Wedding! Revolution! Katniss’ powerful speeches!
The first teaser trailer of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2″ has just arrived and it is just filled with awesomeness. Truth be told, we pretty much expected it to be epic as this movie could be the final instalment of the “Hunger Games” franchise.
The trailer made its debut online after franchise star, Jennifer Lawrence, shared an official still of the film on her official Facebook page last week. Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson followed suit by sharing their individual shots on their respective Facebook pages as well.
Their pictures also came a few days after the official “Hunger Games” Twitter account released the first official poster, featuring the beheaded statue of the leader of the Capitol, President Snow (played by Donald Sutherland).
As seen in the trailer, Sam Claflin is reprising his role as Finnick Odair and a wedding ceremony was held for him and Annie Cresta (played Stef Dawson). The wedding had more purpose than just uniting Finnick and Annie as Plutarch Heavensbee decided that it was perfect for a new propo (“‘propaganda spots”), which will send a message to the Capitol that District 13’s population were safe and happy.
The trailer also gave us a first look at “Game of Thrones” star Gwendoline Christie’s role as Commander Lyme, one of the leaders of the rebellion against the Capitol. Originally from District 2, she was one of the first people to become part of the 2nd rebellion. However, she was willing to do anything to claim District 2 for the district’s side.
The 2nd part of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” will pick up where the previous film left off, with Katniss and her fellow Panem rebels preparing for a war against President Snow. Katniss will team up with a unit from District 13 and a group of her closest friends including Hutcherson’s Peeta and Hemsworth’s Gale to engage in an all-out revolution against the autocratic Capitol.
Katniss will also confront the evil ruler in a final showdown.
Directed by Francis Lawrence, “The Hunger Games” is the film adaptation of the Suzanne Collins’ famed YA fiction trilogy. The 1st book was adapted into a live-acton movie in 2012 and immediately gained a huge following. The 2nd book “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” was subsequently turned into a film while the 3rd book “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” has been split into 2 films instead.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2″ is scheduled for release on 20th November 2015.
