“My dear Miss Everdeen, make no mistake, the game is coming to its end”, says Donald Sutherland’s President Snow, and if this ominous trailer for Mockingjay – Part 2 is anything to go by, he’s not selling the movie short.
The first full-length look at the final instalment in the Jennifer Lawrence-fronted adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ smash-hit novels teases an epic showdown between the President and Panem’s Mockingjay.
In the last film, Katniss Everdeen finally takes the fight for freedom to the heart of Panem, with troubled pal Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), the gallant Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and fan favourite Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) in tow.
When last we left our heroine she was struggling to cope with the fact that Peeta had been turned against her by Donald Sutherland’s President Snow, but now she’s got bigger things on her mind: namely toppling the dictator and his regime once and for all.
“Tonight, turn your weapons to the Capitol”, Katniss roars. “Tonight, turn your weapons to Snow”.
Fans have been eager to catch up with Katniss and co ever since the first teaser for the film dropped earlier this year, giving us a glimpse of Gwendoline Christie’s Hunger Games debut.
And there’s no doubt but that book lovers will be biting their nails at the sight of some potentially spoiler-iffic parachutes…
May the odds be ever in their favour when they head to cinemas in November to see for themselves how the 76th annual Hunger Games pan out.
