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.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 just hit DVD last week, but we've already got a new trailer and poster for Mockingjay — Part 2, which opens in theaters this November. But, if you're expecting to see a lot of Jennifer Lawrence, you're going to be disappointed.
In addition to being an Oscar-winning actress and the lead of a billion-dollar movie franchise in The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence can now add best-selling singer to her resume. The song “The Hanging Tree” was performed by Lawrence in Mockingjay — Part 1 and later released to radio stations where it debuted at #12 on the Hot 100, and on iTunes where it sold over 1 million copies. This are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which travels to District 13 for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay!
Lots of ‘Hunger Games’ news today for you Panemaniacs. In addition to ‘Mockingjay - Part 2’ coming out in IMAX 3D, Lionsgate also announced that the franchise may not end with the upcoming fourth film, which is due in theaters on November 20.
For the past two years, ‘The Hunger Games’ movies have topped the yearly box-office charts, beating two Marvel movies (‘Iron Man 3’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’) without the help of 3D ticket sales. Well, today Lionsgate announced that ‘Mockingjay, Part 2’ will be released in IMAX and 3D, which should put it squarely in the running with ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ and ‘Avengers 2’ as the biggest movie of 2015.
Sorry, Star-Lord. Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was just passed by ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ as the highest grossing film of 2014. And, making that feat all the more impressive: ‘Mockingjay’ reached that mark in just 62 days, without the help of 3D or IMAX.
2015 is going to be such a great year for movies—so great, in fact, that we couldn’t even narrow down our list of next year’s most anticipated films to just 10; we chose 25 instead (we’re loose cannons around here). But forget what we want. What are the most anticipated films according to moviegoing consumers like you, dear reader? A new poll reveals the top five most highly anticipated films of 2015, and the answers probably aren’t that surprising … but at least one of them is.
T-minus one week and counting until 2015 —and now that we’ve finally put our 2014 top-ten lists to bed, it’s time to turn our attention to the new year. From the looks of things so far, it should be a good one.
