As The Hunger Games franchise comes to a close with Mockingjay — Part 2, it has truly zeroed-in on Katniss’s (Jennifer Lawrence) desire to bring about real change. Not just with speeches but with action. In two new clips released for the upcoming installment, directed by Francis Lawrence, there’s a palpable sense of the horror endured by enemies of the Capitol, including Johanna (Jena Malone) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson).
In fact, Peeta isn’t even sure what’s real anymore, asking Katniss if her protecting him is a real thing. “It is,” she tells him. “That’s what you and I do. Keep each other alive.” But the clips also betray dark portends, and Katniss enacts her plan to kill President Snow (Donald Sutherland).
Check out the clips below, as well as these two other new clips released recently. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 will land in theaters on November 20th, and also stars Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, and Sam Claflin.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2:
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.
