hunger games mockingjay part 2 marches loud proud cast images 2015The trailer for the fourth and final installment of The Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay – Part 2, has officially made its way onto the Internet.

It really hypes up the final battle for the citizens of Panem as they take on the Capitol, more specifically President Snow.

The movie continues the story as after participating in two brutal Hunger Games, Katniss decided it was time to defy the Capitol and lead the repressed people of Panem in a rebellion.

In the previous film, Katniss was made the face of the rebellion, and furthers this position as she asks her fellow citizens to “turn [their] weapons to the Capitol, turn [their] weapons to Snow!”

Mockingjay – Part 2 brings back plenty of familiar faces, of course Lawrence starring as Katniss, as well as co-stars Josh Hutcherson (Peeta), Liam Hemsworth (Gale), Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland (President Snow) and the majority of the cast from the previous films.

The film also features the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. The director, Francis Lawrence, explained that he decided not to use CGI for any of Hoffman’s final scenes, and instead adapted the script in order to maintain his real presence throughout the movie.

At Comic-Con, director Francis Lawrence stated that this final film is “where Katniss gets back into action.” This is not to surprising, considering the previous film was much more dialogue heavy and was obviously setting up fans for the action-packed finale.

In the preview, it is shown that the people of Panem are gearing up to march into the Capitol, which is already being filled with traps by Snow and his team. Just like in the Hunger Games arena, the Capitol is using their technologies to kill off the rebels in the most inventive way they can. They are manipulating the battlefield to make “sport” out of the citizens’ deaths.

Although it no longer takes place in an arena, this battle between the people and the Capitol is undoubtedly going to be the “76th Hunger Games.”

The trailer showcases that film makers have upped the ante when it comes to effects, as massive tidal waves of black tar fills the streets of Panem and floors of steel erupt right under Katniss’ feet. Also, they give a glimpse of mutant-like creatures, which many are speculating to be “mutations,” which are described in the Hunger Games books (by Suzanne Collins). These creatures, half-lizard and half-human, are another creation of the Capitol to stop the rebellion.

Although the trailer didn’t hint too much on what happens in the Peeta-Gale-Katniss love triangle, it is assumed there will be some form of resolution presented in the final film. Actors Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Jennifer Lawrence have continuously expressed how close they have become since beginning the series, which adds to the chemistry between the three on film. They have created a love triangle that rightfully rivals the #TeamJacob and #TeamEdward situation we saw during the Twilight craze.

In addition to the visual environments, the films have also gained some recognition for their elaborate costume designs. In the past films, fans saw Katniss decked out in morphing costumes, as well as Elizabeth Bank’s character Effie Trinket donning equally eye-catching, Lady Gaga-esque outfits. The promotional pictures of Jennifer Lawrence for Mockingjay – Part 2 seem to promise even more interesting costumes, as they show her in a striking all-red suit that seemingly exudes the heroine’s determination to defeat Snow once and for all.

The trailer brings a warning from President Snow, saying “Make no mistake, my dear Miss Everdeen (Katniss), the game is coming to its end.”

This line puts everything into place. Through politics, action, death, love, and everything else that can be jam-packed into this finale, somehow the “games” will end. Audiences will finally get answers to all the loose ends. How successful will Katniss be as the leader of the rebellion against the Capitol? Will Peeta or Gale get the final claim on Katniss’ heart? Who has to die in the crossfire? And inevitable, who will come out victorious, Katniss or Snow?

Unfortunately, these questions won’t be answered until November 20, 2015, when The Hunger Games – Mockingjay Part 2 hit the theatres.

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 Synopsis:

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 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.
