In less than a month The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is due to hit cinemas and there’s little doubt it’ll be a big hit. However as it marks a change for the franchise, so Lionsgate are keen to ensure fans are kept excited.
Now the final trailer has arrived, which may be fairly short but does a great job of setting up the drama and suggesting that now the whole of Panem is the arena.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.’
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is due out in the UK on November 20th, 2014, with the final film (until an inevitable further sequel or spin-off is announced), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, out the same time the following year.
