise The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. All they really have to do it announce a release date and watch the money roll in. But when you have a fanbase this dedicated and passionate, why not take every possible opportunity to whip them into a rabid frenzy? So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the new batch of character posters that have just arrived online.
Panem is heading to Comic-Con next week as The Hunger Games takes over Hall H on Thursday, kicking things off in (hopefully) spectacular fashion. Speaking of fashion, Lionsgate has released a new image from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, featuring Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss and Elizabeth Banks’ Effie having an intimate and quite stylish moment.
