Lionsgate has released a new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 trailer. The saga concludes with Katniss (Jennifer Lawerence) and a unit from District 13 going on a mission to the Capitol to assassinate President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and end the war that has engulfed Panem.
If there’s one word to describe the new Hunger Games trailer, it’s “heavy.” Because the game has turned into a war, the stakes are clearly at their peak. Our heroes are not only facing hugely treacherous new threats as they make their march on the Capitol and against Snow, but they are also facing the weight and magnitude of their actions (including the complicated morals of revenge) — and the potential for their failure. Seeing Katniss as (once again) a total badass as she leads her group into the Capitol is an inspiring image, and the trailer lingers on some of those emotional moments in addition to what looks to be a lot of memorable action. It’s intense and epic, and a fitting feel for the franchise’s final installment.
Check out the trailer below. The film opens November 20th, and also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, and Julianne Moore.
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.
