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
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.
If The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 left you wanting more, the wait for the final installment in the Hunger Games series is almost over. You still have a few more months left to go, but today we have the first official trailer for Mockingjay - Part 2 and it’s everything you wanted and needed.
It's a little difficult to top the first official teaser poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, which arrived a couple of days ago featuring a brutal, headless statue of President Snow. But today Jennifer Lawrence tried her best, revealing our first look at the final installment in the franchise and seemingly teasing the release of the first trailer.
Last month Lionsgate delivered the first official poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 — that stylish poster was exclusive to the Cannes film festival (which seemed a bit counterintuitive to the film’s message, but whatever), but the latest release is for everyone. The studio has unveiled a new teaser poster for the final installment in The Hunger Games franchise, and it looks like President Snow has lost his damn head.
Those attending the Cannes film festival this week (you lucky so-and-sos) will be able to pick up an exclusive “commemorative” poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. It also happens to be the first poster for the final installment (half installment?) in the acclaimed and insanely popular franchise. Oh, wait, did you forget? There’s still one more Hunger Games movie arriving this year.
