As much as I loved The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, I thought The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 was insultingly bad. It was clear this was a cash-grab that split a single story into an unnecessary two. I told all of my friends to wait to see the first part until the second was released. They don’t deserve to be judged until they’re glued together.
It all ends on November 20th, 2015 with Lionsgate’s release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, which will be heading to the San Diego Comic-Con. Ahead of the convention, kicking off tomorrow night, we have a series of character posters that are marked for war.
The blockbuster Hunger Games franchise has taken audiences by storm around the world, grossing more than $2.2 billion at the global box office. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 now brings the franchise to its powerful final chapter in which Katniss Everdeen [Jennifer Lawrence] realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival – they are for the future.
“With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale [Liam Hemsworth], Finnick [Sam Claflin] and Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.”
